It’s the most annoying question, and they just can’t help asking you.
You’ll be asked it at family gatherings, particularly weddings.
Men will ask you on first dates.
Therapists will ask you over and over again.
It’s the question that has no good answer.
It’s the question that when people stop asking it, makes you feel even worse – why are you single?
When Mae is hired to work for the Circle, the world’s most powerful internet company, she feels she’s been given the opportunity of a lifetime. Run out of a sprawling California campus, the Circle links users’ personal emails, social media, and finances with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of transparency.
Mae can’t believe her great fortune to work for them – even as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, even as her role at the Circle becomes increasingly public…
Before the asteroid we let ourselves be defined by labels: the athlete, the outcast, the slacker, the overachiever. But then we all looked up and everything changed.
They said it would be here in two months. That gave us two months to leave our labels behind. Two months to become something bigger than what we’d been, something that would last even after the end. Two months to really live.
So, this month I’m taking part in Sci-Fi November – an event that, for me, includes reading and reviewing books that fall into the Sci-Fi genre, and today I’m also bringing you an interview with award-winning Sci-Fi author, Ian Sales!
What if you had the chance to live your life again and again, until you finally got it right?
During a snowstorm in England in 1910, a baby is born and dies before she can take her first breath. During a snowstorm in England in 1910, the same baby is born and lives to tell the tale. What if there were second chances? And third chances? In fact an infinite number of chances to live your life? Would you eventually be able to save the world from its own inevitable destiny? And would you even want to?
It is the rule of the Wilds: You must be bigger, and stronger, and tougher. A coldness radiates through me, a solid wall that is growing, piece by piece, in my chest. He doesn’t love me? He never loved me. It was all a lie.
‘The old Lena is dead’, I say, and then push past him. Each step is more difficult than the last; the heaviness fills me and turns my limbs to stone. You must hurt, or be hurt. Lena can build the walls, but what if there’s no one left to take them down?
Unflinching, heartbreaking and totally addictive, this novel will push your emotions to the limit.
Lena’s been to the very edge. She’s questioned love and the life-changing and agonising choices that come with it. She’s made her decision. But can she survive the consequences? Pandemonium is the explosive sequel to the critically acclaimed and best-selling Delirium.
I’m beginning to really enjoy taking part in these events, I think it gives our thoughts and ideas more structure and allows us to have really great discussions on a selected topic. With that in mind, I’m excited to announce that I’m participating in Sci-Fi November hosted by Rinn Reads and the girls at Oh, […]
They say the cure for Love will make me happy and safe forever. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy. I’ve always believed them. Until now. Now everything has changed. Now, I’d rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years smothered by a lie.

This is the story of how we became freaks. It’s how a group of I’s became a we. When Class 10B got their flu shots, they expected some side effects. Maybe a sore arm. Maybe a headache. They definitely didn’t expect to get telepathy. But suddenly they could hear what everyone was thinking. Their friends. Their teachers. Their parents. Now they all know that Tess has a crush on her best friend, Teddy. That Mackenzie cheated on Cooper. That Nurse Carmichael used to be a stripper. Some of them will thrive. Some of them will break. None of them will ever be the same…
