Dracula – Book Review

 

3/5 stars

Today I will take a look at a classic: Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

On the second reading I realized that this book contains a lot more than a crafty horror story. While the first half of the story was still in my mind, beautifully underlaid with the images from Francis Ford Coppola’s movie, I had completely forgotten the second half and therefore could really enjoy the suspense that was lacking to me in the first half.

Legend – Book Review

 

A dystopian retelling of the classic novel, Les Miserables.

This is what the blurb of this book tells potential readers. Much to my disappointment, there were no moments of spontaneous singing nor did the main characters burst into song about dreaming a dream. There wasn’t a single flag bearer in sight urging everyone to hear the people sing (I’m kidding. Slightly).

Instead, Legend is dystopian literature at its best. At first glance, it may seem like another young adult novel whose characters are no different from other characters in the more highly-publicised dystopian novels like The Hunger Games or Divergent series.

Book Review of The Bourbon Kings by JR Ward

It has been some time since I’ve read anything by JR Ward. Not since I read ‘Lover At Last‘ and was thoroughly disappointed. It didn’t stop me from reading the next book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood(The King), but once again I become disheartened and put it down when I was half way through. Because of my lost faith in the BDB series I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this new series. Of course this didn’t stop me from pre-ordering it on my Nook, or the first book in her Black Dagger Legacy series, Blood Kiss.

Editorial Review – The Sons of Hernan Garcia

 

Title: The Sons of Hernán García

Author: Charles Ameringer

Genre: Action/Adventure

The Sons of Hernán García, by Charles Ameringer, is classified as an Action/Adventure. However, it also reads as historical fiction. More specifically, it is a revenge-tale set in early 20th century Venezuela. The history aspect reads well, probably because Ameringer is an actual professor of Latin History, so he knows the facts of that time and place, and is able to translate it well through this story.
