The Summer I Became a Nerd

The Summer I Became a Nerd was a cute, fun read from debut author Leah Rae Miller. Being a bit of a nerd myself, I found myself caught up in this story about a girl called Maddie – a ‘closeted’ nerd – who over the course of a summer learns to embrace her inner-geek and accept herself for who she really is, not the image she has been trying to project […]

Naked by Kevin Brooks

Naked is the first Kevin Brooks book I’ve read but it will definitely not be the last. This was a raw, exciting novel set in the burgeoning world of punk.

She finds herself becoming the bassist of a group called ‘Naked’ but […]

This book is about Maeve, one of the daughters of Lord Sean of Sevenwaters, who was last seen in Child of the Prophecy. I really loved Maeve’s voice. She was prickly and definitely […]

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 […]
