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 Body Electric
By Beth Revis

I am at a loss for words Because this book really took my breath away, but I need to tell you more… I need to tell you how beautifully written this story is, what an amazingly vivid world Beth has created, how incredible and fleshed out the characters are, how mind-blowing and breathtaking the plot is, how unreliable but relatable Ella seems,…

One moment
By Kristina McBride

Oh, just look at that cover, just how beautiful it is! That was the first thing that grabbed my attention, and then there was the book description – I love stories about memory loss, about characters that need to pick up the remaining pieces of their lives and remember how it was when all pieces fitted together perfectly. On…

The Young Elites
Book #1 in The Young Elites Series
By Marie Lu

Almost there! This could have been so easily a 5 stars read for me. It is indeed a very beautiful story. The writing is as amazing as Marie Lu can write, the world is strongly built, the vivid images created by the powers of the Elites are marvellous, the characters are unique and fleshed-out at the border of becoming real,…

The Archived
Book #1 in The Archived Series
By Victoria Schwab

Wow, it will probably haunt me even in my dreams. I finished reading it and all I could think of was: how amazingly-beautiful the writing was, how imaginative the world, how full of emotion the main character.. Absolutely wonderful! Incredibly touching! “The Archived” tells a story of terrible loss – not necessary by the nature of it, but by the echoes…

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.

Come Back to You
By Liesel Schmidt

To be honest, I don’t know how to review this book. It was nothing like I thought it would be, nothing like it seemed in the beginning. And I can’t actually talk much about it in fear of spoiling it. Anyways, I’ll start with the things I liked the best: And the thing is that Liesel Schmidt really knows how to describe grief.

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…

Home is Where You Are
By Tessa Marie

I wanna hug this book! This story has found a soft spot in my heart and it simply decided to call it ‘home’. I love it when it happens, when I don’t expect much but I fall hard for a story, when the characters are so adorable that I want to take them home with me. And this book here…

The Book of Ivy
Book #1 in The Book of Ivy Series
By Amy Engel

A classical dystopian story with a spin-off, and simply as beautiful as the cover! ^_^ And not that the short-haired girl with the white dress and knife in hand is actually a truthful representation of Ivy, if I come to think about it, but the overall image still manages to fit the story perfectly. I don’t know, maybe it…

When
By Victoria Laurie

Oh, what a feast for my senses! My verdict: Incredible, addictive and absolutely well done (in terms of writing style, characters, plot, suspense, even that cute ending)! “When” (formerly called “Death Date”) is an amazing paranormal story full of mystery and turnarounds. It has a gripping plot, great character development.. and for some reason I simply can’t get it…

Take Me On
Book #4 in Pushing the Limits Series
By Katie McGarry

I think I might’ve outgrown these stories … Or maybe it’s just this family from both ‘Crash into You‘ and ‘Take me On’ that I can’t relate with no matter what. It’s all so random and inconsistent with these people. In fact with everybody in this book. – The thing with the…

More Than Music
Chasing the Dream
By Elizabeth Briggs

I am not a writer; I have no idea how does that feel like or how hard it might be. But I am a reader and as a reader I do have expectations. When I read a book I want to ‘live’ in it for a while, I want to ‘be’ the main character through it all, to ‘have’…

Dark Triumph
Book #2 in His Fair Assassin Series
By Robin LaFevers

Now we’re talking! This is what an assassin’s story should look like, this is what I expected from the assassin-nuns concept I’ve been sold the first time around 😀 DARK TRIUMPH is one of the best sequels out there, as it takes the story further and so it develops into something wonderful, something beautifully dark. “It is a good thing…

The Art of Lainey
By Paula Stokes

Beautiful, adorable, unexpectedly cute The Art of Lainey has the right amount of fluff matching the perfect amount of emotion. I read this book quite a while ago, but didn’t get the chance to fully review it, which is actually a shame because it is such an amazingly fun story and it deserves all the attention it gets (many of…

Shimmer
Book #3 in The Rephaim Series
By Paula Weston

Beautiful, imaginative, seductive, addictive. This story always leaves me breathless and begging for more. Aaaaarh, such a wonderful frustration! I must confess that this series is killing me slowly, because how in the world am I going to wait for god-knows-how-long until the last one comes out? It’s not like this is a more cruel ending (you know the…

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…

Flat-Out Celeste
Book #2 in Flat-Out Love Series
By Jessica Park

Achingly beautiful and incredibly moving! Some stories are just like that and they reach deep into the core of my soul and they fill me with so much happiness. They break my heart a bit and then wash away each tear with their intensity. … Flat-Out Celeste is one of a kind.  You are who you are. Don’t be ashamed…

He + She
By Michelle Warren

Oh, how I loved this book, how it melted my heart! Beautiful. Heartwarming. Funny. Romantic. Crazily cute. Emotional. Perfect. That’s all He+She is… and more. If I could put it in a bowl and eat it with a spoon, I would endlessly savour it and enjoy it as much as I do with the mocca-creme (as in: chocolate & coffee cream) I…

Split Second
Book #2 in Pivot Point Series
By Kasie West

This story was pretty intense There was so much action, plenty of ‘take my breath away’ kind of moments, also there were many turnarounds that I barely got to wrap my head around. It was just as insane as the first one and the need to switch between dual POVs just as strong as before (it is true that I…

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
By Jenny Han

I have this theory, that a person could like any book in the world – if the mood is right. I wonder how differently I could have seen this story; if maybe on another time I would have found it just as entertaining as other book-friends had. I really love reading and I always want to love the books…

Of Beast and Beauty
By Stacey Jay

I didn’t know I was into retellings Well… stop that thought right there, because if I think better about it, I am actually not. As what I liked the most about this book is that it has almost nothing in common with the original story. It feels incredibly fresh, it stands out on its own; Isra is not quite a…

Into the Still Blue
Book #3 in Under the Never Sky Series
By Veronica Rossi

I am not sure why it took me this long to review this book. Lately I’ve been struggling to find my words. And it is even harder with books that have tons of reviews already – what can I tell you that no one has before? We started this thing together. That’s how we’re going to finish it. This is…

What can I say, I am expanding my reading universe these days and this is taking me on an incredibly crazy ride all over the fantastic world, meeting all kinds of strange creatures that normally I wouldn’t even dream of reading about (not to mention love them). And reading about trolls would have been probably the last thing on the…

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…

Simply as beautiful as the cover …Which actually takes my breath away! Isn’t it refreshing to read something that doesn’t resemble anything (or ‘everything’) you’ve read before? To meet characters that seem new in many ways, but as close to you as your best friends; to witness action that keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time;…

Run of the Mill

Hidden gems are really hard to find. Lucky me, this one has found me, on its own! After so many years of reading I still can’t put my finger on the things that make me love a book… It probably starts with the tone of the ‘voice’ that tells the story – it has to be open, to…
