And that means he has the power to undo any decision he’s ever made. At first, he thinks the power to shift is pretty cool. But as his world starts to unravel around him he realises that each…

REVIEW// The Wind Singer (Wind on Fire #1) by William Nicholson

Kestrel Hath’s schoolroom rebellion against the stifling caste system of Aramanth leads to explosive consequences for her and her family: they are relegated to the city’s lowest caste and are ostracized.

REVIEW// My Swordhand Is Singing by Marcus Sedgwick

REVIEW// My Swordhand Is Singing by Marcus Sedgwick

In a bitter winter, Tomas and his son, Peter, settle in a small village as woodcutters. Tomas digs a channel of fast-flowing waters around their hut so that they have their own little island kingdom. Peter doesn’t understand why his father has done this, or why his father carries a long, battered box, whose mysterious contents he is forbidden to know. 
But Tomas is a man with a past–a past that is…

Harry was the favorite kid and he wasn’t even an official part of the family

Because Molly knows exactly how the Dursleys treat him. There’s no way Ron wouldn’t tell her. And Molly Weasley is a Mother. She gets a capital M because she is goddamn phenomenal at what she does. When she hears Harry Potter is on the train to Hogwarts in Book 1, her reaction isn’t to be starstruck. It’s to say “that poor dear had to come here all on his own.” Molly Weasley loves harder than anyone. She loves like it’s her sole reason for being. And when she hears there’s a poor boy who has never known love his whole life… how could she not?

In Year One Molly Weasley knit Harry a Weasley family sweater and made him homemade chocolate so he would have something to open on Christmas DON’T TOUCH ME

could I also just add that kids from abusive households tend to assume that yelling is directed at them and/or it heralds something bad for them so she’s making extra sure that he knows that this is not his fault and she’s not actually mad at him.

Also look at his reaction, he tenses and looks to Ron and the Twins for support.

REVIEW// My Fortnight In Books!

So this internship at Puffin (which you can read about Week 1 of here and Week 2 of here) has given me an awful lot of time for reading both to and from on the train. On my journeys I have managed to read a total of 9 books, which is marvellous as it lowers my humungous TBR pile and increases my book count for 2014! (PS: I am now at 43 thanks to this! BOOM!)

So I thought, as I physically will not…
