Review: Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #1) by Laini Taylor

DaughterofSmoke

When it comes to YA, almost everything is overhyped. And this is not an exception.

But to be honest, I wish it was. It had a lot of potential including the plot, writing style, variety of characters, and the fact that its fantasy, so I feel like there was an effort to do some studying. Still, it wasn’t enough to compensate all the hype it got.

Review: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

Statistical Probability of Love at First SightBullshit.

“Hadley meets the perfect boy. Oliver is British, sits in her row.”

Bullshit. This part of the blurb is hilarious. Is being British one of the qualifications to be called perfect? I’ve read the novel. Pretty sure he’s no near Johnny Deep (aka perfection).

Review: My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

My Life Next Door

Typical.

Samantha, a white girl, thinks she’s so “normal,” and I quote, “..blond hair, blue eyes, freckles, nothing special” Damn right you are! You keep on talking like that and you’ll be every other girl in the neighbourhood. You’re a rich girl. I’m sure we can find and buy you something special. So stop fucking moaning.

Book Blogger Hop: Blogging Experience

Blogging Experience

Back story: I was supposed to post my Top Ten Tuesday but the topic (Top Ten Sequels I Can’t Wait To Get) didn’t fit me quite well. I only read few series and tons of stand-alone. And if I do read one, I make sure that I have every single book in that series. Because I’ve been traumatized by cliffhangers and spoilers. So you know..safety first.

So introducing this is new meme, which is Book Blogger Hop! Where they post and ask a particular question of the week and I answer them.

This week’s question is: 

As you grow in your blogging experience, have you become more particular in terms of what you will post on your blog or what books you will read for review on your blog?

My blog is fairly new. It’s quite young; I only started this year. Soo in terms of my “experience”, I’ve always been particular of what to post. I might have an OCD (Obsessive–Compulsive Disorder). You know, a person who gets satisfied when everything is neatly set and organized. Something like this:

Well I’m not that crazy.. yet. And if I have to be really really honest. I have this thing: I just can’t stand minor errors in my blog posts. Like typos, missing comma, spacing, alignment and such. Hence, this madness:

But no worries, my minimum revisions are usually 8 or so. Which is normal, right? RIGHT?

Besides that, I do have a theme. Which is plain, I know. Maybe boring. But I have my reasons: so that whatever picture I post won’t clash with the blog and it will stand out more. If you’re familiar to my blog, I always put my physical copy (usually) of the book I’m reviewing and also the price (in pesos). And I categorize them in that way–here.

I have nothing against books that are not in physical copy such as e-book and audio. It’s just that I’m not just a reader; I’m also a book collector as well, even an addict. So I prefer them tangible. See: (Btw, that’s not everything. I just can’t make it fit in one picture)

Screen Shot 2014-11-18 at 4.57.58 PMAnd I’m open to any kind of books–fiction and non-fiction. Well maybe not Erotica. But yes, I’ve read Fifty Shades of Gray and let’s just say it was scarring. Just full of sex, really. Which is pretty appropriate, I think.

I review books that pique my interest doesn’t matter what genre it’s in. And it’s usually Adult, specifically historical fiction. I read YA here and there but I have a hard time stoping my eyes from rolling. I guess it’s safe to say that I’m quite picky when it comes to YA. But I read it nonetheless, I just don’t do it often.

What books do you review? What do you prefer the most? And if you have a particular theme you post in your blog? Tell me! Comment down below and share! 🙂

Teaser Tuesday: Noggin by John Corey Whaley

Noggin by John Corey Whaley

I want to tell you a story about how you can suddenly wake up to find yourself living a life you were never supposed to live. It could happen to you, just like it happened to me, and you could try to get back the life you think you deserve to be living. Just like I did.

Currently reading a Young-Adult! Hah, it’s about time! And I’m actually enjoying this. It’s actually funny, well sometimes it is. And I like how nonchalant and happy-go-lucky the main character is.

It’s about this guy, Travis Coates, who has a cancer. And the only way to save him is to preserve his head (yes, ONLY his head) by freezing it. Next is to get a different body and reconnect it to his head. And they wait for five years, and now here he is.

I haven’t gone long though so I could only give you the story’s overview. But it sounds fun! And I had enough of YA romance for now. So this might work out.

Have you read this book? What do you think? Comment down below, so I would know!
