Agent Zaiba Investigates The Missing Diamonds by Annabelle Sami

*I was kindly gifted a copy of this book by the publisher.

This is one of the middle-grade books i’ve had my eye on for quite some time. I remember back in Feburary almost picking this up in a train station book shop (remember those things?!) and then immediately regretting not doing. It slipped out from my mind for a while until we announced our Crime readthon, hosted with Lois, and the lovely Charlie at Little Tiger offered to send us a copy to review.

Gracefully Grayson by Ami Polonsky (Blogmas)

I picked up Gracefully Grayson last year once we started to up our game with our LGBTQ+ Book Club. I figured at some point that the day would come when we wanted a trangender representative book – although that day has come and gone, we didn’t read Gracefully Grayson, so i picked it up myself.

City Of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab (Blogmas)

Book Review Header

I feel ashamed that i’ve never finished a Victoria Schwab book until City Of Ghosts. I’ve always wanted to pick up one of her books, but the length of most of them intimidated me quite a lot, so when i found out she was releasing a middle-grade ghost book, i jumped at picking it up as soon as it landed in shops.
