The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick

The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick

Reviews 2 ★★★★

You guys know how much I loved The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, right?

Well I LOVED IT! And getting to read a tie-in novel that tells us what happened to the Bennets when Lizzie wasn't making the videos was amazing!

Although technically you don't have to watch the Youtube videos to understand what is going on in the book, it's important to remember that book isn't trying to re-tell the story that the videos showed us, but rather to supplement it.

Out of Control is a heart-stopping adventure that will have you on the edge of your seat from the first chapter. It includes Alderson’s trademark action and amazing characters and takes on an issue rarely seen in YA fiction.

Come Back to Me by Mila Gray

Come Back to Me by Mila Gray

Reviews 0 ★★★★½

Come Back to Me is my favourite kind of NA story. It’s about more than just a hot romance. It’s about family and friends and dreams and love in all its incarnations. I think it’s a beautiful story and have really enjoyed reading it!

Take Me On by Katie McGarry

Reviews 1 ★★

Take Me On felt very samey – it felt like Crash Into You with mixed martial arts instead of drag racing. In fact, it didn’t really even feel like Crash Into You because I believed where Crash Into You was coming from and I found this whole book utterly unbelievable.

This lovely author can do no wrong! On the Fence is a cute story about Charlie, a total tom-boy who has grown up with three brothers and her father, and her next door neighbour Braden, who’s always been like a fourth brother to her (but not for long!)
