The ‘K’ books… #A-Z books 📚

This is an adaptation of something I saw on Twitter – people were posting 26 books in 26 days, each title beginning with a different letter of the alphabet. Don’t worry – I’m planning on taking around 26 months to get to Z. Each month I’ll post a newish book I’ve enjoyed, plus a children’s book and an older book.

 

Today, it’s the ‘K’ books:

 

In this entertaining crime thriller, Julia is about to leave her husband, taking 8-year-old Lucy with her. Meanwhile, two burglars have targeted the house next door – but things go horribly wrong and mother and daughter find themselves in a desperate situation, fighting for their lives. Ann Evans is an accomplished and prolific writer in several genres, with over 30 books published. This is the first of hers I’ve read, but it won’t be the last!

 

 

 

I was almost ready to admit defeat with my ‘K’ children’s book when I remembered this one, which I read at secondary school. Written by Barry Hines, it’s not exactly a cheerful story, but it’s classed as ‘a novel that helped shape modern Britain’, and is definitely worth a read. Fifteen-year-old Billy has one pleasure in life: a wild kestrel that he has raised and tamed himself. The book has been very successfully filmed too, as ‘Kes’.

 

 

 

 

The Kraken Wakes by John Wyndham is one of my all-time favourites. Something – something intelligent – falls to the earth from space to wait in the depths of the ocean. And one day, it pounces. Ships are sunk, people are captured and rolled away. The sea level begins to rise… Journalists Mike and Phyllis Watson are at the centre of action in a human drama that turns into a fight for survival. A chilling book – I love it!

 

 

Coming in April – the ‘L’ books!
