This is the sequel to "A Gift Of Death" and what a glorious sequel it is, this was just excellent!

"Black Hearts and Red Teeth" is a continuation of the first book, the story continues and the vampires are still wreaking havoc and getting away with it!

There are new hunters on their tail now, will the vampires finally get their comeuppance?

Twainy I liked A Gift of Death! I hope this gets an audiobook! 3d

This one has everything the typical Volpe novel has, blood, gore & smut!

It's intense and fast-paced. I was always wanting to know what was going to happen next, so I burned through this pretty quickly.

There are some despicable characters in it and I enjoyed it when they got their comeuppance.

A superb sequel.

This book has everything you need to know about living more sustainably.

It is over an inch thick, with over 400 pages, colourful illustrations, easy-to-read instructions, and is packed full of useful information that can be referred back to time and time again.

I recommend it to anyone who has an interest in being more self-sufficient.

Long After Midnight | Ray Bradbury

Every story in this book takes you somewhere interesting.

Some of them are hits, some are misses.

His short story collections though are definitely worth the read because there are always a couple of gems.

There's a story in this that's going to be up there with my all-time favourites, "A Story of Love"

I recommend it, even just for that short story.

This is basically a repeat of his book 'The Miraculous Results of Extremely High Doses of the Sunshine Hormone Vitamin D3'

So if you've read that, there's no need to be reading this one.

Do I believe there's benefits of high-dose vitamin D3 therapy? Absolutely.

Definitely worth trying if you become sick or want to prevent sickness.

I'm aware that I'm in the minority here but I just found this book boring.

Took me forever to get through it also, it was like wading through treacle.

There were some funny moments sure, but mostly it was slow, repetitive and depressing.

Not my cup of tea at all and certainly in my opinion, not worth the hype.

This was a fascinating little read, it goes into detail regarding how the brain is stimulated by watching horror films among many other things.

It's not a book discussing horror films, it's more on the science behind watching them and how it stimulates the brain.

It also delves into certain aspects of horror films, like why we find them scary and why we're attracted to entertainment that scares us.

This book covers everything to do with novel writing.

It's ideal for beginners, such as myself because you get to learn the basics but also for more experienced writers looking to keep their skills sharp.

The chapters cover different aspects of novel writing and can be read in the order that interests the reader.

I've read a few similar books, this one is the best.

This is a brilliantly detailed history of Stephen King's life from his childhood experiences of a disrupted and lonely life to his rallying days at college, right up to the release date of this book, 2010.

There were lots of trivia and things I never knew, it was a fun read and I learned quite a bit about the man and his books.

Essential reading for King fans!

The title is a bit misleading, this isn't a foraging book, it's a book on wild food recipes.

There's a large section on mushrooms which is great if you know what you are doing, I'm still learning the identification of mushrooms.

This wasn't what I was expecting from this book, I'm looking for an up-to-date book on foraging with proper colour identification pictures.

I'll keep this one though, for future recipes.

This was a banned book before it was reissued, so naturally, I had to get my hands on it as I've always been interested in this topic.

This particular one contains various stories from various women of different backgrounds who have been abductees.

Although somewhat repetitive and lacking a solid recap of these events, alien/UFO enthusiasts won't be disappointed.

If you want to hear what others have experienced, this is a great start.

Not listed on Litsy.

This horror novella is a very tense, fast-paced and atmospheric read.

It's ideal as a quick bedtime read and it's essential winter reading if you're into reading books with snow in them during the winter.

It was an entertaining little read but I feel like the author should have taken his time and given us more substance.

I received an advance copy, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

This is the third Aeon of Chaos book and an excellent third instalment at that.

I enjoy reading these books, they're so well written and the worldbuilding is incredible.

The books aren't connected story-wise, they're all different but remain ultra-violent with added smut.

The only way to describe it is extreme Dark Fantasy.

Lots of fun!

This is from an American point of view, so some of the things in here weren't relevant to me.

There wasn't much to be learned here either for me as I've read most of the things in other books.

When I bought this book, I knew nothing about it, I bought it because of the title.

After buying it though, I quickly found out that it was first printed in 1905, so it's severely outdated and only some of it was transferable.

This is early Dredd, like the first year of publication.

It's composed of short stories each of which provides a bland introduction to Dredd and his world.

The stories were pretty lame, the characterization two-dimensional and the dialogue...meh!

The artwork is black and white, I certainly don't dig that as much as the colour comic books.

Worth getting though if you want the complete set.

An excellent follow-up book to Necroscope #1.

It's a slow burner for the first 200 pages, which follows the historical adventures of the Wamphyri introduced in the first book.

It's less focused on Harry Keogh and we explore other characters with Harry in the background with good reason.

This one is so much darker and gorier than the previous book.

This is a well-thought-out book about everything you need to know not just about building the perfect fire, but how to split logs and store your wood, and everything else to help guide you to becoming all-knowing on how to keep yourself warm and cosy, and your wood burning as it should in your wood stove, fireplace or campfire.

It's also got plenty of photographs and illustrations to direct you and teach you different methods of fire building.

This is a practical book full of urban homestead projects and an inspiration for us city dwellers.

It's well written with lots of diagrams and it's such an easy read in general due to the layout.

I've been reading these types of books for many years now and there's always something new to learn in each book, so this was worthwhile.

It's always good to brush up on your knowledge anyway and this particular book was fun.

I've never read any Bukowski that I've not enjoyed, he's such a brilliant writer that's so descriptive, he's able to take you back to a different era.

He's so vulgar sometimes also which can be difficult for people to digest. He writes what we all are pretty much thinking but just to afraid to say it.

Every time I read something by him he gets me laughing.

Great irreverent writing.

This story is about a character called America Jara, it's not told from the viewpoint of Dredd, which was unorthodox because it's different from all of the Dredd that I've read and I was left slightly disappointed because of that.

There was another three short stories thrown in that wasn't connected to America, which redeemed it somewhat.

I'm still going to continue with the next installment.

These are wonderful stories that transport you back to London in the 1800s.

The writing style flows so well and it doesn't take long to finish one of the stories, so you can read one and put it down, then go back to it.

I've not seen this movie in such a long time so reading this book brought back a lot of memories.

Is it worth the read? Yes, absolutely because you get to know the characters more, through their thoughts and feelings.

I didn't realise that the alien was a 10 million year old intergalactic botanist! 😍

The setting of this story was very unique, with ash-covered cities, a red sun and the mist. I also thought Allomancy was a very interesting take on magic. I loved the characters, the crew and Kelsier (especially Kelsier).

The heroine Vin very loveable despite being the typical ‘starts off weak but learns she is special‘ kind of character and it was enjoyable to see her develop throughout the story.

Some parts were good but mostly it was a slog.

RaeLovesToRead Aww man. I had high hopes for this series. I'm not really loving the Stormlight Archive - it's a bit waffly, long winded and the plot is a huge tangle - but I was hoping Mistborn would be better! 😖😟 3mo

This here book is my 64th book of his and the very first I've DNF'd, I just cannot get into it.

It wouldn't surprise me if someone told me this was written during his cocaine years because there's a fair bit of rambling and filler, like The Langoliers for example, I felt there was so much irrelevant backstory to the characters etc.

I'm just going to throw a moderate rating on it.

This was a straight to the point book that delves into the meaning and significance of different tattoo symbols and their origin etc.

The tattoos it covers is the typical boring and old-fashioned ones you normally see on the walls of the tattoo shop, it was still an interesting read and it's all beautifully illustrated.

It's all very well written and laid out, it was an easy read.

It's a read-oncer, makes for a cool coffee table book though.

I almost never continued reading this one because the opening chapter was just so brutal.

The author takes her time creating decent characters and that's what I liked most, even for a short novel she's able to do that.

It's a dark little novel with supernatural elements.

I think if the author keeps up with clever writing like this, she'll go far because me, as a reader, I found it a whole bunch of fun and she's gained a fan!
