Hold on Tight by Abbi Glines

Hold on Tight by Abbi Glines

Reviews 0 ★★★★

Hold on Tight revitalised my love of this group of friends from this tight-knit coastal town, and it’s been amazing to get to know Dewayne better after so many books of him teasing us with his story.

Monsters by Ilsa J. Bick

Monsters by Ilsa J. Bick

Reviews 2

I feel horrible because this is a brilliant series that examines a lot of issues that YA usually shies away from, and I have looked forward to it. I don’t have the time to re-read Ashes and Shadows and I’m not enjoying Monsters, so I’ll be leaving Alex and the gang at page 100.

Binary by Stephanie Saulter

Binary by Stephanie Saulter

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

The sequel to Gemsigns has blown me away. Binary is grander and more sophisticated than its predecessor, but lacks none of its heart and brilliance. Binary accomplishes what few sequels do in surpassing its predecessor in every way.

Corruption by Jessica Shirvington

Corruption by Jessica Shirvington

Reviews 2 ★★★★★

An absolutely brilliant conclusion to the story that began in Disruption, Corruption takes us deep into the heart of the sickness that is M-Corp and the technology they use to control and subdue American citizens and the world at large.

This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

This Shattered World is a perfect follow-up to These Broken Stars, and I don’t think that fans of the latter will be disappointed in the sequel. It has progressed the series arc while introducing us to a new world and new characters, and has set us up for a great final confrontation (which will happen on Corinth).

Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken

Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken

Reviews 0 ★★★★★

Never Fade is a powerful followup to Alexandra Bracken’s The Darkest Minds, a book that I absolutely loved. I have really enjoyed Never Fade, which has surpassed the excellence of its predecessor and has me super-excited for In the Afterlight.

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

Reviews 2 ★★★½

Cloud Atlas is ridiculously clever. It’s a sweeping narrative that takes us from the 1800s to a distant post-apocalyptic future, following six different stories along the way. By turns brilliant and over-reaching, and I liked some aspects of it and loathed others.

Bad for You by Abbi Glines

Bad for You by Abbi Glines

Reviews 0 ★★★½

This is Krit’s story!! I think, aside from Dewayne, I’ve been looking forward to Krit’s story the most. Krit’s a rock star – the lead singer of a band with the tattoos and hoards of women after him to go with that title. Blythe was taken in by a pastor…
