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 […]

He is a kid who seems to have everything going […]

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

I loved Maggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Boys (see my glowing review here) and I had high hopes for the sequel even though at the same time I also dreaded that it may not live up to my inordinately high expectations. I am pleased that not only did it manage to exceed all of my expectations, I loved the book even more than the first (even if I wished to get […]
