Out of Control is a heart-stopping adventure that will have you on the edge of your seat from the first chapter. It includes Alderson’s trademark action and amazing characters and takes on an issue rarely seen in YA fiction. I love how realistic the characters are. On the surface Liva’s…

Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris

I loved Unbreakable! I can’t believe it took me so long to pick it up :( I think I was scared that the sequel couldn’t possibly live up to Unravelling, but it did!! Perfect for fans of science fiction, Unravelling isn’t a book to miss. I really, really hope there’s another book.

The Falcon Throne by Karen Miller

The Falcon Throne by Karen Miller

Reviews 2 ★★★★★

I’ve loved The Falcon Throne! I’ve been in a haze since I finished it, and I just want to buy lots of copies of it and make others read it. However, at over 500 pages, there’s no doubt that it’s going to challenge some readers! I think fans of the genre will fall in love with this world and its characters and, like me, will be begging to get their hands on the next instalment.

Come Back to Me by Mila Gray

Come Back to Me by Mila Gray

Reviews 0 ★★★★½

Come Back to Me is my favourite kind of NA story. It’s about more than just a hot romance. It’s about family and friends and dreams and love in all its incarnations. I think it’s a beautiful story and have really enjoyed reading it!

The Awakening by Adina West

The Awakening by Adina West

Reviews 0 ★★★½

The Awakening is an enjoyable read, but honestly nothing like I’d expected it to be! It is, however, essential reading if you’re thinking of picking up Coven’s Rising, and I think fans of paranormal stories will like it.

Take Me On by Katie McGarry

Take Me On by Katie McGarry

Reviews 1 ★★

Take Me On felt very samey – it felt like Crash Into You with mixed martial arts instead of drag racing. In fact, it didn’t really even feel like Crash Into You because I believed where Crash Into You was coming from and I found this whole book utterly unbelievable.

Kalona’s Fall by P.C. and Kristin Cast

Kalona’s Fall by P.C. and Kristin Cast

Reviews 4 ★½

P.C Cast and Kristin Cast have been writing full length novels since 2007 (I did a Goodreads search), so there is really no excuse for how poorly written this novella is. The dialogue is artificial, the storytelling confused, and the novella comes across as laboured.
