Review: The Chalk Man

The Chalk Man The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor is her debut novel about 12 year old Eddie and his group of friends, and the meeting of Mr. Halloran, the Chalk Man.

Plot 5/5: This is a horror mystery with so many twists and turns. It kept me engrossed.

Characters 5/5: The characters are well fleshed out. I loved getting to know the characters.

World building 4/5: The story goes back and forth from the present to 1986, when it all happened.

Pacing 4/5: The pace was steady.

Writing 4/5: There were a couple of errors, but did not in the least interfere with the flow of the story.

Overall: 4.4

I highly recommend this book to lovers of Stephen King stories.

Won in a blog giveaway at KissinBlueKaren for the January 2018 New Release #Giveaway Hop.

Thank you, Karen!

The Deciding Book

A few days ago I was torn between two books. "Which should I read first?" I asked myself that question several times. Well, I tried both. 

The first was Lunora and the Monster King by H.S. Crow


After 5% into the book, I knew it wasn't for me. It's written like a play with the description of the characters at the beginning of the book. Then it tells us what said person is doing (i.e. laughing, crying), then we get a few words of dialogue. The chapters are acts, and very boring acts I might add. Unfortunately, this is not what I had in mind for an enjoyable fantasy novel. 

The second book was Stryke First: A Comic Fantasy by Kevin Partner


After 5% of this book, I also knew this wasn't for me. I kept anticipating the comedy, but I never found any.

So, after not getting past the 5% in both books I decided to DNF them. Now that I'm older, I'm quick to DNF a book. Life is too short to read books that do not catch my interest, though that is not to say that someone else might not enjoy these books.

The book that has gotten my attention, and I will definitely finish is: 

The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor



So far, so good! I can't wait to finish this book!

Have a wonderful day, my Lovelies!

🟊Auto-approved: Who's the one author whose books you automatically want to read, regardless of what they are about?

I use to be auto-approve with Red Adept Publishing, but I don't think they use NetGalley any longer. As far as not having anything to do with NetGalley, my author is Stephen King. It doesn't matter what he writes about, I have to have it!

🟊Request: What makes you want to request a book on NetGalley?

The cover and the blurb.

🟊Feedback ratio: Do you review every book you read? If not, how do you decide what books to review?



I review every book I read. Some books I have more to say than others, it just depends how the book catches me. 

🟊Badges: If you could create one badge to display on your blog, what would it be for?

I would create a badge that supported indie authors.

🟊Wish for it: What's one book you are absolutely dying to read?

That's the easiest question on this list!

I was nominated for this award by Nicole at The BookWorm Drinketh. I thought it would be fun so I'm participating. 

If you were to name one piece of clothing that describes you, what would you say?

I would have to say a flannel shirt,because I'm tomboyish, laid back, and I can take it off when I get hot!

If you had your human body, but the head of an animal, what animal would you pick?

I would have to go with a cat. I'm very much like a cat anyhow; not too concerned with what's going on around me as long as I'm fed.

What would be your dream job?

When I was a kid, I always wanted to do animation for Disney. Now that I'm older, I'd love to work in a library. 

If you were to create a slogan for your life, what would it be? (Example: Eat, drink, and be merry.)

I'd go with: Live and let live. 

What part of your daily routine do you enjoy most?

Reading in my bed after my grandchildren go to sleep. #MyTime

If you could choose your age forever, what age would you choose and why?

I'd choose 50, because I wouldn't want to go through what I've been through again, and I've learned a lot from my numerous mistakes that I am content where my life is at right now.

Choose an imaginary friend. Who would you choose and why?

I've had an imaginary friend all my life. I don't call him/her anything, but I talk to him/her all the time. My imaginary friend has never had a sex or color. He/she has just always been there, listening to me when no one else would.

If you could read one person's mind, who would it be?

I would like to read a baby's mind. I've always wondered what and how they think.

Would you rather see the future or change the past?

I would rather see the future. I am who I am because of the past, so I wouldn't want to change me.

What do you do to have fun?

I read, visit my mom, and play with my grandchildren.

That's it for me. I'm nominating:

Rainne at Rainne's Ramblings

Laura at FUONLYKNEW


Lonna at FLYLef

My questions:

 1. If you could be an inanimate object, what would you be?

 2. Where would you like to visit, and why?

 3. If you could be any animal, what would you be?

 4. What was your dream as a child?

 5. If you could only have one kind of food for the rest of your life, what      would you choose?

 6. If you could be a color, what color would you choose?

 7. Would you rather be rich and unhappy, or poor and happy?

 8. What is your biggest accomplishment?

 9. Do you have a favorite piece of clothing? 

10. What is your all time favorite song?

 Answer the questions. Or not. It's up to you! Hope you have fun with this like I did! Thanks for stopping by!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Marvelous Adventures of Gwendolyn Gray by B.A. Williamson is a coming of age story of self discovery and what the imagination can do.

This was a great story for young and old alike. The author has a great imagination and fantastic world building, with wonderful character development.

NetGalley and I are Parting Ways

I requested a title from NetGalley, but the file they sent would not work on my Kindle. I reached out to the help desk to ask if another file was available, but alas, no such luck. Instead, they wanted me to install an Adobe program on my computer to be able to read the file. I'm sorry, but I should not have to download programs to read books from NetGalley. So I've decided to part ways with NetGalley even though I know it's not NetGalley's fault, per se, but the author's chosen file. I feel that NetGalley should make sure that their members don't have to download programs just to be able to read a file.

Have any of you had this problem?

Until next time,

Fee
