Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge by Paul Krueger
My full review: Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge
I gave this book 3/5. The concept was innovative and fun, but I found the world building slightly unbelievable. Some good character development, but some not so good. Quick, easy read.
Unknown by Phil Price
My full review: Unknown
I gave this book 5/5. Many POV’s woven into a master tale of vampires, other worlds, and blood harvesting. Many stories could be stand alone from throughout the eras, but the more you read, the more intricately everything is linked.
The Hawkweed Prophecy by Irina Brignull
My full review: The Hawkeeed Prophecy
I gave this book 3/5. I enjoyed the fantasy aspect of the story, and how well teen issues have been woven into a tale of witches, spells, and prophecy. Some relationships felt a little awkward, and the narrative felt rushed in places. A book that doesn’t transcend the age range, but I believe would be enjoyable to young teens.
The Story Traveller by Max Candee
My full review: The Story Traveller
I gave this book 3/5. Detailed world building and imaginative characters. A few too many info dumps for my liking, and a contradictory protagonist. A read for teens with an innovative concept.
The Dark Side by Anthony O’Neill
My full review: The Dark Side
I gave this book 4/5. Well thought out, believable dystopian future. A colonised moon loaded with criminals! Gotham City meets Las Vegas. Sci-fi noir with healthy dollops of humour and a very high death count. Thoroughly enjoyed this read.
The Girl with all the Gifts by M.R Carey
My full review:
I gave this book 5/5. Not what I expected, but in a good way. Unique take on the zombie novel with science woven in. Small group of well developed characters and multiple POVs. Could not put this book down.
Have you read any of my June reads? What did you think? Do you have any recommendations for me because I’m always looking to add to be TBR pile *cough*.
