All the Little Lights by Jamie McGuire | Did I enjoy more the love story or the creepy settings? Or maybe THE twist?

all the little lights_review_2

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

this is not a love letter

«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!   Continue reading “This Is Not a Love Letter by Kim Purcell | A Suspenseful love story with wide spectrum of important topics”

Carry Me Home by Jessica Therrien | A series of dramatic events

San José, gangs, guns, fighting… In the beginning I was slightly hesitant to start reading, as I already was expecting to dislike it. BUT! HOW WRONG WAS I?! It was an absolutely amazing book and I haven’t been able to stop talking about it since I picked it up!!

Jessica Therrien created the most gripping, realistically unrealistic story that makes your jaw drop in awe! The events that took place within this quite short novel were very INTENSE, definitely not for the light-hearted. Continue reading “Carry Me Home by Jessica Therrien | A series of dramatic events”

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell |Where I didn’t like Eleanor… Park was alright though!

Rainbow Rowell’s books will always hold a very special place in my heart.  2016 was the year of everything happening at once (good and bad) and one of the greatest things I’ve done last year was starting my blog and devouring «Fangirl» in one sitting, and I have been obsessed with her novels ever since.

After reading three of her contemporary novels, I was expecting «Eleanor and Park» to be just as warm and lighthearted. Oh, how wrong was I! Continue reading “Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell |Where I didn’t like Eleanor… Park was alright though!”

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell | A parody on fantasy?

It finally happened! After having it on my TBR for almost 7 months, in April I have read «Carry On». I love Rainbow Rowell and always will, but I was a little apprehensive to read her fantasy novel, and it’s for a good reason.

If you didn’t know, «Carry On» was a popular fantasy series first mentioned in «Fangirl» where Cate, the main character, was writing fanfiction for. Continue reading “Carry On by Rainbow Rowell | A parody on fantasy?”

My most anticipated releases | July 2017

It seems that even Publishers are taking some time off in July, because compared to the previous months, this one will be the quietest of them all!

Or maybe I am just waiting for more Fantasy / Dystopian / Sci Fi books while summer is all about contemporary? I am not sure! What I am sure about, is that there are only 3 books that I would like to get your attention to. Continue reading “My most anticipated releases | July 2017”

Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley | A beautifully written novel about love and loss

This is probably one of the most beautiful contemporary books I’ve ever read. And if this is not enough to make you instantly pick up this book, I intend to praise it for another page or two – no matter how long it takes for me to convince you that THIS IS THE BEST BOOK EVER AND YOU NEED TO READ IT! (Did it work???) Continue reading “Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley | A beautifully written novel about love and loss”
