Bookends - Jane Green
Review of Bookends - Jane Green by JennyMck

Advantages: Very enjoyable, great characters
Disadvantages: Very slow start

Welcome to Ciao, this is a really good start! Think about what you’d want to know before making a purchasing decision and write it out for others; a brief plot summary, writing style, characters, themes, etc can all be covered. Why did you love it or hate it. Aim for 500 words as your base minimum word count. Lower than that and you will be scraping H's where the money here is in the VH's and above.

Good plot but lacks character development and the element of time
Review of Poison Study - Maria V. Snyder by Elna642

Advantages: Good plot
Disadvantages: Little character development, irrelevant love story, can't feel time passing

I decided to read this series because this book was voted in for being one of the books of the month in a YA group I’m part of on Goodreads. So the title of this book becomes quite obviously relevant when Yelena, who is destined for the noose, is given t ... Read review

Restless- A gasp out loud spy thriller.
Review of Restless - William Boyd by splishsplash

Advantages: A story line that will keep you up late reading it.
Disadvantages: Some may find the two stories running in tandem a little annoying.

Spy thrillers are not normally my first choice for reading but I was drawn to this one as the cover had "Winner of the Costa Novel Award 2006" on the cover so I knew I would be in for a good read, better than many books that I have picked up from our loc ... Read review
