The Rest of Us Just Live Here was my first ever Patrick Ness read, and I have to say I’m very impressed. In a letter to the reader, Ness explains that he wanted to explore how it is not to be the chosen one. You know, the people who just live in that one town where strange things always seem to be happening. They’re not exploring alternate dimensions or saving the world – they’re trying to figure out their lives and they hope the […]

Discussion Review by Melanie and Larissa *this review is spoiler-free*  Growing up, I believed in miracles. I guess I don’t anymore. Larissa: The author’s ability to immerse me in this story was incredible. I could definitely feel the claustrophobic nature of both the cult and prison setting. For me it elevated the novel in a way that can only be described as harrowing. Melanie: Yes!! I absolutely adored Oakes’ writing. I read it in one sitting because it’s one of those books that suck […]

Thanks Xpresso Book Tours for hosting this tour! Click here for the rest of the tour. Miranda Kenneally’s Hundred Oaks is one of those super cute, swoon-worthy contemporaries that you can pick up at any point in the series, and love them just as much as the next person. For me, I started reading her books since Racing Savannah (book 4) and this book, Jesse’s Girl is undoubtedly my favourite one up to date. While the first 5 books have all been about sports, this one is different […]

Fangirl Discussion Review by Mel and Celine *This is a spoiler-free review* Celine: Can I just say how much I loved this one?! Mel: Yes omg I cannot get over how brilliant this one is.

That pretty much sums up all of […]

It’s been 3.5 weeks since I’ve read Magonia and since then I have bought this book for 2 people, recommended it to all of my friends, given away a copy as a Twitter giveaway and broken my book buying ban (that only managed to last 3 days) to buy myself the hardcover of the book. So I guess it’s safe to say that I really really like this book. They weren’t kidding when they said that Maria Dahvana Headley’s writing is comparable to the works of Neil […]

Thanks to The Fantastic Flying Book Club for hosting this tour! Click here to follow the rest of the tour. If I were to list all the reasons why I think everyone should read The Summer of Chasing Mermaids, we’d be here till we all were just a pile of skin and bones. Since I don’t want that to happen, here’s just 5 of the main reasons why Sarah Ockler’s new book is glorious: 1. It’s a contemporary novel that’s a loose retelling of The Little […]

Discussion Review by Celine and Mel *This is a spoiler-free review* Mel: Liars, Inc. was exactly what I was hoping it to be – a thriller that was actually unpredictable, nail-biting and totally kickass. Celine: Yes! Liars, inc. surprised me, both in terms of plot and how much I enjoyed it. I’m usually not a fan of thrillers/mysteries because they usually choose plot over characters. Mel: Haha I’m the complete opposite, girl. I ADORE ALL ZE MYSTERY THRILLERS! It’s one of my […]

I have read Hodge’s debut novel, Cruel Beauty, twice, one time disliking it and one time loving it. They were very different reading experiences, but one thing remained the same: Rosamund Hodge knows how to build a complex and intricate world, and she can write. She continues this trend with her latest, Crimson Bound. I fell in love with Crimson Bound from the very first sentence. Hodge’s writing is distant and atmospheric, wild and lush. There is a certain quality to it that completely immerses […]
