It's been a very very long summer. I broke up from uni sometime in april or may and I only just went back! I spent my time thinking about my masters project, doing work experience at publishing companies and writing a young fiction book (which I have now finished!) Over the months I discovered many wonderful books and thought that I would share some of them with you!
Firstly I want to talk about Jill Thompson. In my eyes she is AMAZING! Well actually I think anyone would think her pictures are amazing. She just seems to have such a knack with watcercolour. She makes it look so effortless.
'On a pistachio day, Delerium and Barnabas went out wandering . They sniffed the air and tasted the words that were particularly crispy on the tongue like twinkle and citrus.'
There is also a second Little Endless picture book called Deleriums Party. I found it a few weeks ago whilst in Nottingham with Henry. It was one of those really cool moments when I saw it in the comic book shop and was like 'wow I didn't know another one had come out!' I love it when that happens. Of course I bought it immediatley!
Ok and so now onto Magic Trixie. I think she is possibly my favourite of all Jill Thompsons characters. She is just so cute! Also I love the whole picture book comic thing. As a person who isn;t really a comic book or graphic novel reader at all these books really appeal to me. They're not too comicky but they're not just picture books either.

I looove the little black cat Scratches and his bendy little legs too.
I think everyone should be introduced to Magic Trixie!
So yes, this concludes this post. I have such a lot of books I want to talk about that they are going to have to have separate posts!
