September 10, 2013 Blog Tour 0

Hey guys!

Rosie Best, whose début novel Skulk will be published next month through Strange Chemistry, is joining us today for a guest post. She'll be telling us a few things that we wouldn't otherwise know about her protagonist, Meg. But first, a little bit about her book!

Five Things You Didn't Know About Meg Banks

1. She doesn't really have a favourite kind of music

This one freaked me out a little bit when I realised it, because I don't think I've ever written a character who didn't have a fairly strong musical opinion before! Meg’s a much more...

Banish by Nicola Marsh

Banish by Nicola Marsh

August 5, 2013 Reviews 0

Banish is Nicola Marsh’s début YA novel, a who-done-it mystery combined with Wiccan supernatural elements that kept me engaged and amused throughout. I liked the novel a lot, and although I think the story is perfect on its own, wouldn’t mind a follow-up book or two! The YA aspect of…

Life After Theft by Aprilynne Pike

Life After Theft by Aprilynne Pike

July 30, 2013 Reviews 0

This is the first book I’ve read by Pike, and if it’s indicative of her writing, I’ll definitely be back for more! Life After Theft is a hilarious, expectedly emotional read that grabbed me from the very first page. I appreciate that the book isn’t part of a series, because…

Ink by Amanda Sun

July 11, 2013 Reviews 5

I am never going to pick up a book because of its cover again. It serves me right, it really does. Do you know how excited I was about Ink? It is probably the YA début I anticipated the most in 2013, I’m even on a video saying it’s the…

Ember X by Jessica Sorensen

Ember X by Jessica Sorensen

June 14, 2013 Reviews 2

This version the book is an extended new adult edition of the YA release Ember, but I found the new parts clumsy and ultimately unnecessary. Which is not to say that I think I would have enjoyed the original YA version much better – this book has a premise that has…

Everbound by Brodi Ashton

Everbound by Brodi Ashton

June 4, 2013 Reviews 0 ★★★★

Coming from a place of not having particularly loved Everneath, I have to say that Everbound is in many ways a stronger, more nuanced book. The character development is amazing, the plotting is tight, and the action is riveting. I really liked it, and can’t wait for more. Nikki’s single-minded pursuit of Jack could…

April 11, 2013 Reviews 0 ★★★★½

I think the blurb of this book really doesn’t sell it – I put off reading it until I read Mandee’s review, and when I found out she enjoyed it, I decided to give it a chance. I’m so glad I did, and also sad that I left it so…
