Burn by Paula Weston

Burn by Paula Weston

June 17, 2015 Reviews 1 ★★★★★

What a glorious way to end off one of the best angel-themed paranormal series I've ever read! Burn is everything I expected from the final instalment of The Rephaim, a brilliantly plotted novel where action, romance, and intrigue come together to create magic.

I say this in every review I write for this series, but it's true -- I can't believe how much has happened since Gaby met Rafa eleven days ago. Gaby went from thinking she's a teenaged backpacker who recently lost her twin brother in an accident to finding out she's a hundred and thirty-nine, and a Rephaite...

Magonia is one of the most beautiful books I’ve had the pleasure of reading in a long time. The prose, the characters, the world-building, everything about it is simply gorgeous.

I liked The Heir, I think it takes the idea of The Selection and does something new and different with it. I liked getting to know Eadlyn and her siblings, and seeing all my old(er) favourites from the original series.

It was delightful to get back to Yelena and Valek after so long, and Shadow Study proves that the magic of some worlds and their characters only strengthens with time. This book is a wonderful beginning to a kick-ass new series that introduces us to a new threat, some new…

April 15, 2015 Reviews 1 ★★★★

The last instalment of Ellie Marney’s Every series has left me conflicted and sad. Although it’s hard to say good-bye to Mycroft and Watts, it’s probably for the best because I didn’t really like the way this book turned out.

Quick Verdict: A strong adaptation that remains true to the vision of the first movie. The cinematography and score are again flawless, the action and plotting are tight, and Kate Winslet is scary.

Half Wild by Sally Green

Half Wild by Sally Green

April 8, 2015 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.

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson

April 2, 2015 Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Firefight is a wonderful sequel to the heart-stopping Steelheart, delivering all the action, adventure, and fun that readers will expect. It’s an explosive adventure that captured my imagination, and has left me sad that I have to wait so long for the next instalment, Calamity.

Beauty by Sarah Pinborough

Beauty by Sarah Pinborough

March 30, 2015 Reviews 0 ★★★★

Another enchanting and dark fairytale by Sarah Pinborough, Beauty is set before Charm and Poison and allows us to understand those stories a lot better. It introduces us to the prince, the huntsman, a very curious girl, and a deeply disturbing castle.
