There's an element of magic about the book which I loved and I thought it was beautifully written... North of Nowhere is the perfect book to read on a stormy night, curled up indoors with the fire crackling. I was gripped by Mia's story and the mystery of Luffsands. This was a truly magical and captivating read which I will definitely be recommending to everyone I know. * A Dream of Books Blog *
