Book: Nightshade Author: Andrea Cremer Publisher: ATOM books ISBN: 9781907410277 Rating: A+
She can control her pack, but not her heart ...'I wanted him to kiss me?wished he could smell the desire that I knew was pouring off me. You can't, Calla. This boy isn't the one for you. Calla Tor has always known her destiny: graduation, marriage and then a life leading her pack. But when she defies her masters' laws to save a human boy, she must choose. Is one boy worth losing everything?
This book blew me away. I was hooked from the moment I started to read it, so much that I devoured within days. It had a dangerous and seductive pull on me, putting me in the world of NIGHTSHADE. The Novel in itself is something new, but I loved it nevertheless. It’s a new take on the Dark Romance Genre, branching out from the vampires to Werewolves and Wra…

Radiance - Alyson Noel - Review

Book: Radiance ARC
Author: Alyson Noel
Publisher: PanMacmillan
ISBN: 9780330526913
Rating: A

Riley Bloom died, aged twelve, in a car crash with her parents and her beloved dog Buttercup. Her sister Ever survived – but that’s another story. Riley must let go of Ever and all the things that tied her to life – and discover what she’s meant to be in the afterlife. Riley is a soul catcher. That means helping the unhappy lost souls who stick around in the human realm to move on – and find their own place, over the bridge, in the great hereafter. With her spirit guide, Bodhi, and Buttercup by her side, Riley embarks on an adventure that will take her around the world – sending ghosts back where they belong, until she can finally make it there herself.

Radiance is an amazing novel that gripped me from the moment I started reading, and within hours I had devoured it. The perspective of the novel is very different but one that young teens can relate to. I always wanted to know more about Riley, so wh…

Infinite Days - Rebecca Maizel - Review

Book: Infinite Days Author: Rebecca Maizel Publisher: Macmillan ISBN: 9780230749009 Rating: A+
For 500 years Lenah Beaudonte has been a vampire. 500 years of seduction, blood and destruction. But she is sickened by her dark powers - and longs to feel the sun on her skin, grass under her bare feet, and share the breath of a human kiss. She wants to be mortal again. But is she really capable of being human, after her long years of darkness? Waking up as a sixteen-year-old girl brings Lenah many things - the life she has missed, taste, touch, love. But a vampire soul is not easily shed. And her coven - the four vampires she led in decadence and thrilling destruction - want their queen back...
Infinite Days was definitely different to any other vampire book I have ever read. It certainly had a nice twist where it involved the magic but not so much that it became a magic book. I loved the way it evolved over a long period of time as I think so many authors try the keep the time slow but Maizel h…

“A Quirky, Fast Paced Thriller, With a Twist!”
I have to admit I understand the commotion over this book. It was different to what I expected but still amazing. I loved how it’s part of the fallen angel but not at the same time because they not fallen, just very very evil. From the moment I engaged in the book I loved it. It was a quirky, fast paced thriller with a twist, and I hav…

Desperate Measures - Laura Summers - Review

Book: Desperate Measures
Author: Laura Summers
Publisher: Piccadilly Press
ISBN: 9781848120501
Rating: B+


Vicky and Rhianna are twins but they couldn’t be more different. For their fourteenth birthday, Vicky wants a card from the hottest boy in school. Rhianna, brain-damaged at birth, wants a Furby. Instead they get a nasty shock – their foster parents can’t cope and it looks as if Vicky and Rhianna and their younger brother Jamie will have to be split up. How can they stay together? Desperate times call for desperate measures… Exciting, fast-moving and deeply affecting, this innovative story is Laura Summers’ first novel.


This book was very different from my usual reading list, and i was actually drawn in by the cover. Not by the blurb or whatnot. Anyway, i am so glad that i read this. It will stay with me forever because it is amazing. It goes over the main aspect of life situation that quite often children are put in.


I found it very touching, especially the fact that Re is brain damaged.…

Ash - Malinda Lo - Review

Book: Ash
Author: Malinda Lo
Publisher: Hodder
ISBN: 9780340988374
Rating: B-








In the wake of her father’s death, Ash is left at the mercy of her cruel stepmother. Consumed with grief, her only joy comes by the light of the dying hearth fire, re-reading the fairy tales her mother once told her. In her dreams, someday the fairies will steal her away, as they are said to do. When she meets the dark and dangerous fairy Sidhean, she believes that her wish may be granted.
The day that Ash meets Kaisa, the King’s Huntress, her heart begins to change. Instead of chasing fairies, Ash learns to hunt with Kaisa. Though their friendship is as delicate as a new bloom, it reawakens Ash’s capacity for love—and her desire to live. But Sidhean has already claimed Ash for his own, and she must make a choice between fairy tale dreams and true love
Ash... I really did like this book. It’s an original retelling of Cinderella with a twist. Not only does Ash have a fairy (godfather who wants to marry her) but {SPO…

Linger - Maggie Stiefvater - Review

Sorry about the big gap above - blogger is always causing problems.
Book: Linger
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
Publisher: Scholastic 
ISBN: 9781407121086
Rating: A+


In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. Now, in Linger, they must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping a very dangerous secret about her own well-being. For Sam, this means grappling with his werewolf past . . . and figuring out a way to survive into the future. Add into the mix a new wolf named Cole, whose own past has the potential to destroy the whole pack. And Isabelle, who already lost her brother to the wolves . . . and is nonetheless drawn to Cole. At turns harrowing and euphoric, Linger is a spellbinding love story that explores both sides of love - the light and the dark, the warm and the cold - in a way you will never forget.


I thoroughly enjoyed Linger. As usual it didn’t lack stiefvater’s usual use of amazing detail that makes it so life like and realistic.…

Dru Anderson: Night Hunter. Knife Wielder. Heart Breaker. Dru can sense evil, which helps when she and her Dad are tracking down ghosts, suckers, wulfen, and the occasional reanimated corpse. It's a dangerous life, but it's the only one she knows. Then Dru's dad turns up dead and she suddenly finds herself in the middle of a deadly game where every move she makes could be her last. Dru is more special than she realizes - and whatever killed her dad could be coming for her next. Can Dru stay alive long enough to fall for one - or both - of the guys hungry for her affections? Find out in the heart-stopping first book in a thrilling series.


I absolutely loved this book so much. This intense atmosphere, and they way Christophe and Graves were totally enemies on the same side. Who needs Buffy, when you can have Dru.

"Who needs Buffy"
This is the basic love triangle story with a fantasy…

I really love this cover so I made a fanmade one. As you can see I've sort of followed the theme - but I can't decide which one I like more. Mine or the Original. Click on either for a larger view.

I heart this cover so much so I made a fanmade which is not nearly as good as the original.

Knife - R.J. Anderson - Review

The reason this review is so short is because the book was so amazing I was stuck for words.


Book: Knife
Author: R.J. Anderson
Publisher: Orchard Books
ISBN: 9781408303122
Rating: A

Once upon a time, a fairy is born. She lives in an old oak tree at the bottom of a garden with the rest of the fairy folk. Never has she known a time when life hasn't been hard, with many dangers and much adversity. But when she becomes the Hunter of the group and learns to do battle in the outside world, her adventures really take off...Don't read this book if you're expecting fairy dust - the last thing Knife is likely to wield is a magic wand...


This book found its way to my heart, where it is under lock and keep.
Not many ways to describe this book. Took me two days to write the review and let me tell you this book was amazing – I cannot wait to read the next two and for the fourth one to come out.
The book is a sort about trust and loyalty in a sense. It is about a faery who basically wants more ou…
