Unique and entertaining

These Vicious Masks is everything I love in a novel and more. Victorian society, badass women, dashing heroes, a mystery that needs to be solved, and magic. How could I stop myself from reading a book with so many awesome elements? Short answer: I couldn’t. And I’m glad for it....

Touching and tender

Benjamin Alire Sáenz’s newest novel is an endearing story about the different types of families and what it means to belong and to be loved. The inexplicable Logic of My Life is a beautiful and touching novel that made me question everything I had ever thought about my own family...

A hopeful and charming coming-of-age YA novel

Sarah Tregay’s Fan Art is a hopeful and charming coming-of-age YA novel about the experiences of first love, coming out, and those last, nerve-wracking days of high school that lead to an uncertain future. Readers of all ages will be able to connect with this novel and the characters, no...

Heartbreaking, hopeful and so relevant

Two Boys Kissing is an utterly unique novel, not only in its structure but in its innovative exploration of LGBTQI+ issues. The book is narrated from the perspective of a Greek Chorus of a generation of gay men who perished from AIDS, which increased the poignancy and the impact of...

Hilarious

I love this series more than life itself. Georgia is hilarious and someone we can all relate to. Non-stop laughter and entertainment ahead if you read this book.

Beautiful and heartbreaking

It's easy to see why this became such a hyped up popular novel. It was very well written and the characters were complex and intriguing. It is very easy to read in one sitting, which does not diminish how beautiful the novel is. Green writes amazing,...

Disappointing

This novel is terribly tedious and horrendously written. I never say this, but the movie was far far better. The plot was non-existent and the characters transparent and not fleshed out at all. Nicholas Sparks is very overrated.

Fun, interesting and frightening

I really enjoyed this novel. It is compelling and shows more than you think it does. It's not just a YA novel - its a critique on reality too. Katniss is epic and Peeta was a sweetheart. Gale can go away please. ...

Everything you could want and more

I devoured this novel in one sitting. Uglies is such a unique and compelling sci-fi adventure - it is almost impossible to put down. Tally was an incredible main character and such a great role model. She is one of my top ten book girlfriends. ...

A slow but interesting vampire novel

I read this book when I was fifteen so of course I fell in love with it. Over time, I realised it was not the epic love story I thought it was and it is actually quite problematic (that's more in New Moon though). Bella is...

A hype book that disappointed

Perks of Being a Wallflower is a strange mix of heartbreak, annoyance and tediousness. There were certain enjoyable parts of the novel, but the bad far outweighed the good in this case. The novel follows Charlie, painfully shy, introspective, highly intelligent and socially awkward. He is...

A deliciously creepy novel

I still can’t believe that a novel such as Coraline is marketed and written for children. I was, frankly, terrified all the way through my reading experience, and yet unable to put the novel down. When Coraline moves into a new house with her inattentive parents, she...

A dark look at important issues

If you are a sensitive person or someone who can’t stomach reading about assault, violence and/or drugs and sex, then this is not the book for you. If you are not put off by that stuff (like me), then you will love this book while simultaneously growing angry at the...

An astounding action-packed finale

If there were ever such a thing as a perfect novel, The Last Olympian would be it. The novel was flawless, the action was perpetual and incredible, and everything from the previous novels was tied together and wrapped up neatly. The concluding novel increases the action from...

Suspenseful and amazing

If the previous three novels in the series were amazing, The Battle of the Labyrinth was phenomenal. The adventure was never-ending and the new take on Greek mythology was absolutely fascinating. In the fourth novel, Annabeth and Clarisse have been researching and attempting to locate an entrance...
