    The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

    Title: The Iron King Author: Julie Kagawa Pages: 363 Rating: I’m doing this entry a little different. Not gonna make a summary, remembering all the details and trying to concise it (without giving out too much of the story) takes a hell out of me (or just loosening the not so tight screw of my brains, too much for a small brainer like me). I haven’t been so excited like this after Soul Screamers but The Iron Fey series is—

    Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

    Title: Paranormalcy Author: Kiersten White Pages: 335 Rating: Paranormalcy is ‘bleeping good’ (it’s an inside joke, you need to ‘bleeping’ read it to get what I meant with the word bleep, haha). It’s really funny. And unlike Mortal Instrument, I wasn’t intimated nor confused with a lot of paranormal creatures literally roaming in this book. I don’t know what knack of magic Kiersten White did, but it sure did work for me. Evie works for ICPA (International Paranormal Containment Agency).—

    The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller

    Title: The Eternal Ones Author: Kirsten Miller Pages: 416 Rating: I don’t know what to say exactly about this book but to put it simply, I like it. It’s quite entertaining. The ouroboros symbol is what initially drawn me to read the book. A symbol I’m quite familiar thanks to Fullmetal Alchemist. The story revolves around Have Moore, a sixteen year old girl living in a small town in Tennessee. When she was young, she dreamed of a guy named—

    Matched by Ally Condie

    Title: Matched Author: Ally Condie Pages: 366 Rating: Finally I read it, it’s been in my TBR list for a while but was reluctant to read it. I’m not a big fan of dystopian era but after I read The Hunger Games, it totally changed my perspective with these kind of books. But after a few chapters in, I have this feeling that I will enjoy reading it till the end, and I see myself giving this book a shiny—

    Entice by Carrie Jones

    Title: Entice Author: Carrie Jones Pages: 264 Rating: I’ve been counting the days for its release, and I’m so hyped to actually read the book. Everything was good, ok that was an understatement, everything is just awesome. Carrie Jones didn’t fail me (again), I love every aspect of this book, once I started reading it, I couldn’t let go. I’ve been snooping around goodreads for spoilers (excitement gets the better of me, I cave in) and I find out it—

    Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow

    Title: Strange Angels Author: Lili St. Crow Pages: 293 Rating: I don’t think my knowledge with the English language is enough to fully grasp whatever message this book have (or whatever the author wants me to think). There’s nothing wrong with picturesque and eloquence, and definitely nothing wrong using figure of speech. Using it too much, now that’s a problem. Strange Angels is strange, literally. I admit that what attracts me the most is the appearance of two sworn enemies—

    My Blood Approves (series) by Amanda Hocking

    Title: My Blood Approves (Book 1), Fate (Book 2), Flutter (Book 3), Wisdom (Book 4) Author: Amanda Hocking Pages: n/a Rating: There’s something toxic with this book; something on the verge annoyance and entertaining. I read the four books in an astounding 2 days and yes, I can believe it either. With the help of unhealthy amount of caffeine and lack of sleep, resulting in finishing it in a very fast pace. And no, it wasn’t addicting in any sort,—

    The Broken Lake by Shelena Shorts

    Title: The Broken Lake Author: Shelena Shorts Pages: 304 Rating: This is probably the (bad) habit of the author; torment us readers with anticipation. Yes, cut the book in the most exciting part. I was really well stunned (and a bit mad) that the first book ended in middle of the cliffhanger, good thing the second book was already out. Now the sad news is that I have no idea (ok, I have a guess) when the third will come—

    The Pace by Shelena Shorts

    Title: The Pace Author: Shelena Shorts Pages: 302 Rating: Ok, first I didn’t like the cover. Frankly, it’s not pretty. But I was curious when I read the summary that the guy was not immortal yet he doesn’t aged. Then I give it a try and maybe people are right, don’t judge the book by its cover will redeem it’s lack of elegant book cover. The hourglass is nice but not really nice enough for me to think it was…well…—

    13 to Life by Shannon Delany

    Title: 13 to Life Author: Shannon Delany Pages: 308 Rating: I did mentioned before that werewolves isn’t my comfort zone (actually, human shifting to animals in general) but here I go again reading another werewolves theme book. But there’s something new (ok, not quite new) with this book that got me really fascinated – it has something to do with mafia. And While my mafia background isn’t exactly The Godfather level (but a teenager shot by with dying will bullet,—

    Shrinking Violet by Danielle Joseph

    Title: Shrinking Violet Author: Danielle Joseph Pages: 320 Rating: It’s been in my TBR list for a while and I’ve been putting in on a halt because I felt that it might end up not meeting my likings. So after I read it, it wasn’t bad but I feel there could be more, there’s a little (just really minuscule) dissatisfaction in the execution of story but over all it was… good (really good). The story is about Teresa Adams (or—

    Devoured by Amanda Marrone

    Title: Devoured Author: Amanda Marrone Pages: 304 Rating: I decided to try a YA supernatural book that isn’t part of a series. Angel Star and the Hollow series are quite intense (but very entertaining). I wanted to try Uninvited first but I just see myself attracted more with Devoured. I haven’t read any vampire book aside from the Twilight series. And there are like thousand of vampires books out there and Uninvited is one of them (I don’t know why—

    Trust Me by Rachel Hawthorne

    Title: First Kisses 1: Trust Me Author: Rachel Hawthorne Pages: 208 Rating: I decided to read another Rachel Hawthorne book. I think it’s a part of a series (because the fact it is numbered) but I’m not quite sure if it’s has continuation or fresh new characters in a seemingly same theme. I’m not completely impressed with the book. I think this is my least favorite among the author’s books I’ve read (which is only two, three if you add—

    Angel Star by Jennifer Murgia

    Title: Angel Star Author: Jennifer Murgia Pages: 251 Rating: I’m back to the paranormal; I miss it, gorgeous guy masked as human. I need some of my supernatural boys dosage. Keeps my heart pumping, lol. I’ve been seeing this book for a while and I was hesitant to try it, I am more of a ‘beautiful-cover-to-get-me-interested’ kind of reader but after reading some book blogs and saying it was nice (and better than Fallen, which I totally love), that was—

    Waiting for You by Susane Colasanti

    Title: Waiting for You Author: Susane Colasanti Pages: 288 Rating: So I decided to try another Susane Colasanti books, I still like to read Something Like Fate but apparently it’s still not available. I read the summary of Waiting for You so I decided what the heck, it seems ok. I like When it Happens more but the story of this book is not that bad at all. It wasn’t exactly romance per se because it tackles a lot of—
