The Dying of the Light (Skulduggery Pleasant, Book&hellip by Derek Landy
5.0 out of 5 stars So AWESOME, 10 Sep 2014
Contains Spoilers!!!

If you have been following my blog for a while you will know that I am a massive Skulduggery Pleasant fan. I have been following this series for years, have met Derek Landy 5 times now, and have every single book by him signed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful, 27 Aug 2014
I love Sarah Crossan, she's one of my favourite authors the Breathe series is totally amazing. So when I heard she had another book out I put a request in straight away.

Apple is thirteen years old and struggling to work out where she fits in, her mum walked out on her when she was very small and her Dad is focused on his new wife so Apple has grown up with her Grandmother. Things were going well, but her grandma is strict when it comes to going out, so she struggles to fit in at school and make friends.

When her mum walks back into her life it looks like things are going to turn around for her, cool mum, new freedom what could go wrong?

But things are never… Read more
