Library Lamentation
Review of Library services by 1st2thebar

Advantages: Libraries are vital for modernity to continue
Disadvantages: Austere measures are cultivating a third world mindset

Like a butterfly, I flutter from digital word to the printed word without heed in a quest to satisfy my curious antenna. However, if there was a such hub to allow the curious mind space to absorb information, make references, find oneself, being enthralle ... Read review

My problem is: given that I no longer use my local library (I get given books free to review) how I can support it. I'm not being hypocritical here - I genuinely believe in the "library" concept, but I no longer (or perhaps that should read 'not right now') need it. by hiker

This Killer Is Anything But A Sweetheart
Review of Sweetheart - Chelsea Cain by gothic_moon

Advantages: Original & captivating premise, fab writing style, felt credible, brilliantly absorbing characters
Disadvantages: None for me

Having read Cain novels before featuring a certain character, I was geekily excited when I came across this one in the library recently. Thankfully, it didn’t disappoint. Gripping, involving and pervasive, this was an excellent read that I would happily r ... Read review

Review of Hidden - Casey Hill by gothic_moon

Advantages: Scenes & events easy to visualise, reasonably gripping premise
Disadvantages: Fell short on some aspects (predictability, empathy, believability etc) for it to be better

I came across this in the library recently and whilst I wasn’t familiar with the author the cover caught my attention. It may not have been the most credible of novels, but it was an engaging read that I found enjoyable nonetheless. Hidden falls within ...

Advantages: A great short read
Disadvantages: Not the same depth as a long read
