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, …

Let the stars fall

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.

All Our Yesterdays
By Cristin Terrill

Oh my! This is what a true time travel story should be about! The suspense, the confusion, the puzzled pieces that start to fit together, the world building, the character development (both in the past and the future)… Should I really tell you how much I loved this story? It was absolutely AMAZING! It blew my mind, of course …

Golden
By Jessi Kirby

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 …

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 …

Unravelling
Book #1 in Unraveling Series
By Elizabeth Norris

Elizabeth Norris, “I fucking love you”! If I had to describe this book in only one word I would say “incredible”, but if I had more words to play around I would say something along these lines: “Mind-blowing, heartbreaking with a pinch of humor and an action/suspense overdose… all in the best possible way. Keep both eyes on …

Froi of the Exiles
Book #2 in Lumatere Chronicles Series
By Melina Marchetta

Dear Melina, Keep breaking my heart, because you definitely know the best way to do it. The first story I’ve been told was a fairytale. I don’t remember which one was it, but that shouldn’t be a problem, as they all begin with “once upon a time”, get to the point where the handsome white-horse-riding prince …

Hallowed
Book #2 in Unearthly Series
By Cynthia Hand

Oh boy, what a ride. Reading this book felt like flying with the wings wide open (not that I know how does that feel, but I can only imagine): I’ve been falling in love again with these characters, I’ve gasped at every surprise, I’ve smiled and I’ve even cried, I’ve felt Clara’s insecurities and frustrations, and her need to be …
