The concept is interesting. A Tudor Turk is set in Istanbul in 1591, and follows the story of Will and Awa. It’s unusual to find historical YA novels, but after enjoying A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, I can really see how the idea works.
They say ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ but I’m definitely guilty of that! I love book covers, and they are mainly what makes me buy the book. This means that I’ve got plenty of books with beautiful covers, and here’s all of my favourites!

The first time I ever read this book, I DNF’d it at about halfway through. I bought it just after it was released from a little bookshop in Cornwall, desperate to read it after all of the positive reviews I had seen all over social media.
Poems to Live Your Life By is a book of poetry collated and illustrated by Chris Riddell. People who read my blog regularly know that I obsess over Chris Riddell, which explains my reasons for buying this.
