Review: As always, the Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling are always ALWAYS incredible!
I have decided to start re-reading these this year! And, as you can tell I just finished The Goblet Of Fire, which is probably one of my favourites out of the books, although I really don’t like the film adaptation of this book..
This now reminds me that I really, really want to go to the Harry Potter Studios when I get home from travelling, as I have been to The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter in Orlando a few times but not London?!

Anyway, I don’t think there’s much explaining to do about this book, as most people have read them or seen the films – you all know the jist! I just thought that I would share my excitement that I am re-reading them and you all should too! 😀

Have you re-read the books? If so, how many times? If not, will you?

My cousin has released her new book!

As the title reads, my cousin has released her new book! She has wrote several different vampire-esqe books which take a more old school approach on vampires (instead of the cliche of today!).
I haven’t been able to read this one yet, but I know that it is going to be very good as her other books keep you wanting to read more!

“For fans of Mortal Instruments, this story of witches, magic, and spooky going-ons is a perfect addition for any horror fan. 

Sometimes Halloween is all trick, and no treat. 

Danny Hallows is no ordinary fifteen year old. After his parents’ divorce, he relocates to a small Welsh town called Willow Creek where he accidentally sets off the beginnings of a 600 year old prophecy. Discovering his family are related to the last witch of the 1656 witch trials in Wales, he is faced with protecting his family’s legacy and saving Halloween from the dark sorceress Morwenna, who is hell bent on revenge for what Danny’s great-grandmother did to her all those years ago. 

Can Danny stop the prophecy before it’s too late?”

Anne Frank’s Tales From The Secret Annexe

IMG_6740

This is a great book, if you have a love for the original account of Anne Frank and her diary.
This is a short book filled with extra stories from Anne’s diary, which they have compiled together (which are not seen in the original publication).

There’s not too much that I can say about this, other than it is a collection of other stories really!

A definite recommendation to other Anne Frank fans.

Journey To The Centre Of The Earth by Jules Verne

I adored this book!
This was the first time that I had read this, and I was captivated with the story.

The book had really strong descriptions of the atmosphere, that you really felt like you were there.
I couldn’t put this down, as each time I went to stop, something else would happen!

My only down side, in my opinion was that I didn’t expect it to be so unrealistic towards the end. Don’t get me wrong, I knew that it is suppose to, but when there was a mention of the animals; it took away my attention for a fragment.
I would still say that this has become one of my favourite books, to go back to re-read.

I still really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend this book to anyone!

The Da Vinci Code (Robert Langdon #2) by Dan Brown

IMG_6742

Brilliant!

I became really caught up in this book when I first started reading it – although I started to dawdle through the book towards the middle, most events started happening which drew me in again.

This is one of those books that takes that while longer to read, due to the language and facts within. I did want to hurry up and finish the book, but after reading it and it all sank it, I found that I really enjoyed it!

I have now finished Angels And Demons (I know, not the correct order, but it doesn’t really matter) and I cannot wait to carry on reading the Robert Langdon series!

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

IMG_6392

WOW. This book blew me away! I have never read a book like this – as I am a rather nerdy girl, I was in my element; especially the references!

This book is basically about one of the world’s biggest game developer that has created a virtual world that people tend to live in, instead of their everyday lives (as their world is corrupting and becoming miserable). The game developer dies, once this has happens, there is a video posted on his website from the creator himself saying that he has built a game within the virtual world. The objective of the game is to proceed through several levels (if you can find the starting point), they will need to solve riddles and puzzles. The winner will win the creator’s entire will, which is valued of billions of dollars!

So this book is mainly about the journey of this one guy, trying to solve the riddles and levels within the game. I won’t tell you anymore about the book, as it’ll spoil it!

I couldn’t get over how much I enjoyed this book – I didn’t want to put it down, I was that engulfed in it. This is definitely one of my favourite books now, AND it has been revealed that it is being turned into a film adaptation!

Go and read this book!

The Hunger Games #1 by Suzanne Collins

IMG_6429

Firstly, I thought that The Hunger Games was going to be one overrated phase.

I had a astonishing surprise – I loved this book! Although I must admit, I did see the film first.
I had no idea what the film was going to be like, so I went on a whim – turns out that I was mesmerised by it and HAD to read the books!
In my opinion, the book was a lot better than the film!
It had so much more detail and set the atmosphere perfectly, I became addicted to reading this book and couldn’t put it down for the whole day.
I definitely felt like I got to know the characters a lot better, compared to the film too.
Overall, I would give this book a massive:
4.5 out of 5.
Now to move onto the other two books in the series!
