Jet hasn't done his homework or has he? When he hands his homework into his teacher and the page is empty he's surprised and has to explain its not his fault the letters won't stay on the page.

This book is a child's book aimed at children aged 3-6years. I think children of this age will love this book, with beautiful illustrations and a funny and interesting story. 

A great book to get kids into reading and I cannot wait to read it to my niece and nephew, I know they'll love it.

Thank You to the author for providing me with an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This story follows K, a young porn star addict who dreams of becoming a writer. One evening while masturbating he finds himself transported to a parallel world where all his sexual preferences and perversions come true. This comes at a cost though. 

This book is not my usual type of book, but I was contacted by the author requesting a review so I gave it ago, always open to trying new things. 
Unfortunately, this book was not for me. I just couldn't get on with it. 

It was too erotic for me, don't get me wrong we all enjoy a bit of a sexy romance in our novels but this one was a bit too explicit for my liking...

Unfortunately, I was unable to finish this book and therefore I am unable to give it a full review. 

Thank You to the author for providing me with an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

11 Missed Calls by Elizabeth Carpenter

11 Missed Calls by Elizabeth Carpenter 

Title: 11 Missed Calls
Author: Elizabeth Carpenter
First Published: July '18
Publisher: Avon
Genre: #Psychological Thriller #Police Procedural #Womens Fiction
Pages: 384 
Price on Amazon: Paperback £6.13 Kindle: £2.99
ISBN: 0008223548

Anna was always told and therefore always believed her mother Debbie died on the night she disappeared, thirty years ago. But when her father receives a note from a stranger everything Anna thought she knew was brought into question. Anna tries to turn to her husband for advice but after finding a letter from another woman she realises she can't rely on anyone to tell her the truth. 

Is Debbie still alive? What secrets are her family hiding?

I was looking forward to reading this book as I have previously read 99 Red Balloons by Elizabeth Carpenter and really enjoyed it. 

I was not disappointed. I really enjoyed this book too. The story is told from the perspective of the different character, keeping the pace fast and the plot interesting. 

We see the story from Debbies point of view and we see how she is suffering from mental health issues, which keeps you on your toes trying to decipher what is real and what is part of her illness. 

We also see from Anna's point of view and you get to feel all the agony and the struggles she is going through. 

This book has really good characterization and is fantastically written. The book goes into so much wonderful detail, really making you part of the story and linking you to the characters. 

Fantastically written with amazing plot twists you don't see coming, keeps you needing to read on and keeps you totally hooked. I cannot wait to see what Carpenter comes out with next. 

Thank You to Netgalley for providing me with an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is the fifth book in the Quincy and Rainie series by Lisa Gardner. It's a terrible night, the rain is pouring down and its 2 am when a call comes in about an abandoned car, lights on, engine running, doors wide open but the driver is nowhere to be seen. The driver turns out to be Rainie. When Quincy receives the news Rainie is missing, he phones his daughter Kimberly and her partner for help to track her down. 

As the guilt mounts about being estranged from his wife, Quincy has the hunt of his life ahead of him to find Rainie. 

I really enjoyed this book, it was great to have Kimberly and her partner in the book too. This book kept you on the edge of your seat, desperate to know if Rainie is okay and if Quincy and Kimberly can find her in time. 

Wonderfully written, very suspenseful and gripping, keeping you hooked throughout the book. The pace helps build the suspense up. With an easy to follow and a great plot. 
Overall a really interesting and fun read.

With the help of a selected few, Oz and his team race to warn the world before its too late, but can they solve the problem and fix the ever-changing animal population before its too late? 

As many of you may know this book was turned into a TV show, which was very good and in most parts true to the book. The book, however, as in most cases was so much better. 

Just the concept of the plot from is so different from anything else I've read making it even more interesting. Of course with an amazing author like Patterson doing the writing the book was excellently written and gripping and I couldn't put it down. 

This book is so good I own the Kindle edition, a paperback version, the audiobook and I have the complete TV series too. 

The characters really add to the story, giving it real depth and helping to keep the reader hooked. I found the characters to be really likeable and realistic and overall very well written. 

The pace of the book kept, you reading on and needing to know more, so much so I just couldn't put it down. The plot was captivating, easy to follow and really enjoyable. 

A fantastic read, I would recommend to anyone looking for something different.

It all starts with three best friends, they live in a small village called Hawkins Hollow.

I read this series in my teens and loved it, it has become one of my go-to series when I want something brilliant and exciting to read. It never gets boring no matter how many times I read it. 

I love the story of friendship and love that is constant throughout the book but is constantly developing throughout the story. Each character has their own role and plays their own important part in the story, The characters are wonderfully written. 

The storyline is exciting and keeps you gripped throughout. Well written and has an easy to follow flow and a pace that builds you up right from the beginning right to the end. 

All in all a fantastic book and I would certainly recommend to anyone looking for their next amazing fantasy read.
