• Cinder by Marissa Meyer

    I love fairy tales as much as the next girl. They are the kinds of stories I’ve read first when I was a kid, and I love them until now. And so, when I found out that there was a new Cinderella retelling, I got curious and a bit skeptical. The reason is that I’ve only read a few numbers of retellings and some of them aren’t exactly as good as I expected them to be. Another reason is that Sci-Fi wasn’t exactly my cup of tea. It’s not that I don’t like Sci-Fi, but it’s the genre that I hardly reach for (I’m more of a fantasy/adventure kind of…

  • 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…

  • The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

    If you have been reading and following my blog since the start, you’re probably aware now that I am a huge fan of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. It’s seriously one of the best books I’ve read after Harry Potter, I instantly loved it! Naturally, when I found out that Riordan is writing a new series which takes place at Camp Half Blood, I knew need to get a copy of it one way or another. Before I continue with my review, I want to inform everyone that this is a NON-SPOILER FREE REVIEW. I’m sorry, I can’t help it. I am going on an all out…
