Interview | Isaac Marion




Hey, everyone!
Welcome to another blog post.
This one is very special, as I have an interview to share with you from the brilliant Isaac Marion.

But first, let's learn more about Isaac and his latest book release 'The Living'








The New York Times bestselling Warm Bodies Series has 
captivated readers in twenty-five languages, inspiring a major film and transcending the zombie 
genre to become something “poetic” (Library 
Journal) “highly original” (Seattle Times) and “ultimately 
moving” (Time Out London). Now the story of a dead man’s search 
for life reaches its conclusion on a scale both epic 
and intimate.

Before he was a flesh-eating corpse, R was something worse. He remembers it all now, a 
life of greed and apathy more destructive than any 
virus, and he sees only one path to redemption: he must 
fight the forces he helped create. But what can R, Julie, and their tiny gang of fugitives do against the 
creeping might of the Axiom Group, the bizarre undead corporation that’s 
devouring what’s left of America?

It’s time for a road trip.

No more flyover country. This time they’ll face the madness on the ground, racing their RV 
across the wastelands as tensions rise and bonds unravel—because R isn’t the only one hiding painful secrets. Everyone is on their own desperate 
search: for a kidnapped daughter, a suicidal mother, and an abused little boy with a gift that could save humanity…if humanity can convince him it’s worth saving.

All roads lead home, to a final confrontation with the plague and its shareholders. But this is a monster that guns can’t kill. A battle only one weapon can win…

Blog Tour | Rejoice by Steven Erikson



Hello and welcome to another blog tour!
Today I am going to be talking about Rejoice, Steven Erikson and I even have a list of Steven's favourite books!
Stay tuned, and don't forget to add the book to your TBR list!









Rejoice, A Knife to the Heart tells the story of the Intervention, which begins when Samantha August, science fiction writer, disappears into a beam of light, apparently from a UFO, while walking along a busy street in Victoria, Canada. While footage of the incident – captured on smartphones – goes viral, Samantha wakes up in a small room, where she is greeted by the voice of Adam, who explains that they are in orbit and he is AI communicant of the Intervention Delegation, a triumvirate of alien civilisations seeking to ensure the continuing evolution of Earth as a viable biome. Thus begins an astonishing, provocative, beautifully written and startlingly visionary novel of First Contact.

Book Review | Listen to Your Heart by Kasie West




Title: Listen to Your Heart
Author:  Kasie West
Publisher: Scholastic Point
Rating: 5 Kitkats





Talking to other people isn't Kate Bailey's favorite activity. She'd much rather be out on the lake, soaking up the solitude and sunshine. So when her best friend, Alana, convinces Kate to join their high school's podcast, Kate is not expecting to be chosen as the host. Now she'll have to answer calls and give advice on the air? Impossible.

But to Kate's surprise, she turns out to be pretty good at the hosting gig. Then the podcast gets in a call from an anonymous guy, asking for advice about his unnamed crush. Kate is pretty sure that the caller is gorgeous Diego Martinez, and even surer that the girl in question is Alana. Kate is excited for her friend ... until Kate herself starts to develop feelings for Diego. Suddenly, Kate finds that while doling out wisdom to others may be easy, asking for help is tougher than it looks, and following your own advice is even harder.

Book Review | Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare






Title: Clockwork Angel
Author:  Cassandra Clare
Publisher: McElderry Books
Rating: 5 Kitkats



TMagic is dangerous—but love is more dangerous still.

When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London’s Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.

Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What’s more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa’s power for his own.

Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by—and torn between—two best friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm’s length…everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the 
world…and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.
