Aerie by Maria Dahvana Headley

Aerie by Maria Dahvana Headley

Reviews 0 ★★★★

Remember how much I loved Magonia? I waxed lyrical about it, I forced it on my friends, I think I even recommended to it a stranger at my local Dymocks. The wait for Aerie has been agonising, but I finally got my hands on it last week. And it did not disappoint! Told in dual point-of-view, Aerie takes up with Ava and Jason almost a year after Magonia. They've settled into some approximation of normalcy, but how normal can things be when one of you is a bird-hybrid alien and the other an anxiety ridden teen? In many ways, Aerie...

Winter by Marissa Meyer

Winter by Marissa Meyer

Reviews 3 ★★★★★

I’ve had a wonderful, wonderful time with Cinder, Scarlet, Cress and Winter, and I’m sad to let them go … but I do have the novellas in Stars Above to look forward to!

I was lucky enough to be chosen as an advocate for The Bone Season series by Samantha Shannon! A huge thank you to the wonderful folks at Bloomsbury Sydney for choosing me! I honestly didn’t think I’d be picked!

A Tangle of Gold by Jaclyn Moriarty

A Tangle of Gold by Jaclyn Moriarty

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Coming to the end of any series is a bittersweet experience, but reading A Tangle of Gold – the concluding volume in the spellbinding The Colours of Madeleine series – was especially emotional for me. It’s hard to believe that my adventure with Madeleine and Elliot, and my time in Cello and Cambridge, is over.
