Awesomely cute! There's not many cooking/baking books you can actually look through from cover to cover like a 'normal' book but the amazing creations, vibrant colours and yummy pictures makes this book stand out from the others. An essential for any cupcake maker! Continue reading

A sign of a good book? Reading it straight through in an evening, pausing only to grab a drink or food. Well, that's what I did with this one because I literally couldn't put it down! The Henderson's Boys series is pretty much a prequel to the CHERUB series. CHERUB... Continue reading

Massively excited because the new Henderson's Boys book "Secret Army" came in the post today! The Henderson's Boys series is kind of a prequel series to CHERUB, telling the story of how the organisation came to be. Better still, I thought this one was going to be the last of... Continue reading

I actually enjoyed this book more than I expected. The title and cover put me off a little but the plot summary caught my attention so I thought I'd give it a try. The main character, Miri, has wonderful depth, making you care about what happens to her. The descriptions... Continue reading

Mixed opinions about this book. It had a reasonably good plot with a few twists and turn and is clearly well researched but I wasn't so keen on some of the characters. In fact the main character, Mercy, annoyed me a lot of the time - she just seemed a... Continue reading

Typical teen fiction that has so many things in it that I don't like in a book but somehow I really liked it! It's Twilight without emo-girl and sparkley vampires. It's vampire Mean Girls meets Buffy. It's so wrong that it's right! How could I not love a country music... Continue reading

I'm not usually a chick lit fan but as I'd read the Nanny Diaries and this was a preview copy, I figured I'd give it a shot. Nan returns to NYC about 10 years after her nanny days. Grayer is now a teenager and makes contact after finding the video... Continue reading

Great sequel to Uglies. Really well written sci-fi yong adult fiction. This is a book that can be enjoyed just as a good story as well as having a more deeper level to it. (some minor spoilers from the first book follow) Tally is pretty - something that happens to... Continue reading

This book is exciting adventure sci-fi at it's best! It's futuristic, post-humans-almost-destroy-the-world and pretty awesome. In places it reminded me of Orwell's 1984, Alex Garland's The Beach and the video game Fallout 3. I love all three and combined with a good handful of teen drama, this book was brilliant....
