Review: One Kick by Chelsea Cain

One Kick is actually the first book I've read of Chelsea Cain so I can't really compare it to her Gretchen Lowell Series but I found this one depressing, frustrating and disturbing...in a very good way. I don't know if the word enjoy is the right term to use of my reading experience because  it dealt with highly disturbing subject matter but the book definitely hooked me from beginning to end. To be honest, even though One Kick engaged me and a big chunk of the book was read in one sitting, I … Read More...

Review: Merciless by Danielle Vega

I do admit that the very first reason I wanted to read this book was because of one review – Giselle’s at the Xpresso Reads. She talked about how she felt like screaming at the book’s happenings, and that made the horror fan in me very, very curious, indeed. I like the thrill of being scared […]

Review: Don’t Fall by Rachel Schieffelbein

Contemporary and retellings are my favorite genres, and rarely do I see books that fall under both (or maybe I just haven’t found them yet) so I was really looking forward to reading Don’t Fall – a contemporary retelling of Rapunzel. It wasn’t much though – not that good, not that bad, not that special […]

Review: Welcome to the Dark House by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Welcome to the Dark House felt very much like a slasher film. You are introduced to a group of misfit characters who’ve been lured together in a location in the middle of nowhere and if you’re like me who watch a lot of said films, we all know that not everyone will survive. In this case, we get seven essay winners of […]

Review: The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco

Warning: Creepy pictures included in this review. This disclaimer is mostly for you Aimee. Despite my overactive imagination after watching or reading anything scary, I do love the horror genre. I can be embarrassingly sissy afterwards (sleeping with the lights on, peeing with the door open) but there’s just this rush that you get when creeped […]

Musings: Blogoversary or Blogiversary?

I’ve seen a lot of people celebrating blog birthdays and seen both variations of the term. Congratulations to all you lucky people for reaching so far BTW. Anyway, I’m not really sure which one is the correct one or if there is a correct one. We’re in a generation where anything can happen. I actually […]

Event Recap: #StephaniePerkinsInPH

Due to bad experiences in the past, I wasn’t setting my hopes up for the Stephanie Perkins book signing event by National Bookstore. But I actually found that I had a pretty good time. It wasn’t perfect, but definitely better than the last one I attended. At 9PM on June 5, National Bookstore tweeted that […]

Guest Post: When Will I See You Again? by Joanne Rock

Continuing Characters in a YA Series Let’s take a quick poll! You just picked up the first book in a hot new series by one of your favorite YA authors. There is a heroine and a maybe-hero—things get heated now and then between them, but the ending is no happy-ever-after, thank goodness, since the characters […]
