Do You Remember At All?

This is a wonderful book for a debut author. Remembrance has a promising concept of reincarnation which I've seen, but the plot was a bit of a disappointment. The storyline was rather flat, focusing more on the characters' school lives rather than...

Fire Fire

To be frank, I wasn't so keen on this book at first. After all, I hate tragedies, and doomed love seems to say it all. But wait! Will & Jacinda's romance is far from heart-wrenching & teary-- It's simply breathtaking! How ancient creatures cross...

The Dystopian of the Year 2011

Initially, after all the hype buzzing around Divergent, I thought it might be another disappointment. But, I was totally wrong! This is one of the rare books that I finish in one sitting. Divergent does not kick off with a promising first chapter. The...
