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 […]

Yesterday by C.K. Kelly Martin

Yesterday by C. K. Kelly Martin was a slightly disappointing read for me. I have heard really good things about this author but I was not overly wowed by this book, though the writing was good and I would still consider checking out her other works.

I loved it but did feel like I was being bombarded with too many genres and, although my nerdy self loved a lot of the references to pop culture, it did at times […]

Shades of Earth by Beth Revis

Shades of Earth is the final installment in the Across the Universe trilogy by Beth Revis and it is definitely my favourite. All the pieces of the story come together and it felt much faster paced than Across the Universe and A Million Suns (not that I didn’t enjoy them too). I think part of it is because they have finally left the claustrophobic Godspeed behind (though there were times […]
