The Undercurrent by Paula Weston

The Undercurrent by Paula Weston

Reviews 1 ★★★★

It's no secret that I love Paula Weston's books. Her writing has a wonderful flair, and her stories are the perfect balance of humour and action, romance and friendship, adventure and introspection. So you can imagine my excitement when I walked into a bookstore and saw The Undercurrent, only being vaguely aware that a new book was coming sometime in July or August. I devoured The Undercurrent. I would have read it in one sitting except that my health isn't what it used to be. Instead, I read it in three. Jules and Ryan are the kinds of protagonists I...

Winter by Marissa Meyer

Winter by Marissa Meyer

Reviews 3 ★★★★★

I’ve had a wonderful, wonderful time with Cinder, Scarlet, Cress and Winter, and I’m sad to let them go … but I do have the novellas in Stars Above to look forward to! The idea of blending science fiction, fairy tales, and Sailor Moon may sound odd (I was sceptical at first), but I urge readers to give the series a chance. I don’t think you’ll regret it.

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.

Fairest by Marissa Meyer

Fairest by Marissa Meyer

I never thought I’d sympathise with Levana. She’s been this amorphous blob of evil in The Lunar Chronicles for three books, and although I never doubted that her past would make an interesting story, I certainly didn’t think it would make me understand her.

Catalyst by S. J. Kincaid

Catalyst by S. J. Kincaid

Reviews 0 ★★★★

Catalyst is the final instalment of the amazing science fiction series that began with Insignia. Tom Raines faces new challenges in this book and faces them with his usual combination of bravery and brashness.

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 2 ★★★★★

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.

This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

This Shattered World is a perfect follow-up to These Broken Stars, and I don’t think that fans of the latter will be disappointed in the sequel. It has progressed the series arc while introducing us to a new world and new characters, and has set us up for a great final confrontation (which will happen on Corinth).
