Last Minute Update: March Book Haul

Seems I was hasty, there are 31 days in March after all 😉 new stack of books bought today (first pic) and some more Ebooks (last two pics). 

 Yes it’s quiet here at the moment, but certainly not at my desk. I’m almost at mid semester and have assignment upon assignment at the moment. But I still managed to find time to buy books 😜😂😂📚 Here’s my March book haul…

Currently Reading

So at the moment I’m between two books.



It’s a slow pace because of full time study, so I’m only ready when I can. I’d have to say that at the moment, I’m enjoying The Innocent Killer more so than The Choice. However a review will follow once I’ve finished them.

If you’d like to keep up with where I’m at in both, follow me on GOODREADS the link is on the side of the blog page 😊

Till then, happy reading

Currently I’m Reading…

So, at the moment I’m crazy busy with study. I swear there isn’t enough hours in the day to read five textbooks along with books for please. But, that won’t stop me, lol. I read in those little periods of time such as school pick up etc.

So currently I’m reading The Choice by Nicholas Sparks

and I’ve just added another to my Goodreads ‘currently reading’ which is The Innocent Killer by Michael Griesbach.

So I’ll continue to get through them at the rate that I can, and of course, post my thoughts about them after.

What are you reading at the moment?

Happy reading and buying

The Movie & The Book

safe_image.php

I’m one of those people who don’t complain about a book that’s made into a movie. Mainly because I can logically see the constraints that a movie has. A book can carry on a lot longer because words are descriptive, where as a movie has a time frame. To me, both mediums tell the story in a different way. Books with words, and movies with visual and audio.

I’d say sometimes, but really I’d be lying, that when I watch a movie I’m generally on the look out for phrases similar to “Based on the book by…” LOL. Which then entails me off on google searching for the book version of that movie. Needless to say, we all know I buy a lot more than I read. A LOT more. Doesn’t stop me from buying, and it never will!

But like I said I enjoy both mediums, so after having watched the movie I know one day I’ll go read the book too.

I was watching a movie based on a true story called Gone in the Night with Shannon Doherty in it (Brenda from 90210) and saw that it was based on a book, so I of course went and brought the book, lol.

February’s Book Buys

I suspect March will see a difference, as I’m meant to be using books as my semester reward. I’m not sure how well that’ll go though… 

Here’s a collage of my February haul 😊

  
88 hard copies and 9 Ebooks 🙌🏼 They give me such joy 💗

Happy reading and buying 😉

Review: Eeny Meeny by M.J. Arlidge

So my semester started last week, hence the lack of posting. But I’m posting now, and when I remember, lol.

This book is one that you might remember seeing… Everywhere! It was all over my instagram feed as well as bookclub on Facebook, so I knew I had to join the club and try it.

It’s the first book in the DI Helen Grace series…

12782311_1079941885404955_1689472399_nThe girl emerged from the woods, barely alive. Her story was beyond belief. But it was true. Every dreadful word of it. 

Days later, another desperate escapee is found – and a pattern is emerging. Pairs of victims are being abducted, imprisoned then faces with a terrible choice: kill or be killed. 

Would you rather lose your life or lose your mind?

To be honest after the first three chapters, I can’t say I was super impressed. The writing felt ‘new’ and the story/character set-up felt a bit stiff and a tad on the boring side. There were a few too many serial killer cliche’ lines that made me groan a little too loud and that’s when I seriously considered giving it up. BUT… I started enjoying the fact that the chapters are short and snappy. The storyline grew to be more enjoyable because the character introductions were out of the way, and I very much grew to enjoy the development of the protagonist.

While I find the topic of serial killers, a difficult one for an author to broach, for me anyway, when the author stopped focusing on the facts and cliche’s of serial killers, and just that it was a person playing psychological mind games, the story grew into one that you couldn’t possibly stop reading. I was surprised at the end, I’m not sure that anyone would have guessed who the killer was, although I did feel it was a little rushed uncovering the clues that were becoming more obvious nearing the end.

I’m looking forward to reading the author’s next book in the series Pop Goes the Weasel.

I rate the book: large_cute-bookworm 1large_cute-bookworm 1large_cute-bookworm 1large_cute-bookworm 1/5
