Amazing. Beautiful. Fantastic. Thrilling. Gorgeous. Brilliant. Honestly, I could go on and on with more words to describe this book but you get the idea right. This book passed the standards; it was miles better than Angel and gave us everything we wanted. A story filled with fiery passion, shocking twists, a love made in heaven and Angels.
The first book was so frikkin amazing, entertaining, refreshing and unique, so…

SWEETLY - JACKSON PEARCE - REVIEW

Book: Sweetly Author: Jackson Pearce Publisher: Hodder Chhildrens ISBN: 9781444900590 Rating: A+
As a child, Gretchen's twin sister was taken by a witch-like monster in the woods. Ever since, Gretchen and her brother, Ansel, have felt the long branches of the witch's forest threatening to make them disappear, too. When their stepmother casts Gretchen and Ansel out as teens, they stumble upon a sleepy Southern town and are invited to stay with Sophia Kelly at her sweet shop. Sophia moulds candied magic: coveted treats that inspire confidence, bravery, and passion. Life seems idyllic and Gretchen and Ansel finally start to forget their haunted past - until Gretchen meets handsome local outcast Samuel, who gives Gretchen a reason to fear Sophia: girls have been vanishing at Sophia's annual chocolate festival, taken by the insatiable 'witch' of Gretchen's nightmares. Can Gretchen save herself, the girls of Live Oak, and Sophia? Of one thing, Gretchen is certain: a monst…

HADES - ALEXANDRA ADORNETTO - REVIEW

Book: Hades Author: Alexandra Adornetto Publisher: ATOM ISBN: 9781907410772 Rating: B
Bethany Church is an angel sent to Earth to keep dark forces at bay. Falling in love was never part of her mission, but the bond between Beth and her mortal boyfriend, Xavier Woods, is undeniably strong. But even Xavier’s love, and the care of her archangel siblings, Gabriel and Ivy, can’t keep Beth from being tricked into a motorcycle ride that ends up in Hell. There, the demon Jake Thorn bargains for Beth’s release back to Earth. But what he asks of her will destroy her, and quite possibly, her loved ones, as well. 
Now, for the record I absolutely adored the first book in this series so I was ultra quick to grab this one and I felt it was good but not as good as the first one. The book is jam packed with action, adventure and beauty i just felt no enough happened for the amount of pages I read, but that aside it was fantastic. It love books with excess description, because it really makes you feel close…

THE GODDESS TEST - AIMEE CARTER - REVIEW

Book: The Goddess Test Author: Aimee Carter Publisher: Mira Ink ISBN: 9781848450400 Rating: A+
"It's always been just Kate and her mom--and now her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall. Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld--and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests. Kate is sure he's crazy--until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess. If she fails..."
The Goddess Test was one of these books that I had heard so much about from blogs around the world, but when I went to buy it I found that at the time it was only available in the USA so when I got an email regarding a b…

SEQUENCE BLOG TOUR: Q&A WITH ADRIAN DAWSON

What was your inspiration?
The original inspiration for ‘Sequence’ became the phrase which best describes the follow-up: ‘[Sequoia]’ – If you could travel back in time, knowing that you could not change one single event, just how far would you go? I wanted to write a time travel novel in which the science was accurate, the ramifications were believable and the end result seemingly pointless but ultimately shocking. I also wanted to create a scenario where people could travel back in time, could never return and could not change one single event in history. Why somebody might even bother intrigued me and I think that readers will find the reasons very surprising indeed.
How long did it take to write?
The planning of ‘Sequence’ took a couple of years, in amongst other writing. Because nothing about history – actual history or the fictional history of my characters – could be altered in any way, the novel became an extremely complex puzzle with diverse threads which needed to work togethe…

"A naked male, dead in an alley with bullets that make no sense. Fingerprints burned away, tattoos completely removed and a note, written in 13th Century Latin secreted about his person, along with the name and room number of an autistic psychiatric patient. Of all the possible avenues, the last road LAPD detective Nick Lambert wanted was the long drive to Oakdene to interview the girl. It gets much worse when he discovers 
that as well as being autistic, the girl is also mute. But when an off-hand comment from the nurse piques Nick’s attention, he can’t help but follow the lead. What he finds will slowly turn his entire world - his entire existence - upside down. Nick suddenly finds himself at the heart of a centuries old struggle to find - and hide - the kind of valuable information that mankind should never, ever be allowed to possess. It is only when Nick realises that he was a key pla…
