I can definitely see where Tease lost it’s appeal. It’s written from the perspective of a bully–Sara. She’s not vaguely sorry about Emma Putnam’s suicide. Even though she and her friends are accountable for it according to the public. We have chapters that take us back to the time when Emma Putnam was still alive, but in between we get to see Sara’s current life. One that is falling apart fast. It’s like she cannot go anywhere without getting a dirty look […]

midnight madness newsletter

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads to showcase upcoming posts and hauls from over the past week. Latest Happenings Greetings! It’s been a pretty busy week on the blog, we’ve managed to post every single day of the week 😀 Bad news is that I’ve come down with a cold. I have a killer headache and a terrible blocked nose that is not helping me to sleep at all. 🙁 But this week is going to be AWESOME. On Monday, […]

In the end, The Taking wasn’t too bad of a read. While I have a lot of nit-picks here and there, but the concept was refreshing and was just engaging enough to keep me reading till the very end. Just yesterday, 16 year old Kyra was in a softball game. Today, she wakes up behind a dumpster at the Gas ‘n’ Sip with no idea how she got there in the first place. When she gets home, there’s a strange man and boy shouting at […]

discussing through midnight

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— Recently I’ve been having a huge problem: I own too many books. There are in the shelves, there are books on the floor, books running across the walls, there are books on my desk-side table, there are books in boxes, there are BOOKS IN THE FREAKING GUEST ROOM. In July, 2012 when I recently found my love for reading, I had a dream to own a […]

I have nothing new to say about Looking for Alibrandi; my review is just going to be an echo of everyone else’s thoughts. I don’t know why I took such a prolonged time to start reading Melina Marchetta novels, but I certainly regret that I didn’t start sooner. In fact, I probably should have listened to my mum when she recommended it to me last year–it was the first book she ever read in English when she first came to Australia. She […]

Discussion Review by Larissa and Mel **There are no major spoilers (just very mild ones) that will ruin your enjoyment of the book. ** Larissa: Okay I just finished this book and I’m giving it three stars. This was probably my least favourite of the Blood of Eden series. Mel: Yeah, I ended up giving this 3 stars as well. I guess nothing can come to compare with The Eternity Cure. Larissa: I found it to be quite mediocre compared with my […]

Don’t Call Me Baby left me with very conflicted feelings. For the majority of the book, I was perfectly content with giving it one star, since I pretty much hated it. But when I reached the ending, I felt much better about the book and I thought the ending was worth three stars. The logical thing would be to give this book 2 stars, then, but the first part was longer than the second, so I’m giving this 1.5 stars. Since I felt […]
