• REVIEW: Crow Moon by Anna McKerrow

    23 February, 2015

    When you first hold a copy of your most anticipated read of the year in your hands, it fills you with dread. You think to yourself: will I like it? What if I hate it? Sometimes, though, you’ve just got to have a little faith. In McKerrow’s debut novel, the world is split in two.…

  • REVIEW: Love Hurts, edited by Malorie Blackman

    9 February, 2015

    Recently I’ve loved reading anthologies, such as My True Love Gave To Me, edited by Stephanie Perkins, so when I came across Love Hurts I knew I wanted to read it. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. Here are just a few reasons why: The majority of the book was made up…

  • REVIEW: Half Bad by Sally Green

    2 February, 2015

    I’ve owned a copy of Half Bad since it was released and have since wanted to read it regularly. I’m not entirely sure what was stopping me – possibly the huge buzz surrounding it – but I wish I had started to read it as soon as I bought it. In a version of modern…

  • REVIEW: The Rain by Virginia Bergin

    30 January, 2015

    I’ve heard amazing things about The Rain in the past, but it wasn’t until I attended an event where Bergin spoke that I knew that I had to read it right away. Whilst I often don’t willingly choose to read dystopia and don’t actively seek it out, there was something about The Rain that urged…

  • REVIEW: The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury

    26 January, 2015

    Now, as The Sin Eater’s Daughter begins to emerge into the wild, I feel a burning pride every time I see someone tweet or write about it. The feeling that comes with, ‘MY FRIEND HAS WRITTEN A BOOK!!’ and a book that I have been waiting to read for months and months. Twylla is seventeen…

  • REVIEW: The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaimain & Chris Riddell

    16 January, 2015

    I read The Sleeper and the Spindle one evening near Christmas and I became totally absorbed. For the half an hour or so I spent reading it, all of me was invested in the characters and plot as the story weaved on. It’s hard to perfectly describe The Sleeper and the Spindle and do it justice at the same…

  • REVIEW: The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson

    12 January, 2015

    The buzz around the release of The Art of Being Normal has been crazy! So many of my trusted friends and fellow reviewers have loved it so the pressure was on when I chose to read it myself. Williamson has created a novel I wish had been written years ago. It’s incredibly brave – I…

  • Me and Mr J by Rachel McIntyre

    9 January, 2015

    I was so excited when I received a copy of Me and Mr J to review because I’ve loved the sound of it since it first came to my attention a few months ago. A theme I see a lot in YA is privileged characters that come from a rich background and get whatever they…

  • REVIEW: Fashion Assassin by Sarah Sky

    5 January, 2015

    I was a HUGE fan of Sky’s debut novel, Code Red Lipstick, and so I was delighted to read the second instalment, Fashion Assassin. In Fashion Assassin, the stakes are even higher as Jessica Cole works to discover Vectra with the setting of Monaco as a backdrop. With bratty models to guard and a deadly…
