Fangirl Discussion Review by Mel and Celine *This is a spoiler-free review* Celine: Can I just say how much I loved this one?! Mel: Yes omg I cannot get over how brilliant this one is. Buying myself a hardcover for sure! Celine: I loved pretty much everything about this. Its uniqueness, the voice, the amazing characters, the bonds different characters have, the fantastic ship, the twisty revelations… This book just has it all. Mel: Yes girl!! That pretty much sums up all of […]

After finishing this book at around 2am last night, I spent the next hour contemplating on whether I should get out of bed and walk across the hallway to go to the bathroom. Why did I spend an hour? Because this book left me totally freaked out about my own house. Yep, that’s right. This book is scared the crap out of me. And no jokes, I nearly pissed my pajama pants because I didn’t have the guts to get out of […]

Before I get crackin’, here’s the proper review of Falling into Place by Amy Zhang here (which was reviewed by the lovely Celine and FYI, she gave it 5 stars). I cannot even remember the day when I first found out about this book but I have been excited ever since, and I was surely not disappointed. Falling Into Place is one of those books that simultaneously punch you in the gut whilst it digs a deep hole into your heart. Yeah, it’s one […]

Wow. That was my first thought when I finished Falling Into Place and I have a feeling it’s a thought that will remain for a while. It’s been a while since I’ve read such an incredibly powerful, sad, amazing novel. It manages to give you both a sense of complete hopelessness and hope. It’s a story that will gove you goosebumps because of the way it’s told. Most of all, it’s incredible. Falling Into Place is what I call a “silent” novel. Not because it […]

DNF at 27% After the recent bad luck I’ve been having with all genres other than contemporary, Salvage is no exception. So after just a little over a fifth in, I decided that there is probably no point. And by the looks of my friend’s reviews, I am correct. Duncan is by no means a bad author. In fact, I quite enjoyed her writing–it’s very sophisticated yet easy to read through. Nonetheless, a series of major turn-offs in the first few chapters […]

Death Sworn was such a refreshing read! If you are tired of all the clichés, Death Sworn is definitely for you. This right here was a novel without instant love, unnecessary angst, or whiny characters. This right here was a novel with an actual plot, characters that actually use their brains, and a MC who is not a special snowflake. The heroine of the story, Ileni, is nothing like your typical YA protagonist. For starters, in this story she grows out of her powers instead of into […]
