London in the Dark blog tour


Hello guys! today I am being part of a blog tour, for the book London in the Dark! So lets get started!


About the book:

London, 1910  

Budding Private Detective Cyril Arlington Hartwell has a conundrum. London is being ravaged by the largest run of thefts in recent history. His hunch that it is all tied together may put him and those he loves in more danger than he could have reckoned.

Olivia Larken Hartwell is just home from boarding school for the summer anticipating time with her adoring parents.She misses her absent brother, Cyril, hoping for the day he will finally come home. But tragedy strikes, causing upheaval for all concerned and changes her life in a way she never could have imagined. 

Olivia, Cyril, and their friends must bring the hidden to light, seek to execute justice, and dispel the darkness that hovers over London… and their hearts.

                                        My Review
                                         
                                        (4.5 stars)

        This was a very interesting read! I couldn't really decide whether to rate it 5 stars or 4 so I just went with 4.5.
Here is a little bit about the book. The main characters are Cyril, Olivia, and Dudley along with a few other people who are in there throughout the book. Danger is everywhere, pain is everywhere, where is the escape. Read about Olivia and Cyril, in there fight against danger and pain, in the book London in the Dark. I really enjoyed this book. More then I thought I would to tell you the truth. It was exciting and kept you reading. I liked the characters, and they were pretty real. I felt the book was very well written too. I was a little confused at the beginning of the book, but it is like that in a lot of books trying to figure out who all the people are and stuff. :) I would recommend it to ages 12-up. So yeah, it was a good read I really enjoyed it, and I would recommend it to all of you to read it.

Patriots Win Super Bowl 51


YES!!!!!YES!!! WOOHOO!!!!! NEVER, NEVER doubt Tom Brady!! The Patriots win the super bowl, and broke every record while doing it!!! YEAH!!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!! Completely
 U-N-B-E-L-I-E-V-A-B-L-E!! I have to admit, by the second half I had mostly lost hope. I mean no one in super bowl history was down by 25 points in the second half and came back and won the Super Bowl. No one has even come back from that far behind and won at any point in the game! But the Patriots, they DID it, they are unbelievably good. All you people who doubted that Tom Brady was the best can think again. Tom Brady is the Goat. (Greatest of all time) I just can hardly wrap my mind around it!! When it comes to the Patriots the game is NEVER over till it's over. NEVER!!! All the other players did an amazing job too. Getting open and catching the ball, keeping the Falcons from scoring. White scoring the winning touchdown. The Patriots were just, AMAZING. Brady now has five Superbowl wins, the most ever. He was the MVP (most valuable player) 4 times, and has been to 7 super bowls winning 5 and loosing 2. That alone should tell everyone that you can't beat Tom Brady!!!  
 (All pictures were from nfl.com)
                                                          Edelman's amazing catch
