On The Chopping Block!

I know that I have already done Darren Shan, but this is one of the last books that I will be reading his works- except for the particular Zom-B novels that are still be published at this exact moment in time. The Zom-B novels will be the last review I will be doing of Darren Shan myself, unless I allow someone else to guest blog and do one of his other sagas. So the sooner that I get this all done the better I guess for you the reader. But just to be clear, I love this writer so much that I have read over 34 books of his- I think that I am obsessed!

Genre: Horror, Dystopian
Publisher: HarperCollins
Year Of Publish: 2010


This is my book of "The Thin Executioner" and is presented for those who don't mind a quest in an unfriendly environment, as well as some confusing names to remember!

It is said that in which through some of his interviews, that he prefers this work compared to his others that he wrote. Although, he may be different now, with the fact of how many new series …

A Mature Debut...

Throughout this week, I had decided that I wanted to try out the 19 year old writer, which has been the talk of literature world, during the last month. Obviously, when I did begin to read it, I did have high expectations- when lots of readers have commented it to be good. This was from Goodreads reviews on how they had thought about it. But also the fact that she was on the breakfast news was one of the main reasons on why i decided to tryout her story. Usually, when it came to unknown writers talking about their books on breakfast TV, i would normally forget it and pass it off to be awful. Although when i saw the cover and the blurb, i was very intrigued, intrigued with the fact that i could relate to these experiences in some cases- it makes sense when you're a teenager!

As it being a debut novel for Alice Oseman, it was very developed compared to some writers on first publishing. It considers issues such as self-h…

"The Demonata" from "The Master Of Horror"

Hello, it's that time again where I become that tough critic. So, you probably already know what book I will be reviewing- after all it's in the title! This time I was reading one of my favourite authors work, the Demonata series.

Genre: Children's Horror
Publisher: HarperCollins

Brief synopsis of the story so far:
Book one: The first book, was named "Lord Loss" this was probably because of the idea of one of the main villains introduced into the series, and is the rival towards the end of the main character of this book- Grubbs. Weird name Grubbs, isn't it? To be honest when I first learned his name, I wasn't too keen, but then I thought it wouldn't be Darren Shan if it wasn't strange.

Book two: Focused on another character called Kernel Fleck, in the book "Demon Thief". Which again the title does have great meaning which will tie into the plot. I'm not going to tell you what actually happened, so I don't ruin it for those who do wa…

The Fabulous Kiera Cass's Books!

Hey!
I'm Kiki and my main objective for this blog is to go through with you, the reader, the books I am reading- as well as giving those tough old criticisms. Of course, if you have already scrutinised this blog quite a lot already, you would already know that this is true. So far I have read 20 books during this year. Yeah, I know not as much as the book tubers which on average they read 100 each year. But I'm not perfect- I'm only human! So who will be my first victim I see? I'm only joking! The first author who will be under my scrutiny will be the delightful and funny Kiera Cass with her entries including The Selection, The Elite and The One. Here we go...

Genre: Dystopian Romance

The Selection!- 3 stars




The Criticisms!

Throughout the whole of this book there was little going on. Probably because of the fact that there is two more books afterwards, and Kiera is trying to prolong the time when the action actually does happen, which is probably so then it isn't rush…
