Unmade by Sarah Rees Brennan

Unmade by Sarah Rees Brennan

Reviews 0 ★★★★½

Brennan's third instalment in the Lynburn Legacy takes us on a journey to uncover the deepest, darkest secrets of Sorry-in-the-Vale and overcome the biggest threat the village has seen in centuries.

What I love most about this series is the way that the story sways between poignant character moments and zinging one-liners. Like the earlier books, Unmade is darkly funny. The cleverly delivered humour was responsible for waking up my husband more than once while I read this at night, trying to stifle my giggles. I think it's a perfect way to counter the horrible, heart-wrenching things that happen in...

A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

I loved everything about A Thousand Pieces of You! It’s a beautiful book and I know I’ll spend a lot of time raving about it. I don’t think I can accurately express how much I loved this book. You’ll just have to grab yourself a copy and experience the awesome yourself.

The Child Eater by Rachel Pollack

The Child Eater by Rachel Pollack

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

The Child Eater is a fantastical story about two boys, born in different worlds and centuries apart, who are bound together by magic and fate, and a monstrous creature known only as The Child Eater. He has preyed on generations of children and their ghostly voices cry out for help, cry out for someone to end their curse.

Talon by Julie Kagawa

Talon by Julie Kagawa

Reviews 1 ★★★

This book is about dragons! DRAGONS!! How excite!! I’m really disappointed with it because Kagawa did incredible things by subverting everything we knew about vampires and dystopia with The Blood of Eden series, but in Talon we’ve gone back to mediocre (and annoying) characters and shaky world-building that made me dislike the Iron Fey books.

Countdown by Michelle Rowen

Countdown by Michelle Rowen

Reviews 2 ★★

At first glance Countdown looks and sounds too similar to The Hunger Games. But I was pleasantly surprised that the two are can be easily separated (the dystopian and kill-people-for-an-audience elements aside).

Twelve by T.M. Franklin

Twelve by T.M. Franklin

Reviews 0 ★★★★

Twelve rounds out Ava’s journey admirably, and although I am sad to let her go, I have enjoyed every moment of my time with her and Caleb. This is the kind of paranormal fantasy I love to read, and I’ll be looking out for Franklin’s future works with great interest.

The Professional by Kresley Cole

The Professional by Kresley Cole

Reviews 0 ★★

If you like this kind of story, give it a go. I don’t like this kind of story so it’s hard for me to even tell if it’s a good example of what it is. But my gut feeling is there are stories like this that are of a higher standard.
