Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Reviews 3 ★★★★★

I don't know what to do with myself right now. I can't wrap my head around the fact that the Starbound series is over. These Broken Stars had a huge impact on me - I loved it from the first page and the sequel was more glorious than I'd ever expected. So of course, I approached Their Fractured Light with extreme wariness. I hate saying goodbye to things I love. As usual, it is the characters that really MAKE this book for me. Sofia Quinn is ... ugh ... I just wanted to hug her! She's an amazing con artist,...

Marked by Sue Tingey

Marked by Sue Tingey

Reviews 1 ★★

I feel oddly duped by Marked. I was expecting a paranormal-urban fantasy with some detective/crime vibes, and what I got was a paranormal romance that reminded me of the Merry Gentry books by Laurell K. Hamilton.

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

Reviews 4 ★★★★

I found a lot to like in Glass Sword. It wasn’t perfect, but it was a stronger sequel by far. It rose above the admittedly low bar that Red Queen had set. A good sequel that builds and expands on the foundations of its predecessor.

Those Above by Daniel Polansky

Those Above by Daniel Polansky

Reviews 1 ★★★★

Firstly, isn’t that cover gorgeous? It’s what drew me to Those Above in the first place, that beautiful cover with a giant sword that screamed Read Me. And I was further enthralled when I read the synopsis. A human uprising against the Gods? Sign me up. I really enjoyed Those Above. It has moments of brilliance where it transcends expectations, and at all other times is an entertaining and glorious read. I can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel!

The Next Together by Lauren James

The Next Together by Lauren James

Reviews 1 ★★★★

I’m a sucker for reincarnation stories, so I’ve been looking forward to reading this since I heard about it. I loved The Next Together – the concept is amazing and the execution is brilliant! I loved every moment of my time with all the different versions of Katherine and Matthew. The Next Together transcends the traditional boundaries of genre to give readers a unique story.

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Reviews 4 ★★★★★

Iluminae has to be one of the cleverest books I’ve read in a long time. It’s a brilliantly crafted story that has everything – a terrifying AI, an interstellar war, explosions in space, romance, and dark humour. With its gorgeous artwork and unusual presentation, Iluminae is a feast for the eyes. It’s a vivid, emotional, exciting read that will hook most readers.
