Look What I'm Reading! Lily Weigl Junior Reviewer

I am Lily and I love to read and draw. 

The reason I love to read is that every book is different and has a different idea/concept. 

I also love to disappear into another world that is completely different to ours. It makes me feel as if I have this superpower to open a portal to another world!

My favourite books are Warriors by Erin Hunter, Wings of Fire by Tui T Sutherland and Trials of Apollo by Rick Riordan. 

I recommend all of these books to anyone above the age of eight or nine.

Which children’s book are you currently reading?   
Warriors by Erin Hunter 

Can you tell us in two sentences what the book is about?
Cats hunting in the wilderness, danger lurking around every corner. May Starclan be with them.

How much did you enjoy/are enjoying this title?
It is exhilarating and there is always a new problem in every sub-series.

What made you choose this title? Was it a review, advertising, the cover, the blurb, the author/illustrator, or the subject/genre?
The editor Tui T Sutherland (who is my favourite author) made me want to experiment with it and see what is was like.

What other titles are on your bedside table /To Read Pile? 
A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron, Dragonslayer by Tui T. Sutherland, Land of Stories by Chris Colfer, Trials of Apollo- Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan, Wings of Fire by Tui T Sutherland 

How did you come by these titles: personal choice/request, publisher’s review copy, or other?
They are mostly from my top favourite authors: Rick Riordan, Tui Sutherland and Chris Colfer.

Do you have a favourite genre? If so, what is it, and why do you prefer it? 
I love fantasy, action, adventure, mystery and magic because these can all create multiple new worlds that are completely different from our world. I love looking at how I world could have turned out in different eras - future, past and present. 

Do you read from printed books or some other medium? Please expand a little on the why of your choice.
I read printed books at all times because I find it more beneficial for my health and I focus more when I do not have a screen in front of me that I am reading from (and I can’t be distracted by YouTube).
