The invaders have made it clear that their arrival is one of hostile intent, and as their takeover spreads, so does the panic across the globe. No one knows how to defeat them, or if it’s even sane to try.

Jet, Skylla’s human captor, is up for the challenge, though. A traitor in Skylla’s eyes, he is working with them.Read more >>>

 Summary

It’s the lazy end of summer and Freya is about to start her A levels. Her brother Joe died a year ago, but she is slowly coming to terms with his death. She is beginning to feel ready for something new – a change. And then a railway accident brings her by chance into contact with the gorgeous Gabes.

And then Gabes’ clearly troubled older brother makes it clear he is interested in Freya – and Freya has some decisions to make about what she really wants.… Read more >>>

Insurgent by Veronica Roth

I am thrilled to be apart of Insurgent UK and to be in team Erudite UK. The hype for Insurgent was so high, I have never seen so much hype surrounding a book before. A big thank-you to the lovely Rosi (who works over at HarperCollins) for making things so fun for everyone involved.
