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 …

Strange the Dreamer
Book #1 in Strange the Dreamer Series
By Laini Taylor

There are books that seem to live in the depths of my heart. Books that I breathe in and never breathe out, books that seem to take control over my emotions entirely, books that get tattooed on the edges of my soul because I never want to let them go. And I never want to let go of this story… …

Magonia
Book #1 in Magonia Series
By Maria Dahvana Headley

This must be one of the most eye-catching books I own, or so I seem to think. I absolutely love the simple and vivid artwork that grabbed my attention on the very first glimpse. I wanted to read it when it came out, a few years back, though with so many books on my list it was always at least …

Carve the Mark
By Veronica Roth

I actually enjoyed this book (maybe a bit more than my rating shows, so I might round it up to 4 stars after the story settles in for a while). Such a lovely surprise! I got into this book knowing nothing about the plot or the world created by the author, a rare thing for me to do, as I am that kind of person …

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.

This Shattered World
Book #2 in Starbound Series
By Amie Kaufman

THIS SHATTERED WOLRD does not give you time to think about it, you just dive into it and stop breathing until you reach the last page. But trust me, you will feel like you’ve reached that one way too soon. I, for one, could never have enough of this story ...

On the Fence
By Kasie West

That's it, I found a book I want to live in! For me this book was perfect: perfectly-awesome dynamics, perfectly-sweet romance and just a perfectly-bit of sadness to make up for the perfectly-amazing 'giggleness'. Yes, I am a also a 'perfect' dork in love with romantic stories, but what can I say? I just loved this story so very much! …

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 …

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 …

The Lost Girl
By Sangu Mandanna

If only tears could talk, they would tell you how much I loved this story.. They would tell you that pages can radiate emotions, that words can create feelings, that beauty can hurt. If tears could talk.. they would tell you how they dropped on this book drowning smiles in emotions, drowning sadness and turning it into in …

Quintana of Charyn
Book #3 in Lumatere Chronicles Series
By Melina Marchetta

This story took my breath away! If there is a book that I can read with my eyes filled with tears and my heart full of happiness, it is one of Marchetta's stories.. Her words 'sing' to us [...] - it's a symphony of joy, sorrow, fear, hate, love.. and hope.
