What am I reading? Mrs Berryman


I am three quarters of the way through this book at the moment. It’s a mystery, and quite spooky really. Something is scratching around in the attic above Alison’s room. Yet the only thing up there is a stack of grimy old plates. Alison and her stepbrother, Roger, discover that the flowery patterns on the plates, when traced onto paper, can be fitted together to create owls-owls that disappear when no one is watching. With each vanished owl, strange events begin to happen.

It’s a gripping and creepy plot and I’m really enjoying it.

What am I reading? Mrs Crofts

I have just started reading this after it was recommended to me by several people.  It starts with a shipwreck and a baby girl saved from the sea, found floating in a cello case.   Little Sophie is looked after by her eccentric guardian Charles and seems determined to find her mother, who she believes is still alive.

I’m already hooked – will review it when I’ve finished reading it!
