The Unbound by Victoria Schwab

The Unbound by Victoria Schwab

Reviews 2 ★★★½

Oh this book.

I loved The Archived so much - its unique premise, its awesome protagonist Mackenzie, the relationships between Mac and her family, and of course, Wesley.

I was lucky enough to get a copy of a sampler of The Unbound, and when I read it, the only thing I could think about was that I needed a copy of the full novel because how could the sampler end like that (brilliant marketing, by the way). And when my copy of The Unbound arrived, I devoured it (nom nom nom).

I found myself questioning Mac's place as a Keeper...

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

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

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

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

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

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…

Frostbite: The Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead

Frostbite: The Graphic Novel by Richelle Mead

Reviews 0 ★★★★½

The second instalment of the graphic novel adaptations of Vampire Academy is just as gorgeous and action packed as the first. Frostbite follows Rose, Lissa and the rest of the gang at a ski resort, where they go for their safety over winter break. Vieceli again masterfully recreates scenes from the…
