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 […]

Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George

I love fairy tale retellings and I can clearly recall picking up Princess of the Midnight Ball a few years ago specifically because I saw it was a retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses.

That may be the reason I put off reading this one for so long, fearing […]

Here are the best bits: Becca is a strong female character (yay!) that has plenty of flaws that make her incredibly realistic. Chris is very different to most of his classmates. He is an Elemental and […]

Graveyard Child by M.L.N. Hanover

Graveyard Child is the fifth (and final?) installment in The Black Sun’s Daughter series. I rattled my way through the first four books last year and got swept up into the lives of Jayné Heller and her friends and fellow demon hunters. I have been eagerly awaiting this book after the ending of Killing Rites left off on such a pivotal cliffhanger. This book picks up pretty much where the last one ended with Jayné, […]
