Carrie Fisher-The Princess Diarist Review
The Princess Diarist - Carrie Fisher

My first review for 2017 is a book that I completed in 2016.

 

I bought this book on my birthday in December and I didn't read it straight away but as soon as the awful news of Carrie Fishers passing came to light I had to stop what I was reading and read this book.

 

I really loved this book she didn't shy away from telling people what happened in her life and also about her and Harrison Ford, which I didn't think was that big of a deal and I have no idea why people kept going on about. 

 

There was alot of lol moment and I found myself either smiling to myself or laughing to myself and that raised questions with my family, but

honestly it was just because of how witty and sassy women.

 

I think that if you are a Princess Leia only fan then its probably not for you because it is fans for Carrie Fisher however Princess Leia fans will probably like it because it is a lot to do with the time that she filming the momentous films. 

 

Now Im not going to lie this is a terrible review its short and doesn't go into much detail but I promise my next review will be much better. My system crashed out so I couldnt post until now so I guess thats also a reason for the terrible review.

MIA

 

 

 

 

I have been MIA for a week or two and honestly I want to apologise however being away from all this has been good for me simply because I has a lot going on with my health which you already know so I wont bore you with it.

 

Except that I am now on the mend and feeling alot better and plan on blogging at least twice a week simply with things like my top 5 books in genre and anything that people want to see. My review for Hollow City is also coming tomorrow and I can't wait to write it because I really did love the story.

 

Like everyone else also this month I can't wait for Christmas and also my birthday I am not getting as many books simply because I do want to read the books I have and that but I am not making any promises because I am a complete book nerd and will just carry on buying more and more.

 

Its getting very cold here in the UK and the north east I am sat here in my double quilt so the odds of me blogging is higher because I have not got much else to do.

 

I hope everyone has had an amazing week

A 100-Year Old Mystery...
Abandon - Blake Crouch

Going into this, I thought it was going to be a paranormal horror story but it really wasn't that at all. It's actually more along the line of a mystery/thriller. The paranormal aspect was a very small part of it and almost like an afterthought that wasn't followed through with. It's written as two parallel storylines, the past and the present, that converge at the end. I seem to have a thing lately for finding stories with dual plots which I don't mind if they are done well but the shifting back and forth in this one wasn't as clear as it could have been. I found myself backtracking a few times to make sure I was even in the right century. 

I think once I was able to get out of the scary, ghost story mindset and just accept it for what it was, I was able to enjoy it more. I also like stories with unique settings and climates and Abandon is set in the back-country with mountains and caves and snowy blizzard weather so all of those things helped to endear me to the story a little more but if you're looking for a good Friday night fright, this is really not the best choice for that.

Freezing Point
Freezing Point - Karen Dionne For anyone not familiar with the Killer Thrillers group, Karen is one of many great authors who are on the list with Zoe Sharp, Sean Black and Boyd Morrison (to name just 3 off of the top of my head). They have a tag-line: Great reads - guaranteed. I think it holds true.

Anyway, Freezing Point is an eco-thriller that moves along at a cracking pace. Plenty of conspiracies, corporate greed, wacky environmentalists, scientists in the frozen wilds, idealists caught in a mess, and rats that have developed a taste for humans, all competing for the most precious resource: water.

I enjoyed this novel, which I believe is the first in a series of related eco-thrillers by Karen. The only thing I disliked was the abrupt ending. I felt there was more to come, several chapters worth, but it was wrapped up with a few lines in what was essentially an epilogue. Regardless the "great reads" tag-line holds true.
