The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab

Although Addie LaRue is not YA, it definitely has some crossover appeal for older YA readers. It’s basically New Adult, similar in tone to For The Wolf (also an adult fantasy with crossover appeal if you consider New Adult isn’t a ‘real’ category, and that I reviewed on this blog), and that’s why I’ve decided […]

The Monster of Her Age by Danielle Binks

Sometimes you find a book that speaks to your soul so personally, it’s as if the author ripped open your chest, dissected your heart under a microscope, found a whole bunch of things you love and identify with, and then wrote a book about it. To say that I understand why representation is important is […]

The Dead Queens Club

In a world where I rarely pick up books for my own reading pleasure – and by that I mean I’m usually so guilt-wracked over my unread ARCs that I have 600 books on my TBR (at least!), I just could not stop thinking about this book. I knew I wanted to read it from […]

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows

I really enjoyed this book. Out of the three authors, I have read and enjoyed previous books by Cynthia Hand and Jodi Meadows, but I’ve never read a Brodi Ashton book yet. Together the three of them combine to something even greater than the sum of their parts: a quick-witted, smartly plotted, adorable historical comedy […]

Geekerella by Ashley Poston

My first Ashley Poston book was Among the Beasts and Briars, so I’m late to the party masquerade ball. Better late than never, right? I figured out pretty quickly that Poston can write, baby. So when I came across Geekerella at my local library, I knew it was highly likely I would enjoy it, especially […]

The Tiger at Midnight by Swati Teerdhala

Don’t you just hate it when you read a book that objectively wasn’t bad, it wasn’t particularly riveting, either? I think I am possibly the wrong audience for this book. Sure, it’s a YA fantasy with a strong female lead, and although I enjoyed it to a point, overall I was not as engaged as […]

Foretold: 14 Tales of Prophecy and Prediction edited by Carrie Ryan

A great collection of interesting and diverse stories all (mostly) revolving around a theme of prophecy, or foretelling, or otherwise predicting the future. I was completely gobsmacked to find two stories in particular had prophecies of their own: Michael Grant’s This is a Mortal Wound mentioned how interesting Hamilton was in 2012, three years before […]

The Invasion (Animorphs Graphix #1) by K.A. Applegate, Michael Grant, and Chris Grine

I’ve already reviewed the source material for this, so I won’t be talking about characterisation, plotting, the action, or anything like that. Why I think this is great for existing Animorphs fans to read is because seeing things these drawings makes everything come flooding back: and yes, I am hugely nostalgic for Animorphs and I […]
