It is the last book group until after Easter. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter break and get a visit from the Easter Bunny 🙂
This week’s book was The Wolf Princess by Cathryn Constable.
The plot follows orphan Londoner Sophie Smith as she travels to Russia on a school trip with her two best friends. What she isn’t expecting is to be abandoned at a deserted train station before being whisked away to the Volkonsky Winter Palace where she meets the princess Anna Volkonskaya. It’s up to Sophie and her friends to uncover the mysteries of the palace and what Princess Anna Volkonskaya has planned for Sophie and her friends. Along the way Sophie uncovers some secrets about herself and meets some haunting wolves. The book is full of beautiful detailed descriptions of ice castles and snowy Russia.
Eliza – ‘I liked how there were Russian words in the book as it made it feel more exciting’
Lily-‘The Princess was very mysterious you didn’t know what would happen next’
Overall The Wolf Princess was rated 3/5
