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 …

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 …

Becoming Rain
Book #2 in Burying Water Series
By K.A. Tucker

This is the second book in the series, and even though it was really entertaining and I liked the characters and their voices, you should probably take it with a grain of salt.. If Burying Water had the insta-love element that I didn’t appreciate that much (though I was into the story itself), in BECOMING RAIN the fact that love …

Burying Water
Book #1 in Burying Water Series
By K.A. Tucker

When it comes to the New Adult books the first thing I really appreciate is the originality, the freshness, the aspects I didn’t see (well, read about) before. This is one of the things I liked about this story, that it is different than all the other stories in this genre that tend to blend with each other. “Burying Water” …

Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless
By Liz Czukas

Lovely characters, sarcastic voice, a bit of mystery and plenty of fun – this book is full of awesome. It is a story about life, about how easy it is to misjudge people, how easy it can be to make friends if you open up just a bit. It felt real, it was sweet and funny and I …

Pulled Under
Sixteenth Summer
By Michelle Dalton

Sweet & cute & funny, a perfect summer read! A while ago I read and loved Sixteenth Summer, a wonderful story about first loves and new beginnings. So when I got the chance to read another book from the same author, with a similar storyline, I didn’t think twice about it, I just dived right into it. ‘Pulled …

Into the Still Blue
Book #3 in Under the Never Sky Series
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 finish it. This is …

Fangirl
By Rainbow Rowell

This book scared me. There were so many quotes in it that seemed copy-pasted from my own life, like this was some sort of fan-fiction about myself. I saw myself in this girl even though we do different things, make bad decisions but in totally different scenarios.. really, it’s scary. Because you see, I still …

Indelible
Book #1 in The Twixt Series
By Dawn Metcalf

From the wonderful cover to the interesting description and then to the original story-line, Indelible is a beautifully different book for fans of fantasy and not only. What started for Joy as an usual night out (meant to make her forget a bit about her problems) ended in a journey beyond her imagination; a journey to a hidden world of Twixt …

The Spectacular Now
By Tim Tharp

I like reading stories from guy’s perspective. Maybe because there are not too many out there, or maybe because it feels refreshing to stay away for a while from girl drama. Anyways I enjoyed reading this book as the main character was very likeable (even with his flaws) and his story seemed light even when it touched some heavy themes. It would have …

Book #3 in The Guardian Legacy Series

This is a series that many people don’t know about, but one that I’ve enjoyed enormously over the years. I fell in love first with Awakened a few years ago and I can tell you that the book had me laughing more than not and staying up late to finish it. Then Betrayed came over with …

Boundless
Book #3 in Unearthly Series
By Cynthia Hand

It’s always hard for me to say goodbye to a series.. To know that I’ll never meet again the characters I got to know so well, I’ll never live with them new adventures, there will be no more secrets to discover (in this case no more dreams to haunt us), there will be no cliffhanger to keep me waiting for …

The Sea of Tranquility
By Katja Millay

Sometimes there are books that take my breath away, sometimes my emotions flood my soul, sometimes words cut deep into my heart, sometimes stories don’t want me to let go, sometimes I fall in love… with a character, with a paragraph, with an author… sometimes I just feel like falling. Deep and raw, that’s how this story is.

Adorkable

This book was such a (lovely) mess! At first I had a hard time following where the story was headed. But somehow I got to love all the dorkiness, the craziness, the dizziness that the characters made me feel when they changed their mind every half-page. It was cute, it was refreshing, it was somehow original and near …

Unbreak My Heart
By Melissa C. Walker

There is something awful about feeling guilty.. It eats you from the inside, it kills the joy, it leaves you empty, it sucks the life out of you. The thing is, it doesn’t matter if you’ve made a big mistake or a small one, because your conscience will act like a magnifying glass making your memories haunt you …

Pushing The Limits
Book #1 in Pushing the Limits Series

Sometimes I get to read a book I don’t know much about and it surprises me by being entirely different than what I initially thought. (Yes, this is the case, in a very positive way). I knew there was supposed to be a bit of drama surrounding Noah and some mystery in Echo’s life, but for some reason …

Dear Travis, I know you’ve been through a lot and I care for you with all my heart. I love the honesty with which you describe your world with the good and the bad, I love how you know when you’re wrong, how you are sad to be right, how you want to say you’re sorry but the …

Social Suicide

To quote the main character: ‘Oh, fantastic amounts of fluffin’ fudge.’ This book is hilarious! In fact there are no words to describe how much I enjoyed this book and how my face hurt from so much laughing. I don’t think there is one page in the whole book without a tiny little joke. So, before starting to learn how …

This book touched the very bottom of my heart. “Love doesn’t break easily, I found. But people do. There isn’t much action and the story is simple, but there are so many emotions crammed into this little book that even my soul started to ache at some point. The writer knows how to describe the feeling of …

How many ways to kill a man do you know? Probably many, right? Now, how many of them could you use if in trouble? For me the answer is around.. arr.. none, if you don’t count the fact that I could bore someone to death, but that would take me quite a while. This being said I …

When I read a book I usually take some notes, mark some quotes, you know – the usual things you do when you want to remember what the story was about. It’s helpful if it takes you long to write the review and you read other books in the meantime. The problem is that I didn’t find anything related to …

It’s a story about a young girl that needs to protect herself and her sisters from all the dangers that might break them …

The Catastrophic History of You & Me

I love books that make me feel more than one emotion.. I love it when my chest feels tight and achey for a moment, and then it gets all sweet and giggly; when I want to cry and smile at the same time; when I feel like I can’t get enough from the story and I would like to keep …

This book was so damn cute. I know that the author’s intentions were never for me to find this story just ‘cute‘, but without taking in account all the paranormal activity and mystery, the book is more or less about this girl, Lila (one of the most innocent characters – as far back as I can remember reading about), trying …

Thirteen Reasons Why

“No one knows for certain how much impact they have on the lives of other people.Oftentimes, we have no clue.
