Books Read in September 2017



Lisa Lueddecke

Ósa knows her village is in danger when the sky over Skane glows red. Last time the lights turned crimson, a plague spread through their village, killing many – including Ósa’s mother. With little love from her father and sister, Ósa spends most of her time with her friend Ivar. Together they try to discover the meaning behind the red lights to prepare for what’s coming, but they find an even greater threat is right on the horizon.

I couldn’t get enough of this gorgeous book. It’s so magical and just became my new favourite thing. I’m craving more of this world, of Ósa’s fierce determination and Ivar’s caring nature. I loved the atmosphere, the tales and superstition, and was completely swept away in this fantasy world. One of the best books I’ve read all year.

A series of gruesome murders has this small town on edge. The students of Osborne High are all potential targets as rumours spread and terror grows. This was a quick, gripping read with characters to root for and a mystery to uncover – who’s the killer? What’s the pattern? Who could be next? This one had me guessing until the end. A scary page turner with a Scream-vibe… If you like horror, consider this for your 2017 Halloween reading list and prepare for a scare!
