discussing through midnight

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— Today’s DTM is in the literal sense because I kid you not, it’s midnight and I’m discussing my way through it. Yes, I am up because I left my homework to the last minute and had the joy of  speed writing everything. I really love myself sometimes for my affinity to do this. Actually, I must really hate myself because HELLOOOOO SLEEP DEPRIVED MAD WOMAN […]

I’ve decided to do two mini reviews today, and because they’re both Cinderella retellings it only makes sense that they’d be in the same post (: I also sadly had to DNF both of them.   The Stepsister’s Tale by Tracy Barrett Goodreads Purchase 272 Pages Release Date: June 24th, 2014 What really happened after the clock struck midnight?Jane Montjoy is tired of being a lady. She’s tired of pretending to live up to the standards of her mother’s noble family-especially now that […]

Words could not express how excited I was when I finally got my hands on Born of Deception. Born of Illusion, the first novel was equally mesmerizing and pleasantly surprising, however, I cannot say the same for Teri Brown’s newest. Anna Van Housen has always been one of my favourite protagonists ever since I met her in Born of Illusion. Her character growth throughout that novel was absolutely momentous and realistic, and I adored every bit of it. Unfortunately, I don’t feel like I know […]

Of Scars and Stardust  was an unexpectedly engrossing read that had me flipping pages throughout the night and gasping once reading that crazy confusing but plot changing ending. Though I did find  Of Scars and Stardust  to be a truly captivating read, it wasn’t like that from the very start. It actually did take some time for the action to develop and I did find it to be on the slow side. Yes, the writing throughout the entire story was beautiful, descriptive and evocative. […]

midnight madness newsletter

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads to showcase upcoming posts and hauls from over the past week ——— Latest Happenings Mel I’m going to make this nice and short because I am heading off to watch The Fault in Our Stars with a friend at the #TFIOSMarathon Challenge which is hosted by Penguin Teen Australia.

There’s something really exciting about reading a book that was written by a teenager. I mean, how awesome is that? A nineteen year old wrote a book at the age of sixteen got her book published. While I ended up DNFing this book, it’s still amazing to think of how Lucy Saxon managed to do this. I hadn’t really heard of this book until late May where all the hype started to brew, and I think that this is a good example […]

We all give them a huge congrats for that and when we saw this tag just knew we had to participate. Tags are super fun and this one seems to be no exception to that rule.  ——— 1. Just Alice: What book cover(s) have made you super curious? Celine Tough one! Though I’m really good at judging books by their covers, none come […]

How does one review a book like this? The only way I can describe (Don’t You) Forget About Me is in one word: crazy. To be honest, I still feel a bit… off. This book was such a crazy ride of twists and madness and so much weirdness. And I can tell you right now: this won’t be everyone’s kind of crazy. Some people are going to hate this book, or feel exceptionally “meh” about it. Some might not be able to handle the […]
