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: The Candidates

The Candidates The Candidates by Emilia Zeeland
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

After reading The Unsound Theory, the first book in Emilia Zeeland’s STAR Academy series, I could not wait until I got more of the universe. With book two, The Truth Hunters, just around the corner, I decided I would throw myself back into the world through reading the prequel short story.

You do not need to read The Candidates to understand the STAR Academy world, but for those who enjoyed the first book, this is a nice little addition to the series. It gives us a nice little introduction to the events before The Unsound Theory, allowing us to see more of some of the characters we got to know, allowing us to know some more of the details that came to light throughout The Unsound Theory.

I’m not the biggest lover of these short stories – the single chapter, can be completed in under half hour reads – but when done right they are certainly worth the read. The Candidates is certainly done right, giving us that little bit more, making it the perfect read to put me back into the world prior to my journey back into the universe.

If you enjoy the STAR Academy universe, I’d certainly recommend grabbing this quick read.
