Mean Who You Are

I love reading and writing. I read most genres but my favourites would be paranormal romances and inspirational/motivational books. I have mostly started this blog because I love to read so much and want to share my reviews and thoughts with the world or anyone who wants to read it, giving my little bit of input to the world as well as any topics of light that would help and motivate you. I am also an aspiring author, in between reading books and reviewing them, I am writing two separate books, one fiction and one non-fiction. I have too many books and Ebooks, enough to last me probably 2 lifetimes! You can never have enough books... he he

Mini Book Review: Once upon an Island by DM Potter

Once Upon an Island - D M Potter

Publication Date: 20 December 2012
Genre: Fantasy
Source: Amazon Freebie (Promo)
Audio or Book: eBook

Goodreads Synopsis:


Few people have ever been to Arapawa Island in New Zealand. Be warned - it won't be a safe journey. Kidnappers, giant squid and time travel lie down the different paths you can take. Which way will you go?

If you'd like a few pictures to go with your reading experience you can find some that inspired the story here:http://pinterest.com/debzeb/once-upon...

This is an interactive book suitable for readers aged nine and above.


My Review:

This was such a fun read. It is perfect for a younger generation. It doesn't have a straight story line - you are the main character. At the end of the chapter you get to make a choice as to how the story progresses by making a choice about what you should do. There are easily 10 - 15 different stories between these covers. You can go back and make a different decision and the story takes a completely different route. The different routes do not overlap at all. 

The way this book is set up is brilliant. There is no seriousness with this book - just pure fun. The writing is very well done. 

Final Thoughts:  
I am so happy I picked up this freebie while it was on promotion. It is a great fantasy adventure for a much younger generation, and I could appreciate it for what it was.
