Unfortunately I seem to be the black sheep for In a World Just Right. I had high hopes for this one after reading parallel universe stories such as Pivot Point by Kasie West and the Tempest  series by Julie Cross. However, I had found myself having many issues with In a World Just Right that quite impacted my enjoyment of the novel. I’m quite the logical and scientific girl. I like reasons and the explanations for things. Connecting the dots and providing evidence […]

Writing a Bad Girl/Good Boy Romance by Rosamund Hodge Everybody loves a bad boy. We’ve all heard this, and while it might not be true that absolutely everyone loves bad boys, they are certainly very popular. From Mr. Rochester on down to Loki, men who spit at the rules and do what they want have thrilled and fascinated audiences. And so has the trope of the good girl/bad boy romance–because what’s more exciting than the tension of the boy who’s almost entirely […]

YA Midnight Reads Revamp FP

Hello hello hello! Remember us? Those three lunatics who are infatuated with books? Yeah, we’re back. AND LOOK AT THE PRETTY DESIGN WE BROUGHT BACK WITH US. And of course, it could have only been designed and coded with the help of the Great and Powerful Mitchii. So girl, THANK YOU SO MUCH for dealing with all my emails and questions and everything in general. You rock. <33 If anyone is considering a new look for their blog, I recommend you check out […]

Well. I have absolutely no idea how I’m going to review this. There is so little I can say without spoiling, but I’m going to try regardless. 99 Days is about Molly Barlow, who returns to Star Lake after spending some time elsewhere. She is not happy to be back, especially since just about everyone seems to hate her. The reason for that is that she did some… stupid things a while back. (I have to be vague about this, sorry guys.) And now she’s back, and she’s […]

Admit it, you’re crazy in love. 1. You must own ALL the editions THEY’RE MINE. ALLLLLL MINE. 2. Whenever someone asks you for a book recommendation you take that opportunity to rave about the book Let’s be honest here; you’d rave about the book anyway. 3. And then you throw the book at them to read, of course Read the book, dammit! 4. Everyone is sick of you fangirling over that book But whatever, they don’t matter anyway. BUT THE BOOK DOES. 5. […]

Why Graffiti Moon isn’t more well-known I do not know, because it’s honestly fantastic. I picked this up on a lazy afternoon spent reading in the sun, thinking I might like it. I read it in one evening, completely absorbed by the story and characters. In a way, Graffiti Moon reminded me a bit of Melina Marchetta (she said, having read a grand total of two of Marchetta’s books). Not in terms of plot or even that heartbreak quality Marchetta seems to have, but because of […]

Golden was one of my favourite novels that I read in 2014, so naturally, I was expecting many things for Things We Know by Heart. Unfortunately, I don’t see this novel getting on my 2015 favourites list; but that being said, it won’t be sitting on my most-hated-novels-of-2015 either. Instead, Things We Know by Heart will be somewhere in the middle; somewhat unremarkable in my eyes. When Quinn’s boyfriend (Trent) dies in an accident, his organs are donated. Five of Trent’s organs are given away, and […]

I’ll just start off with the thing I want to say most: None of the Above is such an important book. I myself have always been lucky, in the sense that if I want to see myself reflected in fiction, I don’t have to look far. There are plenty of girl protagonists, there are plenty of white protagonists – so many books on my shelf reflect me in that way. But there are also people who have to look very, very hard to see themselves in […]
