GENRE: YA Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Romance
PUBLISHING DATE: November 10, 2015 by Feiwel & Friends

Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.

Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won’t approve of her feelings for her childhood friend—the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn’t as weak as Levana believes her to be and she’s been undermining her stepmother’s wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that’s been raging for far too long.

Movie Game – Book Review

The Book Review Directory

With a distinct Ferris Bueller feel for circumstantially created chaos, Michael Ebner’s main character is one of the most likeable teenagers I’ve ever met. He’s arrogant, pretentious as hell and a thoroughly bad role-model, and he is utterly compelling, hilarious and intriguing to watch.

Joe killed the flame and took the stairs. On the quiet street, cigarette in his mouth, he lit up, took one drag then gave it to gravity. Joe wasn’t a serious smoker; he just liked the motions: the theatrics of blazing up after suburban shakedowns. It was part of his crusade on movie talkers.

Silk & Scholar – Book Review

All Romance Reads

silk & scholar

This is Book 4 in the Silk series, but stands perfectly well alone. And it is an absolute delight.

Etta Wilding-Marsh is a very unconventional young lady indeed. The daughter of a Cambridge don, she longs to study the law, an utter impossibility for a woman in the Regency era. She has only disdain for the irresponsible young men who take for granted that which she may never have, and her particular ire is reserved for Lord Christopher Hiddleston.

Watch Me – Book Review

The Book Review Directory

Thank you to Joanne at MyChestnutReadingTree and Avon Books for my copy of his book which I won in their competition. I really really wanted to read this book, as I had so enjoyed the prequel to it ‘Follow Me’ which I reviewed HERE! (Follow MeBook Review)

I gave ‘Follow Me’ 5 stars on Goodreads, and I will be doing exactly the same for ‘Watch me’. As social media murder books they are brilliant.

Although ‘Watch Me’ can be read as a standalone, I recommend reading ‘Follow Me’ first as its amazing.

Bone Witch – Book Review

The Book Review Directory

Bone Witch (2017, Sourcebooks Fire, Young Adult Fantasy) by Rin Chupeco

When I finish a book and review it, I also post on sites such as Amazon and GoodReads which gives me a chance to see what other people are thinking about the book too.

If I really love a book, I’m always eager to check out reviews and see if everyone else loved it as much as I did.

So after reading Bone Witch, I rushed over to GoodReads only to discover most reviewers did not enjoy this book. I was so confused, how could someone not love this book?
