Books I've read this week

 Tales From Witch Way Wood: Crash 'N' Bang by Kaye Umansky
Children's, 7 years +
(A book that made me laugh and cry, and continue loving fairies!  Review coming soon...)

Invisible Fiends:  Doc Mortis by Barry Hutchison
Children's Horror, 10 years +
(I would call this extreme horror, being freaked out is an understatement. It's a brilliant book though...)

The Donut Diaries of Dermot Mulligan by Anthony McGowan

(Hilarious diary of an overweight boy who battles against donuts, life at secondary school, and his bizarre family.)

Saving Mississippi by Cornelia Funke

Million Dollar Mates: Paparazzi Princess by Cathy Hopkins
Young Adult, Comedy
(Importance of charity is made clear to a still grieving Jess, as well as learning the harsher realities of life besides fun with her friends.)

Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Young Adult, Paranormal
(Bryn is human and uses all tricks in the book to keep herself safe from the family she was placed in when little, who aren't always as loving as she needs.)

Sweethearts Forget Me Not by Jo Cotteril
Children's, 10 years +
(Kate goes through a hard emotional journey of mourning, and is able to help others regain their life too.)

Pocket Cats #7: Double Dare by Kitty Wells

Great week! All these books sound really interesting. I have Forget-Me-Not, but I haven't had chance to read it yet. Thanks for posting! :]

Just catching up on Google Reader. Glad you read and enjoyed Saving Mississippi! I love that it was originally written in German.
