Coral and Bone by Tiffany Daune

Coral and Bone by Tiffany Daune is a book about mermaids and sirens that manages to have a very different take on their mythology (another personal favourite of mine is Teeth). The main character Halen discovers that she has a secret destiny and powers she had only ever dreamed of possessing. There is also a boy that keeps sneaking his way into her thoughts. She draws him over and over […]

Her family have already traveled to London but Ruth comes across […]

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

I have to admit, I jumped about like an over-excited puppy when I got approved for Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. I had been wanting to read it since it was first announced and had been keeping an eye on Netgalley for it coming up for review. Was it worth the wait? Definitely. In fact, I would say it is the best book I have read […]

Review: Fan Art by Sarah Tregay

Aww, this book was so sweet! Honestly it was a truly adorable little story. Heart-warming and fluffy – it was just what I was in the mood to read. I had never read anything by Sarah Tregay prior to reading this book but I will definitely be checking out her other works. Fan Art is the story of Jamie Peterson. He is a kid who seems to have everything going […]
