5 Things About All Fall Down by Ally Carter

5 Things About All Fall Down by Ally Carter

July 14, 2016 Review 26 ★★★★½

I’ve missed Ally Carter’s writing It’s been a good year or two since I read an Ally Carter novel and I didn’t realise how much I’d missed her writing. It’s fast, it’s fun, it’s addictive. So easy to keep the pages turning and lose yourself for hours. Every character is interesting Some of the characters surprised me and had a […]

Review: With Malice by Eileen Cook

Review: With Malice by Eileen Cook

June 24, 2016 Review 32 ★★★★

WITH MALICE unravels a mystery about what happened after two best friends take a school trip to Italy, with one returning with missing memories and one not returning at all. The entire novel is driven by the need to answer one question: what happened? Told from Jill’s point of view, we find ourselves in the same position she is. Due […]
