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 in the future.

I'm looking forward to the end of The Blood of Olympus. I have been trying really hard not to look at spoilers on the internet. It's quite sad actually, especially when i received it in the post the day it was published. I guess i don't want to rush it. Maybe it is the fact of which i don't want the Percy Jackson world to end, which i already understand Riordan has already brought out the concept of there being 'Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods' as well as the next book which hasn't yet been published 'Percy Jackson and the Greek Heroes'. But it won't be the same. I heard that it is not really about Percy but he is more like the narrator, which seems quite depressing to me. Although it may actually be very good. So if you have read it make sure you tell me in the comments, so then if it is fantastic i would actually consider buying it. But i would also need to know on whether the American or the UK version is much better than the other. Tell me, i will be listening!

Ballet Shoes is one that i had received from my Grandparents, as my Nan absolutely loves the book and everytime i talk about books she brings up the subject. So when she found it on the carboot she thought that i would like to read it. I find that fine, as there is never enough books to fill up in my spare time. The more the better. On the other hand, The Iron Trial is something i found in ASDA. For a few times going in there, i always seem to look at the book section and twice it has caught my eye. To be honest i have read a little bit of it and seems to be for the younger audience- meaning children. I don't mind about that as well, Percy is a childrens book but that hasn't stopped me. So we'll have to wait and see on whether it has been a good buy. Even if it doesn't it has a nice place on my bookshelf as it is a beautiful illustrated book cover.

I haven't got any further with the Dan Brown books, although i have began on 'Angels and Demons' which seems quite good so far. But i won't tell you anymore until nearer the time.

Happy Halloween!

P.s. Sorry there wasn't any ghoulish titles!

Midsummer's Bottom by Darren Dash

Hello everyone. This week I am going to be reviewing a book which is a little bit more light-hearted and hilarious to the point that chaos ensues. It is based on the work of William Shakespeare, to the point that the original characters such as Puck, Oberon and Titania have roles, but there are new characters which act out the story, but in the way that the originals believe to be the best. However, these new characters do not know anything about this, which makes the twists and turns of chaos to become quite entertaining.

First of all, for those who know of Darren Dash's other pseudonym which deals with children's books should not read this book. The content is for the mature reader, it is clearly shown how it has been written.

I think that the best part about this book is that when starting to read it, having no previous knowledge about the certain Shakespeare's play of A Midsummer Night's Dream, I thought that I would be put off the concept. However, after a few of…

The Gods have spoken! - Mythos by Stephen Fry

I love mythology. That is a fact that many people know in my life. So when I found out that the brilliant mind of Stephen Fry was going to write a book on Greek mythology, I couldn't have been more ecstatic. In three words: perfect bedtime stories.

Did it excel my expectations?

Well, I guess that you could say yeah.

I understand that some people did not like the way that it was written in such simple 'Fry way'. But I found that much more funny.

You see, I find that there is nothing better than drama. In fact, as social beings we all have a certain feel about it. It is something that breathes life within all of us.

You see, you can feel the absolute significance of why a book like this should be read. It brings us back to a time where stories of such marvellous wonders exist. That there is hope out there. That there is a reason why certain events happen as they do.

A reason. That is all we need to keep going on.

So, as I began reading Mythos, it took me back to a time when …

Conditional Love by Cathy Bramley

So hi. Sorry for such a huge period of time where i was absent. There are several reasons as to why that is, personal as well as other big points. Anyway, i'm back and hopefully that means that i will be back for a while, before i may be noticeably absent once again.

Today i have a nice book to come back to this blog. It is called 'Conditional Love' and written by an author from Nottinghamshire called Cathy Bramley.

As you can see the awful picture that i took of this book doesn't really show the homely beauty of the book cover in person. The illustration really identifies what the story is all about - a woman with the aim of getting her dream home. It really shows this with the fact that there is a light on downstairs in the house, a warm hearth.

So because of the fact that somehow i have "connections" with this author, she was very kind in sending various amount of goodies back last year. This included this book, as a signed copy, as well as other books i s…
