Ekta explains how she ‘immediately wanted to read more’ of Derek Landy’s ‘Demon Road’.

If you loved the razor-sharp wit and supernatural action that made ‘Skulduggery Pleasant’ the must-buy series it was, then prepare to get sucked into another Derek Landy creation: ‘Demon Road‘.

What first attracted you to ‘Demon Road’? I don’t typically read horror books, but I read a sampler I picked up at YALC and immediately wanted to read more and find out what happened to Amber and why her parents wanted to kill her.

Fave character? Definitely Milo. He’s got a very interesting past, and even now in the present he’s still a bit of a mystery. Continue reading Ekta explains how she ‘immediately wanted to read more’ of Derek Landy’s ‘Demon Road’.

Josephine Angelini has an ‘amazing way with words’ Miriam shares her thoughts on ‘Firewalker’.

‘Firewalker’ is the blazing sequel to ‘Trial By Fire’ , a story of parallel universes, magic and one girl trying to make sense of it all. The blurb says it’s a “another sexy, fast-paced, heartbreaking thrill ride from internationally bestselling author Josephine Angelini” – and we want to see how many MP!ers out there agree with that.

Miriam got a copy flopped onto her doorstep in exchange for this dazzling honest review.

Have you read any of Josephine Angelini’s books before this? If not, would you consider it now? Before I was sent the Worldwalker books, I hadn’t read any of Josephine Angelini’s other books. However, I do remember a lot of news on MyKindaBook when ‘Trial by Fire’ came out. I never got around to reading the books until now but I’m glad I did! I’ll definitely give her other books a go now! :) Continue reading Josephine Angelini has an ‘amazing way with words’ Miriam shares her thoughts on ‘Firewalker’.

Have you read any of Josephine Angelini’s books before this? If not, would you consider it now? I’d only read the first book in the ‘Starcrossed’ trilogy before but I really enjoyed it, and now I really want to finish that series!

Did this book meet your expectations? Yes! I didn’t really know what it was about before I started reading so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I really enjoyed it. The story’s really fast paced and interesting, and there was just the right amount of romance for my taste.

‘It was such an unusual way to write and present the story’ Rachel reviews Patrick Ness’ ‘The Rest Of Us Just Live Here’.

If you’re looking for your next favourite read, then you may have just found it.

Patrick Ness, author of the award-winning ‘Chaos Walking’ trilogy, never seems to stop. Having won every major award in children’s fiction there is, and being described as an “insanely beautiful writer” by none other than YA royalty John Green, there seems to be no slowing this lit powerhouse down.

‘My eyeballs became more moist than usual’ MP!er Emily reviews Robin Benway’s ‘Emmy & Oliver’.

‘Emmy & Oliver’ is an unusual read. To look at it, you would expect it to be like any YA romance – cute, funny, with a little bit of teenage angst added in for good measure. However, Robin Benway’s latest YA novel throws us a curve ball: the return of a kidnapped child, Oliver, 10 years after he was last seen.
