8 one line reviews - Little M

Here are eight one line reviews of books that Little M has read this year but has not reviewed.

Covers for Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce, A World Between Us by Lydia Syson, Bluefish by Pat Schmatz, A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, Hold On by Alan Gibbons and Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Cosmic - John Cottrell Boyce
Very funny; good book; love how a boy looks like a 30 year old.

Uglies - Scott Westerfeld
Dystopian; I liked it; very good; would like to read the rest of the trilogy.

Love Ya Babe - Chris Higgins (not pictured)
Funny book though I didn’t think I would like it as much as I did.

Hold On - Alan Gibbons
A very emotional book which shows friendship and how serious bullying is. Excellent

A Boy and a Bear in a Boat - Dave Shelton
I found it too young for me, so I didn’t like it that much, the sea monster ruined it. An okay book

A World Between Us - Lydia Syson
A very thought provoking book, it is set in the Spanish Civil war and when you read it you learn a lot. An excellent, excellent book.

Now for Bluefish and A Monster Calls.......



Bluefish - Pat Schmatz
Very sad, it made me cry when the dog died; a very, very good novel.

A Monster Calls - Patrick Ness
Extremely sad, made me cry at the end when his mum passes away.


  1. I like these one line reviews - straightforward and right to the point.
    I knew about the dog in Bluefish though. Bluefish won our Bank Street children's book award last year.

    1. Oh the dog! Lovely novel, Bluefish.

  2. I love the idea of this!! I read so many books I don't review, this would be a perfect way to get my thoughts out on them. Plus sometimes it's so hard to be concise! Little M did a fab job

    1. I agree; good job Little M and like Cait, I think I might do something like this for the books I don't review.

  3. I've read all of Chris Higgins' books but one so I'm pleased to see that you enjoyed Love Ya Babe. Really nice idea to do these reviews! :)

    1. Big Chris Higgins' fan then Lucy!?
