• Children Of Blood and Bone By Tomi Adeyemi

    Children of Blood and Bone is a YA debut novel by Tomi Adeyemi. It’s the first book from the Legacy of Orisha trilogy. I discovered this book through the online book community and a lot of them are raving about it. Naturally, I was half-scared to pick it up. Many readers can relate to that feeling when a hyped up book would left us feeling disappointed or confused. We wonder what did we miss? How come they enjoyed it more than we did? Thanks to the gorgeous cover and captivating blurb I put that thought aside. I decided to give this book the benefit of the doubt and I am…

  • If I Stay by Gayle Forman

    *This is a book review people! Not a movie review. I used a still from the movie because someone borrowed my copy of If I Stay. I doubt she has any plans of returning it any time soon. If it’s any consolation, I adore this pic of Chloe and Jamie. Their chemistry was insane in the movie!! When I discovered Gayle Forman’s If I Stay, the plot somehow reminded me of the Korean drama 49 Days which is one of my all-time favorite Korean dramas. Although it was so much more dramatic. The whole scenario of getting stuck-in-a-limbo kind of stories fascinates me. I was curious about how the author…

  • Ask Me by Kimberly Pauley

    The story’s plot intrigued me the moment I read it. It seems really interesting and a bit different from other mystery stories I’ve read before and so I signed up on the blog tour hosted by Pinoy Book Tours a few weeks ago. Ask Me by Kimberly Pauley Publication date: April 8th 2014 Published by: Soho Teen Source: Pinoy Book Tours (Thanks!!) Ask Aria Morse anything, and she must answer with the truth. Yet she rarely understands the cryptic words she‘s compelled to utter. Blessed—or cursed—with the power of an Oracle who cannot decipher her own predictions, she does her best to avoid anyone and everyone. But Aria can no…

  • The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider

    Hello, there! It’s been a long time since I was here. So many things had happened over the past year, which are mostly good things, but no matter, I’m happy to say that I’m back into blogging now and I think it’s only fitting to start off by reviewing the book that reminded me of how much I love talking about books. My first encounter with The Beginning of Everything was December of last year. I was on a local bookstore to finally grab my copy of Anna & the French Kiss (which was on my wishlist since, like, forever). Truthfully, the book title didn’t grab my attention as much…

  • Graceling by Kristin Cashore

    As far as I could remember, I’ve been dying to read Graceling ever since I saw it being reviewed on my favorite book blogs. It received so many raves and high praises which made me all the more excited to get my hands a copy. Having said that, I got a teensy bit worried as well that if I started reading the book, it wouldn’t live up to my expectations. Fortunately, Kristin Cashore proved me that the hype on her book was worth it! As far as I could remember, I’ve been dying to read Graceling ever since I saw it being reviewed on my favorite book blogs. It received…

  • Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver

    I fell for Lauren Oliver after reading her dystopia novel, Delirium. After reading that book, she instantly became one of my favorite authors of all time. And so when I discovered she’s writing a middle-grade fantasy novel, I was beyond thrilled! First of all, I like reading (selective) middle-grade novels. I love to read such books simply because they make me feel young and magical, and that’s exactly how I felt when I was reading Liesl & Po. Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver Published date: October 14, 2011 Published by HarperCollins Liesl lives in a tiny attic bedroom, locked away by her cruel stepmother. Her only friends are the…

  • Review: Dreaming Awake by Gwen Hayes

    Dreaming Awake is the sequel to Gwen Hayes’ Paranormal Romance Falling Under. I’ve read Falling Under last year after falling in love with its captivating cover and then I read the synopsis and it piqued my interest. I kept falling in love with it when I read the story. I liked that kind of feeling where you thought you had everything figured out but then the story changes itself and shock you to the core. That’s the feeling Falling Under gave me when I read it albeit the fact that I’m not really a huge fan of “insta-love”. After I read Falling Under, I couldn’t wait to get my hands…
