The Lost World Diaries: A virtual interactive reading experience enjoyable for all, and you can be part of it! Read on to find out all about the new series, and even get involved with an Exclusive contest! VIP access to the Christmas party and a free short story could all be yours, but for now: read on!... (Contest closes 14th July 2014, Parents, this bit is for you too!...) 

  Too early to start thinking of Christmas? Normally I would emphatically say yes, but I may have found a fun, unique gift that will stand out as possibly the gift for 2014. The Lost World Diaries is a book series that is the first truly interactive novels and virtual world combined to create one great adventure. Ramp Publishing and a group of experienced designers and programmers from Disney, Nintendo and the like have come together to launch The Lost World Diaries book series that is designed to have passages in the books open up games and adventures in the virtual world. This will allow readers to join the adventures with the heroes Alex and Dean as they read along.The book series starts off in a giant castle filled with secret rooms, glass elevators that float across the valley, a giant airship that transports our heroes and readers to different worlds and an amazing sleigh ride pulled by a giant, friendly polar bear names Wilham down to a secret, hidden village. Readers will be able to create their own avatar, build their own rooms, read short stories in the library that open up new adventures and be the first to learn about the next novel in the series. There are 4 novels that have been created for release over the next two years with the second opening up an underwater world where all the fish and underwater creatures rule the earth, the third an ice world locked in a cold, unforgiving climate yet amazing beauty is hidden just beneath the cold and the fourth novel will open a whole new world in outer space. Each novel will open up a new world within the virtual world and will include new games and adventures with each novel.”We wanted to create not just a book series but an entire world that kids could interact with, share with friends and join in the adventures as they read along. By combining their love of virtual worlds with traditional book publishing we think that we are going to create a whole new experience and promote reading at the same time,” author Rick Momsen says.
  The Lost World Diaries are launching  a Kickstarter campaign on  July 7 which allows us to get a sneak peak at the new book series as well as a fantastic offer to pre-purchase the books and join the virtual world at a great price now. Also, tell them you heard about it from us and win VIP tickets to the virtual world Christmas party at the castle for your kids in addition to a free short story. If you want to get involved with the Lost World Diaries now you’ll have a great Christmas present for your kids in December that will promise them years of great reading and adventures. You can find out more HERE

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

Sophie Someone - Hayley Long

This book is very unique and is written in an unusual but fun way. It follows the story of a girl called Sophie who really wants to know what her true identity is and what her story began like. The book is written from Sophie's perspective, however, the book is written in code which makes the story extra interesting and very engaging for the reader. Working out some of the more difficult words is actually quite fun and it does make the entire reading experience more interactive and also better as a whole.
  I think that the book is very good although it can be fairly confusing to being with and at first you often ask questions that only get answered later on in the novel because unlike some books where you see the story from the outside, and therefore are privy to information before it is passed on to the main characters, you follow Sophie and get to know the facts when she does.

8 / 10 A good mysterious, unique, fun and very Belgian book. Add your thoughts in the comments if yo…
