Giveaway & Review: Brew by David Estes – Post-apocalyptic Witches

Giveaway & Review: Brew by David Estes – Post-apocalyptic Witches

You know how Angelfall broke the barrier for every angel book ever, bringing the post-apocalyptic genre into the mix with the overused angel genre? Brew does exactly the same for witches, and turns them from warty frog turning hags into scary, spell wielding, terrifying creatures who are wiping out the world from their war – Salem’s Revenge. Brew fulfils my thirst […]

Dystopian YA Reviews #1 – Afterworlds by Scott Westerfield & The Jewel by Amy Ewing

Dystopian YA Reviews #1 – Afterworlds by Scott Westerfield & The Jewel by Amy Ewing

Michelle’s Thoughts SCOTT WESTERFIELD IS GENIUS—if you didn’t know that already. Afterworlds was fantastic. Scott Westerfield truly captured the image of two point of views; what it’s like to be a writer and what it’s like to be written about. What YA book can you think of that brings you through a young author’s experience of writing a […]

Three secret heiress sisters arriving in the city for the first time? That’s a world that’s definite clung to partying and wild romance. Now that I’ve finally gotten a […]

ARC Review: Panic by Lauren Oliver Review – Concerned parents need not apply

ARC Review: Panic by Lauren Oliver Review – Concerned parents need not apply

Panic is every parent’s worse nightmare. Teenagers risking their lives for a dangerous game, resulting in danger, death and destruction. From jumping off a high ridge, to starting house fires, blowing up cars, to a pot luck with a loaded gun, the stupidity prevails until the very last pages of the book. And for what? […]

ARC Review: Avalon by Mindee Arnett Review – A true galactic adventure

ARC Review: Avalon by Mindee Arnett Review – A true galactic adventure

Looking for a great sci-fi YA novel but haven’t found it yet? Avalon is the space adventure you’ve been looking for. With space ships, metatech, sci-fi technology, galactic stops and an ultimate villain, I thoroughly enjoyed Avalon for my sci-fi fix. Jeth Seagrave and his crew work for Hammer, a boss  as unscrupulous as they come, […]

Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead ARC Review: A complex brain burner

Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead ARC Review: A complex brain burner

For a futuristic society, Gameboard of the Gods is definitely not progressive. In a world of religious extremists,  RUNA (Republic of United North America) have established themselves as the superior state where their attitude, technology and lifestyle is clearly ‘better’ than others. Here, you’d encounter extreme castal segregation between the plebians (residents of RUNA) and […]
