Don’t Judge a Girl by Her Cover by Ally Carter

Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover is the third instalment of the Gallagher Girls series, and begins at the start of Cammie's junior year (which is Yr 11, I understand). Cammie's visiting her friend Macey in Boston when everything changes, and suddenly, the real spy-world is nearer than ever before. Where before everything was a learning experience, a training exercise, Cammie and her friends find themselves thrust into the midst of a conspiracy. I think the plot of this book is a vast improvement on the other two: there's finally some substance and meat to a series that was...

Storm Watcher is a poignant and compelling read which had me on the verge of tears more than once. I came into this book thinking, hoping, it was a paranormal fantasy, perhaps about a boy who can channel the power of a storm. Storm Watcher is a heartwarming contemporary about…

Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover

Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover

Reviews 0

I don’t know what to feel about this book. On one hand, Point of Retreat is a great sequel to Slammed, and delivers a great story line and continues to introduce us to amazing characters. On the other hand, it’s so drama-lhama! There is just too much going on, and…

Slammed by Colleen Hoover

Slammed by Colleen Hoover

Reviews 1

A gorgeous, emotional read, Slammed is one of the best new adult contemporaries I have ever read. It’s not some silly YA story with some sex and violence and illness added in, it’s a real, heartbreaking story of two people who have so much to lose. This amazing story about…

Venom by Fiona Paul

Venom by Fiona Paul

Reviews 2

It took me a long time – more than half way through the novel – to really get into Venom, and there was a time when I contemplated not finishing it. Something about Cassandra and her predicament refused to click with me, and I couldn’t see the so-called romance between…

Dare You To by Katie McGarry

Dare You To by Katie McGarry

Reviews 0 ★★★

I was a little wary of Dare You To – could this book be as emotional, as edgy, as Pushing the Limits? Could I believe in the premise and not scoff at how the two protagonists predictably find each other in the darkest hours of their lives. The short answer: yes,…
