miss-peregrines-home-for-peculiar-children

Author : Ransom Riggs

Pages :384

Rating : 10/10

I read this book a loooonnnng time ago, but only just got around to reviewing it. its quite fitting as the film is due out in the cinemas soon, which I’m so excited about!

The book itself has a great warmth to it, and is really interesting to read. The characters each take on a life of their own and develop continuously throughout. The storyline which includes Jacob shows how family secrets can effect someone’s life, but also in the long run make it better and filled with excitement!

There was never a dull moment in the book, I had to slow down the reading as I loved it that much and didn’t want it to end. The idea and creation of the book was perfect, and couldn’t recommend it enough! also everyone needs to go see the film and read the book; to witness something truly magical!

happy reading 🙂

 

 

University update!

Yikes! what a few Month it has been! I got my A-level results, which were 10X better than I anticipated and I got into university!!!! since I found out I’ve been shopping, shopping and shopping.

I’m moving out which means I have to buy everything from scratch, so its given me little time to plan and write blogs, or get my Room94 blog started fully. from the 13th of September regular updates to Inspiredbyabook will be made, from movie, book and general reviews to discussion topics.

updates to Room94 will be less regular, as I am re-launching due to been unable to commit 100% to it.

I’d appreciate if my fellow followers, could go follow room94site, in preparation for re-launch, as that will have beauty, fashion and food content.

I look forward to 100% starting back up both blogs, including the Instagram page from the 12th.

happy reading.

IM BACK!!

After announcing I’m having a month off, it lasted longer than I thought. The exams really drained me, so I took a little longer away.

Don’t worry I’ve being working on ideas for my blog and I’ve come up with some new segments to include weekly.

I’ve got a HUGE haul coming up, reviews and something unusual.

Even though I’ve only read 5 books (which killed me), I’ll soon catch up! So if you regularly follow my blog, keep your eyes peeled for new posts.

Happy reading 🙂 it’s good to be back!

Girl online review.

image

Girl online is a drama/contemporary/romance, Novel written by Zoe sugg and her ghost writer siobhan curham.

Overview
Girl online, is hiding behind a identity to express her personal feelings to the world, when she goes to New York this changes as she meets Noah who she knows nothing about, Noah is also hiding a secret, that threatens Pennys identity.

My first feelings on this novel is that it was a little childish, and I’d aim it to teenagers around the age of 13/14. Even though I aim it at a younger audience, it doesn’t mean I didn’t like it! Infact I loved it once I got around a quater in.

All in all it took me around 4 hours to read, once I started it was a constant page turner, such a easy and quick  read! How the events folder out, kept me in suspense to see the outcome, also the personality of the character shone through, especially Elliots.

I’d rate it 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5 gold stars, based on the fact, it’s the first book in a while that I just couldn’t put down!
Please,please,please go check it out! Feel free to express your feelings on the book in the comments.

Happy reading 🙂

Geralds game: Review

image

Geralds Game is a mystery/thriller. Written by Stephen King in (1992)

The story is based on a girl called jesse who ends up in trouble, when her husband takes her to a weekend retreat.

Spoilers:
Jesse is with her husband handcuffed to a bed, and her husband tries to take advantage of her, so she reacts and kicks him ‘where it hurts’, resulting in her killing him. This take the worse turn, and she’s in a fight for survival.

I didn’t like this book one little bit, I went in with high expectations and came out with extreemly low expectations. I couldn’t find the will to finish the book, this was because Stephen spent a whole 14 pages with jesse trying to get a glass of water, which wasn’t neaded, the story would have been alot better if less pre-modification was used. I didn’t find the attraction, and don’t intend to pick it up again in the future.

I’m giving this 1 silver star ⭐, As I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone who asks, because I found it too un-enjoyable.

Ed sheerans visual journey.

Ed sheerans visual journey was on my wish list for so long, and when my mum bought me the book for christmas I was over the moon!

Ed, teamed up with a fantasic artist called phillip butah, who’s work you see through out, who’s is also Ed’s childhood friend.

The book helps you connect in a personal way with Ed, because you follow him through his journey to getting to the point where he is today, which didn’t come easy for him! It gives you a great opportunity to learn more about where he came from, and to never give up on your dreams.

I’d rate this book 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟5 gold stars, based on I never read biography/autobiography’s, especially when they’re celebrities, but this book changed my mind completely. It’s a quick and fun read, so go out and buy it! You won’t regret it 🙂

Happy reading🙂

My first guest post!

I was so honoured when Kevin Morris asked me to do a guest post for ‘newauthoronline’; I jumped at the chance of getting the name ‘inspiredbyabook’ out there, giving it the opportunity to reach a wider audience, and hopefully get me the recognition I’ve always hoped for.

I chose to write a piece on why I started my blog, in hope for it to give other people the confidence to follow their dreams and if they’re wanting to, start their own blog.

Firstly at 17 I never had the idea of wanting to start my own blog, until one day I was in a English lesson and me and my friend were joking about starting blogs, which at that point I realised  ‘’oh I’d quite like to have a go on that and see how it goes’’. When I got home that night I created a new email account ‘bookreviewss@hotmail.com’, and asked my mum and dad what their opinions were, both was up for me doing it but they didn’t think I’d last at it! How wrong were they? I made the decision to use a cover name, instead of my own because I didn’t have the confidence for all my friends knowing I was starting blog. I wanted it to be a personal experience ‘my own little world’’

I’ve always loved reading, so I put two and two together and created an instagram about books, originally it was called ‘review_that_book’, but eventually I felt this didn’t represent me as a person, or been able to post a wide variety of things on my instagram. Eventually this lead to the birth of ‘inspiredbyabook’, and new found ideas of creating my own website! Which I did less than a month ago, and already I’ve got 500+ followers which mean the world to me!

With the new name and website, I finally could share something I’m passionate about and thoroughly enjoy! Having a website helped me reach a wider audience and share my own thoughts and opinions, instead of writing a thousand mile long explanation on instagram! Sharing my opinion is how I got the opportunity to write this guest post, because Kevin liked ‘eBooks or paperback’ which expresses my opinion very well. I’m defiantly hoping to achieve my dreams from doing this, and my main goal is to get in contact with some publishers, and start requesting and receiving ARC copies of books to review! I refuse to stop, until I’ve got where I want to be.

Finally I’d just like to say, if any of you have dreams but are afraid, no matter what age you are, just go out and grab them! There is no one there stopping you, and you have full control! In the end you will be so proud of yourself, every struggle, down days or when you feel like giving up only make you stronger, and so keep at it! At 17, I’ve achieved so far in the space of around 3 month, more than i could have ever dreamed, if I can do it, around college and work life you can to!  

Happy reading 🙂

The suspect complete review.

I was sent “The suspect complete by Kevin Morris for a truthful and honest review, which as always will be given.

This collection of short stories brought out mixed feelings and thoughts, first off I loved “The suspect” singular, the end was unexpected to me and was very fun to read, it’s also always a genre I’m interested in. The short story I wasn’t too sure about was “The Condemned Man” I didn’t seem to understand the ending.

“The database” was really fun for me because I’m studying law and a lot on the content was linked to law and it’s semantics, As I started working through towards the last few stories I picked up on young writing for some reason (age wise) a lot was informal and quite fun because being young myself I could relate. Another thing I picked up on was someone who was studying psychology or sociology with terms used, and found it very interesting seeing them put into content.

“Shoes” I also loved because it reminded me of maniac the film,

I’d rate the whole collection 4 stars ⭐️❄️⭐️❄️, 2 silver and 2 gold! This collection has definitely restored my faith in short stories, and made me more appreciative of them. I would also read more of Kevin’s work!

Thanks for the short stories Kevin, I really enjoyed them-!

Happy reading
