A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray Review: Alternate Realities Explored

A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray Review: Alternate Realities Explored

Just imagine, every choice or decision you make leading to a different dimension or alternate reality. This concept of multi-verses or alternate realities is not new, but the way A Thousand Pieces of You explored it was a breath of fresh air. A Thousand Pieces of You caters to the intellectual reader with the rich science background of the […]

Corruption by Jessica Shirvington Review: Taking M-Corp Down

Corruption by Jessica Shirvington Review: Taking M-Corp Down

The smashing conclusion to the hit sci-fi series where relationships with others are dictated by M-band technology was exhilarating and action-packed. Corruption picks up exactly where Disruption left off, without a recap of events or people. It all comes back quickly though, with Maggie’s kick ass attitude, her smarmy best friend Gus and the betrayed lover Quentin all […]

Falling into Place by Amy Zhang Review: The science of a suicide attempt

Falling into Place by Amy Zhang Review: The science of a suicide attempt

Falling into Place is like the readable version of Tease. I couldn’t get through Tease, purely because it was from the perspective of a bully who drove someone to suicide. In this book, we get different perspectives both from the bully herself, her friends, her boyfriend and guy who is crushing on her. While there were many cliches, what […]

AUS Giveaway & Review: Four: A Divergent Collection By Veronica Roth

AUS Giveaway & Review: Four: A Divergent Collection By Veronica Roth

Just when I thought Divergent was over, the Four: A Divergent Collection shares his story like we’ve never heard before. I wasn’t a fan of Four’s perspective in Allegiant, because that wasn’t the Four that we had come to know through Tris. He was vulnerable and full of self-doubt, and it was a surprise to see that side of […]

Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop Review: Family of Monsters & a Blood Prophet

Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop Review: Family of Monsters & a Blood Prophet

After the fantastically unique urban fantasy Written in Red, I am pleased to say that The Murder of Crows lived up to the first book and delves even deeper into a world where monsters co-exist with humans….but only barely. In Murder of Crows, The Others or the terra indigene are struggling to maintain control with the humans, as one […]

The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White Review: Egyptian gods & goddesses with angst

The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White Review: Egyptian gods & goddesses with angst

The Chaos of the Stars is a book that I really wanted to love, but sadly didn’t. It is set in Egypt which is pretty much my favourite dream destination ever, and features Egyptian gods and goddesses, with the main character, Isadora as a daughter of Isis and Osiris. Unfortunately, something about the light, quirky re-imagining of […]

Written in Red by Anne Bishop: Sink your Teeth into this Meaty Paranormal

Written in Red by Anne Bishop: Sink your Teeth into this Meaty Paranormal

Written in Red is not a paranormal book where the creature falls in love with a heroine. Instead, it convincingly portrays the creatures of the night as actual monsters who want to eat people, which was completely refreshing. Written in an immersive world where these creatures and humans live together under a strict agreement, I loved […]
