Soulbound by Heather Brewer

Soulbound by Heather Brewer

Reviews 2 ★★★★

The cover of Soulbound grabbed me when I saw it at the store - isn't it gorgeous? I was pleasantly surprised to find that the what's inside lived up to my expectations - Soulbound is a great adventure featuring a wonderful heroine and a tight plot line.

The protagonist, Kaya, is absolutely awesome. A lot of the heroines I read either lack motivation or make decisions for stupid, selfish reasons. Kaya is motivated by the death of her best friend - she wants to be able to defend herself in case she is ever in the same position. Having been...

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

When I first heard about Cinder, I was sceptical. I haven’t had positive experiences with retellings of fairytales, and a retelling of Cinderella with a cyborg Cinderella sounds silly to me. Once I started reading the book, I found that it isn’t the same calibre as most of the YA…
