Yesterday by C.K. Kelly Martin

Yesterday by C. K. Kelly Martin was a slightly disappointing read for me. I have heard really good things about this author but I was not overly wowed by this book, though the writing was good and I would still consider checking out her other works. I really liked the idea behind this story but the execution of it fell little flat for me and I found the story to […]

Undone by Elizabeth Norris

Okay I much prefer this universe when Ben is the narrator as opposed to Janelle! This novella covers some of the events in Unravelling (from Ben’s perspective) and a little after, as a bridge to the second book Unbreakable.

It is the first book I have read by Rainbow Rowell and I will definitely be seeking out the rest of her novels on the strength of this one. The year is 1986. On the bus to school, new girl Eleanor winds up sitting next to Park, an action that will have a […]

Bruised by Sarah Skilton

I was expecting a lot from Bruised, debut novel of author Sarah Skilton, and it really delivered. It is a rare book that can so deftly convey the turbulent emotions that can arise following a traumatic event but Bruised really packs a punch and isn’t afraid to delve into what damage can be done to a person’s psyche in the aftermath of tragedy. Bruised tells the story of Imogen, a […]
