Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi

Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi

Reviews 0 ★★★

I'm reading this long, long after I've read Unravel Me, which I think is both a positive and a negative. A positive because I'm not hankering to know what happens next, but a negative because the experience of reading Unravel Me would have been richer for knowing what this novella contains.

Destroy Me isn't enough to make me switch to Team Warner: in fact, when it comes to this series my feet are firmly planted in Team No-one. Although I loved Adam in the first book, his character failed to impress me in the sequel. And I don't think I'll...

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

A perfect, exhilarating blend of fantasy, dystopia and science fiction, The Bone Season is one of the must-read books of 2013. There’s no other way to say it – this is as close to a perfect book as I’ve ever read. The voice of the narrative is the first thing…

The Ward by Jordana Frankel

The Ward by Jordana Frankel

Reviews 0 ★★

The idea behind this book is interesting, and I think I could have enjoyed it a lot more if it didn’t suffer from the weird, stilted romance, and the shaky world building. The Ward is a dystopian novel that takes mixes two staples of mankind’s story-telling – the Great Flood…

I thought it couldn’t get any better than The Immortal Rules. I was wrong. The Eternity Cure blew me away, I read it quickly, feverishly, my heart pumping and my mind racing as I tried to anticipate every twist and turn. Allison is out to save her sire, Kanin, who…

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

I’ve had this book for a long time, and I didn’t read it because I was sick of dystopias. But once I started it, less than 24 hours ago, I couldn’t put it down. Lots of novels these days get tagged “perfect for fans of The Hunger Games” and usually, it’s…

I was pleasantly surprised by The Farm: I wasn’t expecting to be quite as thrilling and enjoyable as it is. Well constructed and delivered, The Farm was let down by the narrow-mindedness of its main character. During their six month imprisonment in The Farm, Lily has been taking care of…
