New/Old book smell !

Hey everyone 

One of my favorite things is the smell of books , there is the new books smell, that clean and fresh ink on paper, ink on gloss paper too. I find it really adds to the new book expierice and to the expierince of reading a book too.

Then there is the lovely old book smell thats more old ink and paper with a hint of musty smell, reminds me of old librarys and I wonder who has read said book before me.

My sketch below of an idea for containing book smells.

Bottled smells , perfume, candles , tealights, bubble bath.

Review: GIRL IN THE ICE by Robert Bryndza !

GIRL IN THE ICE : Dective Erika Foster. By Robert Bryndza

Published 16th feb 2016 ,396 pages.


When a young boy discovers the body of a women beneath a think sheet of ice in a south London park, Dective Erika Foster is called in to lead the case.

Eye under the ice sketch

When the victim turns out to be from a well to do family Erika has pressure to not dig to deep but when more bodies are found but with no apparent connections, Erika must connect the dots before the killer closes in on her .

A great start to what I think will be an interesting series , well writern with the charactors interesting, relistic and with plenty of depth.

The plot is a complicated and political, with Erika getting preseures from all sides, but Erikia is determond and stuborn which gets her in trouble but makes great reading and endge of the seat morements. 

Erika personal life has a huge inpact on her work, due to her been the lead on an opertion that went south and reasulted in her husband and other colleagues been killed. This has resulted in her blaming her self and she is always trying to prove herself and push herself to get the killer.

A brillent engaging read by Robert Brynadza that made me wish I could read faster , a complete shock at who the killer was just didny see it coming. Truely worth the time to read, now im of to get the second book in the series .

I would hugely recommend to anyone that like crime , thrillers or series with a strong female personality

I give this book 5 out of 5 

Finally got The Caller by Chris Carter

Woop woop !

I have finally got The Caller by Chris Carter and I so cant wait to read it, I have read all his other books

Book description:

After a tough week, Tanya Kaitlin is looking forward to a relaxing night in, but as she steps out of her shower, she hears her phone ring.  The video call request comes from her best friend, Karen Ward. Tanya takes the call and the nightmare begins.

Karen is gagged and bound to a chair in her own living room.  If Tanya disconnects from the call, if she looks away from the camera, he will come after her next, the deep, raspy, demonic voice at the other end of the line promises her.

As Detectives Robert Hunter and Carlos Garcia
 investigate the threats, they are thrown into a rollercoaster of evil, chasing a predator who scouts the streets and social media networks for victims, taunting them with secret messages and feeding on their fear. 

Robert Hunter is one of my favorite series characters and such a good show of Carters great writing, which is really addictive, while dark and though prevocking. It will be hard to beat his last book but we will see as I have heard a lot of hype about how awesome this book is and is a Sunday Times number one best seller !!

The Caller has so just gone to the top of my must read list and of course when I have finished ill let you all know how good it is.
