“Don’t Trust This Book. Don’t Trust These People. Don’t Trust Yourself. And whatever you do, DON’T give away that ending…” – Those are the rules.

But trust me when I say, this is a must-read!

Bookish Ramblings: 3 Months Blogging – blogger appreciation & books!

Hey bookish friends,

I’ve had today’s date stuck in my mind and I thought it’d be nice to do a post marking my 3 month anniversary in the blogging world.

Book Box Unboxing: The Mystery Book Box (gunpowder, treason & plot)

Yesterday marked the arrival of my second book box from The Mystery Book Box (TMBB), I was so intrigued by this month’s theme, I had to give this box another go! If you missed last months unboxing, you can find it here. If you are currently still waiting for your November box, please note: major spoilers follow. Everyone receives the same bookish items, but the book differs (due to them being preloved). One of the new changes to this box, which I really like, is when you purchase a box/subscribe, you can now let the TMBB team know what genre of book you would like, or if there’s any specific genre you don’t want. This filled me with great joy – anything crime, mystery, thriller please! I purchased this box, it was not given to me in exchange for a review….

The theme for this month was: Gunpowder, Treason & Plot Continue reading “Book Box Unboxing: The Mystery Book Box (gunpowder, treason & plot)”

Book Review: The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis

the-wolf-road-beth-lewis

When you can find no fault in a book, you have to award it all the stars! The Wolf Road – a dark tale that is beautifully written – makes for a great literary debut with a fantastic dystopian-mystery feel to it.

From the inside cover:

Trapper told me once that your head can protect you if something truly bad happens. It can make black spots and empty places what should be filled with horror.

Since the Damn Stupid turned the clock back on civilization by centuries, the world has been a harsher place. But Elka has learned everything she needs to survive from the man she calls Trapper, the solitary hunter who took her in when she was just seven years old.

So when Elka sees the Wanted poster in town, her simple existence is shattered. Her Trapper – Kreagar Hallet – is wanted for murder. Even worse, Magistrate Lyon is hot on his trail, and she wants to talk to Elka.

Elka flees into the vast wilderness, determined to find her true parents. But Lyon is never far behind – and she’s not the only one following Elka’s every move. There will be a reckoning, one that will push friendships to the limit and force Elka to confront the dark memories of her past. Continue reading “Book Review: The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis”
