NOVEMBER TBR!

I have decided this time around, that I'm going to be doing the TBR a bit earlier. If you have already recognised, I didn't do one last time. I'm not going to lie I simply forgot. Not at all good. But now looking back, there was no point for one. There simply wasn't enough. I have been collecting books though. Some you might like, some you might not. But you never know if you find that beautiful hidden gem! Who knows that from this post, you might of found your favourite book of all time?

The few books that I have got lined up for you are: The Iron Trial; Fangirl; Ballet Shoes and The Blood Of Olympus (which i still haven't began reading yet!). So i'm very excited. I have already started Fangirl which seems to be very good. It also seems to be that Cath, the main character has a personality which i can relate to- especially at this moment in time. But i don't want to spoil the plot so far. I've got to be careful if i am to save this for a review later on…

A Female Assassin?!

Throughout the whole of this past week, I have been enclosed in the world of fantasy and of course female assassins! I'm sorry, but it seems to me now that since I have played on the Assassin Creed games, somehow having female lead assassins seem next to nonexistent. Which is okay I guess. But it is always good to broaden those horizons. I'm not against women being lead characters; really I don't care. As long as they have a strong lead and not annoying to read I'm very happy. Extremely happy in fact. But hey, why am I talking on about society? I am and I'm sure you are more interested in how this book worked out.

When having that good old session of reading, I felt a few vibes coming out of it. I'm not sure if some readers have felt the same way but it was like there was a bit of the Hunger Games, The Selection as well as the classic Grimms tale of Cinderella. There was a bit of a love triangle as well as a bit of a…

A Tragic Salesman

I did tell you that you'll be in for this. But I guess you didn't know that it would be so soon. A play. Wonderful. By the Arthur Miller. Don't be sad, even though it may not be contemporary, or even a novel of sorts, doesn't mean that it won't be good. Because it is brilliant. The themes include: betrayal, abandonment, the american dream and so forth.

The author himself, Arthur Miller used to be a salesman himself, so this may have been a connection to why he chose a title and synopsis to this. Also another unusual fact is that at one point he was actually married to Marilyn Monroe, how cool is that? Obviously it probably wasn't for such a long time, as throughout her life, she was married to quite a few men. Anyway, back onto the subject of the book, here comes the "meat" of the review.( I'm not trying to offend vegetarians! So don't take that personally!)

The Unbreakable Code

I found now with reading the second one-off thriller books, that they have very similar qualities. I know, they are done by the exact same author. But just think, why is there always a person in a certain role to take the antagonist side? Well, just a thought anyway. So i hope you have all been sound this last week, because this week i'm taking you back to Dan Brown with his book 'Digital Fortress'. Whoo hoo! All in a days work. Sorry about before, i think i was in a deep idea of thought- i sometimes do that, like most people. But never mind that, you didn't click on this page to hear me babble on about myself- oh no. It's time for the big judgement and whether your in the right mind to try it out afterwards!

Of course this would be the UK version. But would you be able to break the unbreakable code?
So i bet you're wondering what is this all about? Well, to start there is…
