Every Last Word is one of those books that had me wanting to smash it into a pulp from page 1, but had me sobbing my eyes out sniffling a bit during the last few chapters. This story follows Sam, a girl dealing who was diagnosed with Purely Obsessional OCD (aka Pure-O) at the age of 11. While she may look perfectly fine on the outside, each day she is battling with the uncontrollable thoughts that consume her. I wasn’t quite sure I picked up […]

It’s been 3.5 weeks since I’ve read Magonia and since then I have bought this book for 2 people, recommended it to all of my friends, given away a copy as a Twitter giveaway and broken my book buying ban (that only managed to last 3 days) to buy myself the hardcover of the book. So I guess it’s safe to say that I really really like this book. They weren’t kidding when they said that Maria Dahvana Headley’s writing is comparable to the works of Neil […]

I adored the first installment of this series, Stolen Songbird. I easily gave it five stars and it shone as one of my 2014 favorites. It was because of my complete adoration for the first novel that my expectations for Hidden Huntress were set sky high. However, unfortunately my hopes were dashed as this book seemed quite typical of that horrible second book syndrome us YA readers all know of and fear. A big issue for me in Hidden Huntress is the fact I really […]

Thanks to The Fantastic Flying Book Club for hosting this tour! Click here to follow the rest of the tour. If I were to list all the reasons why I think everyone should read The Summer of Chasing Mermaids, we’d be here till we all were just a pile of skin and bones. Since I don’t want that to happen, here’s just 5 of the main reasons why Sarah Ockler’s new book is glorious: 1. It’s a contemporary novel that’s a loose retelling of The Little […]

Warning: this review contains untagged spoilers and unpopular opinions. Read at your own risk! Oh dear. I am so, so sad to be writing this review. You see, I love Sarah J. Maas. As in, love. Her Throne of Glass series gets more heartbreaking with every book and I’d dare call it one of my favourite series. Naturally, I was extremely excited for A Court of Thorns and Roses, so much so that I preordered it, which I almost never do. As soon as it got to my […]

Okay, I’m in a baking mood. So, let me introduce to you today’s recipe: the formulaic and completely forgettable The Night We Said Yes.  Begin by preheating your contemporary romance trope oven to a mild 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Begin mixing everything into a large glass bowl. For this recipe, you’ll need the very bland Ella™ vanilla flavoring.  The vanilla is the main ingredient and will wow you with its overwhelmingly paper like personality. Ella™ is inseparable from the next ingredient, though it’ll pale in comparison of course […]

Discussion Review by Celine and Mel *This is a spoiler-free review* Mel: Liars, Inc. was exactly what I was hoping it to be – a thriller that was actually unpredictable, nail-biting and totally kickass. Celine: Yes! Liars, inc. surprised me, both in terms of plot and how much I enjoyed it. I’m usually not a fan of thrillers/mysteries because they usually choose plot over characters. Mel: Haha I’m the complete opposite, girl. I ADORE ALL ZE MYSTERY THRILLERS! It’s one of my […]

Welcome to another round of mini reviews. As you might already know, I plan to do these more often as they’re more popular and well, they’re easier for me too. (But of course, there’ll still be plenty full length reviews! Just more mini ones more often, heh.) I have dubbed this edition “The One With a Lot of Sarahs” simply because 3 out of the 6 books I’m reviewing today are by authors with the name ‘Sarah’. I KNOW. What a weird, […]
