Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

I have to admit, I jumped about like an over-excited puppy when I got approved for Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. I had been wanting to read it since it was first announced and had been keeping an eye on Netgalley for it coming up for review. Was it worth the wait? Definitely. In fact, I would say it is the best book I have read […]

Tabula Rasa by Kristen Lippert-Martin

Tabula Rasa is the debut novel from Kristen Lippert-Martin, an exciting science fiction/dystopian tale described as a cross between The Bourne Identity and Divergent. This description certainly caught my attention and I was really excited to read this. Was it a flawless read? No. Did it deliver on its promises? Not entirely.

The […]

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.

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. I have been anxiously awaiting the release of The Devil’s Reprise with some trepidation – I loved the first book so much I feared it would never live up to […]
