For Review:

My So-Called Haunting - Tamsyn Murray

Skye, a fourteen-year-old who can see ghosts, is very stressed. Not only is the ghost of a sixteenth-century witch giving her fashion tips, but she’s struggling to settle into life with her auntie, and is developing a crush on the most unattainable boy in the school, Nico.

When her aunt asks her for help with a troubled teen ghost called Dontay, she’s glad of the distraction. But then Nico starts paying her attention, and she’s soon facing a battle to keep her love life and her psychic life separate.

As things get ever more complicated, it looks as though Dontay’s past may cost Skye her future.

I loved My So-Called Afterlife so a huge thanks to Piccadilly Press for this.


Ill Wind - Rachel Caine

Rider on the storm

The Wardens Association has been around pretty much for ever. Some Wardens control fire, others control earth, water, or wind - and the most powerful can control more than one element. Without Wardens; Mother Nature would wipe humanity of the face of the Earth…

Joanne Baldwin - fashion addict and professional, if unwilling hero - is a Weather Warden. Usually, all it takes is a wave of her hand to tamer the most violent weather. But now Joanne is trying to outrun another kind of storm: accusations of corruption and murder. So she’s resorting to the very human tactic of running for her life.

Her only hope is Lewis, the most powerful Warden. Unfortunately, he’s also on the run from the World Council. It seems he’s stolen not one but three bottles of Djinn - making him the most wanted man on Earth. And without Lewis, Joanne’s chances of surviving are as good as a snowball in - well, a place she may be headed. So she and her classic Mustang are racing hard to find him because there’s some bad weather closing in fast…

I’ve been wanting to read this for ages so when I saw it in The Works for £1.99, I had to get it.

Lies - Michael Grant

The nightmare continues…

A prophetess has set herself up by the FAYZ wall and communes with the outside world, or so she claims.

By night, a figure roams the streets of Perdido Beach - the ghost of a boy with a whip hand, haunting the dreams of those he tormented.
As side turns against side, it’s impossible to know who to trust.

But what if there is a way out of the FAYZ after all?
