Don't Judge A Book By It's Title
Review of A Simple Story - Elizabeth Inchbald by CGholy

Advantages: Witty writing and compelling characters.
Disadvantages: I found it too melodramatic at times.

...Ciao library challenge. I had a look around the classics and found this without any reviews. A Simple Story isn't a very good title in my opinion. Why title your story a simple story when readers can read tale ... Read review

one of the best and most comprehensive books about Spanish Civil
Review of The Battle for Spain: The Spanish Civil War 1936-1939 - Antony Beevor by Eastern

Advantages: one of the best ever sources of information about Spanish Civil War, well written
Disadvantages: none that I can think of

Anthony Beevor is one of my favourite authors dealing with WWII (and in this case Spanish Civil War). He does an excellent research for his books but also each one of them is written in a way that doesn't leave you bored or overwhelmed with dates, names a ... Read review

Reluctant Readers Beware!
Review of Horrid Henry and the Football Fiend - Francesca Simon by jo-1976

Advantages: Engaging for reluctant readers
Disadvantages: Reinforces stereotypes around sibling relationships

Life-Changing! You just can't read it only once
Review of How to Win Friends and Influence People - Dale Carnegie by BenjaminWrites

Advantages: pleasant to read, easy to understand, easy to apply, very close to reality
Disadvantages: packed with good advice - need to read it more than once to take everything in

After hearing about this book again and again, I finally decided to read it. That was one of the best decisions I made this year. To be honest, I don't like the title. It's just bad. The book is not really about "winning friends" or "influencing people" ... Read review

Divergent - a tale of five cities
Review of Divergent - Veronica Roth by JustKatie

Advantages: Easy to get a hold of, a good read for early teens.
Disadvantages: It may be a harder read for younger children.

Where do I start... being a massive fan of dystopian novels, Divergent's mature and futuristic theme appealed to me and shone through anything else I had ever read. This venture into an undeniably exceptional plot, plunged me into, what I will describe as ... Read review
