Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard

I am seriously in love with this book. I think it is one of the best ya novels I have ever read (and I have read and loved a lot). At first you could be mistaken for thinking it is just a run-of-the-mill piece of travel fiction but it is so much more than that. The tone itself was filled with wonder and excitement and the locations practically jumped of […]

Flat-Out Matt by Jessica Park

Well if I loved Matt in Flat-Out Love, I loved him even more in this companion novella. I enjoyed getting to see his perspective on certain chapters from Flat-Out Love, and I really loved the extra bits at the beginning and the end. It was great to see Matt hiking with Finn in the first chapter of the novella. It really sold their brotherly bond. I don’t want to give […]

I was really charmed by Flat-Out Love. I was expecting a nice, fluffy read but instead what I got was a much deeper and emotional experience – and I absolutely loved it!

Things don’t exactly begin promisingly as the apartment she was supposed to be renting (and had paid rent for in advance) […]

The Rising by Kelley Armstrong

The Rising, the concluding chapter of the Darkness Rising Trilogy by Kelley Armstrong, found its way into my mailbox yesterday. A nice surprise since it is not due out until 2nd April (must have got it early due to being the bank holiday weekend for Easter – yay!!). I have been eagerly anticipating its release so didn’t waste any time in setting about reading it. I was not disappointed. I […]

Gone, Gone, Gone by Hannah Moskowitz

Well once again I have been absolutely amazed by Hannah Moskowitz. I really loved Teeth, which I read earlier this year, but I think I love Gone, Gone, Gone even more if that is possible. Gone, Gone, Gone is a tender love story between two fifteen year-old boys, Craig and Lio, set during the events of the Beltway sniper shootings. Still recovering from 9/11, Lio and his family move from […]
