Half Bad hits the shelves

Get your reading shoes on, and get ready to race into your local library and grab a copy of this book off the Hot Reads shelf – it’s being touted as the new Harry Potter, and the new Hunger Games, and it’s been said to have a taste of Orwell’s 1984.

How’s the reading challenge going? Still on board? Here are ten more book reviews, including four for books I thought were absolute gems – aGothic parody, a classic seen from a new perspective, an old favourite and, strangely, something about rugby. Enjoy.
