My Life Untold: A Review

I was given an ebook copy of this story by the author, S. S. Gee Buro, in return for my review.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe books started off a little slow, but definitely wasn’t boring, recounting the early years of the main character, Magda’s, life. Within a few chapters it had set up relationships and characters that had me in love and I found it very difficult to stop reading and put the book down.

Although the story reads like a typical historical romance, it’s so much more than the average romance novel. The book had plenty of context and plot that filled it out and made me feel like a whole life happened around the story. I couldn’t have asked for more from the plot. There was even a twist that I didn’t see coming.

The ending wasn’t as happy as I’d hoped it would be but I don’t want to spoil the exact ending. It definitely was satisfying and I think it was an accurate portrayal of the aftermath of the events.

All in all one of the best books I’ve read in a while. I’m very glad I got the opportunity to read it.

Book Cover Cubes

I’ve just had the most amazing fan make the most amazing tribute/present for me ever. A design for a book cover cube.

Doesn’t it look amazing! Not only is it a really lovely thing for someone to make for me, it’s exactly the sort of thing that appeals to my brain. I used to be the kid who spent ages putting together models made out of this sort of thing and had a lot of fun Sunday afternoon making up another from the extra sheet I was given.

I’m also going to get a pdf of the design via email so I should be able to make more of these gorgeous things and this awesome fan doesn’t seem to be too opposed to the idea of making different designs as I get more covers and creating cubes with genre themes or series books on them.

I have a feeling lots of them together is going to look amazing, even two looks better than one and I’m super excited about having them as extras when people buy books off me etc. I think they need to have something inside them though. Any suggestions (other than chocolate, cause let’s face it everything is better with chocolate)? And who wants one?
