*Can I just say that the reason I'm blogging so early is because I woke up half an hour ago by my dog and couldn't get back to sleep, so I decided to read.*

My sixteenth review for the BBC is The Worst Thing About My Sister.

When I bought this book for £12.99 I didn't realise that the words would be huge, it'd be filled with really big pictures and that a quarter of the book's actually adverts for Jacqueline Wilson's other books. I have been utterly ripped off.

This book was boring and predictable. Sisters hate each other, they fight, one almost dies, friends again. It might just be my age and that I've grown out of her books, but I really didn't enjoy it. I mean, it only took me half an hour to read!

I don't really want to review it properly, I really didn't like it. It was a waste of time and money. The trailer was even worse than the book (if that's even possible). Just look!

The trailer just shows them being violent to one another, and they don't actually do that in the book.

The book was poor quality and badly-written, and I don't know how Jacqueline Wilson could have published such a thing, her standards have really dropped.

I would like to rate it for people at the age of about 7+, but the bit at the end where the sister gets seriously hurt, I think is unsuitable. I would rate it maybe 3/10, and I can't get any higher than that. It could have been made better by a sudden twist, or from Melissa's point of view. But it wasn't, and that's why I'm writing such a negative review.



The reason I haven't blogged in ages, is because of the book I was reading. Every other book in the Morganville Vampires Series has been immense, but I thought the Book Five, Lord Of Misrule, was bad in comparison.

The reason I thought it was bad was because it just dragged on. Rachel Caine is a brilliant author, and she describes very vividly, but I think she described maybe too vividly in this book. She described in detail every little thing that happened, and I just got bored with it. I didn't really want to carry on reading, but I didn't want to miss any key information. There weren't any parts that made my heart race,. which is what I expect in the Morganville Vampires. My hands didn't shake at all. I just think it was a rather boring book. Nothing really exciting happened, until the last two chapters where something finally did happen, but it left on a cliffhanger. I normally love the suspense in a cliffhanger, but considering that the book had dragged on, I didn't want it to drag onto another book. That's why I'd rate it a 4/10. Again, I'm rating it for teenagers, but this book would actually be okay for 11+ to read. Sorry, Rachel Caine, but not your best effort.



*Read last post to see why I'm reviewing so early after another review...*

My fourteenth review for the BBC is Feast Of Fools by Rachel Caine. It is the fourth book in the Morganville Vampires series.

Morganville is DEAD scary... Only the chosen few are still alive...

Brilliant. Not only are the scariest vampires in Morganville sitting around their dining table, but now they want breakfast. Though whether or not that's fried eggs or fried parents, Claire's not so sure...

With Shane with the hole in his stomach, Michael a scary vampire, Eve a vampire in training and Claire as a slave to the vampires, life isn't looking so bright. But then again, any brighter and the Vampires could burn...

Mr Bishop has some surprising news- he's Amelie's long-lost father. Thing is, he wants Amelie dead. He hates what she's achieved and would do anything in his power to stop her. So what if it costs a couple thousand lives...?

A secret's leaked out into the Vampire community- They're all going to die and there's nothing they can do to stop it. Myrnin's gone mad and is trying to eat Claire every five minutes and even Amelie's ill...

I'll let you into another secret, Amelie's got a secret sweetheart. They can't bear to be apart, but Morganville can't bear for them to be together. Would they die for the sake of the town? Or would the town die for them..?

Hmmm, let's do a murderer count, shall we? There's... four altogether now. One tried before. One killed millions. One kills for the fun. One got away...

The ball of the century is coming up, and everyone must prepare. Each vampire is taking a human. Shane has been snatched by evil Ysandre. Michael's taking Monica. Oliver's taking Eve. Amelie won't take Calie. So Claire must find someone to go with, it's a matter of life and death...

Again, I would rate this book a 9/10 and would recommend it for teenagers. My heart has never pounded so hard before. Shh, heart. Don't let the vampire's hear...



*Okay, so i know I said I'd slow down with the reading, but it's too hard! I read two books and said I wouldn't review them, but I couldn't do that either!! So I'm going to review them now...*

My thirteenth review for the BBC is Midnight Alley by Rachel Caine. It's the third book in the Morganville Vampires series.

Claire Danvers has made a mistake. But, like every mistake, it can be fixed. Can't it?

Things gone wrong in Morganivlle:

-Claire has just signed herself, her soul and her service to Amelie, Morganville's Queen. Amelie is so badass, all the other badass vampires back down without a fight. Claire's in deep trouble.

-Michael's a new-born vampire. What's worse, Eve is dating him. Shane now hates him, and even Claire feels edgy around him. After all, he could kill a thousand men in ten minutes. What makes them so sure he won't do that to them?

-Claire's got a new teacher. He's a very old, very clever, very strict vampire teacher. He's teaching her magic, magic that doesn't exist. Well, that's what her average physics class said...

-Claire knows a secret. A very big secret. A secret that could kill all vampires. But now Michael's a vampire, she can't do that. Can she?

-Shane's leaving. He can't stand the sight of Michael, and he's got nothing to hold him back. Besides, he doesn't actually love Claire...

-Monica and Claire are now BFF's. Just become Claire's become super popular human heroin of Morganville. But popularity can't buy friends. Right?

-Someone's got a death list. Many girls have died. And now... and now... Michael's dead. Wait... that isn't Michael?

-The parents are in town. First Claire's, now Amelie's. thing is, someone's parents are out to kill. Then again, who blames them? After all, there's nothing to lose, but everything to gain.

I would rate this book 9/10 and would recommend it for teenagers, as some parts can get a bit messy...



*I know, you're probably wondering how I read it so fast. Well, I read Stuff yesterday but I didn't have time to review so I only just reviewed it. I did in fact read The Dead Girls' Dance last night and earlier today.*

My twelfth review for the BBC is the second book in the Morganville Vampires series, The Dead Girls' Dance, by Rachel Caine.

Oh, Shane. Poor, poor Shane. He only went and called his Dad and his scary followers whilst he was in an emergency. They cycled down on their big scary motorbikes to kill all the vampires. After all, a tooth for a tooth. They did kill Shane's mother and sister. And now, they're going to kill Shane because of that phone call. Silly, silly boy. Doesn't he know you're never safe in Morganville? More fool him.

Shane's dad surely doesn't know the risks of vampire slaying, if he has the guts to put his own son's life on the line. Right? Then why would he do it? The obvious is that he wants vengeance on his wife and daughter's lives, but maybe there's a hidden truth? Anyway, Shane's going to die and he's just run away. What a coward.

Claire loves Shane, she really does. But then why is she going on a date with another boy called Ian. And why would such a good looking boy ask Claire to the Dead Girls' Dance? He's hardly a vampire...

All vampires are evil. Or so they say. When someone in the Glass House has a broken connection with a vampire, it can only mean bad news. Then again, the Glass House itself was bad news at first, right? So it could mean good news...

Someone killed him.
Someone knows.
Two people know.
They were in it together.
Now he's dead.
Now they're all going to die.
And it's all his fault.
Yet he's still alive.
How's that fair?

I would rate this book a solid 9/10 and would recommend it for teenagers. This book... was truly... immense.



Okay, so I know I said I was going to slow down with the reviews, but my new library books were just SO tempting!

My eleventh review for the BBC is Stuff by Jeremy Strong.

I chose this book because the last few books have all been chick flicks, and I wanted to read from a boy's point of view.

This book was actually quite good, and I enjoyed reading it. It's all about the life of a fourteen year-old boy, told from the perspective of a fourteen year-old boy. Stuff's life has three major problems at the moment. They are-

1) Stuff's home has just been invaded by his Dad's new girlfriend. Sherry Trifle is thin and pretty, why would she like his dad? And her daughter is horrendous. Sheesh, Tasha doesn't even laugh at his jokes. She's got scruffy hair and a heart of twigs. Actually, does she even have a heart at all? And to make it all the more worse, Delfine's brother likes Tasha! Like as in like-like. Like.

2) New girl at school is perfect for him, but Stuff's already got a girlfriend. Delfine. He would break up with his stupid, clingy girlfriend, but her brother would break every bone in Stuff's body if he even thought about breaking up. Also, Stuff's best mate has got eyes for Skye (the new girl) too, and Skye might like him back...

3) Sherry Trifle and Tasha have a pet rabbit, who now lives in Stuff's house (well, technically his dad's...). Pankhurst is an evil man-hating rabbit, who should be put down for attempted murder. She hates both Stuff and his dad, and is surely on a mission to abolish all men. Is she really a rabbit? Or is she.. is she... IS SHE A MONSTER?!?!?!

And that's the final straw. Stuff must leave his own beloved home to go to... Well, anywhere really. But that's not the point. Maybe then someone will sit up and take notice. Yeah right, like Stuff's plan was ever going to work...

This book was really good, and it didn't go on for ages. Also, it was full of facts. Did you know how many sausages went down with the Titanic when it sunk? 20,000!

I would recommend it for ages 12+ and rate the book 8/10. I especially loved the illustrations!!


Quick Note...

Apparently, my one-review-every-day lifestyle isn't good for me, and I have to do all my homework. So I'm going to slow down the reading as long as I can still reach my 100 books this year. Capiche? And just because I'm missing out on adding today's picture...


Goodbye for now, though I shall probably be back tomorrow anyway.



My tenth review for the BBC is Million Dollar Mates; Paparazzi Princess by Cathy Hopkins.

Paparazzi Princess is about a girl called Jess who lives in the poshest apartment in town. Or, rather next to the poshest apartment in town, anyway. It's coming up to the Christmas holidays and Jess has got two boys she'd like to spend time with.

JJ- Famous and lives at Porchester Park. Creamy dark skin, rich hazel eyes, sweet soft lips and a heart of gold. But is he already taken?

Tom- King of the school, super cool. Smooth tanned skin, deep blue eyes, daring confidence and a licence to melt your heart. But does he actually like Jess?

And to top it all off, new girl Riko moves into the block. Her intimidating beauty and confidence sets Jess unease as Riko wants to be friends. Though, she isn't really acting like a friend. Should she believe what Riko says, or is not all she says she is?

Can you trust reporters?
Can you trust the homeless?
Can you trust boys?
Can you trust your 'friends'?
There's only one person to ask...


I would rate this book a 7/10 and would recommend it for 9+.



My ninth review for the BBC is Girls In Tears by Jacqueline Wilson.

Girls In Tears is the fourth book in the GIRLS quartet. It is about a girl called Ellie who tries to deal with the torture of being a teenager. Three things she hates about her life right now-

1) Her beloved boyfriend Russell stops loving her. He buys her a cheap little plastic ring, and then ignores her completely. He's starting to go off her, she can tell. Well, she doesn't blame him. Who'd want to be seen with a big fat ugly lump like her, let alone love a big fat ugly lump like her? She thought Russell, but he's obviously got another girlfriend.

2) Her best friends hate her. Nadine starts seeing this creep she met on the Internet. He says all these lovely stuff to Nadine, but Ellie knows he's a fake. Or is she actually jealous of Nadine? And Magda's just blatantly ignoring Ellie. But not only that, she does something much, much worse. Magda breaks Ellie's heart in two, with no help from Russell.

3) Her family's deserted her. Dad's got himself a student girlfriend, and he stays late every night with her. And he's so jealous of Anna, he hates to see her as such a success. Anna doesn't feel like a success though, she's got no support. She might as well quit. Eggs is being a nuisance and is doing the opposite to what people ask him to do, and now Ellie's having to take care of him as there's no time in either of her parent's lives. Sheesh, they haven't even got a lump of butter to eat.

So that's it, Ellie's life is ruined. She's waiting for the big apologies off everyone, but they're just not happening. Does she have to do everything?

I would rate this book 7/10 and would recommend it for people aged 8+.



My eighth review for the BBC is Glitter by Kate Maryon.

Glitter is about a girl called Liberty who's been showered in money since the day she was born. Life is perfect for Libby, the only thing it's missing is her Mum, who died before she had a chance to say goodbye. Libby lives in a wonderful boarding school with her best friend Alice, and every night is like a big sleepover... or, that is until her Dad becomes bankrupt.

Libby's older brother Sebastian is allowed to stay at the school, as he's almost finished, and he's perfect at everything. Unlike Libby, who's dad will never love her. He hates everything about her, from the way she acts to the way she loves music. She's always walking on eggshells around him.

Then Libby gets sent to a horrible school, and life is horrendous for her. If it wasn't for Cali, Libby might just curl up and die. Libby's life carries on like that, until the night she runs away. She gets back to find, her dad gone...

Libby stays with Alice and Alice's mum, but she feels so different in comparison to their perfect lives. Libby cannot stand it, and soon she's back to the dump she lived in. And then a secret comes out. A secret so big, it will either tear her apart or fill in the gap in her heart. \a secret so big, it will show the dust swept under the carpet. A secret so big, Libby might finally feel close to her mum again...

I would rate this book 9\10 and would recommend it for 10+. Libby's life is described so vividly, I felt like I was actually there with her. Standing next to her as her life unravelled. Beware though, get a tissue at the ready, you'll be shedding tears everywhere!!


My seventh review for the BBC is A Million Angels by Kate Maryon.

A Million Angels is about a girl who's father goes off to war. Everyone suffers from him not being there, but it's in his bones. Especially now Mum's pregnant.

Jess is making it worse by over-reacting and saying how she bets they're all dead. Jess is only happy because then she might be on TV! What an awful thing to say!!

Jemima's life is falling apart, but at least she knows how to get Dad back. All she has to do is be bad at school, break a few bones and become ill, so the soldiers have no choice but to send him home! Then everyone can be happy! But things spin out of control.
Jemima's being questioned under attempted murder.
She didn't do it!
Did she...?

I would rate this book 9/10 again and would recommend it for 11+. It's quite depressing, but you learn a lot from it! I'm still wiping the tears from my eyes...



*First up, I'm trapped indoors because of the snow. We live on a private road and it's completely iced over, and we ca't get out because we've got a little car. Just thought I'd give you a heads up so you don't wonder why I'm not at school.*

My sixth review for the BBC is Forgotten by Cat Patrick.

London remembers her best friend getting her heart broken.
London remembers her boyfriend's death.
London remembers her future baby's funeral.
The events just haven't happened yet.

London Lane remembers her future, but her past is blank. She gets by everyday by writing herself notes, about what had happened that day, before she sleeps and forgets everything. The doctors say there is no cure, that her brain is perfectly normal. They don't know the half of it.

Firstly, her best friend's boyfriend is horrible. Why? He's their teacher. But shhhh, no one must know. London remembers her getting her heart broken, and the teacher leaving his family.

She remembers the death of her boyfriend, even though she forgets him every morning.

And she remembers the funeral of her future baby.

She sees it in the future, so she can't change it. Can't she? She's managed before, but this time is different. She's got to save her dead brother...

This was a brilliant book, I was hooked in seconds. It was full of suspense, unless you're like London, you can't possibly guess the ending. I would rate it a 9/10 and would recommend it for teens and pre-teens.


Quick Note!!

Just a quick note...

I would like to thank Fiona Dunbar quickly because she pointed out the fact that I've been spelling 'awkward' wrong!! Slightly embarrassing... Anyway, I've changed it everywhere except on previous posts and the URL. So, sorry for the typo!!

aWkward donkey!(:


As I read Silver Dolphins; High Tide last night and only just posted the review, and I've just finished Chocolate S.O.S, I'm posting both reviews on the same day. Just thought I'd let you know so you don't assume it takes me five minutes to read a novel.

This review is on Chocolate S.O.S by Sue Limb. It's the sixth book in the series.

This book is about a girl called Jess Jordan who is dealing with the split-up of Fred, her ex. And FYI, she dumped him, not the other way around!! Well, he was being so rude and arrogant!! And then, Jodie becomes an item with Fred... how could she?! So Jess then becomes a woman on a mission, to win her Fred back! She feels empty without him!

Jess tries everything, from ignoring Fred to showering Fred with insults, but nothing works. And then Jess get's the chance to give Fred some of his own medicine, as she gets together with Luke. The bad thing? Jess falls for him.

Will Jess ever get back together with Fred?
Will she WANT to?
Or has Luke got a secret of his own...?

I recommend this book for tennagers, and would rate it 8/10.



Silver Dolphins; High Tide is the ninth book in the Silver Dolphins Series by Summer Waters.

It' a really happy, feel-good book about two eleven year olds, who's jobs are to take care of the sea-life. Not only do their legs meld together to form tails,but they can also talk and play with dophins!!

In High Tide, the Stage Struck tv team, film their show at Sandy Bay! But the thing is, they just won't stop littering!! And with Lauren being reall mean to Antonia, things get difficult.

Will they be able to show everyone the effects of water pollution?
Will Lauren stop being so mean?
Will the rescued seal Tilly survive?
Read the book to find out!!

I would rate this book 7/10. I would recommend it for younger readers as a novel, or older readers as a quick and easy read (like I did). It'll leave you in a happy mood all day!!


Book City Chick- 100 Books In A Year

I'm also going to do the 'Book City Chick; 100 Books In A Year' challenge this year!!!

As it says on their website, I don't have to review all the books, so I'm going to add the five books I read last month (that I didn't review) onto the three I've reviewed this month to equal a total of eight. Pretty pathetic total, right? So I'm going to keep my head down until I reach at least twenty. As I said, I've already got about sixty-eight books laying unread on my bookshelf, so I'm going to read those first.


Interview With Fiona Dunbar!!

Hello Fiona, how are you today? Thank you so much for letting me interview you.  First up, how many books have you published so far and which is your favourite out of them?
I have to count every time I'm asked this! Thirteen – but the first three were picture books that I wrote and illustrated years ago and are now sadly out of print. I don't have a favourite! But my current favourite is always the one I'm working on at the time, so that would be Kitty Slade book four, Raven Hearts

So Fiona, where did you first start? What was your inspiration? Did you have a role-model?
Well, where my novels are concerned, that all started seven years ago, and my main source of inspiration was reading to my children. No, definitely no one literary role-model; I have taken inspiration for my writing from many and varied sources, both for adults and children – films, too. Of the books that I read to my kids, the ones that stand out in my memory vary wildly, from Roald Dahl to The Secret Garden. I loved reading them Charlotte's Web, as well: we'd read it in school when I was a kid, and I'd thought it merely 'OK' – that's what reading in school can do, unfortunately. But re-reading as an adult was a great piece of re-discovery; it is wonderful. 

Did you ever feel like giving up when writing your stories? How did you stop that feeling?
Yes! Before I was published and I'd had a few rejections – that is very hard to deal with. Most of us go through it: you have to develop quite a thick skin. There's a fine line between self-belief and self-delusion: that's what you have to find. If you know in your heart that you're writing something other people are going to want to read, you stick with it and constantly ask yourself, 'how can I make this better?'

What was the first book you've published? How long did it take you to publish?
My first book was a picture book called You'll never Guess, which I wrote and illustrated; I was lucky that time around, because it was accepted by the first publisher I showed it to – and that was before I had an agent! Second time around, with the novels, took longer; the first of those was The Truth Cookie. Once I had a draft I felt was good enough to submit, I started sending it to agents. It took a few months to find the right one, because I was being a good girl and not sending out multiple submissions – agents hate you doing that. They can also take a long time to get back to you. Then I guess it was about a year until the final book came out.
Does it cost much to publish? How much did you earn at first?
I have the sort of brain that doesn't retain numbers, but I think my advance for The Truth Cookie was something like £4,000.
How long have you wanted to be an author for?
For years it seemed I was meant to do art – and I did used to be an illustrator. But I've always liked writing too. When I wrote my own stuff as a kid, it was always words and pictures. I don't know why I didn't become a graphic novelist, to be honest.  
How long on average does it take you to write a book? How long on average does it take you to get a good idea?
On average – 6-9 months. I wrote Chocolate Wishes in just three months, because I had a tight deadline, a set of characters already in place, and I kind of knew where the story was going. Pink Chameleon, on the other hand, took a year. How long to get a good idea?? Blimey, there's a question. I don't really think it's measurable in that way. An 'idea' is so much more than just a concept; much of what makes it good or bad is how it plays out as you write it. I spend a lot of time developing my characters before I start writing a story.
What is your favourite book written by somebody else?
I can't answer that! I love so many books. Have a look at the 'fave reads' section on my website for some children's books I love . I do have a bit of a thing for 19th-century novels, and I'm a huge fan of Dickens. And the Brontes, and George Eliot, and Thackeray…
Have you had any other jobs, or wanted to have another job?
I liked my part-time job at the local Odeon when I was at school. I knew the whole of Saturday Night Fever and Grease word-for-word – a skill for which there has been no end of applications, none of which I can think of at the moment. After a (very) brief stint at Art College, I got a job as a commercial artist, which mostly consisted of doing storyboards for TV commercials, overnight. Later, as mentioned, I got to do Proper Illustration. Some day I might get around to writing and directing a film. 
Have you ever wanted to be somebody else?
Er, no. Next?
How did you cope as a teenager, I mean, how did you do with spots and stuff?
I was horribly insecure as a teenager. My brother was at boarding school, and I was in an all-girls' school, so I thought boys were from the planet Mars. I had no idea how to talk to them, so I was always very relieved when conversation was dispensed with in favour of snogging. At age 14 I plucked my eyebrows into such a thin arch, I had a permanent look of surprise on my face. I was so fed up with the spots on my forehead that I once went to bed with Dettol-soaked cotton wool plastered to it. The Dettol had a kind of burning effect, and I woke up in the morning horrified to find a massive brown scar across my face. The spots were a bit better after the scarring healed, though.
What is your most treasured possesion? Why?
My collection of books signed and dedicated to me by the authors; they are unique, irreplaceable and some are quite rare.
Who is your favourite author (apart from you?)
That's another really hard one! I'll go for Philip Pullman; he has the most astonishing range of ideas, and he is a great storyteller.

Have you ever got any fan-presents?
Someone sent me a bracelet once; I still have it. 

How many pets have you got? Have they influenced your writing in any way?
Unfortunately I can't have furry pets as my son is allergic; I wish I could have a cat. Somehow non-furry pets don't appeal.

What do you do when your stuck on what to write?
Spend masses of time on the internet. Read. Doodle. Listen to music. To write imaginative fiction you have to get really good at 'wasting' time.

Do people chase after you in the streets and beg you for autographs?
Constantly. I need two bodyguards, and I wear a wig as a disguise. I was once in a room with Lady Gaga, and they completely ignored her, and were all over me. I had to apologise to her.

Do you have a special writing place?
Boring answer: my study. It's a nice study. It's got a golden chicken in it.

Do you wear a writing uniform?
I find a sequinned evening dress and high-heeled sandals good for every day beginning with a 'G'. On the other days, I wear jeans and a T-shirt.

Have you got any tips for young writers?
Yes: use a REALLY BIG PEN. Having a big pen means you're an Important Writer. Alternatively, use a feather quill pen and Indian Ink on real parchment, and do lots of big, loopy y's and g's; your writing may not get any better, but it'll look LOVELY. For more (dare I say it, more sensible) suggestions, take a look at the Writing Tips page on my website,
Thank you Fiona, for having this interview with me, I most appreciate. Hope to speak to you again some time!


And the final book in the Small Blue Thing trilogy; Scattering Like Light.

Everything is coming together.
Everything makes sense.
Life is almost perfect.
But then Max comes along.

Max is hopelessly in love with Alex, and Alex is hopelessly in love with Max. But she must stay loyal to Callum. Mustn't she?

Now with three boys after her, Alex's life gets incredibly difficult. And then she develops a stalker. Who is this stalker? what do they want from her? With no help from Catherine, Alex's life spins out of control. She must go back to Callum. But he's hardly going to forgive her...

Then, with almost three-hundred people on her death list, Alex must make a descision. And soon. After all, what's she got to lose?

Only her life.

I would rate this book nine and a half out of ten. Again, I would recommend it for teens and pre-teens.


Perfectly Reflected is the second book in the Small Blue Thing trilogy.

Three people are out to get Alex.
Someone wants to expose her secret.
Someone wants nothing more than her gone.
Someone wants her dead.
Could they be working together?

When someone throws a golfball through Alex's window, it couldn't possibly be an accident. Attatched to the golfball is a piece of paper, 'Alex, I know your secret.' Things get from bad to worse, and soon Callum is gone. They stole him away from her to make her miserable, and Alex will do anything to get him back. Anything. At the end, when she thinks everything's going to be alright again, the Epilogue tells us she hasn't. Alex... killed him.

I would recommend this book again for teens and pre-teens, and would rate it a definite 9/10. It wasn't as good as Small Blue Thing (my now favourite book), though it had more supnse and secrets. I guess I just couldn't stand not knowing!! Again, it leaves you on an unbearable cliff-hanger...

By The Way...

I've read (and thoroughly enjoyed!!) S.C Ransom's Small Blue Thing trilogy, as I'm trapped indoors because of the snow, so I've had the whole day to read the second and third books. I'm just going to upload both the interviews and I thought I'd tell you, so you don't assume it takes me two minutes to read a whole book...



Here is my interview on Small Blue Thing, by S.C Ransom.

Here is what I thought of the book...

Small Blue Things is the best book I've ever read. I'm not just saying that, I really loved it!! It kept me hooked 'till the last page, it was like I was under a spell! I literally COULD NOT put it down!! It has everything; romance, betrayal, lies, secrets, hope, death... your heart will race, you hands will shake, you may even cry! The story is beautiful, and the cover represents it perfectly. I don't know if you can see by the image, but the letters actually catch the light and sparkle.

It's about a girl called Alex who finds a beautiful bracelet in the Thames. The bracelet fits perfectly, like it was made for her. In the middle of the bracelet, there is a small, blue stone. There's something magical about it. Alex can talk to the Thames' dead.
And then Callum turns up, astonishingly gorgeous. Alex really loves Callum, and he loves her too. Right? That's not what Catherine says. Torn in two, Alex has to make the right descision. But who can she trust? Callum or Catherine?
Then right at the end, when everything's going fine, the Epilogue comes. It'll leave you questioning not only the book, but yourself. It leaves you on a real cliffhanger.

I would recommend this book for teens and pre-teens, and rate it a definate 10/10!! This book. Is. Breathtaking...

Our First Book!!!

Hello again!
I know there's only four members altogether, but I'm hoping it'll grow!!

Our first suggested book is....
