The Ridealong by Michaelbrent Collings

Sorry for such a long wait. I have been quite busy. But I am now delighted to inform you that I am now finished with exams for another year at least! So you know what this means... I can now dedicate much more time once again to my blog. This is my first review in a long line of them for now!
 
I'm trying something a little bit different to what I would normally review for books. But,  this has proven to become a refreshing change, as this book has really made me want to look more into this genre - beware! 

The antagonist is very creepy and sinister, something that I may experience in an nightmare, or even worst, from the corner of your eye or over your shoulder. Or even the pale figure that may jump at you, in the dark of the night.

I found in some parts of the story, it was very difficult to keep track of points which had significant changes. For instance, when there was all of a sudden the characters story changes unexpectedly. This has taken me a long time in which I was able to pick up what actually happened, and where and what they are planning to do next. But I carried on, and soon I was able to make sense of what scenario is playing out.

Although, I guess that I can be a softie, watching both father and daughter together as a team. I like the whole idea of Mel's relationship with her Dad. Maybe it is because I live with my Dad and my sisters myself, that I am really able to relate. This is always a good idea. As I think that you tend to see quite a lot of mother-daughter relationships, which can be quite boring sometimes as well. It is a time for a change!
 
I like the idea of a police officer and his daughter actually being chased. As it is something that you don't really see. It keeps you always on your toes, to see what is about to happen next. In this way, it is a good example of a Thriller. It is a stuff of nightmares, that I guess that everyone would never want to experience in reality.
 

Rating: *** 1/2 stars

 

See you next week when I will be looking at the new pile of books I have hardly touched yet - but soon to be, so that I can then review them for you all!

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…
