Book Review: Birdman by Mo Hayder

Book Review: Birdman by Mo Hayder

Back of the book reviewer comments. They are very common in the literary world. Little comments from reviewers about a book that appear on publisher websites, on the back of the book or on the first page. Wherever they are, when picking up a book I prefer not to read the because they are sometimes […]

Crater Trueblood and the Lunar Rescue Company by Homer Hickam

Crater Trueblood and the Lunar Rescue Company by Homer Hickam

Crater Trueblood and the Lunar Rescue Company  is not a book you can read on its own.  There are two other books in the series, making this the third and it shows. Unfortunately I have not been able to find the others and thus will be reviewing my copy as a stand alone and it […]

Book Review: The Riyria Revelations by Michael J Sullivan.

Book Review: The Riyria Revelations by Michael J Sullivan.

  Finally, finally finished with this epic. It has been a very extensive fete finishing a 6 book trilogy in a month and a half, but it’s finished. Originally, I was not going to do a traditional review of the series, I thought that doing traditional review would spoil too much. I was going to […]

BFMY: THE WORST: Once by James Herbert

BFMY: THE WORST: Once by James Herbert

Once, until recently, was the worse book I have ever read. Oh, that book was just taken over by a certain novel I might get to in due time. Once isn’t the newest story in the world. In fact, Once is very predictable. The villains are annoyingly predictable villains, the protagonist is bland and uninteresting […]

A Horror Fan’s View on H.P Lovecraft’s ‘At The Mountain of Madness’ and ‘The Shadow Over Innsmouth’

A Horror Fan’s View on H.P Lovecraft’s ‘At The Mountain of Madness’ and ‘The Shadow Over Innsmouth’

Let me start by saying I’m not an avid H.P.Lovecraft fan. In fact the only reason why I started looking into the work of Lovecraft is because my other half is a huge Lovecraftian Fanboy. Personally, I never got what was so terrifying about his stories. That was because I never knew what Lovecraft was […]

The Jester (A Riyria Chronicles Tale) by Michael J Sullivan

The Jester (A Riyria Chronicles Tale) by Michael J Sullivan

What can I say about Riyria? Well for starters they are 100% complete and utter win. Okay, maybe I can’t say that for sure since I only just started reading, Theft of Swards; the first Volume in the Riyria Revelations series, but it does look that way. Riyria Revelations are three novels within the Epic […]

BFMY: The Best vs The Worst: Nobody True by James Herbert

BFMY: The Best vs The Worst: Nobody True by James Herbert

So we have come to up date.  There are tons of other book series that I haven’t touched on, but I would really rather get this  out of the way since it is going to open the flood gates that I won’t close for a while. Through out my childhood I have read series after series that I have […]

BFMY: Remember Me By Christopher Pike

BFMY: Remember Me By Christopher Pike

After the Bluford Series (Yes, I will be getting back to that next month), I was in a different place, a different school and even a different country. I marked this time as my Pike/Rees years, when I became a huge fan of authors Christopher Pike and Celia Rees. While Celia had books that I […]
