There is something about Young Adult Sci-fi / Dystopian series like Divergent, the Hunger Games, the 5th Wave, that appeal to me more than anything else.
Whisper by Lynette Noni was an unexpected page-turner that kept me awake at nights. What can you not like in a book full of political manipulations, secret governmental facilities, special abilities, and hidden experiments?!

Virginia Shreves is back in this follow up to «The Earth, my Butt and Other Big Round Things».
Q: Is it absolutely necessary to read the first book?
No, I haven’t read it and didn’t feel like I missed anything. Just treat this as a completely new book and you will be fine.
Q: Did it make me want to purchase and read the first book?
Also, no. I had a hard time connecting to any of the characters and only the shortness of the book made me plunge through it till the end. Continue reading “The Universe is Expanding and so am I by Carolyn Mackler |Don’t get fooled by the amazing cover!”
It is the 12th of August as I am writing this and I’ve come to realize that:
(A) the summer is almost over! There is only August left and, while I happen to live a walking distance from the beach, I’ve only gone a couple of times this year and I have to remedy this as soon as possible!
(B) I’ve been far more into fantasy this summer with a comparison to last year when all I practically read were contemporary and literary fiction all day every day. And
(C) Throne of Glass is actually an AMAZING SERIES WITH A LOT OF ACTION, DRAMA & BETRAYALS. Who would have thought that I’d fall in love with Throne of Glass, after absolutely hating the Court of Thorns and Roses?! It’s a mystery for me too.
*The list could go on and on. I love lists. But who doesn’t?

A debut novel by Juliet McDaniel is an absurd presentation of a socialite’s life, Maxine Simmons, in the late 60s – early 70s California – Palm Springs. Satirical, witty and VERY addicting – «Mr. & Mrs. American Pie» is a perfect summer read. Don’t need to look any longer if you are hunting for some books to take with you on summer vacations.

I might have made a mistake to binge read Gillian Flynn books at the beginning of my blogging career. Ever since that point, no thrillers ever came close to twisted and dark characters of Gillian Flynn.
Jar of Hearts had a few graphic moments and gore details, but I’ve predicted the twist way too soon. After that, the book lost a little bit of its appeal and I had to force myself to pick it up again. Continue reading “Jar of Hearts by Jennifer Hillier |Murder + Serial Killer + Secrets don’t stay buried forever!”
As a true and proud bookworm, I am in love with all kind of STATIONARIES. Cute ones, black ones, simple and professional, or fun and colorful – I need them all and I need them now! Before you start accusing me of uncontrollable purchase of pens, pencils, notebooks and sticky notes, let’s clarify that I am actually not a hoarder (Books don’t count. Don’t look at my bookshelves! Don’t do it!).
I love watching YouTube videos about stationaries and DIYs but never actually get around to buy or try things myself. Which is (A) GOOD because it saves me tons of money, and (B) BAD because I rarely try new things. Continue reading “Stationary Book Tag”
When I was little, I constantly asked my parents to buy me more books. I think it was the only thing I ever asked for. My favorite book series back then was something similar to Nancy Drew – crime, mystery solving stories within a large collection of adventures.
When I picked this book up from NetGalley, I didn’t even realize that it was going to have that same adventurous vibe that I used to love in children books.

In this epic continuation to «Nyxia», following the events of the first book, Emmett Atwater and his crew have landed on the planet of Eden. But not under the circumstances they were hoping for. Their instructions were simple – play nice and extract Nyxia in great quantities, something they were trained to do on Genesis 11 spaceship.
Lies, intrigues, secrets, and betrayals continue in this sequel, as the crew tries to figure out their new alliances and set their allegiances. Continue reading “Nyxia Unleashed by Scott Reintgen | 5 Cool Things to use NYXIA for!”
