Review of Lovestruck - Julia Llewellyn by jules.34

Advantages: A Great Read
Disadvantages: Cannot think of any

I had never read any of Julia Llewellyn books before but this one caught my eye in my local library so thought I would give it a read. The story, I thought, got off to a bit of a slow start. It is based on Rosie and Jake, a married couple with two child ... Read review

Potty Over This Toilet Trained Princess!
Review of Little Princess - I Want My Potty - Tony Ross by Chippytarka

Advantages: Well known TV series, lovely relatable story, very funny, great illustrations, perfect length
Disadvantages: Pages not numbered but no real negatives

My children have a very good and quite set daily routine. We try to get any homework, reading or spelling completed before they leave for school in the morning. They go on their tablets as a reward over the weekend and they visit the library during the ho ... Read review

Teeny Queenie Abdicate Please!
Review of Teeny Weeny Queenie - Claire Freedman by Chippytarka

Advantages: Good sized book, great illustrations, nice message within the story
Disadvantages: Story wasn't interesting, a little too long,

After spending lots of money buying my son brand spanking new books as a toddler, I had to put book buying on hold. Not so much because of the cost, as books if you look properly can be bought at reasonable if not cheap prices depending on where you buy ... Read review

Clay, boy. Not fit to receive so golden a sacrifice.
Review of The Warrior's Apprentice - Lois McMaster Bujold by Secre

Advantages: Plot, development, characters; a wonderful novel
Disadvantages: A pest to get hold of a hard copy now although not impossible

Miles Vorkosigan is the son of the famous Count Aral Vorkosigan, the Former Regent of Barrayar, Prime Minister of Barrayar, Admiral and Butcher of Komarr. It is quite a name, and quite a man for that matter, to live up to. Even more so when you have been ... Read review

Dangerously Closer (& Sexier!) Than You Think
Review of Closer Than You Think - Karen Rose by gothic_moon

Advantages: Good old detective work, vivid scenes, fluid writing style that's engaging to read
Disadvantages: Soft porn at times

I came across this in the library recently and, having read Rose novels before, was quite looking forward to it. It didn’t take long before I remembered her style (and love of love & romance amidst crime) so whilst it wasn’t a fantastic read, it was none ... Read review

Review of Fly Away Home - Jennifer Weiner by xd-o-n-z-x

Advantages: Plot, character
Disadvantages: nothing majors

I recently found this book in a charity shop, and I have to say that it was the cover that caught my attention (I know, I know, you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover, but I couldn’t help it this time!). The book in question is called ‘Fly Away Home’ an ... Read review

Review of Take Mum Out - Fiona Gibson by jules.34

Advantages: A Great Read
Disadvantages: Cannot think of Any

I have read some of Fiona Gibson's books before and this one, like the others, was very well written. One of the books I previously read by this author - 'Lucky Girl' - I found quite a heavy read, but in general she usually writes quite light hearted, ea ... Read review

Advantages: An entertaining book to read and great storyline.
Disadvantages: None.

About the book This is the second in series of books by author David Clement-Davis. "Fire Bringer", the novel published previously to "The Sight" doesn't have a direct connection to the story of The Sight, however, Clement-Davis establishes the fact ... Read review

Advantages: gripping, humorous, brilliantly written, a page turner
Disadvantages: cliffhanger ending left me wanting more!

I love a good book, but often in life I don’t have as much time to read as I’d like. However, when I got a £10 amazon voucher, the first thing that sprung to mind was definitely to get a new novel to dig into! I often stick to the same kind of genre, or I ... Read review

Innocence Hidden Underneath The City
Review of Innocence - Dean Koontz by gothic_moon

Advantages: Intriguing premise that keeps you guessing, atmospheric, depth of characters
Disadvantages: A bit 'out there', a tad repetitive/slow at times

As a fan of Dean Koontz, I was quite looking forward to giving this a read when I came across it in the library a couple of weeks ago. He can be a little ‘out there’ with his writing, though he maintains a distinct sense of grounded realism that makes hi ... Read review
