Manic mum strikes again!
Review of Just Another Manic Mum-Day - Mink Elliott by frankiecesca

Advantages: It was nice to read a follow on story
Disadvantages: Some things seem to be a bit repeated from the first book

A while back now I read Mink Elliottís first book and really enjoyed it so when I saw that she had written a new book, I decided to buy it and add it to my huge number of books still to be read! I then decided to make a start on it more recently after it ... Read review

Chameleon
Review of Chameleon - J Jackson Bentley by euphie

Advantages: Free book, decent story, kept my attention and made me second guess what I originally thought
Disadvantages: Found it werd that the author himself appears in the book, too descriptive in places

I had downloaded two free eBooks from this author. By sheer luck, I managed to read them in chronological order, although I wasnít even sure until I started the second one that there was a link. About this book While Josh was the narrator in the ... Read review

A mother's look back through time
Review of A Mother's Guide to Cheating - Kate Long by cha97michelle

Advantages: really good characterisation, captured a real life situation well.
Disadvantages: not as funny as advertised, bit slow.

Having read and enjoyed a book previously by Long, The Bad Mother's Handbook, I saw this in the library and decided to take a gamble on reading it. The cover looked fun with a picture of a couple in a bit of conflict, and I felt that a humerous book might ... Read review

I've not ready anything by this author and I can't say it sounds like one I will make the effort to read either! by frankiecesca
Sometimes these blindingly "fabulous" reviews of a book (in this case saying just how funny it all was) can mar your enjoyment like you say, you might otherwise have enjoyed it more. I doubt I'd enjoy this, I don't like reading about cheating husbands (or anyone cheating for that matter). by anonymili

In Flight
Review of In Flight: Up In The Air Book 1 - R. K. Lilley by louisechackett

Advantages: easy to read, great if you like the likes of fifty shades
Disadvantages: some annoying use of language

I have read Fifty Shades of Grey and enjoyed it although when it was recommended to me that if I liked that I should try the Crossfire series they totally blew Fifty Shades out of the water for me. I have read the Crossfire series over and over again and ... Read review

The Lightning Thief is a must-read for all ages.
Review of Percy Jackson And The Lightning Thief - Rick Riordan by nikkavb

Advantages: The world building is strong. The characters are great. The descriptions help you imagine vividly
Disadvantages: The main character overcame his obstacles a little to easily.

I am ashamed that I didn't read this book before. This is a very fast paced and amazing story that you just can't get enough of. Most older people are skeptical to read this because it is known as a middle grade book. But I'm telling you right now to give ... Read review

not her best
Review of Cross Bones - Kathy Reichs by mikeyc123

Advantages: a good read
Disadvantages: not her best novel

This is the latest of the Kathy Reichs books which I have read and it is perhaps not one of the better ones. The book was published in paperback in 2005 so I have had it on my bookshelf for a while before reading it. My copy of the novel is 348 pages in ... Read review

I appreciate that all of you found time to comment on my review. This is, as some of you predicted, one of my first reviews so any kind of feedback is welcome. I didn't want to get too much into book analysis, because I figured it would be a spoiler. I WILL, however, read other book reviews and apply what I have learned to Dan Brown's Inferno and Niccolo Machiavelli's Prince as soon as I finish them. Once again - thank you for your responds, it means a lot, really. by kostur

Biggest decision that will change her life FOREVER!
Review of If I Stay - Gayle Forman by totome

Advantages: The book is very simple and Gayle Forman really connects.
Disadvantages: None

I haven't read any books by Gayle Forman so I have no idea what kind of writer she is nor what genre she is writing about. Then I saw one of the book cover that says it will appeal to twilight fans. Being such a huge fan of twilight, I give it a shot. I b ... Read review

Lost Boys
Review of Like This For Ever - Sharon Bolton by hiker

Advantages: Well-crafted crime-writing that will keep you turning the pages
Disadvantages: Maybe the central character is not solid enough to survive in the force for long

Back in January, Lacey Flint very nearly threw herself off a tower (see Dead Scared the previous novel). Now it's February and she is on extended leave and talking to a counsellor. Whether she is trying to convince the psyche-doctor that she is fit fo ... Read review

Northern Lights. A book with an anti-Christian message?
Review of Northern Lights (His Dark Materials) - Philip Pullman by Kitkat4730

Advantages: A literary feast of flying witches and talking polar bears
Disadvantages: The plot can jump from one place to another

Warning: This review contains some plot spoilers! Northern Lights (or The Golden Compass as the film version is known) is a story that has a not so subtle 'pop' at Christianity. The book was very much in the public eye in 2008 when 'The Golden Compass' h ... Read review

Disadvantages: a bit lacking compared to other books
