No One Needs to Know is a cute and fluffy read, but it’s not much more than that. I still thoroughly enjoyed it, though. Its premise immediately grabbed me, because I’m a sucker for LGBT books. This was just too good to pass up. Just look at that synopsis! And it really did deliver on that front, which made me happy. Told in dual POVs, No One Needs to Know tells the story of Olivia and Zoey, whose lives are somewhat of […]

discussing through midnight

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— I recently started reading the first book in the Grisha series, Shadow and Bone. After hearing pretty much nothing but praise for this series and seeing the first book was only 3 euros on TBD, I decided I had to have this series. So I went out and bought not just Shadow and Bone, but also Siege and Storm and Ruin and Rising. Many people probably think this was a pretty smart […]

I’ve been having a whole lot of books that I feel range between 2-3 lately, and I’m really not sure what to rate them. Though I do believe this one is closer to the 2.5 side of things, I have decided to be nice [; Also, despite faults I managed to have a lot of fun. There was also a undeniable compulsive writing style that immersed you in the story. Even at a large 400+ page story, I found myself flying through pages. […]

The Truth About Alice is… something different. Never before have I encountered a book that takes such a close look at slut-shaming and rumours that may or may not be true. The whole book is set up in an incredibly smart way. In sync with the actual plot, The Truth About Alice is a story told by many people with all their own opinions… Except Ailce. Oh, this is Alice’ story all right, but much like the rumours around town, Alice herself doesn’t have much […]

Please let me take a moment to congratulate myself for predicting that I would fall into a reviewing and reading slump around this time of the year. *pats self on back* So, earlier on this year, because I am so fabulously great at fortune-telling, I decided to dig a huge gap in the Google Calendar we Midnightians use to organise and schedule posts for the blog for a hiatus in the worry that I’d probably die of reviewing and reading crappy books. […]

~Thanks to the lovely Giselle @ Xpresso Books Tours for organising this tour!~ Currently, I have only read two of the Hundred Oak series and it definitely seems that I should remedy that because this series is so much fun. While a have a few of my criticisms, whether you are a sports junkie or not–this is worth checking out. Annie was a very easy character to click with for me. I used to run long distance a lot two years back […]

Discussion review by Melanie and Celine *This review is spoiler-free* Melanie: So…We Were Liars. Totally not the most heartbreakingly epic I’ve read EVER. Nope. Not at all.  Celine: No, not at all. Instead of ripping your heart out and shattering it into a million pieces, this is a very calm and happy book. *cough cough* Melanie: Sunshines, lots of kissing and hand holding, drinking lemonade in bikinis at the beach with friends. *happy sigh*IF YOU BELIEVE ANY OF THIS, WE ARE SORRY TO INFORM YOU […]
