5 #LoveOzYA Books on my TBR

March 22, 2017 Discussion 26

I love celebrating the magnificent books that are produced in my country! And Australia has some fantastic authors producing brilliant novels! Unfortunately, as much as I love to talk about them, I haven’t actually┬áread all that many… One day this will change! Hopefully soon, because I have quite a few Aussie books on my TBR. Here are 5 of them. […]

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 Hexenhaus by Nikki McWatters

5 Things About Hexenhaus by Nikki McWatters

January 19, 2017 Review 14 ★★★½

Three different stories, three different times HEXENHAUS features three different witch hunts in three different time periods, told in alternating chapters. These alternating chapters can be a bit worrying as sometimes you like one character more than the others and so some chapters become boring. In HEXENHAUS this was not the case, as I really enjoyed all the stories and […]

5 Things About Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

5 Things About Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

September 15, 2016 Review 28 ★★★★★

  Not for younger audiences NEVERNIGHT features a school for asassins and a revenge plot. I would be disappointed if the voilence was softened to suit a younger audience. Darker, more complex tales targeted at a slightly older audience are much more interesting in my opinion. NEVERNIGHT is bloody and intense. People could die at any time. But this wasn’t […]

5 Things About Waer by Meg Caddy

5 Things About Waer by Meg Caddy

April 20, 2016 Review 18 ★★★★

There is a fear when you start a debut novel that the writing will be subpar or struggle to pull off the premise of the novel due to inexperience. WAER did not have this problem. At all. Every element of the story was constructed well and it reads like some of my fantasy series I’ve been following for years. Read more »

5 Things About Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club

5 Things About Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club

January 14, 2016 Review 24 ★★★★

The build is slow Patience grasshopper. I was expecting THE DARK DAYS CLUB to have a slow build from seeing blogging friends reading it and from my experience of reading Alison Goodman’s other book, EON. The time is taken to establish the world and characters at a slow, but not entirely unreasonable, pace. Little bits and pieces are sown into […]

5 Things About Frankie and  Joely by Nova Weetman

5 Things About Frankie and Joely by Nova Weetman

December 2, 2015 Review 16 ★★½

Characters I could not deal with FRANKIE AND JOELY is a very character driven novel, and unfortunately the main characters were people I had issues connecting with. They were just frustrating in various ways. Some of their thoughts and actions I didn’t agree with, or they’d say things that grate my nerves. The only characters I liked entirely were minor […]
