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.

It started out rather cliche, with the mean girl Kez and her band of skinny, popular friends cheering her on. Their target is the overweight Jess, who has low self esteem and suicidal tendencies.

Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick Review: Snowy problematic thriller

Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick Review: Snowy problematic thriller

Black Ice is a chilling thriller set in the snowy mountains of Wyoming. After reading Hush, Hush, the first book I’ve ever wanted to throw across the room, I thought I’d give Becca Fitzpatrick another chance in a different genre. Black Ice had a thrilling, foreboding atmosphere, with Britt and Korbie hiking through the mountains […]
