Book: Twilight (Twilight Series Book 1) Review

“Vanilla vampires and the wimpiest heroine of all time?”

Author: Stephenie Meyer

Genre: Romance, Vampire, Paranormal, Fantasy, Adventure, Age: YA+

Released: 30th October 2008 (latest UK version)

Okay I know that everyone and their mum has heard of Twilight before. It’s become such a big phenomenon, and thrust it’s young actors onto a global scale. However, the way I remember Twilight is as a young girl, in High School, reading the books, admiring the characters and marveling at the unique perspective that had given to vampires.

“Mockingbird + Jabberjay = Mockingjay!”

Author: Suzanne Collins

Genre: Dystopia, Action, Age: YA+

I’ve been reading this series quickly, however, I feel like they are just easy books to read.

Obviously, it’s main target audience is teenagers, that’s probably why there are no “big words”. Mockingjay continues on from the first  and second book.

Book: Catching Fire (The Hunger Games Trilogy Book 2) Review

“It’s almost a crime how easy these books are!”

Author: Suzanne Collins

Genre: Dystopia, Action, Age: YA+

Released: 1st December 2011 (UK version)

Once again, I have managed to read this book in just a couple of days.

You should know that this is the second book of The Hunger Games and this review may contain spoilers, although I do my very best to avoid details.

You may remember from my previous review that the first Hunger Games book doesn’t end correctly, and instead is so inconclusive that you almost HAVE TO buy the second book. Well, I did, and the story really does continue on from the exact spot that the first book left off.
