*BLOG TOUR* Codename Firefly – C.J. Daugherty ★★★★

Blurb; Hunters are hunting the daughter of the Prime Minister… How long will she hide before it’s time to fight back? Gray Langtry is on the run. As the only child of the British Prime Minister, Gray’s life has been in turmoil ever since her mother was chosen to lead the country. Both she and her mother are targets of a Russian assassination plot. And what’s worse, members of her mother’s own cabinet are involved. A team of bodyguards never leaves her side. The press attention is relentless. And then there are the death threats. Now, after an attempt on Gray’s life, she has been moved to an elite boarding school in the British countryside. Shielded by high walls and locked gates, Gray finally feels safe, but the plotters are still hunting, and soon they will find her. Gray’s personal bodyguard, Julia, and the school’s young headmistress are determined to protect her. They both know how dangerous things are. The assassins searching for Gray are highly trained. And when they arrive they will aim to kill. Dylan, a mysterious American student, seems to know more than he should – but he’s always there when Gray needs him. Can she trust him? Can she trust anyone? As winter closes in and darkness falls, Gray will have to think fast. The hunters are coming.

My Review; This was such a good read! Very unique. Gripping. Gray is in a boarding school which houses very special children from people who want to hurt them, kidnap them and the media wanting to capture them. Kids like Gray… The presidents daughter. But can the school handle these intruders? Is Grey safe? Is the security tight? They’ll soon find out…

An action packed, tense, gripping and fast paced read. A real page turner that I devoured. A perfect YA read. Loved most of the characters including Greys friends. This would make a brilliant film or TV series. I’d love to see more of Grey & her friends. A read I won’t forget for a long time. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.

The Paper & Hearts Society – Lucy Powrie ★★★★

Blurb; A brand new series from Booktuber Lucy Powrie – about what happens when you give up on trying to fit in and let your weird out! It’s time to join The Paper & Hearts Society …

Tabby Brown is tired of trying to fit in. She doesn’t want to go to parties – in fact, she would much rather snuggle up on the sofa with her favourite book.

It’s like she hasn’t found her people …

Then Tabby joins a club that promises to celebrate books. What could go wrong? EVERYTHING – especially when making new friends brings out an AWKWARD BUZZING feeling all over her body.

But Olivia, Cassie, Henry and Ed have something that makes Tabby come back. Maybe it’s the Austen-themed fancy-dress parties, or Ed’s fluffy cat Mrs Simpkins, or could it be Henry himself …

Can Tabby let her weird out AND live THE BEST BOOKISH LIFE POSSIBLE?

My Review; This is book one in the paper & Hearts Society series and I absolutely loved it. It’s a YA read full of books and a book club of five friends. Many mentions of other books within this book. I cannot wait to read the rest of this series. Perfect for all bookworms.

Tabby is new to the area and joins this already made bookclub but someone is holding her back from her past. She doesn’t want this to affect her new friendship and future but what can she do? Will her new book club stick by her? Help her? What I loved about this book is they all set out on a book tour and I absolutely loved that part!

Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me. I look forward to book two and three.

Ali Cross: Like Father, Like Son – James Patterson ★★★★

Blurb; Ali Cross just solved his first real case.
 
Alex Cross knows it’s only a matter of time before his son finds his way into more trouble.
 
Neither of them expected Ali to get caught up in another case so quickly.
 
Ali and his friends were just hanging out in Anacostia Park…then they became witnesses to a crime.
 
Alex wants Ali to stay far away from the investigation. But Ali isn’t going anywhere, not when his new friend Zoe is in trouble. It’s up to Ali to figure out why she’s lying to the police-and who she’s protecting.
 
This is Ali’s toughest case yet. As long as he trusts his Cross instincts, he may just have a shot at solving it…

My Review; This is book two in the Ali Cross series it would read okay as a Standalone but I love this series so would recommend in order. After loving book one I had to read book two and it did not disappoint. After book one and the case solved there is bound to be more cases/mysteries and there is…

Another of Ali’s friends gets into trouble this time over a gun shot… Can he figure it all out? There is so much to this story. Plenty of twists, turns and heart stopping moments for the reader. Fast paced, edge of your seat read. An easy read with short chapters. One I devoured in one sitting.

I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for this series. Fingers crossed for more. Brilliant YA mystery/crime. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.
