Lord of Shadows – Cassandra Clare

A great second book that ended with such a shocking twist it took me a few weeks and a severe reading slump to get over it. I cannot wait to see how the story progresses in Queen of Air and Darkness.

Phoenix Descending – Dorothy Dreyer*

Afamiliar storyline to fans of fantasy YA but with enough differences and pace to make it an enjoyable and exciting read. It certainly got me out of my slump!

Origin – Dan Brown

I loved the topic covered, In Origin yet again Dan Brown has focused in on a subject that is VERY relevant in today’s media and taken it a stage further, adding an element of the sinister in there for good measure.

The Girl in the Tower -Katherine Arden*

The PACE! It could be slow at times but The Girl in the Tower kept up a steady pace from the off. Coupled with the gradual building of suspense there were times when I couldn’t put it down.

The Dressmaker’s Secret – Charlotte Betts*

An enjoyable and light-hearted page turner that I really enjoyed whilst on our Italian Adventure.

Dating the It Guy – Krysten Lindsay Hager*

Overall I enjoyed the book, it’s not a genre I would usually pick up and I don’t think I will in the near future, but saying that the story was entertaining and enjoyable and I am glad I had the opportunity to try it.

One of Us Is Lying – Karen M. McManus

It’s like a Dan Brown novel for YA readers, a mystery/thriller that keeps you guessing right to the very end, and whether you guessed right or not, you won’t really care as the ride it so enjoyable.
