Damn. Damn. Damn. Why didn’t I read Catching Fire sooner? I did. Two years ago. But then I stopped after reading the first 5 chapters (I think) because the pacing was just slow for me. I’m glad that I picked it up again though. I. LOVE. IT. There’s way more...

Just another review with the word ‘phony’ in it… The whole story was nothing like what I expected. Honestly, when I saw the cover, I thought it was going to be about a knight, a prince, or whatever saving a princess because of the horse. Lol,...

While reading this book, I could not think of anything but SADNESS! Come on, you HAVE to pay in order to breathe? You’re basically paying to live! This book was just sad, yet I enjoyed it. In Breathe, we have three protagonists – Alina, Quinn and Bea. It’s written in...

Wow, this book is amazing! Another favorite book of mine from the classics genre. If you ignored to read the summary (like me hehe) then you will think that it’s about animals who are being punished, used as slaves, and pushed-around by humans. Well, there is much more to that....

Convinced by Amy, Elder has taken off the Phydus in Godspeed’s system. This book is about Elder ruling without the drug, a LOT of twist, secrets, and shocking revelations. This book is a drug! Aw man. Beth Revis has done it again. Seriously. I don’t know why...

Yes it’s your typical ya dystopian where a new set of rules exists and world is in chaos. Surprisingly, I enjoyed it. Article 5 is about Ember, a 17 year old, who’s mother was taken by the MM (the soldiers) because she has violated an article. Which article you ask?...

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn, David Levithan

Seriously, someone should make this into a movie. I know most of you have read this book and I’m a little bit late *wink* but whatever I’m just glad I got it for free on Netgalley! Lol. Ever since I found this book on Goodreads, I’ve been wanting to read...

Scarlette by Davonna Juroe

Scarlette is such a great retelling of the Grimm and Perrault’s Little Red Riding Hood. It is a fun book to read especially during the time of winter. The story is set in France, and it starts out with a spooky and creepy (in a good way) scene with Scarlette...
