The Runaway Troll by Matt Haig - When Troll-Son runs away from home, he decides to leave the Shadow Forest behind and move in with his idol, Samuel Blink. Samuel isn’t thrilled with the idea of hiding a runaway troll, especially one who copies everything he does, even (ugh!) using his toothbrush. But should Samuel return Troll-Son to the Shadow Forest? After all, he’s running from something. What danger still lurks there?
Waitrose Food Illustrated voted this book the 'most useful cookbook of all time'! So I bought it. Its brilliant recipes are homely and delicious. My copy is battered and splattered. Highly recommend for those who love to cook.
A Most Improper Magick by Stephanie Burgis - "I was twelve years of age when I chopped off my hair, dressed as a boy, and set off to save my family from impending ruin. I made it almost to the end of my front garden..." Magic may be the greatest scandal in Regency England. But that's not going to stop Kat Stephenson when there are highwaymen to foil, sinister aristocrats to defeat...and true loves to capture for her two older sisters.
