Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

I’ve waited so long for this book, but when I finally got it, I was afraid to start reading – what if it wasn’t as good as Cinder, what if I don’t like Scarlet, is there enough Kai in it? Scarlet, I am ecstatic to say, is just as awesome…

When We Wake by Karen Healey

When We Wake by Karen Healey

Reviews 2 ★★★★

When We Wake is an entertaining novel, a great read, that explores humanity in an honest, chilling manner. There is a lot to like, especially the characters and the terrifying future that seems all too plausible, but I had a few issues with the world building. Tegan’s plight in waking…

Broken by A.E. Rought

Reviews 2

I hate to begin the review like this, but Strange Chemistry really need to work on their blurbs. The one I’ve provided is only half of the one on their site, and the reason I haven’t included it in full is because it basically makes 2/3 of the book redundant….

Shine Light by Marianne de Pierres

Shine Light by Marianne de Pierres

Reviews 2 ★★★★★

Shine Light is very short – I knocked it over in a couple of hours – but packs a mighty punch that I’m reeling from! It’s a poignant and fitting conclusion to The Night Creatures series and admirably brings the adventure to a close. The characters continue their growth and…

The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Reviews 0 ★★★

I enjoyed The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and was hoping that this book would cut down a little on the romance and provide a solid, thrilling plot line to expand on the world it introduced. Creepy, intense and convoluted, I think that while The Evolution of Mara Dyer makes up for the way…
