You do not simply read Illuminae. Oh no, this book is an experience. It’s like reading art. It’s a heartbreaking work of genius. Kaufman and Kristoff’s words are some of the most awesome and beautiful I have ever read. The plot is just on another level. It’s got sci-fi, explosions in space, romance, conspiracy, kick-arse characters and an artificial intelligence questioning life. Kaufman and Kristoff have created a book that is so unique, mind-blowing and witty, yet beautiful and complex, that I’ve still got a book hangover weeks after reading it. Illuminae is now one of my favourite books, and I think it will be for a while yet.

A-Thousand-Nights-E.K.-Johnston  A Thousand Nights by E K Johnston

A re-imagined version of the traditional Arabian Nights story. This book is a magical, cultural journey through the desert. It immerses you in a completely new world. We recommend this for anyone who is a fan of history, fantasy, magic and mystery. It has all the ingredients for an amazing read, including a strong female protagonist. Excellent writing and a gripping plot!
