The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff

The Space Between is the second Brenna Yovanoff book I have had the pleasure of reading (the first being Paper Valentine which I also thoroughly enjoyed). It wasn’t the easiest read, but it was definitely one of the most rewarding. I was completely captivated from beginning to end. It is the story of a girl called Daphne. Daphne is the daughter of Lucifer and Lilith and she lives in Pandemonium, a city in […]

The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg

The characters broke my heart into teeny, tiny pieces but now it is time to try and put it all back together again to try and […]

Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff

Wow. This is my first Brenna Yovanoff book. I will definitely be reading the rest of her books based on the strength of Paper Valentine. The writing was excellent and I really loved the story and the main characters. Paper Valentine is a story about loss first and foremost. The main character Hannah has recently lost her best friend Lillian, who essentially starved herself to death. Hannah is not really […]

The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna

This book left me speechless – in a good way. The Lost Girl is the debut novel of Sangu Mandanna and it is an outstandingly excellent read. I just didn’t want it to finish. I love science fiction/fantasy and ya so I always look forward to any new release which encompass these genres. Eva is an ‘echo’ a copy of a girl called Amarra, a young girl who lives in […]
