The Last Days of Summer by Vanessa Ronan | A handful of contradicting thoughts!

Recently, it has been very difficult for me to rate several books. As it hasn’t been just one one occasion, it got me thinking – is there a problem with the books I pick up or with me?

For almost a year now I’ve been meaning to refine/define my rating system. It would help me out during these inner struggles and would also provide more information for you, guys, on what a 3-star rating actually means to me. But everytime I sit down to think about my ratings and what they mean to me, there are so many factors usually involved that it is hard to explain in a few words.

Not so long ago, more precisely during the month of my blog anniversary, I rambled about my love for blogging. You can check the post here «Why do I love being a book blogger?» (Shameless Self Promotion 101).

And today I’ve decided to continue this rambling series and talk a little bit about my love for something else. Continue reading “Why do I love reading ARCs?”

Bring Her Home by David Bell |A Breathtaking new thriller!

This is my first experience reading a David Bell book and, honestly, I enjoyed it!

All the Good Things by Clare Fisher | An inspiring yet heartbreaking, character driven novel that will make you feel happy and sad at the same time

There is nothing better than a book that makes you fall in love with it from the very first pages. When the sentences flow so well together that you are instantly teleported to this new world. When the characters become so dear to your heart that you laugh, cry with them and for them until the very end of the book. When your heart is filled to the brim that after finishing the book you need some off time to nurse this feeling for a little longer.

Not many authors get lucky with their cover art, but this one is definitely one of the best ones out there (Yes, I know! Nothing can compare to «The Sun is Also a Star» by Nicola Yoon. We all agree on this one). Continue reading “Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill |A new series to add to our ‘follow’ list?”
