discussing through midnight

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— HELLO there fellow book nerds! I think it’s become a thing that I write these discussion posts literally around midnight. And well, this time I’m not really tired so no more drunk posts from me (FOR NOW) because it is the school holidays and WHO THE HECK GOES TO BED EARLY WHEN YOU HAVE ALL DAY TOMORROW TO SLEEP? Amirite? Anyhoo, today I wanted to […]

Amy Tintera’s Reboot is one of those rare dystopian series that are actually REALLY good. I’ve read multiple dystopian novels, and the Reboot Duology definitely stands near the top of my favourites. While Reboot is narrated only by Wren, Tintera’s sequel is narrated by both the main characters, Wren and Callum. And unlike some novels that have dual-perspectives, I could tell the difference between the two voices. Both are very distinct from the other and I loved both Wren and Callum’s perspective equally. […]

I’m really not sure what to rate this one, so take my review with a grain of salt (pun totally intended).  Sometimes I found myself enjoying this read and other times I found myself bogged down by the fact nothing was really happening. I found the that nothing was happening due to the fact that for vast majority of the book  as we found our main character just trying to find out how to achieve her powers. We didn’t see her being awesome […]

The Geek Girl series are some of those books that are perfect for a lazy day; they read easily and fly by in one sitting, and are stuffed with cuteness. While I do have my nitpicks, Picture Perfect was a highly enjoyable read, and I’m very curious about what Holly Smale has in store for us next. Ever since Harriet stopped modelling, her life has pretty much gotten back to how it started; with her best friend, Nat, stalker, Toby and Alexa […]

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 finally went shopping for the 1st time in 3 months. The last time was also during the school holidays. It’s mainly because when I have school, by the time I get home it’s already 5pm and the shops are already closed by then. But yes, shopping was a lot of fun, not so fun for my feet which […]

I’ve read all of Sarah Crossan’s novels now, and in my opinion, Apple and Rain is her best work so far. This book is filled with emotions, and is bound to make anyone feel. A tale of coming of age, learning what real love is and different forms of love, Apple and Rain transcended my high expectations. On Christmas Eve eleven years ago, Apple’s mother left Apple. Apple has always hoped that one day, she would come back to save her from […]

discussing through midnight

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— I have been looking forward to Discussing Through Midnight since I wrote my last one. However, I totally forgot to write my awesome feminist rant so now I’m really doing this last minute. Oooops. Instead of that I’ll just be doing a survey (which I found on tumblr is probably not related to books at all) and please feel free to share your answers in […]

It’s moments like these when I need to take a minute and check my temperature to make sure there’s nothing wrong with me. Because looking at this high average Goodreads rating, I’m pretty shocked. Like, really shocked. I had high hopes for Let’s Get Lost: it’s said to be a fun road trip book about finding yourself, finding love, finding hope and just getting lost for a while. It definitely has that, though very basically. Throw in a moral, throw in a […]
