gorgeous and sweet but messy towards the end

"Fallon Dupree was fascinated by people in love. She noticed how easily some couples fit together like puzzle pieces, fingers laced, matching smiles, and the same small, deliberate strides." If you follow my reviews you'll know that I'm not very fond of romances, I feel like our...

beautiful style but the plot had me cringing

"Viewed from my bed, he was a distant constellation. From Alpha Centauri, we were twin stars, side by side." This book pulled me out of an upcoming reading slump and for that I owe it. It is beautifully written, it's weirdly compelling and 300+ pages flew by...

really unique and interesting concept

"I am your completion! I am your deliverance! I am your portal to the mysteries beyond this life!" I found this book simply brilliant! I've been obsessing over its concept for months now! Scythe is about a utopian society that has managed to excell in everything, world...

gosh I LOVED THIS!

different!

I didn't know what Vicious was going to be about, I rarely read synopsis, sometimes I trust the author, some others I just need key words. This time it was the former. And, oh boy, did Victoria live up to my expectations! Vicious was different. This is...

cool premise as always Ms Schwab

"You wanted to feel alive, right? It doesn't matter if you're monster or human. Living hurts." I wasn't expecting much diving into this story. Sure, we're talking about Victoria Schwab, the woman who gave birth to ADSoM, with its mouth-gaping magic system and charming characters (Gaahhh Kell...

better than the first one

"The men weren't even looking at the window when she hurtled through. And by the time she landed on the mezzanine and rolled into a crouch, two of her daggers were already flying." Finally Celaena Sardothien kicked some ass. LOADS OF ASSES! Basically, if you were not...

reading slump? here's the solution!

“I don’t like it when your head breaks.” This book pulled me out of an awful reading slump during which I started four books and got bored ten minutes into each one of them. So, for that, thank you Ms Zappia. This book is...

worth trying!

"This is who we are now, terrified and unafraid." I've never read a book like this before. Situations like the ones here portrayed are not very common where I live so I've always seen them happening very far away from me. This book...

Where was the assassin? WHERE??

"My name is Celaena Sardothien,"she whispered. "But it makes no difference if my name's Celaena or Lillian or Bitch, because I'd still beat you, no matter what you call me." If only she had actually been the bamf she has claimed to be for the entire book....

better than the first one

“You can’t feel bad every second, I wanted to tell her. Laughing doesn’t make bad things worse any more than crying makes them better. It doesn’t mean you don’t care, or that you’ve forgotten. It just means you’re human.” I must say this, I liked Hollow City...

the characters are just a bad copy of the classic Holmes and Watson

"We weren't Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. I was okay with that I thought. We had things they didn't, too. Like electricity, and refrigerator. And Mario Kart." I feel so torn about this rating. I was so very excited about this book when I marked it as...

not my jam

"The last act was to infect me with nightmares and paranoid delusions that would take years of therapy and metabolism-wrecking medications to rout out." I did really want to like this book. I love creepy pictures and most of all I love when the creepiness is coupled...

Interesting and engaging

"I've learned that people aren't cruel. Most people aren't, anyway, apart from the Logans, the Colleens, the Gavins, and the Natashas of the world, but people are strong on self-preservation. And if something doesn't directly affect them, they don't get involved. I should know; I was like that up until...

the snark is strong in this one!

"Satchel meets the boy from the amulet, the handsomest one she’s ever seen; he tells her this isn’t a safe place for her or the others and that they should run; then he tells her she’s beautiful in her own special way and that’s when she knows she can trust...
