This is not a happy review, you guys. Not at all.

When you’ve been anticipating a book for months, when you’ve been chanting the countdown to its release, hell, when you’ve pre-ordered it a lifetime ago, you have certain expectations from the book. And seriously, people. Look at the cover. The synopsis. A brutal YA with a roman-esque setting, with everything...

Dark and Intense and Real

Tiny Pretty Things was everything it promised it would be—dark, intense, dramatic. And, it was all the things I didn’t expect it to be—diverse, real, scary. When a book promises me a mix of Pretty Little Liars and Black Swan, obviously I’m going to finish the book in a single...

REASONS TO READ FAKING PERFECT

Tyler Flynn is fantastic. Forgive me for starting this “review” with Tyler Flynn, but bear with me for a moment here. This guy, Tyler Flynn, was seduced by Lexi Shaw for one and only one reason—to warm her bed. And I had absolutely no qualms about that, considering the sex...

Watery smiles and Sad tears galore.

One thing to know before you read Extraordinary Means: it’s not at all like TFIOS. Obviously, if a YA book is going to have sick teens, dying teens, and a love story that’s been doomed from the start, we’re going to compare it to John Green’s masterpiece. But Extraordinary Means...

Ever since I’ve read Outlander, time travel is slowly turning out to be my favourite type of concept to read. It’s mysterious and imaginative and if well done, it has the capacity to be a complete literary success. And The Edge of Forever has both time travel...
