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 …

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 ...

Tin Lily
By Joann Swanson

Such a beautiful book! The wonderful prose, the emotional story, the great characters.. It touched my heart, really. This book is absolutely incredible and I feel honoured to have it on my ‘favourite’ shelf. The story is dark, but also hopeful, it is a triller but also with a psychological touch, it talks about trauma but also about healing, it …

Shimmer
Book #3 in The Rephaim Series
By Paula Weston

Beautiful, imaginative, seductive, addictive. This story always leaves me breathless and begging for more. Aaaaarh, such a wonderful frustration! I must confess that this series is killing me slowly, because how in the world am I going to wait for god-knows-how-long until the last one comes out? It’s not like this is a more cruel ending (you know the …

There is something so sweet about falling in love for the first time. About all those insecurities you might have, about not knowing what to choose, what is best for you.

“I was nothing inside but light and color” Can you be in love with a book? I know that I can fall in love with a character, I had a few crushes here and there, but if I were to want to get married with a book, I would propose to this one in a heartbeat. Dear …
