I began to read this book at around 2AM, seeing as I had it as an eARC and didn't want to sleep. Word of advice: if you don't want to sleep, pick up this book! I was hypnotized from the very first sentence "I'm on the toilet at the 9:30 Club, and I'm wondering how mermaids … Continue reading The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli [Review]
Review: Remember Me Always wasn't at all like I expected, in a good and bad way. I thought this was going to be solely a romantically epic story, almost like the soul mate ones. The premise held that promise of heartache and enough swoon to curl your toes while also dreading the chaos that losing … Continue reading Remember Me Always by Renee Collins: Blog Tour and Giveaway!
"All the facts in history books couldn’t prepare someone for standing in a place where history was present tense". It's going to be easier for me to just jot down what I loved about this book that try and elaborate an essay so here we go: This book definitely falls on the heavier, darker side … Continue reading The Girl with the Red Balloon by Katherine Locke Review: A New Favorite Series!
I have been blessed to encounter Contemporary Romance books this year that I love, this one being a definite 5 stars at the top. Alex, Approximately was hooking from the first page, especially with the many movie references, as well as quotes at the start of every chapter. The main character, Bailey Rydell aka "Mink" … Continue reading Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett [Review]: A Cinematographic & Romantic Wonder
I don’t consider myself a big fan of summer contemporaries simply because I live on an island where it's practically summer every single day. I always find them cliche and predictable, especially with the whole tourist aspect which I hate. If Birds Fly Back is the complete and total opposite of what I just described. … Continue reading If Birds Fly Back by Carlie Sorosiak ARC Review: A Contemporary Worth Remembering.
My Review: Lucky in Love brings the the trademark Kasie West romance with a new premise: What if you won the lottery? How do you stay true to yourself in the midst of all those new changes? I’ve got to say that I really enjoyed this book. I read it all in one sitting. Maddie’s … Continue reading Blog Tour: Lucky in Love by Kasie West: What’s Luck Have to Do With It? + Giveaway!
I’m a sucker for romance. It’s my go-to genre in music, books, and film when I’m happy, sad, angry, frustrated, nostalgic, etc. The past few months, particularly from late March until the first week of June, the political situation where I live and study has been tense. During this time, especially the last few weeks, … Continue reading I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo [Review] Perfect Adorable Summer Read!
The only other book I have read by Paula Stokes has been Girl Against The Universe, exactly a year ago. It was cute and super mental health positive, whereas This Is How It Happened is much more serious in the topics it tackles, and I think it is a good reflection of the times and … Continue reading This Is How It Happened by Paula Stokes [Release Day Review] Insightful and Important!
Camila's Review: Its hard enough to get me into sci-fi, make it YA and I'll do my best to skip it. So why did I decide to pick up this one? Simply because my friends will not shut up about it (plus the cover is stunning) and I can see why. "...the truth was a … Continue reading Want by Cindy Pon: A New YA Series to Look Out For!
"...that's the funny thing about wishes—only when one comes tru do you realize the full scope of that wish. What you really wanted. The beauty of it. The complexity. The cost." My tbr has been steadily taken over by #ownvoices reads and I honestly can’t complain. When I got approved on Netgalley for this novel … Continue reading How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake [Review]: A Thank You Letter
