Noughts and Crosses- Malorie Blackman.

Wednesday, 23 July 2014
I know this is different from my usual posts but being the little book worm I am I thought it might be a good idea to let you know all about this book series because honestly. I have never read such an amazing book series.

So welcome Noughts and Crosses.
In a world where Crosses (dark skinned) rule over Noughts (white skinned). Cross Sephy Hadley and Nought Callum McGregor grow up together and fall in love however, because of the racial dispute throughout their lives it is difficult to withstand a relationship that is so frowned upon by not only their parents but by society. After a tragic array of events you follow the lives of the Hadleys and Mcgregors throughout the books as they tackle death, new life and new romance.

The four books that have topped my personal charts, and for anyone that knows me I do not shut up about them. My personal preference on books is that I do not enjoy happy books. (wow psychotic I know) Love stories, happy families it makes me sick. I like a good tragedy or horror or crime investigation. These stories were everything I could ever want in a book.
When you start reading these books you become a part of the story. You feel as though you a part of both families and you find yourself laughing, crying and even having your own opinions in arguments with them. It's a bittersweet escapism where you feel guilty about putting the book down knowing you're leaving the characters in that awful world on their own.

After I read the hunger games I said that I probably wouldn't find a series of books as good as that and I was wrong. I can't stress how much these books have touched my life and become a part of me. Malorie Blackman is such an inspiring woman and has definitely inspired me to create something that will make such an impact on a persons life. She is such a beautiful writer and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent reading these books. GO and check them out and I promise after the first book you will be running to get the rest! And as you can tell by the condition of mine they have been "well loved."

  1. It's always refreshing to read a review who has the same interest in books as you do. I am also not keen on reading sappy novels but I might have to add this one on the reading list because of your recommendation.
