[Picking Stitches – Book Review] Morning Star by Pierce Brown

A few months ago I wrote about setting myself a Summer Reading List Challenge, with 10 books to read within three months. Though I (almost – 9/10) finished this challenge, I fell woefully behind in reviewing them, at least I have plenty of topics to blog on for a while now!

Hopefully now I’m not specifically trying to read so much, I’ll be able to get these reviews down in – digital – ink.

I’ve previously reviewed Red Rising and Golden Son and loved them both, so how did I feel about the conclusion to Darrow’s story? Spoilers inside!

I’ve been so busy I’m behind in my reading challenge, and it was difficult to…… Continue reading [Picking Stitches – Book Review] Golden Son by Pierce Brown

Anyway, onto the details; Spoiler Alert as always, as I’ve just given up trying to review books without giving anything away! Big spoiler here, though…… Continue reading [Picking Stitches – Book Review] Red Rising by Pierce Brown

[Picking Stitches – Book Review] You, by Caroline Kepnes

This book came to me via Christa over at A Voluptuous Mind. She raved about it as her Book of 2015, and well, then I just had to read it didn’t I? Spoiler Alert!  I am no good at non-detailed reviews. Also language. Do I spoil alert for an instance of the C word?  Blurb / Summary…… Continue reading [Picking Stitches – Book Review] You, by Caroline Kepnes

[Picking Stitches – Book Review] Touch, by Claire North

After I read and reviewed Claire North’s The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August I was excited to delve into some of her other works. In the back of Harry August was a teaser first chapter of Touch, which of course, I read and then promptly ordered the whole book into my local library, because I was very interested. North, after…… Continue reading [Picking Stitches – Book Review] Touch, by Claire North
