Frenchman’s Creek by Daphne Du Maurier
Full Review: Frenchman’s Creek.
I gave this book 5/5. Another Du Maurier masterpiece. Pirates, Cornwall, and adventure. Brilliantly written characters and narrative that keeps you enthralled. A healthy dose of danger and macabre. Highly recommended.
Old Man’s War by John Scalzi
Full Review: Old Man’s War.
I gave this book 3.5/5. Interesting concept of space colonisation, elderly recruits given young bodies to fight in the army, and sci-fi by the bucket load. I found the age aspect refreshing; old minds in young bodies.
Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson
Full Review: The Hero fo Ages.
I gave this book 5/5. Perfect way to conclude the trilogy. Nothing I say will do this series justice. Epic world building, character development, and narrative progression. A series not to be missed.
Suffragette: The Diary of Dottie Baxter by Carol Drinkwater
Full Review: Suffragette: The Diary of Dollie Baxter.
I gave this book 3/5. I’m not usually one for reading books with a diary excerpt layout as I find them jarring. That being said, this book has long excerpt so its not too choppy. A great way to educate young adults in the Suffragette movement.
True Calling by Siobhan Davis
Full Review: True Calling
I gave this book 4/5. A new planet to sustain human life, a bizarre, televised, ‘pairing system’ to ensure reproduction, and an enormous dose of deception. The two POVs gave the narrative another dimension, and the love triangle was fun to read. One for Hunger Games and Divergent fans.
