Hi and welcome to January’s first review post!! I thought I’d start this month with a series of books I had read some time ago. These stories had me gripped from the beginning and rekindled my interest in Science Fiction as a genre. Not that it had died away, just gone into hibernation for a decade or two. So if you enjoy, blended tales of fantasy and sci fi, read on.Continue reading “A supernatural infused SciFi series”

Hi all, this week I have a slightly different book reviewed. It’s still in line with the theme of horror but is set in Victorian times, so has a bit of an historical flavour to it.

It all started while I was waiting for a bus one winter evening, reading the first few chapters of ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone. I had started Chapter 4 when my bus came.

I was hooked. Needless to say, I devoured the whole series in due course.

Harry Potter was the first of many. Discovering Rick Riordan’s series of books recently has been a blast.
