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 […]

Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls by Lynn Weingarten

This was an odd book. The blurb was a bit vague, so I had a pre-conceived notion of the plot before I went in. As it turns out, the plot in the first half of the book was exactly what I’d expected and wanted: a kind of murder mystery, conspiracy-theory whodunnit. Then the second half […]

The List by Siobhan Vivien

A contemporary YA novel set in a school that anonymously releases a ‘list’ every year of eight girls, two per year, detailing them as either the ‘prettiest’ or ‘ugliest’ and the reason why. I was a little apprehensive reaching for The List, because I didn’t really want to read a novel about bullying girls over […]

The Curses (The Graces #2) by Laure Eve

The Curses is the sequel to The Graces, told from the point of view of the youngest Grace sibling, air witch Summer. With the time elapsed between releases, I did re-read The Graces: I planned on doing a light, skimming re-read, but it sucked me in and I really enjoyed it – probably more the […]
