Fun and exciting

The Titan’s Curse raises the stakes, the tension and the adventure by a tenfold. I could not tear my eyes away from the page to save my life. The third novel in the Percy Jackson series picks up a few months after the conclusion of The Sea...

A surprisingly fun, witty and comical novel

I’m sure we all have that book on our to-be-read lists, a book that you constantly stare at thinking, “I really need to read you,” but the timing is just not right. The Lightning Thief is that book for me. I think this novel has been on my TBR list...

Intricate and unique

The third CoHo book I have read, Confess is an intricately unique novel that I could not put down. Colleen Hoover has a gift for contemporary romance and I love to immerse myself in her stories, over and over again. Confess follows Auburn Reed, a twenty-one year...

Tragic and compelling

Ugly Love is just as its title suggests: it is an ugly story about two irrecoverably different people who have nothing in common aside from an aversion to relationships. At times, this book was difficult to read and I was full sobbing for the last quarter. Tate...

Majorly disappointing and confusing

I was quite disappointed with Stealing Snow. Usually, I adore retellings, especially those with an interesting twist, but in this novel there was a clash of so many fairy-tale retellings, I couldn't wrap my head around anything. It was an amalgamation of The Snow Queen, Snow White, Frozen and Alice...

Surprisingly compelling and beautiful

Anything Can Happen is the debut novel of author Will Walton and it was an absolute treat. Every scene had me engrossed with the story and I genuinely had a really good time reading this book. I usually reserve high ratings for novels that impact me on some sort of...

Amazing and heartbreaking

It Ends With Us was the first Colleen Hoover novel I have ever read and I’m so glad that was the case. Hoover is a massive presence in the contemporary YA community and I thought it was about time I finally sat down to see what all the fuss was...

An incredible and heartbreaking conclusion

I only discovered the phenomenal The Young Elites series a few months ago, so I didn’t have long to wait before I finally got my hands on the final novel in the trilogy, The Midnight Star. Even so, those few months I was forced to wait were pure hell. So...

An astounding conclusion

Leigh Bardugo’s sequel to her Six of Crows duology was one of the most highly anticipated novels of 2016. The expectations were supremely high for this book and Bardugo managed to deliver. I laughed (a lot), I cried (even more) and I gasped and threw my couch cushion against the...

Combining humour and hope, the novel targets the most controversial issues effecting teenagers today: depression and school shootings. Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock is a dark book. Leonard is in a really...

When the Moon Was Ours is a beautiful, surreal novel that effortlessly weaves magical elements within the monotonies of everyday life, love and heartbreak. Anna-Marie McLemore has created a fascinating world that I was totally absorbed in and could not put down. The novel follows best...
