Fairest by Marissa Meyer

Fairest by Marissa Meyer

Reviews 0 ★★★★½

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.

People have either forgotten or glorified the past in these books, and getting the events first hand from Levana changed my perceptions on many things. For example, everyone thinks of Levana as a horrible person who killed Princess Selene for the throne, and something people even suggest she may have had a hand in killing her...

My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins

My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins

Reviews 2 ★★★★★

My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories is one of the cutest anthologies I have ever read. Featuring talented YA authors like Stephanie Perkins (who has also edited the anthology), Laini Taylor, Holly Black and Rainbow Rowell, this book will steal your heart! All the short-stories have Christmas, holidays and romance in common, and all of them will touch readers in some way.

Blood Will Follow by Snorri Kristjansson

Blood Will Follow by Snorri Kristjansson

Reviews 0 ★★★★

Blood Will Follow is a solid second novel and I have enjoyed it. Fans of Gemmell will devour Kristjansson’s books, and I think they’re perfect for fantasy readers who are looking for something new to read. Vikings, mythology, politics, and swords – what could go wrong?

Monsters by Ilsa J. Bick

Monsters by Ilsa J. Bick

Reviews 2

I feel horrible because this is a brilliant series that examines a lot of issues that YA usually shies away from, and I have looked forward to it. I don’t have the time to re-read Ashes and Shadows and I’m not enjoying Monsters, so I’ll be leaving Alex and the gang at page 100.

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.

Shatterwing by Donna Maree Hanson

Shatterwing by Donna Maree Hanson

Reviews 0 ★★★★

Shatterwing is the first novel in the Dragon Wine series, which is set on a world which used to have two moons until one of them (called Ruel) broke and crashed into the planet. Now there is one moon (Belle), and fragments of Ruel span the sky and occasionally fall out of orbit to impact on the planet. Intelligent life has regressed, partly because of the devastating effects of the planet-satellite impact, and partly because the impact seems to have introduced a species into the world: dragons.

The Child Eater by Rachel Pollack

The Child Eater by Rachel Pollack

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

The Child Eater is a fantastical story about two boys, born in different worlds and centuries apart, who are bound together by magic and fate, and a monstrous creature known only as The Child Eater. He has preyed on generations of children and their ghostly voices cry out for help, cry out for someone to end their curse.
