D2: The Mighty Ducks Are Back!
Date Posted: 6/13/2011 | Go To Book Page

** For the full review please check out www.backofthebookreviews.com **

When I was growing up the Mighty Duck films were some of my favourite films! I still love them till this day and I don’t ever think I could get tired of them. I have my favourite characters: Charlie, Adam, Foulton, Dean and Coach Bombay. I would also find myself randomly quacking at people lol. Yeah I was a very weird child, lol!

I didn’t know they had made a companion book for the film until I came across it in one of my local charity shops. I immediately picked it up and was very excited to read it. Sadly my expectations were not to be fulfilled.

Dark Ride

A welcome addition to our site book list, sent from Piccadilly Press, I was eager to read this. I hadn’t heard about Caroline Green before I read Dark Ride, but I am going to be eagerly looking for more work following the read.

From the minute the book started I was pulled in and I couldn’t put it down, luckily I didn’t have to as it was a book I had chosen to read in a Read-A-Thon. The writing was easy to read and follow and that made my enjoyment of the book even better.

The main story was the love story between the mysterious Luka and Bel. However there are two back stories, Bel’s Dad and Lili, which added to the overall feel of the story. There were moments that were breathtaking, the fall off the rollercoaster and Bel in the Dolphin Marina.

This was the first book that I have read by Elizabeth Chandler. I have heard of her in the genres that I follow and Dark Secrets 1 was part of a box set I received for Christmas.

The book is two stories in one volume, Legacy Of Lies and Don’t Tell. This completely threw me at first as I knew they were separate stories but I didn’t realise they were set in the same place. I was reading Don’t Tell and recognised places and had to go back and check in Legacy Of Lies if it was actually the same place. Once I had realised they were different stories both set in Wisteria I was able to enjoy them.

We have been working closely with Christine since setting up Back Of The Books and I was looking forward to reading Demon Soul at the nearest opportunity, I had started to read it on my e-reader but I preferred to read the book. When the Read-A-Thon with Awesome Bookworm came around I eagerly added it to the selected books for me to read.

Demon Soul is the story of Rose Walters, an ex druggie sent back to earth for one final chance at redemption. Sent back with a fire demon living inside her and the gift of being a soul chalice. Her duty with being sent back is to save Gabriel Cane who has had part of his soul stolen.

Date Posted: 6/14/2011 | Go To Book Page

** For the full review please check out www.backofthebookreviews.com **

I originally brought this for my boyfriend as it was a vampire story, im more a werewolf girl. However I needed a shortish book to read and I decided to give it a chance. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to get the box set of the first four books.

Although the beginning was very slow and I thought it was more of a book aimed at boys. I got to page 98 and it all changed. The pace, the excitement and my enjoyment all increased. I liked the concept of Vlad’s best friend knowing he was a vampire and how Heather Brewer put in little touches to help Vlad get through a day more or less like a normal boy.

** For the full review please check out www.backofthebookreviews.com **

It took me the longest time to read this book which when im used to reading a book in 2-3 days I found very annoying! I guess I may push myself too much when it comes to reading but I like to have goals with it, lol!

The story on a whole was very hard to get into and it wasn’t until the second part of the book, and after I had watched the movie that I felt like it was getting a little better. It was incredibly Lord of the Rings-ish. With heavy duty words for places like cities and character names. The languages are quite hard to understand too at times. There is a guide at the back for pronunciations and what the words mean but if you aren’t used to this with books, it’s not that common in the books I read, you forget it’s there.

Excuse Me, My Brains Have Stepped Out
Date Posted: 6/13/2011 | Go To Book Page

** For the full review please check out www.backofthebookreviews.com **

This is the first book that I have read by Pandora Poikilos. I have a feeling though that “Excuse Me, My Brains Have Stepped Out” is the type of book that readers will either like or not like… I loved it!

Each chapter is based around a letter from the lead character Anya to her father. At the beginning it isn’t clear where her father is, at first I thought that he was someone that Anya didn’t have anything to do with, it was only towards the ¾ mark of the book that I begun to wonder if he had passed away. The final chapter gives the answers and is an emotional end to the book.

** For the full review please check out www.backofthebookreviews.com **

When I first bought this book, I honestly didn’t know what it was about, so I think that made the book even more intriguing to me. Reading the description posted above on the back of the book is what made me decide to buy this book. I had been on the Vampire book kick, so I hadn’t read anything other than that, aside from The Hunger Games (which I TOTALLY recommend).  So I went into this book assuming it was about Vampires and when I realized it was about Angels, I was pleasantly surprised. I am usually loyal to on genre of book, and with this book I guess my genre is “fantasy”. Anyway, onto the book…

 

When I first started reading the Preface for this book, I was a little confused, not gonna lie. Given I didn’t know what the book was about to start out with, but the set up was a bit confusing to me at least, and you really need to pay attention, because it is very important to the story. So with that I read on.

Date Posted: 6/13/2011 | Go To Book Page

** For the full review please check out www.backofthebookreviews.com **



Flood and Fang is the first book in the Raven Mysteries series. The series is about a very unusual family, a very annoying pet monkey and a Castle that thinks it’s alive. Oh and the

house raven!

The story was written from the raven’s point of view which made for very interesting reading. Edgar, the raven, notices some very unusual things happening around the Castle. Maids going missing, unusual tracks in the dirty and a huge tail. Then there is the flood that starts in the basement. Edgar thinks it’s all very odd and goes to investigate.

** For the full review please check out www.backofthebookreviews.com **

I became a fan of Chris D’Lacey’s work after reading his ‘The Last Dragon Chronicles’; these will be reviewed later on the site so please keep a look out for them. I had seen advertisements for Fly, Cherokee, Fly within the other D’Lacey books I had read and so looked into getting myself a copy.

The story is about a Darryl who adopts a racing pigeon and the adventure they go on to make Cherokee better and help her to fly again. Throughout the story it is unsure if Cherokee will be able to stay with Darryl as the school bully’s father is Cherokee’s rightful owner. However Darryl is aware that the owner will kill a bird that can’t fly or race so he works hard to keep him.

** For the full review please check out www.backofthebookreviews.com **

We were sent this book by Infinite Ideas to review. After doing some research while I waited by the time this book arrived I was looking forward to it, and I have to say it lived up to my expectations.

The story introduces us to a range of characters: Ravens, Shape-shifters, Bats, Humans, Hamadryads, Dragons and many other delightful characters. At first I thought that Camelin was a human like character until I continued reading and he turned out to be a raven. He quickly made it into the top 5 characters that I liked most in this story as my number 1. The friendship between Camelin and Jack started out very up and down but it was lovely to see that they grew close as friends and helped each other throughout the story. My other favourite characters include Jack Brenin, Timmery the bat and Charkle the Dragon.

** For the full review please check out www.backofthebookreviews.com **

I was given Hana’s Suitcase over a year ago but as I get upset when I read about the horrific events of the world wars I put it on the back burner. While I was choosing some of my books to read and review I was drawn to the book and decided to add it to the books to review. I am so glad that I did.

 

This story of a little girl named Hana Brady show you what life was like for a child in the concentration camps and what happened to Hana. The story starts with her living like a normal little girl and follows her life.  Like most children the story for Hana has a sad ending, you know just by reading what is happening although the actual mention of it is later on in the book.

I have fast become a fan of Catherine Cooper after discovering “The Adventures Of Jack Brenin” series. I have the first two books in this series and I can’t wait to read them. I contacted Catherine with my review to show her what I thought. She replied telling me about Hawke & Co – a series aimed at Middle Grade Children.

The first in this series The New Neighbours, I have been told by Catherine was loosely based on real life events. The story begins when Hawke and Sebastian have new neighbours move in next door. Accidently their shed/club house gets wrecked and it is their mission to get a brand new club house that is better than the one next door.

I picked up Hush,Hush, by Becca Fitzpatrick after reading Fallen, by Lauren Kate, I was excited to read it, I was on a fallen angel kick, and let me tell you, this book did not disappoint me. This book was actually the first book that freaked me out a little bit when I read it. The book itself isn’t scary, but certain parts had a creepy feel to it, and when I read them, I was a little jumpy. That just shows the awesome writing skills of Becca Fitzpatrick.

Date Posted: 6/20/2011 | Go To Book Page

** For the full review please check out www.backofthebookreviews.com **

I did this the wrong way. I always say to myself that I should read the book before I watch the film but when I watched the film I didn’t even know the book existed. Not that that changed the way I viewed the book, because it was mostly the same plot, it was still a pretty good fantasy/ sci-fi story.

Number Four (at this time named Daniel Jones) is awakened to find that the 3rd of 9 of his his people have been killed, which means he’s next on the list…now that’s a great way to start the story, ‘the main character is wanted dead’…he moves to the small town of Paradise, Ohio and becomes John Smith and there he meets Sam and Sarah and the fate that he has been giving only now begins to affect those around him.

I had a double whammy of goodness with this book: 1 I love Michael Morpurgo’s work and 2 I love stories about cats. If I ever see a Michael Morpurgo book and I have the funds in my pocket you can guarantee that I will be getting it. There is just something so magical about the way he writes. Kaspar lives up to what I have come to love and know about Morpugo’s work.

I was very impressed with this book. I was thoroughly caught up in it. I at first thought it was going to be a book about Kaspar however when you really get into the book you realise it’s about the boy. It is very heart warming and I loved it.

Anyway on to the review…………

What a fantastic book! A proper page turner from page 1 right through to the end! The characters Kerra and Gareth were so vivid; I think I have a new book crush in the form of Knight/Guardian Gareth…YUM! The chapters were brilliantly set up and were easy to follow. Some were written from a different section of the story but it was easy to follow what was happening where and why.

Lament was a different view for me on Faeries, but I liked it. When you think of faeries, you usually think of little ones like Tinkerbell, well these faeries are nothing like Tinkerbell, lol. These faeries are scary yet beautiful and mean business.

I have been a fan of Anthony Horowitz ever since I first picked up Stormbreaker and since then I have loved each of his works! He is without a doubt one of the best young adult/children’s authors around currently. Each book is expertly written and the feeling he conveys with his books just makes me want to read more!

 

The book which is part of the Legends series features 6 fables from all over the world:

 •Death and the boy from South Africa

 •Orpheus and the underworld from Greece

 •The death of Nornagest from Norway

 •The seven pomegranate seeds from Greece

 •The wishes of Savitri from India

 •Nidud the Cruel from Norway

 

The last part of the book is what people see as the “Five Visions of Hell”

Low Red Moon
Date Posted: 6/13/2011 | Go To Book Page

** For the full review please check out www.backofthebookreviews.com **

Where can I start with this book? Firstly on goodreads.com you can mark books out of 5 stars however I don’t think that 5 stars is enough! It should have 10 or even 11 stars! I read this book in 2 and a half hours as I couldn’t stop reading it, there is something seriously spellbinding about this story.

 

The two main characters were very vivid and you instantly felt a connection to Ben. There were a couple of Twilight (Stephenie Meyer) similarities: The way he was very mysterious at the beginning (although it was Avery wanting to stay away from him not the other way around), he was 17 (there was even the “how old are you” “17″ bit that was so like twilight that I had to laugh) and also the fact that the two lead characters Ben and Avery were bonded (very much like Twilight’s imprinting). For someone who loves twilight this will only enhance this story and for those who don’t like twilight the similarities won’t be prominent. I think as a twi-hard they were prominent for me because I am a twilight nerd.

This was my introduction to Melody Carlson and I have to say it was a very good introduction. I like the way that Melody wrote Never Been Kissed. The writing was very easy to follow and I could picture the scenes clearly while reading. I also liked the emphasis on Elise’s faith.

The first 100-ish pages felt very predictable. I thought it was going to be girl gets invited into a click – they set her up – girl finds herself alone – click gets their comeuppance – girl comes out on top. However after reading through the first 100 pages the story upped its game and from then on I couldn’t stop reading.

Piper’s Fury has been on my radar since I stumbled across Rachel Firasek on the Crescent Moon Site and since becoming one of her Sassy Street Sirens I had to read the book.

Piper’s Fury centralises around Piper and her friendship / relationship with Slade as she helps him to find his daughter. Evie, Slade’s daughter, contacts Piper through the visions she has and through the visions they are lead to her. It is not as easy as that though and they encounter family members gone evil, a demon that Piper realises is her father and a co-worker that has been playing for both sides.

I am so glad that Macmillan Publishing sent us Pretty Twisted. It is the first book by Gina Blaxill, a UK based author, and we are glad that we have been introduced to her work.

The story focuses on the point of view of Ros and Jonathan, the two lead characters. Each section starts with an introduction to whose point of view it is written by and a date and sometimes a time. There are sections of emails and of text messages which were written in a different font so you would know what you are reading. It was very easy to follow and the story was very addictive.

Radiance is the first in the Riley Bloom series. The story is about Riley and her dog Buttercup. The first thing to remember is that both Riley and Buttercup are dead. They are in ‘Here and Now’ a realm in the afterlife and have left Riley’s sister in the mortal world.

I was instantly hooked. Even though I had a pre existing idea of what werewolves were like, from Twilight of course, that didn’t really matter to me when reading this book. I always seem to get more into books that take place in my part of town. Well, at least in my state, in this instance. Mercy Falls, Minnesota is where this story takes place, and it is a heart wrenching, beautiful love story.

I have to say that I think this book was simply breath taking! Lauren Kate is a relatively new author in the paranormal romance genre but she is fantastic. I would recommend her Torment series to everyone. Again that series is amazing! However back to the book in hand…

 

The first three chapters were a little slow as they spent time to let us know the back story of the main character Natalie, her boyfriend and her past. Chapter 4 onwards was fast paced and I actually found it impossible to put it down! The only thing that got me the most was many of the times I read Justin Balmer I read Justin Bieber – NOT GOOD!

Ami Blackwelder has written the first five books in the ‘Shifter Evolutions’ series with book 6 expected in 2012. The series is about an alien race of shifters that invades Earth in 2020 and their journey on Earth. The SCN are against the shifters and want to rid the Earth of them.

 

The Shifters of 2040 is the 3rd book in the series. Under Blackwelder’s recommendation I took this book as a standalone book and it totally worked. There was enough information to help us understand who everyone was and what their motives were. The main focus of this story was on hybrids and was very nail biting at points.

I had gotten Torment when it first came out, this also was when I was in the middle of my pregnancy and all I wanted to do was sleep. So, needless to say, it has taken me awhile to read it for that reason only, because this book was amazing!!

When I had finished Fallen, I was SO curious to what would happen in the next book, especially between Luce, Daniel and Cam. Torment, for me, did a great job of explaining a lot of things that left me confused in Fallen, i.e. the shadows, and wow, what a concept they turned out to be. Totally made the story more interesting to me. I also love the relationship between Daniel and Cam in this book too, it takes you into a new level of their relationship and helps explain some things. I don’t want to give anything away or ruin the book for anyone, so I’ll leave it at that. I loved all the new characters in this book, especially Miles and Shelby, and I was happy to see the return of a few of my favorite angels as well. I loved the evolution of Luce and Shelby’s friendship in this book. I feel that Shelby is a friend Luce really needed and it was great to see it!
