The Three Secret Cities by Matthew Reilly

The Three Secret Cities by Matthew Reilly

November 14, 2018 Reviews 0 ★★★★

Taking up where The Four Legendary Kingdoms ended, The Three Secret Cities follows Jack and his team as they race to save the world.

Again.

The stakes are ever higher, the action more gripping with every turned page, and yet in between Really manages to tug at the heart-strings. I read it in one sitting, which probably tells you something as I've struggled with the reading thing for a while now. The things that repeatedly draw me back to these books (aside from the heart-stopping thrills and awesome mix of fantasy, mythology and action) are the characters. While I enjoyed...

Every Move by Ellie Marney

Every Move by Ellie Marney

April 15, 2015 Reviews 1 ★★★★

The last instalment of Ellie Marney’s Every series has left me conflicted and sad. Although it’s hard to say good-bye to Mycroft and Watts, it’s probably for the best because I didn’t really like the way this book turned out.

Every Word by Ellie Marney

Every Word by Ellie Marney

October 30, 2014 Reviews 2 ★★★★★

We take up with Mycroft and Watts some eight weeks after Every Breath, when news from London sets a new sleuthing adventure in motion for the troubled duo. Every Word is a gripping crime-thiller that builds on the foundations laid down in Every Breath, and is every bit as exciting and engaging as its predecessor.

Panic by Lauren Oliver

Panic by Lauren Oliver

April 22, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★★

I didn’t really know what I was getting into when I started to read Panic, but only one chapter in I knew the book had its hooks in me. The narration is brilliant, the premise is thrilling and haunting at the same time, and the characters are real in a way rarely seen in books.

All the Truth That’s in Me by Julie Berry

All the Truth That’s in Me by Julie Berry

April 4, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★★

This is a brilliant, brilliant book, and I am extremely annoyed I held myself back with it. It’s a raw, emotive narrative about Judith, who went missing with her best friend two years ago. Judith returned, Lottie didn’t.

Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff

Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff

March 4, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★★½

It’s no secret that I have loved Brenna’s previous books, and it’s taken me ages, but I’ve finally read Paper Valentine. This is a gorgeous, haunting novel about a series of murders that occur in a small town, where young girls are suddenly cooped up inside their houses and everyone…

United We Spy by Ally Carter

United We Spy by Ally Carter

November 13, 2013 Reviews 0

The end of an era, the final book of the Gallagher Girls series. Covert operations, swooning, bullets (and blood) and danger are everywhere, but I’m kind of just glad the series is over. Actually, United We Spy was a pleasure to read – much more serious and fast-paced than the…
