Throwback Thursday involves me picking a book or book series I’ve previously read to talk about, today I’m going to discuss The Half Bad trilogy by Sally Green!
The Half Bad Trilogy follows the story of Nathan, a boy whose mother was a good witch & whose father is the most evil witch in the world. The series takes us through Nathan’s fight against a world that sees him as an abomination, & his journey of meeting his father & finding out the truth about the relationship his parents once had. We also get thrown headfirst into a very deeply rooted fight between good & evil, something that is both a lot bigger than Nathan, but also totally revolved around him & his existence. This series is full of action, strength & emotion, & I loved it.
Today one of my favourite reads of the year is finally being released into the big wide world! The Red Ribbon by Lucy Adlington is an emotional rollercoaster that filled me with so much sadness, but also so much hope.
The Red Ribbon tells the story of Ella, a young Jewish girl who is sent to Auschwitz during The Second World War. In order to survive Ella uses her skills as a seamstress to gain some favour from the Nazis keeping her captive – but as time goes on Ella starts to realise the harsh reality of what she’s living through & things start to crash down around her.
