The Gräzland Tales – Book Review

“Long live the Prince.” Here we go again! Today’s book review (and my longest book review of all time) is all about The Gräzland Tales by Trevor Van Winkle. This review will be slightly different to the reviews I’ve written previously, mainly because The Gräzland Tales is FOUR books long! I’ll be reviewing each section…

No Fish For Charles – Book Review

“You’re not a fish!” I said to the snake. “Of course I’m not, for goodness sake!” I’m so happy to be restarting my children’s book reviews! I’ve recently revisited my own children’s book, Little Caroline and my excitement for getting it published is overwhelming. I’ve found the perfect illustrator and now all that is left…

First Of Their Kind – Book Review

“Maybe you’ll solve humanity’s greatest secrets. Maybe you’ll guide us to the stars and beyond. Maybe you’ll simply be our friend. You are the start of something we can’t begin to understand.” I’ve been waiting FOREVER for a book like this to crop up. I love anything science-y or AI based, and First Of Their…

How Important Are Book Reviews For Kids? Request Yours!

Book reviews for kids can help narrow down the humongous reading pile. Picture this – You’re a book lover. Always have been. Always will be.

Winterhued – Book Review

“The tremor faded and passed, it was but a whisper, an echo of something far away. Yet, with it came a reel of decay, and the carrion stench of torn flesh.” My latest read was something way out of my comfort zone. That’s one of the best things about our book club – we can…

CampNaNo Failed. Now What?

“Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.” As you will know, April 1st is the day where you trick people into believing something that isn’t true. I did something similar this year. I told everyone that this day marked the start of my Camp NaNoWriMo challenge! A lot of writers…

This Shall Be A House Of Peace – Book Review

“In the end, men are just men, neither good nor bad.” This Shall Be A House Of Peace by Phil Halton explores the aftermath of the collapse of Afghanistan’s soviet backed government. The Mullah, a teacher in an Afghan village, leads a group of students who have been left behind from the civil war. The…

King Of Flames – Book Review

“Before she could even muster a scream, it overtook her. And the world was gone.” Book review number eight is here! I have to say straight away that this book was probably one of my favourites so far for the club. (Definitely up there with The Haunting Of Hattie Hastings by Audrey Davis, which, as…

Death’s Kiss – Book Review

“Life is valuable. Death is a necessity.” I’m now on book review number seven for my book club, Books Of All Shades and, as each book is completed, my level of inspiration is through the roof. Each book has been so different, each story so unique in its own way. It’s so great to see…
