The Last Best Kiss is definitely one of the cutest novels I’ve read lately! This is a complete fluff-fest, and we all know I love some good fluff. That is not to say this story is without its faults, because there are some flaws. Still, I really enjoyed reading this, and I blazed through it pretty quickly. This book does make some use of tropes. We have the I-only-ever-dated-that-other-person-to-forget-about-you-but-I-couldn’t trope, which seems to be pretty popular these days. The book is very cute […]

I was rather dubious about The Break-Up Artist at first. I do love a cute and fun contemporary occasionally, but many of the ones I have read were rather forgettable and bland. But I was wrong this time. The Break-Up Artist possesses just the right balance of humour, adorableness and emotional quality. Becca is The Break-Up Artist. She breaks up couples upon her customers’ request for one hundred dollars via PayPal. But no one knows that it’s her behind the raccoon mask […]

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads to showcase upcoming posts and hauls from over the past week. Latest Happenings Mel So I (finally) made Midnight Madness work for all three of us! YAY! Now you get to stalk Celine and Larissa’s lives as well. Isn’t that wonderful? I’m starting school this week *sobbing* so things will slowly get back on track (like less of me, because I totally hogged these two weeks while I have been on holidays). *bats eyelashes […]

THAT ENDING. It should be illegal to end books like that. *sobs in the corner* The Winner’s Curse doesn’t disappoint to provide an outstanding fantasy tale with strong, relatable protagonists, a highly swoon-worthy forbidden romance, flawless world building and a riveting and well plotted story line. Even though it’s been a day since I’ve read this, my thoughts haven’t left this novel. Kestrel’s life has never been the most intriguing. She’s the general’s daughter and is given two choices: either join the […]

If that title reminded you of The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, you are awesome. But on with other awesome things, today I’m sharing with you guys the best bookish week I’ve ever had so far! Also please note majority of these photos were taken by me, but I am known to have shaky hands so some are blurry, and some I got off Twitter because the ones I took were so blurry you can’t even tell what the picture was. PTA […]

When the early reviews of Evertrue started to roll in, I was rather appalled to see so many disappointed reviews. But now, I can totally see why. Everneath and Everbound were some of my favourite novels ever–but I cannot say the same for the last instalment, Evertrue. Here were my main issues in order from most infuriating to least: 1. Jack.  A sad fact, but true. I was Team Jack ALLL the way till about 50 pages into this book.  What changed? This happened: […]

Thank you to the lovely people at The Unofficial Addiction Book Fan Club for hosting this tour! For so long, she had believed in Hitler’s lies, seeing shadows where there should have been light. Set in Germany during the rise of Hitler’s power, Prisoner of Night and Fog was a beautifully told story. I loved Anne Blankman’s take on this time period. The main character, Gretchen Müller is actually from Hitler’s inner circle—she refers to Hitler as “Uncle Dolf”. Instead of a […]

Tabula Rasa is an unforgettable novel, according to the summary. Do I agree with that? Well, I’ll let you know at the end of this review. I’ve not read many books like Tabula Rasa  in the YA genre. It’s definitely a page turner, one full of non-stop action. It captivates you and makes you not want to take a break from the story.  It’s undeniably pulse racing and will hook you from the very beginning to the end. It truly did feel […]
