The book was so compelling that I spent a whole day reading without showering, dressing or even brushing my teeth. I realise that sounds somewhat gross but I could. Not. Put. Narratively Speaking

Sarah's Book Reviews Last week I was supposed to be taking part in the blog tour to celebrate the publication of Erin Lange's latest release 'Dead Ends'. However due to lose of broadband connection and then many blog issues the post is (very) late, to which I apologise to the Erin, Faber and Faber and my blog readers. Dead Ends is the latest release by Erin Lange and the main characters Billy D and Dane set on a task to find Billy D's father who left him and his mum many years before. When he left he gave Billy D an atlas which contains lots of clues to towns, where Billy D believes, if he follows the clues, he will find his father. The author, Erin Lange, joins me on my blog today to talk about the strange names she found while writing this book:
Empire of Books Wow! 2013 is almost at an end, with just a few hours to go, and by golly gosh it has been a strong year as far as books have been concerned.

Each year, at the end of the year, I have an annual blowout online and in shops in advance of the new year and gearing up for reading in 20whatever it is. This year though, the blowout's tinged with a bit of sadness purely because this is the last year I'm doing it, using MFB as an excuse. From now onwards, my only excuse for buying far too many books one person with only one set of eyes and brain and can read is: I have a book problem.

This is not bragging, it's more an admittance of being spoiled rotten. These are the "from me to me purchases" - please do not judge me by my random DVD purchases included in the pic.
