    27 February, 2017

    I didn’t intend to read Unconventional in a day; it just happened. One minute I’d started the first page and the next I was scrambling to find time to read the rest because I rapidly became obsessed. Unconventional is told from the perspective of Lexi Angelo, who has grown up helping her dad with his comic convention business.…

  • REVIEW: This Beats Perfect by Rebecca Denton

    23 February, 2017

    I read contemporary YA for that fuzzy feeling you get in your stomach after you’ve finished reading a book, that satisfying feeling that makes you want to climb inside it and hug all the characters. That is exactly how This Beats Perfect made me feel. Denton perfectly shapes a world where The Keep are the biggest boyband…

  • REVIEW: Nightwanderers by C.J. Flood

    3 June, 2016

    It has been three years since C.J. Flood’s award-winning debut novel, Infinite Sky, was released, which I described as “deep and heartfelt“. In Nightwanderers, Flood returns with her signature emotional read to deliver a book that is guaranteed to grip readers long after they’ve put it down. Nightwanderers is a story of friendship and family, centred…
