What is a ‘Guilty Pleasure’?

Today is going to be a bit of a ramble/rant/whatnot about the recent discussions on shame for reading YA, if you have no idea what I’m talking about then I point you to this article where Ruth Graham wants adults who read YA fiction to be embarrassed. It reminded me a lot of when Alan Moore was unpleasant about adults reading superhero comic books in this interview. Should people be reading specifically for their age and not younger? Do we need to section bookstores into age categories or stop adults going into see PG films at the movies?

In short- no. People reading YA books that aren’t young adults aren’t hurting anyone. Adults reading comic books aren’t hurting anyone. If you’re not hurting anyone or yourself then it’s really nobodies business to judge you. Going back to the title, I realised as I thought about this post more and more, that I get asked now and then what my ‘guilty pleasure’ TV show is, or book, or movie. And I think that is where the problem lies. People being made to feel guilty about getting pleasure from watching or reading whatever they want because people judge them. And that seems pointless.

Have I ever felt embarrassed about things I enjoy? Yes. Am I anymore? Not so much.

I like Snooki. I like books about werewolves called Kitty. I like comic books. I like shows about cosplayers. I like writing stories about TV show characters. My favourite movie is You’ve Got Mail, not Citizen Kane. I have no idea who just brought out a new album but I know all the words to this song in Romanian.
Nobody is going to stop me liking what I like or make me feel embarrassed by what I choose to spend my time on. And I would never want for people to feel embarrassed or ashamed to talk about things they enjoy to me.

Phew! That turned into a bit of a rant. 
What do you think of ‘guilty pleasures’? What are your un-guilty pleasures?

Fiction Friday: Top 5 Summer Fiction Essentials!

Certain times of year make certain books more appealing. The Harry Potters, for example, are great Christmas books. Bridget Jones is perfect to read in the New Year. But Summer is unfortunately here and I have my top 5 Summer Fictional Essentials to share with you today!

Somebody came to say Hi while I was taking pictures!

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks

I’ve read this every summer for… years. Thus it is in a rather rough shape and has stickers from French supermarkets stuck in the back. In fact, when I announced my Fiction Friday series it was World War Z in the picture! A ‘factual’ history of the zombie war written in interview style with it’s noted survivors, this is one of my favourite books and I have a review and comparison with the movie coming soon. 

Y: The Last Man by Brian K. Vaughn and Pia Guerra
Y: The Last Man is the story of the last man on earth after every person and animal apart from Yorick and his pet monkey with a Y chromosome dies. It is… The best comic book ever. I love these books. I think Brian K Vaughn is a genius (he wrote a few episodes of Lost, and he’s currently working on Saga) I watched an interview with him as part of my Gender through Comic Books course and he is as brilliant as his work suggests. 
I’ve also had the honour of meeting Pia Guerra and she is absolutely lovely. My signed and sketched books by her are definitely what I would save if my house was on fire. She is, in my opinion, the best artist in a very male dominated industry. But enough raving. Read it.

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
Can any book be more comforting than The Hobbit? Does anyone not just relax at the opening line; “In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.”? On those hot summer nights when the fan is blasting and I can’t sleep because I feel like I’m in hell- The Hobbit is the book I reach for. And I’m looking to read of the Lord of the Rings series this Autumn so I want to re-read this first!

A Shore Thing and Gorilla Beach by Nicole Polizzi
In summer, at the beach or by the pool or just lay out in the back garden is there anything better than a bit of easy reading chick-lit? These books follow two cousins who summer down at the Jersey Shore and get themselves into all kinds of trouble. They’re fun, well written and I love Snooki.

Orange is the New Black Season 2

It’s back! Finally. After a dramatic finale of Season 1 I, like many others, waited impatiently for season 2 and it is back. With 13 episodes at an hour long each I’ll probably be done with this season by tomorrow but even so I’m so excited! Orange is the New Black is the Netflix Original show based on Piper Kerman’s memoir which I really need to pick up. Funny, dramatic and a female based cast? One of the best shows I’ve watched in a long time.

Fiction Friday: Books I Read in May!

Oh May. With my assignment deadline, I didn’t read as much as I thought I would but I did start doing full reviews of books which is a lot of fun. I stuck to two completely contrasting genres this month; horror/thriller and teen chick-lit, my tastes are flawless!

‘It’s OK, I’m wearing really big knickers!’ by Louise Rennison
I read the first of the Georgia Nicolson books in March and enjoyed it. Just like that one I found myself laughing out loud at this book and picked the next one up right after finishing it. The plot is a little lacking but the characters are hilarious. This series is constantly putting a smile on my face.

‘Knocked out by my Nunga-Nungas’ by Louise Rennison
It was a little shorter than the other books but the plot picked up as Georgia deals with having a boyfriend. There was a lot of, as she would say, ‘dramatosity.’ I keep rating these books three stars but I do like them. I explain my stars system here!

Bird Box by Josh Malerman*
I did a full review of this here and you have a week till my giveaway of a copy ends. I’ve read a couple of thriller type books already this year like Lexicon and Unravelling Oliver but this was the first thriller thriller and I really enjoyed it. It made me want to write some creepy stories.

The Three by Sarah Lotz*
I did a full review of this book too here! This was one of the best books I’ve read this year. Of the eighteen books I’ve read, this is one of three (heh) books that have got  and it honestly deserves it. My mum has actually taken this off me to read even though she hates planes and she likes it so far. Read it.

If I don’t get along with a book then I pause it, like Insurgent. This month we had another one. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. You may remember this from my Buddy Read announcement here where I was so excited to be reading this along with Lianne. Well. That clearly didn’t happen. Let me start by saying that I don’t really like being mean about books, I’m an attempting writer so I understand the effort and time and heart that goes into writing a book. I can be negative, but only if I feel I have a really valid reason.
But this book was just hard to read. I can see what Tahereh Mafi was doing and I can understand why but the abundance of similes and metaphors and all round purple prose… I just couldn’t. To the paused shelf it goes.

Fiction Friday: Book Review: The Three by Sarah Lotz

“They’re here. I’m … don’t let Snookie eat chocolate, it’s poison for dogs, she’ll beg you, the boy. The boy watch the boy watch the dead people oh Lordy there’s so many … They’re coming for me now. We’re all going soon. All of us. Bye Joanie I love the bag bye Joanie, Pastor Len warn them that the boy he’s not to­­-“

Pam, whose husbands name was Jim (The Office, anyone?), gets in a plane crash and leaves that message. Around the world three other planes crash. Pam only survives long enough to leave that message but there are three other survivors, all children, all fine. Or are they? The Three* is a book that explores the reaction of the world after this happens.

On with the review! In short, The Three is one of the best books I’ve read this year/ ever. Sarah Lotz has managed to write something about plane crashes that is better than Lost, which is not something I say lightly. The story was insane, every twist was like a smack in the face and even though I had no idea what was going on, it didn’t annoy me like it normally would.

The characters all felt very convincing and real, and even though it was constantly moving from person to person it was easy to keep up and get to know them. I was rooting for people, had my heart broken as the narrative progressed and just wanted to climb into the story and try to sort things out. We see the British media frenzy- there’s even a reference to Princess Diana in there, the Bible Belt of America’s religious reaction, and Japans slightly better way of dealing with everything. Lotz manages to stay pretty accurate to what I think would probably happen if this freak tragedy happens, and it’s a scary story in itself.

I’ve seen people compare it to World War Z which is one of my favourite books ever and I can see slightly how that might seem but for me, World War Z is more historical whereas this is more a media spin on a story. I really enjoyed the way this book was set out with prose then a book within a book, then more prose. It was a little Hamlet, a play within a play. I used to love reading these true crime books when I was a kid and that choice of formatting really made this book ‘pop’. I don’t think it would’ve been as good if it was just straight storytelling.

I was totally hooked, unlike Bird Box, I could not put this book down. I stayed up late into the night hunched over this book when I got to the last 50 pages and immediately took to twitter to vent my pent up feelings.

And that ending- the ending. Oh. 

I had no hesitation when rating this. I don’t hand out five stars that easily but this is one of the best books I’ve read this year. Hands down.

Book Review and Giveaway: Bird Box by Josh Malerman!

Warning: Do not read this book before bed if you’re a scaredy cat like me!

Before the review I just have to show you the trailer. Book trailers are a thing! And boy is it a hair raiser.

So! Let me start this by saying that I, a grownish woman, am actually avoiding looking out of the window as I type this. I am sat by a window, the birds are chirping and someone is mowing their lawn, but I am not looking and have found myself doing this for the past hour after reading this book.

Bird Box* is a stand-alone thriller and the first novel of Josh Malerman. We follow the story of Malorie and two children as they leave their house for the first time in years, completely blindfolded, in a world where people see ‘something’- go mad- and kill others then themselves. As they travel down the river, Malorie thinks back to how they got into such a terrifying and dangerous situation.

Let’s start with the positives; I was a huge fan of the protagonist, Malorie, a grippingly real character and I felt really close to her as the story went on. Her development and motherly instincts just had me rooting for her the whole way through. I wanted her to be okay, I wanted the kids to be okay, I cared what happened.
In general the story had me guessing throughout, I watch and read a lot of horror but this was impossible to guess where it was going. Every time I thought I was understanding how this dystopian type world was, Malerman threw in a curve ball.
Another thing this book did really well was the pacing, when stories do flashbacks it can be done really well (Lost/ Fringe) or really badly (True Blood) and this book did it engagingly well. The going back and forth felt like Malorie was reliving those memories, and best of all, it was a natural process.

However, I didn’t ‘feel’ the rare and elusive hook. I kept reading and it was interesting but I missed out on the pull. I did put it down a couple of times even though it was relatively short but it was easy to pick up again so I can’t fault it too much. I would definitely be interested in a sequel!

In conclusion, I really recommend this book for fans of the horror genre or if you liked Cell by Stephen King! If you want to be blindsided by a brilliant storyline, this is for you. If you were unlucky enough to watch The Happening, this will cleanse the taste from your mouth.

Bird Box was released today and can be bought on Amazon here! Or you can enter my giveaway to win a copy in the rafflecoper below. Good luck!

Fiction Friday: Books I Read in April!

April was a slow month. Not helped by my 30th of April deadline and my discovery of Sons of Anarchy (Bikers though) So I only finished 2 books. The shame! In my defence I did start Game of Thrones and that book is a beast. And for those wondering about my Buddy Read, I’ve still not finished it and Lianne couldn’t finish it! Post will be up about that sometime this month! Anyway

Lexicon by Max Barry*
This may possibly be one of the best books I’ve ever read. Honestly I struggle to even put it into words. It’s basically a thriller where certain words have the power to pull down peoples defences and make them do things, kind of like the imperius curse in Harry Potter. But so much more. The characterisation was flawless, as was the development of the story. The two sides of the tale run together in a way I was not expecting and when I finally figured it out I think I actually put my head in my hands for about five minutes because of how beautifully crafted this novel is. I’ve already bought a copy to give to a friend of mine.
Enough gushing? In short, read it. Dear god, read it.
I definitely need more of Max Barry’s writing.

The Undertaking by Audrey Magee*
It took me a while to read this book because my dad nicked it the day it came in the mail and read it in a day. So I was excited to finally get to read it even though I’m not a big history fan, at least not the wars. I like happy endings more than anything but this book intrigued me. Told from the point of the view of a German soldier and the woman he married without ever meeting, you’re brought through the war over around 10 years in quite a short book. I did find myself cringing at certain parts, I would beware this book if you have triggers because Magee doesn’t shy away from the brutalities of war. An easy read, but difficult subject matter.
I found it hard to rate this one, it’s a good book but I just felt there was something missing for me personally. I have a sticky note system when I read a book and this barely had any stuck in. Not a good sign.

Have read any of these books? What did you read this month?

Guest Post: Fiction Friday: Top Five Books of 2014 (So Far!)

Today I have another guest post for you from the lovely Siobhan who I’ve met in person and is absolutely as wonderful as she appears. She is sharing with you her top five books of 2014 so far, all of which I haven’t read and now need too! So without further ado…

Hello friends!

My name is Siobhan and I write over at Siobhan Emma, which I started in December 2013, originally as a food blog, but over the past couple of months it has slowly started to morph into a lifestyle blog where I review my recent reads, write about the clothes and beauty essentials I love, as well as days out and everything in between…and of course I still write about food too.  I love it too much to not write about it!
As a fellow book worm, I will be taking over Fiction Friday this week for the lovely Imogen whilst she’s on her jolly’s, and today I would like to share with you my top five reads of 2014 (so far!).
My one and only Kindle read of the year so far, and which technically I started at the end of 2013, but I didn’t finish it until 2014 so I’m classing this one as counting…I love it too much not to include it.  Personally I would save this read for the festive season, as this book consists of three love stories over Christmas time; Christmas Eve to be exact.  The stories are are written by three different authors, two of which are two of my favourite teen fiction authors, Maureen Johnson, and the King of teen fiction, Mr John Green.
I’m not usually one for love stories, but these ones are more heart warming than mushy, gushy, and I love that they’re set on Christmas Eve, my favourite day over the festive season (Yes, even more so than Christmas Day…even if I do have to work!).  There are no twists or turns in this book, just three lovely stories to get you into the spirit of things and feel all fuzzy inside during the most wonderful time of year.
This was my first official book of 2014.  This book was recommended to me as a great read for feeling inspired during the new year, so as soon as I finished reading ‘Let It Snow’, I got my nose stuck straight into this.  Although I really struggled through the beginning of the book, it was so worth the struggle of that first part to get to the truly inspiring parts for me.  Elizabeth’s memoirs of her time in India and Indonesia are so beautifully written.  She has really inspired me to see more of the World and experience life more.
Again this isn’t a book with twists and turns, as these are the memoirs of Elizabeth’s journey through life after her divorce, and I really felt like I went on the journey with her.  At the beginning of the book you really feel for her as she describes the pain she is going through with her extremely rocky divorce, then as you get towards the end of the book, you can practically feel the happiness beaming out of the book.  This is a really great read if you’re feeling a little lost in life and need a little inspiration.
I had never heard of Ruth Ozeki until I came across this book in a blogger book club I am a part of.  A tale for the Time Being is read from two perspectives. There is the main character Nao, where it is as if you are reading her memoirs that have washed up on a beach and are found by Ruth, who is the other characters perspective you read from.
I’m not actually a huge fan of Ruth’s character, as I found her to be quite mean to her poor partner Oliver quite a lot of the time, but luckily for me, as the book was written as if Ruth was also reading Nao’s memoirs as well as you, the focus was mainly on Nao’s character, who I just found enchanting, and at times tragic.  Some of the stories she tells you are heart breaking, and at times cover pretty heavy subjects, but to balance these out are the stories of her and her grandmother, and I couldn’t help but smile at these stories.  There is a slight hint of fantasy in this book as well, which always gets a big thumbs up from me!
What I love most is the message in this book, which I can’t really tell you without pretty much telling you the entire story, but it definitely put things into perspective for me.
Ahhhh ‘Wonder’…what a wonderful read.  This is such a feel good story, reminding you that us humans aren’t all bad.  August was born with a severe facial defect, and the book takes you on his journey from being home schooled to being a student in a public school, and how he copes with being thrown into all of these new situations that he has never had to deal with before.
This is another book based on a number of people’s perspectives; August, his sister, his friends, and even his sister’s boyfriend, which actually opened my eyes.  You got to see how August’s condition not only affected him, but those close to him as well.  Sometimes we can forget that although conditions as severe as August’s will obviously affect the person who has to live with the condition, but it will affect those around that person and care for them as well, just in different ways, and it’s good to be reminded of these things sometimes.
I won’t give the ending away, but I’m not going to lie, the ending brought a little happy tear to my eye.
Oh Lord…it’s THE book.  The book that has broken hearts all around the World!  And come June we have to sit through a whole film of it!
I put off reading this book for so long because I knew it would make me cry, but with the film release looming ever closer, it had to be done…and what a wonderful, heart breaking story it is!
Hazel Grace Lancaster is terminally ill due to cancer, and whilst attending one of her support groups, she meets Augustus Waters, who completely turns her World upside down, thus starts the amazing love story that is Hazel and Gus, which ends far too soon for my liking, however, completely not in the way that I expected, and if anything, broke my heart more than I was anticipating!
This book is an emotional roller coaster, so if you are yet to read it…prepare yourself!

So there you have my top five reads of 2014 so far.  I hope they’ve given you some ideas of what you can read next, and if you have any recommendations for me, then please throw them my way!

Fiction Friday: Books I’m taking on Holiday…

Today I’m off to Florence for two weeks, in fact I’m writing this in the airport. Today I thought I’d show you the books I chose to bring with me for my trip. Even when I wasn’t reading a lot- holidays were the one time that I read more than any other time, probably because the lack of wifi. So picking holiday books is a nightmare. I want easy books, hard books, sad books, happy books. So…

I think I have all my bases covered. Shatter Me was a given since I’m doing a buddy read of it, and so was Lexicon* which I have been reading for about a week and is an incredible book.
My friend Aime demanded I take Uglies and when I asked on instagram, Lianne said I should take Flowers for Algernon that I hauled here, Game of Thrones and The Woman in Black.
I needed my dose of Tolkien so brought along The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring. 
My brother is going to be around for the first week of my holiday so I had to bring John Dies at the End because he keeps telling me to read it.
I won The Ruby Slippers* and The Undertaking* from Goodreads and they’ve been calling to me ever since they arrived.
I Am Legend and Dolores Claiborne will cover any need I have for a scary read.
And The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and Muddle Earth cover any comedy needs.

And of course a guidebook. Times like these make me wish I had a kindle. 

Have you read any of these books? Do you have more restraint than I do when packing?

Fiction Friday: Books I Read in March!

It was not a good month! Call it a slump, a wall, a plateau, whatever, I just wasn’t reading much this month and every time I picked up a book I would read maybe five pages and put it down again. I even gave up on a book. But I have two  books and one  book so at least it wasn’t a complete disaster!

I have a thing for late night radio/ radio talk shows. I think it comes from loving the TV show Frasier as a kid. But when I was googling around for something radio show based, I found the Kitty Norville series which you will have seen me haul here! The main difference being that Kitty is a werewolf and the radio show is a talk show for the supernatural- werewolves and vampires basically. I wasn’t expecting a huge amount from these books though. I was kind of expecting the same kind of thing as the True Blood books- especially with a Charlaine Harris quote on the front. I was guessing it was going to be a fun, supernatural, trashy kinda read. But I was pleasantly surprised. Any book that manages to reference Paradise Lost on the 7th page is not to be treated like a trashy novel because damn. I was taught the first two books at school and that is not a book I would manage to reference easily.

It was fun while managing to deal with some pretty dark stuff with pack dynamics and growing up as a werewolf, and kept me reading long into the night.

Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison

Yes, I am twenty. I’m an adult. I can read what I want! You may remember me kinda hauling these books and I decided to relive my childhood while reading something easy and enjoyable. And it was, it didn’t suffer from the Princess Diaries problem of no time passing as this book covers a year and is much more like a diary. It was funny and reminded my a lot of my school experiences at that age, horrifying as they were, with boys and my ugly school uniform and friends.
My only issue with the book is the rather problematic references to LBGT people which reflects the time is was written (1999) and unfortunately now. I’m not sure I’d let my future kids read it just because I don’t think I’d want them thinking like that. But as an adult I can see the problem and know better.

Unravelling Oliver by Liz Nugent*
This book was original, and what I mean by that is that I have never read a book quite like this. Written from several peoples perspective, I read this book in one day and had a constant sense of unease as the story unravelled. It’s hard to explain this book, I would recommend this to someone looking for a bit of a psychological creepy read but beware if you’re someone sensitive to issues such as domestic abuse because that is the overlaying storyline.
“Oliver Ryan is a monster.”

A book I gave up on was Insurgent by Veronica Roth, the sequel to Divergent that I reviewed here. I got 256 pages in before I put it on my Paused shelf on Goodreads so I gave it a good try and maybe I’ll pick it up later but I just couldn’t read it any longer, it was making me sad to see it on my Currently Reading. It’s such a hyped up book and so many people love it but I just couldn’t. 

Have you read any of these books? What did you think?

Fiction Friday: Another Discount Book Haul!

Another book haul Imogen? Didn’t you just do one? Yes! I did! Don’t judge me! In my defence I bought 43 books for £33.95- So these books were around 77 pence each if my math is correct. Not too shabby. And hey- I can always find more nooks and crannys to shove books, right?

So these books are…

The Douglas Adams Collection – £4.99 at the time of buying, now £8.99
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
Life, the Universe and Everything
So Long, and Thanks for all the Fish
Mostly Harmless
The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul
Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency
The Salmon of Doubt

I bought two copies of this, one for me and one to give away because even though I own a couple of these books, this set was so cheap it was better value to buy all of these, than the four I don’t have. I love Douglas Adams writing for radio and film and I’ve read enough to know his writing is really fantastic and original. If you haven’t come into contact with his work before I truly recommend it. 

The Gollancz 50th Anniversary Fantasy Collection – £7.99
Flowers For Algernon by Daniel Keyes
The Book of the New Sun by Gene Wolf
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K. Dick
Hyperion by Dan Simmons
Eric by Terry Pratchett
I Am Legend by Richard Matheson
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch

This is a great selection of Fantasty/SciFi books and I’m really excited to try out some of the work of some very recognisable names. This set includes one of my all time favourite books- I am Legend which considering I paid £7.99 for when I first bought it, makes this set 100% worth it.

The Hidden Classics Collection – £5.99
The Last Day of a Condemned Man by Victor Hugo
The Devil’s Elixirs by E.T.A Hoffman
Peter Schlemihl by Adelbert Von Chamisso
A Strange Manuscript Found in a Copper Cylinder by James De Mille
The Haunted House by Charles Dickens
The Sorrows of Young Werther by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Notes from The Underground by Fyodor Dostoevsky
The Monk and the Hangman’s Daughter by Ambrose Bierce
The Good Soldier by Ford Maddox Ford
The Black Spider by Jeremias Gotthelf

I don’t read or own many classics, much to the irritation of my mother, so I thought where was a better place to start than these at just 59 pence each? These are all slightly less known, but still great, classics by various authors. “A Strange Manuscript Found in a Copper Cylinder” is just calling to me, what a great name.

The P.G. Wodehouse Collection – £9.99
Summer Lightning
Pigs have Wings
A Pelican at Blandings
Service with a Smile
Uncle Fred in the Springtime
Blandings Castle
Full Moon
Leave it to Psmith
Something Fresh

You may remember that I got a Wodehouse book for Christmas and although I haven’t read it yet, I have flicked through it and decidedly liked Wodehouse’s work enough to buy these to push me over the £25 you need for Free Delivery. I love the colours of the spines as well- they just look so summery.

And where did I find these? The Book People! I love The Book People, they have amazing value collections as you can see and also send out a catalogue every now and then that I used to pour over as a child marking the pages of everything I wanted. They also currently have an extra 12% off! I recommend all the collections I bought and also- The Hunger Games trilogy that I reviewed here! And the Sookie Stackhouse/ True Blood collection which I bought from The Book People years ago.

Have you ever read any of these? What do you think of my haul?
