Bones are forever / by Reichs, Kathy,

Publication: London : William Heinemann, 2012 . 288 p. ; 24 cm. Date: 2012

I love Kathy Reichs normally but I didn't end up finishing this. The story is full of distractions that I found spoilt it for me. Yet the story itself is interesting. Pity! Added 26/01/2013 by Catherine

Close to the bone / by MacBride, Stuart

Publication: London : HarperCollins, 2013 . viii, 511 p. ; 24 cm. Date: 2013

This is another awesome installment in the Logan McRae series. More snarky remarks from Steele, more bodies, more torture and more intrigue. Well worth the read.

Home front / by Hannah, Kristin,

Publication: New York : St. Martin's Press, 2012 . 390 p. ; 25 cm. Date: 2012

This book is a book that you wont want to put down until you finish it. I first opened it yesterday at lunch time, read it till 3.00 a.m. this morning when my eyes would no longer stay open and have finished it this afternoon. It is a novel but is so realistic it could be a true story. A book that will be enjoyed my many I know.

The bone tiki / by Hair, David,

Haunting Violet / by Harvey, Alyxandra,

Publication: London : Bloomsbury, 2011 . 343 p. ; 20 cm. Date: 2011

Reasonably good read. A strange plot unlike anything else I have read. Strangely enticing read, though an unusual topic. Caitlin Added 01/10/2012 by Catherine

Inheritance / Ages 14+ by Paolini, Christopher,

Publication: London : Doubleday Children's, 2011 . xviii, 860 p. : 25 cm. Date: 2011

A story that delves into the mythical and grabs hold of you. When you put it down you almost immediatly yearn to re-emerge yourself in Alagaesia. If you are a reader I would recommend the series; if not I doubt you could stick to it and it would just waste your time. Caitlin Added 01/10/2012 by Catherine

The selection / by Cass, Kiera,

Publication: London : HarperCollins Children's, 2012 . 327 p. ; 18 cm. Date: 2012

This book was totally cool; a bit predictable but wasn't about vamps or werewolves at least. The main character was tough and somewhat honouralbe. The book is easy to read and understand. Anita Added 01/10/2012 by Catherine

Came a hot Friday / by Morrieson, Ronald Hugh,

Publication: Auckland, N.Z. : Penguin, 1981 . 234 p. ; 18 cm. Date: 1981

I can see why Ronald Hugh Morrieson was described as 'our most precious; writer - he can create believable, likable characters and a fast-moving story. It's not that hard to get into and it's definitely worth reading. Sophie Added 01/10/2012 by Catherine
