Shouldn't You Be in School? - LemonySnicket

Title: Shouldn't You Be In School?
Author: Lemony Snicket
Series: All The Wrong Questions, 3
Format: ebook
Length: N/A
Rating: 3.5 stars

 

Synopsis: Is Lemony Snicket a detective or a smoke detector?

Do you smell smoke? Young apprentice Lemony Snicket is investigating a case of arson but soon finds himself enveloped in the ever-increasing mystery that haunts the town of Stain'd-by-the-Sea. Who is setting the fires? What secrets are hidden in the Department of Education? Why are so many schoolchildren in danger? Is it all the work of the notorious villain Hangfire? How could you even ask that? What kind of education have you had?

Maybe you should be in school?

 

Favourite character: Lemony, Pip & Squeak
Least favourite character: Stew

 

Mini-review: I thought this book was great. Definitely preferred the lack of Theodora and Officers Harvey & Mimi. 

I keep wondering, though, how much research the author had to put into these books to be able to give random facts about caviar. 

I really like how each book adds new characters on to the old ones, so that the cast just keeps growing and growing.

Also, was there a gay couple in this book? The Talkie Brothers, who are both referred to as uncle by Ornette, but then Lemony says "They didn't look like brothers."

Still free for kindle
Free Comic Book Day - Star Wars Adventures - Collectif Ulysse

Its free, so if you really love Star Wars you might want to check it out.  The best thing about it, however, is the cover.  It is a standard hero stranded on strange world, kid falls for droid tale that we have seen how many times  before.  The second story is another classic droid story.

Review ~ Great read!
Bloodrush (The Scarlet Star Trilogy Book 1) - Ben Galley

Book source ~ Tour. My review is voluntary and honest.

 

When 13-year-old Tonmerion Hark’s father, Prime Lord Hark, is murdered on their front steps Merion is sent to live with his last living relative, his aunt Lilain. The problem for Merion is that she doesn’t live in London. Or even in the Empire of Britannia. She lives across the Iron Ocean in the wilds of America, the New Kingdom. But not in one of the bustling cities. Oh, no. Poor privileged Merion has to trek all the way out to Wyoming and live in Fell Falls, the latest settlement at the current end of the Serped Railroad Company’s railroad line. But at least he wouldn’t be going alone. Traveling with him is his best friend, Rhin. Except no one knows about Rhin, being that he’s a faerie and all. Let the adventure begin!

 

Ben Galley has created one hell of a world in Bloodrush! This is fantasy at its finest. The writing flows so easily and the world is so creative! I mean, who would think that Wild West meets Fantasy would be such an interesting combination? I love everything about this tale. Except Merion. Okay, okay, I know he’s a 13-yr-old boy who is used to a life of privilege, but the way he reacts to everything and his attitude in general still gets on my last nerve quite a lot. But really, that’s just me. I can step back and tell you that he acts just right for his setting. But he still pisses me off and I can’t help it. To make any book a delicious meal for this reader, I need to at least like a main character (more than I do Merion - way more). But this is told from several POVs so it’s not like I’m stuck in Merion’s head all the time. There are other great characters to hop around in. And there’s the mystery of Prime Lord Harker’s murder. Not to mention the dangers way out there in Wyoming. And don’t get me started on the Harker family secret. Oh, boy! It’s a damn good one and nothing I’ve read about in any book, which is saying something. There is one hell of a good story here, make no mistake. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good yarn.

The Neverending Story (A Puffin Book) - Michael Ende

Being an ancient giant turtle living in a swamp apparently leads to extreme ennui.
