In this post I will highlight three books I read over the last 3-4 days. One was pretty good and the other 2- well, let’s just say, I don’t know why I still pick up books that I suspect I will not enjoy.
The reasoning would be that- I sometimes read some heavy stuff and my mind is always working.. like, literally at work, even during the weekend so I tell myself to pick up something daft to give my mind a rest. Then I end up regretting my decisions… but hey, they’re still books and I may sound like a worthless piece of a human, but they are a means to an end!
Great story in terms of action, characters and mystery itself!… In the end I got slightly confused at who actually did what. But it all made sense and from the beginning I had an inkling of the culprit.. I Did!
It’s a medieval Wales meets young Hercule Poirot(Gareth) and young Agatha Christie(Gwen)! 🙂 The two MC’s were lovable and possibly the first characters I’ve read about that were romantically pining after each other so much it made my own heart ache. But it was all sweet and innocent.
I would definitely recommend to give this one a go!

I really didn’t like how upon a death of certain somehow it was totally ignored.. It was necessary to bring that character into the story but to dispose of them so easily without a second thought felt weird.
I sat on my couch after finishing and thought to myself: “Well, that’s a couple of hours of my life I’ll never get back. You better think about that fact before you pick up another book like that.”
Basically- the good girl and the bad boy. Again.. Seriously. A.G.A.I.N!
I admit, I push myself into reading all sorts of stuff because you just never know where you find a gem of a story, right? But, darn it, I should learn by now, that the way book market is- these gems are like a needle in the haystack.
Anyway, I do respect the work author has put into the book. I liked how the reader gets both MC’s POVs.
But to me, it was just mush. A teenagey, gooey mush.
I can see though how this book would be a hit among the young-young and in a way it’s nice as Dara is your motivated, energetic girl who organises all sorts of stuff. So, in that way a good literary role model for young girls.
