A different twist of a fairy tale

I loved this book, so much better than the original fairy tale. In your classic Cinderella, she gets nothing to deserve the prince's love, except look beautiful and be pretty. Where as in Cinder, she does everything to deserve it, she works hard and earns her pay, she's intelligent, and...

Loved this Book!!!

The Girl in the Clockwork Collar is a brilliant sequel to the amazing book, The Girl in the Steel Corset. All my favourite characters are back again, Griffin, Finley, Jasper, Emily and Sam, and they are just as great, if not better. I love the writing style, as we get...

Best Vampire Book Ever!!!!

This has to be the best vampire book ever. No undead boyfriends, or bloody cross-species relationships, just pure survival and terror. Why I Loved This Book So Much: The Hunt is a brilliant book because the vampires act like real vampires would act, like real monsters....

An amazing prequel!!!!!

When I finished reading the Nightshade books, i couldn't believe it was all over, I was basically in tears because it ended. You cannot even start to believe my relief to know there was a prequel, and a prequel with a sequel!!! In Rift, instead of...

The Not so Great Goddess Test....

The first thing I have to say is that this book is a let-down. The characters are poor, the writing style even more so. The plot seemed okay on the blurb, but the romance was dry, and the tests that I desperately wanted Kate to do well on were completely...

A book of pure awesome!!!

This book blew me into infinity and beyond, it was just amazing. The plot, the characters, the writing style, were all past the five star limit, reaching to eleven and further. I loved every part of this book, every twist and turn, every hill or valley, it was awesome. ...

The Unnaturalists

The Unnaturalists is a different type of steampunk to your usual type. It is set in a different world, where the original London was magically transported to a new world, full of magical creatures like Sphinxes and Manticores. This book has a combination of magic and science, which allows it...

Not as good as Variant....

I must say, Feedback is nothing compared to Variant, absolutely nothing. I guess that's why it was so cheap in the book shop, because it wasn't that good.... Feedback was so disappointing compared to Variant. There was hardly anything to it. At the start, Benson had to...

Another great book from Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven Boys is very different to the other books that Maggie Stiefvater normally writes. Although the blurb definitely suggest otherwise, with the true love dying and all that, but love isn't that important in this book compared to Shiver or Lament. It's partly because Blue doesn't want to love...

NOOOOOOOOO, STUPID CLIFFHANGER

I'm really angry with you Mr Riordan, you are a cruel, cruel, CRUEL author. Now I have to wait an age for the next book to come out, GREAT (throws arms up in air with despair). And what makes it worse is that you threw in the cliffhanger, and a...
