Towering by Alex Flinn

Towering by Alex Flinn

Reviews 0

Although well told and imaginative, I think this project was a little too ambitious for my liking. Towering is modern retelling of the Rapunzel fairy-tale, but Flinn has coupled it with elements from Wuthering Heights which left me bewildered and confused. Wyatt is my favourite character in the book –…

The Shadowed Throne by K.J. Taylor

The Shadowed Throne by K.J. Taylor

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

Taylor’s gorgeous writing hooks me again! The Shadowed Throne is impeccably plotted and wonderfully told, figuratively carrying me away into another land. I’m not sure I’ll survive the wait until the concluding volume of the series. Since the groundwork was beautifully laid out in the previous title, The Shadow’s Heir,…

Life After Theft by Aprilynne Pike

Life After Theft by Aprilynne Pike

Reviews 0

This is the first book I’ve read by Pike, and if it’s indicative of her writing, I’ll definitely be back for more! Life After Theft is a hilarious, expectedly emotional read that grabbed me from the very first page. I appreciate that the book isn’t part of a series, because…

Venom by Fiona Paul

Venom by Fiona Paul

Reviews 2

It took me a long time – more than half way through the novel – to really get into Venom, and there was a time when I contemplated not finishing it. Something about Cassandra and her predicament refused to click with me, and I couldn’t see the so-called romance between…
