The Book Thief By Markus Zusak

I loved this book. The characters, the way it was written and the narration by death. It is the most incredible book I have read in my short life. Markus Zusak is a highly talented author and I look forward to reading more of his work. As a student, I have always heard the facts… Continue reading The Book Thief By Markus Zusak

Mockingjay By Suzanne Collins

This is the final book in the Hunger Games Trilogy and it was pretty disappointing. The beginning was good, it tied in well with the previous books, the rebelling in the districts having hit huge new heights, Peeta was kidnapped and so on. I just found that the ending was really abrupt. I believe we… Continue reading Mockingjay By Suzanne Collins

Catching Fire By Suzanne Collins

Catching fire was, well, brutal. I enjoyed the second book in the hunger games series, the darkness, betrayal, hopelessness and mindless savagery. That may sound psychotic, but it is the appeal of these books.

It has no name, why would it need one… Continue reading A Single Stone By Meg McKinlay

A fact she has come to terms with over the years, her oxygen tank has become a sorely needed companion… Continue reading The Fault in our Stars By John Green

Everything, Everything By Nicola Yoon

I liked this book, but it won’t hit my favourites list. The storyline was simple and easy to digest with everything a good story needs, the plot twist, romance, conflict, and a happy ending. The part of this book I couldn’t get my head around was the editing. I was told once that as soon… Continue reading Everything, Everything By Nicola Yoon
