The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand Review: Moving on after suicide

The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand Review: Moving on after suicide

There’s been an influx of YA books about suicide lately, and I was skeptical about picking this one up after reading I Was Here and All the Bright Places. But The Last Time We Say Goodbye set itself apart with the authenticity of Lexxie’s feelings and character relationships, and I’m really glad I read it. If there’s anything that really stood out, it was […]

The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski Review: Bigger and Better

The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski Review: Bigger and Better

You know that feeling you get when you reach the end of a book and expel a satisfied, warm and happy breath? That was me upon finishing The Winner’s Crime, despite the cliffhanger ending which left everything in an unresolved state. This has been a year of amazing sequels, with The Winner’s Crime building upon the foundation of the […]

Dreamfire by Kit Alloway Review: The Science of Dreams

Dreamfire by Kit Alloway Review: The Science of Dreams

So you’re probably wondering what I ended up doing with Dreamfire with it’s slow and draggy pace. I was about halfway through until I started skimming, but I’m glad I didn’t DNF it because the ending was satisfying. The setting was really interesting. Dream walkers are trained to enter nightmares and to resolve or end their dreams to reduce […]

Unwanted by Amanda Holohan Review: Unique but slow dystopian

Unwanted by Amanda Holohan Review: Unique but slow dystopian

I really wanted to like Unwanted, as a dystopian by an Australian author, and while it had some unique elements to it, I couldn’t quite get into it. I’m always gunning for a unique dystopian that isn’t like The Hunger Games or Divergent, and Unwanted definitely delivered in that respect. From the sinister Erebii monsters with yellow eyes, to a crow’s […]

You by Caroline Kepnes Review: A Story of Stalker Obsession

For a 21st century woman, there is nothing scarier than a stalker breaking into your home and knowing everything about you. You takes it further by finding out absolutely everything he can about Beck, by going through her phone, reading her emails, and watching her through her window and then becoming her lover. You gives us so much more […]

The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead Review: A Perfect Goodbye

The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead Review: A Perfect Goodbye

Contains spoilers for the previous books in the series.  What a fun ending to the Bloodlines series! It was a wonderfully fitting ending for our favourite vampire/alchemist couple and the cast of our beloved moroi and dhampir characters. I’m so proud of how far Sydney and Adrian have come since the very beginning. Sydney has opened up so […]

Double Review: Kiss the Sky and Hothouse Flower by Krista & Becca Ritchie

Double Review: Kiss the Sky and Hothouse Flower by Krista & Becca Ritchie

I’ve got one word to describe this book: HOT HOT HOT. Rose and Connor are a fiery, passionate couple who seem to be on a different plane to everyone else, and Kiss the Sky demystifies this power couple. They lay everything to bare and even disclose a few vulnerabilities in their point of view, Rose, with her […]
