Topic: It was International Women’s Day!! Choose a book with a badass heroine.
Two of my favourite heroines are Maddie and Julie (Queenie) from Elizabeth Wein’s historical fiction novel Code Name Verity. Set during the Second World War, the book is all about friendship, courage and loyalty. Maddie, a pilot, is forced to crash land in German occupied France. While Maddie is taken in by the French Resistance, her partner Julie is captured by the Nazis and tortured for secrets. The strength these women had was amazing, but what was even more impressive was their dedication to each other.

Least Favourite Book Covers:
1. Czech: Her eyes…so green. It’s like the woman on the cover is seeing into your soul. It freaks me out a bit.
2. Dutch: I really hate the colouring of this cover.
3. Chinese: The cover has nothing to do with the novel. Also, it’s really boring.
