Corruption by Jessica Shirvington

Corruption by Jessica Shirvington

December 1, 2014 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.

Last year Maggie Stevens cemented herself as one of my all-time favourite protagonists, and I'm happy to say my opinion of her has only risen while reading Corruption. I rarely read characters who are so in tune with the truth of who they are: usually protagonists think themselves nicer, more selfless, smarter, or just simply better than they actually are,...

This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

November 25, 2014 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).

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

November 5, 2014 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.

This Night So Dark by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

This Night So Dark by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

October 27, 2014 Reviews 2 ★★★★★

This Night So Dark tells us how Tarver became a Major in the army, and why he was all over the news when we met him in These Broken Stars. Tarver and Lilac, who are living together after the events of These Broken Stars, are talking about that eventful night because Tarver still has nightmares about it. And in the retelling, they realise that those events are connected to the crash of the Icarus and all that happened afterwards.

A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

October 20, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★★★

I loved everything about A Thousand Pieces of You! It’s a beautiful book and I know I’ll spend a lot of time raving about it. I don’t think I can accurately express how much I loved this book. You’ll just have to grab yourself a copy and experience the awesome yourself.

Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris

Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris

August 22, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★★½

I loved Unbreakable! I can’t believe it took me so long to pick it up 🙁 I think I was scared that the sequel couldn’t possibly live up to Unravelling, but it did!! Perfect for fans of science fiction, Unravelling isn’t a book to miss. I really, really hope there’s another book.

Eight by James Phelan

Eight by James Phelan

July 11, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★

Another quick read from James Phelan, Eight slips back into the formulaic writing of the earlier instalments of the series. Sam’s adventures are getting darker and the world is becoming more dangerous for Dreamers.

Cured by Bethany Wiggins

Cured by Bethany Wiggins

June 6, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★

Cured has been an anticipated read for me ever since I read, and enjoyed, Stung earlier this year. Although I wasn’t expecting the change in protagonist, I think it worked well once I got over the fact that I wasn’t going to be in Fiona’s head again.

Take Back the Skies by Lucy Saxon

Take Back the Skies by Lucy Saxon

June 2, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★

Take Back the Skies has, on the surface, all the elements to make it an instant hit among the young and the old, but its poor execution lets it down at almost every turn, and I was quite disappointed with it.
