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. In Undone, we get to see some of the events through Ben’s eyes and I really liked getting to hear his take on things as I had some problems with Janelle […]

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.

This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers

I came into this book expecting zombies and while the book did not disappoint on that score, it was so much more than that. A tense, atmospheric survival story balanced with a well-drawn character study, I really could not put this one down. This is Not a Test is a book about six teenagers who hole up at their local high school to out-wait the zombie apocalypse that is raging […]

How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff

How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff was a book that was on my radar for a while; it had many glowing reviews and the premise itself sounded rather intriguing. Daisy (real name Elizabeth but nobody calls her that) is a young and troubled American girl. At fifteen, she is sent by her father and step-mother to go and stay with her aunt and cousins in England. Her Aunt Penn, […]
