    The Iron Legends

    Author: Julie Kagawa Series: (The Iron Fey #1.5, 3.5, 4.5) Published: August 28th 2012 Publisher:  Harlequin Teen Categories: Fantasy, Paranormal Rating: I realized that it’s been almost two years since I last read Winter Passage. It feels kinda bizarre how different Meghan and Ash before. It was one helluva adventure these guys had experienced to get where they are now. And it’s not even done. Well, Puck is Puck. Robin Goodfellow is the charming summer fey I absolutely adore. Rereading—

    This Dark Endeavor

    Author: Kenneth Oppel Series: (The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein #1) Published: August 23rd 2011 Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers Categories: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Historical Fiction Rating: The reason I was so interested with this book was because the synopsis was uncannily similar to Fullmetal Alchemist (鋼の錬金術師). In it was also a story of two brothers searching for the philosopher’s stone in order to restore their bodies which were involuntarily sacrificed during their failed human transmutation. This Dark—

    The Other Normals

    Author:  Ned Vizzini Expected publication: September 25th 2012 Publisher: Balzer + Bray Categories: Adventure, Fantasy Rating: I received an eARC  from Balzer + Bray  via Edelweiss. Thank you. This book was unexpected. Some were funny, some were totally crazy, and few bits were geeky. I haven’t played RPG, like ever. Unfortunately, I have a very low tolerance for games (all kinds of video games). Since I absolutely have no idea how these things work, I thought it’ll be a refreshing read,—

    Confessions of an Angry Girl

    Author:  Louise Rozett Series: (Confessions #1) Expected publication: August 28th 2012 Publisher: Harlequin Teen Categories: Contemporary, Realistic Fiction Rating: I received an eARC  from Harlequin Teen via Netgalley. Thank you. So Rose our MC is the angry girl. And in her defense she has a lot on her back and I kind of think she has the right to be one. Her dad was offered a high paying job, but after just four months staying in Iraq, he got into an—

    Point of Retreat

    Author: Colleen Hoover Series: (Slammed #2) Published: September 18th 2012 (first published February 25th 2012) Publisher: Atria Books Categories: Contemporary, Realistic Fiction Rating: I received a copy  from Atria Books via Netgalley. Thank you. I’ve been mustering the right words to express my strong feelings for this book but I come up empty. So I’m gonna borrow Bella’s infamous line (with little alteration): I was unconditionally, irrevocably and butterflying in love with Will Cooper—and this book. Oh man, I thought Slammed—

    Slammed

    Author: Colleen Hoover Series: (Slammed #1) Published: September 18th 2012 (first published January 5th 2012) Publisher: Atria Books Categories: Contemporary, Realistic Fiction Rating: I received a copy  from Atria Books via Netgalley. Thank you. This book is beautiful. It has soul. Before, I thought it is impossible for a book to make me simultaneously laugh and cry. Oh boy was I wrong. This book did that to me. For a moment I looked crazy. Crying then laughing the next second. There—

    Slated

    Author: Teri Terry Series: (Slated #1) Published:May 3rd 2012 Publisher: Orchard Books Categories: Dystopia, Science Fiction Rating: Slating is process where the government wipes the lawbreakers’ memories blank. After that, they will undergo months of rehabilitation and when deemed acceptable they send the ‘slated’ to their new family. But they are still being monitored and attached to their wrist is a Levo, a technology that indicates emotional status (if they’re in distress the numbers will drop).  Kyla Davis has been—

    Beautiful Disaster

    Author: Jamie McGuire Series: (Beautiful #1) Published: July 12th 2012 (first published May 26th 2011) Publisher: Atria Books Categories: Contemporary, Realistic Fiction Rating: I received a copy  from Atria Books via Netgalley. Thank you. Reading this book for the second time for me is like solving a picture puzzle. The first time was I was hurriedly putting the pieces together.

    Throne of Glass

    Author: Sarah J. Maas Series: (Throne of Glass #1) Published: August 7th 2012 Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Children’s Categories: Adventure, High-Fantasy Rating: I wholeheartedly agree with all those glittering reviews. This one is a fantastic read. Good thing I tried it and shrugged off my sister’s comment that I would not like it because I’m not ‘into high-fantasy’ (which is true, normally I’m not). But I followed my gut instinct, there’s something about it…ok, scratch that, I’m coming clean it was—

    Love Unscripted

    Author: Tina Reber Series: (Love #1) Published: Published March 6th 2010 Publisher: Self-Published Categories: Realistic, Contemporary, Romance Rating: I almost DNF-ed this book. The first quarter of the book was boring. When Taryn saved Ryan from the paparazzi and treated him nonchalantly even though he’s this huge Hollywood star, I have a weird feeling from the pit of my stomach (or probably from something I ate that day) that their actions were contrived. She was being cool because this will—

I don’t know exactly what to say about this book. I don’t even know what possessed me to read this book. I haven’t read any reviews of this book so—
