Bookclub September 2012

Well hello again! :0) Last night we had our fourth #YABluewater meeting. We discussed a gorgeous book called A Monster Calls, by Patrick Ness. We gave it 4.5 out of 5 stars, so I think it's safe to say that we LOVED it!!

I would like to start off by saying a huge thank you to those of you who came last night, and sorry for not having any cake! *ducks and hides* In my defence I had no oven! :p

We managed to cover a few key points last night, as well as talking about the book. We have a special plan in place for the month of December! It's not quite top secret but I'll leave all of the details for another post closer to the time. I'm very excited about it though!

Strange Chemistry Winner!!

OK so the winner has been chosen. At yesterday's book club we randomly selected one of the entrants. Here's a quick reminder of what was up for grabs...

The winner is..... *Drum roll*

REVIEW - Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff

Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff
ISBN 9780230759015
Published by Tor
Published September 1st
Five out of five stars *****
I know that I say this a lot, but this book is AMAZING!!! It truly truly is. It is a crossover, so I feel it is suited more for older YA readers. It does have a fair amount of swearing in it. Before I continue with this review here is what goodreads has to say about it...
Griffins are supposed to be extinct. So when Yukiko and her warrior father Masaru are sent to capture one for the Shogun, they fear that their lives are over. Everyone knows what happens to those who fail him, no matter how hopeless the task.

Review - Katya's World by Jonathan L.Howard

Katya's World by Jonathan L.Howard
ISBN - 9781908844125
Published by Strange Chemistry
8th November 2012
4.5 out of 5 * 

Well where to start! I loved this book! It was great not to read anything with romance in it! lol
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against romantic plot lines, but they do seem to be everywhere at the moment!! Katya's World doesn't have one, and doesn't need one either. It's full of tension and mystery and more than a little humour.
