Dare by Natalia Jaster

I did not expect to fall in love with ‘Dare’ as quickly I did with its predecessor ‘Trick’. Poet and Briar stole my heart completely and utterly and I really didn’t expect the magic to strike twice, no matter how amazing Natalia Jaster’s writing is. Well, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Not only did I fall just as hard and just as deep for Flare and Jeryn (although granted, this […]

Trick by Natalia Jaster

‘Trick’ by Natalia Jaster first came to my attention through the art work of Noverantale (go check out her work – you will not regret it!) It sounded so intriguing I just had to check it out for myself. Well, to say I loved this book would be vastly underselling it. This was the book I didn’t know I needed in my life. I have read a lot (and I mean a […]

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

To state I was excited to read ‘The Cruel Prince’ by Holly Black would be a gross understatement to say the least.

I did a happy dance round my living room when I found out (it wasn’t […]

The Traitor’s Crux by Jessica Prather

The Traitor’s Crux by Jessica Prather is a rare beast indeed. A book that weaves themes of magic and dystopia – two of my favourite genres so rarely mixed together. A young girl called Kenadee experiences a trauma as a child. Her elder brother Eli was discovered to have magic. He is taken away (possibly killed) by the evil President (think President Snow from the Hunger Games but even more diabolical). […]

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 […]
