Malory Towers Series Review #EnidBlyton #Children’sBooks #SchoolStories

Last week I finally finished my revisit of Enid Blyton's Malory Towers books. (I say finally because while I started my revisits last year, and finished the first five books, because of various things, I only got to the final book this year). While I have reviewed each of the books individually as I read…

Malory Towers Challenge: Last Term at Malory Towers by #EnidBlyton

The final Malory Towers book, and thus the final part of my revisit of these books, which I ended up picking up many months after I’d read book 5. In this one Darrell and Sally, and the rest of their form are returning to Malory Towers for their last term. Darrell and Sally and also…

Children’s Book (?) of the Month: Enid Blyton’s School Stories

This month I didn't read any children's books except for In the Fifth at Malory Towers which I've reviewed already (here). So for my children's book of the month this time, I thought I'd do a more general post about Enid Blyton's school stories. If you've been following this blog, you know of course that…

Malory Towers Challenge: In the Fifth at Malory Towers by Enid Blyton

It's been a few months since I last read a book in this series though I've been thinking about it for sometime now. I read and reviewed book 4 last November (here), where Darrell's sister Felicity, attends Malory Towers for the very first time. In book 5, Darrell and Felicity return to Malory Towers, where…

Malory Towers Challenge: Upper Fourth at Malory Towers

Book #4 for my Malory Towers challenge. I would like to clarify that for this ‘challenge’ I’m only reading the original six books written by Enid Blyton herself. There are six further books by Pamela Cox which explore more of Felicity’s adventures. Read a little about them on the World of Blyton Blog here.  …

Malory Towers Challenge: Third Year at Malory Towers

Book #3 for my Malory Towers Challenge, or rather of me reading through the Malory Towers books chronologically. Although this one is titled ‘third year’, as always, it deals with one term at the school. The story opens as usual with Darrell preparing to return to Malory Towers, where her sister Felicity will be joining…

Malory Towers Challenge: First Term at Malory Towers

So a couple of months ago I wrapped up my Five Findouters Challenge which was all about reading the Findouters books by Enid Blyton (15 in the series) chronologically (my review of that challenge is here), and then decided to pick up next, this series of school stories by Blyton which I don’t know as…

Five Findouters: Series and Challenge Review and Plans for My Next Enid Blyton Challenge

Last October onwards, I began reading the Five Findouters books by Enid Blyton, in chronological order for the first time. This was one of my favourite series as a child, and Blyton among my favourite authors (she still is), but while I had read all of the books (some many times over), I’d never read…
