Bill Hodges Trilogy

Since my latest aim of trying to read all (or at least as many) Stephen King books, I have managed to discover what is probably one of my new favourite book series. The Bill Hodges Trilogy, featuring the books Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers and End Of Watch is a series that gripped me from page one... Continue Reading →

End Of Watch

After the very messed up order of reading the Bill Hodges trilogy, I have finally read the third book of the series, End Of Watch, and I am o b s e s s e d. I want to say before anyone goes any further, if you haven't read either Mr. Mercedes or Finders Keepers,... Continue Reading →

Mr. Mercedes

At the beginning of May (although that felt like years ago rather than months), I wrote a blog post about Finders Keepers*, the second book in a trilogy. Well, today, I am happy to say I have finally read Mr. Mercedes, the first one! (No, I didn't mean to read them out of order). *You... Continue Reading →

11.22.63 (And A History Lesson)

I'm very very very slowly ploughing my way through my Stephen King list, finally ticking 11.22.63 off as my most recent conquer!  Life can turn on a dime—or stumble into the extraordinary, as it does for Jake Epping, a high school English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine. While grading essays by his GED students, Jake... Continue Reading →

Percy Jackson And The Lighting Thief

Since Rick Riordan and Disney Plus are gifting us with a brand new and amazing TV show at some point in the future, I decided now was the perfect time to give the Percy Jackson series another read, starting promptly with Percy Jackson and the Lighting Thief.  Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he...

Finders Keepers

What? Another Stephen King book? That's right. Apparently all I'm in the mood for lately is the dark and scary books, and luckily due to my growing collection, I have a fair few to march my way through at the moment. I'm pretty sure I said at the beginning of the year I was planning... Continue Reading →

The Institute

GETTING BACK AT IT WITH THOSE STEPHEN KING BOOKS Y'ALL!  I finally read Stephen King's new book, The Institute and my L O R D I had a blast. Well, I say I had a blast. I was stressed. Very stressed. But it was GOOOD.  In the middle of the night, in a house on... Continue Reading →

Brave New World

Okay. OKAY. So, I read Brave New World, and this is a book I probably never would have read outside of my University course, but oh my gosh, it was really really good.  Largely set in a futuristic World State, whose citizens are environmentally engineered into an intelligence-based social hierarchy, the novel anticipates huge scientific advancements...

The Time Machine

Back in June, I read H. G. Wells' The Island of Doctor Moreau, a book which I'd wanted to read for a while and found myself really really enjoying (even if it was confusing and creepy and weird). And for one of my university units, I had to read H. G. Wells' The Time Machine.... Continue Reading →
