Review: The Trickster

The Trickster The Trickster by L.G. Miles
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I can't believe that someone actually published this story.
Come on, really? A story about childen and an eveil clown? King has already did that, and he did it magnificently!
This Novella, because I cant call that a book, just cannot compare with IT!
I just wasted my time!

Review: The Butchered Man

The Butchered Man The Butchered Man by Harriet Smart
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Not the best of books, but good non the less.

I cannot say that I loved the book. The story was nice and the characters were good, but I somehow expected more. I don't know if it is because of the title of the book, but I expected something more like Jack the Ripper, and it was more like Barnaby living in the time of Sherlock.

Probably the only thing that kept me reading was my curiosity. That and the fact that the language of the book was impeccable. I am in awe to Harriet Smart for the way she wrote the book. That beautiful language, the way the characters talked and thought. It made me believe in the story and it made me believe I was really there, listening to them.

That was ingenious!

Review: The Blackout

The BlackoutThe Blackout by Stephanie Erickson
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I can't say that I liked the book.
The idea of the book was great, but the book itself was bad. I think, the end was especially disappointing.
This is the second book I read by this author and it still sucks.
I really hate giving bad reviews, because I have not yet written even a short story myself. I appreciate all the effort the writer has put to complete the story, and that's the only reason I am giving it two stars. That, and the fact that I got the book free on Amazon. Nevertheless, if I had payed any amount of money for it, I would have been honestly mad and critical to the writing and the development of the story.
I am sad to say that this would provably be the last I read by this author.

Quote of the day - Anger management

You know what, I have a hard week ahead of me. It's going to be very stressful and very exhausting. In a way the past year of my work is going to be exposed at the end of this week. I am stressed and angry with all the people what try to put me down and sabotage me, no matter if it is willingly or unwillingly.
So today I tried to find a good anger management quote, to repeat as a mantra throughout this week and as far as I can see this is going to be it:

The best fighter is never angry
- Lao Tzu

I hope that this quote will help fight my way to victory this week!

Quote of the day

I like the rain so much. I love sitting on the balcony, cuddled in a fluffy blanket with a cup of hot coffee in one hand and a good book in the other, reading to the sound of the falling rain.

To all the people out there, who dream the same dreams as me, I wish a rainy, warm ready weekend!

Big Thank You to my Readers!

Dear readers,

I don't know about you, but I am a big fan of reading books. I assume, if you have taken the time to go trough my blog, you have already seen that. I love to read books from almost all genres and from time to time it is really hard for me to decide what to read next. If I have to be completely honest, that
was the reason why I started writing this blog. The problem is that as old as the blog is, I still feel out of my debt with it. I am trying to organize and optimize it and believe me, I know that I am not doing a great job.
One of the things I have in my To Do List, is to reorganize the labels and the categories better. I am planing to end up with a lot shorter list, which will allow you, my readers to find what you are looking for more easily.
Having that in mind, I posted a poll! I would be happy to know what types of book do you like to read.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog!

I wish you all a great day!

Review: The Emperor's Tomb

The Emperor's Tomb The Emperor's Tomb by Steve Berry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book!
The fact is that my mum gave me the book 1 year ago. It was hard for me to start it. I have started reading the book three or four times. I don't know why I couldn't continue reading it in the past. Once I started it the last time and passed the first 60 pages, I just couldn't let it go.

Mr. Berry did an amazing job. I am speechless.
The book was so interesting and fast pacing. It was cleverly written and it was sooo informative. The Emperor's Tomb made me start on the Cotton Malone series.
What I like the most about this book is that most of the information, which is used in the book is true and by reading it, one can really enrich him or herself.

Thank you mummy, for providing me whit the nice adventure of reading about China.
And... thank you Mr. Berry for making this trip with Cotton so pleasant and so beneficial. I can't wait to see where else your books will take me.
