The Book Hangover

You know when a book is so good, that once you’ve finished it (like 7 times), when you try to read something else – but all that’s in your head is how freaking amazing the last book was. Yea. That. I love Sarah J. Maas, I am in love with her writing. I’m a huge fan of the Throne Of Glass series, so last year when I saw she had released a new series – A Court of Thorns and Roses, I bought it. Not really expecting to love it as much as I love ToG. How wrong I was… … Continue reading The Book Hangover

The book with ALL the gifts

So. Wordyness is happening today. DANGER, WILL ROBINSON, DANGER! I’m probably going to write a bunch of spoilery type stuff. Plan to read the book? Haven’t finished the book? Then don’t read the blog post, genius.  I finished ‘The Girl With All The Gifts’ a few nights ago. And now I’m going to chat at my blog about it. Okay, first of all I had no idea that this book was in fact a zombie book. Seriously. From the short synopsis on amazon (I’m a Kindle junkie, I live on bloody amazon), I thought the story was going to be … Continue reading The book with ALL the gifts

Sar’s ShOcktober// TWD Ramble Part 2

  ‘This is not a democracy anymore!’ Day 27. Yea, it’s another Walking Dead (TV series, not comic series, although certain aspects of the comic will be mentioned). I just watched S3E2 last night…and wow. Just wow. Spoilers ahead, kids. I rambled earlier this month, about the deterioration of Rick Grimes…and I think Andrew Lincoln is playing him perfectly. Episode 2 of season 3 really drills home, just how far Rick has fallen. He went from being a very clean cut, merciful…dare I say, sort of boring =/ character…to being a borderline psychopath. He has no remorse, no more mercy, … Continue reading Sar’s ShOcktober// TWD Ramble Part 2

Sar’s ShOcktober// Zombie Brittannica

Day 8. Zombie Brittannica, a zombie novel by Thomas Emson. So today I’m gonna chat about a book I read last year, called Zombie Brittannica. Now…this isn’t gonna be one of my (many) ‘OhMyCas! Everyone must read/see/listen to this, it will complete you!’ type of posts…ZB is a must read, but not necessarily for all the good reasons. It’s a very silly book, firstly, and secondly…it’s rather OTT. Over the span of a very few short hours, zombies pretty much overtake the entirety of the UK. I mean – yea, if the zombie apocalypse happens, I’m sure it will spread … Continue reading Sar’s ShOcktober// Zombie Brittannica

Sar’s ShOctober// JTHM

“My delusionary Hell does not agree with yours!’ Day 5. I’ve mentioned Johnny the Homicidal Maniac before, during my ’31 days, 31 gifts’ posts. Nny is so awesome though, he deserves mentioning twice. Maybe even more. Nny is the brainchild of Jhonen Vasquez, the creator of Invader Zim *Doom doom doom do doom*, Squee! & I Feel Sick. Nny & Squee! are my personal favourites. I actually wish there were more than just the 7 issues of JtHM, Mr. Vasquez, get to it! =p I just love how damaged Johnny is, how not wacky he is, how he strives to just … Continue reading Sar’s ShOctober// JTHM

Sar’s ShOcktober// Heart-Shaped Box

ShOctober Day 2. Today I’m gonna talk about the book – ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ by Joe Hill. First of all, Mr Hill is in-fact the son of that relatively (okay, very)  famous writer, Stephen King. Joe Hill choose to drop the ‘King’, in favour of gaining merit based on his writing skills, as opposed to being successful on the coattails of his father. Okay, to the book. I devoured this book in a matter of hours – it’s one of those ‘I cannot put this down. And for God’s sake, do not turn off that light! Jeez.’ It’s not horrifically scary, but … Continue reading Sar’s ShOcktober// Heart-Shaped Box

There’s a ‘Strange World’ over at bp-music.co.uk!

I have a bit of a ramble (and a touch of fangirling) over at BurnipPearson-Music  about how much I love the amazing band, HIM, and then have a bit of a ramble about their latest single – ‘Strange World’. If you fancy hearing the song, and checking out the lyrics – then give this here link a click! Continue reading There’s a ‘Strange World’ over at bp-music.co.uk!
