Twilight – Stephenie Meyer

Twilight – Stephenie Meyer

Here we go, for some reason you lot have been hanging out for this rant from me. I have to get this out of my system before I do my quiz for uni. If you’re a fan you might want to leave right now…you have been warned. I now understand why 50 Shades of Grey is […]

Saving Francesca – Melina Marchetta

Starting a new school is really hard, I’ve started a new school and it was a big challenge, admittedly I was a little older than Francesca and I didn’t have her more major challenges of going from an all girls school to a boys school just starting to accept girls and I also didn’t have a mother […]

Majix by Douglas Reese

  This is part of my loot from Tez, you should read her blog as well. We have similar views on reading but hers are expressed more eloquently. It’s a Harlequin Teen book but I was assured before I picked it up that it’s not romance and Tez was mostly right as there is a […]

Gone – Michael Grant

This is the first in a series of books where all of a sudden there is no-one over the age of 15, it seems to be the magical number and as soon as you turn 15 you ‘wink out’ and go somewhere else.  It’s an interesting book in that it illustrates, at least for me, […]
