The Pact - Jodi Picoult - Thorough, great story, consistent, Long chapters
Emperor: The Field of Swords - Conn Iggulden - Another gripping story with some new characters and diffrent landscapes Nothing really stood out
Members Only - Leonie Fox - Entertaining to a point plots not followed through, pointless and outlandish storylines
What My Best Friend Did - Lucy Dawson - excellent story that is dark and shows the true extent of how fragile female friendships are. The main characters aren't particularly likeable, but this doesnt really detract from a fab story!!!
Evil Eye - Michael Slade - Gripping as always with a terrific finish and an action-packed finale Gets bogged down with this latest novel's history lesson and some signs of author laziness

|Mister Teacher - Jack Sheffield|
Great insight into life in a primary school in late 1970's
Did not focus enough on the Mister Teacher idea.
|When You Were Older - Catherine Ryan Hyde|
|The Queen's Secret - Victoria Lamb|
Well-written and paced. Unique protagonist and developed supporting characters..
Perhaps a bit samey if you've read many Elizabethan-based historical novels before.
|Blackstone and the Great War - Sally Spencer||The Shadow of Your Smile - Mary Higgins Clark||Blood Bound - Rachel Vincent|
A great story that kept me reading late into the night
None - read it!
|One Foot in the Grave - Jeaniene Frost||Damaged - Alex Kava|
Reasonably gritty, balance of action & detective elements, intelligently written
A bit formulaic, quite a few tangents made it less believable / gripping

Fantasic story, immersive world, wonderful to read
Having to wait for book three!
