Phew!!!

That was a lot of catching up to do!!!

I've been on holiday and that's great because it means that I get more reading done..... the downside is that my reviews pile up!!! Especially as I was out of service for most of the time that I was away.

I did manage to sneak a couple of reviews in but didn't realise quite how many books that I had read!!! Normal service will be resumed with reading and then reviewing straightaway.... it's too tiring typing lots up all in one go!

Review: Snap by Belinda Bauer


I loved this book!! I thought that the storyline was brilliant and I was able to read it at a fast pace which is good as I needed to find out what happened!!

The story focuses on Jack whose mother's car broke down three years ago and she went for help but never came back, his father left them and he was left to look after his two younger sisters alone. 

I really enjoyed the way that the storyline focused on a few different areas and different people and then as your reading you start putting the pieces together and then it clicks.

This really is a fantastic book and I'm so glad that I got the opportunity to read it via Netgalley - I'll definitely be looking out for more titles form Belinda Bauer in the future.


Review: Take me in by Sabine Durrant



I loved this book.... the storyline starts instantly and the more you read the more you realise is happening! I couldn't wait to finish it.

The story is written from two points of view - Marcus and Tessa, it starts on holiday where their son almost drowns on the beach and a stranger saves him..... but that stranger wants to be in their lives from now on. 

Both Marcus and Tessa are hiding their own secrets too and with all the pressure they are under they start to feel like someone is watching them.....but are they being watched?

I loved the way the story unfolded and I must admit I didn't see the ending coming and thought it was brilliant. Definitely a must read.

Review: Rise of the Hearts by Antoine Bonner


Well..... I don't really know where to start with this one!!

The story is based around Nathaniel, who is a loser at everything and a loner as he has no friends. He is given the chance to get everything that he wants but that chance comes with a price.

It's definitely a unique storyline which at times is completely unbelievable and at others really quite brilliant!! It took a long time for the storyline to develop and then it felt like no sooner had we finally found out what it was the book ended - rather abruptly for me. 


Its classified as horror/humour and that is true, I just don't however, think that it's for me.
