Great story

A great YA SciFi story with a couple of twists I didn't see coming. Will check out the next book in the series.

Enjoy bittersweet endings

A good little story about a living boy who is raised by a graveyard full of ghosts. The explanation for the murder of the family was a bit meh. Saying that, I loved the bittersweet ending and wonder if there's going to be a f

Enjoyable short trip around the golf course

The fourth Doctor teams up with the receptionist at Fetch's Hotel, in 1978, to defeat the baddie. Thought more would be made of the strange twins, but still thought it was a fun read.

Kept me gripped from start to finish. The author wasn't afraid to kill off characters. Will check out Book 2.

Better and better as events get worse and worse

Really loving this serial! Especially like how the different story strands are interconnected. Favourite character has to be blunt-talking Hoon. Onwards to episode three!

Gruesome but riveting

A different take on the zombie story - this time with deadly bugs! Read this episode in one go, and am definitely going to be checking out future episodes. Great to see a horror serial set in Scotland, too.

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
Roald Dahl

“So please, oh please, we beg, we pray,
Go throw your TV set away,
And in its place you can install
A lovely bookshelf on the wall.
Then fill the shelves with lots of books.”
Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

“Doors are for people with no imagination.”
Derek Landy, Skulduggery Pleasant

“What kind of person actually sits down and decides that no one should be allowed to end a sentence with a preposition? Not even decide what ideas you should or shouldn't talk about, but to actually make rules about what order to put your words in... It's such an amazing kind of petty tyranny.”
Jonathan Blum Kate Orman, Doctor Who: Vampire Science
