Booksters, it’s time to say ba-ba-bye to January and hello to the month of the Valentine. BRING ON THE CHEESE, PEOPLE. Anyway, let’s move past this episode of cheesession and on to the wrap-up.
Wait.. did anyone say burrito?
No, silly. A bookish wrap-up.
Oh well, my inner Joey is riding strong today.
Ginger Scott, you did it again.
I am miserably and barely getting over the serious case of feels A Boy Like You has given me. Truth be told, it is really my pleasure – painful but welcome, okay – because this year I had not yet found a love story that completely won me over. But the best part is that this book is special in many other aspects as well.
Best-YA-debut-alert! Remember my words, because since the very first moment I saw this book on Netgalley I knew it was destined for success. I don’t have a crystal ball, and honestly, it’s not like I can always trust my gut. But sometimes this feeling is just spot on and yes, I feel kind of witchy. Just for the record, I was approved for this ARC on August 2016 and I have been anticipating this read since then but saving it for a date closer to release. And that was TORTURE. Because wow.
So, trust me on this one and keep this book on your radar.
Gemina has been featured in many many many 2016 lists. It was definitely one of my most anticipated books, unfortunately, it will not be on my top books this year. This book is as unique as I was expecting, but unlike Illuminae, Gemina didn’t completely win me over.
I confess, this is my first Patrick Ness book. Now, let me tell you, this will most certainly NOT be the last. A Monster Calls blew me a-w-a-y.
“You really aren’t afraid, are you?”
“No,” Conor said. “Not of you, anyway.”
The monster narrowed its eyes. “You will be,” it said. “Before the end.”
