5 Things About Ballad for a Mad Girl

August 10, 2017 Review 6 ★★★★

LoveOzYA PROMOTE ALL THE AUSSIE BOOKS!! Vikki Wakefield is an author I’ve heard nothing but good things about, and I’m so glad I can add her to my list of Aussie Authors read. I definitely need to check out more of her stuff after BALLAD FOR A MAD GIRl because it was so well written.   A large focus on […]

5 Things About Yellow by Megan Jacobson

5 Things About Yellow by Megan Jacobson

July 11, 2017 Review 10 ★★★★

Short, fast, and easy Being as busy as I am with Uni, short books are my thing atm (at least, in an attempt to keep up with reviews on the blog). I’m so tired by the time I’m done with the day that I don’t want to think too much. YELLOW was the perfect book; easy to read and follow, […]

Review: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Review: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

June 2, 2017 Review 8 ★★★½

I don’t think I’ve ever felt this conflicted when trying to review a book. Even as I’m writing this, I’m not sure what I’m going to rate it. There are just so many thoughts about it floating around my head. So this review has turned into more of a discussion style, which I haven’t written in so long. As a side note before […]

5 Things About Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

March 18, 2017 Review 24 ★★★★

It didn’t break my emotions After ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES I was kind of terrified to read this. That book broke me and had me sobbing at some ungodly late hour (FINCH FEELS). HOLDING UP THE UNIVERSE doesn’t pack anywhere near as painful a punch. It is a much more positive, uplifting novel with less pain and angst. Another important […]

5 Things About On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

5 Things About On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

March 9, 2017 Review 20 ★★★★½

My first Melina Marchetta contemporary Okay first is a lie. Technically ON THE JELLICOE ROAD is my second Marchetta contemporary because I had to read LOOKING FOR ALIBRANDI in high school. Either way, I loved this as much as I loved FINNIKIN OF THE ROCK! I cannot wait to delve into more of Marchetta’s contemporary fiction, or all the other […]

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 […]
