It’s that time again! Time for another Mini Review Monday. The books I’m reviewing this week are totally different to one another but ones that I both highly enjoyed!
Ghostcatcher (Potkin and Stubbs #3) by Sophie Green
Published by: Piccadilly Press
Released: 5th March 2020
Peligan City is still haunted and City Hall’s initiative to solve the problem is an outfit called Ghostcatcher. Every night they patrol the streets with their high-tech equipment, following reports of spectral activity. But they are only hunting one spook now; the Herald calls it the Final Ghost and it is public enemy number one.
But to Lil Potkin he is Nedly Stubbs, her investigative partner and best friend.
Luckily, Nedly has Lil on his side. Now an apprentice reporter for the Klaxon, she manages to talk her way into a job shadowing intrepid journalist Marsha Quake, who is writing a feature on Ghostcatcher.
With Lil’s help Nedly is able to stay one step ahead of the game, but for how long?
The Potkin and Stubbs series has been one of my favourite middle grade trilogies and with Ghostcatcher being the final book, I couldn’t wait to read the epic conclusion. Let me tell you this…it certainly didn’t disappoint! From the first chapter you are thrust into the action and this, makes you want to carry on reading (I couldn’t put the book down!). The way the story is written makes you worry for a few characters and I had my fingers crossed that they were going to make it out okay. The fast paced plot really does leave you wanting more and by the time I reached the end I had to let out a sigh of relief. In my opinion, Ghostcatcher was such a fitting way to end such an incredible trilogy and I will solely miss Lil, Nedly, Abe and the gang.
Heartstopper Vol 3 by Alice Oseman
I adore the Heartstopper series, so much that I rushed to my local library to get my reservation of it as soon as it was in. This volume, I’ll have to admit is probably my favourite so far. What I loved about it was that we got to see Charlie and Nick’s relationship grow and how they had to choose whether or not to come out to their friends. The little subplots with their friends was also really cute to see and we got to see some romances come out of that, which did melt my heart. In volume 3, we do see the story start to get a bit deeper and start to focus on some pretty important topics. For example, eating disorders and mental health. I am really intrigued to see where this takes the characters in the next instalments.
