Warcross
Book #1 in Warcross Series
By Marie Lu

Warcross was an exciting story, set in a world where technology took quite a few steps forward and games became a way of living. The plot follows Emika Chen, in a labyrinth of secrets and lies, struggling among friends and enemies, trying to conceive (what seems to be) the impossible. In the beginning she is just a bounty hunter, struggling …

Saving Francesca
By Melina Marchetta

A moment of truth: I’ve felt depressed – on and off, in a way or another – my entire life. Not like Mia, but I had my share of sad moments, my ‘down’ moments, some kind of sorrow that seemed to linger at the edges of my consciousness. I don’t remember myself “before” (maybe I was even born this way, …

And I Darken
Book #1 in The Conqueror's Saga Series
By Kiersten White

I probably enjoyed this book more than I should have, lol, but it felt refreshing to read something inspired by my country’s history, even though some aspects didn’t feel accurate – historical or not, it IS fiction after all, so I let the author take her story wherever she wants (not that I was too fond of history in school to notice …

Girl in Pieces
By Kathleen Glasgow

There are books that need to be written. For us to be able to understand, (or) to heal our own wounds, (or) to let us know that life goes on. There are words that need to be said, that are stuck in one’s throat, threatening to choke him/her if there’s no one there to hear them. GIRL IN PIECES it’s …

This is How it Happened
By Paula Stokes

It pains me to give such a low rating to this book, because – even though I did not enjoy the storyline and the main character as I should have – the message behind this book is incredibly powerful and important. We live in a world where people hide behind their keyboards, throwing hate around like knifes. They cut deep …

Re-reading “The Winner’s Curse”
Book #1 in Winner's Trilogy Series
By Marie Rutkoski

I first read this book before it came out in the US, courtesy of the publisher. Back then I was looking for a (mushy) love story to sweep me off my feet, funny thing. It didn’t feel precisely like attaining that goal at that point, as I was left needing more. Much more (like butterflies and rainbows and kisses …

Let the stars fall
In Blog Tours

STARFALL Launch Blitz & Giveaway I can’t believe Starfall by Melissa Landers is already out in the world and I haven’t written my praise for Starflight yet on the blog. Need to do that like yesterday! But take my word for it now, Starflight was one of the funniest stories! I loved both narrators with their sweet banter, the action-packed …

Build me a time-machine
[The Undercurrent]
In The Midnight Cup of Coffee

Yesterday, please!.. Truth being told, I am always extremely eager to read books that are miles months/years away, no matter how many books I own and I need to read in the present moment. For example… Today I read the newsletter from Paula Weston announcing her next book. It only mentioned a title and I started hyperventilating nonetheless.

The Forever Song
Book #3 in Blood of Eden Series
By Julie Kagawa

Such a wonderful ending to an amazing series! Such a rush, such a tremendously touching carousel of emotions. This story has.. everything: edge gripping action, mind-blowing turnarounds, laughing out-loud humour and a bit of a heartbreak every now and then. What more can one expect from a book, huh? Saying goodbye to these characters feels so wrong, it actually pains …

These Broken Stars
Book #1 in Starbound Series
By Amie Kaufman

One of my top favourite stories! “These Broken Stars” reminds me why I love reading so much. How trilling it is to dive into a new story, a new world, new lives and new adventures that leave me breathless every time… Breathtaking – this story is indeed! I went into it blindly, not reading a thing about it. I …

Champion
Book #3 in Legend Series
By Marie Lu

This is one of the best conclusions to a series! The very best. *wiping tears* Seriously! And it felt so ..right, you know? Not all butterflies and cheers and happiness, but right and real and beautiful and raw. The action, the suspense, the dramatic romance, the bittersweet ending… every moment and every page, every single word in this book..

On The Jellicoe Road [re-read]
By Melina Marchetta

Reading (at least one of) Marchetta’s stories should be one of the “10 things to do in your lifetime”. Seriously, this woman is one of the most creative people alive, one of the most amazing writers I came across and I wish I could put into words the actual awesomeness of this book, but I feel a bit at a …

Moonglass
By Jessi Kirby

“I read once that water is a symbol for emotions. And for a while now, I’ve thought maybe my mother drowned in both.” If it weren’t for the heartbreak I would love to be one of Jessi’s characters. I love her stories. She has this talent – she can make you laugh and cry almost …

Unravelling
Book #1 in Unraveling Series
By Elizabeth Norris

Elizabeth Norris, “I fucking love you”! If I had to describe this book in only one word I would say “incredible”, but if I had more words to play around I would say something along these lines: “Mind-blowing, heartbreaking with a pinch of humor and an action/suspense overdose… all in the best possible way. Keep both eyes on …
