Book Review ♡ They All Fall Down by Roxanne St. Claire

I’ve said it before and I will continue to say it – I absolutely adore mystery and thriller novels. I love the chase of the plot; the intrigue of trying to work out what exactly is going on and the mystery behind the reasoning of it all. They All Fall Down was no different in this, although I do feel these books may get a little bit repetitive quite soon. Let’s get into the review!

Every year, the lives of ten girls at Vienna High are transformed.

All because of the list.

Kenzie Summerall can’t imagine how she’s been voted onto a list of the hottest girls in school, but when she lands at number five, her average life becomes dazzling. Doors open to the best parties, new friends surround her, the cutest jock in school is after her.

This is the power of the list. If you’re on it, your life changes.

If you’re on it this year? Your life ends.

Book Review ♡ Clique Bait by Ann Valett

Day three and I actually finished reading this book yesterday, but was just too flat-out tired to write a review. Let’s revisit the rules of the challenge before we dive into today’s book. The rules of the challenge are simple: one book for twenty-six days. Every day the title of the book I read has to begin with that specific letter of the alphabet.

We have already visited ‘A‘ and ‘B‘ (posts can be found by clicking the initial) so naturally, todays book is Clique Bait – the debut novel of former Wattpad writer Ann Valett. I had hoped to check the novel out before it reached publishers, and any loyal Wattpad readers will be aware the book was originally penned as The High School Hit List. So when I heard the book had been picked up by HarperTeen, I was pretty excited.

Book Review ♡ Break the Fall by Jennifer Iacopelli (A-Z Reading Challenge)

Day one of the ‘2020 A-Z Reading Challenge, albeit a day late! I apologise for the delay in getting this one out – I’ve been absolutely exhausted mentally after work. Still, it’s the start of a week and some well deserved annual leave. Let’s revisit the rules of the challenge before we dive into today’s book. The rules of the challenge are simple: one book for twenty-six days. Every day the title of the book I read has to begin with that specific letter of the alphabet.

Of course the second letter of the alphabet is ‘B’ and so today’s read is Jennifer Iacopelli’s brilliant tale of Break the Fall. The book has been floating around my to-be-read list since early February and there just hasn’t been much time to get around to it. Actually, that’s a total lie because Coronavirus gave me plenty of time – I’ve just spent my time doing other things. I’ll admit now that I massively regret not picking this book up sooner!
