The Other Side of Lost
By Jessi Kirby

I had the following note on Goodreads, from before reading the book: “I have no idea what this story is about, but… as I loved all her other stories, this one is such a big MUST! Can’t wait to get my hands on it!” Now that I know ALL about it, I can say that “The Other Side of Lost” is …

Eliza and Her Monsters
By Francesca Zappia

Last year I’ve read “Made You Up” by the same author and I enjoyed it deeply (I should reread it one of these days and write a review for it too). So I was eager to get my hands on this beauty! There are many things I loved about “Eliza and Her Monsters”. The cover is STUNNING, I love it to …

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 …

Let the stars fall
In Blog Tours

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 ...

On The Jellicoe Road [re-read]
By Melina Marchetta

Reading (at least one of) Marchetta’s stories should be one of the “10 things to do in your lifetime”. Seriously, this woman is one of the most creative people alive, one of the most amazing writers I came across and I wish I could put into words the actual awesomeness of this book, but I feel a bit at a …

Pivot Point
Book #1 in Pivot Point Series
By Kasie West

Can someone please come and erase my memory such that I can fall in love again with this story in 2014? I really have a hard time believing that I will be able to sit still and wait a whole year for my favorite part of this story. I am even scared. I saw Addie fall in love 2 times …

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.

Split
By Swati Avasthi

I finished reading this book a while back but I didn’t really know what to say about it. It feels a bit unfair to sit in my comfortable chair, living my ordinary peaceful life, and give my opinions about such an important subject as family violence. You read in the book about all those horrible scenes and you …
