The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr |An unbelievable adventure through memories or the tricks of a cruel mind?

I tend to rate the books I read right after I finish them, the memories are vivid, my heart is pounding and I probably just wiped the remaining tears from my cheeks – there is no better moment to decide how much I loved the book.

However, from time to time, after a couple of days, weeks or even months, I go back and change the rating after reflecting on it for a while.

The same happened to this book, I gave it full 5 stars after reading it in one sitting. After few days of constantly thinking: “Was it really that flawless?” I had to change it to 4 stars, and share my thoughts with all of you!

The Whole Thing Together by Ann Brashares | An exquisite web of complicated family relationships

Where do I even begin?

There are certain rules I make myself follow when it comes to ARCs that I receive for a review, or any other books in general:

  1. Don’t read too much about the book or author before reading it;
  2. Don’t read any reviews before writing down my own thoughts;
  3. Don’t hurry into rating the book you are not sure about; and
  4. It is okay to change your rating few days after when all the thoughts and feelings had time to sink in.

I was particularly excited about this novel, written by the famous Ann Brashares, author of the well-renowned «The Sisterhood of Travelling Pants». I must admit that I’ve never read the book, but I watched and loved all of the movies, starring my beloved Blake Lively and Alexis Bledel.

The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon | Was it Meant to Be?

I am saying it here and now! THIS BOOK IS BY FAR ONE OF THE BEST I’VE EVER READ! OMG! (the excitement is real). I cried and I smiled, then I cried some more. By the end of the book, there were tears on my cheek, my nose was runny, eyes red and I wore silliest smile on my face (Why do you do this to me, Nicola Yoon??).

Review: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

Attachments

Book: Attachments

Author: Rainbow Rowell

Publisher: Chá das Cinco (Portugal)

Rating: ★★★★★ / 5

***
Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It’s company policy.) But they can’t quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.
Meanwhile, Lincoln O’Neill can’t believe this is his job now- reading other people’s e-mail. When he applied to be “internet security officer,” he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers- not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.
When Lincoln comes across Beth’s and Jennifer’s messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can’t help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories.

Disclaimer: «As it was impossible to contain all of my emotions, and after telling all my close friends about this book to spread the word, and after crying about my life being over and impossibility of living without Rainbow Rowell books, I decided to share this with you and… completely avoided the “actual review” part…»
There is something about Rainbow Rowell books that keep me reading until the story is over, not able to do anything else, not even when you have huge essays to write and papers to finish and the deadlines are approaching very quickly!

Just to put it out there right away, I am officially in love with Rainbow Rowell! Fangirl was first book of hers that I’ve read and it was brilliant!
Breath-taking!
Fascinating!
Inspirational!
(I can keep going until there will be no more adjectives to express my feelings!)

I read it in one breath because of how captivating, interesting and REAL it was. I was so upset when the book was over and now I am just hankering for more. More Cath, more fan fiction, more Rainbow Rowell. Believe me that her other books are now on top of my TBR list!
