5.0 out of 5 stars Great read, 23 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Little Wing (Paperback)
I have really enjoyed reading this book. I was really drawn into the character of Emily, but also into all the surrounding characters - her boyfriend Matt, Martin and Pete etc. The writer writes in a way that really allows you to get right into the story like it's a real situation you're watching as a film. The story is about Emily who has a baby and then has postnatal depression, and so she leaves her baby and goes to stay with a family friend. It's about her very gradual recovery and the life she leads whilst away from home, and the new people she meets. The book is very real and does not try to dress up the issue of postnatal depression. It's an interesting take on teenage pregnancy, particularly considering a lot of books about it make it all seem happy with a great ending. This book is good for older teenagers, but I certainly think adults would enjoy it too. It's a quick read, but certainly not light reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars NCIS season 3, 17 May 2009
Season 3 of NCIS was an interesting season. It was the season where the team were still struggling with the death of Kate, the problem of Ari Haswari and the arrival of Ziva. It's an interesting season with some excellent cases and a good finale. Not my favourite season, but definetely worth watching. Probably worth watching at least the end of season 2 first though

4.0 out of 5 stars The Youth Bible, 7 Sept. 2008
Although this Bible translates things into language that is easy to understand, I have to say that I often prefer another version, such as NIV or The Message (although in my opinion, not many versions can live up to The Message!). The way this Bible simplifies things often doesn't appeal to me and leaves less of an impact than other versions. The great thing about this Bible, however, are the stories that break up the pages. They are stories of every day struggles that will appeal to young people and can be useful in a youth group for teaching, or just for your own personal benefit


Florida Getaway (CSI: Miami)
Florida Getaway (CSI: Miami)
by Max Allan Collins
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Like watching on TV, 7 Sept. 2008
This book is so wonderfully written that you can really see what's going on. It feels just like watching it on TV! I thought the last CSI book was good,but this one was even better. I have personally never watched any of the CSIs, but I loved this book and still felt able to connect with the characters, despite never having watched the show, so I would reccomend it to devoted fans of the show, but also to people who have no intention of ever watching

4.0 out of 5 stars Spooks Code 9, 7 Sept. 2008
OK, so the acting and the script can be a bit rubbish, the story can be unbelievable in places and it's not as great a spooks. But so what? It's a completely different programme and so it shouldn't be compared to spooks.

Episodes 1 and 2 disappointed me slightly. Although I have never watched Spooks before, all the hype made me think that this would be something good. However, episodes 3 and 4 made up for the first 2. Unfortunately in episode 4 we ended up going back to some of the wooden acting that we saw in the first 2 episodes. I can't say how episode 6 is, as it is yet to air, but I'm hoping we'll be in for something better than last week

Just give it a try and try to see beyond comparing it to the original spooks

The Queer Adventure ... Illustrated by Joyce Johnson
The Queer Adventure ... Illustrated by Joyce Johnson
by Enid Blyton
Edition: Unknown Binding

5.0 out of 5 stars A queer adventure, 20 May 2008
This was my favourite childhood book. It takes the reader on a wonderful adventure through many different 'lands' as the characters go on a search for their friend. It is definetely worth reading. I was not and still am not a fan of adventure stories however I loved this and still do love it

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best book's I've ever read, 29 April 2007
This review is from: The Drowning (Paperback)
I really enjoyed this book. It was excellent. I could relate to it and understand it. Jenna's brother drowns just as she has been accepted at a dance school in London. Jenna doesn't go to London but stays behind in Cornwall and starts a relationship with a lifeguard from the beach. This story was sweet and romantic and had two plots interwoven together: Jenna trying to find out what happened the day her brother died and her dancing.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Change, 29 April 2007
This review is from: All Change (Paperback)
All Change is short and easy to read. I read it in 1 hour. It is sweet and romantic but TOTALLY unrealistic, although I think that the author has deliberately made it this way. It has the happiest and most perfect ending. It is the kind of book that once you have read the first 2 pages and the last 2 pages, then you know everything that's happened in between! I enjoyed it, though

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing book, 1 Mar. 2007
This review is from: Number the Stars (Paperback)
This is the best book that I have read for a VERY long time. It made me cry A LOT. Although it is short and that gives the idea that it is for little children, and the characters are young, I do not think that it is for children under about 11. I really enjoyed this book

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely stories, 21 Feb. 2007
The Percy the Park Keeper stories were always my favourite when I was little. They are lovely, short stories with very good illustrations.
