Sugar & Gold 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

Ah, don’t look so surprised. Nadwa’s doing a wrap up!

Yes, this month, I’ve decided to do a wrap up. Since a lot of stuff happened in May, and it honestly feels like it’s time. I think I made a sloppy wrap-up-post at some point during my wretched amateur blogging times, but this one’s going to be a well-written one -hopefully.  Continue reading

My Despicable DNF List

My Despicable DNF List

Adding a book to the shameful DNF section is always my absolute final escape. I hate that list, and although it only constitutes of 6 books for now, it still feels like a burden that I’ll always be carrying with me. So here’s a list of books that, unfortunately made it to that wretched list, and earned the dishonorable DNF badge. Continue reading

YA Book Bloggers Goodreads Group

YA Book BloggersHey guys!

I’ve been thinking for a while now about how starting discussions or getting a group of readers together to fangirl over a certain book via a WordPress blog post is almost impossible to do. And if it were possible, it would be a pain in the ass, since WordPress is exactly just that; a pain in the friggin ass (it hasn’t been good to me lately…).

Anyways, due to that fact and to many other factors, I decided to create a Goodreads group, strictly for YA Book Bloggers, since we totally deserve it. I invited the bloggers that I’m already friending on Goodreads, but I’d love for everyone who’s interested to go ahead and check it out here, and hopefully, join.

We’ll have a Book(s) Of The Month to read and discuss, and do buddy reads and all that.

I have been a little hesitant since I’m currently studying for my finals that are going to be in June. But I was super thrilled when Mandy @bookprincessreviews encouraged me to create the group, and she volunteered to help me out since we’re both beginners in the Goodreads Group-Moderating world.

So if anyone’s interested in being a group moderator, too, and if you feel like you’re up to it, please let me know, we’ll discuss everything and we’ll see how it works out afterwards.

Happy reading!
