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 Mermaid's Sister - Carrie Anne Noble

This book is quite surreal at times and is overall very good. Sometimes it is difficult to work out some things in the story but everything does become clear at the end of the novel. The book is set in Victorian times but it seems to be mostly timeless and it's time period didn't really affect the novel for me and it wasn't something that I thought about much whilst I read the book.

  The plot is rather good and it is written very cleverly. One of Nobles' strong points is her ability to create very real characters. She does this so well that at the end of the book you can almost sense the characters reactions and emotions to different events before they come which makes the author very skilled at her craft.

8/10 I enjoyed this one, did you? Let me know in the comments below or email your thoughts / opinions to:

A Street Cat Named Bob - James Bowen

This touching story will open your eyes to the world around you and show you how the streets of London actually work. A really heartfelt tale by an author who really does tell it as it is. I sped through it as it is so smoothly and simply written, younger children would do well to read the child version. You should also look out for the second book and the third which is focused on Christmas at this time of year.

10/10 Tweet me @TheOllyBookBlog and don't forget to comment, oh and Happy Christmas!...
