    The Candidates by Inara Scott

    Title: The Candidates Author: Inara Scott Series: (Delacroix Academy #1) Pages: 293 Rating: Finally done with this book. Ok, so before I get carried away, let’s start this show. Dancia is just an ordinary girl, from looks, grades, talent… everything. That’s why she was surprised when she was asked to attend the prestigious Delcroix Academy. While it was still a complete mystery for her, she accepted it. And her suspicion grew when she finally in there, because just like what—

    Die for Me by Amy Plum

    Title: Die for Me Author: Amy Plum Series: (Revenants #1) Pages: 344 Rating: I’m a sucker for gorgeous cover; I even put it on my tbr list because the cover was exceptionally gorgeous. But sometimes the only thing that wows me is the cover and I end up being disappointed. Die for Me was one of those—pretty cover, but I’m so happy that it’s not just the cover. I really, REALLY like the story. I’m not a big fan of—

    Battle Royale by Koushun Takami

    Title: Battle Royale Author: Koushun Takami Pages: 614 Rating: Oh man, I got one word for this book – sinister! Even if you combined Hunger Games and Divergent it wouldn’t match the intensity this book has. Not even one fourth. It’s not for everyone – I’m definitely sure of that, I mean there are parts (lots of ‘em) that bothers me (yes, mostly the gruesome parts). I even heard it was a cult book, whatever that is. Oh yeah, no—

    Divergent by Veronica Roth

    Title: Divergent Author: Veronica Roth Series: (Divergent #1) Pages: 487 Rating: *sigh* I hope I’m not the only one who feel about this book. Hate to be the person who burst everyone’s happy bubble. And really hate to be standing on the other side of the spectrum…but the thing is I didn’t like it. A lot of things in this book didn’t work for me. There are books that no matter how much other people like it will fall short—

    Clarity by Kim Harrington

    Title: Clarity Author: Kim Harrington Series: (Clarity #1) Pages: 242 Rating: When Sarah said it’s like Deadly Little Secret, and with that I’m a little hesitant to try it. Yes, I do like the book, the first book that is, from the there it gradually roll down the hill and become repetitive and very boring book. So you can’t blame if I’m a bit apprehensive. So she is right, it’s like the Touch series but definitely, hands down have a—

    The Fallen Star by Jessica Sorensen

    Title: The Fallen Star Author: Jessica Sorensen Series: (Fallen Star #1) Rating: I don’t know what to say about this book, honestly. Did I hate it? Definitely not. Did I like it? Well… I’m not sure. It wasn’t exactly bad, it was very forgettable. And that says a lot because I just finish this book a couple of hours ago. Gemma is the most introvert person I have encountered in my experience reading YA. She doesn’t have friends, as in—

    The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan

    Title: The Last Olympian Author: Rick Riordan Series: (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #5) Pages: 381 Rating: It’s been a while since I finish this book, I think I might have forgotten all the things I like to say about it. I also not quite in the mood to write anything (well, we’ll see..)., but if I keep pushing it further, I might not review it at all. And I don’t like that, I already review the four books (with—

    The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan

    Title: The Battle of the Labyrinth Author: Rick Riordan Series: (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #4) Pages: 361 Rating: Like some, I didn’t like the fourth book that much. Yes, it kinda dragging at the beginning but the later part is really important; it put a lot of things in perspective. The final part is somewhat, a preparation to the last installment, I felt that author wrapped up the book as a groundwork for things to come in the final—

    The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan

    Title: The Titan’s Curse Author: Rick Riordan Series: (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #3) Pages: 304 Rating: Definitely, I like the third book better than the second one (and maybe even the first). There’s a lot of good stuff in here, some small background about the Titan’s, and a lot of more elements added that will stir up the plot in a much higher level. I’m so excited to read the final book already. As I was saying, here there—

    The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan

    Title: The Sea of Monsters Author: Rick Riordan Series: (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #2) Pages: 279 Rating: I said I don’t have any expectation when I started reading Percy, but since it’s the second book, of course I do have now – that it’ll exceed the first book. Though (ooops, sounds negative already) I kinda like the The Lightning Thief a little better than The Sea of Monster (just this tiny, little, small bit. That’s why I rate it—

    The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

    Title: Hunger Games Author: Suzanne Collins Series: Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1 Pages: 377 Rating: It’s the first time I going to use the ‘children’ tag, wow, never thought that time will come. I’m so engrossed in reading YA that I require romance in my reading, and because of that, I always, always choose romance over adventure when it comes to book. But screw it all, if this is what children’s books are, then, yeah, I’m cordially hopping to—

    The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter

    Title: The Goddess Test Author: Aimee Carter Pages: 304 Rating: I’ve been told that I might not like it. I have “small” fascination with Greek mythology. Small, you say? Well, before, when I was a kid (or a teen, I barely remember my age — that time) I love memorizing who’s who. Who is the god of war, goddess of wisdom, etc. But I never get to the point where I’m really into it, that I wanted to learn their—

    Born at Midnight by C.C. Hunter

    Title: Born at Midnight Series: (Shadow Falls #1) Author: C.C. Hunter Rating: I’ve been dying to read this one, and the long wait paid off. I absolutely love it. I was telling Sarah (my sister, whose name should be mentioned by now, by her request, nonetheless) it’s been a while since a character left a big (a massive, huge – get the picture) impression on me. And Lucas, alone, is worth the five star rating, I’m giving to this book.—

    Demon Kissed by H.M. Ward

    Title: Demon Kissed Series: (Ivy Taylor #1) Author: H.M. Ward Rating: This is going to be a very fast review so if you happen to stumble anything out of order, that’s me, and my persuasive nature of posting while I’m in not so good mood. Hmm, not good mood, eh? But let me break it you, I absolutely like the books I’ve read recently. I’m so pump up to give my thoughts about it, even though I’m scarcely hunting for—
