Read in June 2018

A Girl on the Shore -Inio Asano
A beautiful exploration of a teenage romance in a sleepy Japanese town.


Serpentine – Cindy Pon

Loved this one and its story of friendship

Amberlough – Lara Elena Donnelly

Spies! Double agent! Burlesque! Intrigue! Betrayal!

Dear Committee Members – Julie Schumacher

Kinda funny. Perhaps would be more funny if I worked in academia?

A Tale for the Time being – Ruth Ozeki

Just gorgeous.


Annihilation – Jeff Vadermeer

Ok this was rather creepy and a very weird “I want to know what’s going on, wait, maybe I don’t” kind of feeling throughout.

Heartless – Marissa Meyer

Hopefully I’ll finally post that draft review soon!

Stepford Wives – Ira Levin

The Impostor Syndrome – Mishell Baker

Last book (I think?) in this urban fantasy series and it was a blast.

We Need New Names – NoViolet Bulawayo

Ill Will – Dan Chaon
Leviathan – Scott Westerfeld

Graceling – Kristin Cashore

A reread and I really loved it the second time around.

Shade: The Changing Girl Vol 1 – Cecil Castellucci

A strange and colourful story about a creature from another planet taking over a girl’s body

The Prince and the Dressmaker – Jen Wang

Oh I adored this one! It’s just such a fun story and beautiful illustrations. Read it! Read it!
