Best Books Of 2012!

  Here it is, The final rundown of 2012! So, getting started here are the best books I read this year, starting last...

10. Shadowmagic. Being the last book to be reviewed it was harder to pick Shadowmagic, but it is still definetly a book deserving of #10!

9. Traces: Framed. Warning: May Contain Traces Of a Fantastic Read That Completely Deserves To Be Here On My List.

8. Hover Car Racer. Racing through the list is a Hover Car! Come on Chaser- oh and you Bug!

7. Young Sherlock Holmes: Death Cloud. This book is like a cloudy dream if you love books, but if you don't: A storm of DEATH! On my list, it's at #8!

6. Young James Bond: Silverfin. So many young books in the world today! Thumbs up Charlie Higson, you're included on my list!

5. Skulduggery Pleasant: Kingdom of The Wicked. Wicked! No, literary, This is wicked in both ways! So wicked it deserves to go... On My List! How did I see that one coming...

4. Daniel X: Watch The Skies. Soon after the Hover Car Racer zooms past an alien flies down to Earth! Good job some people Watch The Skies!

3. Gone. Wow that aliens gone, meaning we have room for another name on the list: GONE!

2. The Hunger Games. The First book I ever reviewed, so now we have the newest book and the oldest. The oldest was a paperback whereas the latest edition was on Kindle. hat does that say about Technology these days!

1. The Maze Runner. Wow, give it up for #1! A-maze-ing!

Blog undergoing Maintenance!

Hi guys, today I have a different sort of post for you.
Starting today I am going to be changing the overall look and design of The Olly Book Blog, for a while you might start seeing things on the site that don't quite seem right, do not worry, this is just part of the maintenance that I am doing! 
I would also like to ask you for any ideas or suggestions of how I could edit the blog as I will always appreciate your feedback seeing as you guys are the ones who will be using and looking at the blog. So if you do have any feedback just go ahead and make it known in the comments.
I would also like to share with you a new book blog that I think you will enjoy. You can find it at: Et's Best Books Blog.
Please do check that blog out as it has some great content that I think you guys will enjoy. So that's all for now, I will update you when the maintenance is completed and then should be able to hopefully start posting new book reviews on a more regular basis.
Thanks for all …

The Periodic Table: A Field Guide to the Elements - Paul Parsons and Gail Dixon

The periodic table was originally thought in the early 1860's, as a way of organising new elements found by scientists, the table was redesigned a number of times by different scientists to sort elements in different ways. Eventually, they came up with the system that we have today, which you will see in science when you learn it at school or college etc.

  The book is a work of non-fiction and is designed to teach you about each singular element found in the modern periodic table, the book has a factfile of each substance accompanied with a very detailed overview of it.

Fever Crumb - Philip Reeve

Philip Reeve is highly acclaimed for his book, Mortal Engines which is a futuristic steam-punk book with moving cities and flying airships. This book is much the same however it takes place on the ground which is obviously less exciting, it also takes place in London, unlike Mortal Engines.    The book is set before Reeve's first steam-punk novel and is supposed to link to events in Mortal Engines however I can't see too many of these links and the only real one is at the end.

Reading about carts being pulled around London and archaeologists trying to use 'old tech', things like vacuum cleaners for example is just plain weird.    The story often seems to have no real destination and somethings in the book are made out to be a bigger deal than they actually are, for example…
