I like werewolves, that’s why I was TeamJacob and TeamAlcide all the way! Well, I picked up Shiver, ready to get my mind blown. Through all of the book, I had this feeling that…

Review: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

I think I’m the last person on this planet to read this series. Finally did it and loved it! In this dystopian world, love is considered a disease. Love weakens people’s senses, it drives them mad (look, what happened to Romeo and Juliette because of love). In order to protect its people, the government invents…

Review: The Jewel by Amy Ewing

  I did not expect to like this book at all since it sounded like million other YA novels I have read before. Like a mishmash of the Hunger Games with the Selection and The Red Queen. The idea of poor people getting pregnant for Royals sounded bizarre to me. However, it was actually a…

Review: Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare

“Everyone is afraid of something. We fear things because we value them. We fear losing people because we love them. We fear dying because we value being alive. Don’t wish you didn’t fear anything. All that would mean is that you didn’t feel anything.” It was an amazing sequel! The drama of Lady Midnight went…

Time-machine to the 60’s

The late 50’s and the 60’s are my favorite time era. It identifies with bright colors of the dresses, tailored suits, big hair, bright lipsticks and fun music! I’m not saying of course that it was a perfect time, like every time period in history it had it’s up and downs whether in politics or…

Would You Rather Book Tag

  1. Read only trilogies or stand-alones? Definitely trilogies! I usually cannot get enough of the books I like and always want more of the characters and the world was created.
