Book Review: One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke

One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke opens with six friends arriving in Greece to celebrate an upcoming wedding. Each one of the women have a secret, and one of them is determined to make sure the wedding doesn't happen. And, one of them ends up dead. Thank you to NetGalley, Penguin Group Putnam, and G.P. Putnam's Sons for a digital Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke. I was ecstatic to be selected to read this book in exchange for my honest review. Wow! I'm at a loss of what to say about One of the Girls because it was that fantastic. Fun. Engrossing. Well Written. Unputdownable. These are just a few words I'd use to describe this novel.  There were red herrings galore. With that being said, I had my suspicions that the "killer" was one of two people, and one of them ended up being the killer, so I was happy with my deduction.

Book Review: The Worst Witch Strikes Again (Worst Witch, #2) by Jill Murphy

The Worst Witch Strikes Again (Worst Witch, #2) by Jill Murphy is the sequel to The Worst Witch (Worst Witch, #1). At just under 100 pages, it was a super quick read for me as an adult. I never knew this was a book series until recently, and I had to buy the series to read.

Children who are just beginning to read chapter books and too young to read the Harry Potter book series should definitely pick up the Worst Witch series to read, especially little girls since it is based on a girls boarding school for witches.

What I loved about this second installment of The Worst Witch book series is that it teaches lessons about friendship, jealousy, and the lesson of getting into trouble for something you did not do.

There isn't anything I can really complain about when it comes to The Worst Witch Strikes Again (Worst Witch, #2). It is age appropriate for kids between the ages five through eight and teaches valuable lessons. Fun and engaging, it even kept my attention as an adult. What more could a parent want from a book for their kids?

The only downfall for me was that it didn't seem quite as in depth as the first installment. Because of that, I only gave The Worst Witch Strikes Again four out of five stars, but I definitely recommend this book to young readers.

Synopsis of The Worst Witch Strikes Again (Worst Witch, #2):  Mildred Hubble is starting the summer term off on the wrong foot despite saving the school at the end of the spring term. Since she was sent to Miss Cackle's office one too many times, Mildred has to prove that she is a responsible student by showing the new student, Enid Nightshade. When things get out of control, Mildred is in trouble once again and only has one more chance before she is expelled.
