These ‘about me’ sections, or even sections that inform you about blogs, have never been my forte. Much to my chagrin, I was never taught the unwritten rules of what you are supposed to say. The links at the side of the blog – Twitter and Goodreads, for example – are liable to tell you more than I could ever say in words.

Mostly, this will be a book blog. I read a lot, and I love to share my views on my most recent reads. I try to read a little bit of everything, but if you look closely you’ll notice I will occasionally become obsessed with one specific genre for a short period of time. Old books, new books, yet to be released books – I read them all. If you’re an author looking for advance readers or just wish for more reviews of a book you’ve already released, please feel free to contact me. There is a contact form at the side of my blog – if you scroll down below the Twitter and Goodreads sidebar you will find it – so drop me a message and I’ll be sure to get back to you in double time. After all, finding new authors is what makes the book world go around.

Thanks for taking your time to read this. With a little bit of luck, you will find my blog much more interesting than this mundane introductory section.

Review: Orientation

Orientation Orientation by Mac Flynn
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This is another of those downloads that I purchased simply because of the word ‘free’. I’ve said it before, and I’ll sure I’ll say it many more times, but I’m a sucker for the word free. I give so many books a try for that reason alone, venturing into genres I wouldn’t usually read. Sometimes it works out, other times it does not.

With this one, it did not work out.

In truth, a part of me wished to give this read a single star rating. However, I’ve recently read a number of other books in this genre that are… well, much more deserving of a one star rating, if I’m to put it as politely as possible. Therefore, this isn’t quite a full two star rating yet I couldn’t bring it down to a one star, as it wasn’t quite as bad as others I have read and given a single star rating.

It’s a quick read, one you can complete in no time at all. It’s also one of those sequence pieces, where we are given a section of the story at a time. I’m not the biggest fan of such things, but occasional I read one interesting enough to leave me wanting to read the rest of the sequence. Whilst this one does end in such a way that you’re left with questions, the story as a whole failed to pull me in. I felt as though very little happened and then everything happened.

Overall, I cannot say this was my cup of tea.
