Nevermoor
Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow | Jessica Townsend
Morrigan Crow is cursed. Born on an unlucky day, she is blamed for all local misfortunes, from hailstorms to heart attacks - and, worst of all, the curse means that Morrigan is doomed to die at midnight on Eventide. But as Morrigan awaits her fate, a strange and remarkable man named Jupiter North appears. Chased by black-smoke hounds and shadowy hunters on horseback, he whisks her away into the safety of a secret, magical city called Nevermoor. It's there that Morrigan discovers Jupiter has chosen her to contend for a place in the city's most prestigious organisation: the Wundrous Society. In order to join, she must compete in four difficult and dangerous trials against hundreds of other children, each boasting an extraordinary talent that sets them apart. Except for Morrigan, who doesn't seem to have any special talent at all. To stay in the safety of Nevermoor for good, Morrigan will need to find a way to pass the tests - or she'll have to leave the city to confront her deadly fate.

Fun fact: Nevermoor was (by far!) the most requested title for New Reads November on my podcast. You‘ll find out why on the newest episode! Alex Fahey brings the cool middle school teacher‘s perspective to our convo about Harry Potter comparisons, world building, strong female protagonists, isolation, immigration,and the appeal of power versus the appeal of community. 🎧 Link to listen in bio!

I gave this book to my 10 year old daughter, and she loved it so much that she insisted I read it so we could discuss it. This is an awesome book. It has everything - mystery, suspense, magic, colour. The characters are fabulous, the dialogue is great. It‘s funny and scary and magical. Set in a whole new world dreamed up by the author‘s absolutely out-of-this-world imagination.

This was delightful. It has some of the best touches from (the inevitable comparisons w/) Harry, Wrinkle in Time, Narnia, & Alice: friends, magic, & slightly mad mentors. But manages to stand on its own. The story & heroine have just the right tone for the shade of dark the kids in my life (& who am I kidding, I myself) really love. The character I really loved? Fenestra! When Fenestra, Cheshire, & Crookshanks have poker night, my money‘s on Fen!

[#BookReview] Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend! This was such an amazing middle grade book! This is the first book in a while where I got the same swelling exciting feeling I get when reading Harry Potter and I‘m totally here for it! I loved it so much I immediately went to my library to get the second one!

Controversial maybe but I have to say I vastly prefer the relationships in this series to the ones in Harry Potter.

I grew up with Potter and I still love it but in this series it feels more like Morrigan has a real support system and people who care, which I appreciate.

Very Harry Potterish but I‘m actually not mad about that and am enjoying it. Love my HP but this is different enough that I‘m ok with it. Even if my brain is fighting against me...so it‘s a little slow going.

Nevermoor was so fun, like a trip back into my childhood. The audiobook was extra fun, reading almost like a play. Full of magic and excitement, this story reminded me a bit of Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fablehaven and The Series of Unfortunate Events. I absolutely adored the main character, Morrigan, feeling terrible for her at times, and rooting for her all along the way. I can't wait to read the next installment.

BooknerdsLife This is one of my favorite series!! 🙌🏼💖📚Adore it so much but never listened to its audio book😱 7mo

Nevermoor was fun and easy reading, and I would recommend it.
However... for me it doesn‘t come anywhere even close to Harry Potter like a lot of people are comparing it to. It sometimes felt a bit silly and superficial, and all a bit too easy. Also the characters lacked a bit of depth. Morrigan‘s friends were all quite 2D and I was looking for deeper characters and friendships like Harry, Ron and Hermione‘s relationships and personalities

I am hooked. You guys have to read these books. I hope Jessica Townsend is nearly finished book 3. I read these aloud to my kids. I loved them just as much as they did. Fun, funny, magical and complex. An intricately woven mysterious world of wondrous possibilities. So fresh and innovative. It‘s a 5 stars out of 5 from me. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Trials of Morrigan Crow. Morrigan Crow is cursed. Having been born on Eventide, the unluckiest day for any child to be born, she's blamed for all local misfortunes, from hailstorms to heart attacks--and, worst of all, the curse means that Morrigan is doomed to die at midnight on her eleventh birthday.

If you dont mind reading middle grade books. This book is a fun fun read. I loved it.

Much like the first Harry Potter, easy to read and follow. I‘m hoping the author will grow with her readers as Rowling did.

And the MC, Morrigan...oh my gosh!! I just want to protect her from all the bad things! She is precious. ❤️

This was the most fun middle grade with a morbid main character named Morrigan Crow and her upbeat friend Hawthorne! It gave me Harry Potter feels with magic and unicorns and it just hit all my mushy feeling spots with the ending! I hope this series never ends and I can‘t wait to read the next one!
