Once upon a time there lived a little girl named Susan. She lived in a tiny cottage with a tiny white picket fence. Susan lived there with her just as tiny parents and her much bigger pet frog called Bob.
Bob was a special frog he could talk and everything. Susan and Bob were best friends.
One day Susan’s parents left Susan at home with Bob while they went out. They told Susan to be good and not to eat all the food and not to go into her parents bedroom otherwise she would be in trouble.
At first Susan was excited, she and Bob watched lots of cartoons, ate all the sweets in the cupboard, put her mums make up and shoes on pretending to be an adult and made a den with her parents bed sheets and the kitchen table.
After a while Susan started to get worried. It had been ages since her parents had left. Susan decided to ask Bob where he thought they could be. At first Bob said that they will be back soon but as the day went on and it was starting to get dark outside even Bob started to get worried.
Susan looked around the house, everything was a mess. Bob suggested she tidied up because her parents would be cross with her and maybe that was why they were not at home yet.
Susan suddenly became very frightened. She loved her parents and knew that she would be very lonely without them at home.
With Bobs help Susan cleaned the whole house. She put the sheets back on her parents bed and the shoes and make- up were cleaned away.
What can I do about the sweets? Susan wondered. Bob thought saying sorry to her parents when they got home might help. Susan thought this was a good idea as she really was sorry, especially if it meant she wouldn’t see her parents again.
Susan’s parents parents did get home only a few minutes after she had tidied up. They were cross with all the food being gone but they could tell that Susan really was sorry and she promised never to do it again.

The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks is quite different to his usual books. Usually he writes about love and more often than not it ends badly. I am a big fan of his book because he doesn’t write the stereotypical boy meets girl, they fall out, make up and live happily ever after. He writes a love story till then end, not happily ever after but a story that mirrors real life with all its ups and downs.
“You know me better than anyone, and you’re my best friend. I don’t think there’s anything you could say to me that would lead me to believe that you’re doing it just to hurt me. If there’s one thing I’ve come to know about you, it’s that you’re not even capable of something like that. Why do you think I like spending time with you so much? Because you’re a good guy. A nice guy.”
― Nicholas Sparks, The Guardian
The guardian is much more a thriller than a love story. The book follows Julie, a young widower who is trying to come to terms with the loss of her husband to cancer with the help of Singer the very huge and slightly quirky dog that her husband got for her.
Four years of widowhood later and Julie decides to get back onto the dating scene. One man (Richard) sweeps her off her feet but he turns out not to be who he seems. Julie finds love quickly but with Richard nothing is ever easy and she finds herself fighting for her life.
Richard…,” Julie said, staring down at the open jewelry case in her hand. Inside was an ornate, heart-shaped locket supported by a gold chain. “It’s beautiful. But… why? I mean, what’s the occasion?”
Nicholas Sparks gets you so you can’t put the book down because you want to know what happens next. Richard is truly terrifying! If you are not normally a fan of Nicholas Sparks I would still recommend for you to read it because it is so different to his other books but for seasoned readers of his it is still well worth the read as his trademark love conquers all is still present in this book. I give it a four out of five stars.
After a good couple of years of everyone going on about the hunger games I decided to take the plunge and start reading the trilogy by Suzanne Collins. I am now going to be one of those people who go on about it all the time. I absolutely loved it! I have also now watched the first film, as is usual it is crap compared to the book.
The hunger games is set in our future in the country of Panem. Panem has the capital of Capital with 13 districts around it. The thirteenth district was destroyed in the war. The hunger games was set up by the Capital to remind the districts not to rebel and start the war again by taking two tributes from each district and put them in arena to play to the death in front of a live t.v audience.
I‘m coming back into focus when Caesar asks him if he has a girlfriend back home. Peeta hesitates, then gives an unconvincing shake of his head.
We follow Katniss Everdeen who ends up being one of the tribute’s from district 12 as she volunteers so her sister doesn’t have to go. The book is split into three sections. The first setting the scene and giving us a background story, the second in the hunger games and the third after.
“I can feel Peeta press his forehead into my temple and he asks, ‘So now that you’ve got me, what are you going to do with me?’ I turn into him. ‘Put you somewhere you can’t get hurt.”
― Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games
I am not usually much of a fantasy book reader, it has to really make sense for me to take it even remotely serious., which most fantasy books fail to do but I really fell for this one! It is a book I strongly recommend and I will defiantly be reading the other two! I give it a five out of five stars.
