Hunger: A Gone Novel - Michael Grant

An uneasy calm has settled over Perdido Beach. But soon fear explodes into desperation as starvation sets in and the mob look to place blame. For the ‘normals’ the buck must stop somewhere - with the ‘freaks’.

More and more kids are developing strange powers and, just as frighteningly, so are the animals in the FAYZ: talking coyotes, swimming bats and deadly worms with razor-sharp teeth are just the beginning.

For Sam Temple the strain of leadership is beginning to show and he’s got more than just dwindling rations and in-fighting to worry about - Caine is back with the psychotic whip hand, Drake, by his side.

And in the background lies the greatest danger of all - and he too needs to be fed.

I’ve been waiting to read this for so long! But the best bit about it is the orange-edged pages. So cool!

Monster Republic: The Divinity Project - Ben Horton

An explosion in a nuclear power plant.

Kids patched up with scavenged body parts and bionic implants.

A growing army of superhuman soldiers programmed for destruction.

Cameron Riley is about to discover that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger…

A sci-fi-ish sounding UK debut. What more could you want?

That’s it for this week as we’ve had ridiculous amounts of snow in the UK this week and the country has ground to a halt so that meant no post (and three snow days!).



  1. Monster republic sounds so amazing! I must get it.

  2. I really am looking forward to Monster Republic, which hopefully I'll pick up soon. Sounds great, doesn't it?

    I'm so jealous you got snow days. I had to still trudge to work in the snow and it wasn't fun!
