The Sky So Heavy by Claire Zorn

The Sky So Heavy by Claire Zorn

March 11, 2014 Reviews 5 ★★★★½

Since I'm all for honesty, my review starts with a confession. As you may know, I don't read blurbs when starting a book: I find they make the first 25% of a book pointless, and sometimes contain mild spoilers. This means that when I started The Sky So Heavy, I'd automatically assumed the protagonist was a girl. Since it's told in first person, I had no evidence to the contrary. When the love interest was introduced, I was fairly excited - an apocalyptic story set in Australia featuring a homosexual couple! It was on page 14, when the protagonist was...

The Last Shot by Michael Adams

The Last Shot by Michael Adams

March 7, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★½

The Last Shot is the sequel to The Last Girl, a brilliant début set in a post-acopalyptic Sydney. The world as we know it has ended. A week ago, a mysterious event dubbed The Snap instantaneously allowed everyone to read each other’s thoughts (inside some radius). People destroyed themselves and each other as their deepest, darkest secrets were broadcast out on the open.

This book has blown me away! I really liked it, and am looking forward to more. The world is ending! Well, no, but something very weird does happen to Dean on his way to school one morning: mega hail takes out his school bus and suddenly he and a bunch…

Reboot by Amy Tintera

Reboot by Amy Tintera

June 3, 2013 Reviews 0

Another case of a supposedly kick-butt heroine falling to pieces the first time a cute boy looks in her direction. Although it is based around an awesome idea – young victims of a deadly virus can come back to life and are used by the government as assassins – Reboot…

Fuse by Julianna Baggott

Fuse by Julianna Baggott

May 28, 2013 Reviews 2 ★★★★½

Fact: Pure was one of the best books I read last year. Fact: Pure has amazing world-building and character development, you won’t read anything else quite like it. Fact: Fuse is much, much better than Pure: it’s mindblowing-ly awesome. You probably want to pick up Fuse right after reading Pure,…

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

May 19, 2013 Reviews 2 ★★★½

The 5th Wave is an enjoyable action adventure story set amongst a terrifying alien invasion. While the premise and world building of the novel are great, it is let down by some of its characters and its nonsensical romances. The truth is, once they found us, we were toast. ————–…
