Just a typical girl with a room full of books.


Fractured - Teri Terry

"With what I did yesterday, I should be dead: zapped by the chip they put in my brain when I was Slated"

Kyla shouldn't remember anything from before she was Slated, but dark secrets of her past will not stay buried. Caught in a tug of war between Lorder oppression and the fight for freedom, her past and present race towards a collision she may not survive. While her desperate search for Ben continues, who can she trust in this world of secrets and lies?

A charismatic but dangerous figure from her past forces Kyla to choose her own path in this tense and gripping sequel to the highly praised Slated.


I really enjoyed reading this book, and couldn't put it down because it was so gripping.

My favourite character is Kyla, she never gives up and continues to figure out the things that she shouldn't remember. However she is very weak with keeping secrets and does what she is told, which is quiet annoying because you know what it can lead to but she doesn't. Also new characters come in that were from Kyla's past so it makes you see what kind of person she was before she was Slated and how much she changed.

This book was written beautifully and in my opinion was better than the first one.


I didn't particularly dislike anything about this book maybe the ending, this was only because I couldn't find out what happened next since I didn't have the last book. 

Other than that everything in my opinion was great, the story, characters and writing was fantastic. I would recommend this to anyone who likes dystopian or mystery book because this book will blow your mind away.


A Dream Of Lights

A Dream of Lights - Kerry Drewery

It began with something so simple.

A dream.

Of a city like no city I had ever seen before...

Teenage Yoora lives a grey existence village in a small village in North Korea. But at night she dreams of the lights of a strange foreign city. Why, she does not know.

The Yoora falls in love with someone forbidden and her worlds begins to collapse as she learns the truth - about her country, her family, and the bright lights of her dreams. Banished to a prison camp, Yoora will be forced to work until the day she dies.

Or until she finds a way to escape.....


From the start this book caught my eye. The characters were well developed especially Yoora, the main character. She was different and believed that there was a chance she could escape, however bad the situation was she never lost her hope, and that why I liked her, she showed the bravery inside her though she was weak. To me she seemed so real like I knew her but we never said anything because she was speaking through the words that were written in the book, that's how she got to express her emotions and feelings.

The story itself was amazing, how it developed over time and the story unfolded as the truth came out was shocking.Every little chapter was a discovery , you find out new things which then turn into something that you wouldn't ever expect. There was a lot of tensing in this book and one scene was a little bit disturbing, but it made it more realistic.

I didn't in particular find anything that I didn't like about this book, to me this was a reminder that hope can flower in the most unlikely of places. The ending or more like the last chapters were a shock, I didn't expect those things to happen, but it was beautiful and made me happy.

I recommend this book to anyone, if you like history , then this book is the right one for you. Some people compare this to Between Shades Of Grey, I haven't read that book yet so can't really say it is similar. Give it a go because I loved it.
