Remember how I took part in a Halloween Readathon last month? Yeah, well… I didn’t do very well. To be honest, I didn’t have very high hopes for myself anyway. I’m so rubbish at reading things within a specific time frame! However, I did manage to read two books from my list: Daughter of the Burning City by Sarah Foody, and The Creakers by Tom Fletcher. That’s what I’m going to be reviewing today!
What silently waits in the shadows at night? What’s under your bed, keeping just out of sight?
Do you ever hear strange, creaking noises at night? Ever wonder what makes those noises? Lucy Dungston always did.
Until, one morning, Lucy discovers that all the grown-ups have disappeared – as if into thin air. Chaos descends as the children in Lucy’s town run riot. It’s mayhem. It’s madness. To most kids, it’s amazing!
But Lucy wants to find out the truth. Lucy lost her dad not long ago, and she’s determined not to lose her mum too. She’s going to get her back – and nothing is going to stop her . . .
. . . except maybe the Creakers.
Looking at my bookshelves, I realised I had a fair few books that would be perfect to read before Halloween. I headed over to Twitter to ask if there are any Halloween-themed readathons going on, and I was in luck! What better time to get through some of my TBR than with a readathon?!

This month, I’m going to join in with Wonderless Reviews’ Halloween Readathon. The goal is to read however many spooky books we want to read between October 10th – October 31st. The only rule is that the books we read have to be horror, thriller and/or have some kind of supernatural element. There are a few extra challenges to go along with it too, so I’ll see if I achieve any!
The lights are in house windows, the trees are on display and the decorations are making everything look festive and wonderful. That could only mean one thing. It’s officially Christmas!!! With only 9 days, I repeat, 9 days till Christmas Day, I thought it was finally time to review one of my most anticipated books this year… The Christmasaurus by Tom Fletcher!
The Christmasaurus is a story about a boy named William Trundle, and a dinosaur, the Christmasaurus. It’s about how they meet one Christmas Eve and have a magical adventure. It’s about friendship and families, sleigh bells and Santa, singing elves and flying reindeer, music and magic. It’s about discovering your heart’s true desire, and learning that the impossible might just be possible.
