Fun but not memorable

This was actually pretty fun. The Nightmare Affair was one my list of top 5 most anticipated debut novels this year. Ever since I read the blurb I knew I wanted to read it because I've never read a book about a real Nightmare. Dusty invades...

a great main male character

I was sitting here for 41 minutes, staring at the screen, trying to figure out what to say about this book. What to say to make people want to buy it and read it? Should I beg? Please, please, read it! The story starts of with...

A quick and sweet summer read

Even though this is my first Sarah Dessen novel I feel like she is the YA version of Nicholas Sparks. Her novels could easily be made into movies. The plot just flows smoothly you never get to the part where you say Oh this is boring. She makes the most...

A typical Sparks novel

The Last Song is by far so much better than the movie. Hands down. There are so many details that were not done in the movie that Sparks truly made the book feel complete and perfect. Since Nicholas Sparks wrote it, it is already a given...

If you love one Elizabeth Scott novel, you`ll love them all

Reason why I liked this book would be that it reminded me of diaries because everything Hannah said seemed like it came from a diary. It’s just that I kept a journal for a couple of years, while I was in highschool and it looked something like that. Pages and...

Great but not perfect

Sometimes I can be the biggest idiot on the planet. You see I had this book for a year and a half but I waited until all 3 were translated to Croatian. I didn’t want to read the first two and then have to wait a lot for the last...

A heartbreaking, slow burning story

I would recommend The Beginning of After to those who recently lost someone dear. It was really a book of healing. I have read reviews on this book and find people saying that nothing happens. It really is not a story with a lot going on....

Impressive

Well, this was interesting! Even though I wasn't sure what was happening in the first half of book I couldn't get enough of it. I usually get frustrated whenever I don't get some answers by the first half of the book but I didn't mind the suspense...

hearbreaking and beautiful

This really is one of the most beautiful stories I have ever read. It had me laughing, and it had me crying. It had me feeling so low, I was effected when I put the book down, yet so happy and hopeful for myself, that it left me smiley and...

Aussie jewel

Actually, there's no other way to rate this book other than giving it 5 shinning stars. And just like Jellicoe Road I'm speechless. What to say about Marchetta which hasn't already been said? If you still haven't read at least one of her books I just can't take you as...

Nothing like the debut novel

What the hell was that ending? I had to read 170-180 bloody boring pages until there was an improvement with the story only to be stopped again because, surprise, surprise, nothing happened for the next hundred pages. It was all about waiting, sleeping, eating, washing dishes, that sort of things....

One of the scariest books I've read

This book FREAKED ME OUT in the beginning. I was really scared,I had to see several episodes of South Park to stop looking in the dark corners of my room. :D Was anyone thinking about Supernatural while reading this book? I was. It contains...

Such a Rush

It’s been a year or so since the last time I read a Jennifer Echols novel. Let’s just say that experience was not pleasant. Her last book-Love Story was just wrong. Like it was written by someone else. This one makes up for that mistake. Every...

The Lying Game >>>>>> Pretty Little Liars

This review contains spoilers. You’ve been warned! Even though Pretty Little Liars is much more popular I prefer The Lying Game. It just seems more realistic and the plotline still makes sense while PLL has been dragged for way to long. How many books are there? 14?...

Perfect summer read

This is my third Dessen book and it's the most relatable, so far. It's a story about Remy, a girl who doesn't believe in love because she witnessed her mother getting divorced way too many times. Mum is planing to marry for the fifth time and...
