REVIEW: The Martian by Andy Weir

The Martian - Andy Weir

I wanted to love The Martian by Andy Weir. I really did. I was given an eARC last year, and after reading a few chapters I put it down. I couldn’t get on with the narration.

I did manage to finish The Martian but I can’t say I loved it, or even…

The Time Roads by Beth Bernobich

In a novel that takes science and mathematics and turns them into time travel, The Time Roads by Beth Bernobich plays with past and future to transform the present. The novel begins with the ascendance of Áire Devereaux to the throne of Éire, one of the most powerful empires in the world.

A Vault of Sins by Sarah Harian

*Warning: Contains spoilers for book one* Having thoroughly enjoyed the first book in the Chaos Theory series, I couldn’t wait to jump straight back in with A Vault of Sins by Sarah Harian.

After the Room malfunctioned, the impending court case pits the survivors against the creators, as the Compass Room engineers try to prove that the Room was working…

REVIEW: Partials by Dan Wells


Partials by Dan Wells (Partials Sequence #1) HarperCollins (Mar 2012) Paperback, 468 pages Dystopian YA I have seen many great reviews regarding Partials which piqued my interest, so when I received a book voucher for Christmas I ran out and bought it.

Partials are half-human cyborgs and were built to fight in wars and do the dirty work humans no longer wanted to…
