Book Reviews





Books I cant wait to read in 2014

Here are the books I will be racing around the bookshops for in 2014!

(Don't You) Forget About Me - Kate Karyus Quinn

Just one glance at the blurb had me marking this as "to read" straight away - teens infected by deadly urges in a seemingly perfect town, strange mysteries, female lead with a dark past. YES PLEASE! June just cannot come quick enough!

Red Rising - Pierce Brown

I missed out on an ARC of this and I was so disappointed! Early reviews have been really positive about this dystopian class war. There have been Hunger Games comparisons, but to me, that means it can only be a good read! I'm waiting patiently. So. Very. Patiently!

Black Moon - Kenneth Colbourn

The world has stopped sleeping. As insomniacs become more and more desperate, few sleepers can be found. They have learnt to hide. One day, sleeper Matt wakes to find his insomniac wife missing... GIMME! The plot premise sounds amazing.

We Used To Be Kings - Stewart Foster

"Six years ago Tom’s brother died. The next day he came back." << If that isn't cause for me to be grabbing this book off of the shelves, I don't know what is! However, it gets even more intriguing, as Tom's brother lives inside his head, and they need to work together to get out of the care home for troubled children in order to remember the truth of their past, and their parents.

The Three - Sarah Lotz

There's barely any info to be found about this book at the moment, but here's what I do know: 4 planes crash, 4 people survive. Three of them are children, seemingly unhurt. The fourth is a woman who lives just long enough to record a message on her phone. This message changes everything. ARGHHHH I need this!

What books are you looking forward to this year? There were so many on my list, I couldn't list them all!

    Apart from (Don't You) Forget About Me, these are all new to me!

    I'm LOVING the cover of We Used to be Kings. And those two sentences...! I'm definitely going to keep my eyes peeled for that one.

    The Three sounds like an awesome way to spend a weekend. I'm always up for a good thriller. :)

  2. I'm so excited for these books, and it was so hard just choosing a top 5! Glad I could introduce you to something new :) Thanks for stopping by! x

  3. Saw this great review of Red Rising at The Midnight Garden and I've been dying to get my hands on it since then. Got to love a good dystopian read! :)
    I'm really looking forward to Ignite Me and Split Second-Can't wait to get my hands on these two.

  4. I've seen loads of great reviews for Red Rising too! - not long to wait :D x

  5. Really looking forward to Don't You Forget About Me too! :)

    My can't wait books for this year are: Dorothy Must Die, Torn Away, Lies My Girlfriend Told Me and so much more! It's so difficult to just name a few!

    Thanks for the list! :)

  6. We Used To Be Kings sounds epic and ASDLKG The Three? Whoa.
    I now have Simple Minds stuck in my head but Don't You Forget About Me sounds like one helluva weird book, obviously in the good way.
    Also love the cover deign for Black Moon.
    However, I have no idea what I'm looking forward to. Failing the book world, I have an endless list of films that that I honestly can't wait for (Fault in Our Stars being one)
    2014 is going to be an awesome year!

  7. I can't wait for all of these releases, I'm jumping up and down for them! hehe. You have some great picks too :) - Happy reading! x

  8. I need to get my hands on The Three. Like, NOW. haha!
    Don't You Forget About Me seems a popular one, cannot wait :D
    Ahh, I'm stocking up on tissues for TFIOS films already...!
