Synopsis from Goodreads:  In the aftermath of a forbidden moment that rocked Sydney to her core, she struggles to draw the line between her Alchemist teachings and what her heart is urging her to do.

Happily Ever Endings... The Killables by Gemma Malley

Happily Ever Endings... was born out of sheer frustration. You know how when you read a series and you love it but the last book takes a little while to come out and then you sort of forget parts of the novel? That's what these posts are going to serve to remedy. Happily Ever Ending... is a short post about what happened at the ending of each book that is going to be in a series for people who need a quick reminder of what happened in the previous installment. It's really annoying when you can't remember what happens and don't have time for a reread, so this hopefully will be a huge help! __________
Synopsis from Goodreads: Everyone accepted that people were different physically. But inside? Inside, they were different too. You just had to know how to tell, what to look for.

Evil has been eradicated. The City has been established. And citizens may only enter after having the 'evil' part of their brain removed. They are labelled on the System according to how &…

Book Review: Geek Girl by Holly Smale

Pages: 378

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Harriet Manners knows a lot of things.

She knows that a cat has 32 muscles in each ear, a "jiffy" lasts 1/100th of a second, and the average person laughs 15 times per day. What she isn't quite so sure about is why nobody at school seems to like her very much. So when she's spotted by a top model agent, Harriet grabs the chance to reinvent herself. Even if it means stealing her Best Friend's dream, incurring the wrath of her arch enemy Alexa, and repeatedly humiliating herself in front of the impossibly handsome supermodel Nick. Even if it means lying to the people she loves.

As Harriet veers from one couture disaster to the next with the help of her overly enthusiastic father and her uber-geeky stalker, Toby, she begins to realise that the world of fashion doesn't seem to lik…

Yay, I read more than four books this month! I'm slowly getting back into reading, I think, so hopefully it'll last but it's exams soon so we'll see. The Name of the Star was a reread, so that I'd be completely ready for The Madness Underneath, and seriously, this series is amazing. I hope to have my review of The Madness Underneath up this month, seeing as it's already pretty late... I finished the Delirium trilogy, with the final book Requiem, and my review is here. I wasn't happy with the open end, but I went to Lauren Oliver's signing and she explained why she left it like that and now I can …
