Cold Blood - Andy McNab (book review)

Cold Blood by Andy McNab is the eighteenth book in the Nick Stone series. As this was the first novel by Andy McNab I have read and therefore the first in the Nick Stone series, I was glad that this book you were able to read as a stand alone and didn't need the others prior to knowing what was happening in this novel.

Cold Blood is about a group of amputees who were part of the army making their way to the North Pole. Throughout this book you see how they get the money for the trip to the pole and the troubles that comes along with this, going forward you also see how dangerous being on the ice are because of different countries wanting the oil that comes from the North Pole.  As things get more dangerous for the group other factors come into play which makes this book get more interesting and keeps the reading wanting more.

This is a good fiction book which chapters are really small so it's easy for reading on the go and for those who aren't fast readers and lose interest in reading quickly. I did find this book difficult to keep interested in however with having to re-read some pages at times as it wouldn't stay in my head. Overall, however I did like this book and would like to read more of this series to see if it is only this book or the overall series.

I would recommend Cold Blood by Andy McNab to those who like thriller novels and are wanting something fun to read. This novel would also be good for those who only like to read small amounts at a time as it's easy to pick up and stop when you wish with the chapters really small.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask - Akira Himekawa (book review)

Majora's Mask is the second graphic novel from the Legend of Zelda series by Akira Himekawa. As a Zelda fan myself and liking the game that this is based off of I found this book really enjoyable. It changes parts of the game in order to get it faster paced for the book however this doesn't fault the book at all. Not only this but the graphics within this book are really good and made me love the book even more while also making me have the music from the game in my head.

The book also has a bonus story at the end which is about the making of the mask and how the mask came into being, I found this really fitting and something that is not only original but something that needed to be added to the book. As in the games it doesn't tell you how the mask was made or the story behind it this bonus story seemed like a more fulfilling piece of the story and tied up any loose ends such as how the mask came to be and why it is cursed.

As a Zelda fan I can't fault this book and …

My Review:
Being excited that there was a Spider-man movie coming out I needed to see it as soon as I could however this film left me feeling kinda disappointed at the end of the film which did upset me and I feel like they rushed over some parts and made other parts just a little too slow for me personally.

I did like that this film showed what happened to everyone since the Blip which happened in the Avengers movies and that even though some people aged the ones who came back were the same age and had to continue life as they had before. This helped to explain what happened with everyone after the events of Endgame and showed how life continued. I also…

Time Travel - Roxanne San Jose (book review)

Book: Time Travel
Author: Roxanne San Jose
Genre: Sci-fi
Published By: Avid Publishing LLC
Published Year: 2019

My Review:
Being given a free copy of Time Travel for an honest review I decided to give this a read. Having thought it sounded interesting I was looking forward to seeing how this book would go forward and although this book had some good ideas I don't feel like this book was fully finished.

Time Travel is about a girl who invents a time machine and when coming home from the future finds that her boyfriend has went to the past and gotten himself stuck there so tries to get him back while making friends along the way.

I liked that this book had that when the couple went to the future and came across a robot went on an adventure with it after knowing it had been abandoned for a long time. Not only this but by having the main girl character Angelie come back for the robot when her boyfriend goes missing and asks for his help was really sweet and really helped to connect those ch…
