Well. It has finally happened. For weeks and weeks I’ve seen people praising The Falconer, or rather, Kiaran *cough*. Naturally, I had to read this, because who doesn’t love a good, swoony love interest? Add the whole faery-killing premise and you’ve got me wanting to read this. Fortunately, the Falconer didn’t disappoint. I did think it was lacking in certain departments, but overall, it’s a solid and engaging story. The book opens with our protagonist, Aileana, attending a ball and killing a faery. I’ve seen […]

Hi everyone! So you may know about this tag that’s been going around the blogosphere called The Book Blogger Tag. Originally, I wasn’t going to participate in it but when my good friends from Chasm of Books, Eugenia and Steph, I decided that it would be pretty fun. And what makes things even more fun is when Larissa and Celine are going to do this post with me! I thought it would be a great way for all of you blogglings to […]

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— Do excuse the extremely unoriginal title of this discussion, but I really didn’t know what to name this. Also, if you were expecting Rome pics and stuff, SURPRISE! I really don’t have enough time to upload everything right now, but at some point I will do so. That is, if anyone’s interested in pictures of churches, Rome, churches, gelato, churches, churches, did I mention churches? Rome has […]

The Truth About Alice is smartly-crafted tale that I have definitely come to appreciate as the story progressed. While I didn’t find myself loving it as I had hoped, it’s definitely worth reading as it addresses some serious topics that need closer attention in the real world. What caught my eye on this book was certainly the synopsis. Alice Franklin, one of the popular girls at school, was said to have slept with two guys in one night at a party. Soon […]

Shadowfell is my first book by Juliet Marillier. Before the publisher contacted me about the third book of this series, and I admit, I had no clue who this author was.  But now, I can definitely see where all the love for Juliet Marillier is coming from. I thought of betrayal and how it came so easily – in a word, a glance, a gesture. It’s the writing. Juliet Marillier writes beautifully and I devoured every word of it; this was probably […]

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— I’ve been on my toes, excited to write this post in ages so here we go. Please note that these are just my thoughts and beliefs, and I am not intending to force my opinion on other people. I’ll be mentioning a certain novel frequently throughout this post but it applies to many other novels out there. After reading Tease by Amanda Maciel, it really got me […]
