How do I even begin this review? I honestly have no idea what to say about Maybe One Day. It’s one of those books that I just can’t review properly, no matter how hard I try to. I just… I don’t know, guys. Just read this. As we get from the synopsis, Maybe One Day is about Zoe, whose friend Olivia gets sick. Gravely sick. Olivia has a very aggressive form of cancer. Throughout the story, we closely follow Olivia’s progress and we see and hear about all the kinds […]

discussing through midnight

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ———  Hey guys! When Mel asked me to make a discussion for this blog, I was all for it. As a new part of the blog I want to interact with its readers, of course (: Then I realized I had to actually come up with an idea of what to discuss. Writing about my obsessions with certain TV shows/movies , love of red velvet cupcakes, […]

I decided to request this book on a limb, as I’m going to Italy during the spring and I thought this book would immerse me in not only Italian culture, but also the internal and external conflicts of the Italian mafia. Yeah, this book definitely didn’t deliver on any of those things. In fact, anything that could make me react negatively towards a book occurred in Mafia Girl.  First off, the writing in this book seemed amateur. Transitions were done abruptly, run-on sentences […]

I don’t even know anymore. Seriously, what the flip was this? The whole time I read this, I was thinking: no No NO NOOOO. A complete disaster? Pretty much, seeing that I DNFed it and cannot think of one major likeable aspect. Not even a minor one. I’ll say you’re wasting your time if you try this. Though please, if you think you’ll be satisfied in the end or are curious, go ahead. But I totally, totally warned you. My first quibble […]

I’m one of the few people who actually quite liked Mind Games, and I’m pleased to say that Perfect Lies had all the things I liked in Mind Games – and more. I actually do believe that even those who weren’t a fan of Mind Games might enjoy this one. Perfect Lies takes everything from its predecessor and makes them better. While I personally didn’t, a lot of people had problems with the writing style in Mind Games. Not everyone felt that the stream-of-conscious style was exectuted well, but believe me, it’s much […]

Thank you Text Publishing for hosting this blog tour Bird really surprised me–the writing was absolutely spectacular, I loved the prose so much and I found it hard to put it down because of it. Crystal Chan also mastered the characters. They are perfectly flawed (which sounds awfully contradictory) and I felt myself growing onto them when I close the book. The presence of family is obvious and the drama within was also handled well. You know what? Bird ticks all the boxes for […]

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 guys! Yes I know, I’ve been horrible this week at keeping my blog active. This is mainly because I started school on Thursday and had to get up at 6am. My new school is 1.5 hours away and I need to take the bus, train and tram. And yes, IT SUCKS A LOT. I used to live in […]
