It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey

Lots of review in the last fortnight, not so much on the feature front. Tis always the way; I never seem to have an even balance! Oh well, it's my blog, it doesn't really matter does it. Review will be a while coming but I whole-heartedly recommend The Mad Scientist's Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke, it is just stunning and I cried my eyes out on Saturday reading it.

  2. How are you liking Pure so far? I really liked it, but it's definitely dark & a wee bit morbid.

    1. I stayed up late to finish it off last night. Was a bit slow starting for me and my brain kept trying to work out the implied science behind the bomb. I guess it could be morbid by YA standards but I didn't think it was excessively so compared to other books I read. Have Fuse to review so I'm glad I liked it!

  4. I don't think I would normally have picked up The Mad Scientist's Daughter, but with such high praise...
