Brilliant book! Love Suzanne Collins trilogy The Hunger Games! Carolyn McCormick is fantastic at the voices in my view! Bits of this book were bloody and gory but I enjoyed this book (I have a weak stomach so it’s not to gory.

The plot is well... Interesting but I got lost at parts.
You need to start at the first two books to get how they are in there situation.

Best series I ever heard. I am now going on to maze runner since it is similar to these books, if you don’t get into these books I would recommend Maze Runner!

I really enjoyed this book it was creative! I would recommend this to anyone who has big imagination and who thinks big! Wizards are in a different perspective in this book than in other Witch and Wizards books e.g. Harry Potter. I really enjoyed this book and David Tennant expression is incredible. There are one or two bits what might give a small fright but the frights are funny!!! Overall this is another amazing book brought to us by Cressida Cowell. 🧙‍♂️⚔️🤴🏻

Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

When the Knight Bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it's the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run - and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry's tea leaves.... But perhaps most terrifying of all are the Dementors patrolling the school grounds, with their soul-sucking kiss....

Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

The Triwizard Tournament is to be held at Hogwarts. Only wizards who are over seventeen are allowed to enter - but that doesn't stop Harry dreaming that he will win the competition. Then at Hallowe'en, when the Goblet of Fire makes its selection, Harry is amazed to find his name is one of those that the magical cup picks out. He will face death-defying tasks, dragons, and dark wizards, but with the help of his best friends, Ron and Hermione, he might just make it through - alive!

The new Logan McRae novel from the No. 1 bestselling author of Close of the Bone and A Song for the Dying. One mistake can cost you everything…When you catch a twisted killer there should be a reward, right? What Acting Detective Inspector Logan McRae gets instead is a ‘development opportunity' out in the depths of rural Aberdeenshire. Welcome to divisional policing - catching drug dealers, shop lifters, vandals and the odd escaped farm animal.

Had me laughing at time, sad at others. Descriptions are rich, leaving you to see and feel the surroundings. Plot - it works well. Could do with slapping Logan at times but I will leave that to Steal. Sadly will now have to wait for the next instalment.
