Ember in the Ashes_final

AN EMBER IN THE ASHES by Sabaa Tahir

‘It’s very well written, set in a terrifying world full of brutality, and although I am not a fan of the love triangle (will I be strung up for this?), it was a thrilling story that left me wanting more.’

– Vanessa, Publishing Assistant

‘This novel may be violent and unforgiving, but it’s fast-paced and intriguing and is completely unpredictable.’

– Jess, Publicist

‘A tense, action-packed and gripping thriller that kept me reading way past my bedtime!’

– Amanda, Publicist

Untitled-2IT’S ABOUT LOVE by Steven Camden

‘I picked this up the other day and kept reading it because every once in a while there is a character in the books that thinks exactly like you do and for me, it was Luke (yes, he’s a sixteen year old boy and I’m a twenty-eight year old girl… I apparently have issues). It’s a sweet read that wasn’t overkill on the romance, and I enjoyed being a part of Luke’s thought process as he navigates falling in love and accepting his past.’

– Vanessa, Publishing Assistant

 

A Darker Shade final for Irene

A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC by V.E. Schwab

‘There are markets and masquerades, sadistic rulers, sword fights and epic battles – it’s a brilliant read, with a great storyline and even better characters and my favourite so far of 2015.’

– Vanessa, Publishing Assistant

SIMON VS. THE HOMO SAPIENS AGENDA by Becky Albertalli

‘This book is so good, I wish I wrote it. Apart from being a witty, clever, and unique story, the romance in this novel is subtle and progresses realistically – it isn’t mushy or over the top, meaning you can read it in one sitting without wanting to gouge your eyes out’

– Jess, Publicist

‘An incredibly sweet, funny and adorable high school romance.’

– Amanda, Publicist

 

Untitled-2

THE HEIR by Kiera Cass

‘This book is like a nice, beautiful piece of chocolate cake, goes away far too quickly and after you’re finished you’re upset and demanding more!’

– Shontell, National Accounts Assistant

‘OMG I love these books. The sparkly romance is everything you want and more! I need to know who Eadlyn will pick!’

– GuyReadsYA

 

we-all-looked-up-book-cover

WE ALL LOOKED UP by Tommy Wallach

‘A brilliant “What If” tale. The end of the world has never been so well-planned and beautifully tragic.’

– GuyReadsYA
