Review of The Beet Fields - Gary Paulsen by LiveMusicLoverLyn

The bullets which led to war
Review of The Trigger: The Hunt for Gavrilo Princip - the Assassin who Brought the World to War - Tim Butcher by JOHNV

Advantages: Very interesting journey through history in the 'then and now' manner
Disadvantages: A little too much about the author in places

The trigger of the title is that which featured in perhaps the most far-reaching assassination in history – that of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the imperial throne of Austria-Hungary, and his morganatic (unequal in rank) wife, Sophie Chotek. On the ... Read review

You did a love triangle? Lord save me.
Review of Fractured - Sarah Fine by Secre

Advantages: The third book is meant to be better...
Disadvantages: ...this is a load of utter tripe

I don’t usually write reviews on sequels, in fact I usually steer well clear of them out of fear of giving a spoiler to a previous book in the series whilst reviewing something really obvious in that book. Sequels make me nervous. In this case however, a ... Read review

Well reviewed, but she - and anyone else who thinks clutter is bad - should read A Perfect Mess by Abrahamson and Freedman, which makes a persuasive counter-argument. by torr

A gripping read from cover to cover
Review of Church Of Lies - Flora Jessop by Nymphypig

Advantages: Absolutely gripping and very educational
Disadvantages: A difficult read at times

"My name is Flora Jessop. I've been called apostate, vigilante, and crazy bitch, and maybe I am. But some people call me a hero, and I'd like to think they're right too. If I am a hero, maybe it's because every time I can play a part in saving a child or ... Read review

Review of How To Be Both - Ali Smith by laurahartleyy

Advantages: Interesting style, unique
Disadvantages: Very boring in places, requires a lot of effort to read

There are two editions of How To Be Both: one with George's part first, and the other with Francesco del Cosso's part first. I was fortunate enough to have George's part first, and thank god I did. I'm not 100% sure I would have even continued reading thi ... Read review

Sickly Sweet Romance in Suicide City
Review of Sanctum - Sarah Fine by Secre

Advantages: The premise is good and writing style enjoyable
Disadvantages: The romance is gushing and ridiculous and mars what could have been superb

On my first day of Warwick High School, if you’d have told me I’d choose to go to hell for any of the students, let alone Warwick’s queen bee, I would have laughed. Or maybe I would have stabbed you with a ballpoint pen (it was kind of a rough day). ... Read review

Advantages: Variety in detail. Nice pictures. Good quality paper
Disadvantages: The "inspirational quotes"

I can't remember a time when I haven't enjoyed colouring in, there's just something about it that I find both calming and relaxing. There has never been a time when at least one page in my children's colouring books has found it's way in to my hands to be ... Read review
