I thought it was a lovely and romantic contemporary, and my favourite part was the heroine herself, who was extremely shy. I really enjoyed reading about her struggles in talking and relating to other people, and the focus of the book was always on her and her growth as a person.
The romance is a huge element, but I always felt the coming of age of the heroine took precedence, and I liked that very much (even though I am a super massive fan of romantic books!) I also thought the romance in this was great. Not showy or shallow, it was very very slow, and this first experience reading Morgan Matson was definitely positive. I am really looking forward to reading more of her books!
The Sacrifice Box - Martin Stewart
Ooooohhhhhhh The Sacrifice box! I freaking adored this!
It was charming, amusing, deliciously dark and squeamish, filled with wonderful horror and creepy atmosphere, and was written beautifully!
I LOVED it!!!!!
I really really did.
Clockwork Prince - Cassandra Clare
So I read the first book in this series (Clockwork Angel) back at the beginning of the year, and while I did quite like it, I didn’t get as hooked as I did when reading Clare’s other novel, Lady Midnight (which I actually loved).
This sequel though, Clockwork Prince, I did really enjoy.
The Last Days of Us - Beck Nicholas
Aaah, this is by an Adelaide author, who I have seen speaking in person at book club events.
So I was really looking forward to reading this.
