Goodreads Giveaway Update

In 2 days time my first every giveaway (To The Other, my first novel) will go live. CLICK HERE. Please save this link, join the giveaway and share it when it goes live. The winning copy will be signed. It’s up to the winner if it’s personalised. As this is my first giveaway and I’m not 100% on what I’m doing I’ve only made this open to the UK, USA and Canada. I will be doing another giveaway shortly after this one and will expand the countries then. Thank you for having a look, I hope you will join it and good luck. 

I watched a few films over the last couple of days. Oz: The Great and Powerful, which was great. I’m not sure what critics were complaining about. I really enjoyed it. I wish I had gone to the cinema to watch it in 3D, because I think it would have been simply stunning. I then watched Fright Night. The remake from a couple years back. I had heard mixed things about this film and put of watching it. Also I think the original is one of the most agonisingly boring and dated film of all time. The remake was surprisingly good. There were a couple of jumpy moments and was quite thrilling. The only negative thing about it, really, is that David Tennant should have been replaced by Russel Brand. The part was clearly written for him. I also watched Rush Hour, which I’ve never seen before. I was quite surprised. It wasn’t the best movie of all time but it was far from the worst.

Now that I’ve finished The Cuckoo’s Calling I’m back to reading Corey Taylor’s book. I have 2 chapters left. I will be uploading a review of it in the next couple of days.

I’ve also recently received the first draft of my timetable for my final year at uni. 3, 9:00am starts. This is a good thing for me. I start early, and end early. I feel sorry for the people who have to travel quite far with these early starts. I only live a half an hour walk (at max) away. After I’ve finished Corey Taylor’s book I’m going to read City of Bones (the film comes out quite soon and it’s been sitting on my shelf for 2 years.) and after that I’m going to start on my uni book list. My only heavy reading module this year is Victorian Fantasy (Also the only optional module I wanted, and I got in. YAY) I don’t know what order the books are going to be studied in but I’ve downloaded the free copies of most of them to my kindle. First up is The Jungle Book, followed by The King of the Golden River. I’ve never even heard of the later, and chose them both at random.

Thanks for reading,

    I just finished reading City of Bones. I quite liked it, but found that there was a lot of similarity to the Harry Potter series, as far as some of the characters were concerned. But I enjoyed the book and have started the second one, City of Ashes.


    • I’m glad you enjoyed the book. I’ve wanted to read it for quite a while but Uni books got in the way. When I saw the trailer for the film I saw quite a few comparisons to Harry Potter. Still looks good though.
