The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

April 29, 2014 Reviews 2 ★★★★★

Oh what an adorable book. The adorable-est. This is the cutest, sweetest Cinderella style story about a girl with a very hard life who meets a Very Rich Guy, who turns out to just be the dreamiest boy ever.

It sounds clichéd but it works wonderfully with Kasie West’s amazing story-telling and brilliant characters. I believed in Xander and Caymen, they’re realistic and well crafted. They feel real to me, and I want to believe that their story really did unfold in some corner of the world.

Caymen is the kind of protagonist I love to read about - sweet,...

The Unbound by Victoria Schwab

The Unbound by Victoria Schwab

April 23, 2014 Reviews 2 ★★★½

I wanted to love The Unbound as much as I did The Archived. And I think, until I sat down to review it, I did. But I’ve sorted out all my feelings for it now and have realised that I don’t think it lives up to the brilliance of its predecessor.

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente

March 31, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★★½

I’m rarely moved to hug a book and breathe a sigh of contentment when I’ve finished reading it, but that’s exactly that I did when The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making ended. Although it took me a while to immerse myself in it and to appreciate what the author was doing, once I got there I didn’t want to put the book down!

Cress by Marissa Meyer

Cress by Marissa Meyer

March 18, 2014 Reviews 4 ★★★★★

Cress was my guilty-pleasure read this weekend. I ignored all the backed up review books (being the horrible person that I am), and snuggled down with it. As with the other two books, I found it really hard to put down Cress and go about my normal life – everything…

Fracture Me by Tahereh Mafi

Fracture Me by Tahereh Mafi

March 9, 2014 Reviews 3 ★★★

The novellas for this series seem pretty divisive. When Destroy Me came out everyone was swooning over Warner and at the announcement of Fracture Me there was a lot of back-lash over it being from Adam’s point of view, and not Warner’s (or even Kenji’s). So much of the conversation in the fandom…

Most Wanted by E.L Friel

Most Wanted by E.L Friel

February 3, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★★

I picked this up because it’s written by a prominent YA author (and one of my favourite YA authors, at that), and I’ve enjoyed reading it a lot! We should keep in mind that Friel wrote this book in ten days – which makes this accomplishment all the more amazing….

Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi

Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi

January 30, 2014 Reviews 0 ★★★

I’m reading this long, long after I’ve read Unravel Me, which I think is both a positive and a negative. A positive because I’m not hankering to know what happens next, but a negative because the experience of reading Unravel Me would have been richer for knowing what this novella…
