Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I would have given this book two stars, but I have given it three because I was intrigued enough to finish it. It took me ages to get into the book because it just did not grab me enough. I found myself constantly tutting with irritation at the writing style but stuck with it as I hate not finishing books. The story did become more interesting but only as interesting as a rash - you know you should not scratch it but you do anyway (and yes, I saw the twist coming - how could you not?) so I carried on.

I found a lot of the book to be superfluous, and the characters unappealing. However, when I got to part two I thought the hype would be justified. But I waited.. and waited… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars It's perfect!, 24 May 2013
It took me some time to buy this case because one of my sons had surprised me by buying an Orla Kiely case for me - unfortunately, he bought the keyboard Kindle case! I struggled with the fact that it was far too big for my 4th Gen (I had to pad it out in order for it to fit) and could not justify buying this one. However, I could not resist any longer when I saw this case for a fantastic price. I am so glad I did because my Kindle fits perfectly and it gives me a lot of pleasure just looking at the great design. I would highly recommend this product.
La Sposa (Battaglia Mafia Series) by Sienna Mynx
5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!, 14 May 2013
What can I say? The third instalment of the Battaglia Series is absolutely brilliant! Like other reviewers, I was completely absorbed in the storyline and could not wait to complete household tasks so I could sit down in peace to complete it as quickly as possible.

I take my hat off to Sienna for penning such a complex storyline that she unravelled for us chapter by chapter. So many questions and puzzles were answered in book 3. I felt my heart stopping at times whilst I got through the book - and I know that for many of the characters things will not end well. I don't usually get emotional over books, but what happened to Carmine saddened me and I wanted to scream, NO! But… Read more
