Hello my lovely followers! And welcome if you’re new to my blog😊
I thought I’d jump on here quickly and share a review of a short story I’ve just finished (it only took me about 20 mins to read) called The Balkan Escape.
It was one of the free kindle books they do and I was looking for something “scary”.
On the whole I’d give it 2 out of 5.
Whilst I felt the story didn’t really have a clear direction, or any direction at all really, it did have a lot of potential.
If anyone has a kindle or has read on one before you’ll know it has the little percentage bar at the bottom that tells you how much of the book you’ve read? The book ended at 70% so there could be loads of unnecessary spiel🙄 which gives you an idea!!
It had potential to be great, there was a lot of good ideas in the book, the archeological aspect, the idea that the Russian’s were mining things under a guise… but it just wasn’t long enough to factor all those things in which is why it lacked direction, it never really got going or expanded on much.
My rating is 5/10 and even that is being generous!
Have a read and then let me know what you think in the comments below.
Hello my lovely followers and welcome to you if you’re new to my blog!
I’ve just finished reading (what I would say is a short story) called Mirror Mirror, it was a free kindle book that I found when I searched for horror books.
Overall rating – 1/5. I like to be scared when I read or watch something horror and it just fell flat.
The story itself could have been made much longer if the author was to actually expand on the backstory, alas he didn’t.
It just was not an enjoyable read, even when I didn’t pay for it!
On the whole, Mirror Mirror was pretty rubbish, it failed to scare me, it didn’t make me want to carry on reading and it left a few unanswered questions. A disappointment all round.
Until next time,
I’m just looking through my bookshelf and I’m getting pretty close to the end of my to-read list, I mean, I literally have 6 fiction books left and 3 none fiction (but I can pick these up whenever they’re just for general learning).
Which means, I need some ideas of what to read next… A bit of background, I’m happy to scour charity shops, book stores, I have a library card and I have a kindle so PRETTY PLEASE HIT ME WITH UR SUGGESTIONS FOR BOOKS!!!
I’m thinking the few fiction books I have to read are not going to last me the year so I need some ideas and inspiration. I’m happy to give anything a read once, so hit me with your ideas.
Thanks so much! Xx
