Sorry to be going almost as soon as I came back, but I’ve had s significant change to my personal circumstances, and barely have time to read, let alone write book reviews. So, with much regret I’m hanging up my boots for the next few months at least. But don’t fret – I’ve secured the domain name for the next year or so and all the previous content will remain reachable for the duration.
Inkitt is a reader-powered publishing app, and what that means for readers, is that you once you sign up you get free access to hundreds of pre-published books. They have just about every genre – and fanfiction too! You can access the books online, including on HTML, iOS, and Android. You can offer feedback to the authors if you so wish. How it works for the authors, is that if they get enough reader engagement, they get their book published. Fun all round!
Hello folks – here’s what’s coming soon on Book Blog by Cari! We have Jon Ronson’s bestseller, The Psychopath Test, which is a non-fiction romp through the “madness industry”. There’s also A Little Less Than Love by Carys Smith – a book about complex relationships. And finally, there’s A Whole New World by Liz Braswell – the first in a series of books telling darker versions of the well-known Disney films, starting with Aladdin! Stay tuned!
Sometimes, you enjoy a book so much, you would happily read it again – here are 3 books I would definitely read again! There’s the Twilight series – the epic tale of love and “vegetarian” vampires, inclusive of action and drama, and an engrossing love triangle. There’s The Zahir by the Paulo Coelho (author of The Alchemist) which will have you deeply reflecting on aspects of your own life. And I really enjoyed The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time – a tale told from the unique perspective of a lad with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. Do you have books you would read again? If so, give it a mention in the comments!
Book Review by Cari Mayhew.
This is arguably the best Dan Brown book yet!
I had been a big Dan Brown fan up until I read The Lost Symbol, which is his most tedious Robert Langdon book. But The Origin has made me a fan once again! Continue reading The Origin by Dan Brown.
Hi there all! We’ve got some more book reviews lined up for you, starting with Dan Brown’s latest bestseller, The Origin; then we have guest book review post from Lucy Bunston on Meet Me at Wisteria Cottage; and finally a YA dystopian novel, Enclave. Stay tuned!
