B's World of Enchanted Books

The Toy Sorcerer (Ancient Knowledge, #1) - Laura  Hart Review is also posted on my blog: Bookaddict Bieke.2.5 starsWell, this was different. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either. The Toy Sorcerer is an original story that has a Alice in Wonderland-vibe to it. Too bad I was never a fan of that story, but I kind of liked this version of it. The story is well-crafted and it's written pretty good too, but I had a hard time getting through it. I had to force myself to continue reading the book. Once I was reading I got through it pretty quick but I don't like it when I have to force myself to read it. I read it because I had to finish it. I postponed reading it a lot and that's never good.What I liked:The plot is pretty original. I loved the characters. Especially Shammy. He's so fun! I also liked the world the writer has created in this book. The Dream Realms are exciting and scary at the same time.What I didn't like:Well... the fact that I didn't want to read it further and had to force myself doing so, can be because this just isn't my cup of tea. That doesn't mean this story is bad, because it isn't. It's pretty good, but not everybody likes the same things. Something that really annoyed me throughout the book are the occasional spelling and grammar errors I found. And the fact that a girl from Belgium, who's native language isn't English but Dutch, can find these errors, isn't a good sign. So, yeah. That annoyed me. xD My conclusion:Although it's not one of my favorites, once I was reading I enjoyed reading it. I wasn't hooked to the story, so yeah. I will be reading the sequel, maybe the things I didn't like in this part, will be better in the next. I have to read 3 other books first, but I will get to it soon enough.
