Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my blog today! As you can tell from recent weather it's becoming utterly freezing! Autumn is slipping away and winter is approaching which means snow! Not just snow but Halloween, fireworks, Christmas, presents, interesting prayers and carols to sing. Today I've got loads of things I want to tell you and recommend to you. So of course we have our book and author of the day and they are... Million Dollar Mates and Megan McDonald. Million Dollar Mates is all about a teenage girl named Jess who is having a rather tough time. Her mum is dead, her parents have been split up and to make it worse now she's got to move to a new house with her Dad, brother Charlie and Dave the cat. At first Jess is not at all sure about the change and misses her Gran back at home but when Jess finds out that A-listers will be living in the posh apartments nearby Jess starts to cheer up. But for how long? This book is probably for nine and up and just so you know, the author of the book is called Cathy Hopkins and she is one of the most exciting writers in the world.

Megan McDoanld is an author that you might have heard of and she is stunning. She writes the Judy Moody series and the Stink series too. I have read some of the Judy Moody's and they are rare (meaning trust me they rock!). I'm reading Judy Moody And The Not Bummer Summer at the moment and I found out that it's the book of the new screenplay!
