BLURB:

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. Continue reading

BLURB:

Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.

Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he’s going to put a stop to that.

What Will doesn’t know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they’re going to change the other for all time. Continue reading

Video Review: The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick

Dear readers,

This is a very special book to me. I read it a year ago, after having watched the youtube videos, and it completely stole my heart. Therefore, I decided to present it to you orally as well. Hopefully, you will be charmed by it and decide to give it a try. My editor program gave me some trouble, which is why this video is shorter than my usual ones. Thanks for watching! You can also read my written review of this book here.

Jane Austen meets X-­Men in this gripping and adventure-­filled paranormal romance set in Victorian London.
