Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz is a thing of beauty. Its very simplicity is the book’s greatest strength. I had heard many great things about this book but had put buying it off because the ebook was quite expensive. Eventually though I just had to cave in and buy it and I am very glad that I did. From the very first […]

The Red Sheet by Mia Kerick

The Red Sheet by Mia Kerick was a thoroughly engrossing read. I would go as far to say it is my favourite book that she has written so far (and that is high praise since I really adored Intervention and Not Broken, Just Bent).

I Love You by Barbara Conklin was the first book in the titular Sweet Dreams series (think Harlequin or Mills and Boon novels except aimed at the teenage market). My previous blog entry on the Sweet Dreams Series provided a bit more detail on […]

World After by Susan Ee

World After is the long-anticipated sequel to Angelfall – a self-published novel by Susan Ee which seemed to sprout wings and take off (bad pun intended!) when it was released two years ago. Angelfall was a massive success which seemed to take the book blogosphere by storm. Fans have been eagerly awaiting the sequel especially since the first book ended with a colossal cliff-hanger. But the real question is does […]
