Sci-fi + fantasy | YA | General + book-by-book reviews | This was a wild ride. Both reading the series and writing the reviews.
YA | Contemporary | How to sum up this story in a few words. I'll go with "A disastrous read with an ending that lightly makes up for it."
YA | LGBT + contemporary | Quick introduction to the first book we're reading at the Just Book It Book Club. My expectations? Well-
Historical fiction (1920s) | YA | This is a cute book, but it didn't strike me as thaaat special. It was mostly fluff with good characters but not an otherworldly story. Kudos to the last two chapters, though.
YA | LGBT + contemporary | Quick introduction to this book that I have been wanting to read since I was three years old and whose movie adaptation I've LOVED.
Wise people always say that the best approach to finish things faster is to be organized in handling them. That sounds like the best way to tackle a bookworm's too-short-life-span problem! Here is the list of books I must read this month. If, by any chance, I happen to read more... Who's ever said no to one (or five) extra sweets?
Historical fiction | Do you know that feeling when your mouth is dry so you get a glass of fresh water and it's just wonderful and healing and- heaven? Speak Easy, Speak Love is the literary version of it.
YA | Dystopia | Reading Legend again was like coming back home after years of looking for a place where I'd feel fully comfortable. Of course, sometimes I have found those, but... The home home makes your stomach tingle with some distinct warmth. Marie Lu built an incredibly realistic world and a story that catches you and never lets you go.
YA | Contemporary | Thriller | I saw a comment on Goodreads that said that 'Follow Me Back' reads too much like a fanfiction piece and... yeah. All in all, I feel a little sorry for not liking it. I wish I could have, because the idea is appealing and it's easy to feel the author's love for her story (I relate), but it was just too hard to see past the eye-roll-worthy moments.
