Broken–Kelley Armstrong

The werewolves are back! The werewolves are back!

I love my wolf pack.

Honestly, I look forward to seeing them throughout the series more than any other characters, but I’m really glad that this series isn’t completely revolving around them. Kelley Armstrong writes in such a way that I’ll always be intrigued by this series. She keeps you on your toes!

“Broken” is about my beloved wolf pack, and things are changing. (Pun not completely intended.)

Remember Xavier? He was from “Stolen”, he was that dingaling teleporter that is really only after things for himself? Couldn’t really care about anyone unless they could do something for him?

Well. He’s back and he’s asking Elena and Clay’s help in stealing the “From Hell” letter that is rumoured to contain Jack the Ripper.

Go figure that they accidentally open a portal and unwittingly let him out.

The real problem with this? There are all sorts of diseases that come from Victorian England and Elena has a little parasite of her own happening.

She’s pregnant. Naturally, Clay is worried as fuck.

Great writing, one of my favourite books as you get to see this couple work together again and do battle, but also that you get to see Elena trying to act in the best interest of her future kids instead of just herself and Clay.

Loved it. Constant vigilance!


V for Vendetta–Alan Moore and David Lloyd

       V for Vendetta is my favourite movie, has been for years, I’ve adored V for what seems like a ten years. But I never got around to buying the graphic novel or reading it.

    Finally, I found some money and forked it over. I’m really glad that I did because this was just as good as the movie. There were, obviously, some parts in there that weren’t in the movie and they changed a few things in the movie that made sense to. But all in all it was still a good read and I still love V. Perhaps even more now than I did before.

        He kind of reminds me of my brother.

Definitely check it out, it’s a great book and an amazing movie.

London:A History–A.N. Wilson

When I was eighteen I went through a phase of buying books about the U.K. so I could brush up for my trip. I figured if I knew about the cities and everything I would be more fascinated by what was around me.

   Like Oh! This is William Wallaces monument! (Found a picture of that the other day and completely forgot what it was.) Mostly the things I remember from my trip to England, Scotland and Ireland are the negative things that happened and (this may surprise you) the Harry Potter sites that I was lucky enough to see. 

This book is one of the books that I bought on a rampage. It is little enough that I could’ve read it on a plane and if it was boring enough I would have ditched it on the plane.

It’s clearly all about London, a city which I adore and would like to live in someday, and it gives a good, and brief, history of it. But I guess I’m not much of a history buff anymore, or maybe this book was just a bit bland, but I skimmed through the stories. I think I’m becoming really morbid from reading all those mysteries and true crime stories because I would skim until I found some blood and guts.

           London was a good, short, read but I think that writers should remember that people like to read books and be entertained. I know it was basically a history book, but there’s no reason for it to read like a textbook. (I use to read my history textbook like it was a real book and it was less bland.)

        I have to give the writer credit though, they had all their dates and facts right and I learned a bit from this book.
