Adaptation by Malinda Lo

I was very excited to read this book. Not just because it was a dystopian (I love dystopian settings) but because the main protagonist is bisexual – yay for diversity! I have read many LGBT books but very little seem to cover the ‘B’ (even less so the ‘T’) aspect so I was really happy to discover that the main character Reece is attracted to girls as well as boys.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

To say that I loved this book would be an understatement. As a rule, I adore fairy tale retellings. I also love dystopian settings. Combining the story of Cinderella with a dystopian theme = win!

But the real question is does […]

Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris

Wow. Unbreakable pulls you in from the very first word and doesn’t let go until the nail-biting ending. I really liked Unravelling but Unbreakable was even more enjoyable for me. The book picks up about four months after the devastating conclusion of Unravelling. After the cataclysmic events of the first book, Janelle is trying to pick up the pieces in a world that has gone to chaos. Still reeling after losing her father and best friend, Janelle […]

The Shattering by Karen Healey

Karen Healey’s The Shattering was a gripping paranormal thriller that I just could not put down. The story was involving and the characters very authentic and relatable. The novel focuses on three characters: Keri, Janna and Sione. These three teens have something terrible in common – their elder brothers all committed suicide. Keri’s brother is the latest victim. After his death, Janna comes to Keri with the notion that it […]
