Top Ten Bookish Things That I’d Like To Own in TopTenTuesday


I don't usually find the time to follow weekly memes (to read some yes; to write a post not so much), but today I received by email this post from a book friend and I started to think about all the amazing bookish things I'd like in my life. So let's see.. My 'Top 10' in no …

Review: Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay


I didn't know I was into retellings. Well... stop that thought right there, because if I think better about it, I am actually not. As what I liked the most about this book is that it has almost nothing in common with the original story. It feels incredibly fresh, it stands out on its own; Isra …

Review: Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi


I am not sure why it took me this long to review this book. Lately I've been struggling to find my words. And it is even harder with books that have tons of reviews already - what can I tell you that no one has before? We started this thing together. That’s how we’re going to …

Review: Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen


What can I say, I am expanding my reading universe these days and this is taking me on a incredibly crazy ride all over the fantastic world, meeting all kinds of strange creatures that normally I wouldn't even dream of reading about (not to mention love them). And reading about trolls would have been probably the …

Living Before Midnight… in The Midnight Cup of Coffee


This is not a post about books. This is not even about reading.. But if my words can reach you, then there is a connection formed already. And if that is the case, I'll take the liberty of asking you to think about what you see/hear next and to decide very well where to draw …

Early Review: The Forever Song 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 …

Early Review: Plus One by Elizabeth Fama


Simply as beautiful as the cover - which actually takes my breath away! Isn't it refreshing to read something that doesn't resemble anything (or 'everything') you've read before? To meet characters that seem new in many ways, but as close to you as your best friends; to witness action that keeps you on the edge of your …

Review: Run of the Mill by Dave Patten


Hidden gems are really hard to find. Lucky me, this one has found me, on its own! After so many years of reading I still can’t put my finger on the things that make me love a book… It probably starts with the tone of the ‘voice’ that tells the story – it has to be open, …

Happy Love Day! in The Midnight Cup of Coffee


Today we celebrate 'Dragobete', the equivalent of 'Love Day' (of if you want, your Valentine's Day). 'Dragobete' is a traditional Romanian holiday originating from Dacian times and celebrated on February, the 24th. On this day, considered locally the first day of spring, boys and girls gather vernal flowers and sing together. It is a common belief in some parts of Romania that, during this celebration, if you step over your partner's foot, you will have the dominant role in your relationship.

Early Review: The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski


I was lucky to receive this book, a thing that made me really happy, as I've had my eyes on it for a while based on my tiny crush on the gorgeous cover. I started reading it the very moment I got my hands on it (or well, on my kindle, but who needs so …

Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer


I have a really hard time explaining you just how much I love this series, how incredibly great it is (from the beautiful writing, to the amazing pack of characters, the laughing-out-loud kind of humour and the fascinating world and the too-awesome-to-be true plot-line) This being said.. Where's the next book?!

Review: Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi


To talk about this book.. Well I could write another novel about it, to be honest, as there are so many things to speak of - all of them great, be assured. It was just as beautiful as the first one! The world as dangerous, the characters just as fleshed out, also it felt like there was …

Early Review: 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!

Guest Post: Awakening Foster Kelly in Spotlight


Hi guys, I am pleased to have Cara Rosalie Olsen on the blog today, talking about writing, ideas that come and go &  her book "Awakening Foster Kelly". I didn't get the chance to read that story but if you did I can't wait to find out what you think of it. Happy reading and have …

Review: Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi


I really don't know why it took me so long to get to this wonderful story. It's incredible: unique, with fleshed out characters, with a confusing intrigue that only gets more interesting with each page, and a world built so wonderfully - half fantasy, half dystopia, a great mix that left me in awe. Well..

Guest Post: How’d You Get There? in Spotlight


Some of you might be familiar with the Anomaly trilogy, but for people like me - that didn't get the chance to read Krista's story - the following post might give us a bit of an insight into her dystopian world. Because Luminary is the second book in the series, I will start with the ...

Early Review: These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman Meagan Spooner


This book 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 fell in love with the …

Lucky 13 in The Midnight Cup of Coffee


First, I want to wish you all to have a very happy new year! You might have a list full of things you want achieve in 2014 (I have one too) and hopefully all your wishes will come true. And because you all might be busy celebrating, I will keep this short and leave below my 'lucky 13' of …

Happy Christmas 2013! in The Midnight Cup of Coffee


My dear readers, Thanks for being here with me for another year... To laugh and cry a bit together, to giggle and dream of our naughty book-boys. Thanks for reading my ramblings and thanks for sharing your thoughts with me as well. I hope that on the other side of the internet you are having the time of …

Review: Allegiant by Veronica Roth


Note: The review itself does not contain actual spoilers, but the feel of it and the graphics & media might spoil it for you quite a bit. Please don't read it if you haven't read the book yet.  To say that this book is my favourite in the series is an understatement. It took my breath away, …

But.. but I love those covers! in The Midnight Cup of Coffee


You know how much I love art (all different kinds of art), you know how hard I fall in love with some book covers, then imagine my disappointment when they get changed mid-series and I end up having them unpaired on my shelf! I admit, I am being such a drama queen (it's part of my …

Review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer


I need to give a very big thanks to Marissa for this wonderful story, as it made my ‘sick in bed’ day not only bearable, but quite great considering the situation… You really can’t imagine the immensity of addictiveness that comes with this story… I’d give a cyborg foot to have the next book now, LOL!
