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

Resilient Book Review

[I received a free advance review copy in exchange for an honest 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

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:

The Butterfly Project Book Review

book-review[I received a free review copy in exchange for an honest review]

In my mind, Mother, May I? had ultimately been about love. But wasn’t love a kind of chaos theory? One small look, one smile or one work could alter the course of a life forever. Becket and I were living proof.

Dammit, I loved this book to pieces. Two broken people, trying to survive life day by day, blaming themselves for things they didn’t have a say in… Finding solace in each other. Continue reading

Sugar & Gold Book Review

book-review[I received a free advance review copy in exchange for an honest review]

This book was pretty intense, to say the least. It’s been a while since I’ve come across a good contemporary with a worthy plot-line. The characters were beautifully woven, and their pasts were wonderfully heartbreaking.
Nikolai’s ability was one I didn’t really find that peculiar. I’ve watched a documentary once, on Discovery Science, I think, about a European woman who has Chromesthesia; she sees certain colors when hearing certain sounds. It’s still very different from Nik’s ability, his ken. But it’s science, so I don’t think what Nikolai has is that creepy/weird.
But it didn’t fail to fascinate me. Continue reading

Faithful Book Review

I was so excited to dig into this book when I first read the synopsis. And I was ecstatic when the publisher approved my request!
I was honestly hooked from the very first chapter; Imogene and Lauren’s friendship was to die for. Actually, every relationship in that town was so beautifully portrayed. Familial love, friendship, and marriage… Continue reading
