Teaser Tuesday 30th November

Teaser Tueday is a weekly event hosted by MizB from Should Be Reading. Anyone can participate, all you have to do is follow these simple rules:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Open to a random page.
  • Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on the page.
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away. You don't want to runin the book for others!).
  • Include the title and author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!
Here is my teaser. As this is from a collection of short stories I will include the title of the story and the author along with the title of the book.

I stiffened when the man took a step into my room, a thin hand raised placatingly. "We need to talk, child," he said, striking me cold.
Oh God. He wanted me to go with him.

Introduction to World of Book Reviews

Welcome to the World of Book Reviews.

As the name suggests this is a book review blog. Why did I decide to start this blog? Well I am an avid book collector/reader and I love to talk about the books that I have read. I dont have a particular genre of book that I enjoy reading, as I enjoy reading a variety of books, although I dont tend to read Mills and Boons.

As I enjoy talking about books this blog will feature not only book reviews but also other book related topics such as weekly memes, book hauls and reviews of book related websites. I want to make this blog as diverse as possible, so if you have read a book that you think I would be interested in reading then please feel free to leave me a comment.

All reviews posted on here will be honest and spoiler-free.
