The Next Harry Potter?

Book Review: Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend

Morrigan let Jupiter’s overcoat fall in a pile at her feet. Climbing onto the balustrade, she opened her new oilskin umbrella with shaking hands.

Don’t look down don’t look down don’t look down.

The air felt thin. ‘Step boldly,’ Morrigan whispered.

Then she closed her eyes.

And jumped.”

– Nevermoor The Trials of Morrigan Crow


Each month, I usually do a month-end wrap-up to recap the books I’ve reviewed that month and highlight any other posts I’ve written as well as upcoming reads and posts for the new month ahead. However, since I only had three reviews in November, I will be rolling them into my year-end wrap-up in late December. November was a tough month with a very sad loss for our family. So I spent some time away from the blog and work to be with family. Even though I only reviewed three books in November, I am pleased to report that they were all books I enjoyed. I will highlight those titles as well as my book plans for the New Year in an upcoming post. For now, I’d like to talk about a new release that I’ve been waiting to read since early fall – Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow.

In this blog, I will recap my September reads, highlight my title of the month, and share what is upcoming in October.

So, here it is, the list of children’s and middle grade titles I am most excited about for Fall!
