Elizabeth Scott always delivers

Wow. I am really impressed. After seeing that horrible (too)low rating I didn't expect anything but this story surprised me,in a good way. This is not the first novel I've read by Elizabeth Scott so I knew what is coming,or at least I though I did....

Read this book, now!

First of all let me say one thing- I liked Saving June but, this novel... Speechless was so much better. I don’t usually read abuse books. It doesn’t matter if it’s about physical or verbal abuse. I am not comfortable with this subject because almost in all cases the victim...

Entangled will play with your mind

What to say about this book and not to reveal too much? Well, it certainly will leave an impact on readers. Either you love it, like it, or dislike it. You will want to know what happened to Grace and how did she ended up trapped in a white room?...

Breathtakingly beautiful prose

First of all, I was not a fan of this particular Disney story. Sure, I did see the movie and the cartoon but somehow I never really connected with the story until now. Some would say it's a story about love but I think the most important...

Don't miss this debut novel!

Hamlet's my favorite Shakespeare tragedy. His other work combined together can't top this masterpiece. So when I first saw someone was publishing a retelling I just had to have it. Not everyone has the talent and the guts to try out to integrate Shakespeare into their work. Dot Hutchison did...

The Truth About You & Me

Before I start discussing The Truth About You and Me I need to point out something. I wasn't familiar with the fact Amanda Grace is a pen name for Mandy Hubbard! :O I didn't see this one coming till I read about the author in the end of the book....

Heartwarming Tale of Two Brothers

I knew I didn't made a mistake when I bought this book. It has this beautiful cover (one of my favorites), the blurb screams pain and devotion and it got an advance praise from Gayle Forman, Sara Zarr and A.S. King. This is a story about brothers,...

Heartbreaking and Beautiful

There are book that make you laugh at loud, in love or simply be thankful for opening your eyes every morning even if your life is far from being perfect. I would rather read a dark and gripping story because they truly make me feel alive. When you’re happy you...

Jennifer Donnelly needs to write more and faster!

Revolution is one of those rare books that both adults and teens can read and still see how wonderful it is. I usually have a hunch when it comes to buying books published before 2011 and almost always get it right. Back then, the YA community was...

Oh, my freaking God! People! People! This book! Oh, this book. I have no words. How can I persuade you to read this book? How? How, when I have no words. It’s going to be on my 2013 top 10 reads for sure. And let’s not forget about all-time favorite...

You can never go wrong with a S.Ockler book

Love, love, love this book! It was unputdownable from the first page, up to the last. Sarah Ockler is one of those YA contemporary authors who actually writes books with normal characters mostly dealing with ordinary family problems. They are just like us and that's the reason it's so easy...

Perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen

Last year, when Unbreak My Heart came out I didn't want to read it. I can't remember why. I just didn't. but a couple of days ago I was browsing Goodreads and stumbled upon this book I decided to try it out because I was craving a story about redemption...

Fun and Quirky Summer Read

I love this book so much. After reading a bunch of depressing books it was time to read something uplifting and The Summer I Became a Nerd was a perfect escape. It was funny. It was cute. I had a great leading character, interesting dialogs, a hot nerdy guy...
