Normally I love the Horowitz work but this one hit a weird chord with me and didn't feel quite right. His brother really annoyed me with his stupidity and a couple of times the situations were daring and amazing. It was still a fun read but the twist didn't work as well for me as I hoped. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it picks up.

Another 13 levels and things are not quite right in the world. Gill has dissapeared, Andy and Terry have some birthday difficulties and Vegetables are abound. It is chaos. Enjoyable chaos, yet some of the things were crazy. Vegetables are manic and evil but if you don't eat them they will get out of control.

An amazing second installment. I loved how much Cal grew and the chaos that reigns around. It really developed the characters at the same time whilst they are growing even more into the people that they can be. Some of the monsters are just soo cute and yet deadly which is an amazing combination. I love the interaction between Cal and Danni it really makes the book pop. I could not put this down. Am really looking forward to the next set of calamities.

Not one of my favourite books but hillariously understandable consiquences. A book of travelling and a special new machine to help them out and instead you can only guess at what happens next. A fun book for the kids but if you get the trick you may get a little bored.

Well that was different, I enjoy Molly Harper's books, she takes a different view of the supernatural side of things. It was an entertaining look into the lives of lesser known shifters as well as a rather entertaining love story. Mystic Bayou has a special property that seems to attract shifters and also have the best intergration of humans and mystics. It is an amazing place that needs studying, finding a way to progress. They make a cute couple despite the politics. I can't wait to see how the series grows.

Sometimes the cruelty of humans and their blindness to the real twisted horror of the world is shocking. I read this as I wanted to learn more about it. I heard nothing about it where I live and the fact that people try and bury this, hide the full horror worries me. We are not perfect and never will be but the cruelty of the cartels and the depth of their corruption saddens me. A must read if you can stomach it. Can be a little slow at times.

I could not put this book down! It was so full of descriptions that brought the images clearly to mind, a growth and magic system that made sense, a new concept and view on gaming dungeons from the view of the dungeon. I fell in love with this series and just can't wait to see how it grows. Danni and Cal are wonderful and the battles as well as the mechanisms just make so much sense to me. I introduced my other half to the series shortly after and am currently rereading them with him.

That was an amazing listen, I could not seem to stop. So much to learn and so little time. Some of the behaviours made my stomach turn but others were so fascinating. A great run of short bites so good for a trip to school or round to the shops to keep you entertained.

A different type of Christmas book that slides under the radar too well. A beautiful Christmas tale that shows both the consequences of some actions and the love that children bring to the situations. It was a wonderful tale that I find whilst less dramatic that a Christmas Carol ranks higher in my mind. The characters are beautiful, well spoken but at the same time full of their own life. Well written whilst a little predictable you still want to listen to it and see what the old miser will do.

Do you fancy a romp through time with no consequences or chances of meeting your previous self whilst trying to rescue your dad who is lost somewhere in the list of travels in the machine? No? Wrong book for you. Follow Tilly who is trying to find her dad, making mistakes, trying not to forget her mum and overcoming weird and frightening challenges. It was a fun read that can get your children learning some things without realising they are doing it.
