All the Little Lights by Jamie McGuire | Did I enjoy more the love story or the creepy settings? Or maybe THE twist?
Who would have thought that the popular hit Titanium would sound so amazing in music box version? I surely didn’t. But now I am completely in love with the tune. And I have to agree that the Spotify list for All the Little Lights that I found on Jamie McGuire’s website is spot on! Listening to it as I am writing this review, brings back all the feelings.
Make sure to turn this playlist on and get to know Elliott Youngblood and Catherine Calhoun.

This Is Not a Love Letter by Kim Purcell | A Suspenseful love story with wide spectrum of important topics
«In your neat handwriting, you wrote that I reminded you of sunshine and sunflowers, which is kind of funny because sunflowers are so stinky that stink bugs love them. I didn’t keep that love letter, and I’m sorry. It wasn’t that they didn’t mean anything, but I’m not sentimental like that.»
Surprisingly, «This is not a Love Letter» by Kim Purcell didn’t show up very often on the social media. In fact, not a single bookstagram account that I follow featured this on their page at any point during January or beginning of February. Which I found rather starnge considering that (A) this book has a gorgeous cover, (B) it’s a YA contemporary that is incredibly popular and (C) it’s incredibly mysterious and emotional!

Gray Wolf Island by Tracey Neithercott | A very controversial subject. Was it appropriate for YA audience?
Sometimes it feels like authors have gone too far. I believe that YA is separated from Adult for a reason, not just because the characters fall into a certain age category but also because there are certain issues, subjects and problems that can be brought up in Adult literature and need to be carefully presented, if at all, in YA.
This one of those books. Continue reading “Gray Wolf Island by Tracey Neithercott | A very controversial subject. Was it appropriate for YA audience?”

Abigale Hall by Lauren A. Forry | Was it a bad idea to read it at night?
Surprisingly this book had already been published, about a year ago, by a different publisher, but this edition was publsihed very recently – on 11th of April!
This is actually my first book by Lauren A. Forry and first “scary psychological thriller” in quite a long time. I read thrillers ALL THE TIME but they are usually not “horror scary”, more like “mystery scary”. Continue reading “Abigale Hall by Lauren A. Forry | Was it a bad idea to read it at night?”
