Remember
By Eileen Cook

I find the human mind to be fascinating, in so many ways. There’s a whole universe hidden inside such a tiny little thing, and as much as we like to think that we are starting to conquer the actual Universe (though by that I kind of mean observe it from a distance), we still know close to nothing about …

Deadly Design
By Debra Dockter

I love races against the clock. I like the suspense they bring into the story, how they can transform the characters, making them change their priorities and the way they see the world. I like stories about genetics, stories based on reality that step on the fine edge between science and science-fiction, that seem to bring nightmares to life. I like the plausibility …

I love reading with a passion and there are books like AN EMBER IN THE ASHES that are absolutely perfect (In each. And every. Way!), …

Broken Skies
Book #1 in Broken Skies Series
By Theresa Kay

You know that I don’t have a reading plan, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I had other books in mind when this one caught my attention. I just wanted to read a few pages to see how I would like it, but the thing is… I couldn’t put it down until I reached the last page, that’s how …

The Night We Said Yes
By Lauren Gibaldi

There’s something magical about the books that happen during one night and all the possibilities they are filled with. There’s something magical about first loves: the spark of a first touch, the uncertainty of a first kiss, the blush on the lover’s cheeks. And there’s so much magic in a night when you would only say ‘yes’ – yes to …

Golden

This book took my breath away! Jessi Kirby doesn't play with words, she plays with emotions. Her stories don't have complicate plots, but subtle ones. Her prose is so beautiful that it leaves you breathless, the edge of her words cuts deep into your soul.. You can never have enough of her stories and I can never put into words …

Enshadowed
Book #2 in Nevermore Series
By Kelly Creagh

Enshadowed is one of those stories that can simply leave you breathless and exhausted from so much beauty. I kept turning pages furiously inhaling every word and, even in the moments when there was no actual action, my elevated heart-rate made me feel like I was reading the most exhilarating of the books. In a way I was… because …

Blackout
Book #3 in Newsflesh Series

And so the story ends.. I've never missed some characters the way I miss these guys, and yeah - I already miss them like crazy. What you’re reading now is my heart bleeding all over my keyboard, because this is how it feels letting this story go.

Between Shades of Gray

Step on my heart, cut it wide open, rub it with salt and feed it to the sharks.. Or just make me read this book, because this is how it feels like reading this story. How can I call “wonderful” a book full of so many horrors? ...
