May’s Book of the Month Reads

May is just round the corner already, so what will we be reading this month?

Fallen – Lauren Kate

What if the person you were meant to be with could never be yours? 17-year-old Lucinda falls in love  with a gorgeous, intelligent boy, Daniel, at her new school, the grim, foreboding Sword & Cross …only to  find out that Daniel is a fallen angel, and that they have spent lifetimes finding and losing one another as  good & evil forces plot to keep them apart. Some angels are destined to fall…

Granny – Anthony Horowitz

Twelve-year-old Joe Warden isn’t happy. He has rich, uncaring parents and is virtually a prisoner in the huge family mansion, Thattlebee Hall. Worst of all, though, is his granny. Not only is she physically repulsive, she’s horribly mean. She has the look in her eye of a predatory crocodile and Joe starts to suspect that she has unpleasant designs on him. But what are they and how can he foil them?

Chips, Beans and Limousines – Leila Rasheed

Bathsheba Clarice de Trop thinks she’s a star. Well, her mum is a world-famous novelist whose books are all about the amazing adventures of her fabulous daughter, and of course the stories must be true. But when Bathsheba is confronted by her down-and-out father, and discovers that her role in the fantastic new Bathsheba film will be played by hot US actress Avocado Dieppe, she has to face reality. She might not be as famous as she liked to think, but maybe she can still be a star in her own right.
