The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

I am not sure how Maggie Stiefvater does it but every time I read one of her books I fall a little bit more in love with her writing. To say that I enjoyed The Raven Boys would be a gross understatement. I absolutely loved every minute of it and was so disappointed when I got to the end (and so relieved that I waited until the second book The […]

The Devil’s Reprise by Karina Halle

The Devil’s Reprise is the eagerly anticipated sequel to The Devil’s Metal, a book which managed to both thrill me and chill me to my very core; the blending of scares and emotional gut-punches making it one of my favourite reads of this year.

Luckily I managed to track down a copy in Soul Screamers Volume 2 (yes I bought this even though I already owned My Soul to Keep and My Soul to Steal – that is […]

My Soul to Lose by Rachel Vincent

My Soul to Lose was a nice little introduction to the Soul Screamers series (even though I read this after finishing the main series). It is not a requirement to read this novella prior to reading the first book but it does set the tone for the series and answers a few questions which were never really fully explained in the books. It describes what happened to Kaylee when she was first overwhelmed […]
