Our Chemical Hearts
By Krystal Sutherland

A bittersweet story.. like a tender, distant memory that lingers. I read “Inimi Chimice” (“Our Chemical Hearts”) at the end of 2016 and it’s the first international YA book I actually read in Romanian . It is also one of my favourites of the year, not as much because of the love story (quite a bit strange unusual …

Encore
Book #2 in Amplified Series
By Tara Kelly

Some books feel real. Fun and raw, with every nuance in between. That’s just how Encore felt like. And it’s more than just a book, it’s an entire experience. I don’t know what to do about this review. No matter where I try to start and where I want to finish, it all feels way too personal. Don’t …

Vicarious
Book #1 in Vicarious Series
By Paula Stokes

I am in awe! Let’s make things clear from the beginning. I loved The Art of Lainey, it was romantic and cute and so much fun.. but this one here, this is even better. So dark, so twisted, so amazing! Such a fantastic read, I can’t wait for book two and I can’t recommend it enough! I love, …

Scythe
Book #1 in Arc of a Scythe Series
By Neal Shusterman

You know what I like about Neal Shusterman? The fact that he challenges his readers with every new concept, new world, new book he writes. He takes the humanity out of the humans, he moulds it and twists it and puts it inside the souls of his characters. You think it’s not the same, that you are safe because this is fiction, …

Crooked Kingdom
Book #2 in Six of Crows Series
By Leigh Bardugo

I love a good fantasy, but always since the Lumatere Chronicles and Daughter of Smoke and Bone I’ve had a very hard time finding one on my liking. It’s difficult when the bar is set so high. But this tricky little series was just what I needed to fall in love again, with its dark settling and those …

Words in Deep Blue
By Cath Crowley

This is your next favourite book. You just don’t know it yet ^_^ “Words in Deep Blue” is both a love story and, in between, a bit of a drama. The voices whispering it are humorous though full of sorrow. The characters are broken and (against all odds) still whole. My eyes are now both joyful and tearful after …

Midnight Fun

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.

Cress
Book #3 in Lunar Chronicles Series
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?! …

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 …

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.

Every Day
Book #1 in Every Day Series
By David Levithan

Wow! This was such a feast for my eyes and mind! My thoughts after finishing the book: SO GOOD! I didn’t even have time to mark it as currently-reading, this is how lost into the story I’ve been. One of the best books I’ve read in quite a while! Full review: Romance aside, this story is about people.. All kinds …

In Honor
By Jessi Kirby

Heartbreakingly beautiful! Oh, sometimes I think that I’m so done with tragic books. They break me in a way nothing else does. They tear my heart apart, splitting it into a million pieces for wind to blow away. I love them and hate them with the power of ...

Just Listen
By Sarah Dessen

This book kept me thinking… How many times did you answer to the question “how are you” with just “fine”, or “I’m ok”? How many times did you feel like your heart was breaking but you couldn’t make it right? How many of your dark, inside secrets have made your heart break a little bit …
