Hello and happy December! Today I’m part of the book tour for A Wolf for a Spell by Karah Sutton so keep reading if you’d like to hear more about this whimsical middle grade fantasy book, read my review and check out my moodboard!
Genre: Middle Grade Fantasy
Publisher: Random House Children’s – Knopf Books for Young Readers
Synopsis:The Girl Who Drank the Moon meets Pax in this fantastical tale of a wolf who forms an unlikely alliance with Baba Yaga to save the forest from a wicked tsar.
Since she was a pup, Zima has been taught to fear humans—especially witches—but when her family is threatened, she has no choice but to seek help from the witch Baba Yaga.
Baba Yaga never does magic for free, but it just so happens that she needs a wolf’s keen nose for a secret plan she’s brewing… Before Zima knows what’s happening, the witch has cast a switching spell and run off into the woods, while Zima is left behind in Baba Yaga’s hut—and Baba Yaga’s body!
Meanwhile, a young village girl named Nadya is also seeking the witch’s help, and when she meets Zima (in Baba Yaga’s form), they discover that they face a common enemy. With danger closing in, Zima must unite the wolves, the witches and the villagers against an evil that threatens them all.
HI! All the books I bought in September have finally arrived and I’m so excited to read them and possibly rearrange my current shelf setup to accommodate them!
All of these books are used (except one) and all of them are from awesomebooks! If you’ve never gone to check out their website, I’d totally recommend it. It doesn’t have a great variety, but if you’re looking for an older book or books by popular authors you’ll find them there from as cheap as 2,50€. Shipping is free to the UK and around 3,50€ for the whole order if you live in Europe (though I’m not sure how much is the shipping is to countries outside of Europe).
A couple of years ago I finally decided to give middle grade a shot and I was blown away by how much I loved it! But, when I was growing up, I read YA or even Adult Fantasy and I found this type of books profoundly annoying and the few that were translated were not appealing to me at all.
Goodreads//: Trouble is haunting Cassidy Blake . . . even more than usual. She (plus her ghost best friend, Jacob, of course) are in Paris, where Cass’s parents are filming their TV show about the world’s most haunted cities. Sure, it’s fun eating croissants and seeing the Eiffel Tower, but there’s true ghostly danger lurking beneath Paris, in the creepy underground Catacombs.
When Cass accidentally awakens a frighteningly strong spirit, she must rely on her still-growing skills as a ghosthunter — and turn to friends both old and new to help her unravel a mystery. But time is running out, and the spirit is only growing stronger. And if Cass fails, the force she’s unleashed could haunt the city forever.
