Hello all! Today I’m reporting back on my first read for the 2018 Jacqueline Wilson project, where I’m going to be picking up one Jacqueline Wilson book that I’ve never read every month for the whole of this year. For January I decided to reread Hetty Feather (yes I know, cheating a little), as I’ve never read the rest of the series and thought that I’d better start with the first book.
.
This story follows a young girl called Hetty, who was left at the foundling hospital in London as a baby. This first book starts with Hetty growing up at her foster home, getting up to adventures and mischief until she’s old enough to return to the hospital which, predictably, she does not like one bit.
.
I really enjoyed reading this book. The historical element worked so well that I’m not surprised the author has written so many more books in a similar setting. I also really liked Hetty as a main character, she’s fiery but smart and creative, and gave off some serious Tracy Beaker vibes which I found really nostalgic as an older reader. She’s full of personality and mischief and that made this story, which is really quite sad in places, very amusing and a lot of fun. I did think that the ending was a little bit of a cliche, but it did wrap the story up nicely and left me eager to continue the series later this year. I gave this read a solid 3.75/5 ⭐️ s!.
.
For February I’m going to be choosing a contemporary read to get stuck into, although I haven’t picked out which one yet. I’ll let you know what I go for very soon 😄. All of my updates for this project can be found at #JWproject here on Instagram and on twitter - feel free to read along if you would like!.
.
Have any of you guys read Hetty Feather? And if not, what’s your favourite Jacqueline Wilson book?.

Fancy Dress Farmyard has been read so much that it's falling apart!
It features bold illustrations, farmyard animals dressed in costumes, and a rhyming narration that Little A knows by heart!

| You choose |
When a book captures my son’s imagination it really is magical to see and You Choose was by the far the best book we got for Christmas, definitely one for the whole family to enjoy. Fletcher usually chooses to visit space in a rocket wearing his suit of armour. I choose to go the beach, stay in a mansion with a pool, and my favourite activity is to lie on my sun lounger with book in hand ♡. What would you choose?

I was an avid Jacqueline Wilson reader when I was a child. On reflection, she touched on topics that were seldom seen in children's novels. And following a recent discussion with friends we realised that some of her books were actually a little bleak. This was most likely lost on my youthful and innocent brain. So now, at the ripe old age of 29 years, I'm going to read them again. I have a feeling the experience as a slightly broken adult will differ somewhat. But I'm really looking forward to it. Nick Sharratt's illustrations still make me smile and I'm Starting with The Suitcase Kid (whilst wearing my Strong Girls Club t-shirt of course) #books #nostalgia #youth #nicksharratt #illustration #jacquelinewilson #read #childhood #adulthood #perspective #lifelessons #jacquelinewilsonbooks #thesuitcasekid #onlythebeginning #mentalhealth #stronggirlsclub

今日は朝からガッカリとイライラとが交互に襲ってきて15時にとどめ刺されてもーなんなの人間としてどーなのそれ!?って感じだったが、息子は今日も楽しく読書していた。お尻シリーズのファミリー。少し薄めであっという間に読んでいた。老いらくの恋、ステキ💕 それにしてもあいつなんなの??サイコパス?? 夫が下戸じゃなければ2人でやけ酒だわ。マジないわ。 #whatireadtoday #jeremystrong #nicksharratt #chapterbookforkids #chapterbooks #bookforkids #judes #2ndgrader #boy

My boy's bedtime reads this evening. I love seeing him choose his books each night, rifling through his bookshelves. He actually has three different sets of bookshelves in his room, now that I think of it, a @tidy_books case for picture books, shelves for his Star Wars, Marvel, DC and non-fiction books and then shelves attached to his bed for all of his chapter books. And I was worried that I wasn't encouraging him enough with his books! He loves them, so all's well, but he announced tonight that he wants to give away his 'baby books' so that's bye to Peepo - it's made me sad! I think I'll just keep it in case he wants to read it again one day... 😉

足を怪我した男の子のお話。昨年、隣のクラスの先生がアキレス腱を断裂して、痛々しい姿で教壇に立っていたので、かなりリアルに想像できたみたい。 #whatireadtoday #jeremystrong #nicksharratt #brokenleg #chapterbookforkids #2ndgrader #boy
So this year I’ve decided to revisit my all time favourite author, Jacqueline Wilson, by reading one of her new books every month. And when I say new, I mean something that was published after I became a teenager and ‘grew out’ of reading her books.
.
My January pick is Hetty Feather, Wilson’s first historical novel and also the first in a successful four part series. I’m cheating already because this book is actually a reread for me, but I really want to check out the others in the series so figured that it would be a good idea to read this one first. Also, I can remember basically nothing about it! The story is set in the late 1800s, and follows a fiery young girl called Hetty, who was left at a foundling hospital as a baby. This first story is about Hetty growing up with her brothers at her foster home, getting up to adventures and mischief until she’s old enough to return to the hospital. .
.
I’m so excited for this project! Do feel free to join in if you would like; I will be announcing and chatting about all of my reads here and on my twitter (link in my bio) using the hashtag #JWproject if any of you are interested in following along. Have any of you guys read Hetty Feather? Are any of you avid Jacqueline Wilson fans like me? I’d love to know your thoughts!.
