March Review Roundup

Today I'm introducing a new format I'm trying out to replace my monthly reads posts. Rather than telling you about a couple of books I wasn't inspired to write full reviews on each month I have decided to use the slot more as a list of links to any book and film reviews I have published over the month. 
 I have also recently set up an entertainment review blog to house all of my review posts from this blog, Blogger's Bookshelf and to publish original content like the Statistical Probability Of Love At First Sight review found below.

Some of you have said that you would like to see more book and film reviews here at e-elise etc so if you are interested in reading my reviews you can now follow Chalkboard Reviews on Bloglovin' here!

This month's reviews...
The Culling, Steven dos Santos (2013)
The first in a new YA dystopian series named The Torch Keeper this book introduces a Hunger Games-esque world where selected teens are forced to compete against each other to be recruited by a government known as the Establishment. The stakes are high as each recruit has two 'incentives' who will be brutally murdered if they fail to complete their training exercises - click here for review
