Nothing In The News by Sideline Collective

A curious project by Sideline Collective...

Yes, we live in particularly sensitive times. Times where the truth really matters, and where newspapers have a more important role to play in modern democracies than ever before. But for a society addicted to breaking news, gossip, and celebrity status, to Facestagram and Twapchat, the latest trends, and the top tens, to sports punditry, conspiracy theories, cat videos, and ridiculous amounts of porn ... for this cultural precipice, we offer the one thing you need more than anything else: “Nothing”. Absolutely nothing. Today, and today only, there is Nothing in the News. Enjoy it whilst you can.

The White Road by Sarah Lotz

The White Road by Sarah Lotz
Genre: Fiction, Horror

Rating: 4'5/5


Everything started in a cave, the survival adrenaline makes Simon to believe that someone is talking to him.... but maybe is not just the rush of the moment, because he starts listening to the voice everywhere... "You're coming with me..."

'"You don't have to get to the top. Just bring us back some good stuff like with the caves.'
'You basically want me to almost die while filming some dead bodies on a mountain.'
'You got it.'
'You're a sicko, Thierry.'
'Yeah, yeah. If I can get the cash together, will you go?'"

In the beginning I liked this book, then I loved it, and in the end, OMG, you have to read it!
Reading this book was so real that you feel the cold on your skin and the breath of a third man on your neck, impossible to put it down!
There are so many themes that this book touches, that I would like to go through each one a little bit...
First of all, I do believe there's a presence when you are in extreme situations, a man/woman that maybe try to represent your fears, your grieve, or something that you regret... good or bad? That's your decision!
This books shows us a crude but realistic way of how our society is ready to do anything for fame and money. Because yes, Simon started this trip for the money, to become famous but I think he learnt his lesson, risking your life for the shame of the others could have some consequences...!
In this book we read how is life at the top of the world, climbing is not something that I like, I have vertigo, so high mountains are not my dream, but I can understand the power it has to give you to conquer one of those big mountains. After reading this book I just can admire all the climbers that try to summit a mountain, no matter if they succeed or not. The thoughts, emotions, experiences you read in this book feel so real that you almost feel climbing the mountain with them.
This is a claustrophobic, hunting and obsessive reading, maybe is not for everyone but I highly recommend you to take a chance!

Silence Of The Jams by Gayle Leeson - Great Escapes Blog Tour + Giveaway!


Silence Of The Jams by Gayle Leeson
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Source: Great Escapes
Rating: 4/5


Amy is the owner of the Down South Café, where once every month (more or less...) there's a dead body! Between her eccentric clients, her family problems and the amazing recipes she creates, the mysterious deaths just add a little bit spicy on the non-stop Amy life.
Who is the murderer this time of the blackmailer?

'I got Homer a cup of coffee with cream and one sugar. "Who's your hero today?"
"Enrique Pena Nieto, the Mexican president. He said, 'Behind every crime is a story of sadness.' Do you believe that's true?"
"I hadn't really thought about it, but yeah, I guess it is," I said.'

Amy lives in a nice neighbourhood, with her family near, and that means that their problems too, luckily, they make a common front agains adversities and they teach us that no matter what, you have to give another chance for redemption.
As we start reading this book, we discover that there are a lot of possible killers; the wife, the secretary, the brother... Amy will try to help her detective boyfriend Ryan, so we will enjoy a few romantic dates but some investigation too! But if you are used to mystery books, is possible you will guess quickly who is really the murderer...
This is the second book of the series The Calamity Cafe, but you can read it as standalone.
This book touches the drug addiction and taking prescription pills that doesn't belong to you. I've never understood how you can give to someone a pill that is specially for your ailment to someone that you don't know what effects could cause to them, if you are not a doctor, a prescription pill should be forbidden to share!
I liked how Amy played a curious game with one of her customers, learning history and talking about it is not always that you do everyday, but have an idol character each day make you to learn history without thinking it, I loved the idea! :)
This is a quick read, with mystery, friendship and family, it will keep you intrigued for a while.
Do you really know your neighbours?

Interested? Good luck in the giveaway! ;)
