CASEY McQUISTON

Hot YA Writer

A Young Adult Fiction written by Annie Burrows that follows the lives of two Californian high schoolers as they navigate the mundane and digitally consuming existence that is modern teen life. My favourite part in the book is the following line… “I’m such a loser I can’t figure out whether I’m attracted to his hair” because that is such a young person problem and I really enjoyed talking about that insecure comment with my own young reader at home.

CHARLAINE HARRIS

ADVENTURE NOVELIST

Do you like reading about things that go BUMP in the night? Then this new series of books by award winning fantasy fiction writer Charlaine Harris is definitely for you. Midnight Texas is a three part book series that takes readers on a magical whirlwind ride that comprises of questionable characters, brazen dialogue and of course the action style of murder mystery writing this author is renowned for.

LOUISE RENNISON

WRITER OF TEEN COMEDY

Sadly, The Taming of the Tights, will be the last novel we see from this writer. Her passing in 2016 was a blow to the hearts of many teenage girls the world over. In fact, my own debut series The Girl Diaries was inspired from reading this beautiful woman's series The Fab Confessions of Georgia Nicholson in my early twenties. I didn't even know I wanted to write a book until I read a book series in a style I enjoyed. I actually wrote some fan fiction about Georgia and the ace gang before starting on my own work.

SAROO BRIERLEY

FILM MAKER AND AUTHOR

A memoir like no other. His story is straight off a day time television drama and yet it all really happened.

I cried, I laughed and I rejoiced as I read this book. Easily one of the best survival quests ever written.

EMERGING SOCIAL ADVOCATE

With plain language, a deliberate structure, and loads of practical examples, this is a thorough guide to narrative practice for all professions. This book covers a broad spectrum of concepts including externalisation, a non-blaming approach, therapeutic journalling and letter writing, the use of rituals and much more. If you are a community worker who is trying to apply narrative therapy or tree of life ideas in your own context, this book has been written with you in mind.

JENNA MORECI

SELF-PUBLISHED BOOK TUBER

Trigger warning: this novel contains graphic violence, adult language, and sexual situations.

 

Now we've gotten that out of the way. I really enjoyed this book. It had magic, romance, a tournament where men fight to the death and just enough plot twists to keep you reading late into the night. 

IRENE ASSUMPTER SUMI

INDEPENDENT AFRICAN WRITER

In her debut novel, No Bigger Mistake, Sumi touches on the real life of Kenyan students.

This story has love triangles, ethnic tension and deviates from the stereotypical African genre completely.

BEN GALLEY

EMANESKA #1 The Written

This is a quest that leaves nothing to the imagination. The narrative is rich and intricate, the characters are layered and the imagery is a delight. I for one can not wait to finish reading the rest of the series!

JENNIFER NIVEN

All The Bright Places

As a Jay Asher and John Greene fan, I was excited to check out this young adult fiction novel. I'm not sure what took me so long to actually get around to reading it but I don't have any regrets! This book looks at mental health and thoughts about suicide in adolescence from all angles and is a unique coming of age that has something for everyone.

CRAIG SILVEY

WHAT IT'S REALLY LIKE TO BE A BOY

I struggled with some of the social issues of the sixties, as I am certain other thirty-something readers may also experience but the honest portrayal of Jasper Jones's life was inspiring, also a little bit bitter and definitely a whole lot of fun.  It isn't a book with a purpose or even a moral that reveals itself, well perhaps people are all people but it's still a great little read.

ZARINA MACHA

AROUND MIDNIGHT

I finished Zarina's latest YA novel over the weekend in less than a day. Five Stars all the way! It is a tale of young women and the consequences of giving up everything for love. There was so much depth to the characters Macha has written, you even enjoyed getting to know the antagonist.

TARA EAST

EVERY TIME HE DIES

This is a multilayered, and heartfelt tale of forgiveness, identity, redemption, moving on, grieving, mysteries and best of all! Ghosts! This was a fabulous read and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a not so cosy ending.

This tale will fill you with wonder, and then sideswipe you with heartbreak. The events of Eli’s life are more tragic than most, but he bears his circumstances with an open heart and mind. Allowing him to explore the most gut-wrenching situations in this unique coming of age drama.
