I’ve taken the ten out of the title, because there’s one big major reason why I love being a blogger and a reader — and that is the group of friends that I’ve made this way. Let me start […]

ARC Book Review: The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

ARC Book Review: The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski

Book Reviews | February 17, 2014

The Winner’s Curse is easily the most hyped up 2014 release so far, and it’s not hard to see why. Indeed this book is fantastic, and it will appeal to pretty much every young adult reader out there. Although I feel like the hype did raise my expectations too high, and it was impossible for the book to […]

Book Haul #7: In Which #LoveThyself Happened

Uncategorized | February 16, 2014

Errrr, I went a bit overboard. Buuuuuut at the same time I regret nothing. A great stack of these books came in on Valentine’s Day, and I made it into a thing. Valentine’s gifts to myself, a nice meal, a good movie, and a romantic book. It was a wonderful evening, overall 🙂 (See Instagram evidence.) For Review […]

How To Keep Track of Series

How To Keep Track of Series

Uncategorized | February 14, 2014

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for another How To! I put on my spreadsheet-making pants again this week to tackle something I desperately needed an organized system for: book series. I mean, I know right? So many series in the YA world, and it’s so easy to forget about them or just NEVER FINISH THEM AT ALL. […]

Book Review: Jenna & Jonah’s Fauxmance by Emily Franklin and Brendan Halpin

Book Review: Jenna & Jonah’s Fauxmance by Emily Frankl..

Book Reviews | February 13, 2014

As a full disclosure, I picked up this tiny little book at Boekenfestijn, for around €2 or so. It’s not exactly like I had high hopes or something. I thought it would be a light, fluffy contemporary, probably of the guilty pleasure variety. I mean, teen celebrities who have an on-screen and off-screen romance but secretly hate each […]

Top Ten Books That Will Make You Swoon

Top Ten Books That Will Make You Swoon

Uncategorized | February 11, 2014

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Looking up books for this list, I realize that most romances that I love are more of the awwwwwww and flail-worthy types than swoooooon-y types. There is a difference, okay? Swoonful romances I interpret as less “cutesy” and more […]

Book Review: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

Book Review: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

Book Reviews | February 10, 2014

WARNING: This review contains spoilers. I’ve hidden the big ones. Proceed at your own risk. I think The 5th Wave was the most hyped up non-sequel book of 2013. In my opinion, at least, it definitely was. (Well there’s These Broken Stars too, but I think The 5th Wave was bigger.) As I am writing this, my friend […]
