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 I was a school kid. Feeling as though there is so much certainty in the world. Where so many things were possible - well hopefully they still are.

But, what I am trying to say, is that it reminded me of the time when stories became my passion. Why, in some ways, they are much better than in real life.

This truly, is what makes both the stories as well as Fry himself so unique.


I believe that I cannot truly imply the honesty and significance that this book has. It simply has to be read to understand, or in fact, believe.

Even if you do not have much of a passion for mythology or that of books, I truly believe this can be a 'starter pack' to transform your world and allow for you to enter into the true readers sphere of life.

Here We Are Now by Jasmine Warga

When I look at 'Here we are now' I think of a fair few things. First of all, there is not many father/daughter relationship type YA books on the market at the moment. Secondly, I thought that it would be interesting to see how such a relationship between father and daughter, with the added stress of the Dad being famous adds to the hype of this type of story.

However, when delving into the book itself, it felt as though it was more about the relationship between her father and mother, rather than the main protagonist herself. In fact, it seemed as though the main character was pushed to the side so much, due to the flashbacks, that it felt as though she was a weak supporting character. To this day, it feels as though I haven't really understood what Taliah (the supposed main character) was all about and her mind processes, that we usually see with other beloved characters.

Throughout the book I had found that for the plot itself, I felt as though it was far too short for a…

Miranda’s Rights (Paranormal Detectives Book Two) by Lily Luchesi


The dead don’t always rest easy... Retired detective Danny Mancini is haunted by nightmares after he found out that paranormal creatures exist. All he wants is to forget them…especially a certain half-vampire. When cursed werewolves show up trying to kill him, he is forced to go back to the Paranormal Investigative Division for help against a powerful old enemy. What he was not expecting was a dead ex showing back up after twenty-six years.
My own view of the book itself is refreshing. Not only is it a sequel book to the story, Stake-out, but also that by the look of the cover this is definitely…
