Good morning, book friends! Last week my kids and I finished reading the @owlcratejr September book of the month, The Girl and the Ghost by Hanna Alkaf. You guys, we were all blown away!! This book was terrifying at times, but it was also so sweet. It’s about feeling alone in the world, first friendships, and a ghost you love, but will also hate. Plus, the writing is absolutely beautiful and it will hook you right from the start. I seriously wanted to just read ahead without my kids, but I’m so glad I didn’t because it was such a unique experience to have these strong emotions at the same time as my kids. My almost 9 year old son was so moved by the ending that he cried. This is the first book that has ever brought him that type of emotion, and it wasn’t a bad thing at all. I think he’ll remember this story for the rest of his life💜
If you are still looking for the perfect spooky season read I highly recommend The Girl and the Ghost. We all gave this one 5 glorious ⭐️s!
What’s a book that has brought you to tears? This one almost did, but as a momma I was more concerned in the moment of giving snugs and love to my little one who’s heart was a bit hurt. A book that majorly made me cry was A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
