Review: Vengeful

Review: Vengeful

If you haven’t read V.E. Schwab’s Vicious yet, then you simply MUST. Not only is it an incredible work of fiction, but after a four and half year wait, it has a sequel, Vengeful. When I ‘reviewed’ Vicious on Goodreads a few years ago, all I could manage were two words “bloody brilliant”. That statement […]

Review: WaR: Wizards and Robots

Review: WaR: Wizards and Robots

Well, for the first third of WaR: Wizards and Robots I thought my brain might explode – wizards, robots, high school kids, three times in space – I was somewhat overwhelmed! But once I started to get my head around things I actually quite enjoyed the story – it certainly is action packed! I made […]

Review: Zenith

Review: Zenith

It’s hard to know what to say about Zenith because while, overall, I enjoyed the story well enough, I just wasn’t really a fan of its execution.

Waking Gods follows a similar format to Sleeping Giants, a dossier of interviews and transcripts which tell the story. […]

Review: Kindred, A Graphic Novel Adaptation

Review: Kindred, A Graphic Novel Adaptation

Kindred by Octavia E. Butler is one of those books that has always been on my radar, but I’ve just never got around to reading. So when I saw there was to be a graphic novel adaptation, I thought it the perfect time to familiarise myself with the story – and swoon over the artwork […]

Review: Gemina

Review: Gemina

    Ok, first things first, this is the second book in The Illuminae Files series. If you haven’t read book one, Illuminae, then check out my post about it or just go and read the book itself. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! Either way, if you haven’t read Illuminae then stop reading this right […]

Review: The Race

Review: The Race

The Race was previously published by a small press and was nominated for a number of awards. This new edition from Titan actually features a brand new story set within the world of The Race. How on earth do I describe this book? While it may be classed as a novel, it’s more of a […]
