The Heir by Kiera Cass

Sorry for the whole, leaving it for a month sort of thing. I've had a lot happening this past month, some more life-changing compared to some. So writing on this blog was put on a back burner for a while. This is also probably going to become a little bit of a thing though, now having so much more to cope with in my own life. Therefore i have been debating as to whether i should only post every fortnight. Because then not only will i be a bit more reliable but also, on some occassions there may be a bit more content compared to the weekly posts. I may even be able to talk about more than one book - if you are really lucky!

Anyway, let's get onto the review that you have been waiting patiently for!

This time i have been going back to my high piled TBR list and i picked a favourite as to which i have been wanting to read, since it was first published in May.

I love the cover itself. It is so individual to the protagonist of the story. Especially when this is the second protagonist in the Selection series. It shows Eadlyn's unique character, compared to her mother's, America, whose story was covered within the first three books. I also love the blend of colours that have been used, with the grey, blue and purple. It really sets off the difference between the first three books compared to now. Also, with having the model on the cover hold a tiara, it shows the progession as to what type of lives the main family in the story has.

My overall fondness for Eadlyn took a while. The fact that she was not willing to co-operate at all with the selection, got me a little up tight. Especially, as she has the spirit like her mother from the first book. But we all love the selection and what types of romance may come out of it. So as she would not co-operate in this event, the plot dragged along for quite a while. But it only felt like once things were really turning pear-shaped she finally started to understand as to what the selection is all about. Although, it does seem like she is a bit selfish to take that long to put her duty before her dignity first.

The suitors that entered into the selection all seemed to have very interesting personalities. When i say this, it means that many of the suitors were very strong. So if i was in the position of chosing like her, i would never know who to chose. Because i believe they all had their admirable qualities in their own special ways. Hopefully things will start to narrow down in the final and fifth book of the series!

Overall Rating: *** and 3/4

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…
