Book Review: Scythe by Neil Schusterman

Scythe is a book that has taken the UK book blogging community by storm. It is much-beloved by our US pals, and the highly anticipated sequel has just been released in the States. I was really looking forward to this book, however I ended up a little let down by the lackluster characters and plot.


Flash Reviews: Science Fiction Classics

So I have been reading a lot lately.  Seriously, a lot.  And while I’ve been trying to dedicate myself to writing a review for every single book I read, that’s just not really possible.  Sometimes, regardless of my feelings for a book, I just can’t quite come up with a full-length review! This is neither a good thing nor a bad thing -- it just means I can sum up my feelings quickly.

Book Review: The Diviners by Libba Bray

The Diviners is a book that has been on my radar for absolute ages.  It was brought to my attention again thanks to the book blogging community, and I’m so glad I picked it up.  It is a difficult one to rate, though.  I really loved it -- seriously, it has been one of my most enjoyable reading experiences I’ve had in a long time -- but I don’t think it’s a perfect book.  In fact, I feel like there’s a lot of room for improvement.

Blog Tour: Paris Adrift by E. J. Swift

I'm so happy to be part of the Paris Adrift blog tour!  This weird and wonderful book is one that has stuck with me long after reading. So let’s start out by saying that Paris Adrift is a very strange and surreal book.  If the surreal isn’t your thing, I’d suggest approaching with caution.  However if you’re in the mood for something a little different, Paris Adrift could be your perfect read.

ARC Review: I Am Thunder by Muhammad Khan

By now you guys know that I am not a fan of contemporary YA books.  I just don’t have much of an interest in modern teenagers and their teenage lives.  However, I Am Thunder caught my eye because it deals with the radicalization of British teens by religious extremists.  I figured it would shape up to be an important book, so I cautiously decided to give it a shot.

Review: The Silent Companions by Laura Purcell

The Silent Companions had been sitting quietly on my Kindle for months when Author Sister recommended it.  She had purchased the hardcover and absolutely devoured it -- it ticks a lot of boxes for both of us. I decided to pick up her copy to beat back some of the post-holiday fatigue and was floored by this modern gothic novel.
