The second I finished this book, I just wanted to start it all over again. And if there wasn’t a huge pile of TBR constantly poking me and reminding me of its very well noted presence, I would’ve done just that. There’s something about the writing style that just grabbed me. It was so easy and whimsical and hilarious, that it made me want to read every other book written by this author. Continue reading

High School Is Officially Over! // My Bookish Summer Plans

My Bookish Summer Plans

Hey guys!!

I finished my official exams yesterday, and got to spend the rest of the day with my best friend. It’s a day we’ve been talking and dreaming about for literally 9 months. So with that being said, high school is officially over; and it feels incredible and surreal and scary all at once. But I’ve got a long summer ahead, so there’s that. I’ve got everything planned, and I’m so excited to just start spending my days reading and watching series without a care in the world,  if only for a couple of months before uni starts and shit gets real.  Continue reading

Resilient Book Review

I was so excited to dive into this book. There were some pretty hilarious scenes. That scene in the car? When Tank and Nicole were taunting and teasing each other was like, the cutest thing ever. I’d say the book started off at the light side and then started becoming a little intense.
I loved the bad boy attitude with Tank. He’s a biker, could he be more badass than that?
What I didn’t find satisfying enough is the characters’ backgrounds. We didn’t get to actually meet Austin, for example. And I think there are things that were left unsettled at the end. Continue reading

I’m sobbing.
I’M DOWNRIGHT SOBBING THIS WAS SO GOOD.
Not the cute kind of sobbing with a couple of tears running down my face. Nope, none of that.
It’s the ugly kind. The one where you get under-eye bags for days afterwards.

I didn’t realize how much I’ve missed YA contemporaries until now. Because I honestly gave up on them after Jandy Nelson’s books, I’ll Give You The Sun and The Sky Is Everywhere, because every book I read afterwards just didn’t come close to their perfection. But then this one was like a mashup of these two, only it was way more exotic and beautiful. Continue reading

Scot On The Run Book Review

[I received a free advance review copy in exchange for an honest review]
This book is so good I want to cry. I honestly don’t know where to start; I loved the pace, not too slow, not too fast. Just fast enough to make you want to stay up all night reading it, and slow enough to make you want to cherish the overly swoon-worthy scenes between Ian and Bella. Continue reading

Three Weeks With A Princess Book Review

[I received a free advance review copy in exchange for an honest review]
My first ever historical fiction book, and I’d say it went very well!!
Although I don’t have previous books to compare it to, I actually found that this book makes me want to read more books from this genre. Regency, London, plays, dancing… It was all very overwhelming, and extremely fascinating, to say the least. Though I’d say that Lia was a little naive at times… Continue reading

My Approved NetGalley Requests (TBR)

My Approved NetGalley TBR (1)
Hey guys!
So over the weekend, I went really insane and requested about 10 titles from NetGalley. I’m usually used to rejections; I live in Lebanon and it’s really hard to find a publisher that approves reviewers living outside the US, Canada, Australia, or Europe. But I hit the request button anyway. I was a little pissed off, because of the out-of-region thingie, and I definitely did not expect my phone to go into berserk-mode on Monday and show me this:
