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 …

Sherwood
By Meagan Spooner

It pains me to give it this rating, as I love this author’s style and her previous books, but for some reason this book only half-worked for me. I enjoyed the beginning and the voice of main character, same could be applied to the ending, though it took a turn I did not quite expect. But.. there’s always a but, isn’t …

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.

Things We Know by Heart

♥ Another story that steals my breath away… I have tears in my eyes, so forgive me if my words might blur together.

The Forever Song
Book #3 in Blood of Eden Series
By Julie Kagawa

Such a wonderful ending to an amazing series! Such a rush, such a tremendously touching carousel of emotions. This story has.. everything: edge gripping action, mind-blowing turnarounds, laughing out-loud humour and a bit of a heartbreak every now and then. What more can one expect from a book, huh? Saying goodbye to these characters feels so wrong, it actually pains …

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 …

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.

Bittersweet

There is something so sweet about falling in love for the first time. About all those insecurities you might have, about not knowing what to choose, what is best for you. About wanting to risk it all but fearing that you will lose everything, about dreaming with your eyes wide open, about waiting for a ...
