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!

It is that time of the month to check the list of all new releases and pick the ones I am absolutely dying to read right away!

The reading slump is officially over (as well as my Instagram slump!). I am so happy to be reading at my usual speed again and taking beautiful pictures of everything and anything bookish!
There is a very special person who always believes in me, no matter what I do or what phase I go through. Thank you very much for always being there for me! Continue reading “April Wrap Up | 2017”
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:
- Don’t read too much about the book or author before reading it;
- Don’t read any reviews before writing down my own thoughts;
- Don’t hurry into rating the book you are not sure about; and
- 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.

What seemed like an interesting, “find yourself” sort of novel, turned out to be an absolute disappointment.
Unfortunately, the month of October was full of downfalls when it came to reading. Yes, some of the books were quite interesting but none of them became my new favourite. (*insert a sad smiley here*). Continue reading “How to Be Somone Else by Rachel Den | A “Find Yourself” or a Cringy New Adult Novel?”
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??).
