The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue
By Mackenzi Lee

This was such a delightful story and it had me laughing SO much! “The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue” had an incredible pack of characters (I can’t name a favourite), it was filled with action and I deeply enjoyed each step in their “tour”. The potatoes scene might need mentioning because it had me laughing out loud. What started …

Bad Romance
By Heather Demetrios

I am confused by my (highly conflicting) feelings about this book. In a way, stories like Bad Romance are vital in a (bookish) world were dysfunctional relationships are usually promoted. Too many other YA/NA books present us with overprotective, possessive, controlling and even abusing characters, and they try to paint them as such wonderful romantic stories (they are purposely misleading …

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, …

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 ...

The Last Time We Say Goodbye
By Cynthia Hand

Heartbreakingly beautiful! Do you know the feeling you get while and after you hold your breath for long? How time seems to stop for a while, how your heart beats faster and faster, how sharp everything becomes after the fuzziness washes over? This is how this book feels like. And it is wonderful, and dangerously heartbreaking.

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.

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 …

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 …
