    Review: The Sons of Scarlatti by John McNally

    AMOEE

    Summary:

    Infinity Drake – aka Finn (at least his mum stopped him being christened e=mc2) – is looking forward to a week away with his mad scientist uncle when they are summoned to a crisis meeting. A lethal bio-weapon has been released by a pitiless villain, with incalculable consequences for mankind…UNLESS Al can shrink a military team to hunt down the beast. No one reckons on Finn getting dragged along – but then disaster strikes. Shrunk to 9mm tall, Finn has to jump in a tiny apache helicopter with two soldiers and a crack female pilot in a race to avert disaster and destroy the Scarlatti – the uber-wasp killing machine that’s out there, very angry, and many times their size…(And if you think that’s trouble, just wait till Grandma finds out.)

    Review: Starstruck by Cyn Balog

    41-meACIAOL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

    Summary:

    Life isn’t easy for Gwendolyn “Dough” Reilly – her family is struggling with its small New Jersey bakery in a town full of millionaires, and people at her school don’t seem to know she exists. When her long-distance boyfriend, Wish, moves back home after three years away, she’s nervous – she’s gained a lot of weight since they last saw each other, while Wish has apparently morphed into a blond god. Convinced that Wish will dump her the minute he lays eyes on her, Dough puts off their reunion as long as she possibly can.

    But something amazing happens when they finally meet: Wish looks at Dough as if she’s just as gorgeous as he is. He’s acting a little weird, though; he’s obsessed with the sun and freaked outby the rain. The creepy new guy working with Dough at the bakery tells her that Wish’s tiny star tattoo marks him as a member of the Luminati, an ancient cult of astrologers who can manipulate the stars to improve their lives. Dough isn’t sure what to believe.

    Are Dough and Wish meant to be together – or are they star-crossed?

    April TBR :)

    Hello everyone 🙂 Welcome to my April TBR. Here are the books I plan to read this month:

    • The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. I have friends who want me to read this.
    • The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells. This was my TBR jar pick for the month.
    • Raven’s Gate by Anthony Horowitz. My friend lent this to me ages ago and I still haven’t read it so I am going to this month.
    • All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. Heard nothing but good about this so I’m really excited to read it 🙂
    • The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare. I’ve actually read I think six of them, I just really want to read the rest.
    • The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton. I am so excited to read this.
    • Bringing Up Mike by Mark Duncan. I got this book for review last year and I keep putting it off because the cover is really ugly… I know that’s not a great reason… But I plan to finally read it this month.

    These are just books I want to read this month, I don’t actually think I’ll read them all because I have a lot of work to do for college still, although I do have a two week holiday this month so you never know.

  • Wrap Up

    March Wrap Up

    Hello friends 🙂 Welcome to my March Wrap Up. I read 15 books in March, and I have no idea how I did that, because I had so much work to do for college, but I managed it, and I am impressed with myself. Especially considering the fact that I didn’t read anything for an entire week because I wasn’t feeling the book I was on at the time. Anyway, lets get started:

    March Book Haul :)

    Hey guys 🙂 So its time for another book haul. Once again I bought way more books than I wanted to… I really need to stop. This isn’t helping my TBR. Or my bank account. The upside is I got most of them from Oxfam, so they didn’t cost too much. Anyway, here are the books I got this month:
