    Wow. Michael Grant knows how to write cliffhangers. And how! For a bit I drifted through Hunger thinking I didn’t care for it as much as Gone. There’s a lot going on, but ultimately it is a sequel book. Sequels are almost always not as good as the first book. The mystery is…

    It took me two years after the release date to pick up Michael Grant’s Gone. It took me all of 36 hours to devour it. I’ve had customers telling me how amazing it is, and it is just that. Amazing. Sam Temple is sitting in class one day when his teacher disappears. Some…

    Last year I fell in love with The Hunchback Assignments. It was my favourite book of the year. I received my ARC of the sequel, The Dark Deeps, yesterday at work. I, literally, devoured it overnight. It was that good.

  Here’s an experiment – go to your local book store and stand in the Young Adult area. Randomly throw a rock. Chances are you will hit a book with a love triangle in it. Odds are pretty good that it has a Werewolf theme to it too. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer has both of…

  …Okay, okay… I know. I’m a year behind schedule on reading this one. I blame rereading the series, and knowing it was the last one. I savoured it until I needed it. That said… wow. I’m so happy. I waited for this for years, and I’m thrilled.

So, I’ve been reading a lot of mixed reviews about Nancy Holzner’s Deadtown. People seem to either love it or hate it. The biggest gripe comes from some obvious resemblances to Kim Harrison‘s Rachel Morgan books. Having recently read those I can see some similarities; the vampire roommate, the supernatural boyfriend, the plague killing off…

I’ve waited to read this book since discovering The Cabinet of Wonders last year. It was one of my absolute favourite reads of 2008. Adored it. Utterly. I’m thrilled to death. The sequel, The Celestial Globe, was worth the wait.

Ok, I finished all four of the Blue Bloods books in 6 days. So that says something. However, the fourth book, The Van Alen Legacy, is a very different book from the rest of the series. It deviates from the established formula set up for the Blue Bloods. In every book the storyline follows three…

  Wow…these books are getting good. Not just good, but better. How is that possible? I think we can attribute this to good writing. That said, Melissa de la Cruz’s Blue Bloods¬†series is shaping up to be more than your average YA vampire series. In the last few books de la Cruz has really fleshed…
