This review will contain spoilers for The Hunger Games trilogy. Last week, whilst browsing NetGalley and eagerly awaiting the arrival of The Hunger Games on DVD (finally!), I spotted this. As I am a ridiculous fangirl, I instantly jumped at the chance to read more about Katniss, Peeta, Gale et al. As the first essay […]

Ever since I was young, I have been surrounded by books. My parents are both big readers, and I believe this encouraged my own passion for books (my mum will read anything, my dad loves sci-fi and thrillers). They read to us every night, which soon progressed to us reading to them, and staying up […]

I have to admit, I decided to read this because I enjoyed the film – but of course I didn’t go into it expecting any real similarities. I can see why the film is so different; a large majority of the book involves Neville going around his day-to-day life just to stay alive – fixing […]

I admire the author for choosing self-publishing over a publishing house. He clearly has a great passion for writing. He tackles some difficult and dark subjects, but as someone who suffered from depression for several years, to me it doesn’t feel like it is written by someone who has experienced these emotions. The last line […]

**spoiler alert** This review is quite hard to write, because I really wanted to enjoy this book. It was very promising to begin with – one thing I’ve noticed about many of the paranormal romances I’ve read, is that they’re very basically written. The authors tend to avoid description, and I was happy to see […]

I like to think that I’m a fast reader. Generally the speed at which I read a book – assuming I have the time – reflects how much I’m enjoying it. And although I did enjoy this book, it was such a slow read. I have no idea why, but it just seemed to drag, even […]

**spoiler alert** Although this book is actually a sequel, I did not feel at all hindered by the fact that I hadn’t read the first one. It pretty much jumps straight into fast-paced action, which I really liked, as well as flowing smoothly. I did feel as though the laboratory seemed to lack a lot of procedures […]
