Thanks Xpresso Book Tours for hosting this tour! Click here for the rest of the tour. Miranda Kenneally’s Hundred Oaks is one of those super cute, swoon-worthy contemporaries that you can pick up at any point in the series, and love them just as much as the next person. For me, I started reading her books since Racing Savannah (book 4) and this book, Jesse’s Girl is undoubtedly my favourite one up to date. While the first 5 books have all been about sports, this one is different […]

Thank you The Unofficial Addiction Book Fan Club for organising this tour! If you love a good revenge story, this is definitely a book you want to check out.  Gone Too Far starts off on a promising note. Piper Woods discovers a notebook on the ground on her way to class one day, and what she thought was a generic notebook that probably contains someone’s finals notes actually is filled with the true stories about several of the students that attend Piper’s high […]

YA Midnight Reads

An Interview with Rin Chupeco I’m so happy to have Rin Chupeco, author of The Girl from the Well on the blog to answer a few questions 😀 You all should go check the book out, I also reviewed the book here. Welcome Rin! If your book had a soundtrack, what would be one of the songs on the playlist? I actually maintain a playlist here but Imagine Dragons songs (“Demons” and “My Fault”) make up a good part of that – […]

~Thanks to the lovely Giselle @ Xpresso Books Tours for organising this tour!~ Currently, I have only read two of the Hundred Oak series and it definitely seems that I should remedy that because this series is so much fun. While a have a few of my criticisms, whether you are a sports junkie or not–this is worth checking out. Annie was a very easy character to click with for me. I used to run long distance a lot two years back […]

Boys Like You isn’t a bad read. It’s gratifying and the characters are not particularly irksome, the story line is engaging enough to keep you till the very end and the romance is relatively sweet. Not particulary, engaging enough, relatively: I use these words because nothing here is really meeting the full potential. I have quibbles with every aspect in Boys Like You, but taking a step back and under a less critical eye, this is a decent novel about two broken teens who […]

I’m feeling rather conflicted on how I feel about The Summer I Wasn’t Me. You see, throughout the entire time I was reading this, I was a ball of rage. Yet at the same time, I found it interesting to take a look at a perspective that I find absolutely foul. The book opens up with Lexi and her mum on their way to a heavily religious influenced de-gaying camp. After her father died, Lexi’s mother discovered Lexi’s secret and immediately took […]

Parts of me enjoyed this novel, and then there are parts of me that just could not shove away the flaws. This is my second novel by Janet Gurtler, so I guess I had expected more from her, as How I Lost You was quite brilliant. Yet all other things aside, 16 Things I Thought Were True presents readers with several important morals and themes which I believe is to why I still ended up liking it in the end. Morgan was […]

The thing about See Jane Run was that either I was bored, or I was annoyed. The Summary Riley Alan Spencer’s life changes when she discovers a hidden birth certificate in her baby book when she and her best friend, Shelby are snooping around in her parents’ room. The problem with the birth certificate is that it doesn’t have Riley’s name printed on it. It says: Jane Elizabeth O’Leary. And when she starts getting creepy postcards from an unknown, Riley begins to […]
