Favourite Review.

Kat @ KBbookreviews – Book Review: The Unbroken (Magic Of The Lost #1), by C.L. Clark

Kats’s review for The Unbroken is incredibly detailed, split into different sections highlighting the characters, writing style, plot etc she really gives you all you need to know to find out if this is the book for you… I’m sure I’ll be shocking no one when I say I instantly added it to my TBR.

“Overall, the story/plot/magic is all fantastic and so well constructed, the themes are perfectly explored both broadly and in a more individualised way, the narratives perfectly compliment each other, the scope is perfect and allows for tension and suspense and the magic is woven into the story perfectly. “

Favourite Tag/Meme

Hundreds & Thousands of Books – THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY BOOK TAG

I’m a huge fan of the Umbrella Academy & this tag looks like it would be so much fun to do. Between all the gif’s and book recs I had a lot of fun reading this post!

Favourite General Bookish

Stephen @ Stephen Writes – Discussion – To What Extent Should We Compare Books?

Stephen is an amazing blogger & such a supportive member of the community. He writes some amazing discussion posts and his latest on ‘to what extent should we compare books’ is no different. He splits it down to comparing books within a genre, with similar plots & by the same author, and brings up some really interesting points on how we compare and whether we should.

My own thoughts on the question of setting benchmarks for a certain genre – and I say this as someone who is absolutely not a mood reader – is that I believe each story should be judged on its own merits. After all, while authors may take some inspiration from other books, they ultimately set out to write with their own ideas and techniques.
