It’s moments like these when I need to take a minute and check my temperature to make sure there’s nothing wrong with me. Because looking at this high average Goodreads rating, I’m pretty shocked. Like, really shocked. I had high hopes for Let’s Get Lost: it’s said to be a fun road trip book about finding yourself, finding love, finding hope and just getting lost for a while. It definitely has that, though very basically. Throw in a moral, throw in a […]

I’m running out of praises to throw at Katie McGarry. This is yet again another brilliantly woven story and contained a swoon-worthy romance. Despite the quibbles I have with these novels, she’s still one of my favourite authors. I’m starting to feel like the characters are overlapping one and another. What I mean by this is that some of the characters feel like they’ve taken parts of someone else that we’ve already read about in previous instalments, and used bits of them […]

I was rather dubious about The Break-Up Artist at first. I do love a cute and fun contemporary occasionally, but many of the ones I have read were rather forgettable and bland. But I was wrong this time. The Break-Up Artist possesses just the right balance of humour, adorableness and emotional quality. Becca is The Break-Up Artist. She breaks up couples upon her customers’ request for one hundred dollars via PayPal. But no one knows that it’s her behind the raccoon mask […]

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 […]

After quite a displeasing debut series by Aimee Carter (The Goddess Test) I wasn’t exactly enthused to try Pawn. However when the early reviews started to roll in, I was surprised by the constant great number of positive feedback Aimee Carter’s latest was receiving. So I hopped on that train, and was not at all dissatisfied. Kitty Doe hasn’t had the best life. After she was tested and marked as a III, one of the lowest ranks on society ever, at the […]

Keep an eye out for a joint discussion-review of Indelible by Kate and myself on Finding Bliss in Books at a later date. I don’t remember the last time that I have struggled so much to finish a book and write a review for it. I honestly felt like I’m slowly dying while reviewing this so I shall get straight to the point. What I liked: I found the idea of Indelible the most likeable aspect here. While the execution was horrifying, […]

‘A doll that looked remarkably like me. With a hangman’s noose around it’s neck.’ Despite the colourful mix of genres, Banish was not quite the entertaining read I was in search for. A little dark and light, mysterious and fun, the romance and movement of this novel was lacking. Admittedly, I skimmed the last half, maybe partially due to my headed-ness, but on whole, the last half became predictable and inadequate. In hope to get away from the craziness at home, like […]
