ARC Book Review: League of Strays by L.B. Schulman

Publisher: Amulet Publishing Date: October 1 2012 Genre: YA, thriller, contemporary Format: e-ARC Page count: 288 (paperback) My rating: League of Strays delivers an interesting, twisted concept that leaves a distinct impression of distaste in one’s mouth all wrapped up in a nicely decorated book cover. The cover art is intensely accurate – from the pose of the two models, the uncertain, […]

ARC Book Review: Shift by Kim Curran

Publisher: Strange Chemistry Publishing Date: September 4 2012 Genre: YA, sci-fi Format: e-ARC Page count: 416 (paperback) My rating: Shift’s opening pages did not endear itself to me. I read the prologue, which was a huge hypothetical ‘have you ever wondered?’ and frankly said NO, I HAVE NOT. PISS OFF, BOOK. So I put it down for a few weeks. […]
