Unravelling by Elizabeth Norris

I don’t know exactly what I was expecting from Unravelling by Elizabeth Norris but what I ended up getting was a all-out action packed, science-fiction thriller with a little bit of romance chucked in for good measure. I loved it but did feel like I was being bombarded with too many genres and, although my nerdy self loved a lot of the references to pop culture, it did at times […]

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor and Park is a thoroughly absorbing story about two young misfits coming together and finding love. 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.

Bruised tells the story of Imogen, a […]

[…]

Blood of Dragons by Robin Hobb

I have been a huge Robin Hobb fan for years, ever since I first read the Farseer Trilogy (which remains one of my favourite book series, along with the Tawny Man and the Liveship Traders trilogies). The Rain Wild Chronicles took awhile to get into, mainly because I had a lot of difficulty warming up to the characters at first, but it has really grown on me and I think […]
