Winter by Marissa Meyer

Winter by Marissa Meyer

Reviews 3 ★★★★★

It's taken me a long time to gather the courage to read Winter, mostly because I was terrified I wouldn't enjoy the finale of The Lunar Chronicles (I mean, 4 five-star books in a row? What are the odds?), but also because I didn't want to say goodbye to the characters or the world. But, as usual, Meyer has surpassed my expectations. Winter stands apart from the other books for a number of reasons. This is the first time all eight central characters are together and the first time they step foot on Lunar. But it wasn't the first time...

The Next Together by Lauren James

The Next Together by Lauren James

Reviews 1 ★★★★

I’m a sucker for reincarnation stories, so I’ve been looking forward to reading this since I heard about it. I loved The Next Together – the concept is amazing and the execution is brilliant! I loved every moment of my time with all the different versions of Katherine and Matthew. The Next Together transcends the traditional boundaries of genre to give readers a unique story.

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Reviews 4 ★★★★★

Iluminae has to be one of the cleverest books I’ve read in a long time. It’s a brilliantly crafted story that has everything – a terrifying AI, an interstellar war, explosions in space, romance, and dark humour. With its gorgeous artwork and unusual presentation, Iluminae is a feast for the eyes. It’s a vivid, emotional, exciting read that will hook most readers.

Audiobook Review: Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor

Audiobook Review: Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor

Reviews 1 ★★★★★

“This book will break your feelings. Shatter them, then stomp on the resulting little pieces. And you’ll love every moment of it.” There were times where I listened with tears in my eyes. Everything about this book is beautiful, exquisite, and agonising, and the audiobook version is even more so because Khristine Hvam is such a skilled narrator.

Audiobook Review: Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

Audiobook Review: Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

Reviews 3 ★★★★★

Again, I’ve been absolutely blown away by the experience. Khristine Hvam narrates this complex and beautiful take superbly. I loved the voices she gave the characters. Especially Zuzana. She captures the hurt and loss felt by both Karou and Akiva brilliantly. I feel like the really gets the story, the characters, and the world.

The Heir by Kiera Cass

The Heir by Kiera Cass

Reviews 0 ★★★★

I liked The Heir, I think it takes the idea of The Selection and does something new and different with it. I liked getting to know Eadlyn and her siblings, and seeing all my old(er) favourites from the original series.

Beauty by Sarah Pinborough

Beauty by Sarah Pinborough

Reviews 0 ★★★★

Another enchanting and dark fairytale by Sarah Pinborough, Beauty is set before Charm and Poison and allows us to understand those stories a lot better. It introduces us to the prince, the huntsman, a very curious girl, and a deeply disturbing castle.
