#6Degrees: We Were Liars to...

The Zoella Book Club #6degrees special continues!

We Were Liars is written by E Lockhart, a favourite author of my friend Julianne (who's one of my favourite BookTubers - check out her brilliant YouTube channel) Like me, Julianne is also a massive fan of Candy Harper's stunning Faith series.

The Faith series is an incredibly funny read with one of my favourite lead characters of recent years. Another wonderful main character who actually reminds me of a younger (admittedly less confident) Faith is Emily Sparkes from the superb Ruth Fitzgerald series.

Emily Sparkes is one of my two favourite ever MG contemporary series. The other is Susie Day's wonderful Pea's Book quartet and spin-off Secrets books - I can't wait to pick up my copy of The Secrets of Billie Bright later today!

It's still fairly rare to see covers with BAME main characters, sadly, so Lisa Horton's gorgeous illustration for the Billie Bright cover is especially awesome! Another stunning cover featuring a BAME MC is Laura Bird and Bella Otak's outstanding one for Catherine Johnson's The Curious Tale of the Lady Caraboo.

Laura Bird is one of my favourite cover designers and another incredible one of hers is The Last Leaves Falling by Fox Benwell (writing as Sarah Benwell.)
