Books Read While Away

I'm back from France now and I read a lot of books while I was away!
But first I thought you guys might like to see some pics of where I went in the Dordogne...

Now for the books!

City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments #2) by Cassandra Clare

3.5/5 stars.

The Name on Your Wrist by Helen Hiorns

5/5 stars!

*I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to Random House Children's Publishers UK and Helen Hiorns*

The name on your wrist is set in England in a future where the name of your soul mate is tattooed on your wrist.

I liked Corin the main character despite her aggressive personality. She was flawed and self-destructive, a result of her father's death.

The characters and setting were all very well developed and believable. The storyline was never dull and there were a couple of twists that I didn't see coming.

This is a fantastic book that everyone should read.

Faster We Burn (Fall and Rise #2) by Chelsea M. Cameron

3.5/5 stars.

4 to 16 Characters by Kelly Hourihan

3/5 stars.

*I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to Lemon Sherbet Press and Kelly Hourihan*

This book is about Jane who has a dead mother and an alcoholic father. Jane is an internet addict and as a coping mechanism she has created several online personalities. The story is told through emails, blog posts and online messages.

I liked Jane and felt for her. Nora and Gary were my favourite characters though. This was an interesting book and I enjoyed seeing how Jane changed throughout it.

Star Trek Into Darkness (Star Trek Novelisations #2) by Alan Dean Foster

3/5 stars.

Flight (The Cresent Chronicles #1) by Alyssa Rose Ivy

3.5/5 stars.

A unique, intriguing and fast-paced novel with a likeable protagonist and a dreamy love interest.

A Moment (Moment Series #1) by Marie Hall

3/5 stars.
