The Dinosaur that Pooped Christmas - Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter

5/5 Stars

The Dinosaur that Pooped Christmas
Release Date: October 25th 2012
Buy it: Amazon
Add it: Goodreads

Danny wants everything for Christmas. But what he gets is a dinosaur, a very hungry dinosaur.

Danny's new dino eats up all of Christmas, but as we all know, what goes in must come out . . .

Danny is about to have the most EXPLOSIVE Christmas of his life!

There's poop, presents and prehistoric creatures in this festive feast!

I saw this book while looking at the books in Asda. I really wasn't sure what to expect for the story but I stood and it read while waiting for my mum and sister to finish shopping.

Tom and Dougie have proved that not only can they write awesome songs, but they can use their skill to write a great children's novel. It was great. It had a few lines per page and great colourful pictures that any child (or adult) would like. The story was really funny and the rhyming is great throughout. This book has a childlike humour but it appeals to people of all ages.

I think that children will learn not to be greedy which is the moral of the story.

I loved it and trust me you'll love it, your kids will love it, you will chuckle and you will pick it up again and again. I will defiantly be buying it for my 5 year old sister for Christmas.

Hopefully the guys will continue to write more stories like this.

Musing Mondays

Should be Reading
This weeks musing question comes from A Book and a Short Latte

Have you ever read a book after watching the movie/television version only to find that you don’t like the book as much as the adaptation?

Yes I read Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and thought it was rubbish compared to the movie but I'm not really a big fan of Harry Potter but I am willing to read the whole series eventually.

Saturday, November 24, 2012

Reading, Uni, writing and more reading

This post isn't really all that book related but I have read a little. This week has been a pretty good week for me and my creative mind as I have done a lot of writing on my latest work in progress (I say latest because I have so many incomplete pieces of work) haha.

Over the weekend I finally got round to start reading Fated by Alyson Noel I read the first 100ish pages and I also managed to get a lot of writing done for the first time in months (which I really need to type up onto my laptop instead of handwriting)

Monday my lecture was cancelled because the tutor was ill so after I got back from shopping I sat and read some more of Fated and did some uni homework.

I had uni on Tuesday so I didn't get to read that much even thought I could have read it on the train but it was raining so I left the book at home and when I got home I was to tired to read.

Wednesday was my day off but I wasn't feeling to well so I slept most of the day but I managed to read a few more pages of Fated and got a page or two of writing done.

Today I didn't go into uni as I still felt ill so I managed to read more of Fated and get a few more pages of my little work in progress done. My work in progress is going a bit slow now because I don't know what I want to happen next.

There is no uni tomorrow because it has rained that much today that the main roads are flooded and closed and the trains have been cancelled which means I can now finish Fated and maybe look through my writing and see if I can change it and make it work a bit.

I was thinking of when I have sorted my work in progress out and know that it is working of posting a chapter or just a few pages of it on my blog so people can read it and maybe tell me what they think and what they would like to see happen next but I probably won't only one person ever reads my stuff and that is the person who runs the blog called Loaded Shelves

Hopefully by Monday I will have finished Fated and have written another chapter or two of my work in progress.

Musing Monday

Musing Monday is a weekly meme which comes from Should be Reading

This weeks question is. Do you read the ending before you start a book? Do you ever skip ahead to read the ending?

I don't normally read the ending before I start to read the book and I never skip ahead that just spoils the whole book.  But I have to be honest I have done it twice this year. I read the few pages of Jenna Burtenshaws Wintercraft: Blackwatch book before I started the book and I read the first few paragraphs from the last chapter of Everlasting by Alyson Noel. I don't plan on doing it again because it just spoils the book.

Everlasting - Alyson Noel

4/5 Stars

Everlasting (The Immortals, #6)Release Date: January 1st 2011
Buy It: Amazon
Add It: Goodreads

Everlasting is the sixth and final installment of the epic love story that has enchanted readers across the world. Ever and Damen have spent centuries facing down bitter rivals, jealous friends and their own worst fears-all in the hope of being together forever. Now in Everlasting, their destiny is finally within reach.

Will they be united-or torn apart forever? Readers will finally discover the truth in this anxiously awaited conclusion!

I read this book last month but with starting University I didn't have time to write my review because I had a lot of reading for University to do.

Everlasting is the final book in the Immortals series and I though it was great. I wasn't expecting the ending that Alyson gave the book as I thought Damen and Ever would be together forever as Immortals and not humans which is the way the book ended after Ever and Damen's journey's.

The best thing about Everlasting is that it answered the unanswered question about Lotus. Who she was and what she wanted from Ever and Damen. I also liked that it had a happy ending after bringing everyone from the series dead and alive back together and that there was no hard feelings between Roman, Haven and Drina.

I was disappointed that Ever and Damen didn't use Romen's antidote after Roman gave them the recipe to make it so that they could be together properly forever. I am glad that they will be together for as long as they are alive.

I could see where Ever was coming from when she decided that she wanted to give up being an Immortal and I can also understand why Damen didn't want to give it up because he had spent the last few centuries as an Immortal and being an Immortal is all he knew how to be but I am glad that they didn't break up because they couldn't agree on what they wanted.

All in all Alyson has made the Immortal Series the best series I have ever read and I will defiantly be reading them again but maybe this time it won't take me so long to actually read the whole series.

Musing Monday comes from Should be Reading

This weeks question was sent in by I'd rather be reading at the beach 

Name a book that you thought you wouldn't like much, but you ended up loving?
This is probably going to sound bad to Jenna because she know how much I love the series and it is now one of my favourites but at first i didn't think I would like Wintercraft by Jenna Burtenshaw. When I first started reading it I was thought mmm this is probably something I won't enjoy because it isn't my usual type of book but I was totally wrong I loved it and I have read the series twice and I am really gutted that the series has come to an ended.

Guest Review - A Baby's Cry - Cathy Glass

This months guest reviewer is my sister Sarah. Sarah isn't a very big reader so she doesn't have her own book blog, but when she does read it is normally a true story. The following is a review of a book she read a few months ago.

A Baby's CryRelease Date: March 15th 2012
Buy It: Amazon
Add It: Goodreads

When Cathy is first asked to foster one-day old Harrison her only concern is if she will remember how to look after a baby. But upon collecting Harrison from the hospital, Cathy realises she has more to worry than she thought when she discovers that his background is shrouded in secrecy.

She isn't told why Harrison is in foster care and his social worker says only a few are aware of his very existence, and if his whereabouts became known his life, and that of his parents, could be in danger. Cathy tries to put her worries aside as she looks after Harrison, a beautiful baby, who is alert and engaging. Cathy and her children quickly bond with Harrison although they know that, inevitably, he will eventually be adopted.

But when a woman Cathy doesn't know starts appearing in the street outside her house acting suspiciously, Cathy fears for her own family’s safety and demands some answers from Harrison’s social worker. The social worker tells Cathy a little but what she says is very disturbing . How is this woman connected to Harrison and can she answer the questions that will affect Harrison’s whole life?

There is only one thing I can say about this book is it was amazing.  I have never ever cried at a book before in my life, but I did near the end of this one.  It was so sad, with having a young daughter myself I found it so sad n hard that I could not imagine what Rhianna must have gone threw as well as Cathy and her two children at the point of giving away her baby and Cathy having to give up baby Harrison to his birth mother but such a good ending to a sad story.

Cover Art - Unremembered by Jessica Brody

Jessica Brody has finally announced the UK cover art for her next novel I have been waiting to see this for a while now.  Check out the Unremembered US vs UK cover and ARC giveaway that Jessica is hosting here the giveaway is open to all countries. It closes on November 16th so don't wait and enter now.

US Cover Art
UK Cover Art
The only thing worse than forgetting her past... is remembering it.

When Freedom Airlines flight 121 went down over the Pacific Ocean, no one ever expected to find survivors. Which is why the sixteen-year-old girl discovered floating among the wreckage—alive—is making headlines across the globe.

Even more strange is that her body is miraculously unharmed and she has no memories of boarding the plane. She has no memories of her life before the crash. She has no memories period. No one knows how she survived. No one knows why she wasn’t on the passenger manifest. And no one can explain why her DNA and fingerprints can’t be found in a single database in the world.

Crippled by a world she doesn’t know, plagued by abilities she doesn’t understand, and haunted by a looming threat she can’t remember, Seraphina struggles to piece together her forgotten past and discover who she really is. But with every clue only comes more questions. And she’s running out of time to answer them.

Her only hope is a strangely alluring boy who claims to know her from before the crash. Who claims they were in love. But can she really trust him? And will he be able to protect her from the people who have been making her forget?

From popular young adult author, Jessica Brody comes a mesmerizing and suspenseful new series, set in a world where science knows no boundaries, memories are manipulated, and true love can never be forgotten.

This is the first book in the brand new sci-fi/romance/suspense trilogy.

Unremembered is due to be released in March 2013

I am undecided which cover I like most but I am sort of leaning towards the US cover, my mum and sister however like the UK cover the most. Leave a comment and leave your opinions on which cover you like the most and why.

Bitter Blood (The Morganville Vampires, #13)Bitter Blood by Rachel Caine
For years, the human and vampire residents of Morganville, Texas, have managed to co-exist in peace. But now that the threat to the vampires has been defeated, the human residents are learning that the gravest danger they face is the enemy within…

Thanks to the eradication of the parasitic creatures known as the draug, the vampires of Morganville have been freed of their usual constraints. With the vampires indulging their every whim, the town’s human population is determined to hold on to their lives by taking up arms. But college student Claire Danvers isn’t about to take sides, considering she has ties to both the humans and the vampires.

To make matters worse, a television show comes to Morganville looking for ghosts, just as vampire and human politics collide. Now, Claire and her friends have to figure out how to keep the peace without ending up on the nightly news… or worse.

Cover Art - Mystic by Alyson Noel

I am happy to share the cover art for the next book in the Soul Seeker series Mystic. So far this cover is by far the best of the three. 
Since arriving in Enchantment, New Mexico, everything in Daire Santos life has changed. And not all for the better. While she’s come to accept and embrace her new powers as a Soul Seeker, Daire struggles with the responsibility she holds navigating between the worlds of the living and the dead. And with the fate of her boyfriend Dace in the balance, Daire must put aside her personal feelings and focus on defeating Cade, whose evil plans threaten everyone she loves and the world as she knows it.

Don’t miss book three in Alyson Noël’s pulse-pounding Soul Seekers series!
