A message for me

 

A message for me by Rowan Scot-Ryder

Date finished; 16/11/2012

Pages: approx 999 words

After reading Crossroads by Rowan, I then decided to look for another of his work to compare.

Rowan writes so well and when I read his work I can picture every moment.

This short piece is poetic and very moving.

Can’t say much about the plot as it is such a short read it will give too much away.

Takes less than 10 mins to read so just go ahead!

Available for free download here at Smashwords

Crossroads

Crossroads by Rowan Scot-Ryder

 

 

 

 

 

Available for free at smashwords!

Date Finished: 16/11/2012

Pages: approx 1737 words

Sam travels back to the 1930’s and has 7 years to make his mark on the world.

I had hope of this being a really good novella but the ending was so mediocre that it disappointed.

Rowan Scot-Ryder writes very well, however, and therefore I will keep an eye out for more of his work regardless.

Image

So while searching memes to include on the blog in between reviews, we came across the popular Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.

It is a way for bloggers to write about the books they have gained recently, whether borrowed/brought/gained for review or found 🙂

We will be posting our Stacking The Shelves post every Saturday so keep an eye out!

Although unusually small for us, here is the list of books/ebooks we have acquired recently:

1. The Dating Game by Susan Buchanan

Image

2. Daddy’s home by A.K Alexander

Image

3. In the blood by Steve Robinson

Image

4. Strange Love by Victoria Pearson

Image

That’s it for now, but please get in touch and let us know what books you have brought/gained recently and whether or not they were any good.

The Turtle Boy

The Turtle Boy by Kealan Patrick Burke

Date Finished: 3/8/12

Pages: 97

Downloaded this short YA ebook rom Amazon after browsing for something light to read. After reading some of the good Amazon reviews, I decided why not. The Turtle Boy is the first in a series about Timmy Quinn and is written in the third person. The book focuses Timmy, the myths surrounding a nearby pond and the secrets behind Darryl, a boy Timmy discovered there. When it came to the ending I actually said OMG aloud and had to explain to Specs what that was all about 🙂

Full of twists and turns this ghost story will keep you interested and wanting to discover more – I now need to read the next book in the series 😀

Now go read it!!
