Hi. I like to sleep and spend the rest of my time reading, watching anime or fangirling over korean pop bands.

What My Mother Doesn't Know

What My Mother Doesn't Know - Sonya Sones 3.5 stars
I had this stupid grin on my face after reading this.

This is my second novel in a verse this year, the first one being Burned by Ellen Hopkins. Although it is far from how heartbreaking Burned was, this book is charming and magnetic. Definitely a comfort quick read.

What My Girlfriend Doesn't Know

What My Girlfriend Doesn't Know - Sonya Sones This book's intention was to shatter and ruin the sweetness of the first book, its very cute ending, and how adorably Sophie sees Robin. This book cracked me up it's funny how accurate Meg Cabot's blurb was. But it wass also capable of making me sad (I shed tears), and mad that I literally hurled the book to the wall after reading it. I felt manipulated having to feel bad for, be happy with, and hate on Robin Murphy as the story went on. I'm still not sure what the climax is or if it's actually climax after climax; there seemed to be so many turning points.

As for the ending, it finished on such a short notice that there's still a tang of bitterness left on my mouth, like I demand more pages, or better, another book for Murphy has lots of making up to do with Sophie. Had the ending been more satisfying, the rating wouldn't have shied away from 1 more star.

We Were Liars

We Were Liars - E. Lockhart This is about a girl named Cadence--whose name should actually be Cadense--and her darlings, the Liars. They were Liars. The Liars.

The girl has migraines and does not (like to) suffer fools--a variation of meaning--but was stupid herself, made a stupid proposition, and stupidly executed the stupid plan which led to something tragic. She has selective amnesia due to the trauma of what her stupidity caused. Her stupidity was the great reveal in the story. When you think about it, there were actually two twists: one of past's truth and the truth of the present summer seventeen. The former was acceptable, the latter I dislike.

So the book was okay. I liked it...sort of. The first three portions of the book were boring, so almost like Cadence, it felt like migraine whenever I get annoyed. I enjoyed it mostly only because I guessed the supposed mindfucks. However, I'm more disappointed that I did. Even so if I haven't, We Were Liars was still a let down for all the hype.
That is all. I'm gonna shut my whiny mouth now.

My Little Monster 1

My Little Monster 1 - Robico The anime wasn't enough! Oh my goodness, my need for a second season is causing me so much intense emotions! Ugh. With that said, this manga series will be one of my top priority reads for the second half of 2014. I've not been so mushy over some shoujo since Kimi Ni Todoke. AHHH Haru Yoshida is probably now my second fictional anime after Shota Kazehaya. :D

Clockwork Prince (Infernal Devices)

Clockwork Prince - Cassandra Clare Not a lot of Shadowhunter fighting action, but more London drama instead. I'm sold though. I was already spoiled with how the trilogy's going to end, but my ship remains to be Jem x Tessa still.


Rebel - Amy Tintera Chapter 39 gave me a heart attack!

The Diviners

The Diviners - Libba Bray Though I had a good time with the book, I cannot disregard the annoying characters and Evie's stupidity. Docking 1 star.

Half Bad (Half Life Trilogy)

Half Bad (Half Life Trilogy) - Sally Green Half Bad is, well, half good. 2.5 stars?

Everybody Sees the Ants

Everybody Sees the Ants - A.S. King Another great read from A.S. King but compared to Please Ignore Vera Dietz, not as powerful and heartbreaking.

OCD Love Story

OCD Love Story - Corey Ann Haydu This book was stressful to read.

Never Fade

Never Fade - Alexandra Bracken 4.85 stars?
If there exists such a thing branded as TOO MUCH ACTION, it has got to be this book! Never Fade is exhausting and painful and frustrating and everything the second book of The Darkest Minds trilogy should ever be. It was agonizing to read 506 pages of suspense and unceasing explosions. I'm surprised my heart is still intact, that I am still whole. I have complaints--a lot, actually--but it's safe to say they're overshadowed by the storm of emotions I have. Fangirl first; make a fuss later... is my mantra right now.

"And all Liam could say, over and over, was "Damn.""

While reading this and even after doing so, I empathize with Liam. DAMN indeed.

Clockwork Angel

Clockwork Angel - Cassandra Clare 3.5 stars
I enjoyed this better than TMI. At the start, I've seen myself giving this 4 stars (maybe even more) but I found some parts just ridiculous and annoying so I docked a half star.

Everyone's part of team Will and here I am cheering for team Jem. I still don't see nor feel the Will appeal. If Raffe from Angelfall could just do some book crossover, I'd honestly have him squash this Nephilim child, Will. lol It would be fun if the next books manage to have me jumping ships. :D

Don't Look Back

Don't Look Back - Jennifer L. Armentrout Unpredictable my ass. Perhaps I was too much competitive with enough wild imagination that at page 8, I already suspected who the villain was, and stuck with it. At 62, BOOM I pinned the secrets and mystery. Success, yes! *flips hair*

Someone kill me now for my ego. lol It's a fun read, I have to admit!

Say What You Will

Say What You Will - Cammie McGovern I really thought I'd give this 5 stars, but something happened towards the end. It's the climax of the story, but given so, it felt unnecessary. I was emotionally engrossed from the beginning and along the way, but thetwist got me dumbstruck to the point where I felt detached from the characters and the story till I eventually finished the book.

The Dream Thieves

The Dream Thieves - Maggie Stiefvater 3.75 stars? Maybe 3.85 even. I don't know.

The Dream Thieves was great. The characters, the new characters, new otps (Mr. Gray and Maura), the twists, the tension (almost yaoi haha), the mystery, the magic... Heck, it's a confusing story but it's not that hard to live with. (The manga Pandora Hearts is more complex and more fucked-up than this one, you know.) However, The Raven Boys was more enjoyable. The Dream Thieves was lacking some Glendower adventure. This is more centered with Ronan's development as a character -- his secrets and sexuality -- but I wish there were also more Noah appearances, and Blue x Gansey interactions.

Anyway, some readers claim to believe that Artemus, Blue's father, might be Glendower, and I think that's plausible. BUT I have this hunch that DICK GANSEY is the real Glendower. Okay, probably not is completely, but could even be was or will be Glendower. Time is circular in the ley line. Anything is possible with the Raven Cycle. The whole story even appears to me as some sort of parallel metaphor.

The Darkest Part of the Forest

The Darkest Part of the Forest - Holly Black It's a Holly Black book. What's not to get excited about? :D
The release date is sooo far away tho.
