Amelia Maylock, book one; The 12th year awakening. (Amelia Maylock)


I've included a link to the first book in my 'Amelia Maylock' series for you to consider.
There are 4 books in the series so far, and a minimum of 9 for the full series. They are in paperback and Kindle, with hardcovers being added.

Thank you.

Maybe she would like Cranwood by J.Bryer. It's new for Kindle at a great price. The paperback will be out in September. It's in the paranormal genre about a sixteen year old who receives messages from the spirit world. It is on the spooky side, if she likes that. Overall it's a fun fast paced read.

I am the author of a fantastic new adventure story. If you like fast paced stories with lots of exciting adventure, please give it a try. My name is Martin King and I would love anyone's feedback that wants to read it. Everyone (up to now) keep telling me it's good so I hope you won't be dissappointed.Jack Hunter - Secret of the King

Check out reviews on Amazon for Diary of a Parent Trainer by Jenny Smith published by Scholastic - comic novel for 10-15 year olds which touches on serious issues but with heartwarming ending. Good fun ;-) And nice bit of romance at the end...

if you like humour and fantasy and something a bit different try Mother Swap by Debbie Richardson. My 11 and a half year old son loves it and then if you do enjoy it there are 3 more books in the seriesMother Swap (Mother Swap series)

I recommend the
'Medusa Project' series by Sophie McKenzie
'Finding Sky' by Joss Stirling
'The Vampire Diaries' series by L.J Smith
The Medusa Project is mainly based around fantasy and Finding Sky and The Vamprie Diaries are supernatural/fantasy and romance.

Try ART PENGRIFFIN & THE CURSE OF THE FOUR by Norman Revill & Clive Fleury, a fantasy novel about a modern-day 13 year old boy in a sleepy Welsh town who doesn't realise he's Merlin's son. According to Kindle Book Reviewer Sarah Burns: "This book is brilliant... a REAL gem. The writing is fluid and the story is exciting. It flows really well and keeps you gripped. The book is full of magic, intrigue and mystery."

If you like adventure and have a sense of humour, you might enjoy the first two volumes of my series The Runaway Children Volume 1

I you like adventure and have a sense of humour, you might enjoy The Runaway Children series by Jacy Brean. Volume 1 - Flight from the Nunjas; and Volume 2 - The Astonishing Mr Smyle are both available to download from Amazon - and the last of the trilogy is due to go live for Kindle any time now.

Have you tried The Immortal series by Alyson Noel? I'm 11 and I have read them, but they are teen books, and they are REALLY GOOD. It's a series of 6 - Evermore, Blue Moon, Shadowland, Dark Flame, Night Star, and Everlasting - and they are about a girl called Ever who's physic, and eventually finds out why, and also meets the man of her dreams, but will they be able to stay together? Something bad happens at the end of Blue Moon which will question that.
Fallen series by Lauren Kate - Fallen, Torment, Passion, Fallen In Love, Rapture. They are about Fallen angels, and they are a thriller / romance romance. They are awesome books.
Then there's the Wings series by Aprilynne Pike - Wings, Spells, Wild and Destined. They are about a girl called Laurel who finds out she is a faerie. WOW, those books are so good.
The 13 Treasures series - The 13 Treasures, The 13 Curses, and The 13 Secrets - they are about a girl called Tanya who has the ability to see faeries, and these faeries haunt and bully her, and make her scared of them. WOAH, really good books.
Last of all, The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins - The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay. They are slightly scary, well, depending on your tastes. There are quite a lot of deaths. But you should DEFO read them, as they are a guaranteed good read. There, I have listed all my fave books. I loved them, and I hope you will too!

Try 'The Psychic Detective Agency' by Sally Morgan. Impressive read, bit paranormal, bit weird, very funny, perfectly aimed at 11-16 year olds with sharp minds. Hope that helps.
