A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas | Was it too similar to «Throne of Glass»?

I am glad to announce that I finally read the first book of the new (relatively new) Sarah J. Maas series! This was my top priority of April considering that the third book in the series, «A Court of Wings and Ruin», is coming out early in May. I had to see for myself what everyone was raving about and so I did! Continue reading “A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas | Was it too similar to «Throne of Glass»?”

The Leavers by Lisa Ko | A Tragic Story of Deming Guo or a New Life of Daniel Wilkinson?

This was an incredible start to the month of May! I loved this book so much!

It is a captivating life story of Deming Guo and his mother’s immigration into the United States of America. The story telling is not linear, we jump back and forth between characters and between different time periods.

We see the story from Daniel Wilkinson’s point of view, of him struggling to understand what he wants from life, who he wants to be, and then we jump back in time when Daniel was still Deming Guo, living in a poor part of New York with his mom, her boyfriend, his sister and nephew in the tiniest apartment.

The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr |An unbelievable adventure through memories or the tricks of a cruel mind?

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!

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”

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare | A gripping monster of a book

Let me tell you one thing – I read this book in one day! (I know I might be crazy, but I couldn’t stop reading… I just couldn’t, okay?)

It all started on an early Saturday morning (more precisely at 7 am, because I am a weirdo and even during the weekends I wake up super early), when I decided to have a relaxing day, i.e. do nothing else but reading. Continue reading “Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare | A gripping monster of a book”
