• 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…

  • The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

    I remember hearing about The Perks Of Being A Wallflower way back (I don’t remember exactly when) and when I read the book’s synopsis, it didn’t really seemed that special to me. But I couldn’t deny the fact that it still interest me mostly because many people loves this book. And last year, the news about it being adapted into a movie went on and that Logan Lerman and Emma Watson is going to be in it (not to mention Nina Dobrev and Ezra Miller, too) I became ecstatic when I found out. What can I say, I love Emma and Logan. (Who doesn’t, anyway?) Anyway, back to the book, here’s…

  • Tempest by Julie Cross

    Tempest is kind of like a mix of Back To The Future (one of my all-time favorite films) and The Time Machine. Jackson, the protagonist, definitely reminds me of Marty McFly’s humor and laid-back but tough attitude and Dr. Hartdegen’s unyielding love for his girlfriend, which in Jackson’s case, Holly. I was sucked into the story from the very first page! The story, in general, was unpredictable, dynamic and riveting. The combination of Julie Cross’ astonishing imagination and craft in making absorbing action scenes was enough for me to enjoy this book a lot. Furthermore, Julie Cross’ writing style is fresh and so convincing, I find myself wondering if this…

  • Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick

    Silence is the third installment from Becca Fitzpatrick’s sexy, addictive and thrilling Hush, Hush saga. I am a huge fan of Hush, Hush books, they are all well-written, the plot is fast-paced, the mystery and suspense is obsessing and the romance can drive anyone crazy. It was after reading the first book, Hush, Hush that made me decide to make a book blog so Hush, Hush is a big part of my book blog’s making. Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick Publication Date: October 4, 2011 Published by Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing The noise between Patch and Nora is gone. They’ve overcome the secrets riddled in Patch’s dark past…bridged two irreconcilable worlds…faced heart-wrenching…

  • 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! Grounded by Constance Sharper Publication date: September 15, 2011 Published by Constance Sharper Source: From Author for review At last, Avery thought that she had made it back to a normal high school life– except for the death threats on her head and the harpie in her backyard. Trouble never stays far away though, and Mikhail hatches a plan that endangers life as she…
