Tandem by Anna Jarzab

Tandem by Anna Jarzab

January 16, 2014 Reviews 5 ★½

I’ve been quite excited about Tandem – parallel worlds, a mysterious boy, what’s not to like? However, I feel like I’ve been duped with this book. I don’t think it satisfied many of my expectations, although I did enjoy the differences between our universe and that of Aurora. I’m hoping…

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this, the concluding volume of the WOOL saga. Dust is bittersweet – it rounds out the story very well and its core message is one of hope and determination, but everything is tinged with sadness and loss. The main struggle in this book…

Captivate is an ambitious novel, and although I saw a lot of potential in the blurb, I have to confess I’m mostly disappointed by it. Here is the premise of Captivate: Marko is the king of an under-water settlement of humans, and he’s usurped his psychotic elder brother Damir’s throne….

December 18, 2013 Reviews 0 ★★★★

I wish the Lux novels were about Dawson. It’s not that I don’t like Daemon … well actually, I don’t like him much at all … but I wish authors and publishers weren’t so eager to always shove tortured, rebellious, mysterious bad boys in our faces. I’d much rather read about…

The Best of all Possible Worlds by Karen Lord

December 10, 2013 Reviews 1

The sheer scale of this novel is impressive – the world-building, examination of social norms and portrayals of a variety of meaningful relationships all left me in awe. This is the first book by Karen Lord that I have read, but I will be looking out for her works in…
