Escape – Book Review

“To escape, you first have to set yourself free.” A book with intriguing cover art? Yep. Solid characters we grow to know and love? Yep. A plot that leaves you emotionally wrecked? Yep! I really enjoyed reading this one – if you’re after a bit of a thriller combined with romantic suspense, then Escape is…

The Water Crown – Book Review

“You can’t look into the desert too long because the heat will burn your eyes, but it’s important to know what one is up against.” I’m so happy to be able to share my review of this novel before its release date! The combination of genres and gripping story line managed to capture me right…

ALiCE – Book Review

“It was toying with him, keeping him alive for sport the same way that cats played with injured mice.” Ahh, finally! A book filled with horror, creepy children and a chilling atmosphere all the way through – bliss! I love a good scary book and it’s rare that I get to read them. (Horror authors,…

The Lost Castle – Book Review

“So your family history is full of mystifying castles, Samurai warriors and priceless treasure! Are you serious?” I always love to read something different. When I review a book, I’m always hoping for a unique plot or a bunch of characters unlike any other. This is especially true with children’s books! My next children’s book…

King Of Shadows – Book Review

“He’s a warlock, a madman. But he’s also the only thing keeping me alive.” After giving the first book in this series, King Of Flames, a shining 5 star review a few months back, I think it’s safe to say that I was pretty goddamn excited to be reaching for book two! I was in…

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…

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…

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…
