Ten by James Phelan

Ten by James Phelan

May 14, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★

This book nice change of pace from the earlier ones in the series. Ten focusses more on the dangers that beset the team rather than simply a quest to an exotic location to find a new dreamer and new piece of the machine.

Disruption a sci-fi thriller in the purest form, and a fine example of it too. I think it has a wide appeal, because of the science fiction, action and romantic elements that it weaves together.

Cress by Marissa Meyer

March 18, 2014 Reviews 4 ★★★★★

Cress was my guilty-pleasure read this weekend. I ignored all the backed up review books (being the horrible person that I am), and snuggled down with it. As with the other two books, I found it really hard to put down Cress and go about my normal life – everything…

Erased by Jennifer Rush

Erased by Jennifer Rush

March 5, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★½

I think Erased is a perfect sequel. Everything I loved about Altered is present in full-force in this novel, with a few bits of extra awesomeness thrown in for good measure! I have always loved how mature and focussed the protagonist, Anna, is. She didn’t get caught up her relationship…
