New Year, New Me Series: An Empty Inbox

It’s a New Year, so what do I really want to do? Empty out my whole inbox.
I tend to keep up to date with these things, but when I went travelling I let these all slide and now I am stuck with about 3,000 emails to sort out, delete or put into folders.

The sense of being organised to me, is just great. I absolutely adore things being orderly, sorted out and organised. It just gives me a peace of mind and a sense of achievement.

Don’t worry, my whole MacBook and hard drives are going to have a New Year clear out too!

Do any of you do this? Or actually enjoy doing it?
Let me know!

Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

Title: Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children

Author: Ransom Riggs

Purchase: Available in the UK and the US.

Overall Rating: 4/5

Great For: Young Adult, Fans of Thrillers

Themes: Death, Supernatural, History

Review: Ok, so I have heard a lot of hype around this book (& now the series) and I wasn’t too sure what I was going to think about this..
I actually loved this book! I was surprised at how drawn in I was to this, from the moment I started reading – I could not put it down! I ended up reading it in 2 days and it did not disappoint at any point.

Now I am looking forward to reading the second and third (and then wait for the film to come out!).
Another great little detail about this book, is that it is set in Wales – represent!

If you haven’t read this book yet, it is about a small home in North Wales where ‘Peculiar Children’ stay. They are all different, some have powers, some have odd appearances but there is a reason why they are kept away and there is a big twist but I feel like I cannot say, as it will pretty much ruin the whole book!

I would definitely recommend picking up this book, and I have heard that Tim Burton is going to be directing the film, if I think correctly?

Have you read this or the series? Show me your love or hate for this!

The Maze Runner by James Dashner Book Review

IMG_9431

I was pleasantly surprised by this book, I thought that it was going to be your typical young adult book but it was actually really enjoyable!
I had previously seen the trailer for the film adaptation and thought it didn’t look too impressive, but I fancied an easy read so I picked this up straight away!
From the very start, I was hooked. I wanted to know who they were, why they were there and what was going to happen next.
I would definitely recommend this book to many, it is even a part of a series too – so if you can’t get quite enough from just this one, there’s another 2/3 books.

As a little hint to the storyline: There are a group of boys that have been put into a new world which contains a massive maze, but they do not know who they were previously or why they are there. All I’m saying is that, they are trying to find the end of the maze.

That’s all I will give you for now, I thought to myself ‘How could there be much more to that book than just finding the end of a maze?’. Go and surprise yourself, it’s surprisingly very good and gets you hooked.

Have you read this or seen the film? Which is better?
How about the series?

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?”
