First past the post

Well, here i am in booklikes, to be honest it probably should be called bookaddict but there we go!


Introductions, well i love reading, i read about 70 books or so every year which i don't think is enough to get through my TBR pile any time soon. I currently review for sfcrowsnest.org.uk, and i'm an amazon UK Viner, i also read for the RNA romance awards and probably a bunch of other places i honestly can't remember!

The Prince: A Selection Novella

The Prince - Kiera Cass http://www.amazon.co.uk/review/R1Q6GKQMGXSILX/ref=cm_cr_pr_perm?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B008O8I8KY&linkCode=&nodeID=&tag=

The Demon Lover

The Demon Lover - Juliet Dark, Carol Goodman I absolutely loved this book, it was very well written and drew me in from the very first word.

You Had Me at Hello

You Had Me At Hello - Mhairi McFarlane http://www.amazon.co.uk/review/RTNMG0XW298UU/ref=cm_cr_pr_perm?ie=UTF8&ASIN=000748805X&linkCode=&nodeID=&tag=

Etiquette and Espionage: Number 1 in series (Finishing School)

Etiquette & Espionage  - Gail Carriger I absolutely loved this book.

A Night to Remember

A night to remember - Walter Lord An odd book, it was very well written, full of interesting historical facts, but at the same time it still tells of the deaths of hundreds of innocent people. Basically it shows the arrogance of man believing that something we created could not be destroyed by nature. That combined with dozens of mistakes and a lot of bad luck created one of the worlds greatest disasters. Luckily we learnt at least a little from this, nothing is unsinkable or unbreakable, and always prepare for the worst.

Mouse Guard: Black Axe

Mouse Guard: The Black Axe - David Petersen I really enjoyed this tale of daring mouse adventure. The characters were so intricately drawn both literally and through the words they spoke. I loved the whole world they lived in with their abilities to talk to birds, insects, and other mammals. The images within this book are so beautiful drawn with interesting little details here and there, you get both stark black and white line drawings, and lovely colourful images as well. All of which really brings the story alive, at times i even forgot about the written story, i was so absorbed by the images. Even the font the writing is in adds to the images.I would love to read the others in the series so i have a better understanding of the story as a whole.
