The Opposite Of Amber by Gillian Phillips

The Opposite of Amber

There was nothing bad about this book but I just couldn't seem to get into it because I wasn't connecting with the characters very well and the story didn't hold my interest. I've heard some good things about it from other bloggers so I wouldn't write it off just because of my experience of it.

Currently Reading:

Waterfall by Lisa T Bergen

Happy reading for May!


  1. That's a rather lot of books! =)
    Shame about The Opposite Of Amber!

  2. I've read a lot of mixed reviews of The Opposite of Amber. I'll have to read it soon and see what I think! :)

  3. I see a lot of books on that list that I can't wait to read your reviews for (Montacute House, Prisoners in the Palace...) I've heard mixed things on The Opposite of Amber, but I don't think it's a book I'd like. I'm so happy you're reading Waterfall! I hope I haven't over-hyped it for you :P

  4. I'm a bit envious .... you've read one of the books on my wish list :-)

  5. Thanks everyone!

    @Books For Company Haha, it's the most I've read in a minth so far this year! I don't think I'll be able to get as much read this month with end of year exams coming up :(

    @Leanna I'll keep a look out for your review. I may consider trying it again in the future :)

    @Small Review Aww thanks! The Montacute House review is going up tomorrow and an interview with Lucy Jago later in the week. I got The Opposite Of Amber as a surprise review copy so I wasn't sure if it was for me either when I read the blurb. I'm sure you haven't over hyped it... you were spreading the excitement! I read the first chapter last night :D

  6. I also loved the Easter holidays and many bank holidays and got a similar number of books finished. Can't wait for half term now! :p


I love comments, they make me smile! So thank you for taking the time to write one, I read all of them.
I try my best to reply here or on your blog :)
