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!

Have a Happy New Year People!

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. (and it's not that great to be honest) The book seems to be quite historical because it seems as though we are in the past, but we are actually in the future which is a bit surreal and strange. 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…

Skulduggery Pleasant: The Dying of the Light - Derek Landy

This was a little of a disappointment in some ways, the ending chapters were a bit confusing but that didn't stop the read from being utterly compelling in every way!
  I would say that a different ending would have worked well but the starting potential of the book maybe created a sense that the read would be ore than it was...

9/10 Good things for comments. Good things also for tweets to @TheOllyBookBlog

Artemis Fowl and the Seventh Dwarf - Eoin Colfer

A world book day special novella has came our way with something fowl inside it... Yes I know, that was a bad joke- but then speaking of humour there isn't much in this book compared to the others. Possibly due to it's size and also because of when it is set, which is just after the first or second book. This fact is not confirmed though it is definitely early on in the Fowl adventures.
  The ending of this one shows the first real sign that Artemis may not be as evil as he looks to be. This is portrayed as a twist however and a very good one too, this story is also included within the: Fowl Files book which I am yet to read, as I am with The last Guardian.

8/10 Do our views match? Do they differ? Only you know and only you can tell me. You can do this in the comments or alternatively on twitter @TheOllyBookBlog
