I recommend!

This book is definitely not like The Fault in Our Stars nor Six Feet Apart, or any other book about sickness that's sad, lonely, and romantic. This book is a book that is on it's own, and love it for being like that. This book...

for fantasy buffs

I'm not very into reading fantasy (so I might not be the best person to review this). But I was honestly interested in reading this. That cover was really amazing and I really liked it. But the story didn't really land to well in my opinion. ...

you can learn from this

This is one of those books that a reader can learn from. This is the first YA book that I read that talks about being intersex. And I think that's special. We have Kristin, the popular homecoming queen who's actually nice. And I like that...

Impressive book

Powerful words that leave the readers to their imagination

Ronit & Jamil has been a wonderful ride. It actually surprised me that it was written in prose. but then again Romeo and Juliet was written in somewhat the same way because it's a play. in a way, i don't understand why this book has low ratings....

I truly loved this book

I really relate to this book very much. Most especially with Pen. This book was so honest. Many symbolisms but the most profound symbolism is dinosaurs. this is the type of book that you seem to annalize. Maybe it was just me who annalized it but it...

Welcome to the Starfield fandom

This book is truly beautiful

After a year and a few days owning this book, I finally read HIGHLY ILLOGICAL BEHAVIOR. And it was beautiful. I finally decided to read this because it's Pride Month and I haven't read a book with the main character as an LGBT rep. though I read...

if you look through my books here in goodreads, the paranormal genre does not belong here. but this book drew me in as i progress in the story. i've been hearing about EERIE for awhile now and seeing a consistent very good rating, it definitely made me...

This book is stellar

This book is stellar! Truthfully, I came across this book blindly. I don't have a lot of information about this book. Lately, I've been bias about YA Simon & Schuster book because they've been releasing amazing books and I find them the best for me. So basically...

a good intro about being a Filipino Immigrant

Happy Philippine Independence Day! This is the reason why I picked up this book. June 12 is the day of our Independence. And I thought this would be a good way to celebrate: by reading a book by a Fil-Am author about an immigrant girl. ...
