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: Destiny's Gambit

Destiny's Gambit Destiny's Gambit by R.J. Wood
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Destiny’s Gambit is the first book in R.J. Wood’s The Voyages of Jake Flynn series, and it’s an enjoyable quick read.

In truth, my rating is more of a three-point-five-star rating rather than the three-star rating I gave it. The rounding down is a reflection of my reading mood as of late, where I’m enjoying things yet nothing seems to be blowing my mind in the way I had hoped. I’m sure many will enjoy this much more than my weird reading mood allowed me to.

Destiny’s Gambit is a fun science fiction read, one that introduces us to an exciting new universe. There is so much introduced in this one, leaving us with so many possibilities for the future books. There really are so many things I cannot wait to see more of, so many elements I’m excited to dive deeper into, leaving me more than willing to dive straight into book two. It’s not just the possibilities that had me excited to dive into the second book, though. The characters were really enjoyable, and I was more than willing to continue watching their growth.

An enjoyable little read, one I’m sure many will really enjoy.
