Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

By J. K. Rowling

Illustrated by Jim Kay

ISBN 9781408845677

Bloomsbury

 

This is another beautifully illustrated collectors edition from Bloomsbury Publishers.

It doesn’t matter that I already have the set in paperback and hardback, this is something I just have to have, especially as I have the others in this beautiful format. Actually the original copies in the house belong to my now adult son, these illustrated ones are mine. The story is still the wonderful world of magic and mystery, although in this particular book the series takes a more dramatic turn and becomes darker and scarier, and sad too. It doesn’t really matter how old you are because if you are a fan of Harry Potter, then you are a fan for life. It also doesn’t matter how many times you read the books, there is always something new to discover that makes you suddenly think, so that’s why such and such happened.

Jim Kay brings a whole new element to the stories with his magical illustrations. There are stunning illustrations both in colour but also black and white which add mood and mysticism. Stunning.

Play around on the Wizarding World website to see much more.

Hysteria by Megan Miranda

So cool to see this new trailer for Megan Miranda’s latest young adult book.
I love the cover too.

Mallory’s boyfriend is dead. Mallory stabbed him but can’t remember anything of that night.  Attempting to start afresh, her parents send her to boarding school but someone or something has followed her. She feels a hand on her shoulder late at night. She hears someone whispering out her name. Then a student is found dead and once again Mallory is the opnly thing people are talking about. Who or what is out there and can she escape her past?

Check out Megan Miranda herself introducing her novel.

Shiverton Hall

By Emerald Fennell

Check out what the  Bloomsbury  publishers are saying. Very cool!

“They slowed as they reached the gate; two stone columns, each with its own crumbling angel perched on top. The angels held up a rusty, wrought-iron arch that read, in curling, serpentine letters: SHIVERTON HALL. Arthur Bannister has been unexpectedly accepted into Shiverton Hall, which, as it turns out, is an incredibly spooky school, full of surprises. And it is just as well that Shiverton Hall has made its offer, because Arthur had a horrible time at his previous school, and was desperate to leave. Timely indeed …But Arthur has no time to worry about the strange coincidence.  He is too busy trying to make head or tail of Shiverton Hall, dogged as it is by tales of curses and bad fortune. At least there are a few friendly faces: George, who shows him around; also Penny and Jake. But not all the faces are friendly. There are the bullying Forge triplets for starters. And then there is the acid tongue of the headmistress, Professor Long-Pitt, who seems to go out of her way to make Arthur’s life a misery.

Luckily Arthur has his new friends to cheer him up. Although there are some friends that you don’t want to have at all, as Arthur is soon to find out.
love the cover of this book and the story is right up my alley so I can’t wait for this to be published. (Only a few weeks away and I will be in the shops the minute it comes out)
