A Sweet Tale of Music and Romance: More Than Maybe by Erin Hahn Review

How do you deal with the grief of fictional character death? If you’re me, I would say, read something cute and fluffy. I was really devastated by the death of one of my favorite characters in the book I read before this. I wanted something that would make me forget and squeal in happiness. More Than Maybe seemed cute enough so I moved it to the top of my reading list.

When I read the first chapter in this book, I knew that I would like it. Mutual pining and assuming feelings are unrequited? It’s one of the tropes I live for.

Warm and Fluffy Read: Eyes on Me by Rachel Harris Review

This is the kind of book that leaves you feeling giddy and warm at the end. The kind that makes you sigh with contentment, wishing to find a love like it.

Before reading this, I reread one of my favorite books by the same author, The Fine Art of Pretending, so I couldn’t help comparing the two. I guess every Rachel Harris book I read will always have high expectations to live up to. But although The Fine Art of Pretending remains my favorite, this one was great too.

Just as Good as I Remembered: The Fine Art of Pretending Review

Before I start this review, let me just say that I have “book amnesia”. I can barely remember books I read years ago even when I absolutely loved it. Honestly, what leaves a lasting impression on me is not the plot but the way a book made me feel.

The Fine Art of Pretending was one of the books that had the honor to be included in my favorites (stand-alone) shelf but I couldn’t even remember any of it. All I know is that it was sweet and fluffy and I absolutely loved it. So despite reading it five years ago, it still felt like the first time.

Perfect Except for the Ending: The Sun is Also a Star Review

This is the kind of book that would’ve been perfect except for one thing: I did not root for them to be together. Yes, they had chemistry but since it all happened in one day, I still feel that everything was a bit rushed.

Yes, I get that this was all supposed to happen in one day but I’m not really a big fan of instalove. I also had a little problem with the ending. Everything was perfect and I was about to give this five stars since it kind of negated the instalove part. Until the epilogue happened.

Funny, Frustrating, and Sweet: Meet Me At Midnight Review

This is one of those books that make you want to scream and shout “FINALLY!” after everything goes well in the end. The kind that puts you through sweet and anxious moments in equal measure. You know that there’s inevitable doom but you don’t mind because it is fun and sweet so you just enjoy the moment while it lasts.

To be honest, I really wasn’t into this at first. I tried picking this up last January but left it for another book. Eventually, I picked this up again because I HAD to read it. So if you decide to read this, I beg that you hold on because things will definitely get more interesting.

Review: This Song Will Save Your Life

I am pretty sure anyone who reads the synopsis for this book will not expect what’s actually inside. Sometimes, books cannot be summed up in a few words. You have to read every page and see the whole picture to know how special it is. This is one of those books.

This Song Will Save Your Life definitely started strong. Elise’s voice was very engaging and I flew through the pages easily. It was funny without trying, sometimes even in serious moments. But what I was not prepared for was the weight it carried right from the beginning. I went into this expecting a light, contemporary read but what I got was something else. Something far more important.

Review: The Bookish Life of Nina Hill

There are certain books you read that leave you with a feeling of contentment. This is one of those.

When I read the excerpt, I expected it to be a typical romantic comedy — a light enough read to keep me entertained. What I was not prepared for was how much depth I found in it.

This book is not just about a girl who loves books and being alone. This book is about comfort in solitude, the gift of family, and how sometimes, the best company comes in the most unexpected people.

Review: 180 Seconds by Jessica Park

This book surprised me in so many ways.

I actually chose to read this because I wanted something fluffy. What I got was something totally different.

If you’re planning on reading this book, you absolutely need one thing: tissues.

No kidding.

Remember those viral videos on Facebook that make you cry? This book is like those videos but in written form. And only the hardest of hearts will be able to hold back their tears.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: The Geography of Lost Things by Jessica Brody

Hello everyone! I am sooo thrilled to be part of the tour organized by Fantastic Flying Book Club for this amazing book.

You know that feeling when you read the blurb and you think that you already know the story?

That’s the impression I had of this book. I thought this would be a light read, complete with all the cliches ever made for road trips and contemporary romance stories. But I was wrong. ABSOLUTELY wrong. Because this book was so, so much more than that.
