Two Ticks Tuesday; More Than We Can Tell

Brigid Kemmerer
Rev Fletcher is battling the demons of his past. But with loving adoptive parents by his side, he’s managed to keep them at bay…until he gets a letter from his abusive father and the trauma of his childhood comes hurtling back.
Emma Blue spends her time perfecting the computer game she built from scratch, rather than facing her parents’ crumbling marriage. She can solve any problem with the right code, but when an online troll’s harassment escalates, she’s truly afraid.
When Rev and Emma meet, they both long to lift the burden of their secrets and bond instantly over their shared turmoil. But when their situations turn dangerous, their trust in each other will be tested in ways they never expected. This must-read story will once again have readers falling for Brigid Kemmerer’s emotional storytelling.

There are not enough words to describe how much I truly love Brigid Kemmerer’s books and this one was even better than the last – as if that was possible! Brigid has strong characters that she truly makes you feel. Empathy isn’t a strong enough word for the emotions she invokes in you. Her theme’s are always deep, sometimes dark but also end with hope and a light for the future. Highly recommend!

Witch Wars Review and Author Interview

Sibeal Pounder and Laura Ellen Anderson (illustrator)
WitchWarsCoverFINALWhen Fran the Fabulous Fairy turns up in Tiga Whicabim’s shed to tell her she’s a witch, Tiga doesn’t believe her. Or at least not until Fran points out that TIGA WHICABIM is actually an anagram of I AM A BIG WITCH and magics her away down the drainpipes to compete in Witch Wars – the competition to crown the next Top Witch of Ritzy City.
Filled with silly spells, delectable dresses, ridiculous riddles and a serious shoe problem, Witch Wars is a witch story like no other. Although if you enjoyed The Worst Witch or Witchworld, you’ll love this too

Move aside Hermione Granger! Tiga’s in town…

I was pleasantly surprised by Witch Wars. Despite its menacing title, this was a cheery, funny and light hearted book.

Life as she knows it, is literally going down the drain for Tiga, when out of the blue… well purple fairy dust an extravagant fairy named Fran (or Fran the Fabulous Fairy as she would prefer to be known) appears out of nowhere, to reveal to Tiga a world of magic more commonly known as Ritzy City. Approximately one day before the start of Witch Wars Tiga arrives in an unreal land of good and bad where she picks up many a friend and has a shot at winning witch wars. With nine competitors, all wanting the coveted prize: to rule Ritzy City and beyond, the stakes were high.
With some evil, some good and some plain dumb contestants the competition was hotter than ever but who would win…

Witch Wars has been by far the best book I’ve read this year! Full of action, humour and epicness this book was awesome. The chapters are nice and short and are perfect for flicking in and out of.It is very fast paced and never leaves you bored. Consequently, some of the events aren’t explained as fully as I’d like.

Over all this is an amazing book and I’d recommend it to anyone who likes Harry Potter from 8+ (and feels like a good read.)

Verdict: I’m already looking forward to Witch Switch out later this year!

As a special treat Sibeal has kindly answered some of Izzy’s pressing questions.

Where did your inspiration for Ritzy City come from?

I loved witches when I was little, Izzy! And also I had a bit of a weird obsession with sink pipes. I would say things like, ‘We just don’t know what’s down there!’, even though everyone assured me we definitely did.

I always worried it was something terrible, but after reading Alice in Wonderland when I was about eight, I realised it was almost definitely a world. And maybe it had witches in it. I imagined a bossy little fairy shooting out of the sink, pinching my nose and shouting ‘FINALLY! I knew you would figure it out EVENTUALLY.’

Over the years, Fran (as I later named her) stuck with me – all through school and until I was a wrinkly older human and I started writing snippets of it down, for fun, and began linking the witches to the pipes. Things like, witches hats are only pointy in our world because they’re sucked up the pipes – down in Sinkville they’re flat.

Do you base any of your characters around people you know?

I tend not to because if you base a character on someone (especially someone alive) and then you want the character to do something horrible, it makes it difficult to write it without thinking, Oh no, I hope the person won’t mind me writing this bit about them being DISGUSTING… But, I did name Peggy after my gran and Mrs Clutterbuck is based on a woman called Mrs Maypother, who owned the newsagents in Sandymount, Dublin (she gave me free chocolate, Izzy. She was the best). And Felicity Bat and the way she treats Peggy is based on when I was bullied at school. Luckily the girls who bullied me couldn’t levitate!

Would you say it’s hard to write a book about witchs after the bestseller Harry Potter?

Good question! Yes and no. Yes in terms of making it unique (see next question), but no in the sense that JK Rowling has done wonders for books! Kids love fantasy books more than ever now, and so many kids get into reading because of her. So really, if anything, it’s easier to write a book – even a book about witches – because of JK Rowling and Harry.

If so, do you think it’s hard to not pinch ideas from J.K Rowling?

It can be hard! If you create your own world, like Witch Wars’ Sinkville, it helps because you determine the terrain and can make it very different to somewhere like Hogwarts and Rowling’s amazing wizarding world.

Luckily, my witches are more flamboyant and mad and many of them are caricatures, so that means the content is a lot more of a farce and doesn’t have much crossover with Harry Potter in that sense.
Where I do put in similar references, I love to play around with the fact it’s a pinched idea and make that the joke. For example, a really common construct in kids stories is to have an other-world being meet the kid in the story and take them to a magical world – think of Peter Pan, Tinkerbell and Wendy, the rabbit and Alice in Alice in Wonderland, and Hagrid in Harry Potter. In the opening scene of Witch Wars, Fran (the Fabulous Fairy) meets Tiga and tells her she’s a witch, exactly like, “You’re a wizard Harry.” But in Tiga’s case, when she doesn’t believe her, Fran points out that when you jumble up the letters in Tiga’s name it spells I AM A BIG WITCH. She can’t argue with that. So it’s taking a familiar set-up and messing with it to make a joke.

There’s also some blatant pinching from Mary Poppins – like when Patricia the Producer comes sailing into the scene, flying with an umbrella and Fran says “She saw it in a film once and now it’s the only way she’ll travel.” And Patricia sings “SUPERCALAFRAGI-“ before crash landing. I try to always overtly reference stuff like that rather than being like, “so…this is my character Garry Rotter, he has a star on his head and a crow called Redfig. His nemesis is Mouldersnort…”

Drawing With Light

Julia Green
drawing with lightKat and Emily have grown up without their mother for almost as long as they can remember. And now Dad is with Cassy and they all muddle along together well enough – even though they are living in a cramped caravan while their new house is being renovated. Then Cassy and Dad tell them that Cassy is pregnant, and everything seems to shift. Emily feels a new urge to find her own mother. How could she have left them the way she did? Never writing to them? Not communicating with them? And as Emily begins her search, not knowing what she will find, she is at the same time embarking on a new relationship of her own, that of her romance with Seb. This is an evocative and finely drawn novel about family relationships, in particular that of mother and daughter, and the shifting emotions of a teenager trying to make sense of her family and her world.

What were your initial thoughts on the book?
Having read Bringing the Summer by Julie Green and quite enjoying it, I decided that I would give another of her books a try so when I saw Drawing the Light in audiobook format at the library, I instantly took it out. The story is very easy to get into and I found it to be quite interesting and entertaining. The narrator, Julia Green herself, had a very melodic voice that was easy to listen to and helped to make the story more enjoyable.

What was your favourite aspect?
One of my favourite things, by far, about this book was the beautiful, almost lyrical, writing. Julia Green depicted moments and scenes in her book very well and made it really easy to both picture and feel. There was such an atmosphere to the writing. I don’t know if this was enhanced by the audiobook or not but I truly loved how it made me feel throughout. I will definitely be reading more books by Julia in the future as I just love her writing style so much.

Who was your favourite character and why?
I swear I say this every time but my favourite character was the main protagonist, Emily. Her journey being the main focus of the story helped to make her an interesting and intriguing character. Emily is a curious person, she isn’t sure of herself but wants to be. She’s surrounded by people who seem to know what they want and it makes her feel a little lost at times. Another reason Emily is my favourite is because she was the strongest character. I found the minor characters to be a little irritating at times and I especially disliked her sister. But Emily more than makes up for them.

Would you recommend this book?
I think that if you’re looking for a beautiful, lovely story then I would recommend this book. However, I did have a few problems with the story, such as frustrating characters and moving too fast at the end, so I wouldn’t recommend it to someone who wants a deep emotional read that could change their lives. But I also think it is totally okay that this book isn’t completely life-changing. I like that this book was a simple and easy read that you can just dive into. It’s perfect as a lighthearted book to make you feel good about yourself and life in general.

Summarize in one sentence. (Verdict)
Drawing the Light is a lovely, interesting read about a girl who is finding herself.

The Legacy

Gemma Malley
the legacyWhen a Pincent Pharmaceutical van is ambushed by the rebel group known as the Underground, its contents come as a huge surprise – not drugs, but corpses in a horrible state.
It appears that the pharmaceutical company’s top drug, Longevity – which is supposed to eradicate disease and ensure eternal life – isn’t living up to its promises. Now a virus is sweeping the country, killing hundreds in its wake, and Longevity is powerless to fight it.
But when the unscrupulous head of Pincent claims that the Underground is responsible for releasing the virus, it’s up to Peter, Anna, and their friends to alert the world to the terrifying truth behind Longevity before it’s too late.

Contains spoilers for earlier books in the trilogy.

The Declaration Trilogy reaches its conclusion in this book. Peter and Anna are in hiding with their daughter Molly and Anna’s little brother Ben. Jude and Pip are still working in London, with the Underground, to bring down Richard Pincent and Pincent Pharma and Peter is itching to get back in the fight. Out in the world there are people dying and Richard is being told by his scientists that there is now a virus that Longevity cannot fight. Richard becomes convinced he needs the original formula for Longevity that Albert Fern (its inventor) withheld from him.

As the death toll rises and people begin to suspect that all is not well Richard turns them against the Underground, the surplus children and the opt outs. Children begin disappearing from Surplus Halls, Peter and Anna are tracked down. Richard wants to discover what is so special about the ‘circle of life’. Eventually, through a thrilling sequence and a couple of great twists and turns things come together for a clever climax.

Yet again this was a story I couldn’t put down. I enjoyed the way the writing moved between the different groups of people and had some cameo’s from old friends from previous books. I also liked the prologue at the beginning giving us insight into how the drug had come to be developed, what had happened to Albert Fern and how Richard Pincent had wormed his way into this position at the head of the most powerful corporation on earth.

The ethical and moral questions keep coming and the questions continue to get you thinking. It all still feels very plausible as it is rooted in the reactions of people, fear of death, fear of living forever, the choices we make and their impact on our environment, the distribution of precious resources and the kind of world we want to leave for future generations. I particularly liked the little hint at the end that this could happen all over again, after all humans are well known for not learning from history and repeating their mistakes. It made you feel a little chill at how easily we could fall into a world just like this one.

Verdict: So this is a great conclusion to a brilliant series, highly recommended!

Netgalley November: Week One Round Up

netgalleynovember3Personal Target: To read and review eight netgalley titles and improve my approved/feedback rating.

Books read this Week: 2 ( + one non Netgalley read – Time Between Us)

Running total: 2

Netgalley Approved-Feedback: 53.1%

Currently Reading: Time After Time by Tamara Ireland Stone

General feedback: I am really happy with the progress I have made so far this week. I was a little concerned at the beginning of the week as, not only was late starting the challenge but I also had a schedule filled with Allegiant themed activities; I finished reading it later than planned, spent an evening filming the vlog with Faye (see above) and then spent another evening meeting Veronica Roth.

Another small set back was that the next read on my TBR, Time After Time, is a sequel and I hadn’t managed to read the first book, Time Between Us, prior to the start of the challenge as I had originally planned. Hence the non netgalley read this week.

The Name On Your Wrist by Helen Hiorns

name on your wristIt’s the first thing they teach you when you start school. But they don’t need to; your parents tell you when you’re first learning how to say your name. It’s drummed into you whilst you’re taking your first stumbling steps. It’s your lullaby. From the moment it first appears, you don’t tell anyone the name on your wrist.
In Corin’s world, your carpinomen – the name of your soul mate, marked indelibly on your wrist from the age of two or three – is everything. It’s your most preciously guarded secret; a piece of knowledge that can give another person ultimate power over you. People spend years, even decades, searching for the one they’re supposed to be with.
But what if you never find that person? Or you do, but you just don’t love them? What if you fall for someone else – someone other than the name on your wrist?
And what if – like Corin – the last thing in the world you want is to be found?

I was introduced to The Name On Your Wrist at a bloggers event over the summer. Learning about the conception of the book, via the Sony Young Movellist Award, and hearing the synopsis, I was very keen to get my hands on a copy. Despite not being able to fit the book in to my reading schedule earlier, I was still so excited to get my teeth in to this book that I decide to go against my original plan for Netgalley November and read it first.

I absolutely loved the premise of this book, which was executed well, but for me the book dragged a little around the explanation element of the world building. I found myself disappointed that it wasn’t as original as I had first anticipated, and I recognised similar elements form other dystopians I have enjoyed.

As a protagonist, Corin was unusual for me in that I didn’t warm to her until a significant way in to the book. She came across as superior and know it all in her cynicism of her word and her distain for others who didn’t that cynicism. Despite being initially unlikeable her story was no less compelling. I loved how Colton looks beyond Corin’s sharp edges and spiky corners, exposing the lonely, hurt and much more likeable girl within.

What made this book for me was the ending. It was breath-catchingly original, brave and thought provoking. Unusually for me, I didn’t see any of it coming. It’s the kind of ending which throws all of your carefully built assumptions on their head and has you wanting to flip the book over and immediately re-read it so that you can process how this new perspective impacts your interpretation of events and actions within the story.

Verdict: I look forward to the authors future work.

After Eden By Helen Douglas

after eden 2Eden Anfield loves puzzles, so when mysterious new boy Ryan Westland shows up at her school she’s hooked. On the face of it, he’s a typical American teenager. So why doesn’t he recognise pizza? And how come he hasn’t heard of Hitler? What puzzles Eden the most, however, is the interest he’s taking in her.
As Eden starts to fall in love with Ryan, she begins to unravel his secret. Her breakthrough comes one rainy afternoon when she stumbles across a book in Ryan’s bedroom – a biography of her best friend – written over fifty years in the future. Confronting Ryan, she discovers that he is there with one unbelievably important purpose … and she might just have destroyed his only chance of success.

I can not resist a time twisting tale (I blame The Time Travellers Wife), so when I read the synopsis of After Eden I just had to request the eARC. Unfortunately for Eden and Ryan, I experienced their story after the mind blowing awesomeness of All Our Yesterdays, and they just weren’t in the same league.

While the world building was interesting, the characters likeable and the read enjoyably light and quick, overall the plot was a little too simplistic and predictable for my tastes.

I liked that the Eden and Ryan didn’t suffer from insta-love, that their relationship started as mutual attraction, leading to friendship and eventually more. However, because the plot skipped ahead by some weeks, we were told about their deepening friendship, rather than experiencing the development for ourselves.

With its sweet and chaste romance and simplified explanations of time travel, I think that this book would best suited to a younger YA reader. If it weren’t for the social drinking and illegal driving I would be happy to recommend it to a mature middle grade reader taking their first foray in to YA and/or time travel.

Verdict: A quick and easy time traveling tale.

Shhh! Don’t Wake The Royal Baby

Martha Mumford and Ada Grey (illustrator)

dont wake the royal babyIt’s chaos at the Royal Palace – the Royal Baby just won’t go to sleep. Waaaaah! Waaaaah! Waaaaah!
The Royal Family has tried everything to pacify the little bundle of joy – from proferring the golden royal dummy to death-defying parachute jumps with the Queen. But, just when the little one seems to be settling, another disturbance is just around the corner. From yip-yapping corgis to marching guards and noisy party planning, the palace is awash with noise. Will it ever be peaceful enough to lull the baby off to sleep?
A laugh-out-loud celebration of the new addition to the Royal Family, guaranteed to raise a few giggles.

As the description said the royal baby just won’t sleep and the royal parent s and grandparents try a whole host of ways to try and get him to settle down. The Duke takes him for a helicopter ride, the Queen takes him parachuting, he is read stories and so forth. But every time they succeed in getting the royal baby to sleep something in the royal household wakes him up again, my personal favourite was Prince Harry and Pippa preparing a party to celebrate his arrival with the cry of ‘More blini’s’. Indeed this is a funny book, seeing the royals trying to get this baby to sleep in weird ways is amusing, some of the humour made me smile more than my daughters who didn’t always get the joke.. They did enjoy the story and find some of it funny though.

The illustrations are a great back up to the story, the depictions of the royal family are recognisable and add to the enjoyment. The Queen in a onesie with crowns all over it and pink fluffy slippers was great (but one of things that will have made me smile more than my daughters). The girls liked the pictures of the soldiers, the corgi’s and the funny things they did with the baby.

Verdict:This is a light-hearted story that can please adults as well as children. Any parent knows the frustrations of trying to and quiet down a crying baby! It is a nice piece of memorabilia for children to enjoy now qand look back on later.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Mary Ann Schaffer and Annie Barrows

potato peelIt’s 1946 and author Juliet Ashton can’t think what to write next. Out of the blue, she receives a letter from Dawsey Adams of Guernsey – by chance, he’s acquired a book that once belonged to her – and, spurred on by their mutual love of reading, they begin a correspondence. When Dawsey reveals that he is a member of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, her curiosity is piqued and it’s not long before she begins to hear from other members. As letters fly back and forth with stories of life in Guernsey under the German Occupation, Juliet soon realizes that the society is every bit as extraordinary as its name.

I bought a bundle of books from a well-known online book retailer in part because it was a great deal and in part because it contained this book. I’ve wanted to read it for ages having missed it when our book club read it. It was one of those books everyone seemed to have enjoyed and I didn’t want to miss out! Thankfully I wasn’t disappointed.

Written in the form of letters this novel is the story of Juliet discovering what it was like to live on the island of Guernsey during World War Two. As the Channel Islands were the only part of the British Isles to be occupied during the war their perspective is a unique one. I found this book to be jammed full of anecdotes and details that made it all come to life and it was truly fascinating. Never before had I realised that all communication with the mainland was severed so Islanders really didn’t know what was going on (apart from the illegal radios). Their children were evacuated a few days before the German troops arrived and they had no contact at all with them for the duration of the war. I also didn’t know how scarce food became or how Guernsey people were sent to concentration camps if they were caught stepping out of line too far.

But enough of the history lesson! All the stories about life during the war are told to Juliet who is at the heart of the story. Having survived the war in London, writing a column for a newspaper, Juliet is looking for material to write a novel when through a chance letter she begins to correspond with the Islanders, all of whom were members of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society. What she finds is shocking, touching, humorous and courageous and through the letters Juliet makes friends as well as finding the characters for her next work.

Juliet ends up going to Guernsey to visit the society’s members. Her trip there completely changes her life. I really liked Juliet, she is charming, funny and pretty blunt at times. Her attempts at warding off an unwanted suitor had me smiling.

Juliet also discovers the story of Elizabeth. Elizabeth started (unintentionally) the Literary Society and was later taken to Ravensbruck by the Germans for helping a slave worker. Her story brings together all the tales told by the others in their letters, she is an inspiring character, to those in the book and to us as the reader.

Verdict: I so enjoyed this novel, it is full of information and yet you don’t notice it as you read. It has a fabulous range of characters, people who would never mix apart from these extenuating circumstances. It is realistic but still manages to be gentle, many stories are hideous but written with humour and in a way that is heart-warming. It reminded me again that friendship and courage are both so vitally important in the face of any adversity.

All Our Yesterdays

Cristin Terrill
all our yesterdaysA brilliantly brain-warping thriller and a love story that leaps back and forth in time – All Our Yesterdays is an amazing first novel, perfect for fans of The Hunger Games.
Em is locked in a bare, cold cell with no comforts. Finn is in the cell next door. The Doctor is keeping them there until they tell him what he wants to know. Trouble is, what he wants to know hasn’t happened yet.
Em and Finn have a shared past, but no future unless they can find a way out. The present is torture – being kept apart, overhearing each other’s anguish as the Doctor relentlessly seeks answers. There’s no way back from here, to what they used to be, the world they used to know. Then Em finds a note in her cell which changes everything. It’s from her future self and contains some simple but very clear instructions. Em must travel back in time to avert a tragedy that’s about to unfold. Worse, she has to pursue and kill the boy she loves to change the future.

Every now and then bibliophiles like myself come across a book which inspires so much adoration that not only do they find themselves zealously recommending it to all of their friends (and strangers in book shops), but they find themselves envious of all those people who have yet to read it.

The theme of my reading experience can be summarized as torn; torn between racing thought the pages to discover the fate of this amazing cast of characters, while simultaneously feeling like I should slow down and savour every single page (with the knowledge that I would feel bereft when I came to the end of their story); torn between equally rooting for two groups of characters, from two different time periods with opposite agendas; and having finished the book and learning of the plan sequel, torn between my fear of spoiling the perfect reading experience and my desire for MORE, MORE, MORE.

And I really do mean experience. All Our Yesterdays isn’t simply a fantastic read, it is a breathtaking time twisting experience, with stomach fluttering romance, heart pounding action, breath catching tension, flawed hero’s and sinister villains.

I’ve racked my brains for a clever way of telling you more about All Our Yesterday’s without giving away any of the significant plot. But what I’ve realised is that with regards to this book, every single plot point, every twist, every character interaction was essential to my experience, and I am loathed to take anything away from yours.
Therefore I am going to leave you with the blurb above and urge you to read this fabulous novel.

Verdict: Perfection. Quite simply the best book I have read this year!
