• Grounded by Constance Sharper

    Grounded is the second installment from Constance Sharper’s exhilarating Airborne Saga. I really enjoyed the first book, Airborne, and left me wanting for more so I was really looking forward into reading Grounded. I had high expectations on this one because Airborne was really amazing. And Grounded did not disappoint!

  • The Curse Girl by Kate Ellison

    The Curse Girl is a delightful retelling of the classic fairytale The Beauty & the Beast. Along with its promising premise, it was the other reason why I wanted to review this story (I love The Beauty & the Beast!). I had a feeling that I’m going to enjoy it and I definitely did! One of the things why I genuinely enjoyed The Curse Girl is because it has its own distinctive story despite being a retelling. Author, Kate Ellison, brilliantly spin her own unique twist and dash of romance and mystery while keeping the main theme of the fairy tale alive.

  • The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton

    The Faerie Ring will transport its readers to the Victorian England where the shadows of those unseen are scattered everywhere. I love Victorian England, every time I see or hear it, the first thing that will pop into my mind is magic. This is my most favorite aspect of the story, the world building was so vivid and compelling and with Hamilton’s words, I painted the Victorian London and the slums to where Tiki and her friends are living inside my head almost perfectly. It’s so easy to lose yourself in The Faerie Ring because of its rich setting. To put it simply, Hamilton’s story-telling is simply full of life,…

  • Remembrance by Michelle Madow

    The first thing that I noticed on Remembrance was the stunning and gorgeous cover. And then I found out that the story was inspired by Taylor Swift hit song “Love Story” (which I really love) that made my interest leveled up! I was also intrigued by the plot because I personally love stories with ‘reincarnation’ themes. So I asked for a review copy from the author, Michelle Madow, and she happily provided one for me. Thanks, Michelle!

  • Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

    I remember seeing Hex Hall for the first time on Goodreads and falling in love with its plot. My excitement heightened even more after reading LOTS of positive reviews about it and I realized that I NEED to read it! I have probably said this too many times but I just love stories with witches or wizards themes. I was really fascinated with them and the story of Sophie Mercer is definitely one of my favorites! Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins Published by: Disney Hyperion Publication date: March 2, 2011 Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It’s gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has…
