Prentisstown isn't like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise. Just a month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd and his dog, Manchee -- whose thoughts Todd can hear too, whether he wants to or not -- stumble upon an area of complete silence. They find that in a town where privacy is impossible, something terrible has been hidden -- a secret so awful that Todd and Manchee must run for their lives.
But how do you escape when your pursuers can hear your every thought?

The Knife of Never Letting Go really does not give much away with it's synopsis does it?
From the get go, this book is fast paced with action, horror and sadness thrown at you from every angle. At first I struggled to get into the story because of the intentional use of bad grammar and misspellings. However, after I had been immersed into the story these issues were gone and I personally felt that the use of bad grammar and misspellings really added to Todd's character and the story. It really helped to portray Todd's inability to read and write properly.

However, the winner for me in this book was Todd and Manchee's relationship and how Todd changes his mind about Manchee as the story develops. Any book that has a dog yelling 'squirrel' or 'poo, Todd, poo', has me won! Oh how my simple mind is easily pleased with toilet humour ^_^

This story has so many underlying issues that are introduced and developed that it's easy to forget all about them - inequality of genders, the question of spiritualism and the choice of morals, right or wrong. I'm very interested to explore these topics within the story of Chaos Walking further and I will certainly be picking up the next book in the series, The Ask and The Answer.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone Goodreads Page

Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky. 
In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.
And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherworldly war. 
Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages - not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that colour. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out. 
When one of the strangers - beautiful, haunted Akiva - fixes his fire-coloured eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?

I picked Daughter of Smoke and Bone as my Audibles free trial audiobook because of the good reviews I had seen via goodreads as well as my thoughts on getting 'value for money' as it was approximately 12 hours long compared to the common 6-8 hours long. I have to say that with hindsight I maybe should of picked a shorter one as my first audiobook experience as the length of this did make it drag a little as I was listening to about 2.5 hours a week. However, despite that I still think that this story was incredible and the narrator made this book for me.

The story of Daughter of Smoke and Bone takes us through the streets of Prague (loved this setting as I visited there early this year so I could fully re-imagine this setting within the book) and Marrakesh. With blue-haired Karou as our main narrator within this book we experience her normal life at art school with humans and then her personal life living with the Chimaera, who's appearance is a mix of human and animals.
As we discover there is more and more about the magical world of the Chimaera and her guardian's, Bristone, magical abilities which all centres around using teeth (yuck!). As the story develops, we soon realise that not all is simple in Karou's world and that external forces are content at taking away every she holds dear.

The twists and turns within this book were incredible and were not lost through listening to the Audiobook. I personally think the narrator's talent for voicing the different characters such as Brimstone and Zuzannah really made this book for me. I do however think that the Audiobook was slightly harder to follow when aspects of the story jumped from present to past though as this was difficult to distinguish until about a minute into the change. However, this was a small issue for me as I soon realised where the story was and started to understand it again quickly.

Overall this was an enjoyable audiobook to listen to and I would certainly recommend it as well as the Audibles service. I look forward to getting stuck into the sequel, Days of Blood and Starlight, as the ending to Daughter of Smoke and Bone was such a cliffhanger.

In general, I like using Audiobooks are they are great for listening to during my long commutes home from work everyday - listening to a story through my car speaker is not only company but it also always me to read more than I would normally have time for during a work day. I certainly will be listening to more in the future ^_^.

I Heart London Goodreads Page

Home is where the heart is. Right? Angela Clark has fallen in love with America -- and it's starting to love her back. Throw one expired visa into the mix, and things quickly take a turn for the worse. She might love her life as a Brit in New York, but now she has no choice but to return to London. Not only does she leave behind her gorgeous boyfriend, Alex -- she must also face unfinished business back on home turf. There's an ex-boyfriend -- who she moved to New York to get away from. Then there's her best friend, with her perfect new baby. And there's her mum. Now, there's another wedding in the offing -- and everyone remembers how well the last one went...

The I Heart Series is officially one of my favourites and I think it always will be. With Number 5 in the series, I heart London, I wasn't sure if Lindsey Kelk would be able to beat the previous in the series (#1 New York, #2 Hollywood, #3 Paris and #4 Las Vegas) but it certainly does not disappoint and the familiarity of the London setting actually made this one of my favourites of the whole series so far!

Since Angela's spontaneous flee to New York 2 years ago, she is now settled down enjoying life with her new fiance and her new magazine job. What could go wrong? Well, as with every book within the I Heart Series, almost everything you could imagine! Cat fights, dress stealing, depressing and controlling dumped best friends, evil magazine enemies ruining the day and an ex finance showing up causing trouble. What more could you expect from an I Heart Series book?

As ever, Lindsey Kelk's writing is what makes this book and the hilarious comedic writing mixed with current newsworthy references makes this such an entertaining read. A must for any chick-lit comedy lover!

All Our Yesterdays Book Trailer | Cristin Terrill | Out August 1st

#30DayRead Completed | Final Progress Report

Hello everyone and I hope you are having a good reading week.

The #30DayRead challenge officially ended yesterday (16th July) and I'm happy to announce that I achieved my goal of reading a 100 per pages and therefore reading 3,000 pages. I actually over-achieved my goal and read 3,054 pages thanks to #BookTubeAThon - as if the 30 Day Reading Challenge wasn't enough I'm also taking part in BookTube-A-Thon ^_^ (more about that to follow).

I was glad that I set myself the realistic target of 100 pages per day as my work schedule and leisure commitments during this last month would have made it impossible to read 150 pages per day or even 30 books in 30 days. Props off to everyone who managed to do either of those goals - that's a massive achievement and you should be very proud of yourselves.

As this was my first readathon challenge that I had participated in, I was taken aback by how much each booktuber, book blogger and reading enthusiast supported everyone else participating in the challenge and I am glad to say that I have had so many great conversations about the #30DayRead with others and found so many more fantastic booktubers/book bloggers/tweeters along the way. ^_^ As well as this social and community aspect of the challenge, I've also thoroughly enjoyed reading much more than I normally would and even think I've increased my reading speed. The books that I read during the challenge were also incredible and as many were part of a series, I can't wait to get started on the next one to see what's going to develop within these series.

Here's a breakdown of all the books I read during the challenge and if you'd like to read my reviews just click the image.

339 pages

Viral Nation - Shaunta Grimes | Book Review

Viral Nation (#1 Viral Nation)

Viral Nation Goodreads Page

After a virus claimed nearly the entire global population, the world changed. The United States splintered into fifty walled cities where the surviving citizens clustered to start over. The Company, which ended the plague by bringing a life-saving vaccine back from the future, controls everything. They ration the scant food and supplied through a lottery system, mandate daily doses of virus suppressant, and even monitor future timelines to stop crimes before they can be committed. 
Brilliant but autistic, sixteen-year-old Clover Donovan has always dreamed of studying at the Waverly-Stead Academy. Her brother and caretaker, West, has done everything in his power to make her dream a reality. But Clover's refusal to part with her beloved service dog denies her entry into the school. Instead, she is drafted into the Time Mariners, a team of Company operatives who travel through time to gather news about the future. 
When one of Clover's missions reveals that West's life is in danger, the Donovans are shattered. To change West's fate, they'll have to take on the mysterious Company. But as its secrets are revealed, they realize that the Company's rule may not be as benevolent as it seems. In saving her brother, Clover will face a more powerful force than she ever imagined and will team up with a band of fellow misfits and outsiders to incite a revolution that will change their destinies forever. 
Read the Viral Nation excerpt:

This book was an incredible read from start to finish - I was truly warped into this world and cheering on the good guys to win.

This book throws you straight into its bleak world within the prologue as we experience Clover and West's mothers death and a doctor with the virus suppressant knocking on the door just a moment too late. From then on in, we are constantly told of West's experiences of growing up and looking after his autistic sister, Clover, whilst their father is an executioner within the largest city left within America, Reno. As West and Clover have been on their own since their mothers death, they have understandably formed a significant bound between the two of them and this was portrayed extremely well within the book.

As we journey through the story through the eyes of Clover for the most part, I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about her autism and her constant struggle to remain calm and control her behaviour. I felt that Clover's autism made her character more interesting and her behaviour in certain situations added to the chaos of the post-apocalyptic world and the dystopian theme. I thoroughly enjoyed Mango's character as well, Clover's dog,  as he thoroughly certainly understands Clover and helps her to control her behaviour and thoughts. Clover's and Mango's relationship is a well crafted human and pet relationship which adds to the story rather than just being part of it - I love the cover with depicts the pair too.

As the story develops more and more characters are added and love interests emerge. I'm not keen on the romance within this book as the two relationships are a bit rushed and they seem to appear out of nowhere and then characters are all of a sudden 'I can't live my life without you now'. Luckily this didn't take away from the story and I just saw them as 'good friends' as nothing really happens between anyone anyway. I imagine more of these 'love interests' will be made within the books to follow as I can already imagine how this story may develop - I'm keeping my fingers crossed for lots of action between the good guys and the bad guys ^_^

The best aspect of this book for me personally was the world building and as a sucker for all things dystopian this book did not disappoint. I also loved the elements to this story: deadly disease spreads across America (no mention of rest of world - what happened to us Brits?); everyone must have a daily suppressant to keep the virus at bay; time travel- the suppressant was found within the future and brought back to save humanity; the present keep use information in the future to stop all crime before it happens; and lastly a revolution is beginning and those who aren't necessarily suspected are the one's leading the revolt.

Overall Viral Nation was a incredible dystopian novel and one I was very glad to have read. I am extremely excited to see what develops within the second book. I just need to know now how long it's going to be until I can get my hands on it ^_^

Faelorehn (#1 The Otherworld Trilogy) | Book Review

This review contains no spoilers and no reference to events or character information that may ruin your reading pleasure.

Jenna Elizabeth Johnson

Book 1 - The Otherworld Trilogy

I never heard him come after me and even as I climbed the slope and stumbled onto our shaded back lawn, I didn’t look back. It was like the day the gnomes chased me all over again, but this time I was not escaping some horrible little creatures, I was fleeing from an incredibly good-looking guy who could very well understand me completely. I was either saving myself from that serial killer I always imagined lived down in the swamp, or I had finally gone over the deep end...
Meghan Elam has been strange her entire life: her eyes have this odd habit of changing color and she sees and hears things no one else does. When the visions and voices in her head start to get worse, she is convinced that her parents will want to drag her off to another psychiatrist. That is, until the mysterious Cade MacRoich shows up out of nowhere with an explanation of his own.
Cade brings her news of another realm where goblins and gnomes are the norm, a place where whispering spirits exist in the very earth, and a world where Meghan just might find the answers she has always sought.

Recommended for those who enjoy:
Supernatural revelations, Celtic myths and legends, discovering your true identity, beating the bullies,
friendships formed, teen romance blossoming.

This book was a particularly slow builder and the same aspects of the story kept being played out without much development each time. Despite this lack of development, I did find the book easy to read as it was simply written and therefore quick to read each page. I would say that this book is aimed at the 'Middle Grade' market though as I felt the content was very tame and the simple English used made it very easy to read.

I didn't warm to many of the characters as they were all too 'angsty' for me and the aspects of the characters which seemed to tie into the plot never actually did tie into the plot as the main character researched everything herself and then got her 'new friends' to help fill the blanks. This made the friends characters void to me and I didn't quite understand their responsibility to the story. I did however like the character, Aiden, who is Meghan's younger. He suffers from a learning difficulty and, considering this book is aimed at younger readers, I like that it wasn't afraid to include this within his character. I do feel that more could have been developed with the relationship between Meghan and Aiden though.

This book's strengths were its strong links to Celtic myths and legends and that its firstly introduced the to the reader and then developed to fit the story. This aspect was my favourite as I love anything supernatural history (e.g. Merlin) and this is the main reason this book gets it 3 star rating. The author has clearly carried out in-depth research in Celtic myths and legends and this comes through into the story.

The last quarter of this book, when the action actually starts and we discover the answers to all of Meghan's questions, seemed rushed to me and when some of Meghan's questions can't be answers I feel this is a disappointing method of holding back information in order to read the next book. I can't fault this in itself, however when a character just plainly states "I can't tell you that right now", it was all rather annoying!

I am unlikely to continue this series as although I did enjoy this book, I am not eager to discover more of the story. I do however believe this would be an excellent book for children/early teens that not avid readers.

Over to you:
Have you read Faelorehn, what did you think of it?

Stitch | Book Review

Samantha Durante

Book 1 - The Stitch Trilogy

Her heart races, her muscles coil, and every impulse in Alessa's body screams at her to run... but yet she's powerless to move.

Still struggling to find her footing after the sudden death of her parents, the last thing college freshman Alessa has the strength to deal with is the inexplicable visceral pull drawing her to a handsome ghostly presence. In between grappling with exams and sorority soirees - and disturbing recurring dreams of being captive in a futuristic prison hell - Alessa is determined to unravel the mystery of the apparition who leaves her breathless. But the terrifying secret she uncovers will find her groping desperately through her nightmares for answers.

Because what Alessa hasn't figured out yet is that she's not really a student, the object of her obsession is no ghost, and her sneaking suspicions that something sinister is lurking behind the walls of her university's idyllic campus are only just scratching the surface...

The opening installment in a twist-laden trilogy, Stitch spans the genres of paranormal romance and dystopian sci-fi to explore the challenges of a society in transition, where morality, vision, and pragmatism collide leaving the average citizen to suffer the results.

Recommended for those who enjoy:
dystopias, The Hunger Games, Divergent Trilogy, Dollhouse, overcoming unequality, friendships, strong revelations, love, romance, teen romance, challenging the law

The 5th Wave | Book Review

This review contains no spoilers and no reference to events or character information that may ruin your reading pleasure.

The 5th Wave
Rick Yancey

Book 1 - The 5th Wave Trilogy

The Passage meets Ender's Game in an epic new series from award-winning author Rick Yancey.

After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it's the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth's last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie's only hope for rescuing her brother - or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. TO give up or to get up.

Recommended for those who enjoy:
end of the world concepts, fighting for your life situations, alien takeovers, blossoming love, fighting chaos, living in a 'lawless' world,

Cold Tea and Crumbs rating:  ★★★

My thoughts:
This book has been wildly adored across YouTube, Twitter, Goodreads, Tumblr and blogs so it was only right that I too picked it up to see what all the fuss was. Although it was a good read, I was slightly disappointed and didn't quite understand everyone's adoration of this story.

The story starts with narration from Cassie, a 17 year old 'hard-as-nails' teenager who is constantly questioning whether she's the final survivor of the alien attack. I thoroughly enjoyed this first portion as it was quick, witty and gritty, just how I like my sci-fi ^_^. The snappiness of this initial start was fantastic and although we were jumping in and out of the present and past whilst discovering Cassie's experiences since 'The Arrival' I loved that I was reading it just how someone would probably recall it all.

The story then continues to twist and turn with different characters narrating different portions of the story, I also liked this development within the story however, certain chapters were slow from other characters perspectives which faulted the story and made it feel a little clunky. I also didn't really enjoy the 'romance' scenes in this book and although it was monumental to the story, and the probable development throughout the series, it was all a bit 'blah'. I didn't really warm to the Evan Walker and in my opinion, once he was introduced, Cassie just lost all her 'grit' and 'chaos' which was what I loved about her.

Overall this story was good, it kept me quickly turning pages and certain twists during the story made my jaw drop to the ground. The ending was well rounded but with a 'half-final' ending I've not been left pacing the floor in anticipation for the next book. However as I'm curious to know what will happen next, I will pick up the second book.

Cassandra Clare

Book 2 - The Mortal Instruments Series

Clary Fray just wishes that her life would go back to normal. But what's normal when you're a demon-slaying Shadowhunter, your mother is in a magically induced coma, and you can suddenly see Downworlders like werewolves, vampires, and faeries? If Clary left the world of the Shadowhunters behind, it would mean more time with her best friend, Simon, who's becoming more than a friend. But the Shadowhunting world isn't ready to let her go - especially her handsome, infuriating, newfound brother, Jace. And Clary's only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil - and also her father.

To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children. Is Valentine behind the killings - and if he is, what is he trying to do? When the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Soul-Sword, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor arrives to investigate and zooms right on Jace. How can Clary stop Valentine if Jace is willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father?

In this breathtaking sequel to City of Bones, Cassandra Clare lures her readers back into the dark grip of New York City's Downworld, where love is never safe and power becomes the deadliest temptation.

Wither by Lauren Destefano | Book Review

This review contains no spoilers and no reference to events or character information that may ruin your reading pleasure.

Lauren Destefano

Book 1 - The Chemical Garden Trilogy

By age sixteen, Rhine Ellery has four years left to live. She can thank modern science for this genetic time bomb. A botched effort to create a perfect race has left all males with a lifespan of 25 years, and females with a lifespan of 20 years. Geneticists are seeking a miracle antidote to restore the human race, desperate orphans crowd the population, crime and poverty have skyrocketed, and young girls are being kidnapped and sold as polygamous brides to bear more children.

When Rhine is kidnapped and sold as a bride, she vows to do all she can to escape. Her husband, Linden, is hopelessly in love with her, and Rhine can't bring herself to hate him as much as she'd like to. He opens her to a magical world of wealth and illusion she never thought existed, and it almost makes it possible to ignore the clock ticking away her short life. But Rhine quickly learns that not everything in her new husband's strange world is what it seems. Her father-in-law, an eccentric doctor bent on finding the antidote, is hoarding corpses in the basement. Her fellow sister wives are to be trusted one day and feared the next, Rhine is desperate to communicate to her twin brother that she is safe and alive. Will Rhine be able to escape -- before her time runs out?

Recommended for those who enjoy:
dystopians, end of the world concepts, love, romance, blossoming love, challenging the law, fighting chaos, living in a 'lawless' world,

Cold Tea and Crumbs rating:  ★★★

My thoughts:
The world as we know it is no more, the US is all that is left after World War 3 but cancer and similar diseases now no longer threaten the human race. However in return, the subsequent generations only live until 25 (males) and 20 (females). No-one know why!

This story is incredible, the dystopian world is terrifyingly possible and the characters loveable, hateful and enjoyably annoying.

This book focuses on Rhine and her life as a sister wife within a wealthy mansion, a complete opposite to her previous life in Manhattan. Even though most of this story takes place within the same four walls, the story is gripping from start to finish. The clear focus for the series though, which I'm sure will be explored more as the series progresses, is the fight to find an anitdote for these early deaths.

Overall, a must for anyone looking for a more sinister version of 'The Selection Series'

Halfway Update | 30 Day Reading Challenge | #30DayRead

Halfway Update
Day 15

Hi everyone. I hope you are all well.

Just a little update from me today about my #30DayRead Reading Challenge Progress. As you may (or may not) remember when I posted my #30DayRead List post I challenged myself to read 100 pages per day. Not only have I been working my way rather successfully through my average of 100 pages each day - believe me some days I fail but I luckily make the pages up on the weekend - but I've also found so many more booktubers through doing this challenge and had some good old chinwags too ^_^

If you want to catch up with my weekly updates, you'll find them via the videos below.

My progress looks like this so far:
15 Days in my total number of pages = 1463/3000. Only 47 pages behind my target.

Finished books:
The Selection = 339 pages
City of Ashes = 453 pages (Book review coming soon)
Stitch = 314 pages (Book review coming soon)

Books currently reading:
Wither = 225 pages so far
Daughter of Smoke and Bone Audiobook = 120 pages so far

I've read so many incredible books during this challenge and it's spurred be on through a mini reading slump as well as some stressful days at work. I can't wait to continue to progress towards my goal for #30DayRead and because I've enjoyed this challenge so much I'm also participating in BookTube-A-Thon which is a week long reading challenge started on YouTube.

Hope everyone else who has been participating in #30DayRead is also doing well and staying on target. Feel free to leave any comments below about your progress. I always love to hear how other people are doing ^_^
