    Dare You To

    Author: Katie McGarry Series: (Pushing the Limits #2) Expected publication: May 28th 2013 Publisher: Harlequin Teen Categories: Contemporary, Realistic Fiction Rating: I received an eARC from Harlequin UK via Netgalley. Thank you. The story of golden boy meet skater girl screams ‘opposite attracts.’ And yes, I do believe that the two are different but at the same time similar. It all started as a dare, and Beth was the unknowing victim of Ryan and his friends’ dare. At their first—

    Just One Day

    Author:  Gayle Forman Series: (Just One Day #1) Published: January 8th 2013 Publisher: Dutton Books Categories: Contemporary, Realistic Fiction Rating: Here’s a little love lesson from Willem. There’s a significant difference between falling in love and being in love. Falling in love is something you can remove; like a nuttela in the wrist which you can wipe clean. While being in love is something will never come off, just like a stain you can’t remove. Yes, stained. And I kind—

    Boundless

    Author:  Cynthia Hand Series: (Unearthly #3) by Published: January 22nd 2013 Publisher: HarperTeen Categories: Fantasy, Paranormal Rating: Ok, you guys I’m ready to speak. I’m ready to shout it out to each and every one concern how much this book disappoints me. I know it’s unfair to judge and rate it on who Clara ended up with. It is totally and utterly unfair. But the story did treat the ‘one I preferred for her’ the exact same way. I wish—

    Mind Games

    Author: Kiersten White Series:(Mind Games #1) Expected publication: February 19th 2013 Publisher: HarperTeen Categories: Action, Fantasy, Science Fiction Rating: I received an eARC from HarperTeen via Edelweiss. Thank you. When the blurb says that Mind Games is a stunning departure from her bestselling Paranormalcy trilogy, I should’ve believed it. That’s totally true. This book is more edgy, a bit serious with some dark theme going on. I have a confession to make before I go and tell you good folks of—

    Shadowlands

    Author:  Kate Brian Series: (Shadowlands #1) Published: January 8th 2013 Publisher: Hyperion Categories: Paranormal, Suspense, Thriller Rating: I tried a few books from Kate Brian (and her other pseudonym) and liked them. So when I found out she has written a different kind of book from the bunch I’ve tried, I decided to check it out. There’s no denying that Shadowlands is really different, a little vague but not a complete successful venture to paranormal, thriller combination. This book opens—

    Week 03. Waiting on Wednesday

    It’s Wednesday again. What books are you looking forward to reading? Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that showcases much awaited upcoming releases. Putting a little twist to my WoW post. I’m going to feature two books per week, separated by category. One, is ‘On the Lookout‘ showcases debut, standalone, or first in a new book series. And the ‘Sequels to Watch‘ is for sequels. These categories are also featured widgets on my blog’s—

    Week 03. Top Ten Tuesday

    Tuesday is for top ten list! Here’s mine! Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list  that bloggers will answer. And for this week’s topic: January 15: Top Ten 2013 Debuts I’m Looking Forward To I’m pretty lucky to have read a few titles that I was eagerly anticipating since last year. But sadly they fell in the mediocre category so that completely saddened me.—

    The Proposal

    Author:  Katie Ashley Series: (The Proposition #2) Published: January 10th 2013 by Publisher: Katie Ashley Productions (Self  Published) Categories: Adult, Contemporary, Realistic Fiction Rating: If you thought there’s no more story left aside from forgiving Aidan and their HEA then you’re wrong. The Proposal is not all about Aidan asking Emma her forgiveness. But we get to see more of them, particularly Aidan. We found out why this guy is a commitment phobe. Plus a sexy doctor which I found—

    Timekeeper

    Author:  Alexandra Monir Series: (Timeless #2) Published: January 8th 2013 Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers Categories: Fantasy, Science Fiction Rating: To put it simply Timekeeper is a complete disappointment and if I’m going to be brutally honest is a waste of good opportunity. I wish that Timeless was a standalone novel, it should’ve ended with Philip remained on his time and Michele moved on with her life in her own time. It might not be a happy ending but—

    Altered

    Author:  Jennifer Rush Series: (Altered #1) Published: January 1st 2013 Publisher: Little, Brown & Co. Categories: Fantasy, Science Fiction Rating: I have to admit that this one is entirely my fault. Normally I would have loved it because everything I want in a YA sci-fi novel is here. Plus the inevitable romance which is always a part of the YA package. You know me needs some lovin’. I got those plus more, but my sorry state of mind that day—
