Meet Nicola Forster, Mel Brown and Carmel Clark, my three fellow book fans whom I’m delighted to announce as Guest Reviewers to Suzie’s Book Blog.

Nicola

Hey everyone, I’m thrilled to have been invited by Suzie as a Guest Reviewer and look forward to sharing my views and thoughts on the books I have read. My favourite authors include Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Jasper Fford, Marian Keyes and Mitch Albom. I love books with imagination, fantasy and magic whether it be an entire new world or just intriguing things happening in this world. I have an addiction to buying books and love nothing more than getting under a blanket and reading in the peace and quiet when I’m not having fun with my almost 3 year old daughter!

Mel

Hi everyone, I’m 34 years old and I suffer from FM and CFS/ME. I have a 12 year old daughter. I like to read anything really from Marian Keyes to Lee Child and so much more. I’m reading a trilogy by Chele Cooke at the moment. I do enjoy anything to do with vampires, crime, real life and romance plus so much more so please send anything my way!

Carmel

Hi everyone, I’m 28 years old and have a wonderful partner and three children in which one has special needs. They are 5,4 and 2. I am an avid crafter and I adore cross stitch and unwinding with a good book. I am very versatile with my style from fantasy, bdsm, love, horror and mystery. Many genres can capture me and I do love my series style books with characters I can follow through different scenarios.

After three years in prison, Shadow has done his time. But as the time until his release ticks away, he can feel a storm brewing. Two days before he gets out, his wife Laura dies in a mysterious car crash, in adulterous circumstances. Dazed, Shadow travels home, only to encounter the bizarre Mr Wednesday claiming to be a refugee from a distant war, a former god and the king of America. Together they embark on a very strange journey across the States, along the way solving the murders which have occurred every winter in one small American town. But the storm is about to break… Disturbing, gripping and profoundly strange, Gaiman’s epic novel sees him on the road to the heart of America.

Review by Nicola

At 736 pages, this is a book to commit to but it’s certainly worth it. I’ve always loved Gaiman’s use of language and imagination and this book was not a disappointment. The characters keep you guessing and parts of the story mean you need to ¬†just stop and digest what has happened. Sub-plots are scattered throughout, keeping the story intriguing. A definite must for those looking for something extraordinary to read.
