Review: Alex

Alex Alex by Zoya Tessi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is about a girl whose life is in danger and in order to protect her, her father hired a bodyguard for her. That bodyguard’s name is Alex. And both of them can’t stand each other’s company. They’re always fighting and going on each other’s throats. Until a day come that neither of them can’t last a day without the other.

Okay. If you read that one it sounds pretty romantic right? I mean there’s a saying that says “The more you hate, the more you love”. It applies to them big time.

Review: What I Need

What I Need What I Need by J. Daniels
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hiya peeps!

How are you all?

Been a while since I last posted a review here because of school stuff and some other things. But worry no more! For here I am bringing you a new review of a book from one of my all-time favorite author, J. Daniels!!

Now you see, when her book, What I Need the fourth book of the Alabama Summer Series, came live last Monday (March 5th), I just got to have it and devour it. You guys know how much I love Daniels’s works right? So despite having quizzes this week and midterms next week, I still read her latest release. I planned on binge reading the book but then again quizzes so I just finished it tonight, like two minutes ago.

And now I can’t wait to share my thoughts about this! I know I’m going to have a hangover on this cause I’m already feeling it days before I finished reading it. Haha!

If you guys don’t know about the Alabama Summer Series, it is a series about a group of friends who found love in the most interesting, amazing, and sometimes funny and awkward way. And in this fourth book of the series, it tells the story of CJ Tully and Riley Tennyson.

In all honesty, I didn’t know that CJ was officially part of the Bama Boys because at first I thought he was just a minor character. I seriously didn’t expect him having his own part of the series. But I still waited for his book and read it so bad my phone almost got dead on me.

I gotta say, of all the books in the Alabama Summer Series this book is my second most favorite! Of course, my beloved Reed Tennyson’s When I Fall, the third book, will always be the first. Also one of the factor that made me love What I Need is there are a lot of updates in Reed and Beth’s life because Reed is Riley’s big brother.

Book Tour (Excerpt + Giveaway): Curse of Stars by Donna Compositor

Hiya peeps!

How are you all? Been a while.

Welcome to my tour stop of the Curse of Stars by the amazing Donna Compositor! I am here to give you an excerpt of the story! Read it and check the book out!

Title: Curse of Stars 
Author: Donna Compositor
(Diamond Crier #1)
Publication date: February 19th 2017
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Synopsis: Sabi Perez is the last Diamond Crier, only she doesn’t know it. Not until a crazed ruler from another world comes to collect her priceless tears and won’t take no for an answer.

Living in New York, Sabi’s seen some nasty things, but the lengths to which her captor will go to keep his crown are things found only in the darkest nightmares. Afraid and alone, Sabi finds solace in her cellmate, Anya, and Cabal, a fellow Crier who also has powers, a rare combination that buys his favor from the ruler. Only it’s a favor he doesn’t want.

In a fit of rage, power erupts out of Sabi, the same power Cabal has, and a spark of hope ignites. Together they may have a chance at escape, something no other Crier has done. Except a ruler hellbent on draining them of every last diamond tear isn’t their only hurdle. If they escape they’ll be hunted to the ends of the earth, if they survive the trek to safety. If they stay the ruler will leech them dry. Sabi would rather die trying than lie down and die, even if that means running away into even more danger.

Review: A Court of Thorns and Roses

A Court of Thorns and Roses A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Please don't hate me with my rating. I know this book is so popular. A lot of people actually loved this book and it has hardcore fans but please don't hate me. ^_^

I admit that one of the reason why I picked up this book is because of its hype. I mean come on, every single booknerd in the book community loved this book. So I thought maybe it really is that awesome.

I got high expectations on this book. I really do. I thought reading this would bring me in a magical place where whenever I start reading I can't stop then. But I was a bit wrong.

I don't know why this book is super duper over hype. The whole time I was reading it I didn't have any emotions. I mean, it didn't gave me the feels like the other books, didn't gave me the awesome adventure I was expecting. It was just... plain?

Though the story was good, it was kind of cliche -for me that is. I didn't even felt that oozing hotness in the male characters. What the heck is wrong with me? It was just really plain for me. I don't know why that is.

And I don't really like Feyre's character that much. She's way too stubborn for my liking. There are types of stubbornness in a character in a book. There are those stubborn but still cute; stubborn but bearable; but Feyre is the kind of stubborn that is irritatingly annoying. (Are those words combined even allowed in English grammar though?) Yes. Her stubbornness irritates me to the core. I also don't know why.

And Rhysand. Please don't hate me when I say that whenever I read a part with Rhysand in it I feel like he's gay or something. Like seriously. I picture him gay in my head. Though the things that described him were far from gay. And yeah he kissed Feyre but still. He sure does sound gay to me.

Then Tamlin. Man, I don't know how to feel about him. At first I seriously like him but then most of the people I knew who have read this book said that I will hate Tamlin in the future. Like they want me to hate Tamlin or something. He's character is okay to me.

Yo. Don't hate me about this. These are just my opinion, my review. We all have different say about the same things right? But maybe I'm just saying this because I haven't read the second book yet. But I plan on doing so. So maybe whenever I finish that second and third book my thoughts about this series will change, right?

I hope.

News: I Have Decided

Hiya there peeps!

How are you all doing?

This is just gonna be a short post about a news I want to share with you all whoever is reading this.

I have decided to manage and update one blog from now on. Some of you know I have three active blogs right now, in Wordpress, Wix, and Blogspot. But finally I have decided to not continue the other two and just keep updating the Wordpress blog.

If you must know, I created three blogs from three different sites because I was still starting and exploring the world of book blogging community and I can’t decide which site to stick to. So I decided to keep updating all three until such time that I noticed that only the Wordpress blog has some readers. I mean, maybe there are also readers in those two other blogs but I can’t feel them. No one comments in there so I really don’t know if there is someone who actually visits those blogs.

Just so you know, I don’t have problem updating all three of those blogs. I even update my Goodreads review plus sometimes my Netgalley and my account in My Trending Stories site. I have no problem updating a lot of sites because I love doing those things. I want to be accessible to some of the audience. Like if they have a Wordpress account and want to follow me they can follow my Wordpress blog, or if they have a Blogspot account and want to talk bookish stuff to me about it through blogs they can do it with my Blogspot blog. I want to be accessible so that new friends won’t have a hard time talking to me. But in those months that I stayed active in Wix and Blogspot, I can’t feel any presence there. It’s ghost town for me there.

So I decided to close down my Wix and Blogspot blogs and stick to Wordpress. I am not deleting these two blogs but I am not updating them anymore. Though I still have a tour going on in my Wix blog which will be on February so I will update it to that day only and after that I will repost this blog post so anyone who suddenly got lost and find my Wix blog will know that it’s no longer active.

Also, to those authors who want me to review their books and happen to stumble upon this very blog, you can still send me your request using the contact form in this blog. Just know that I will post my review of your book in my Wordpress blog. I will make sure to let you know if that happens then.

Now, thank you so much to those people who visit these blogs and read the contents of it. I appreciate it so much. If you want to keep tracking my blogging activities, my Wordpress blog will always be open! Thank you so much for reading up to here. :D 


There's going to be a blog tour in this blog this coming March. After that tour, this blog will not be updated anymore. :D Thanks for stopping by.
