Murder / Mystery Series – Stephen Griffiths – Sensitive content – not suitable to children.

Griffiths, 40. Arrested after committing murder 3 times.

Griffiths was studying a PhD in criminology at Bradford university, when he was arrested for the murder of Susan Rushworth, Shelley Armitage and Suzanne Blamires, all bizarrely with their first name beginning with the letter ‘S’.

Griffiths was a man whom studied the work of prior criminal Valentine, to which he got his ‘inspiration’ to go on a vile killing spree. Griffiths proceeded to brag about his crimes on a website before killing his victims. His crimes were so brutal all females were reported to be dismantled in his bath, after he had knocked Suzanne unconscious.

Griffiths even went as far to have skinned his victims, and consumed them afterwards. a lot of his brutal attacks were caught on CCTV outside his flat.

The remains of Rushworth were never found.

luckily Griffiths was charged with the murder of all three women, and sentenced to life imprisonment, which a whole life order.

3 Brand new series.. coming soon.

Hey guys!

I’m feeling so guilty. I promised to be uploading again regularly, but evidently I have neglected both my blogs for some time. I’ve recently had a eureka moment, and decided I’m going to force myself to make sure I put 100% time and efforts back into my blogs.

This means I have got 3 new series coming which include –

  • What about Law series – As I am I law student I thought I’d create a series about my second passion along side reading books (going into the right profession). This series will include, crazy laws in the UK and neighbouring countries, new laws, random law facts, and some opinionated law pieces. I’ll hopefully be talking about news relation and current affairs also.
  • Murder/Mystery series – This will include the most notorious killers, and pieces on unsolved murders and crimes, which could be really interesting for me as well as you, going along and finding out theories, and case facts.
  • How and Why series – As I’m a serious Procrastinator I often bombard my brain with hypothetical scenarios and how and why questions, which I can go into a lot of depth with. Some will be controversial topics, whilst others will be just general why and how life questions.

I am hopefully looking to start these next week.

Happy reading 🙂

Miss Peregrine’s Home for peculiar Children: REVIEW

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 🙂

 

 

Gone girl: Review

Author: Gillian Flynn
Goodreads link
Amazon link

I read this book a few months ago, and never got round to reviewing it! I don’t know why as I LOVED it.

How Gillian wrote Amy to be such a master mind was brilliant, the whole book just proves what women can do when they think and plan.

*Spoiler*
The clues Amy left Ben inside the hiden places was such a great trick, especially to start with as he thought she was portraying her love to him! As the story progressed we learnt that they were actually little digs at Ben, for his affair and attitude.

The first half of the book was a drag, all until part 2 I was thinking is this going anywhere. Luckily as I was about to put the book down, the pace picked up!
Quickly it escalated into something magical.

It definitely left me thinking about a womans ability to plan, plot and attack! If we all put our minds to it; were capable of anything!

I rate this book 4 stars; and if you haven’t already, Go read it!

Happy reading 🙂

GIRL ON THE TRAIN REVIEW.

Author: Paula Hawkins
Genre: Thriller

I originally reviewed this book for reviewleaf.

Amazon link
Goodreads link

I listened to this book via audio, I’m not sure if that ruined the experience, but I really didn’t enjoy it.

Unfortunately I guessed the killer a quater of the way through, so I was just waiting to the reveal. The premise of the book was brilliant, how it was constructed, and how the main character got involved with the others. Either way it was very predictable.

I rate the book 3 stars. I would recommed to those new to the thriller genre.

Happy reading 🙂

P.s Sorry I’ve been away so long 🙂

Night film: Review

Author: Marisha Pessl
Amazon link
Goodreads link

I was so excited to get my hands on this books, but unfortunately I didn’t enjoy it at all. The images through out were a great added bonus; especially the app that goes with it, but that’s about it.

The whole story built up to nothing, and I think the book could have been over half the size and you’d still get the same effect. You were led to believe someone was murdered and there would be a great plot twist…. there wasn’t.

I would rate this book 3 stars, and sadly wouldn’t recommend it. 
I’d like to know your thoughts and weather you got on with the book more than me.

Happy reading 🙂

Ivy Smoak : The Hunted interview : part 2

I got the chance to interview the author of The Hunted-Temptation, Ivy Smoak. So sit back and enjoy!

Part 1available

1) What/who inspired you to write The Hunted? 

I had an affair with a professor, of course!  No, not really.  But I’ve always found the idea exciting.  It was actually my fiancé that encouraged me to try writing erotica.  And when he quizzed me on what my fantasies were, I had a hard time giving him answers.  The only thing I could really think of was that I’ve had crushes on some of my teachers.  So I ran with the idea.  And I channeled the university I attended for the background of the story.  Everything just fell in place, and I couldn’t be happier with the result.       

2) Do you have any strange writing habits?

I definitely have a few.  The main thing I can think of is that I can only write on the couch.  I have an unused, lonely office chair.  If I’m anywhere else, all I can think about is how uncomfortable I am.  Music also has to be playing while I’m writing.  My most recent playlist definitely had a strong role in the development of Penny and Professor Hunter’s relationship.

3) What advice would you give to aspiring writers? 

Start writing!  Come up with an idea and go with it.  You’ll be surprised by your own imagination.  It’s such a creative process, and so fun once you get into it.           
                          
4) What are four interesting facts about yourself?

1.  I’m a ginger, but I also have a soul.
2.  I can write about 10,000 words a week when I’m not distracted by other annoying, superfluous crap like my primary source of income.
3. I didn’t find Fifty Shades of Grey (the movie) sexy.  #NotMyChristian
4.  I’m surprisingly good at predicting the outcome of European football matches based on the team colors, however, my success rate pales in comparison to Paul the Octopus.

5) Why do you think girls drift their imaginations to having affairs or secret relationships with professors or teachers?                  

Everyone’s had that one sexy teacher that they can’t help but daydream about in class.  It’s such a forbidden dynamic.  We want what we can’t have.  It’s taboo and it’s dangerous, which makes it that much sexier.              
                                                    
6) If you could be the author of a popular book, what would it be and why?

The Hunted, because that would mean that my book was popular!

7) When you’re not writing, what do you spend your time doing?

Mainly snuggling and eating Ben and Jerry’s ice-cream while watching episodes of The Mindy Project, New Girl, Shark Tank, The Bachelor, Castle, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Game of Thrones, and tons of other shows.  And I also own an ecommerce business, but let’s be honest, I’m usually writing erotica or watching TV.

8) When you’re suffering with writers block, how do you overcome it?
I skip to a different part of the book that I’m more excited to write.  Often times I’ll find that the reason I had writers block was because the part I was working on wasn’t actually necessary to the story and is better off being left out.  A good example is that I got writers block while trying to answer Question 4, so I jumped down and answered this question instead.

9) It must have taken some courage to begin erotic stories, and especially making them effective. What helped you along this process?  

When I started writing fiction a few years ago, I found myself holding back in scenes.  A kiss and a closed door wasn’t enough.  I wanted the reader to be able to experience what was happening in my imagination.  But I was definitely hesitant to write erotica at first.  If I was going to do it, I wanted it to be effective.  So before I started writing The Hunted, I read an inappropriate amount of erotica for motivation and research in the genre.  And my fiancé has been very encouraging.  I’m not sure what his real motivations are…

10) What are your plans for the future?

I just finished Part 3 of The Hunted (available April 1st) and I’m in the middle of writing two more series.  I have one pretty solid idea for another, and then I also have a 20 page word document filled with sexy situations that could be turned into books.  It’s a lot like Miles Finch’s notebook from Elf, only it’s filled with stories about whips and chains rather than personified carrots and tomatoes.

11) Have you learned anything about yourself when writing The Hunted?

I’ve learned that I’m a lot kinkier than I thought.  Who knew I had such a dirty mind?  A few years ago my fiancé asked me what my fantasies were and I said that I didn’t have any, which at the time I thought was the truth.  Then I started writing The Hunted and found out that I actually have quite a few fantasies.  I would give an example, but you’ll just have to read The Hunted to find out what they are.

Happy reading 🙂

The Girl on the Train:review

image

The Girl on the Train is a new psychological thriller, written in 3 different pov’s (point of view), that will forever change the way you look at other people’s lives.

Author: Paula hawkins
Average rating: 3.95

The Girl on the Train was the first audio book I’ve listened to, with over 10 hours reading time. I didn’t love it, neither would I compare it to “Before I go to sleep”, I haven’t read Gone Girl yet but I will be soon!

I knew who killed megan from the start, but that didn’t change my reading experience! I hoped for the ending to be a little better, but I felt that it was a little rushed and that the build up throughout the book was pointless. I expected a little more “wow” factor but it didn’t do it for me.

It was a good book and I didn’t find it boring, but it didn’t blow me away either. I would recommend it to people who like easy and simple reads, especially those new to this genre or not much of a reader.

I’ve given the book 🌟🌟🌟 3 gold stars, as it could have been a little more fast paced, and the ending alot more complex as it was quite mediocore.
