The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas

I was so intrigued to read this book because it hinted that the deaths of 5 girls on the cheerleading team within a few months of each other was suspicious, and for some reason I was super keen to read about this mystery. I’m not normally into contemporary thrillers/mysteries, so I was surprised at how […]

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

Yes, I am actually going to review Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. (While quietly lamenting that Bloomsbury thought Americans wouldn’t be smart enough to recognise what a philosopher is.) I’ve only read the series once, and it was after each book had been released, so it’s been a long time since I read Philosopher’s […]

Shattered: The Glass Spare by Lauren DeStefano

The Glass Spare tells the fascinating story of a young princess named Wil, the fourth child and only daughter of a powerful and ruthless king, who wants nothing more than to travel the world. When she is attacked she discovers she has the power to turn living things into crystals and gemstones, and she goes […]

Sun Sets on Study Series as Dawn Study Ends

I don’t even know where to start with this book. You know how each instalment of a series is supposed to be more epic than the last? Well, at one point Snyder has something like 28 characters ‘onscreen’, all with different motivations, characterisations, and backstories, including small children with more sass than they have the […]

Sinner: Werewolf in Los Angeles

Sinner: Werewolf in Los Angeles

Maggie Stiefvater’s Sinner is what you get when you really want to write a book about the shitty horribleness of behind the scenes reality TV and you already have the perfect character from a previous series to star in it, a washed-up charismatic teen rock star. Add in a cold and mean yet somehow irresistible […]

Tour Stop: Siren’s Song by Mary Weber

Tour Stop: Siren’s Song by Mary Weber

I absolutely adored the first book in this series, Storm Siren. I found Siren’s Fury, the second book, to be largely a waste of time. However, I had faith that the third book, Siren’s Song, wouldn’t let me down, and I was right. Siren’s Song has a plot that sends Nym and her cohorts all […]

Siren’s Fury by Mary Weber

Siren’s Fury by Mary Weber

Last year I tried to read Siren’s Fury but ended up putting it down halfway through for a few reasons. Back then I didn’t have a co-blogger, so I needed new content and this book was taking too long for me to read. Literally nothing had happened in the plot except that my girl Nym […]

Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined by Stephenie Meyer

Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined by Stephenie Meyer

In Life and Death, Twilight is gender-flipped and we meet Beaufort Swan, who’s moving to Forks to give his childishly erratic mother some space in her new marriage, where he meets the perfectly beautiful Edythe Cullen and her mysterious family, and is drawn into a world and a love that could be the difference between […]
