Shattered Worlds challenge – that sunny Caribbean sky

The Pirate Episode is available exclusively in Shattered Worlds. Grab your copy with a click.

I travelled in time and space this week, with Kristy Tate’s The Pirate Episode. It’s a time travel romance which took me to the sunny Caribbean during the American revolutionary war.

I loved it! The sense of place was gorgeous – I could feel the sun on my face. Kristy’s writing is light and deft and I vehemently wanted a happy ending for her characters. Perfect weekend reading!

And because I am a reading demon at the moment I snapped right to the present day and also read Cookie O’Gorman’s Ninja Girl. This is her second (as far as I know) and it was just as much a delight to read as Adorkable. It is flawed – I could see the plot twist coming a mile off (way before any of the characters did, which was a bit unlikely), but somehow that doesn’t matter when you’re reading Cookie O’Gorman!

I loved them both. Check back next week to see how I got on with Slayer. It features dragon shifters, and I really hope I like it better than Shadow Queen which has the same trope but left me cold!

Check out my next project!

N is for … New Kid, new release

Well, if you read my blog last week you’ll know I was scrambling, having managed to disorder my alphabet in a rather rookie error and forgotten to line up an “N” book.

However, a dear and lovely writer I know then released New Kid in Town and I was sorted.

I don’t read many contemporaries, but now and then they make a nice change from the craziness of other worlds and magic and sorcerers which provide my usual reading fare.

New Kid in Town was a real pleasure. It gave a convincing depiction of mercurial teenage relationships. As I was reading I really felt again that dreadful tension around turning friendships into relationships when you don’t quite dare take the plunge in case your feelings aren’t reciprocated. Oh, the horror of adolescence!

If you like contemporary YA literature, give this a try.

And check back next week to hear what became of my “O” book.
