Gee, I don’t even know where to begin. If you want a good mermaid book, this is not where you want to start. Heck, this isn’t even a mermaid book. This book for majority of the time does not even let us see the characters under the water signing Under The Sea–we didn’t even see the antagonist until the last few chapters. I can’t really give any recommendations on where to start with YA mermaid novels, truth be told, it has never […]

midnight madness newsletter

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads to showcase upcoming posts and hauls from over the past week. What’s been happening lately… Hey people! How are we all? You may have realised that there has been an absence of posts on the blog this week. This is mainly because I’ve been crazy busy with school and I have been reading books for discussion reviews for Finding Fright in Books. Here’s an update. I’d appreciate your comments 🙂 This list goes from […]

discussing through midnight

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— I’ve been seeing a lot of posts on how people review books and I thought it’d be a great idea to share how I review–or the procedure of reviewing. Whatever. So basically, I don’t have a set way. I just review them. End of story. Goodbye.   What I tend to do–or try to do is already have the post layout and book information all […]

There are no words to explain this book. No words. Just screams of denial. Just cries of happiness. Just sobs of the reluctant realisation that the sequel to Never Fade is yet, another year away. I hate you too, time. After the shocking cliff-hanger The Darkest Minds left us readers on, Never Fade immediately throws us back into Alexandra Bracken’s dystopian world, with our dangerous teenagers that hold Psi abilities. And the beloved protagonist is one of the most threatening ones, an […]

Even though Resist was not as stunning as Crossan’s first instalment, Breathe, Resist was still a thoroughly enjoyable book compact with action, survival and persistence. I just was hoping for a little more from everything. While we are welcomed back to the characters, Bea, Alina and Quinn, we also have a new addition of a voice–the mayor’s son, Ronan. Each of these are all tested and stretched to the maximums of their abilities as they attempt to strive in the writhing, oxygen-deprived […]

midnight madness newsletter

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads to showcase upcoming posts and hauls from over the past week. What’s been happening lately… EEEEEEEEEE I just finished The House of Hades on Tuesday and IT WAS AMAZING AND HEARTBREAKING AND SWOONY AND YEAH. If you have finished it, WE MUST DISCUSS MATTERS. Anywho, it was like the best day ever because I started getting really teary when I got the book (my mum bought it the second the bookstore opened). So yeah, The […]

This tour was hosted by Sourcebooks Fire. What would you do if six months of your life has been wiped out? Who would you tell–would you tell? When Chloe falls asleep in the middle of school and wakes up lying in the snow, in complete confusion of how she got there and why Adam was by her side. After all, she always thought Adam as a complete creepo. Soon, she finds out that she is dating Blake, a boy who she’d only dared […]

Hey guys! I have a very exciting cover reveal and giveaway to share with you guys today! I was a huge fan of Born of Illusion and when I saw that I could participate in the Born of Deception, the sequel’s cover reveal, I immediately took it up. It’s rare for me to do cover reveals so yeah… bear with the horrible formatting. I’m still trying to get my way around WordPress. *shy look* And now I present to you… the cover […]
