The Elite by Kiera Cass | Book Review

I’m just gonna say this first: WOMAN! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU! PICK MAXON ALREADY! Now we’ve gotten this out of the way I can continue with the actual review. This book had me on an emotional roller-coaster ride (as if the sentence above isn’t proof enough of that). The Elite was mostly what I thought is was going to be: romantic, exciting, but I think most of all conflicting and confusing. I still think the entire Selection itself is kind of ridiculous. I mean girls competing for a guy’s heart? That’s a bit sick… You shouldn’t have to compete with other girls for a guys heart. I mean, in the Elite there are six girls left and Maxon does god knows what with those girls…

Don’t touch my books

Okay, I’m totally outraged here. A non reader is probably gonna think: What the hell is that girl on! But all of you fellow book lovers will totally get what I mean.

The Paris Wife by Paula McLain | Book Review

What happened at the end pissed me off good actually, but I guess that’s just the inner feminist in me. I’m probably not making any sense, but I’m getting there. Okay so first of all, the reason I picked up this book was because in this book Hadley is given a voice. Giving somebody like Hadley a voice is something that requires a certain amount of bravery, especially because Hemmingway is such a giant in American Literature. She not only gave her…

The Selection by Kiera Cass | Book review

To tell you the truth, I usually don’t go for books like The Selection, the whole princess thing going on didn’t really appeal to me. So imagine my surprise when my best friend gave me this book for my birthday. I dare say she knows me well, so I started reading it. Imagine my even bigger surprise when I fell in love with this book. First of all, the cover is absolutely beautiful. No doubt about that. It’s all pretty and it was the first thing that got my attention. Cause a book with a cover like that has some expectations to live up to (don’t worry it totally did!). The thing that attracted me most was the story itself. I’m a big fan of…
