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 Frostblood by Elly Blake

February 26, 2017 Review 22 ★★★★

Fast paced and easy to read Guess who read 50% of this book in one sitting? Yepppp it’s that addictive. Right from the first chapter the plot gets moving and it’s hard pull yourself away. Everything moves forward so fast, you keep turning the pages to read more. No lengthy descriptions weigh this fantasy down. Personally, I would have liked […]

5 Things About Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan

February 17, 2017 Review 18 ★★½

Meh Once upon a time I tried to read REIGN OF SHADOWS and didn’t get past the first chapter because of boredom. I decided to give it another go and actually managed to finish it, however my reading experience wasn’t fantastic. I just couldn’t bring myself to care for some of the characters, and there were so many cliched lines. […]

5 Things About The Rose And The Dagger by Renee Ahdieh

January 27, 2017 Review 30 ★★★★★

Feelings intensify THIS BOOK MADE ME FEEL SO MANY THINGS!! From squealing because A+ romance, to terror and suspense, and incredible sadness because of character deaths and things. Seriously, I was struggling to hold back tears while driving. I couldn’t deal (in the best way possible). Connections with more characters This increased connection to characters is the reason for the […]
