Soulbound by Heather Brewer

Soulbound by Heather Brewer

August 28, 2012 Reviews 2 ★★★★

The cover of Soulbound grabbed me when I saw it at the store - isn't it gorgeous? I was pleasantly surprised to find that the what's inside lived up to my expectations - Soulbound is a great adventure featuring a wonderful heroine and a tight plot line.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

January 25, 2012 Reviews 0 ★★★★★

When I first heard about Cinder, I was sceptical. I haven’t had positive experiences with retellings of fairytales, and a retelling of Cinderella with a cyborg Cinderella sounds silly to me. Once I started reading the book, I found that it isn’t the same calibre as most of the YA…
