My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins

My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins

Reviews 2 ★★★★★

My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories is one of the cutest anthologies I have ever read. Featuring talented YA authors like Stephanie Perkins (who has also edited the anthology), Laini Taylor, Holly Black and Rainbow Rowell, this book will steal your heart! All the short-stories have Christmas, holidays and romance in common, and all of them will touch readers in some way.

Midnights by Rainbow Rowell

Blood Will Follow is a solid second novel and I have enjoyed it. Fans of Gemmell will devour Kristjansson’s books, and I think they’re perfect for fantasy readers who are looking for something new to read. Vikings, mythology, politics, and swords – what could go wrong?

Hold on Tight revitalised my love of this group of friends from this tight-knit coastal town, and it’s been amazing to get to know Dewayne better after so many books of him teasing us with his story.

Monsters by Ilsa J. Bick

Monsters by Ilsa J. Bick

Reviews 2

I feel horrible because this is a brilliant series that examines a lot of issues that YA usually shies away from, and I have looked forward to it. I don’t have the time to re-read Ashes and Shadows and I’m not enjoying Monsters, so I’ll be leaving Alex and the gang at page 100.

Binary by Stephanie Saulter

Binary by Stephanie Saulter

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

The sequel to Gemsigns has blown me away. Binary is grander and more sophisticated than its predecessor, but lacks none of its heart and brilliance. Binary accomplishes what few sequels do in surpassing its predecessor in every way.

Corruption by Jessica Shirvington

Corruption by Jessica Shirvington

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

An absolutely brilliant conclusion to the story that began in Disruption, Corruption takes us deep into the heart of the sickness that is M-Corp and the technology they use to control and subdue American citizens and the world at large.
