Torn by Natalia Jaster

I am very lucky to be on Natalia Jaster’s ARC team but I honestly wasn’t expecting to get the chance to read Torn ahead of its release date (June 20th) because for some silly reason, I had it in my head that I was only on the team for her Foolish Kingdoms series! So when this little beauty found its way into my inbox last month I may have screeched […]

Touch by Natalia Jaster

Have I mentioned lately how much I love Natalia Jaster’s writing? It’s actually hard to believe Touch was her debut novel.

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 […]
