My Review of A Tale of Two Kitties

Review:

A Tale of Two Kitties - Sofie Kelly

A Tale of Two Kitties by Sofie Kelly is the ninth book in the A Magical Cats Mystery series. When Kathleen finds Mia’s grandfather dead, she and her magical cats, Owen and Hercules, have to find out who the killer is before Simon, her good friend and father to Mia, is arrested for the crime.

 

I had a hard time getting through this book. It was very slow paced, and the writing was choppy. There was far too much description. How someone holds their arms, or tilts their head does not add any value or depth to the story. It became very mundane. The story was very predictable from the start.

 

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

My Review of Forge: Dawn of Trials

Review:

Forge: Dawn of Trials (The Chronicles of Tov: Forge Book 1) - Chan Martinez, James C. Cobb

Forge: Dawn of Trials by C S Cobb is a coming of age story of Forge and his rite of passage ritual in the Cave of Trials.

 

This story has potential, but the execution left a lot to be desired. I felt as though the author was writing to middle grade children for several chapters, then suddenly writing to very young children, then back to middle grade kids. The tone of the writing was very inconsistent. The characters could have been better fleshed out. There were several grammatical errors, which interfered with my reading flow. There is a bit of a cliff-hanger, which wasn’t too bad since the author gave clues that there would be such an ending. Overall, I feel this book is geared towards children 9-12.

My Review of CREEPZ

Review:

CREEPZ - Ruth Bainbridge

CREEPZ by Ruth Bainbridge is a story of sex trafficking, and murders happening all over New York.

 

I felt a lot of the sex scenes in this book were for shock value more than anything. The characters are one dimensional, and the huge cliff-hanger was a big let down.

Grab some colourful snacks to accompany two colourful picture books for today’s double dip review.  We received both of today’s books from Bloomsbury Australia for review.  First up, we have There is No Dragon in this Story by Lou Carter and Deborah Allwright.  Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:

Poor old dragon. Nobody wants him in their story. Not Goldilocks, not Hansel and Gretel – no one. But Dragon will not give up! He shall continue on his course of finding someone who wants him in their story. ANYONE. His boundless enthusiasm surely won’t get him into any trouble. Surely …

A glorious story about dragons, heroes and ice cream with sprinkles. From author Lou Carter, a phenomenal new talent, and Deborah Allwright, illustrator of the bestselling The Night Pirates.

Dip into it for… dragon story
