Dawn of Eden (Book 0.5) – Julie Kagawa

Title – Dawn of Eden
Author – Julie Kagawa
Series: Blood of Eden
Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

If you follow my blog (maybe), you’ll know that I LOVE Julie Kagawa’s Blood of Eden series. I gobbled that bad boy up in days and when I finished The Forever Song, I cried because the emotional whirlwind of plague, friendship and general badass-ery was over.

Until.

UNTIL I FOUND OUT ABOUT DAWN OF EDEN! (Apparently this was released in 2013 and it’s just popped up in my kindle store. I feel a bit daft for not knowing about it sooner but that’s okay).

Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

I am so late to the party with this one. It’s a book that has been sitting on my bookcase for a long time and I’ve just never gotten time to read (especially now with a baby). But in this crazy world I managed to find an afternoon to do my own thing and I picked up this book.

This Mortal Coil (Book 1) – Emily Suvada

Title: This Mortal Coil

Author: Emily Suvada

Series: This Mortal Coil

Rating: ♥♥♥♥

This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada was a series that took me by storm. Another gem I found while browsing my local Waterstones bookstore, it fit my need for dystopian YA Sci-Fi after Blood of Eden by Julie Kagawa left me in a little bit of a slump. After reading Blood of Eden I found I needed two more things in my life; books with vicious plagues and kick-ass women leads.

This Mortal Coil did not disappoint.
