If your going, tell me!By the time you’ve read this, I may be sitting at the exam peeing my pants. Or, maybe I am still asleep dreading the day to come. Or even maybe I’ve finished my piano exam. Either way, I have a piano exam tomorrow and it looks […]

I feel like I’m coming to the point where I just am so sick of the same stupid books that I have zero effort to rant about it. Books like The Fall suck all the energy out of my body, leaving me nothing but empty frustration. Dear The Fall, It is in my greatest reluctance to write, for what is to fourth-come is my dreary thoughts that have been dried up after reading you. I don’t think I’ll ever remember you. I […]

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— I’ve been in a reading slump lately and basically no books I’m read are helping. In fact, I don’t think I’ve given so many 1 and 2 stars in ages. Nonetheless, here’s my idea of a good book. If you a title comes to mind when you read my ‘criteria’, then please mention it in the comments. As I really need to escape my lack […]

Two Roads, L. M. Augustine’s latest, offered a humorous dialogue, sweet revenge plotting and a cute romance. However this novel is not all just a romance, this novel deals with dark issues in an unpitying way such as death and self-esteem. Despite this, the label of NA did not really seem to work for me and authentic-y was questioned as I progressed through. Unlike Click To Subscribe, the author creates two characters that are complete enemies and slowly, throughout the story, draw […]

‘Fortune favours the bold.’ There are flaws in this novel. There are flaws in all novels. However it’s up to us readers to find them and scrutinise them, or not even notice them. Some are more obvious than others. And in reality, The Cinderella Moment is a decent novel, nonetheless I had nit-picked out a few issues that could not even hide from the cuteness and characters. The main character: Angel(!!) was a little depth lacking but her bright personality and determination […]

Books like these make me seem like I have mental issues. The cliché, predictable and cheesy type. They make me my head sore from banging it on the wall so much. They make me talk to the book in great rage. Earthbound was pure fury and despair for me, nothing really worked out at all. ‘I relaxed, stopped struggling, and watched out the window as the ground rushed to swallow me.’ It’s been a while that I have found the idea of […]

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads to showcase upcoming posts and hauls from over the past week. Overall: HELLO EARTHLINGS! I really am not dead. I feel like I’m dead though, a living dead person that is being really really anti-social lately. On Twitter, school even on my blog. You may have realised that I didn’t post a Midnight Madness last week because I simply was too lazy and unmotivated. What’s even scarier is that I haven’t been reading much. *gasps*  Nothing has been […]

discussing through midnight

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— Today, I decided to make a post on blogging etiquette. The whole dos and don’ts were really confusing for me when I started blogging 6 and a half months ago and thought that this was a great time to share what I have learnt from fellow bloggers and other things that I have learned the hard way. 1. Always be honest in your reviews. If […]
