Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Demons Of The Hellmouth BOOK REVIEW

Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Demons Of The Hellmouth BOOK REVIEW
  Author: Rupert Giles (though we suspect that he may have had some help from Nancy Holder) Publisher: Titan Books Published: OUT NOW So, 12 years after the show finished, how can publishers still find new ideas for books about Buffy The Vampire Slayer? More to the point how can Nancy Holder find anything new to say about Buffy The Vampire Slayer? She’s not only written an entire library of Buffy and Angel fiction, she’s also authored... 

The Autobiography Of James T Kirk REVIEW

The Autobiography Of James T Kirk REVIEW
Author: David A Goodman Publisher: Titan Books Published: 11 September William Shatner is renowned – even shameless – about using ghost writers for novels that go out under his name. Seems his most famous creation, James T Kirk, is similarly liberal with the truth when it comes to claiming authorship. Though he has an excuse. He doesn’t really exist. This clearly isn’t an autobiography. It is, instead, an enticing meta-conceit, concocted...

Asian generalisation and stereotyping – Hello, I Love You book review

Asian generalisation and stereotyping – Hello, I Love You book review
Warning, the following review does contain some spoilers. When I first found out that a K-pop and Korean drama fan had written a book based in South Korea, my inner fangirl went wild. Finally, someone has written the love story most overseas fans could relate to, in terms of dreams of course. Hello, I Love You is marketed as a “Fresh new voice within the young adult market. Featuring an opposites attract love story and a Korean K-pop superstar...

Living Through Literature: Classic Alice Brings Books To Life on Campus

Living Through Literature: Classic Alice Brings Books To Life on Campus
English major and aspiring writer Alice Rackham has “always been good”. A straight-A student with a Hermione Granger-esque dedication to her studies, her intelligence and hard work have earned her a place at the prestigious Valeton University. However, when an essay is returned to her marked B-, with comments accusing her of “sterile” writing and a lack of emotional connection to a poem, Alice resolves to follow in the footsteps of classic... 

Book review: Flashes by Tim O’Rourke

Book review: Flashes by Tim O’Rourke
Most good books have a cover and/or a blurb that hook you right in from the get-go, and Tim O’Rourke’s Flashes is definitely one of those. A mysterious young girl standing on the train tracks, references to crime and strange goings on, and O’Rourke almost has you gripped before you’ve even opened the book. It’s an opportunity missed by many books, which often copy the style of other well-known releases rather than looking to stand out from... 

Book review: Shiverton Hall – The Creeper by Emerald Fennell

Book review: Shiverton Hall – The Creeper by Emerald Fennell
Shiverton Hall. It would be all too easy to jump to the lazy comparison of Hogwarts and Harry Potter, but that’s like saying all school-based stories are the same. Grange Hill this isn’t. Here, Emerald Fennell delivers her second slice of fearsome storytelling, as Arthur Bannister returns to Shiverton Hall for a second term. It must be challenging these days to even attempt to write a story such as this because of the huge popularity of the Harry... 

Book review: Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Book review: Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
With Rainbow Rowell’s new book Landline due for release in July, we take a look at her previous story Eleanor & Park. Never judge a book by its cover. It’s always too easy to pick up a book, read the blurb and jump to an assumption whether you’ll like it or not. Every so often, it’s worth trying something a little different, as sometimes you can find a hidden treasure. I consider Eleanor & Park to be such a discovery. It’s easy...
