Awesome Conclusion

“They can touch me if they like, and maybe it’ll hurt, but my skin won’t kill anyone anymore. Because I’ll never let it get that far. Because I now know how to control it.” I have been in love with this series since the first...

Major Book Hangover

How am I supposed to explain We Were Liars without spoiling anything but still convince you to read it? Maybe it’s best to list the things that appealed to me when I read this. After all, when in doubt, make a list. So why did I...

The Book of Broken Hearts

The Book of Broken Hearts is my first Sarah Ockler book and it definitely didn’t disappoint. I dived into this book thinking that it would somehow focus on its romance aspect but it surprised me that there’s actually moreicing how long was I reading until I finished it. ...

The Elite

I don’t think this will be a formal review. This will be more of a rant, mainly about America. America.. I don’t know if this girl can ever make me totally like her. In the first book, she whined too much. But in this one, her...

Branded

Branded was one of the interesting books I’ve read this year. The use of the Seven Deadly Sins was what first made me want to read it but after a while, it wasn’t that that made me like the book. It was a page-turner and was packed with action that...

Parallel

Even though my instincts usually mess up with my reading experience when I end up guessing the ‘twist’, I still rely on it. I can’t help it. It is sort of my gauge if the book managed to wow me. So, obviously I started reading this book with the usual...

Dear Cassie

Dear Cassie was supposed to be poignant novel that would leave readers this certain feeling. It probably is, but unfortunately I had a hard time connecting with it. Here we get to meet Cassie which is full of angst and seems to be angry with the...

Requiem

After reading Pandemonium with that gut-punching ending, I cannot wait to read this book. But after reading some reviews when this was released, all those unsatisfied comments sort of dampen my excitement. Oliver, once again, amazed me with her impeccable writing style and wonderful prose. She...

The Reece Malcolm List

I love this book! I love the humor and the real emotions underneath it. I love how the author managed to conceal them so it won't be depressing without removing its effect. I love the story and I definitely love the characters. Devan meeting her mother for...

If You Find Me

I never thought I'd feel this way after reading the book. I didn't feel the connection in an instant the moment I started reading the book but as the story progressed, it pulled me towards it. It was heartbreaking, compelling and poignant. There's reality in it no matter how rare...

Dare You To

When I first read the synopsis of this book, I was surprised that Beth isn't with Isaiah. I even though he has another name and that's Ryan. Their relationship in Pushing The Limits already hinted that they'll have a crazy ride together so I was already hoping and wondering how...

Daughter of Smoke and Bone

Wow. I have read a lot of really good reviews for a year about this book and I'm so glad that I finally understood why. The only reason I added this to my tbr-pile in 2011 was because of Karou's blue hair. Seriously, who doesn't love a blue hair that...

Pushing the Limits

Did this book just made me cry at 4 in the morning? Wow, I think it did. A poignant tale about two people with a painful past who's craving for normalcy. And I think McGarry did a great job with this. The only thing that kinda bothered...

Wild Awake

Reading this book felt like I was in a hazy dream. I even listened to Magic Wand’s Aloha Moon album while reading to add to the effect and I tell you, it was effective. I spent time thinking about what to write about this and until now, I honestly don’t...
