Dear Charlie by N.D. Gomes Blog Tour

Dear Charlie by N.D. Gomes Blog Tour

Take a controversial topic away from it’s expected location, and the results could seem unrealistic. That’s not the case with N.D. Gomes début novel, Dear Charlie as she takes an all-too familiar news story in America and transfers it to 90’s UK. Sixteen year old Sam should be living the teen dream of college, socialising, […]

Ace Of Spiders by Stefan Mohamed

Ace Of Spiders by Stefan Mohamed

The long-awaited follow-up to Stefan Mohamed’s brilliant Bitter Sixteen has arrived. And it’s just as good as it’s predecessor. I was really fortunate to get a copy of Stefan Mohamed’s Bitter Sixteen last year, and by lucky, I mean “Holy Moly. What have I just read?” lucky. The exploits of Stanly (no ‘E’) Bird and […]

The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

Another week, another YA time-travel book. And unfortunately, following on from Alexandra Bracken’s ‘Passenger‘, ‘The Girl From Everywhere’ is another one that fails to add much to either genre.

I’m rarely blind-sided by a novel – I can usually get a […]

Da Vinci’s Tiger by L.M. Elliot

Da Vinci’s Tiger by L.M. Elliot

Historical fiction has long been a mainstay of YA novels, but has there been one as meticulously researched and beautifully written as ‘Da Vinci’s Tiger’? Disclosure: I am a massive nerd for anything based on the Renaissance period. I adore it. I’ve read Machiavelli’s ‘The Prince’ many times, the Medici family fascinates me (far more […]

Mosquitoland by David Arnold

Mosquitoland by David Arnold

Mosquitoland, the debut work from David Arnold, shows us that just because you’re a confused kid, it doesn’t mean you have to be horrible with it. Last week I reviewed the sub-par ‘Silence Is Goldfish‘ by Annabel Pitcher; disappointed by it’s unsympathetic main character, I found it lacking in substance and meaningful characters, a surprise […]
