Mobile Phone VS Book!!

14 Jul

Recently, I came back from a weeks holiday in Santorini (Greece). This is my story and plea to never let books die out.

Whilst on holiday, I had a little accident. On the FIRST day, that’s right the first bloody day, I decided to have a dip in the swimming pool. As I stepped into the chilling chlorinated waters, I realised that my pocket was rather bulky. I felt my pocket and thought ‘there’s something hard in this pocket.’ Now I know what you’re thinking (dirty minded people) Let me make this clear… there were a lot of older women with EVERYTHING on show whilst they tanned so it isn’t… let’s say a part of my body. But as I forced my hand into my pocket, I yanked out my phone, covered in water.

‘Great, my life is ruined.’ I thought as I sulked back to my sun bed. I even went to the trouble of placing my phone in some Uncle Ben’s Rice to soak up the water. It didn’t work so it meant that I would have to cope an entire week without my phone.

Admittedly, it was fine, I did not miss my phone. Instead, I spent all my holiday reading.
I read a few books. I read Eeny Meeny by M. J. Arlidge (Average) , A Tap on The Window by Linwood Barclay (A very good book) and most of Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (Boring at first, better in the second half.).
As I read, I realised that I actually missed reading. With University, Writing and part time work, I never really get to sit down and just read whatever I want to and this holiday gave me that opportunity.
I honestly felt happier reading than if I was on my phone crushing candy, sending selfies or Tweeting about my day to people who simply don’t really care.

So lets all hail books because they’re amazing. Never let them become extinct. Peace.

The End of the World Cup!

14 Jul

Last night was the last match of the World Cup.

We all watched the finalists Germany and Argentina battle it out to win the biggest competition in the world!
The game was close, going beyond the standard ninety minutes, and into extra time, where the winning goal came just seven minutes from Penalties. Mario Gotze scored a great goal to seal the game for Germany.

Although the game was even, Germany deserved the win having been the strongest team in the competition. Their highlight of the competition of course will be beating the hosts 7-1 (which instantly made them favourites).

Overall the game was close, both teams cancelled each other out making it difficult to create too many chances, but when Germany got their biggest chance through Gotze, he made no mistake and put it into the back of the net in style.

So the Germans are the World Champions of football and that signals the end of the World Cup for another four years!

Four years after his wife and children disappeared, Ryan Milligan decides it’s time to let go of the past and move to a new home on Mulberry Lane. Ryan hoped his new house and peaceful neighbourhood would help him to cope better with the pain of losing his family and to continue his search. Whilst settling in and writing his new novel, ‘Killing for your love’, he realises things are not what they seem… – A book within a book novel!

“My new house is only a mile away from the home I used to live in with Tan and the kids, but now I feel like I’m in a different world. I can’t help but feel like I’ve been here before and done this before. There’s a presence here, I can feel it. There are things happening in this house that aren’t normal. I’m threatened by the lack of control I have over them.
There’s one room where I feel it most, and as I stare at the door leading down into the basement, it begins to creak open.”

Endurance Amazon Reviews

“This was a crazy story full of nonstop action (like on every page) and unexpected moments that just left you thinking wow. There were several twists and turns and it moved fast, like an action movie.”

“Love the book, and will read more from this Author… The book was different, I was, and still, don’t know which story was real.”

“This book isn’t the genre I usually read. However, this book is highly readable, good characters, and lots of twists and turns throughout the book.
A most interesting premise, good characters, good description and I recommend it to readers of like genre.”

” It’s a fresh plot with a number of unseen twists written in a style that is easy to read. His characters are well conceived and he wastes few words with descriptions that just don’t move the story along.”

“Really enjoyed this book! Didn’t see the ending coming at all, which makes a nice change from most things I read. Very good story line with lots of twists and turns. Great characters.”

” I’m not usually a great fan of this genre of book, but I have now been converted. I look forward to the next instalment and I hope there are a few more twists and turns along the way.”

“This book is fantastic! I literally could not put it down until I had finished! The twists and turns kept me guessing which is great for this kind of book as so many these days are predictable! The state of tension created throughout the book was impressive, I don’t know if I have ever been on the edge of my seat whilst reading before! I am busy recommending this to everyone I know and am looking forward to future books!!”
