Fiction Express Chapter Reviews

Fiction Express have kindly sent me the first chapter for each book that is featuring on the website at the moment. These reviews I've written below are not reviews of the whole story, just the first chapter of each book.

Diary of a Mall Girl by Luisa Plaja

Love it already and can't wait for the next chapter to be released! This is about a girl who lives in a mall, with special access to all the shops and restaurants. In this chapter, Molly makes friends with a girl called Jewel who also lives in her block of flats, at her Mum's work event in the mall. That isn't all that happens in the chapter though, but if I told you everything that happened that would spoil it! You'll have to read this for yourself. This sounds like it's going to be just my kind of book and I'm desperate for the next chapter to be released!

Soul Shadows by Alex Woolfe

Omigod! I didn't think this would be my kind of story, but just from the first chapter I can tell it is. It's a little bit scary, and it really makes you sit on the edge of your seat. It's about a girl who's mother went crazy and locked her daughter in the attic for weeks. This caused her daughter to go a bit crazy too, so she's been sent to a deserted cottage in the middle of nowhere, away from the city noise, on her own for some 'exposure therapy'. She notices strange things around the house....who knew shadows could be so frightening? I definitely think this is going to be a successful story.

The Last Symbol by Rebecca Morton

This has quite a unique storyline, and I really like it so far. It's set in a different world, it definitely doesn't seem to be on Earth. Basically, when a child becomes thirteen, they have to go to school and go through all kinds of tests. Afterwards, a symbol will start to form on the palm of your hand and it determines your future. I really like the sound of this, I'll definitely be buying the next chapter. :)

The Soterion Mission by Stewart Ross

This chapter starts with loads of action, and instantly you want to know what's going on. It starts with a girl running through the forest from someone - who is she running from? Where is she going? It was really exciting. This sounds like it's going to be good, I suggest you read it! :)

So I think Fiction Express is where most of my pocket money will be going for the next eleven weeks! All of these sound so good, I think I'll be reading them all.

Thank you again to Fiction Express for sending me these first chapters to review. :)
