All Your Perfects
By Colleen Hoover

A powerful and deeply emotional story *sigh* The writing is honest, it feels a bit like peeling the skin over your soul and leaving the wound open for everyone to see. The book has some silly, happy moments to soften the ache, but also dark and twisted moments that can both leave you shaking your head with disapproval and make …

Lumatere Chronicles (the complete trilogy)
Lumatere Chronicles
By Melina Marchetta

This story seems to sing to me – a song of a magical time and a magical land, a song of both love and despair, a song so sad and beautiful that could cut one’s heart in two. The Lumatere chronicles is one of the most wonderful stories you can find, with gorgeous prose and amazing characters. In fact, at …

An Absolutely Remarkable Thing
By Hank Green

I have no idea what I’ve been reading here, but I kind of liked it. This book is about a lot of things, it’s a SF, but it’s more about fame, social media and the human nature. In a way it works with the previous book I’ve read, as it shows humanity degrading at times, in a different way …

Dry
By Jarrod Shusterman

I wanted to say that (Neal) Shusterman is the king of – incredibly realistic – dystopian stories, but then I realised there are two of them now, so I’ll just let them reign over the fandom the way they like. After all, I’m only here to rave about this story, another gem I was delighted to read. Dry is what …

Even If I Fall
By Abigail Johnson

A story about broken pieces with sharp edges. A story about the aftermath of tragedy, about a family that will never be the same, about people who suffer in silence when there’s so much more to say. It gives me shivers to think of that night, as it didn’t feel like only one life ending. We follow Brooke not only …

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.

An Ember in the Ashes
By Sabaa Tahir

Did you ever feel the need to actually hug a book, to hold it close to your heart? Did you ever feel that a book was somehow meant for you? Did you ever hear its gentle call? Because I did.. I love reading with a passion and there are books like AN EMBER IN THE ASHES that are absolutely perfect (In each. And every. Way!), …

Tin Lily
By Joann Swanson

Such a beautiful book! The wonderful prose, the emotional story, the great characters.. It touched my heart, really. This book is absolutely incredible and I feel honoured to have it on my ‘favourite’ shelf. The story is dark, but also hopeful, it is a triller but also with a psychological touch, it talks about trauma but also about healing, it …

On the Fence
By Kasie West

That's it, I found a book I want to live in! For me this book was perfect: perfectly-awesome dynamics, perfectly-sweet romance and just a perfectly-bit of sadness to make up for the perfectly-amazing 'giggleness'. Yes, I am a also a 'perfect' dork in love with romantic stories, but what can I say? I just loved this story so very much! …

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 …

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.
