The use of Libraries

There’s a lot of stuff going around about Libraries shutting their doors due the cuts that the government are bringing in. I don’t like this, I don’t like that they believe that the falling number of people using libraries means that they should be shut. I personally don’t use the …

The Graveyard Book – Neil Gaiman

I got this book a few weeks or so ago but due to my rereading of Harry Potter I didn’t get chance to read it until this weekend. I finished the Potter series and didn’t know what to pick up next but as my love of Neil Gaiman is one that I believe …

Harry Potter Collection

I’m not gunna go into a long arse review of what I think of the books tonight, I’m a bit too sleepy! I just finished reading the last one and as I picked it up last week it dawned on me that I hadn’t actually read it since its release back in …

Harry Potter – movie

I’m not gunna lie. This contains some serious spoilers!!!  I saw the Harry Potter movie on Tuesday night. The Deathly Hallows part one, it was as I thought it would be, bloody awesome. However….

Watchmen – Alan Moore

Last night I finally finished a book I have wanted to read for years. I kept meaning to buy Watchmen or borrow it from the local library and every time I had money or was near the library I forgot. However my workmate, who seems like a very cool guy as he likes reading and …

The Story Sisters – Alice Hoffman

When I picked up The Story Sisters in the supermarket I did so with the intention of it being a quick simple read, something to tide me through in-between more complex reads such as Welsh or Dickens. Instead I got something completely different, expecting a throw away novel that would …

Trainspotting – Irvine Welsh

Wow.  I just finished Trainspotting (finally, I know I need to read faster!) and it’s incredible. It’s a bit of a head trip in places, and some of the time you find yourself thinking “who’s this?” but you soon realise from the subtle changes in spelling and name references which …
