THE ROMANCE READER'S GUIDE TO LIFE by Sharon Pywell
The Romance Reader's Guide to Life: A Novel - Sharon Pywell

This was totally different from what I expected. It is part murder mystery, part magical realism, part contemporary romance, part historical romance, and some things I cannot name because I do not know how to name them.

From the beginning you know Lilly is dead. Neave, her sister, needs to know how. Much of the story is told through Neave's eyes but Lilly fills in her parts when it would clarify what is happening. Then you get Mr. Boppit's view. I liked Neave and Mr. Boppit (loved him actually) but Lilly should have been paddled and Neave would never have been put in danger.


As a young teen, Neave read for a neighbor lady and she "borrowed" a forbidden romance which is interspersed through the story. It parallels Neave's life and paves the way for her to grow into her life. She is stronger than she realizes and has talents she develops as they are needed.

I liked this book. It was different and fresh, not cliched.

A little update on my reading experience.
Caraval - Stephanie Garber

For those that follow, you'll know that I'm currently reading a book called Caraval by Stephanie Garber. 

 

Now that I'm nearly finished this book it is safe to say that it was quite interesting but it isn't a book I would pick up to read again. I felt like this was a book I had to read because I got it through Owlcrate. If I didn't get it through Owlcrate then I probably wouldn't have read it. (Sorry to those people that might get insulted by this post lol).

Reading Update

I'm currently reading Caraval by Stephanie Garber. This book I normally wouldn't read but because I got it from OwlCrate I feel like it would be rude if I didn't. 

I have to give everything a fair go so here it is. 

 

I'm currently up to chapter 16. Page 155 out of 416 (I think). 

 

This book is quite slow moving, I'm not gonna like... it is well written but I'm just going to warn you guys that it will take me a little while to read this book compared to my other books. 

 

 

ALSO sorry for not being on here for a little while. Internet problems e t c 

 

 

Have a good day!

Carnival Capers! (LEGO DC Super Heroes: Reader) - Eric Esquivel,Sean Wang

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

Entertaining and humorous read. Great illustrations and message. Overall, this is a good book. 

In this Lego adventure, some young superheroes learn the importance of working together as a team. 

This is a Level 2 book so it has a relatively simple plot, but it is still very entertaining. Longer sentence length and more complex vocabulary make this a good book for young readers, Grades 1 and 2. 

I also liked that there are multiple female heroes (Starfire, Supergirl, Wonder Woman) and villains (Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy). I hate when superhero books only focus on the guys. This book has a good mix of males and females. 

A good, entertaining read for young fans of DC heroes.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-05-18 08:16
Blood Promise by Richelle Mead.
Blood Promise - Richelle Mead

Spoiler Alert: Rose is super badass. 

 

I have just finished Blood Promise by Richelle Mead which is the fourth book in the Vampire Academy series, which by the way, was amazing. 

 

So through this book Rose is basically going around killing vampires in the hopes of finding her true love Dimitri. She goes to his family, meets them, hangs with them for a bit and then continues on her quest to find Dimitri. Her goal is to do what he would have wanted her to do before he got turned into a vampire, kill him. 

 

But when she finally meets him, apart from the red eyes that she could never get used to, she can still see the old Dimitri that once loved her. She can't bring it to herself to kill him until she has to leave. But she can't leave until she has done what she came to do. With still being able to see into Lissa's mind due to the bond, she see's that she's in danger because of Avery. 

 

This book kept me on my toes. I can't wait to read the fifth book but I don't have it yet because it's still coming to me via mail. But for now I'll enjoy Caraval by Stephanie Garber. 

 

5/5 Stars from me!
