Review: Show & Tell in a Nutshell by Jessica Bell

Review: Show & Tell in a Nutshell by Jessica Bell

Show & Tell in a Nutshell: Demonstrated Transitions from Telling to Showing by Jessica Bell My rating: 5 of 5 stars  One of the most common pieces of advice given to aspiring writers is to ‘show, not tell’. But what exactly does this mean? The phrase is repeated throughout countless blogs, articles and writing handbooks, yet it is seldom explained in enough detail to be beneficial. For a long time, I had the vague notion that it encouraged writers to explain a character’s actions rather than to describe their thoughts and feelings, but I never fully understood how I could […]


Review: Wither by Lauren DeStefano

Review: Wither by Lauren DeStefano

Wither by Lauren DeStefano My rating: 4 of 5 stars  *SPOILER ALERT!* I’ve had this book on my shelf since Christmas, and finally got around to reading it last week. I was intrigued by the premise as it sounded similar to Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, which I enjoyed reading at university. The novel is set in a future in which a virus causes men to die at the age of twenty-five, and women at twenty. At sixteen, the main character Rhine Ellery has only four years left to live, and she intends to spend them with her twin brother, […]


Review: Divergent by Veronica Roth

Review: Divergent by Veronica Roth

Divergent by Veronica Roth My rating: 5 of 5 stars  *SPOILER ALERT!* I’d read many good reviews about Divergent, and heard that it had been hailed as being on par with The Hunger Games. As a big fan of dystopian fiction, I decided to give it a go. The novel is set in a future Chiago made up of five factions that each represent a virtue: Candor, Abnegation, Dauntless, Amity and Erudite. The story follows Beatrice “Tris” Prior, a sixteen year old girl brought up in the selfless faction Abnegation, but bored and restricted by their way of life and […]


Review: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Review: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins My rating: 5 of 5 stars  *SPOILER ALERT!* I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in The Hunger Games trilogy, and was eager to start on the final instalment. Catching Fire ended with the cliffhanger that there is now no district twelve and there were a lot of questions left unanswered. In Mockinjay, Katniss discovers that district twelve has been destroyed by the Capital, and all that remains are piles of ash. Most of the citizens were killed, but a small number, including Katniss’ mother and sister survived and have started new lives in district thirteen. […]
