Eli is leaving!!! :The Bone Sparrow
I am so sad that Eli is leaving so soon in the story because he was my favourite character! When the book had that long and beautiful description of the snow and hot chocolate I was so happy that Eli was going to better place... and then I was crushed at the line ''But Eli isn't going to the snow''. :-( However, I am also glad that Subhi and Jimmie have finally met and are contemplating each other after their first meeting. Jimmie obviously is intrigued by the fact that Subhi can read and the book suggests that she will use him to read her Mum's stories. I also think Harvey is amazing, but Beaver is my worst nightmare, and the talking duck's humour is fabulous! BTW i will update the blog every 5 chapters (I've just finished chapter 10). The book is picking up pace now, and I'm happy we chose this one first!

First thoughts on Bone Sparrow
Having finished chapter 5, I can say that it's not a bad start, but it is very slow. The characters are interesting and I'm excited to find out where the story goes next. Especially with the cliffhanger at the end of Chapter 5 with the '' And then everything changed.'' as the last line. There has also been very little mention of ''Jimmie'' in the first few chapters and I am intrigued by the Bone Sparrow necklace, the death of her Mother, how the drastically different stories are linked and how they will develop. So far... not too bad
