Man vs Bookshelf: Cirque Du Freak

This entry is part 30 of 35 in the series Man vs Bookshelf

This was always going to be an easy book to get through. Less than 200 pages. Decent sized font. Nothing to challenge the mind. Oh, and I’ve read it at least twice before. It took an evening, and you’d think, how can there be anything to review in a book read in such a short Read more about Man vs Bookshelf: Cirque Du Freak[…]

Man vs Bookshelf: Twitterature

This entry is part 27 of 35 in the series Man vs Bookshelf

Sometimes I read a book that offers so little for me to review, I wonder if it’s even worth me getting out bed in the morning.    Then I remember there’s more to life than reviewing books. All those boring tasks I have to attend to. Working so I can pay the bills. Attending to Read more about Man vs Bookshelf: Twitterature[…]

Man vs Bookshelf: The Clifton Chronicles (1 & 2)

This entry is part 26 of 35 in the series Man vs Bookshelf

Since starting Man vs Bookshelf it has been full steam ahead. In fact, from week six until week 17, I read more than a book a week in all but one week.

Man vs Bookshelf: Harry Potter and the case of the Duplicates

This entry is part 18 of 35 in the series Man vs Bookshelf

There are plenty of books on my shelves a lot of people won’t know. This, I guess, will not be one of them. Let’s be honest, at this point Harry Potter is bigger than Jesus. Maybe even bigger than the Beatles. People are mad on the bugger, despite the fact he’s not the most compelling Read more about Man vs Bookshelf: Harry Potter and the case of the Duplicates[…]

Man vs Bookshelf: John Dies at the End

This entry is part 17 of 35 in the series Man vs Bookshelf

Okay, this could be a tough review. Not in an emotional sense, you understand, or because I’ve got nowt to say. Not even because it’s not a good book. It’s actually, spoiler alert, a great book. The problem, in this instance, is more to do with timings. See, although this blog is coming out on Read more about Man vs Bookshelf: John Dies at the End[…]

DAY ONE Written: 02/11/2017 for: 01/11/2017 When getting into a new task or challenge, there’s nothing more important than getting off to a good start. I said as much in Man vs Bookshelf.

So here it is. Book two of 210 in my Man vs Bookshelf challenge: Lisey’s Story. As you’ll know from the introduction and last entry, I had intended Lisey’s Story to be my first read.

Man vs Bookshelf: Horowitz Horror

This entry is part 2 of 35 in the series Man vs Bookshelf

Last Thursday, when I began my Man vs Bookshelf challenge, I said I was going to start with Lisey’s Story by Stephen King. This turned out to be a lie. Not that I intended to be dishonest with you so early into the challenge. I even had Lisey’s Story out ready to read. Then I Read more about Man vs Bookshelf: Horowitz Horror[…]
