Crocodile Tears, by Anthony Horowitz (Alex Rider reread #8)

“A very wise man once defined charity in the following way. He said it was poor people in rich countries giving money to rich people in poor countries.” It turns out that I didn't remember anything that happened in this book, but on the reread I absolutely loved it? A brilliant entry into the series … Continue reading Crocodile Tears, by Anthony Horowitz (Alex Rider reread #8)

That's a remarkably short amount of time for a fourteen year old … Continue reading Scorpia, by Anthony Horowitz (Alex Rider reread #5)
