BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - The Wanderer (The Sin Bin #1) by Dahlia Donovan
The Wanderer - Claire Smith,Hot Tree Editing,Dahlia Donovan
The Wanderer is a story that returns to Cornwall, where we reunite with Francis and Craddock from After The Scrum. In this story, Graham, a travel writer and someone with itchy feet, meets up with one of Craddock's rugby buddies, BC, at Francis and Craddock's wedding. Things are immediately hot and 'spicy' between them, but Graham isn't prepared to settle down, so quickly does a runner, as per his usual modus operandi. The book takes a more serious turn though when Graham becomes ill whilst abroad. Tests that BC and the rest of Graham's friends and family insist on show that he has stomach cancer. 

This story doesn't doesn't pull any punches. It is not glamorous, nor is there any 'softening' of cancer and the effects that both it, and the healing process and medicines, have upon a body. Dahlia Donovan also gives great detail on how the family and friends are affected. Although a strong, serious, read, The Wanderer also manages to be full of laughter as the two main clowns constantly banter with each other.

Very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, I would definitely recommend this book, although I am aware that it might not be everyone's 'cup of tea' due to the subject matter.

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *

How many roads must Taran wander down before . . .
Taran Wanderer (The Chronicles of Prydain, Book 4) - Lloyd Alexander,James Langton

The one question that's plagued Taran all his life is just who is he? Who is his family? Is there any chance at all that his family is some sort of nobility? This last question has taken on a new level of importance to him as he has realized that he's in love with a princess and can't do anything about it without that nobility.

 

Dallben can't answer the question for him -- but he allows Taran leave to go try to find the answer himself. I've never understood just how Taran can pull this off -- there's practically no birth records in Prydain (I can't imagine), it's not like he can get blood tests done -- and he doesn't really interview anyone, just meanders around.

 

Still, he visits various corners of the kingdom -- visiting friends old and new, dipping his toe in all sorts of trades and vocations. He renders aid, and gets aid. Fflewddur Fflam shows up and spends a good portion of the novel traveling with him (Gurgi remains a constant companion). There's a confrontation with a wizard, a regional armed conflict to try to settle, a mercenary band to deal with -- as well as other woes.

 

He learns a lot, he matures a lot, and maybe even gets a dose of wisdom. It's not your traditional fantasy novel by any sense, but it's a good one.

 

As for the audiobook? Everything I've said about the other books in the series -- Alexander's introduction and Langton's performance -- holds true for this one.

 

The most emotionally rich of the books, the most thoughtful -- particularly for those of the target age. Good, good stuff.

The Wanderer (Thunder Point) by Robyn Carr (2013-03-26) - Robyn Carr

Nestled on the Oregon coast is a small town of rocky beaches and rugged charm. Locals love the land's unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine. When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he's been left an old friend's entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community's destiny in his hands.

Cooper has never been a man to settle in one place, and Thunder Point was supposed to be just another quick stop. But Cooper finds himself getting involved with the town. And with Sarah Dupre, a woman as complicated as she is beautiful.

With the whole town watching for his next move, Cooper has to choose between his old life and a place full of new possibilities. A place that just might be home.

The Wanderer
The Wanderer - Sharon Creech,David Diaz

I want to say I was 15 the first time I read this, but I'm not positive about that. I don't remember liking it that much, but I found it pretty enjoyable this time around. The mystery is obvious, but the story is still enjoyable. It made me cry (as many of Sharon Creech's books do).
