January update...

A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
Only bought this because Amazon threw it out as a recommendation and I liked the look of the cover...shame really as it's a teenage "goth thriller". Had potential and an interesting idea, but the characterisation was limited. The descriptive passages slowed the pace down and i was left with a "so what?" by the end. This is the first of a series, but I'm quite happy to leave it there and not bother...I don't care enough about Gemma to see what happens. Nuff said.
