Review: Mightier Than the Sword #1

Author: Drew Callander& Alana Harrison
Started reading: July 7th 2022
Finished the book: July 18th 2022
Pages: 320
Genres: Middle Grade, Fantasy
Published: July 10th 2018
Source: Physical copy from the author
Goodreads score: 4.44
My score:
Wildly funny and inventive, this interactive book pulls you, the reader, into the action. Yes, YOU!
You wake up in the fictional land of Astorya, where stories from our world come to life. You're a real human being (we assume), and in this fictional world, that makes you a superhero. Armed with your trusty pencil you have the power to create: what you write, draw, or scribble in the book becomes part of the story!
Only you can rescue Prince S. from the evil Queen Rulette. Aided by the Couriers--a French stoat with dangerous dance moves, a giant dung beetle, a fire ninja, a Pegasus-centaur-cowgirl and a super-intelligent femalien chameleon--you must write, draw, and puzzle your way through a hilarious adventure that is unique to every reader! And most importantly, you must prove that the pencil is mightier than the sword.

July Wrap up - Book Haul & What to Expect Next Month

Welcome, welcome my dear readers.
Welcome to the blog.

This month was a month of saying goodbye to the job I've had for 10 years. I've worked at the same school for so many years and because of my move I'm quitting the job! Luckily for me I've been talking with a project for Libraries at Schools, so hopefully something will come of it. 

Summer holiday has begun for me. I've been just doing what I want, relaxing and working on myself and my physical and mental health.

One of the most fun things this month is me babysitting this cute 10 year old boy who also stays the night every now and then. We have so much fun!

Not much other news, other than me going way overboard with my haul AGAIN. Well, let's just say that money can't buy happiness but it can buy books!

Thanks for sticking with my blog and for reading!
Have a great month with loads of relaxing and good books.

Review: Tonight You’re Dead (Sandhamn Murders #4)

Author: Viveca Sten
Started reading: July 10th 2022
Finished the book: July 16th 2022
Pages: 411
Genres: Crime, Fiction, Mystery
Published: November 14th 2017
Source: Ebook
Goodreads score: 4.08
My score:
Soon to be divorced, attorney Nora Linde is finding her way as a single mother, and even falling in love again, when she’s asked by her childhood friend Detective Thomas Andreasson to help in a disturbing investigation. Marcus Nielsen, a university student, has apparently committed suicide, but it’s what he’s left behind that’s so suspicious and damning: his research into the Coastal Rangers, an elite military group where, in 1976, a young cadet died under questionable circumstances, a sadistic sergeant went free, and a case went cold.

When two of Nielsen’s contacts are also found dead—and diaries of their tortuous training turn up missing—Thomas and Nora are certain that whatever happened three decades ago is unforgivable. And for someone who wants to keep those secrets buried—unforgettable. Now they must fight against time to expose a cover-up that hasn’t yet claimed its last victim.
