TEMPEST - JULIE CROSS - REVIEW

Book: tempest
Author: Julie Cross
Publisher: PanMacmillan
ISBN: 9780230756267
Rating: A


Jackson Meyer is hiding a secret. He can time-travel. But he doesn't know how he does it, how to control it or what it means. When Jackson, and his girlfriend Holly, find themselves in fatal danger, Jackson panics and catapaults himself two years into his past, further than he's ever managed before, and this time he can't find a way back to the future. All the rules of time-travel he's experienced so far have been broken and Jackson has no choice but to pretend to be his younger self whilst he figures out a solution. Jackson is tearing himself apart with guilt and frustration, wondering if Holly survived. He's also become the target of an unknown enemy force and it seems even his dad is lying to him. Jackson is racing against time to save the girl he loves, but to do that he must first discover the truth about his family and himself. And stay alive.


The hardest thing to do with time travel is to get the reader to understand your concept of how it works and Julie Cross aced it. This book literally blew me away. I've read many time trade books in the past such as Time Riders, and Day of the assassin but this had truly outshone them all. You know that moment when you come across a book that's just going to be amazing. This was more than just a moment with this book. This was an epic event.


The plot was so complex, and cross has definitely mastered the art of twist and turns. Definitely a unique plot. Haven't come across anything like it so far. So much action thought. It was jam packed full of everything you could want. Love, romance, making mistakes, action, fighting and time travel to top it all off.


I particularly like how it was written with the date and time at the top of each section. Beside that though the writing in general was really nice read swell. I flowed smoothly and the balance of description and dialogue was absolutely perfect, making it a very pleasant read. I felt so happy reading this book and a lot of it came down to the text.


The character were all so nice to read about. You felt so in touch with them. Like they were your friends. Whatever they felt, you felt. Favourite character... hmm... hard choice? Who am I kidding, it's Jackson! It's everything you want in a hero! Strong, cool, willing to save risks and always there to save the girl in danger. He was a strong character in the book and kept it all together. He was the focus point and I felt he had the most effort put into him, which is what made him such an amazing main character.


Overall this book was gorgeous read and I absolutely adored it! One word. Sequel?

Paige Mahoney has escaped the brutal penal colony of Sheol I, but her problems have only just begun: many of the fugitives are still missing and she is the most wanted person in London.

A COURT OF MIST AND FURY - SARAH J MAAS - REVIEW

Book:  A court of mist and fury
Author: Sarah J Maas
Publisher: Bloomsbury Kids
ISBN: 9781408857892
Rating: A

Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court – but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people.Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms – and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future – and the future of a world cleaved in two.

It has been a long time since I've loved a book as much this. A court of mist and fury is by far the best book that I have read in 2016 so far, and easy surpassed it's predecessor a court of thorn and roses.

The plot of this was so incredibly per…

Apologies and Explanations

Okay guys, we need to talk and by that I mean I have some apologies and explaining to do to you. So as you've more than obviously noticed I've been extremely inactive this year, even after promising I'd try to be more active. So now I'm going to explain why. By no means have I abandoned the blog nor do I want to. I seriously love this blog so much and connecting with you all and sharing my love for books and reading with you all. In fact it's really frustrating for me to be unable to devote the amount of time I'd like to to this blog. So to reader, authors and publishers, I'm insanely sorry for my lack of presence. Anyway apologies aside let me explain why it's been this way. Last September I started my first year of A levels and quite honestly I had no idea the amount of time they'd take up in my life and they did take up way loads of time. I found that not only did I have no time write blog posts but I had no time to read either, unless you count…
