Review: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

April 10, 2016 Review 26 ★★★★

5 Things About Burning Glass by Kathryn Purdie

5 Things About Burning Glass by Kathryn Purdie

March 20, 2016 Review 35 ★★

BURNING GLASS started off on a high note. We are thrown into the action immediately, and although things were a little bit unbelievable, they were entertaining.

Review: The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

March 12, 2016 Review 32 ★★★

After reading and enjoying PASSENGER and reading and disliking INTO THE DIM, my patience with time travel books was wearing thin. Luckily, THE GIRL FROM EVERYWHERE brought in a few new aspects that held my interest. Given a map, Nix and her father can sail to any place at any time. However, not a lot of traveling actually happens in the plot. Nix’s father is obsessed with obtaining the one map that will reunite him with his lost love, and much of the book focuses on him in Honolulu trying to find this map. Read more »

5 Things About the Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson

World development was one of the things I was hoping for in this sequel and I’m so glad it delivered in this aspect! Exploring the culture of Venda, the lore of the world’s religions and history and how everything related to the prophecy was my favourite part of the novel. It was all so very fascinating and much more interesting to me than the romance. Read more »
