    I have not read any of these books but they look very interesting so I might try one. Now I am reading the spooks series and am on book two out of thirteen. However, there are two more extras called SPOOKS Witches and The SPOOKS Bestiary.

    i have read…
    the girl of ink and stars
    cog heart
    goldfish boy
    i enjoyed both cog heart and goldfish boy, however, i did not like the girl of ink and stars because they didn’t make the plot very clear because there was too much description.
