Two souls, one great book

What's Left of Me surprised me, it was just brilliant, amazing, awesome and chilling. It has to be one of my favourite books, and I can prove this if you look further up the page to see that I have clicked the "Add to Favourites" button. What's Left of Me...

One of the best books this year!!

This must be one of my favourite books of the year (well last year now, 2012)! I underestimated it by far, and I'm awfully angry at myself for thinking so, but I guess that worked its favour as well, as I was truly blown away. The Darkest Minds is filled...

A heroine that is a famous assassin is just my type of book!!

I knew this would be a brilliant book, considering the amount of positive reviews and compliments it was receiving, as well as the pretty neat cover it has, and the title is eye-grabbing as well. And it is really easy to say that it lives up to my expectations, and...

A nice book, but was a bit dry.

Manhattan lies underwater (one of the only good features of this book). The corrupt rulers of this new city live high above the flood and survive by channelling the energy of the mystics-a magic-wielding underclass who are forced to live amongst the poor in the squalor of the Depths....

Japanese Steampunk

What grabbed my attention while wondering through the bookshop was the amazing front cover. The blood red smoke and gloomy sky works so well together, as well as the girl on the front (Yukiko) with her fox-tailed tattoo and black clothes, and the shining white thunder tiger in the corner....

The Book of Blood and Shadow

The Book of Blood and Shadow blurb was a bit deceiving, I thought it was set in a different time (silly me), and that the main character (Nora) would be in the thick of things, with 'secret societies' and shadowy conspirators', but those things appeared right at the end, and...

Light-hearted and brilliant!!

I loved the Selection, it was way better than I thought it would be. Sooooooooooooo much better. From the cover, it looked like it be very fancy and girly, which I hate, but it was very different from that, but still with touches of that girly magic, as well as...

The Edge of Nowhere

This book was meant to be a mystery book, and I assumed that the main character might make an effort to actually solve the mystery, instead she hid away in a motel and a run-down bar. Becca to me didn't seem a very strong protagonist, she didn't try to do...

Way better than I thought it would be!!!

When I first got Skylark, I thought it would be one of those cheesy books where the world is contained to this one area, and the leaders are like 'killing them silently', and the protagonist has to escape otherwise they are next. Well, it was like that, but it wasn't...

Start=Brilliant Middle=Great-Good Ending=Okay

Defiance was really addictive at the beginning, I was hooked on every page, the characters and plot were well defined. The writing style with the shifting of characters was really well thought out at the beginning, and it was pretty easy to picture Logan and Rachel with the descriptions written....

Assassins=Amazing Book

When I first saw this book, I was drawn to it by some mystic force. I knew I had to get it when I saw the words "His Fair Assassin". I just love assassins ever since reading Poison Study, and this was no let down. I just loved every bit...

I love Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and always will. It has so much humour and laughter poured into it, that it becomes are super funny masterpiece, Jeff Kinney being the artist, of both the words and the pictures. All the cartoons in the book are...
