The Crown by Kiera Cass

It is sad you know? Seeing this all coming to an end. However, if you think about it, it won't be a complete end until i read the 'Happily Ever After' book, which has some small novellas that focus on the series. Although, i do feel that i don't really want to read it just yet as it means that it would have officially ended then for me, after all of these years.

If you had been with me from the very start, my first post was actually a review of the first three books of the series. Everything seems to have changed drastically since then.

If i am being totally honest, when first laying my eyes of the final cover of the selection series, may have been a little bit judgemental. Not only because of the fact that i felt, not only is it very predictable, but it would have been nice to have colours that symbolise both femminity as well as leadership. Which when looking at this at first, it makes me think of 'primary' colours that everyone uses for girls, when they don't know what colours of presents they want to give to a certain person.
However, upon the second glance of it being on my bookshelf with all of the other books from the series, i believe that i may have been a little hasty in my judgement. It actually looks quite nice when you put all the books together, it can be seen to be a very effective colour, even sticking with a certain colour scheme.
To be perfectly honest, i am not overly fond of Evelyn, she's ok, but not a protagonist which i sympathise with. She feels more like a spoilt brat who can't seem to get her own way. I just kind of feel sorry for the person she ended up with in the end, because they seemed more decent than she would ever be. At least we got to see America and Maxon for the final time. Just so sad that we will never read about the perfect couple ever again.
But hey, gives me more of an excuse to once again find the perfect romance novel!

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…
