There's a lot of things in fiction books and movies that I wish were real Fairies, Demigods, Dragons the list goes on. But what about Food? There have been countless times where I've wanted to reach into a page or a screen and just eat the scrummy food...based on that here is my top 5 fictional foods that I would most like to try.
he Story of Lale Sokolov is sadly not based on fiction, so I cannot in any capacity critique the story, only the storytelling. I was amazed by Lale’s ability to survive and the way he put himself at risk to take care of others. This story showed how even in the worst imaginable conditions hope could be found, friendships could be made and lives can be saved. The love story was of course very special and beautiful especially as its true. However, I didn't find myself emotionally affected until the authors note where we learn what happened to Lale and Gita after the war.
Such a cute book! I was worried that I wouldn’t have the same appreciation of Jaqueline Wilson at 22 compared to when I was 12.

I loved how the book addresses real issues that many young children go through.Primarily, Jess Beaker’s mixed feelings about her mum's new relationship.

I went into this book with lousy expectations after reading polarising Goodreads reviews. Despite numerous reviews complaining about the boring narrative and laborious pace of this book; I personally found it well paced and hard to put down. That said I can acknowledge on reflection that there didn’t really seem to be much of a plot. I believe this is intentional as the book was crafted to seem like the retelling of a handful of days in Holden's life, rather than an adventure novel.
