The Geek Girl series has always been those books that I turn to when I’m feeling down or just lazy in general to work my brain with dark conspiracies and run down worlds. Model Misfit was exactly what I needed–typically fun and drama-filled. What I love about Holly Smale’s debut series is how she always starts her books with something shocking and not really in Harriet’s character. It really helps draw readers into the novel. In Geek Girl, Harriet’s story begins with […]

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— Heyy bibliophiles! I’ve been reading Stacking the Shelves posts for quite some time and I’ve noticed that I don’t see many people post books they get from the library. Do you not borrow books from the library? Today, I’m going to discuss the pros and cons of buying books and borrowing books. Buying Personally, I buy books when I really want it or I have […]

This tour was made possible by Xpresso Book Tours I think I’m getting to that point where I am insanely sick of contemporary romances. Six in a row is just about enough now. I’m quite sure, under different circumstances, I would have enjoyed this so much more but I wouldn’t give this more than 3.5 stars at the current situation. How willing are you to risk everything to be with the one you love? Savannah and Jack come from two different backgrounds. […]

geek gi:k/ informal noun noun: geek; plural noun: geeks an unfashionable or socially inept person. Geek Girl is another one of those reads that have a bucket full of flaws, but is so entertaining and laid back that some of them just disappear. And that’s totally cool every now and again. An imperfectly perfect novel. Harriet Manners is a geek; even the Oxford English Dictionary is in complete agreement. Without a taste in fashion, one only friend and a brain full of […]

This tour was made possible by YA Bound Book Tours “I love you, Rachel. So this will work. No matter what or who stands in our way.” I see a trend going on. Third book syndrome. Where books get underwhelming (Allegiant, Requiem etc). It’s not to say that Crash Into You was a complete disaster, but definitely not what I had in mind from such a promising and fun series so far. We start off with two total opposites. Rachel comes from […]

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— I’m going to try and keep this really quick and simple. You may have noticed that I have not been posting as much since I came back from after my hiatus. This is not because I am lazy, or just don’t feel like blogging anymore. I love blogging. However I went on holidays overseas yesterday and well, I need an actual holiday. So posts will not […]
