  • "Brilliant"

    Overall

    I LOVED this book, LOVED it. I rant on about the powerless, obsessive female leads in YA literature these days, the Bella’s of the world who are destined to be with a boy, who would do anything at 16 to stay with the love of their life, they have no say, no opinions or options on rejecting this love, its just there. I hate those types of leads, it sends such a bad message to young girls, not only do you have to commit yourself to your soulmate at 16, but it should be passionate, all consuming love, a pull you can’t resist, and shouldn’t resist. No no no. at 16 you should be having fun filled, light relationships, have sex if you must, but don’t think it means you’ll be together forever, and don’t think that you SHOULD be together forever, just because your in love at this moment in time. Things change, people change, there is, in the real world, no such thing as unbreakable bonds and destiny - and if there is, I doubt it’ll hit at 16 for everyone. Anyway, thats why I love this book, Clara is drawn to Christian, she is probably destined to be with him, surely thats what her purpose is, to bond with him. But Clara has a choice, she makes a choice that is unexpected and brilliant, she is also aware that she’s young and that things change, but the best bit about this book is that she is given a choice.



    The story is unusual, and the angels are well written, they are not above us, or better than us, Clara is a normal girl and wants to be seen as such, the angel is a part of her, but not all of her. There are obviously secrets and twists to come in the latter books, Clara’s mothers purpose is still unknown, but must be linked and her brother is up to something. But the magic of this book is in the relationships, Wendy and Angela (who I don’t trust btw) as well as Clara’s family who seem so perfect but there is trouble brewing.

    Clara Gardner has recently learned that she's part angel. Having angel blood run through her veins not only makes her smarter, stronger, and faster than humans (a word, she realises, that no longer applies to her), but it means she has a purpose, something she was put on this earth to do. Figuring out what that is, though, isn't easy. Her visions of a raging forest fire and an alluring stranger lead her to a new school in a new town.

Laura's greatest hits:
  • Ashes: Ashes Trilogy, Book 1

    "Review: "Ashes" by Ilsa J Bick"

    Overall

    When I first picked up this book I did so because I'd seen a few good reviews of it around and about and I was enjoying the fab little trend of dystopian fiction that is still running its course in YA at the moment. However, my hopes weren't huge because I'm one of those despicable human beings who judges books by their covers. This cover was just a bit...is “80s” the right term?...for me.

    Well give me a sturdy slap on the wrist, I must learn to obey old clichés as this was a book that I should not have judged by its cover. And I should not have expected it to fit into the sometimes (though not always) sanguine niche that YA can be. Don't bite, I said it can be!

    For me, Ashes was a book that provided plenty of the darkness and grit that its title suggested. When an EMP causes all electronics to faulter and also interferes with the teeny tiny electrical pulses in the brains of humans, a whole heap of...poop...hits the fan! Only the very young and very old survive intact...save for a few exceptions such as Alex, the protagonist. Others survive, but as maddened inhumane creatures, similar to the "sickos" in Charlie Higson's The Enemy series, or the raging "infected" in 28 Days Later.

    The idea of the masses succumbing to a force that leaves them insane and blood thirsty is not new. The dystopian premise of technology falling down around our ears is not new either. So what about this book made me love it as much as I did? It was a combination of things really. I loved Alex as the protagonist. She goes to the mountains to bury her past and to admit that, due to a brain tumor, she has no future. Instead it is her tumor and the treatments she's had for it that saves her from the EMP and allows her to begin her story. These are things you find out in the first pages so I don't think I'm spoiling anything for you.

    I'm thoroughly looking forward to the sequel to this (already on my Goodreads Wishlist) and finding out how Bick tortures her protagonist further.

  • A Monster Calls

    "Beautiful, touching and poignant."

    Overall

    This was a really touching story. Connor was a great lad and his situation was heartbreaking. His mother, who battles cancer throughout the narrative, was a brave and touching character. Connor's grandmother seemed cold and cruel at times, but was simply a woman trying to remain strong in the face of the inevitability that she would soon have to bury her daughter. Ness subverts expectations with this narrative. He highlights the often sad conclusions of so many real-life narratives, a theme that is all the more poignant given Siobhan Dowd's own untimely death due to breast cancer.

    The eponymous Monster of the book was also a subversion of common conceptions. He wasn't scary in a conventional way. Even Connor wasn't scared of him at first. He didn't eat babies or terrorise villagers. He was scary because he made Connor face up to the unfairness of reality and made him see how frightening the truth can be. Sometimes the scariest thing about tragedy is how happy it can make us when it's over...

    I enjoyed the tales told by the Monster as I've always enjoyed the sometimes dark-morality of fairy tales. Ness' monster captured this tone and atmosphere superbly. Yesterday I mentioned Stephen King's knack for capturing the perfect tone for dark bedtime stories and I have to repeat this praise for Ness today!

    Overall, this was a moving story. It is impressive that such a short tale can have such depth and beauty, and it is also impossible to forget the circumstances that saw it being written. However, great stories live for a long time. It is a touching tribute to the imagination of a strong writer that this tale was given life by the incredible Patrick Ness. His skills breathed life into a tale that might have otherwise been left to dust.

  • Draw the Dark

    "Review: "Draw The Dark" by Ilsa J Bick"

    Overall

    I loved Christian Cage, the first-person protagonist of Draw The Dark. And I adored the narration by Joshua Swanson. Seriously... that guy's got a voice that makes you feel all tingly and warm. I don;t often choose books based upon narrators, but I'll be keeping my eyes open for more books read by him. But anyway, back to the protagonist! The first person narrative really allows the audience to get inside Christian's head. He sees his flaws and puts them under the microscope while Bick's writing allows us to see how many of his flaws are forgiveable sins. That takes some seriously good writing.
    The semi-love-interest of the book was the only aspect of the book which irritated me. I couldn't warm to her as she seemed to lack empathy for Christian's plight. She was shallow and irritating. But then... she was a seventeen year old girl. I'm not saying all seventeen year old girls are shallow and irritating. What I'm trying to say is that she wasn't this perfect, smart, beautiful-without-knowing-it, Bella Swan type! She was kind of annoying at times, but she really did seem to want to do the best by Christian.
    The premise of the book was one which I didn't think I'd be able to engage with. I'm not really that "in to" the cold case sort of mystery explored in the novel. I am a big fan of the "otherworld" idea. Again, Bick's writing drew me in (...he he he..."drew"...). I was fascinated by Christian's narrative and was honestly gripped by the story.
    Some of the psychology discussed in the book made me wonder about Ashes. There's a passage where brainwaves and sleep are discussed and I wondered as I was listening if I might have been listening to the light-bulb moment for that book's creation. I like that sort of inter-connectivity of books, (like the intertextuality of King's work. See, another similarity).
    Overall, I loved this book. I'm going to hold back half a star because I can't see any mention of a sequel anywhere and I bloody well want one!

  • A Need So Beautiful

    "Angelic Writing"

    Overall

    I was bored to death of angels. So much so that I've been deliberately avoiding any titles pertaining to them. However, I was drawn to A Need So Beautiful despite the blurb I'm glad that I was! I really enjoyed this audiobook.
    Charlotte was a great character who I both loved and hated at times. I loved her strength and her commitment to her friends. I loved how hard she fought against a fate that was beyond her control. I loved her humour and her narrative voice.
    I disliked the fact that she never just confided in her (rather drool-worthy) boyfriend, Harlin. You know when you watch a horror movie and the main character keeps making daft decisions and you sit on the edge of the couch, yelling, "Just go to the bloody police!"? This book was like that, except I was muttering "Just TELL him!" instead.
    Now. Let us take a moment to consider Harlin properly: Cover him in chocolate sauce and let's not worry about using a spoon. That is all.
    Charlotte's best friend, Sarah, was another matter. She played the role of the spoilt-little-rich-girl who kept trying to make daddy love her by acting like a complete and utter bint. I admired the fact that Charlotte stood by her best friend, despite her many, many flaws, but I got really annoyed that she put up with so much selfish crap from her. [Teeny Spoiler: At one point, Charlotte gets hit by a car and takes a deserved day of school. Sarah is annoyed at her for not being there for her as she's paying the price for giving a school loud-mouth oral! Sarah makes a lot of stupid boy-shaped mistakes that I simply could not respect or sympathise with.]
    This book is a bit of a heartbreaker; I actually cried at the end! You will follow the story wishing and hoping and praying that Charlotte's inevitable fate is somehow not as inevitable as it seems.

  • "A Fantastic YA Series!"

    3 of 3 helpful votes

    This the third book in the Partials Sequence. I absolutely LOVED it!

    I downloaded this book in audio format, as I wanted to read it but because it hadn't been released in Kindle format in the UK yet, I was dying to know what happened next! Getting this book in audio allowed me to be able to listen to it whilst doing household chores, or focus on the story from the comfort of a chair or my bed. The narrator, Julia Whelan, did another fantastic job in bringing the characters to life by giving them their own accent and voice. Her narration was well paced and even, and was concise and exciting.

    Kira Walker is a fantastic character. She may be a Partial, but she has more compassion than some humans. I really liked her a lot. She is brave, determined and, even though she is a medic, can kick ass when she needs to.

    Samm is another fantastic character. He is a Partial too, but a soldier with a dream - to find how to stop the expiration of the Partials. I liked him a lot too. He is a soldier used to following orders, but his love for Kira and his desire to live sees him following his heart.

    The story continues from the end of the second book. War is inevitable, but Kira, Samm and Marcus are determined to try to stop it if they can. As this story is told through various points of view, but mostly through Kira's Samm's and Marcus's eyes, I felt like I was actually watching a movie; the descriptions of the people and the environs were extremely vivid. There are several twists and turns in this tale that surprised me. None more so than the identity of the "Blood Man". What made him the way he was, was more shocking to me than the actual brutality of his actions (which were decidedly gross). There are some scenes that are extremely violent and disturbing, but there are also some scenes that are touching and made me cry. It was nice to meet up with most of Kira's friends, Nandita Merchant, Isolde Romer, Ariel McAdams, Xochi Kessler, and Yoon Ji-Bak again. However, things are not what they seem and new alliances are formed and enemies made. Heron is an enigma, and I wasn't sure what team she was on, but her actions near the end of the story made her a hero in my book. I was a little disappointed at how the story concluded, as I felt there were a few questions of my own that remained unanswered. However, I thoroughly enjoyed the exciting roller coaster ride of action and romance that took me on an amazing journey through a post-apocalyptic world. I would love to see this trilogy made into a movie, as I think it would definitely give The Hunger Games and Divergent a run for their money.

    Dan Wells has written a fast paced, action packed post-apocalyptic YA novel that kept me riveted from the first page. I love his writing style, which kept me highly entertained, and the story flowed wonderfully. I have added this author to my Favourite Author's list, and will be looking out for more of his work in the future.

    I highly recommend this book (and series) if you love books like The Hunger Games and Divergent, or if you love to read YA, Science Fiction, Dystopian or Post-Apocalyptic genres. - Lynn Worton

    As the clock ticks closer and closer to the final Partial expiration date, humans and Partials stand on the brink of war. Caught in the middle, thousands of miles apart, are Samm and Kira: Samm, who is trapped on the far side of the continent beyond the vast toxic wasteland of the American Midwest; and Kira, now in the hands of Dr. Morgan, who is hell-bent on saving what's left of the Partials, even if she has to destroy Kira to do it.
