Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

Reviews 2 ★★★★

It's taken me five months to get around to reading Siege and Storm, and I hope I can be forgiven for avoiding it because I thought nothing could live up to how amazing Shadow and Bone was. In terms of action and plotting, this is a better book than the predecessor, but I enjoyed it less because of the romance.

I'd thought Shadow and Bone was action packed, filled with twists and turns that kept me guessing. Well, I'd obviously not read the sequel yet (haha!). The book hurtled at break-neck pace toward an explosive conclusion, and along the way...

Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter

Reviews 1

We left Cammie Morgan at the end of the last book as she left the Gallagher Academy (a school for spies in training) to track down the people who were hunting her. It was a strong, definitive ending, and I was looking forward to an action-packed thriller. What I got…

Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

Reviews 1

The gods have smiled upon us and brought us some Sanderson goodness before the release of Words or Radiance next year! Steelheart is an exquisite accomplishment – all the best of Brandon’s writing, world building and characterisation in an action-packed, diabolically clever book. While happily marketed as YA, Steelheart will…

Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter

Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter

Reviews 3

Despite having enjoyed the third book of the series, there were a lot of things that bothered me about Only the Good Spy Young, the fourth instalment of the Gallagher Girls. In part, this was because of my impatience with incorrect science, and in part because of my frustration with…

The Red Knight by Miles Cameron

The Red Knight by Miles Cameron

Reviews 1 ★★★★

This is going to be a difficult book to review, because there were times I loved it, times I hated it, times I was absolutely engaged in the story and times when I was bored senseless. An ambitious d├ębut, The Red Knight uses the well-used tropes of medieval epic fantasy…

Fathomless by Jackson Pearce

Fathomless by Jackson Pearce

Reviews 1

The Reynolds are a very special family. Why did I not see this before? Silas in Sisters Red, Samuel in Sweetly, and now Celia, Anna and Jane in Fathomless. My mind is blown. Fathomless is a completely different beast from the other two books in this series, I almost don’t…

Altered by Jennifer Rush

Altered by Jennifer Rush

Reviews 0 ★★★★

Once I’d started Altered, I couldn’t put it down! A thrilling ride featuring a secret government organisation and genetic experiments, it’s one of those books that you really enjoy, but once you take a step back you realise a few things didn’t really make sense. Altered features four hunky genetically…

Fuse by Julianna Baggott

Fuse by Julianna Baggott

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,…
