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”

In Deep Water by Sam Blake | Not as fast-paced or thrilling as I expected it to be

in deep water

There were years in my reading life when I solely read crime, thrillers, and mysteries. I’ve accumulated quite a collection of books in that particular genre and sometimes the need for something a little bit more mysterious comes knocking on the door, making it impossible to resist.

During one of those whims, I’ve requested «In Deep Water» by Sam Blake on NetGalley. Thank you to NetGalley and to Bonnier Zaffre for a free ARC of this book. Continue reading “In Deep Water by Sam Blake | Not as fast-paced or thrilling as I expected it to be”

Fragments of the Lost by Megan Miranda | A perfect YA thriller for darker evenings!

This was my first book by Megan Miranda, but I will definitely pay much more attention to her books from now.  If you have any recommendations, make sure to leave them in the comments below.

Weycombe by G.M. Malliet | The importance of cohesive fact introduction

I’m not an author and I’m not trying to be one, so it’s very difficult for me to criticise books on the styles they were written in. But, ultimately, I am the audience. I read the blurb, I liked it, I was intrigued by it and decided to dedicate my time to reading a particular novel. And there are often times when the writing style or certain writing quirks don’t work for me as well as they do for others, and I find it my duty to share these moments with you!

«Weycombe» is similar one of those cozy, detective movies set in a small town in a middle of nowhere. The community is so tiny, everyone knows each other and such strong events as murder usually reveals a whole lot more gossip than we expected! Continue reading “Weycombe by G.M. Malliet | The importance of cohesive fact introduction”

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. Therefore, I decided to do something different and insert a Pros / Cons table at the end of my review! Continue reading “The Last Days of Summer by Vanessa Ronan | A handful of contradicting thoughts!”

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! For a book of almost 500 pages, it reads very quickly because it is impossible to take a break as there are still so many mysteries to unravel! Continue reading “Bring Her Home by David Bell |A Breathtaking new thriller!”

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”
