“A reader lives a thousand lives. You’re always off somewhere, Bellamy, exploring other worlds. You have many lives.”

Bellamy and the Brute is a modern and sweet retelling of one of my favorite fairy tales Beauty and the Beast. The story follows Bellamy, a book worm girl who loves her father even as he is ridiculed and targeted as being the towns freak. Bell gets a chance to work at the infamous  Baldwin House, aware that a few years ago their oldest son Tate went...

“And the infinite captivates us because it allows us to believe all things are possible. That true love can last beyond time.” 

Vampires are back in this slow yet thrilling love/mystery story set in New Orleans. This book gave me major The Vampire Diaries and Twilight flashbacks and I loved every single one of them. I also love vampires and missed them with a passion as slowly books start discovering other magical creatures and have stopped featuring one of my fav...

“In the county, there’s nothing more dangerous than a woman who speaks her mind. That’s what happened to Eve, you know, why we were cast out from heaven. We’re dangerous creatures. Full of devil charms. If given the opportunity, we will use our magic to lure men to sin, to evil, to destruction.” My eyes are getting heavy, too heavy to roll in a dramatic fashion. “That’s why they send us here.”
“To rid yourself of your magic,” he says.
“No,” I whisper as I drift o...

“I was stuck in a life I didn't remember, squeezed into the shell of this girl - this Samantha Joe Franco - and the more I learned about her, the more I was starting to hate her.” 

Don't Look Back is a thrilling, mysterious and somewhat romantic novel that I was not expecting to enjoy as much as I did. For this Halloween month I decided to read as many spooky or mystery books as I can and get on with the spook vibes October brings. The first book I decided to grab...

 "Three, Two, One, See Ya" 

Renée Carlino's writing will never disappoint. It will be always woven nicely, meshed together extremely well. However, The Last Post wasn't my favorite cup of tea. Maybe I expected a lot because of having read Before We Were Strangers. The writing is good don't get me wrong, my problem was with the characters and my inability to engage or connect with them. 

The story is amazing though, the plot itself is f...

“Sometimes tomorrow never comes and you're only left with the memories of yesterdays.” 

If you are up for a painful read, I suggest you grab the tissues and get prepared for a tearjerking plot. The author sweeps up your feet and plunges you into the lives of two people, lives that have gone through some of the worst pain imaginable and page by page you are allowed to observe the beautiful reconstruction of their souls. 

Elizabeth and Tristan were not meant to meet,...

"Every good story needs a villain.
But the best villains are the ones you secretly like.” 

I waited and waited to get my hands on Legendary. Caraval was a good book filled with great and amazing things, but all in all the book didn't surprise me as I found a lot of things wrong. This one however really captivated me. I am usually not fond of second books, they usually are fillers and never have too much excitement. Legendary actually increased my love towards this...

“I guess I see your point. It can be messy. Love can be brutal and leave you aching, but it’s also impossible to live without love, to grow without it. Don’t you think?" 

The Trouble With Love is promoted as a forbidden office/brother's best friend romance yet it is so much more. Morgan is a hardworking, geek who desires to create the perfect dating app. Her goals are finally coming true as she lands her dream job in SEVEN, a company dedicated to creating apps and...

"No matter how much pain it has caused, no matter how many tears have fallen, sometimes love isn’t meant to be, leaving the ifs to linger"

This story had so much freaking potential, it really did. The cover is enticing, the characters are broody and their lives seemed interesting enough. I love romances that end bad and then the couple sees each other years later only to be attacked by the memories and the "ifs" of what could have happened between them. Second cha...

“Divorce isn’t supposed to happen, but it does, and no one really knows how to deal with it. It frees you of one thing while imprisoning you with a thousand others. Life isn’t even remotely fair.”

Romance books are sometimes hard to categorize. You have those that are simple, cliche and cute to read when you're in a mood for a little saving, you also have those that rip your heart our and heal you and make you ponder about love, relationships, and romance. Tarryn...

“Never allow yourself to believe you should be silent.” 

Oh how I missed this world, Samantha Shannon. I am currently in a dystopia/YA adventure sort of mood and all I want to read are rebellious books and stories that bleed through the pages. This is one of those. I am so sad that I can't simply reach for my library to get the fourth one, but hopefully it will come sooner than expected. As for this third installation, I must say it was beyond incredible. Our favo...

“Never Flinch.' A cold whisper in her ear. 'Never fear. And never, ever forget.'
The girl nodded slowly.
Exhaled the hope inside.
And she'd watched her father die.” 

First things first, Nevernight is a story completely unique. A world and a type of writing that you will not find elsewhere. Jay Kristoff weaved a world together filled with history and characters with so much to tell. 

Mia Corvere watched her father die, and her whole family got taken away from her wh...

“How long will I live my life afraid of what-ifs?” 
 

Five Feet Apart is a YA romance belonging in the same category of Fault in Our Stars, Everything Everything, Me Before You and all those ill fated romances we hate to love. However, Five Feet Apart has been the only one that hasn't made me feel enough to cry. Don't get me wrong, this book is sad, its filled with grief and an impossible romance. It is a book that I am glad was made, however as the writing and pl...

“I promise you. I promise you the stars. I promise you the lake and falls, coywolves and robins. I promise earth and heaven: I will love you long after the last human has taken his last breath. When the stars burn out and the oceans freeze over and the whole world is ash and dust and ice, our names will still be carved into this tree of life, side by side, and I'll still be loving you.”

Magical Realism is hard to create, it is one of those genres that the author m...

“What do you need, Clare?”…
“You.”
“Then take it.” 

I really wanted to like this duet. I read the synopsis and thought that this was probably going to be one of those stories that broke me and left me without an ability to want to read anything else. I was wrong, this book started a book slump for me that I haven't been able to get out of for all the wrong reasons. It didn't gut me, it made me mad. It didn't make me cry, it made me fall asleep and pick another boo...
