Into the Lion's Mouth by Nancy McConnell - Spotlight and Blog Tour

Tuesday, April 30, 2024

Hello and welcome to my blog for my stop on the tour for Into the Lion's Mouth by Nancy McConnell! It's a pleasure to welcome you here - please do have a click around and read some of my other reviews. 

I'm sorry that I didn't get round to reading this book before today. Life got away from me and I just wasn't able to get to it. So instead I'm doing a spotlight for this book which I hope you like and which I hope shows the book off! I am still hopeful I'll read it soon, in which case I'll review it here of course. 

This was one of the BBNYA books this year. If you don't know what that is, it's a competition where book bloggers read and rate books written by independent authors. There are fifteen finalists and one overall winner. I have been a panellist before but didn't sign up this year as I was just too busy. But it is a brilliant initiative and I would urge you to get involved if you're interested! 

BBNYA is a yearly competition where book bloggers from all over the world read and score books written by indie authors, ending with 15 finalists and one overall winner.

If you want some more information about BBNYA, check out the BBNYA Website or take a peek over on Twitter @BBNYA_Official. BBNYA is brought to you in association with the @Foliosociety (if you love beautiful books, you NEED to check out their website!) and the book blogger support group @The_WriteReads.

This book is a historical middle grade book. I really liked the blurb which is why I signed up, especially as it's set in Venice which I love. Please have a look at the information below, and please do check out some of the other stops on this tour!


Venice is sinking, so they say.

And so are Nico's chances to prosper in the most glorious city in the world. Nurse Francesca is threatening to send him to a farm to pick olives, he has failed at two apprenticeships, and one of the most powerful men in Venice would like to sink Nico's lifeless body into the darkest canal. Orphans have very few options and Nico might be forced to choose the one he most wishes to avoid, leaving Venice behind forever.

Author Bio

Nancy McConnell grew up in a little family, in a small town on the outskirts of a bigger city. Besides her family, the two things she loved most in the world were: reading and playing pretend. When she grew up, reading was allowed but playing pretend was sometimes frowned upon. Since that was the case, she decided to write books so that the stories running around in her head would still live. In between writing stories, marrying her college sweetheart, and moving to a new country, she had her own little family and settled in another small town on the way outskirts of a much bigger city. Some things never change. When not writing, Nancy can be found puttering in her garden, taking photos or baking.
