I really hate the be that girl who goes around hating every book she picks up. For the past few weeks, there have only been negative reactions to novels. Dear Killer was the same. I tried so hard to see light in it, but that’s pretty hard when it’s a pile of shit. Let’s start with our main character, Kit. She’s the Perfect Killer. A killer who kills without a trace each time. A killer who leaves notes with the body. A […]

discussing through midnight

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— Hello, Midnightians! The time for a discussion has come yet again and today, I’d like to talk about how I review. Of course, the reviewing process is different for everyone! Some might want to review a book immediately after they’ve finished, while others will want to sit on it for a few days. Some review all the books they read, others only their review copies. […]

DNF at 27% After the recent bad luck I’ve been having with all genres other than contemporary, Salvage is no exception. So after just a little over a fifth in, I decided that there is probably no point. And by the looks of my friend’s reviews, I am correct. Duncan is by no means a bad author. In fact, I quite enjoyed her writing–it’s very sophisticated yet easy to read through. Nonetheless, a series of major turn-offs in the first few chapters […]

I went into Side Effects May Vary with low expectations. I’d heard several people say that Alice was completely unlikable, that Alice and Harvey’s relationship was unhealthy, and that this was an all-around disappointing book. I guess you can see why my expectations were low. In spite of this, though, or maybe because of it, I found myself really enjoying Side Effects May Vary. Now, I’m not saying this book is without flaws. Absolutely not. People were right when they told me that Alice is […]

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads to showcase upcoming posts and hauls from over the past week. What’s Been Happening Lately Hi guys! This week has been pretty uneventful everything-wise apart from the fact that I am totally obsessed with Teen Wolf and legitimately have no life now. So that’s always great.  I also had to write a short story for my English class and totally failed because I went over the word limit which was 880 words and wrote 1017 words […]

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— I decided to do a non-bookish post today and talk about the TV shows I am currently watching. This post was inspired by my co-blog’s post where Blythe and Ellis talked about their favourite TV shows. I won’t be doing my favourite ones, but all the ones I watch some TV shows that I am considering on starting. (Which are not many.) Teen Wolf   […]

It looks like I am the tiny little dot of negative-ness amongst the sea of loving reviews. So yes, I am a black sheep. And yes, you should still consider this book because trust me, most of you will adore The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender. There’s nothing much to hold distaste towards, the characters, idea and writing are all brilliant. The main reason to why I did not like The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender was simply […]
