This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Everything we loved in These Broken Stars, the YA science fiction novel that has taken the genre by storm, is present in full force in This Shattered World. This sequel is amazing, and I am again left in awe at the world and characters that Kaufman and Spooner have created.

There's a new world to discover, new characters to get to know, a new romance blossoming in the unlikeliest of places, but This Shattered World has the same meticulous plotting and attention to detail that made These Broken Stars so amazing. It's stylistically similar: told in alternating point of view...

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

Reviews 2 ★★★½

Cloud Atlas is ridiculously clever. It’s a sweeping narrative that takes us from the 1800s to a distant post-apocalyptic future, following six different stories along the way. By turns brilliant and over-reaching, and I liked some aspects of it and loathed others.

This Night So Dark by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

This Night So Dark by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Reviews 2 ★★★★★

This Night So Dark tells us how Tarver became a Major in the army, and why he was all over the news when we met him in These Broken Stars. Tarver and Lilac, who are living together after the events of These Broken Stars, are talking about that eventful night because Tarver still has nightmares about it. And in the retelling, they realise that those events are connected to the crash of the Icarus and all that happened afterwards.

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

I loved everything about A Thousand Pieces of You! It’s a beautiful book and I know I’ll spend a lot of time raving about it. I don’t think I can accurately express how much I loved this book. You’ll just have to grab yourself a copy and experience the awesome yourself.

Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris

Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris

Reviews 1 ★★★★½

I loved Unbreakable! I can’t believe it took me so long to pick it up 🙁 I think I was scared that the sequel couldn’t possibly live up to Unravelling, but it did!! Perfect for fans of science fiction, Unravelling isn’t a book to miss. I really, really hope there’s another book.

Eight by James Phelan

Eight by James Phelan

Reviews 0 ★★★

Another quick read from James Phelan, Eight slips back into the formulaic writing of the earlier instalments of the series. Sam’s adventures are getting darker and the world is becoming more dangerous for Dreamers.

Cured by Bethany Wiggins

Cured by Bethany Wiggins

Reviews 0 ★★★

Cured has been an anticipated read for me ever since I read, and enjoyed, Stung earlier this year. Although I wasn’t expecting the change in protagonist, I think it worked well once I got over the fact that I wasn’t going to be in Fiona’s head again.
