Summer Book

Summer camp is fun for those who absolutely love outdoors. Even though there are some people who hate outdoor activity, they can learn to love it. Harper McCallister, who is an epic fashionista and lover of manicures (and makeup and clothes and shoes and bedazzled things), is definitely hating on...

A Princess and Magic

YA Fantasy, THE STORYSPINNER is told from many POVs and perspectives. Each one is different from one another and provide a different view of the story. Impressively, Becky Wallace doesn't give readers a chance to mistaken characters for another, though it is easy to forget which characters have their own...

Heir To A Lot of Things

THE SELECTION, THE ELITE, and THE ONE are the prequels of THE HEIR. Out of the three books, it is THE SELECTION that is my favorite. However, after reading THE HEIR, I admit that it is my brand new favorite of the series. What can I say? Kiera Cass gets...

Reading EXQUISITE CAPTIVE is like watching a really good and frightening horror movie. You scream at the naive girl to not do this, to not do that. Don't hide in the closet, don't hide in the basement, don't trust him, don't follow the sounds. Don't, don't, don't, don't! The villain...

Powerless and Old

Wow, I can't believe POISON STUDY has been released so long ago. Almost a decade ago, in fact. (Specifically, October 2015.) In the world of SHADOW STUDY, the story follows Valek and Yelena with old and new characters. It has been many years since the events of POISON STUDY. Still,...

Beauty and A Beast

A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES is nothing I expected to be. Originally, I expected it to be a great fairy tale retelling with a Katniss-like heroine. That is the expectation. What this book is, it goes beyond my expectations. It is legendary, and Sarah J. Maas is the queen...

Love Triangle... With A Twist

99 DAYS appear to be a standalone novel and is written by Katie Cotugno. Interestingly, each chapter in this book is of a single day. One chapter for one day. Some are short, some are long, some are in between. Some are great days, some are of sorrowful days. But...
