E&P

First thing you need to know about Rainbow's books- they're cute but not overly sweet. Just enough warmth combined with colorful sprinkles. Rainbow's basically offering us a delicious cupcake every time we pick her book up. Eleanor & Park is the second Rowell book I read....

A Must-Read Fantasy Novel

The Burning Sky has all the elements a great fantasy novels should have-magic, unique world building which is convincing at the same time, a dashing hero, a bad ass heroine, wonderful romance and more than 400 pages. The last one is a joke but I do love it when they're...

Give this debut novel a try

What Happens Next has been on my wishlist since January 2012. I knew I would enjoy the heck of it. And I knew I was right. I'm just not sure why I didn't read it the moment it was released. I've mentioned this a couple of...

Less Romance Next Time

I'm well aware of the fact I'm 2 years too late. I get that but hey! I'm here now and that's what counts. I set out to write this review but I'm still not sure what to say. I keep thinking about the romance between Karou...

interesting thriller

I knew I didn’t made a mistake buying this book. It was just as good as I imagined it would be. It’s hard to write a review for this book because that way I would give too much away. If you read the blurb you already...

slow but writing style shines strong

There are ups and downs with Lauren DeStefano. The ups are twisted world building with a slow pace which I usually hate but she makes it work and the down is that I don't know to say about Fever. It's like the whole book was wrapped in a mist and...

for younger teens

Jennifer Echols did it for the second time! I thought Love Story will be the only book I would be disappointed. The One That I Want reminds me of those Lauren Barnholdt books. It was sweet,but maybe a little bit too sweet for my taste. Sure it was written for...

not what I expected

Ehhh…what to say about this book? First of all, it reminds me of Elemental series which I didn’t like. It was a little bit better, but still not good enough. I wanted to start this year with a paranormal novel since I haven’t read one in ages....

Another Scott hit

I never thought that I would love this book as much as I do. The reason that I started reading this book was because I wanted an easy read. Something light. And I did get what I want and more. I love every character in this book...

I like it and I didn`t

I felt that Love Story was a little different from the other book Echols wrote. First of all-it's set in college and not in high-school. We already have too much of high-school dramas around so this was refreshing. I found myself unable to put down the...

The Murmurings

This was super creepy. I applaud you Mrs. West. You managed to freak me out throughout the novel. Since last year, I've been more and more interested in thrillers after so many paranormal novels disappointed me so I decided to shake things up...

Ripple

It was really good! Better than expected, completely kept my attention. I am now sad because there is no sequel. It was more contemporary romance than it was fantasy. Of course there are Sirens but this story is so much more than that. The writing style...

Meh-ish

What is the first thing you think when you see this book? It has a great, interesting and unique cover. I loved it so much I use it as wallpaper on my phone since the day of the cover reveal. And what about the blurb? Who doesn't want...

Jews in space

Starglass was a challenging book for me. I usually stay away from books featuring religion and old-fashioned way of thinking about topics such as marriage, sex and race equality and freedom to be and love whoever you want. Since I'm one of those people who doesn't like being told what...

spiritual and uplifting

So,I think all of my friends already know how much I love road trip books and I was really happy when I got an ARC. But Wanderlove is not a road trip it's a travel book with backpacks. I never this kind of book and on top of that you...
