Every Move by Ellie Marney

Every Move by Ellie Marney

Reviews 1 ★★★★

The last instalment of Ellie Marney’s Every series has left me conflicted and sad. Although it’s hard to say good-bye to Mycroft and Watts, it’s probably for the best because I didn’t really like the way this book turned out.

Every Word by Ellie Marney

Every Word by Ellie Marney

Reviews 2 ★★★★★

We take up with Mycroft and Watts some eight weeks after Every Breath, when news from London sets a new sleuthing adventure in motion for the troubled duo. Every Word is a gripping crime-thiller that builds on the foundations laid down in Every Breath, and is every bit as exciting and engaging as its predecessor.

Panic by Lauren Oliver

Panic by Lauren Oliver

Reviews 1 ★★★★

I didn’t really know what I was getting into when I started to read Panic, but only one chapter in I knew the book had its hooks in me. The narration is brilliant, the premise is thrilling and haunting at the same time, and the characters are real in a way rarely seen in books.

United We Spy by Ally Carter

United We Spy by Ally Carter

Reviews 0

The end of an era, the final book of the Gallagher Girls series. Covert operations, swooning, bullets (and blood) and danger are everywhere, but I’m kind of just glad the series is over. Actually, United We Spy was a pleasure to read – much more serious and fast-paced than the…

Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter

Reviews 1

We left Cammie Morgan at the end of the last book as she left the Gallagher Academy (a school for spies in training) to track down the people who were hunting her. It was a strong, definitive ending, and I was looking forward to an action-packed thriller. What I got…
