The Twin by Natasha Preston

Time for a blurb decontruction! That is NOT the book I was promised. Iris didn’t spend the first few weeks in almost total silence, only speaking to Ivy. She jumped right in with the cheerleader crowd and befriending Ivy’s friends. She was a total social butterfly. Ivy absolutely did not promise Iris that they could […]

No Such Person by Caroline B Cooney

While I enjoyed this book, with all the drama and angst, and the setting was beautiful, the atmosphere was heavy with dread, and it did seem suspenseful, I do not really consider it a mystery. I mean sure, someone was murdered, and someone was framed for that murder, but the book didn’t go into investigating […]

The King of Crows (The Diviners #4) by Libba Bray

This series is absolutely outstanding. There is everything to love about it: it’s got an amazing diverse cast of characters I just can’t help but love, the worldbuilding is immersive and influential (I seriously start talking like the characters while I’m listening to the audiobook), the plots are slow and steady enough to draw you […]

Vow of Thieves (Dance of Thieves #2) by Mary E Pearson

First and foremost the thing I loved most about this book is that rather than rehashing the same storytelling technique of having dual points of view telling the same story, Pearson split our couple up early on so that the dual points of view could work together to tell two different stories, which I really […]

Little Monsters by Kara Thomas

After I read The Cheerleaders, I was pretty certain I’d enjoy other Kara Thomas YA mystery/thrillers, so I quickly found Little Monsters available on audiobook at my local library. I was right. I did enjoy Little Monsters a heck of a lot. Thomas has an awesome ability to realistically plot her mysteries to the point […]

Dance of Thieves by Mary E Pearson

I will probably spell everyone’s name wrong since I listened to the audiobook and have pretty much imagined them spelt my way for the whole time I listened to this. So I kinda low key loved this. I felt like I was in really good hands while I listened to this. The narrators were pleasant […]

The Diviners by Libba Bray

The Diviners is a beautifully written tale of 1920s New York and the mysterious gifted people, the Diviners, who inhabit it, when, unknowingly, they stumble across a serial killer leaving behind clues that link the killing spree to the Occult. Evie O’Neill, from Ohio, is an attention-seeking, hard-drinking, party-loving flapper who is shipped off to […]

Give the Dark My Love

I was super excited to read a book about a magical healer facing a plague – even if they call alchemy ‘science’ in this book, it’s totally magic – and this one definitely delivered. It’s about a girl called Nedra (narrated beautifully by Mhairi Morrison with a lovely soft Scottish accent) from a small northern […]
