Book Review: Sex Criminals Vol. 3 by Matt Fraction & Chip Zdarsky

26631602When Jon and Suzie have sex, they can stop time. Literally. And when they stop time, they rob banks.

As you do. 

But it seems that they’re not alone and the self-appointed Sex Police want to stop them from doing what they’re doing. And that’s why we have Sex Criminals: Volume Three. 

Sex Criminals is really weird. Like, the premise is weird. The writing is weird. It’s just weirdContinue reading “Book Review: Sex Criminals Vol. 3 by Matt Fraction & Chip Zdarsky”

Book Review: Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

IMG_1916According to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, written 1655 before she exploded, the world will end on Saturday. Actually… next Saturday. Just after tea. People have been predicting the end of the world almost from its very beginning, so it’s only natural to be sceptical when a new date turns up. However, it seems that the armies of Good and Evil are apparently amassing, and the four Bikers of the Apocalypse are hitting the road. However, there’s one angel and one demon who would quite like the Rapture not to happen. Oh, and they’ve also misplaced the Antichrist.

I read this book a while ago, so I apologise if this review isn’t particularly accurate, but this book was great and I loved it. It’s kind of hard to review a book that I enjoyed so much, because I can’t exactly pin down what I enjoyed so much about it. The witty humour? The awesome characters? The Britishness? ALL OF THE ABOVE?!

Have a Little Faith

Have a Little Faith, written in diary entries,follows Faith Ashby throughout her first four months of Year 10 – through underage driving, first kisses, mixed boy feelings and various antics, it keeps you engaged with short entries in places, but also with longer ones that keep you turning the page.

Faith is hilarious, witty, can be quite cruel, and is very feisty but absolutely perfect, and I would love to be her friend. I was constantly laughing – even crying with laughter at one point! – and her story kept me continuously turning the page, eagerly waiting on her next words. Her relationship with brother Sam is fascinating (to say the least) and her friendship with Megs is fantastic!

When I read this book, I was going through my third set of mock exams and was getting ready for my real ones, so it was a rather stressful time – especially as I had about 21 exams crammed into two weeks! The relief I got from reading Have a Little Faith was astounding. I honestly don’t think I would’ve got through it as well as I did without it!

Finishing the book brought a longing to my heart (especially as it ended on a cliffhanger!) and I was also absolutely delighted to find out that there is a sequel, Keeping the Faith, which came out in April! Although I have yet to buy the book, I cannot wait to do so!

I would absolutely recommend this book, mainly to teenagers, but I think adults would find it a humorous read (if just laughing at Faith’s naivety) also!
