Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

January 8, 2016 Reviews 4 ★★★★★

Iluminae has to be one of the cleverest books I've read in a long time. It's a brilliantly crafted story that has everything - a terrifying AI, an interstellar war, explosions in space, romance, and dark humour. The pre-pubication hype (I've wanted this book since it was announced!) was absolutely on point! Kady Grant and Ezra Mason become embroiled in a battle between megacorporations that destroys their home planet, and soon find themselves on separate vessels of an evacuating fleet, with the enemy chasing after them. Their story is relayed through a series of interview transcripts, emails, internet chats, computer...

Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

September 7, 2015 Reviews 2 ★★★★★

Reading The Raven Cycle is painful. But it’s a beautiful kind of pain that I, and many other readers, keep going back for. The lush world building, intriguing characters, and superb plotting suck people in and refuse to let them go. Blue Lily, Lily Blue is a masterpiece. It’s brilliant, evocative, vivid, and, above all, magical.

Fearless by Marianne Curley

July 30, 2015 Reviews 0 ★★★★

Fearless, the last instalment in the Avena series, concludes Ebony and Nathaneal’s story admirably, and I enjoyed every moment of it immensely. I’ve loved this series since I read Hidden, and am sad to let these characters and their world go.

July 28, 2015 Reviews 1 ★★★★

Resonance is a smorgasbord of delights, offering gothic fantasy, historical fiction, and horror in one 450 page novel that will readers spellbound. It certainly gripped me – I read it one sitting on a Sunday afternoon.

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.

The Heir by Kiera Cass

The Heir by Kiera Cass

May 28, 2015 Reviews 0 ★★★★

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.

Every Move by Ellie Marney

Every Move by Ellie Marney

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.
