Reading Record | Middle Grade May (Week 2)


My reading record posts are a way for me to document all things bookish and reading in my life - typically you will see these posts on a monthly basis, however readathons and certain books will have their own specific reading record.

Last week I shared the first of many 'Reading Record' posts to come over the month of May, and talked a little about my self imposed challenge to read only middle grade throughout the month - this is week two.

MONDAY 6TH MAY
Starting the week with another Enid Blyton mystery by reading the first half (ish) of The Mystery of Tally-Ho Cottage, which is book number 12 in the The Find-Outers series.

TUESDAY 7TH MAY
Not too much reading done today; a couple more chapters in the Tally-Ho mystery.

WEDNESDAY 8TH MAY
No reading completed today.

THURSDAY 9TH MAY
I finished reading The Mystery of Tally-Ho Cottage today. I'm just loving this series as a whole, and can imagine I would have been obsessed with it had I read them as a child.

This evening I started reading Everdark by Abi Elphinstone. Everdark is a short story, written & released for World Book Day back in March, and is an introduction to a new world (& series) that will be released very soon (end of May here in the UK). 

My first experience with Abi Elphinstone's writing was in a short story collection of winter tales, in which I admired the creativity and immersive nature of her writing. Last year I picked up Sky Song, and truly feel in love with her writing style.

FRIDAY 10TH MAY
Having read the first 5 chapters of Everdark yesterday, today I finished the rest of the book. I know I've already mentioned my love for her writing above, but honestly, I just love the adventures she shares and the characters she crafts. 

Abi Elphinstone champions the 'unlikely' person, and showcases that we all have our own strengths and quirks, with those being what make us unique.  I love this message, but particularly so in a MG book.

SATURDAY 11TH MAY
Ended the day with 10 chapters finished in the next book from the The Find-Outers series.

SUNDAY 12TH MAY
I finished reading The Mystery of the Missing Man by Enid Blyton. Another good read within the series, meaning I now only have 2 more mysteries to follow along with before I finish the collection.

READ THIS WEEK

Happy reading!
