This month I’ll be reviewing two books and none of them are Romance (yeah, it’s been a while since that’s happened). The first one is something I’ve been meaning to talk about for a while…
Skulduggery Pleasant – Skulduggery Pleasant, Book 1
Author: Derek Landy
Themes & Genres: Fantasy, Adventure, Mystery, magic
Meet Skulduggery Pleasant
—as well as ally, protector, and mentor of Stephanie Edgley, a very unusual and darkly talented twelve-year-old.
These two alone must defeat an all-consuming ancient evil.
The end of the world?
Over his dead body.
Date of my review: Sunday, May 12
As for the second book: it’s by two famous authors and one of them wrote one of my most favorite books – The Graveyard Book. The book that they wrote together is…
Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (standalone)
Authors: Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman
Themes & Genres: Fantasy, humor, angels, demons, end of the world, Apocalypse
According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world’s only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.
So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth’s mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.
And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist…
Date of my review: Sunday, May 26
Have you read either of this books?
Are you excited to see Good Omens on Netflix this month?
