Winter by Marissa Meyer

Winter by Marissa Meyer

Reviews 3 ★★★★★

It's taken me a long time to gather the courage to read Winter, mostly because I was terrified I wouldn't enjoy the finale of The Lunar Chronicles (I mean, 4 five-star books in a row? What are the odds?), but also because I didn't want to say goodbye to the characters or the world. But, as usual, Meyer has surpassed my expectations. Winter stands apart from the other books for a number of reasons. This is the first time all eight central characters are together and the first time they step foot on Lunar. But it wasn't the first time...

Half Wild by Sally Green

Half Wild by Sally Green

Reviews 1 ★★★★

Half Wild is the follow-up to Half Bad. This series follows Nathan Byrn, a half-White and half-Black witch in a world where the two hate each other and don’t usually mix. The fact that Nathan’s father is the most notorious and dangerous Black witch in existence doesn’t help the matter.

Girl Online by Zoe Sugg

Girl Online by Zoe Sugg

Reviews 0 ★★½

Girl Online is a light and fluffy story about a teen girl with an anonymous online blog. I was attracted to it because I ALSO HAVE A BLOG, and I thought there’d be all these amazing moments of connection with Penny. However, Girl Online has a very slow and shaky beginning, and although it does improve eventually, it’s not really the kind of book that I enjoy.

Half Bad by Sally Green

Half Bad by Sally Green

Reviews 2 ★★★★

I didn’t go into Half Bad with any preconceived notions about it and was pleasantly surprised by the strong storytelling and characterisation. I think the world needs to be expanded on, but overall, this is an engaging, compelling read.

Cress by Marissa Meyer

Cress by Marissa Meyer

Reviews 4 ★★★★★

Cress was my guilty-pleasure read this weekend. I ignored all the backed up review books (being the horrible person that I am), and snuggled down with it. As with the other two books, I found it really hard to put down Cress and go about my normal life – everything…

Shadow Kiss: The Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead

Shadow Kiss: The Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead

Reviews 0 ★★★★

Shadow Kiss is the third graphic novel adaptation of Vampire Academy, and follows the gang as they get back to school after winter break. The books are getting darker and the stakes (ha!) are higher. As usual, I absolutely love Vieceli’s illustrations, they have a depth to them that never…

Frostbite: The Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead

Frostbite: The Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead

Reviews 0 ★★★★½

The second instalment of the graphic novel adaptations of Vampire Academy is just as gorgeous and action packed as the first. Frostbite follows Rose, Lissa and the rest of the gang at a ski resort, where they go for their safety over winter break. Vieceli again masterfully recreates scenes from the…

Vampire Academy: The Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

I love graphic novels: I think they’re beautiful and give us a lovely visual adaptation of a novel that’s different from a movie. The first Vampire Academy graphic novel tells introduces Rose and Lissa perfectly, and accurately tells the story of the first book. Rose is a damphir – half…

The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead

The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead

Reviews 1

Knowing how much heartache the third book of the Vampire Academy books caused – especially, how painful the ending was – I hope I can be forgiven for putting off The Indigo Spell for as long as I did. I wanted to have The Fiery Heart in my hands in…
