Cloudwish interview q

Hey guys! I have a super duper special author on the blog today – she’s one of my favourite Aussie authors of ever, and her name is Fiona Wood.

She writes the best contemporary novels that are just so raw and honest and real – and if you haven’t picked up one of her books, YOU ARE INSANE. GET YOURSELF TOGETHER AND GO AND GRAB A […]

Goodbye Larissa

I will no longer be blogging at YA Midnight Reads. God, that is so heartbreaking to type. My reasons (even to this day) for my decision is cluttered, which I suppose with me is expected. Hah, I’ve never been the one to make simple clear cut choices and just move on without even a glance back. My decisions are often messy, with several reasons intertwined into some sort of semblance of a possible end game and a whole lot of questioning. It’s […]

Daughter of Smoke and Bone Series

    * Once upon a time an angel and a devil fell in love. It did not end well. And so it begins. The very first sentence of the very first book of the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series. I was in love. I remember reading this series for the first time – or rather, reading the first two books (I was rather late to the party) and then waiting waiting waiting for that final book. I fell in love immediately. Like, in […]

What is the point of a book? Most books, when you finish reading them, leave some kind of mark on you. You know what it was about; you have a feeling about the theme(s). Whether you liked it or not, you usually take something away from a book. A lesson of some kind, even if you disagree with it. But with Don’t Ever Change I just didn’t get that. I closed the book and thought, what was the point? Don’t Ever Change follows Eva, a […]

The Rest of Us Just Live Here was my first ever Patrick Ness read, and I have to say I’m very impressed. In a letter to the reader, Ness explains that he wanted to explore how it is not to be the chosen one. You know, the people who just live in that one town where strange things always seem to be happening. They’re not exploring alternate dimensions or saving the world – they’re trying to figure out their lives and they hope the […]

midnight madness newsletter

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads to showcase our latest hauls and what’s been going on in our lives. Latest Happenings Celine *clears throat* Um, hi… Do you guys still remember me? 😛 I’ve been really absent lately, for which my apologies! I’ve been dealing with some *situations* in real life and haven’t had much/any time or energy for blogging (or even reading!). Aside from that, I’ve been working my ass off and am now finally able to afford a new laptop […]

It has been a long time since I’ve read a book featuring ballet so the synopsis for this book attracted me instantly. Unfortunately, this one turned out to not be my cup of tea. Why I didn’t like Tiny Pretty Things: – The multiple perspectives. It’s always a hard task to get multiple POVS pat down, and while I had no trouble distinguishing the voices of the three main characters, I felt no emotional attachment towards any of them. Charaipotra and Clayton’s novel follows three […]
