Mini Reviews #2 – Pandora Jones Reckoning, The Potion Diaries & Afterlight

Mini Reviews #2 – Pandora Jones Reckoning, The Potion Diaries & Afterlight

This Aussie YA read is a mix between psychological thriller and dystopian, and I’m glad I ended up sticking through the series with Reckoning. Pan has learnt to harness her abilities for the greater good, convincing the student body that they need to escape. She really grows in her confidence and her ability to convince people, and I liked […]

Challenger Deep by Neal Schusterman Review: Diving into Schizophrenia

Challenger Deep is not an easy read. But schizophrenia is not an easily understood illness. The book outlines the delusions, anxiety and paranoia which a schizophrenia sufferer experiences, at their worst, and it serves as a confronting and elegant look into a feared and misunderstood mental illness. I’m a big fan of books that tackle mental illness sensitively […]
