The Traitors by Tom Becker - A Book Review

~*~*Note: This is my first time doing a book review. Book report, sure. Done plenty of those. But book review? Let's wing it. So could you please please give me feedback on how to improve this? Thanks a bunch :)*~*~ 

Recently I picked up this book called "The Traitors" by Tom Becker. Let's get into the review before I start ranting and spoil everything :P

Adam Wilson has been caught kissing his best friend's girlfriend. The next day, he is sentenced to two hundred and seventy four years in the Dial, a special prison located in a dimension called "no-time", where a blink of an eye on Earth isn't even close to a couple of centuries in the Dial. Besides this factor, the Dial was specially made for people like Adam: traitors. Everyone in the Dial has betrayed someone. Life in the Dial can get pretty rough, and everyday it's a fight for survival, and escape...

Overall, this book was pretty good. The plot was hands-down fan-freaking-tastic. From the whole idea of the prison to all the characters, it had me on a roller-coaster ride 'till the end. And all the backstories and...don't even get me started, I'll be ranting for ages. Doughnut (one of the inmates) was my favourite character. Look out for him, he's a good lad ;)

Right. Now for the part I thought was absolutely terrible. Click the button below.

WHAT THE EVEN HECK ADAM WHY THE HECK DID YOU STAY WITH JESSICA ARE YOU CRAZY?! //takes deep breath// Okay, sorry 'bout that. But, Adam. ARE YOU STUPID. First of all, even if you're in love with her, SHE BETRAYED YOUR BUDDY. Ever heard of "pals before gals"? Secondly, you're stuck there forever. Sure, you're stuck with the girl you love, and you'll never age and blah blah blah. One small problem. Remember earlier when it was mentioned that The Quisling had broken down? Well. WHERE ARE YOU GONNA GET FOOD FROM, HUH? HUH? Whatchu gonna do when you eat all the food in the pantry?

The First Clue


The first clue is up.

Oh, were you expecting a big, flashing neon sign that said "Clue One:" in big bold letters? Well, too bad! These clues are subtle, silent, and stealthier than a drunk ninja in high heels. It's up to you to find out what's different on my blog...

(By the way, I'll try to make it hard, but not too hard. Like, I totally won't go into one of my posts and underline a certain word. Why would I do that?)

Once again, good luck. (And remember, plaster the picture everywhere!)

I'm Back! + Birthday Challenge

Your favourite blogger is back! Bigger (like, literally XD) and better, with a new and improved ego the size of an overfed African elephant. (I am also recovering from an overdose on Skittles and Maltesers, but that's besides the point.) I have returned! Did y'all miss me? Of course you did.

And, I have more good news. Aren't I generous? Normally, I just complain about my boring, drab life. But this time, I have decided to give you two, yes, that's right, two pieces of good news. In one post! //audience glares//

The suspense...the anticipation...

My birthday is coming up! //shoots confetti everywhere//

But...I'm not telling you when! That's right, I'm that evil. I'm making y'all guess. Presenting...Ayumii's Birthday Challenge!

I lost the credits for the background pic...

I will release clues somewhere on my blog. (I don't know how many I'll release yet, so it may range from one to fifty XD) It's up to you to find them, and figure out which day my birthday is on. Before you ask, it's in August. So it could be any of the thirty-one days, including this one.

So, the rules.
  1. SPREAD THIS CHALLENGE AND THE PICTURE EVERYWHERE. I'd beg, but I have servants to do that for me. So, instead, I'm asking you veeeery nicely.
  2. You have a maximum of three guesses. 
  3. You can either guess in the comment box below, or you can do a little side post thing underneath your main post. (Just remember to direct me to your blog if you do end up posting it on your blog.)
I will reveal the date at the end of the month. The winners will receive a shoutout and a guest post. Prizes are negotiable.

The first clue will be up in the next 24 hours.

Good luck.
