Ex-FBI Agent Brigid Quinn thinks she has a second chance at life. After too many years spent in the company of evil, she’s quit the Feds and is working out what normal is meant to feel like.

I truly enjoyed this book (REALLY ENJOYED), I was kindly sent this book for review purchases and I have to admit, it’s not the normal book I would reach for but I’m so glad I did.

About the book:

What was supposed to be fun soon turns into something intense when the make discoveries about their future selves and end up on other “detours”.

ARC BOOK REVIEW; Saint Death

BookPolar REVIEWS

Saint Death by Marcus Sedgwick
Published October 6th 2016 by Orion Children’s Books

Saint Death follows Arturo, a young man living in a shack on the border between US and Mexico. Living hand to mouth in an impoverished city, the story follows Arturo as he struggles to save himself and childhood friend from a dangerous situation and a poverty-stricken life.

From the moment I began reading I could tell this book was something special. Sedgwick describes the harsh, grim day-to-day life that poor Arturo battles through. The seamless writing flows between Spanish and English and lends its self perSAINTDEATHfectly to the setting.

I could tell there was more to the book than the simple, verging on non-existent story line, there was definitely a meaningful deeper message to the story, but unfortunately it was lost on me. I do love exploring books outside my usual choice of dystopian YA, but this…

BLOG TOUR AND REVIEW: SIX STORIES By Matt Wesolowski

IT'S BOOK TALK

I’m so excited to welcome everyone to my stop on the blog tour for Matt Wesolowski’s SixStories which is published by the wonderful Orenda Books

SIX STORIES BF AW.indd

The Blurb

One death. Six stories. Which one is true?

1997. Scarclaw Fell. The body of teenager Tom Jeffries is found at an outward bound centre. Verdict? Misadventure. But not everyone is convinced. And the truth of what happened in the beautiful but eerie fell is locked in the memories of the tight-knit group of friends who embarked on that fateful trip, and the flimsy testimony of those living nearby.

2017. Enter elusive investigative journalist Scott King, whose podcast examinations of complicated cases have rivalled the success of Serial, with his concealed identity making him a cult internet figure. In a series of six interviews, King attempts to work out how the dynamics of a group of idle teenagers conspired with the sinister legends surrounding…

Review of Crash Burn Sting by Alora Kate

Reader with a Plan

Happy hump day word nerds!! I hope the first half of your week has gone well! I know mine has!! I love Alora Kate’s books so whenever a chance comes along to read her books I jump all on it! This book is, of course, no exception so without further ado…

Heaven. Hell.
Good. Evil.
What do you believe in?
Who do you believe in?
The best day of my sad, pathetic life was the day I died.
I’m not a good person.
I want the name Rawson Lorde and all that goes with it to be forgotten on Earth. I deserve to rot in hell and reflect on my own choices for the rest of eternity.
I don’t deserve a happily ever after.
I don’t deserve to be in Heaven.
I don’t deserve a second chance at happiness.
So, imagine my surprise when I find God and the Devil…

The wild Air by Rebecca Mascull

About the Book

In Edwardian England, aeroplanes are a new, magical invention, while female pilots are rare indeed.

When shy Della Dobbs meets her mother’s aunt, her life changes forever. Great Auntie Betty has come home from Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, across whose windswept dunes the Wright Brothers tested their historic flying machines. Della develops a burning ambition to fly and Betty is determined to help her.

But the Great War is coming and it threatens to destroy everything – and everyone – Della loves.

Uplifting and page-turning, THE WILD AIR is a story about love, loss and following your dreams against all odds.

My Thoughts

The Wild Air is a wonderful novel, it drew me in from the prologue and had me captivated right through to the final page. This is the story of Cordelia (Della) Dobbs who knows that her place in life is to help her mother…

Book Review: Oh Horrid Night

Erin Crocker

ohorridblog3‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house was a slew of creepy-crawly horror stories guaranteed to scare you more than Aunt Gertrude’s pudding surprise (no offense to the reader who has an actual Aunt Gertrude who brings mystery desserts to family dinners).

Well, hello and welcome back for another good laugh at my feeble book reviewing attempt. Keep laughing, doesn’t bother me. When I review books, I indulge myself in gas station nachos– there’s a payoff after all.

Salem, Massachusetts-based press, FunDead Publications does it again! Headed up by Amber Newberry, Author of ‘Walls of Ash’, this small but growing press places a direct focus on publishing the macabre– which makes sense– they’re based in Salem… soooooooooooooooo, it’d be strange if they produced works about pink unicorns that fart sparkling wish fairies with purple glow-wands. At least, it’d throw me for a loop–

Following the success…
