About this time last year, I got into reading a lot of erotica/erotic romance - ssh, don't judge me, the British winters are cold and lonely :P But I stopped pretty quickly because there was so much bad. Most of my reviews were 1 star rants and, let' ...more

Hmm, so there's a girl whose name is a colour (Violet) and a boy whose name makes him sound like he burst from the pages of a Dickens' novel (Theodore Finch) and they're both super quirky, intelligent and know the names of a bunch of dead poets. Then ...more

You know all the ways you can kill a girl?
God, there are so many.


This story... these characters... those words... Courtney Summers has done it again.

I don't think, on the whole, I am a person who is afraid of much. I'd even go so far as to say I ha

Every time I blink, it feels as if another negative reaction to Burned pops up on Goodreads. You can find review after review of complaints about the direction Moning took here and I'm going to be completely honest with you: I expected this book to b ...more

I was torn between rating this 1 star because it is ridiculous, and 5 stars because it is possibly the most I've laughed in months. And yeah, I actually downloaded it from smashwords and read it because I am a masochist like that. Truly side-splittin ...more

Honestly... Courtney Summers is pure EVIL. And she needs to write more! Damn it!

Never Never by Colleen Hoover
Never Never (Never Never, #1)

I must say... even though I've had many issues with Hoover's books in the past, she and Tarryn Fisher have weaved one hell of a compelling tale here.

The only real downside to this first installment is how quickly it was over, leaving us hanging with

Marcus Sedgwick is nuts. I love him.

I can see already why this book won't be for everyone. It's like a Cloud Atlas for young adults. Complex, mind-bending and thought-provoking. I don't even know how to classify this book. It is essentially four very

Part emotional contemporary, part survival story; part deeply sad, but part a story of hope against the odds. In short: this is one strong YA debut.

I've been turned off by many of the contemporary YA novels due to be released in 2015, all of which se

Mark Twain

J.M. Barrie
“To die would be an awfully big adventure.”
J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Douglas Adams
“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
