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 …

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.

If I lie
By Corrine Jackson

Oh, dear… How much can you sacrifice in your life for a promisse that you’ve made and you don’t want to break? How much are you willing to lose, when do you start living your own life & leave the past behind? The feelings: “IF I LIE” was a deeply emotional story, I’ve heard that here and there, but never truly believe it. Until I …

Dreams of Gods and Monsters
Book #3 in Daughter of Smoke & Bone Series
By Laini Taylor

I do believe in magic: the magic of words. And Laini Taylor might as well have pure magic on the tip of her fingers, as that’s how enchanted I am by her story. This series is just too wonderful for words, absolutely mesmerising! And I could never recommend it enough. “Once upon a time,an angel and a devil pressed their hands …

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 …

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 …

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.
