Ruined by Amy Tintera | ARC Review

  It feels like forever since I managed to read a book for myself, but once I got this beauty from Harper Collins I was pretty damn excited to sit down and read away. Even more important, I finally felt like sitting down and writing a review about it after I finished this gem of a fantasy! Ruined is a strong start to a new and what appears to be a VERY promising YA trilogy! Em is a great main character. She doesn’t have magic, and in her kingdom this is seen as a weakness, as ‘useless’. Opposed to what her kingdom thinks, she’s a very capable and strong person. She doesn’t need magic to make her fierce, her strong will and determination do the trick for…

Stacking the Shelves 27/02-2016

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It is a meme to showcase the books that we have bought, borrowed, received for review, or were given as a gift (basically to show off any book that we acquired). As well, I will tell you a bit about the what has been going on this week and what you can expect from me in the upcoming week! This Week’s Book Haul The ever so lovely Dani from Dani Reviews Things gifted me a copy of  Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard, the sequel to Red Queen (a book I immensely enjoyed reading in 2015). I seems the stack of books I need to read keeps growing, but my actual reading slows down every single week. The amount…

The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

The Rest of Us Just Live Here, the copy I got from my Secret Santa this year, GLOWS IN THE DARK. I had it on my desk and woke up in the middle of the night and it took me a while to figure out that it actually was my book that was glowing. It’s the first glow-in-the-dark cover of a book I own, never thought I would say that. Also… Confession: This was my first Patrick Ness book. The Rest of Us Just Live Here is different from any YA book out there The Rest of Us Just Live Here was different from other Young Adult books. There simply is no other way to describe it. I knew it from the very first page, and as…

Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

Queen of Shadows what have you done to me?! I once again waited reading this… I’d preordered it (duh) and when it arrived I read the first chapter, which broke my heart, and didn’t pick it up until 3 months later. I know, stupid silly me. Because this book was brilliant! It was perfect. I didn’t think I could love the characters even more, but I DO. MUST HAVE THE NEXT BOOK, NOW! Wrapping my head around certain plot changes I’ll jump right in, there are a LOT of things happening in Queen of Shadows and I’m going to keep it vague because I don’t want to spoil anything for you. What I do think is quite obvious is that things are changing, in a big way. I…
