I’m rather surprised by These Broken Stars. Sure, I expected it to be downright amazing but I never knew that it could be this amazing. Beautiful. Heart-warming. Gorgeous. Exquisite. Anymore synonyms for beautiful and hurry-up-and-read-this? “She’s not looking at me and seeing a guy brought up on the wrong type of planet. She’s not seeing a soldier, or a war hero, or an uncultured lout who doesn’t understand how hard this is for her, or an idiot who knows nothing about the right […]

discussing through midnight

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— It’s nearly my blogversary (next month!) and over this year, I have certainly learned a whole lot about book blogging. And I suspect this is the most I will ever learn in a year because to think of where I started out last year and think to me right now, I have definitely learned many terms along the way. One of the big ones are […]

I guess this just goes to show how much of a wimp I am. I nearly ran to my parent’s room because I could hear tiny creaking noises in the floorboard after reading a clearly not so scary scene for everyone else. I. Scare. Easily. Tim thinks it’s a huge stroke of luck when he finds a not only dirt cheap, but also huge expensive house up for sale. However here’s the catch, he has to live with the owner of the […]

I was rather sad about this book. Not in the way I was saddened by Just One Day—where I had some serious case of sobbing my heart out about the smallest of things. No. I smothered in sadness as I had a lump of disappointment that grew and grew as I read further into Just One Year. Nonetheless, this is not to say that I hated Just One Year with all my heart and soul. Just…let down about the way Gayle Forman […]

midnight madness newsletter

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads to showcase upcoming posts and hauls from over the past week. What’s been happening lately… Hey guys! I almost decided to not make this post because right now, I am sick. But then I decided to because 1) I have nothing better to do than sleep or vomit and 2) I am so hyped up to try the new addition on the Ultimate Book Blogger Plugin which was created by the one and only […]

Burn For Burn was fun. Fire With Fire was another story. Much more complex with depth and more of a realistic backbone, the sequel to Burn For Burn surprised me entirely. If you were not the greatest fan of Burn For Burn, I believe that this one is still worth trying because it was a huge improvement. Sweet revenge turns sour… Lillia, Kat and Mary were close to getting caught for drugging Reeve at Homecoming. So close. When Mary’s grudge against Reeve […]

This meme was created for YA Midnight Reads as a discussion post of all things bookish. ——— Hey people! I hope all of you had a fun Halloween 🙂 I feel like I always have something to say about different genres meaning different expectations from me as a reader so I decided to make a discussion post about it. There’s MG, YA, contemporary, mystery thrillers, dystopians, retellings and fantasy. Well these are the genres I normally read and quite frankly, I will not […]

There seemed to be an endless supply of completely mixed reviews for Wild Awake so I went in with low expectations and then got swept right off my feet. I see where this book could have gone upside down for some, however this madness? I loved every bit of it. Kiri has always believed that her sister, Sukey died in a car crash five years ago. That’s what her family told her and she never questioned upon it. Yet when she gets […]
