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 …

Magonia
Book #1 in Magonia Series
By Maria Dahvana Headley

This must be one of the most eye-catching books I own, or so I seem to think. I absolutely love the simple and vivid artwork that grabbed my attention on the very first glimpse. I wanted to read it when it came out, a few years back, though with so many books on my list it was always at least …

Scythe
Book #1 in Arc of a Scythe Series
By Neal Shusterman

You know what I like about Neal Shusterman? The fact that he challenges his readers with every new concept, new world, new book he writes. He takes the humanity out of the humans, he moulds it and twists it and puts it inside the souls of his characters. You think it’s not the same, that you are safe because this is fiction, …

Eden at the Edge of Midnight
The Vara Volumes
By John Kerry

I rarely read a book I know nothing about – and yes, I do remember reading the synopsis at some point, but when I picked it up to read it I didn’t remember anything from it. As the cover shows, Eden at the Edge of Midnight describes a fantastic and vibrant world, so different than our own, filled with strange …

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.

When We Wake
Book #1 in When We Wake Series
By Karen Healey

This is a lot of rambling instead of an actual review, but I wanted to put on paper (oh well) screen some thoughts before I get to read other books and forget about this one. So.. the truth is that the story had a lot of potential – I did enjoy reading it and I think that many people might …

Timekeeper
Book #2 in Timeless Series
By Alexandra Monir

Oh dear. I can’t find my words. I’ve waited for this book for so long, wishing for it to be mind-blowing, full of twits and mystery and magical history and so I got to read it and then… I hate myself for not loving this book, I hate myself for setting up such high expectations – that’s the …

Forgotten
By Cat Patrick

I am not sure about my feelings for this book, so this doesn’t really count as a review. The concept was great – having memories from the future is something I thought about at some point in my life. Add to this the fact that London can’t remember her past (that her day ends precisely at 4:33 am taking away …

Fated
Book #1 in Fated Series
By Sarah Alderson

I wanted to love this book, I really did. You know how I liked ‘Hunting Lila’ and you might know that I like a lot Alderson’s style – so don’t get me wrong, the characters are enjoyable and there is a lot of humor in this story, but for some reason it was just …

Past Perfect
By Leila Sales

To make it clear, it’s a little bit more than 3.5 stars 🙂 AND I think I’m becoming more and more exigent when it comes to the books I read, and I’m also becoming lazy when it comes to my reviews. This is no exception. So here come some random thoughts: When I think about PAST PERFECT …

City of Ashes
Book #2 in The Mortal Instruments Series
By Cassandra Clare

Oh, how I’ve loved Jace in the first book.. why didn’t he stay the same? – Confident, charming, sarcastic, with a great sense of humor. Even Simon was funnier in the first one.. I didn’t think this book was necessary at all, it didn’t really add to the story. The characters remained in the same state as at the end …

Scribbler of Dreams
By Mary E. Pearson

How many faces does regret have? The quiet face of a lie, barely whispered. The seductive face of prying questions. The shrewd face of a deception well planned. The longing face of a dream never realized. How many faces… too many to count, and when I look in the mirror, I see them all. As my rating …

Saving Francesca
By Melina Marchetta

I don’t know what to think about this book, maybe the problem is that I read “On the Jellicoe Road” just before this one and that’s the reason I didn’t enjoy it that much. (when your mind is blown by a story, it is hard to jump right into another one) I can’t believe I said it out loud. The …

Before I Die
By Jenny Downham

“I want to die in my own way. It’s my illness, my death, my choice.This is what saying yes means.” I don’t really know what to say about this book. I didn’t like it that much, but I didn’t hate it either.. The bad: For the most part of the story I didn’t really care about Tessa, about her illness …
