(Post 2/3) So. NaNoWriMo.
In the year of 2018, shortly after I finished the first draft of Firfi, I decided to do something totally insane. I developed, planned, and outlined a novel in 19 days (no idea how I did that) and wrote 50,000 words of it in 30. It was awesome.
It was nicknamed Chilbo (don't ask) and aimed at a much younger audience than Firfi. It mostly took place in and around my neighborhood, and was about animals who were secret agents. Unfortunately I stalled at about 64,000 words (which was way too long for the type of book I was trying to write, anyway) and never picked it back up. I still think it's a fun concept, though. It gave me a chance to play around with different personalities of different animals (gangster sparrows, sinister guinea pigs, intelligent chickens), and cover topics that are important to me, like conservation and pet stores (This is the possible future wildlife veterinarian speaking, remember).
HOWEVER, children's fiction is not my passion right now, and I knew even as I was writing it that Chilbo was not what I needed to be writing. I expect to some day pick it back up, maybe write some short stories, but not for a while. I have so many things I want to say right now, so many emotions and inspirations, and children's fiction simply wasn't enough for me.
.
While we're here, let me also say this: I am not doing NaNo this year. It hurts my heart, but my current project is far to important to me and far too complicated to rush. But more on that project later.

the polar bear explorers’ club by alex bell ✨ as it’s been snowing regularly now, i thought it was time to whip out this seemingly appropriate wintery novel. at times it can be a bit predictable but it’s an enjoyable & cozy read. we follow four young explorers who are left to their own devices after being separated from their elders on their first expedition. on their journey to the coldest part of the icelands, they meet up with all sorts of new creatures, friendly and dangerous. it’s got unicorns, fairies, polar bears, & more! 🦄🐾

🎉 HAPPY PUB DAY! 🎉
.
Big thanks to @macmillanaus for sending me these two books! One for Jack and one for me WINK
.
📖 THE QUEEN’S TIGER by Peter Watt
The year is 1857, and army surgeon Peter Campbell and his wife are on their honeymoon in colonial India, but have no idea they are about to be swept up in the chaos of Indian nationalism about to erupt.
.
📖 KIKI & JAX: THE LIFE-CHANGING MAGIC OF FRIENDSHIP by Marie Kondo
Tidying superstar Marie Kondo brings her unique magic to Kiki and Jax, a charming picture book story about how tidying up can spark joy in the lives of young children.
📚
.
Jackson will have his review up for Kiki & Jax tomorrow 😋 … but guys, it’s the cutest book! Kiki has to tidy up her house so that she has space to play with Jax, it’s just adorable. And for the historical fiction buffs out there, Peter Watt’s new novel is telling a story about a part of history that I personally don’t know anything about, which is always intriguing to me.
.
Are you interested in either of these ones?

Today's post is brought to you by the letter K and the number of the stars.

к ιѕ ƒσя кαтнєяιηє αρρℓєgαтє!

QOTD: Have you heard the latest news from Katherine Applegate? Are you a fan of The One and Only Ivan?

It may not be pictured here, but I hand two Readers who loved The One and Only Ivan. And they are so excited that @kaaauthor's next book is The One and Only Bob, based on Ivan's friend, Bob (the dog). It's due out in May next year. I'm hoping I'll have gotten a third reader hooked on Ivan by then and I hope to read it myself come #middlegrademarch.

In the meantime, I believe Reader 1 put Wishtree on her 40 book challenge and I need to remind Reader 2 that he has Crenshaw on the bookshelf. I think my kids have TBR piles as big as mine.

I had a fabulous time with Mom at Bewdley Primary School. We went to see the children in Year 2 to talk about my book, Poppy on Safari and also about how much Mom loves reading and writing and drawing. I had lots of fuss from everyone and I loved every minute...it was great fun. Thank you #bewdleyprimaryschool for making us so welcome. Mom said that she loved hearing the children talk about their pets and how much they love #westmidlandsafaripark (...just don't talk about Cain - he's real scary!!) 😳

Today's post is brought to you by the letter J and the number 10.

𝕁 𝕚𝕤 𝕗𝕠𝕣 𝕁𝕦𝕝𝕪, 𝟙𝟟𝟟𝟞.

QOTD: What is the tenth book on your shelf?

This is Reader 1's top shelf. The tenth book? Chains by @halseanderson. Chains is the first book in the Seeds of America series. Reader 1 has put all three of these books on her 40 book challenge, taking both historical fiction slots as well as a bonus slot. She's been looking forward to making time for this series for awhile.

Synopsis:

As the Revolutionary War begins, thirteen-year-old Isabel wages her own fight...for freedom. Promised freedom upon the death of their owner, she and her sister, Ruth, in a cruel twist of fate become the property of a malicious New York City couple, the Locktons, who have no sympathy for the American Revolution and even less for Ruth and Isabel. When Isabel meets Curzon, a slave with ties to the Patriots, he encourages her to spy on her owners, who know details of British plans for invasion. She is reluctant at first, but when the unthinkable happens to Ruth, Isabel realizes her loyalty is available to the bidder who can provide her with freedom.

Book of the Day: A Little Princess. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My Review: When I was a little girl I wore out my VHS tape (yes I am that old) of Shirley Temple as A Little Princess. So when I had the chance to read the book as an adult I jumped on it. The book was different and more beautiful than the movie. I say beautiful because I felt the feelings and emotions of Sara. As you read you really experience the cruelty she received from Miss Minchin.
A Little Princess is a tradition that should be shared with generations of little girls around the world.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher, Dover Publications, through NetGalley. Any and all opinions expressed in the above review are entirely my own.
NetGalley: When Sara Crewe arrives at Miss Minchin's boarding school, the well-to-do student has every material comfort that her doting father can buy as well as the headmistress's fawning approval. But when Sara falls upon hard times and is left to the mercy of the suddenly vindictive headmistress, she must rely on her optimistic outlook, lively imagination, and innate goodness to see her through a reversal of fortunes.

Here's the finished front cover of "Morgan and the Monster of the Deep": available soon from AddieAbacus.com - the sequel to "Morgan and the Forty Thieves" 🌟 these are fantastical adventure chapter books, perfect for young readers, and problem solving and mathematical concepts are woven into the narrative! I wish I had books like these when I was younger. 📚

📗BOTD📗 "The Song of Seven" by Tonke Dragt, Translated by Laura Watkinson | #childrensbooks #fantasy #fairytale | ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ | #blog #thebookshelfcorner #bookoftheday
.
📗ABOUT📗
Seven paths, seven unlikely friends, and one extraordinary adventure featuring magicians, secret passages, conspiracies, hidden treasures, a black cat with green eyes and a sealed parchment which predicts the future.
.
At the end of every schoolday, new teacher Mr Van der Steg entertains his pupils with tall tales of incredible events, which he claims really happened to him – involving hungry lions and haunted castles, shipwrecks and desert islands. One day, when he can’t think of anything suitably exciting to tell them, he invents a story about a very important letter which he’s expecting that evening, with news of a perilous mission. Evening arrives and so, to his surprise, does an enigmatic letter…
.
And so Mr Van der Steg is drawn into a real-life adventure, featuring a grumpy coachman, a sinister uncle, eccentric ancestors, a hidden treasure, an ancient prophecy and Geert-Jan, a young boy who is being kept prisoner in the mysterious House of Stairs.
.
.
📗Excerpt from My Review:📗
"The Song of Seven by Tonke Dragt was a true joy to read. It is perhaps the most exciting fairytale mystery/adventure I have ever read. Yes, it is that good...an unexpectedly wonderful story of truly unimaginable proportions."
.

Who is your favourite character from 'Harry Potter'? ✨✨
I’m re-reading this book because I can never get enough of it, I’m head over heels for every little thing in this book series. I’ve even read the abridged versions of this book, basically I’m mad about it. 'Harry Potter' is one of the best children’s fiction novel, and it is highly loved by the millennials. The narration of this book has been done with so much of ease that, as I read I felt like being followed into the magical world of wizards. For the people who like fantasy this book is their final destination.
J.K. Rowling has put her vivid imagination into words so beautifully that I was mesmerised. This book is so powerful and hard to resist and I’m sure that I’m not the only one who is in love with the 'Harry Potter' books so passionately. Neville Longbottom is my favourite character form the book, well because he seemed to be just a clumsy as me.
The adaptation of the novel to film was equally good, and I rarely ever like movies based on novels, but the gravity of the situation is that this series is just too special to be described in words. This 20th anniversary edition is outstanding and it is available in the form of all the four Hogwarts houses along with their descriptions.
