Two-faced Nitpicker

I'm here just to scope this place out as an alternative to goodreads and as a little bookbank in case I ever bank out of goodreads. (And did I also mention goodreads?)


About me: I'm a pretty lazy reviewer but big on reading so don't expect much reviewing but when reviews come, do beware of endless rambling about everything, including things unimportant like digressing on other unrelated books.

Archibald and the Blue Blood Conspiracy

Archibald and the Blue Blood Conspiracy - SherMay Loh This is not something I would compare to Percy Jackson, the greatest (I repeat, the greatest) mythology-based book in the universe, but it wasn't half as bad either.

Archibald just seemed rather pretentious and at times his actions weren't very smooth but it was pretty good for a book catering to the younger readers. The adventure was rather toned down, and it could have fared better if there was more action involved and pulse-racing adrenaline involved.
I quite enjoyed the ending because of that little twist but dang, there should have been more mentions of knightly pursuits in darkness, saving people from the shadows...

Just a little Post script here, but does Archibald's big brother seems a lot like Percy? (from Harry Potter)
