Hero at the Fall by Alwyn Hamilton

An interesting take on the origin story of The Wicked Queen.

A good moral message on how beauty and vanity can destroy a person and become an obsession.

Definately going to read the others in the Villians series!

Cathythoughts That‘s some eyebrow 😳 2d

Every time I read something of Ishiguros it stays with me for a while.

A profound and thought provoking story of a robot who can think and feel, and keeps her sickly best friend Josie company whilst hoping for her recovery.

Seeing the world through Klaras eyes is refreshing as she tries to navigate a human world she doesn‘t quite understand.

What a gorgeous story 🖤

IuliaC Great review! I enjoyed this novel very much👍 4d

Day of the Triffids | John Wyndham
post image
Pickpick

Carnivorous and disturbing plants decide to use a freaky event which blinds the world to rise up and cause humanity to revert back to their more primitive ways.

Triffids are creepy and a little weird and nothing is really given away about what they are or how they came to be on earth, our main character Bill somehow manages to survive and find happiness throughout the shitshow of the apocalypse 👍🏼🤣 good job Bill!

Another classic down 🎉

DinoMom Love the mug! 1w
rwmg I had the distinct impression that the triffids had escaped from some sort of genetic experimentation laboratory a few years before the story and become a fashionable garden plant. 1w
LostInSpace @rwmg possibly, he briefly touched on what they were but there wasn‘t a solid classification, Wyndham left most of that to the imagination I think! 1w

I was drawn in by the cover and feel of this book however I felt deflated and disappointed after finishing it.

It promised a much more enthralling story than it delivered. The writing is well done and very atmospheric but the storyline and romance really fell short of my expectations.

This could have been a really intriguing story, with wreckers scavenging off victims of shipwrecks but overall it was very dull and left a lot to be desired.

Such an enjoyable read.

I loved the characters, the storyline, I didn‘t see the twist at the end coming!

Such a cool little premise and I wonder whether shops like the one in the story actually existed - most likely!

Definately recommended - first 5⭐️in ages!

Enjoyable historical fiction with a hint of gothic horror.

Again though I felt it was too long, all the books I‘m reading lately seem to go on and on forever!

I liked the story, the twists and turns and I didn‘t guess the ending at all.

Worth a read 👍🏼

Atmospheric and unlike others I have read by King.

Enjoyable but subtle, quite a subtle beginning and middle and a rollercoaster of an end.

Each character was perfect and had their own stories to tell. I particularly enjoyed Wireman.

Haven‘t been feeling well due to being heavily pregnant 🤰🏻 I have been reading but not writing reviews, so I thought I‘d write a short one for this book.

Eerie, spooky, and atmospheric however very slow until the end where it suddenly goes super fast. It was an okay read, not amazing but interesting enough to hold my attention.

A very sad and poignant memoir of two people who fell in love whilst prisoners at Auschwitz.

As I have read other memoirs similar to this I did feel the author had softened the cruelty that had happened during this time - but I suppose some readers wouldn‘t necessarily want to be exposed to the true horrors of what went on during those years.

Overall it was a love story, and two people who found hope where there wasn‘t any ❤️

A short but enjoyable read on every day Egyptian life.

Touches on food, drink, travel, religion and temples, the elite and the every day worker.

Such a fascinating time in history, I wish I could have experienced what life was like back then.

What a gorgeous story, and it‘s a chunker at 800 pages!

Eadaz was my favourite character, her relationship with Sabran was just so sweet, honest and loving.

I loved the world, the story, the characters, everything came together beautifully and I really loved reading it, didn‘t want it to end!

I really really enjoyed this one, which makes a change as recently I seem to have read quite a few duds!

The concept was great, the book flowed really well and was a great mix of horror, humour and satire. Hendrix does a great job of weaving a story. I loved the way the book is set out like a catalogue too.

Definately a thumbs up 👍🏼

Just awful.

It‘s just a load of gibberish about building a lift to other planets, which goes horribly wrong at the end.

I wouldn‘t have even said there was much storyline at all, I would have DNF but it‘s only 250 pages so I soldiered on. Would not recommend.

An enjoyable but slow paced horror.

When Lizzies‘ little sister dies in an accident she realised many years later than her little sister is ‘protecting‘ her. Unfortunately she‘s turned into monster who attacks anyone who wrongs her sister in the slightest way.

The only downside of this novel was it was too drawn out and very slow, I enjoyed it and finished it but could have been shorter 👍🏼

What a strange story.

I put this as a ‘so-so‘ simply because even though it‘s listed as speculative fiction I honestly felt there wasn‘t much meat to the story til the very end.

It follows a family who live in a region where technology has been shunned and the world is colonising a nearby planet called Qita. Although the characters were developed and well written I didn‘t feel much towards any of them.

A vague story, a bizarre ending.

When I first started reading this, I thought I was going to DNF - I struggled through the first half really wanting to give up, but I am glad I didn‘t!

The second half of this novel is so much better than the first half, we learn so much about the characters, their relationships and their motives for the things that happen, in the end I really enjoyed the story 👌🏻
