Review of Summer at Little Beach Street Bakery - Jenny Colgan by jules.34

Advantages: A great read
Disadvantages: Cannot Think of Any

I have read many of Jenny Colgan's books before and they are all easy, light hearted reads. With many of her books, she writes two or three books as part of the same story - such as this book, this book is the follow up to 'The Little Beach Street Bakery ... Read review

Advantages: Raises issues of bullying and suicide in schools, portrays two sides with no real judgement
Disadvantages: Dry and lacklustre with one dimensional and shallow characters, not the best in the genre or theme

Tease is a young adults novel centered around high school angst and a topic close to many peoples hearts; bullying. But Tease does something different to many books and instead of taking the perspective of the bullied, takes the perspective of the bully. ... Read review

An Easy-Reading, Fantasy Adventure - But No Hunger Games
Review of Gregor The Overlander - Scholastic by JamieCharnley

Advantages: Easy Reading, Enjoyable, Adventure, Interesting and Funny Characters
Disadvantages: A Little Predictable, Not a Mature Read

This series is a prime example of my willingness to embrace my 'inner child' when it comes to stocking my bookshelves. I bought this as part of a set of all five 'Underland Chronicles', initially enticed by the fact that they were by the same author as th ... Read review

Quirky and awkward Israeli Story - One Night, Markovitch
Review of One Night, Markovitch - Ayelet Gundar-Goshen by cr01

Advantages: A very good read with some serious bits in it
Disadvantages: None for me

The Israel question is one that vexes me. I don’t think I could be described as anti-Jewish given that I’ve been married to someone for 20 years who had great aunts die in Germany’s concentration camps for their faith and heritage, but on the other hand, ... Read review

Love Angel's Blood!
Review of Angels' Blood - Nalini Singh by saphiamehmood

Advantages: Amazing world building, addicting characters and a kick ass heroine!
Disadvantages: Disliked nothing about this book!

Okay so I was recommended this book by goodreads, and at first I was hesitant at reading this as I've never read a book about Angel's before. But I've read books from Nalini Singh before and loved them so I thought why not? I am so glad that I did! This i ... Read review

The Problem With Magpie Rhymes...
Review of Carpe Jugulum - Terry Pratchett by hiker

Advantages: Witches, vampires
Disadvantages: None

The problem with magpie rhymes is that they are all wrong, for the simple reason that none of them are the ones that the Magpies themselves know. The magpies in this case are not always birds. If you've been keeping up with my re-reading of the whole D ... Read review
