Thank you Allen and Unwin Australia for hosting this blog tour! This review is completely spoiler free for the series (and all spoilers are hidden in spoiler tags). Books like Every Move restore my faith in YA series enders. Why? Because I’ve just had the worst luck with series enders lately. *cough* Ashes to Ashes, In the Afterlight and Isla and the Happily Ever After *cough* But enough of complaining, let’s talk (or just ramble, in my case, as I’m experiencing a book […]

This review is COMPLETELY spoiler free Veronica Mars is a recent addiction and addition to my oh-so-monotonous life. As I write this review, it’s the last day of my summer holidays before I’m back at school for the new school year—and just less than two months earlier when the holidays started, I clicked play on the very first episode of the Veronica Mars TV series. I soon became absolutely smitten with the TV show (maaaaaaybe because of Logan Echolls) and I soon jumped […]

One day I plan to kidnap Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner so they can come and write books for me to read for the rest of my life. Let me tell you now: this is not a sequel to These Broken Stars. That’s right, This Shattered World is a companion novel set in the same world in which we follow two seemingly dissimilar main leads, Jubilee Chase and Flynn Cormac. Jubilee is the perfect soldier and she knows it: strong, resilient and a total all round badass. […]

Reading The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks just goes to show that loving one book by an author doesn’t guarantee you’ll love every book by that said author. (I should know this after reading so many books but no, I am a person who never learns ._.) I read We Were Liars almost a year ago and well, let’s just say it made my top 10 reads of 2014. (If you want to know why I loved it, I suggest you check out the discussion review/fangirling […]

Three seasons of epic, one movie of pure awesome and now a book that will totally rock your world. I’m quite new to the Veronica Mars fandom. In fact, I didn’t start watching the TV show until this book showed up in the mail, and I am so glad that it did. Before I say anything else, I highly recommend that you watch the TV show, then the movie, then read this book to have the full and proper VMars experience. The Thousand Dollar Tan […]

Before I go into my review, let me just clear up that this is a new adult novel. The characters have finished high school and most of them are twentyish, there’s a bit of sex that was described a little more than what you’d find in a YA novel. Just mentioning this because Goodreads has it shelved most as YA and that’s definitely not correct. I would have liked to know beforehand, y’know? Nonetheless, that didn’t affect my enjoyment. Anyway. I’m quite […]

Discussion review by Melanie and Celine *This review is spoiler-free* Melanie: So…We Were Liars. Totally not the most heartbreakingly epic I’ve read EVER. Nope. Not at all.  Celine: No, not at all. Instead of ripping your heart out and shattering it into a million pieces, this is a very calm and happy book. *cough cough* Melanie: Sunshines, lots of kissing and hand holding, drinking lemonade in bikinis at the beach with friends. *happy sigh*IF YOU BELIEVE ANY OF THIS, WE ARE SORRY TO INFORM YOU […]

Amy Tintera’s Reboot is one of those rare dystopian series that are actually REALLY good. I’ve read multiple dystopian novels, and the Reboot Duology definitely stands near the top of my favourites. While Reboot is narrated only by Wren, Tintera’s sequel is narrated by both the main characters, Wren and Callum. And unlike some novels that have dual-perspectives, I could tell the difference between the two voices. Both are very distinct from the other and I loved both Wren and Callum’s perspective equally.
