All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill

All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill

Reviews 2

There's no doubt that All Our Yesterdays is an exhilarating, exciting read that will have you on the edge of your seat. It took me a while to really get into: there are a few characters I didn't initially like and all the 'secrets' seemed really obvious to me. But as the story went on, I realised that this book achieves a level of complexity rarely seen in YA, and I started enjoying myself a little more. It begins with Em, a girl who's in a prison cell, and her companion Finn, who occupies the next cell. They're observed and...

Jaran by Kate Elliott

Jaran by Kate Elliott

Reviews 1

My reluctance to re-read blurbs before beginning a book pays off again! I had no idea what to expect from Jaran, except that I love Kate Elliott’s writing and was looking forward to reading some science fiction by her (having previously only read the Crossroads books). Jaran begins slowly, a…

Action packed and adrenaline fuelled, BZRK is the first Michael Grant novel I’ve read, and all I can say is that I wish I hadn’t waited so long! My favourite aspect of this novel is definitely its grounding in nano-science, and the ways in which Grant makes the nano-world come…

iD: The Second Machine Dynasty by Madeline Ashby

iD: The Second Machine Dynasty by Madeline Ashby

Reviews 0 ★★★

Taking up close to where vN left off, iD follows Javier’s journey to set things right after everything goes wrong on Amy’s island. Although I liked the book well enough, I feel that some of the magic was missing, and I’m not convinced that Javier is as compelling a protagonist…

Transparent by Natalie Whipple

Transparent by Natalie Whipple

Reviews 0

Although I was initially wary of this book, the more I read, the more the story grew on me. I think the story could have been strengthened by paying closer attention to the protagonists’ voice and by taking away some of the more cartoonish aspects of the mafia scene. Fiona…

Once I’d started Altered, I couldn’t put it down! A thrilling ride featuring a secret government organisation and genetic experiments, it’s one of those books that you really enjoy, but once you take a step back you realise a few things didn’t really make sense. Altered features four hunky genetically…

Reboot by Amy Tintera

Reboot by Amy Tintera

Another case of a supposedly kick-butt heroine falling to pieces the first time a cute boy looks in her direction. Although it is based around an awesome idea – young victims of a deadly virus can come back to life and are used by the government as assassins – Reboot…

Gemsigns by Stephanie Saulter

Gemsigns by Stephanie Saulter

Reviews 3 ★★★★★

Gemsigns is a book I didn’t know I was desperate to read until I started it. I’ve been searching for a thoughtful, well-written, science fiction novel for a while, and this book ticks all the boxes, and more. Interestingly enough, Gemsigns isn’t about the uprising or revolution of the genetically engineered humans…
