“Last Night in Montreal” by Emily St. John Mandel is a well written story of Lillia, a young woman on the run. I enjoyed hearing her story and devoured it in a few days. A nice 4 star read for me!… Read More Book Review: Last Night in Montreal by Emily St. John Mandel

Book Review: Falling into Place by Amy Zhang

“Falling into Place” is a sad story which tackles some difficult subjects, from bullying to drug use to suicide. It’s certainly not a happy read and is quite emotional at times. Unfortunately this book wasn’t for me, I couldn’t connect with the main character and this seriously affected how I felt about the whole thing – 1 star.… Read More Book Review: Falling into Place by Amy Zhang

Book Review: The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell

“The Bone Clocks” was a massive disappointment. Full of characters I didn’t care for and plot points that didn’t have any relevance to the story whatsoever, I struggled to finish this book and am glad to have returned it to the library. Holly Sykes was a great character but those around her didn’t add much to the story and just made it drag on and on and on. I didn’t hate it, but I couldn’t love it so “The Bone Clocks” gets 2 stars from me.… Read More Book Review: The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell

Book Review: Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

I know I’m in the minority here but I really couldn’t get into this book. In a post apocalyptic world, a group of travelling musicians and actors wasn’t enough to keep my gripped or engaged.

Book Review: Nod by Adrian Barnes

An excellent concept that couldn’t quite deliver what I wanted it to. I felt as though this was a book of two parts and I’d have preferred the first to continue in a more “normal” manner. I’m giving Adrian Barnes’ “Nod” 3 stars for its strange unanswered second half and perhaps, as I’ve heard they exist, I’m going to have a look into alternative sleep related Apocalypses.… Read More Book Review: Nod by Adrian Barnes
