Book Review: Tell Us Something True by Dana Reinhardt

dsc_0213_fotorTitle: Tell Us Something True
Author: Dana Reinhardt
Release Date: June 2016
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
Retail Price: $16.99
Overall Rating:  7.5/10
Genre: Romance, Contemporary, Coming of Age

Dana Reinhardt’s Tell Us Something True is a simple but incredibly intriguing read. I’ll admit that when I picked up this book I was unsure about whether or not I would really like it- the plot sounded cheesy and the colour of the cover wasn’t really doing it many favours. However, the moment I read about River and the more I delved into the story I was addicted. It was an easy read because River’s voice has the typical voice of any teenage boy but the storyline made the novel extraordinary.

Tell Us Something True kind of reminds me of a modern West Side Story cross Beauty and the Beast. It might not make much sense but what I’m trying to say is I love how Reinhardt takes completely two different characters each with bad histories and makes them fall in love. I love seeing how their relationship developed and how their stories interlaced. When I discovered that Penny’s helper was Daphne’s mother my brain was exploding because I would never have guessed. Reinhardt really does take this classic foundation of a romance story and adds layers upon layers of new elements to create this fun read.

I also really like the character development of River because his coming of age and development are clearly evident, which I believe is an important theme in the novel. River grows from this dependent, young teenager to another more mature and older boy. I loved reading about who he was and then reading about who he then went on to become.

Dana Reinhardt’s Tell Us Something True is definitely a great read if you are looking for a fun, easy contemporary read. I think they only thing that let me down was the fact that it didn’t give much of a WOW factor but I believe that it was still a really intriguing novel!

It’s Finally Here Lady Midnight: Teaser Tuesdays!

jij'

Hello,  Guys!

I actually can’t contain my EXCITEMENT because guess what came out yesterday? LADY MIDNIGHT!! So, here I am blogging about how my brain feels like mush because I have Lady Midnight, in my hands. Words can not actually describe my happiness. I may have homework I need to finish and tests I need to study for but I’m still happy because I can’t wait to jump into the Shadowhunter world and meet Emma and Julian in a world that I have become familiar with after three years of reading the Shadowhunter Chronicles! Who else has this novel and is super excited to read this?

currently reading:
lady midnight by cassandra clare

CdAs3CkW4AAhDjmYes, this is the hands-down amazing Lady Midnight, which I am currently reading. I have literally no time to read it, I’m a hundred pages in which is pretty good considering I got it yesterday and have barely had any time. After tomorrow, I’ll be over with one of my tests and I hope I’ll find some time to sit down and read this! I’m loving it so far and I already ship Emma and Julian.

This is me at the moment with the Emma and Julian ship .(I mean, what is their ship name?)

Personally, I hate how Emma doesn’t notice that Julian is her true love and I am so excited to dig deeper into this part of the Shadowhunter world. Before this novel was released many would tell me how Cassandra Clare is milking off of her series but honestly, I love how many books she is writing in this series. The Mortal Instruments is a series which will always stay with me. Having multiple stories with multiple facets and features of the whole world makes me so happy. I know every year I can look forward to a new Shadowhunter book. I truly think, that I’ll end up growing up with this book and when she stops writing about the Shadow world it’ll signify the end of my childhood. I really want to savour this book but at the same time I want to devour it whole! Anyway, I am sure I’ll love this book.

“Julian felt his heart wrench inside his chest. He had no words for the feeling of upheaval Malcom’s words caused. It was too much like being tumbled by a wave, solide footing giving way in the silde of sand.’Stop.’ ”
-Cassandra Clare, Lady Midnight

have you guys read lady midnight yet? what are you guys currently reading?

I’m Part Of The Yearbook Committee! The Yearbook Committee Review

FotorCreated

Title: The Yearbook Committee
Author: Sarah Ayoub
Release Date: February 2016
Retail Price: $16.00
Overall Rating:  7/10
Genre: Contemporary, Romance, Drama and Growing-up

I received  Sarah Ayoub’s The Yearbook Committee from Harper Collins Publishing Press, in exchange for a review.  Please note that this does not alter, influence or change my opinions on the novel, in the following review.

“Everything seemed uncertain, different, damaged. Just like the promise of our youth, now irreversibly changed due to a night whose sinister warning had been brewing steadily beneath the surface of our teenage dreams,”
– The Yearbook Committee by Sarah Ayoub

I don’t really know how to label this book- The Yearbook Committee. It definitely was a different book to what I normally read and I foundmyself liking many parts but I didn’t like other parts, as well. However, I have to admit, the book was well written for a contemporary and I couldn’t help loving all of the characters in the book. There is just something so cute when five teenagers with five completely different lives come together to create a yearbook, in their final year of school. There is a little bit of romance, great characters and a lot of drama and I found myself enjoying the book. I recommend this book if you are looking for a not-so-cliche, cute and a drama-filled contemporary.

The Yearbook Committee follows the story of five completely different teenagers who all get dragged and pulled together to form- The Yearbook Committee. As they continue to catch up to complete the yearbook, new romances and friendships begin to form. As the five teenagers try to survive the last year of highschool, problems arises, friendships are broken and irreversable mistakes are made.

spoiler review:

What I really enjoyed about the book was the concept behind it. I love the start of each chapter and how we get this Facebook Status for each DSC_0105character, it was so cute and it’s a very contemporary way to write the novel. I also love how throughout the story there are multiple dilemas with each character, due to the many perspectives. At times when I felt bored or didn’t really enjoy what was happening I knew I could look forward to reading the lives of other characters in their own perspectives. Normally, I would hate multiple points of views because I hate trying to workout which chapter is which character’s but Sarah Ayoub made it really clear which character was which and each individual character had their own distinct voices. For this novel, multiple points of views seemed to work really well, it felt like I was getting insight to the lives of each and every character. I also really enjoyed the prologue, I wanted to know what happened. The prologue was kind of a view of the future and it really keeped me questioning throughout the novel.

As for the characters, I loved the cliché nature of each of the five characters. However, each character as you dug deeper you discover that they are actually totally difficult to their labels as- “the new girl,”; “the popular girl” and “the loner”. I loved how she took the stereotypical characters and gave them each a new found depth. The only issue I had was the fact that I found it difficult to relate to the characters. Charlie was a girl I really wanted to like, I tried yet I kind of failed, she grew on me by the end of the novel but whilst reading the book, I didn’t really like her personality. I understand how she was the type of girl who fought for rights of many minorities. However, there was this edge to her that got on my nerves. I didn’t like how she acted as if the world owed her this huge favour and then she fell in love with the school captain. I couldn’t really stand it. Matty was a character that added a sense of darkness and reality to the story because his story was one of the more sorrowful stories. Anyway, I did love Tammi’s story because I enjoyed reading about how she was starting to drift away from being the cruel popular person she was. Her character developed so well and I found myself relating to Tammi the most. What really annoyed me was the fact that she took the drugs from Mike. I wanted to see how their relationship would develop, yet it backfired. This brings me to my next point- the ending.

The ending threw me off, because I never expected the book to end like it did. It was abrupt and I was in a few ways disappointed. I wanted to see what would happen to all of the characters. I felt like we never really get to see how the characters dealt with the after math. I can’t believe Gillian dies- I was literally like, “What is happening?” I couldn’t belive Tammi took the drugs because you would think that by the time they were in the last year of high school they would know what to do when a stranger gives you unknown pills. (#areyoukidingme) I wanted to see the Yearbook, I thought that there was so much talk about the Yearbook yet we never really get to see glipses of the finish product. The yearbook idea kind of was lost within the plot.

Overall the book was definitely really enjoying to read and I found myself cracking a smile once or twice. I really enjoyed the storyline and I loved reading about the lives of each characters! I highly recommend it if you are looking for a unique and special contemporary.

#tagtime: Secret Life Of A Book Blogger Tag!

gui n0mpi

Hiya!

Sorry for not posting as much as I normally would, I’ve been a bit busy and so I haven’t had much of a chance to sit down to do something I absolutely love: Blogging❤! I don’t really do tags that often but on the topic of blogging, I decided to the secret life of a book blogger tag! I got this tag over at the amazing blog over at Rattle The Pages (Hi, Cyra!!)! I hope you find yourself agreeing to some of these and here is just a little insight into my life as a blogger! Comment below if you have any answers to these questions! I would love to see them!

how long have you been blogging?

You know what, I’ve actually been blogging for about a year and a half but it honestly doesn’t feel like that! The year has gone by so quickly and with all the new tips and tricks I’m learning along the way it only feels like I’ve been blogging for about five months!

IMG_3090

at what point do you think you’ll stop blogging?

This actually scares me so much, my blog has actually grown into something I love! Knowing that one day, I’ll grow up and forget about this seems scary and unreal. I’ve met so many people and friends through this and to think that one day I’ll just leave this community scares me. So, like Jace once said, “Some things are too unlikely to dwell upon,”

what is the best thing about blogging?

Does everything count as an answer? Hahaha, jks. One of the best things about blogging is the amazing community (this sounds so cheesy) but honestly, the amount of super nice bloggers out there who actually take the time to interact with me, comment and chat with me is unreal! It honestly makes my day so much brighter!

what is the worst thing about blogging? what do you do to make it okay?

I don’t know what to say but there is one little thing that I find slightly annoying- the formatting. It takes so long, I remember when I first moved to this new layout and it honestly took me two days or so to get into the swing of things, finding design inspirations, searching for how-tos and setting up the move from my old website to this new one. The formatting is hard to get right and there is so much trial and error. One thing that I do to make it more tolerable is by thinking ahead. If I think to myself that when I finish this my blog will look amazing, I’ll be a lot more motivated.

Processed with VSCOcam with a5 preset

how long does it take you to create/find pictures to use?

Well, I try to use all of my own photos and I try to edit them myself because it gives a much more personal look to my blog and not only that but I would hate to get caught out on copyright issues. Normally, I have photo shoots on the weekends and reuse them later on in the week for various things, such as my blog and Instagram. Then, I’ll edit them and add text and banners for my blog on website platforms like Picmonkey and Fotor. So for all the photos on one post, it’ll take me about five to ten minutes (not including photo shoot time).

who is your book crush?

This question… well, if you want me to list  hundreds  I mean a few book crushes I have here are some of them: Will Herondale, Jace Herondale (Yes, I love both of my Herondales #sorrynotsorry 🙂 ) and DAEMON!!!

what author would you love to have on your blog?

Hands down, Cassandra Clare! I actually want her on my blog one day! I’m going to meet her and get her to sign my twelve books written by her. (okay, maybe that is a bit too excessive)

what do you wear when you write your blog posts?

I don’t really have a definite answer as I’m one of those bloggers who will find any little space in my day to squeeze in a little blogging. However, I am currently wearing my pyjamas, which are just a t-shirt and pyjama shorts and I guess I wear them a lot. So, pyjamas are my answer!

how long does it take you to prepare?

Who would have known that a blog post can take three whole days to post? Sometimes, when I’m really motivated and it’s a pretty short post, like this one. It’ll take me about thirty to forty-five minutes. However, for reviews where I really have to compile everything and double edit my review, it’ll take me about forty minutes to an hour and usually about five to ten minutes for formatting the next day.

how do you feel about the book blogging community and nature?

I LOVE IT! Like I’ve mentioned before everyone on here is so nice to me and it takes me by surprise all the time! I get so many kind words and I feel like I can never give enough back! I’m so lucky because to me the book blogging community is like my second batch of friends.

what do you think one should do to get a successful blog?

The golden question- I think if someone found the answer to immediately creating a successful blog- they would be swamped with questions. For now, I think one of my main tips is to get out there and like, comment and chat with other bloggers. It’s one of the only ways to put yourself out there in the community- I mean, how else would they find you? Don’t be afraid to say hi or to compliment other bloggers because they love it just as much as you would!

 

So, what do you think? Comment below if you found yourself agreeing to any of these
or if you want to share a bit about your secret life as a book blogger!

who do i tag?

If anyone else wants to do this tag feel free to post it! I would love to see your answers! Here are some of my nominees:

Bring The Tissues Out- I’m Reading Me Before You ❤ Teaser Tuesdays: March 1st

jij'

Hiya, guys!

It’s Teaser Tuesdays again and I’m so excited to share with you the book, I’m currently reading (even though you can probably guess which book I’m reading based on the title)! Teaser Tuesdays is where I share with you, my current read, give you a little teaser and tell you my current thoughts on the novel!

What are you guys reading?

I’m currently reading:
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
IMG_3563

I’m actually so excited about reading Me Before You! I’m only on chapter one but I’m pretty intrigued! I’ve heard so much about this book and I’ve seen many five star reviews around the blogosphere! I have a packet of tissues on hold, just in case and I can’t wait to fully dive into the rest of the novel! Me Before You is a very different book to what I normally read but I think I need to expand my horizon a little bit! I’m loving it so far but I can’t really say much because I’ve only just started! I’m reading this as a part of The Reading Rebels! Anyway, here’s a little teaser for you guys:

” The last thing he sees is a leather glove, a face under a helmet, the shock in the man’s eyes mirroring his own. There is an explosion as everything fragments.
And then there is nothing.”
– Jojo Moyes, Me Before You

 

So, what do you guys think? Will you be picking up Me Before You, this month? Have you guys read this books before?

I’m Absolutely Loving Rose Society! Teaser Tuesdays! (16/02/16)

jij'

Hello!

It’s Teaser Tuesdays again! Woohoo! Teaser Tuesdays is basically where I tell you guys what I’m currently reading and give you a short teaser of from the novel! It’s Tuesdays and you know what that means… Shadowhunters and Teen-Wolf!! Does anyone else watch theses shows? I love Teen Wolf but I haven’t watched the latest episodes of Shadowhunters. (blame school, ahaha jks. ) Anyway, let’s get onto my current read!

I’m Currently Reading:
The Rose Society
erj3pjr

When I finished The Young Elites, I was left with a minor book hangover because the ending just left me gaping! I immediately jumped into The Rose Society and have literally been transported into this new world! I haven’t read a book this fast in February! Marie Lu is truly talented and I have so many thoughts about this novel. (I’ll definitely be putting a review soon) What I love about this novel is how complex her characters are, each one has a bit of good and a bit of bad, very much like a ying-yang. Often writers, create one-sided characters and it’s hard to find characters which are as complex as Adelina and Teren. I don’t want to give too much away, so, here is a little teaser:

” To bind us together,”
“I pledge myself to the Rose Society,” I begin, “Until the end of my days,”
One by one the others call out the same things, murmurs at first that turn into firm words.
– Marie Lu, The Rose Society

I hope you enjoyed this little teaser and I highly recommend it if you haven’t read it yet! What are you currently reading? I would love to know!!

Re-reading: Yay or Nay ❤ Bookish Talks

Untitled

Hello, Lovelies!! Re-reading. It’s something we all love to do but it’s something that we can all find a little tiresome. Don’t get me wrong re-reading a book a thousand times just expresses how much you love that series or novel but sometimes, I just can’t stand it when I have to put myself through the process of re-reading a ten book long series just to relieve the joy that will never be as joyful as the first time you read that novel. Does anyone understand what I mean??

border-grey

Why Re-Reading And I Have A Little Bit Of A Love-Hate Relationship!

Re-reading is something I rarely do and if I do re-read a novel it’s usual backed up by a strong motivation and itch to re-read the series. When I was a lot younger, I would re-read the Percy Jackson series all the time. (Yes, I have actually re-read Mark of Athena five times and I’ve read Percy Jackson and The Lightening Thief so much, I’ve memorised the order and names of the chapter titles) Everyone has re-read a novel before, whether it be a childhood one or a series you still love to this day. Re-reading is one of those things which tells someone else exactly how much you loved that book.

 However, noProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 presetw that I barely have any time and the fact that there are, “So many books but so little time,” just pulls me away from re-reading. Not only that but I hate putting myself through a book when I can already anticipate what’s going to happen next. What is the point of re-reading a book if you already know what’s going to happen next? Nevertheless, I still love my favourite books and it pains me that I can never read them again without going through the same emotional rollercoaster I rode on the first time I read the series.

There are so many books I wish I could re-read- The Infernal Devices, The Mortal Instruments, All The Bright Places and many more but knowing that I’ll never witness the same excitement and joy I felt when I first read the book is such a disappointment, which is one of the reasons why I don’t really re-read books. I’m also slightly afraid of not loving a novel anymore. When you reread something, sometimes you’ll discover that the book wasn’t even that amazing or it was actually a horribly written novel. I would hate to feel that dread in my stomach. There are so many negative reviews out there, of some of my favourite books and I don’t want to re-read a novel to discover that it was actually a novel with a shallow and cliche plotline with shallow characters.

Until recently, I discovered I was re-reading so much more than I would normally. I reread The Infinite Sea after watching The Fifth Wave and I also recently reread Lux. It was crazy, who would have thought, that someone like me, who isn’t a re-reader, was reading some of her favourite novels again. Maybe it isn’t actually too bad? However, to be fair, I did have a lot of motivation to read these books.

I read the books, fell in love with them again and I was completely amazed that re-reading a book you haven’t read could pretty much match the excitement you felt when you first read the book.

Okay so maybe I’m still slightly on the nay side for re-reading but I think if I find some motivation around the book community, I can finally find some time to sit down and re-read The Infernal Devices. I mean, I love flicking through a book and re-reading little moments but re-reading a  book could just be taking a bit far! I haven’t read Jenny Han’s The Summer I Turned Pretty since I was like 13 and I plan on re-reading it soon!  I’m still a little conflicted… should I really spend some time re-reading books or should I read some newer books and discover some amazing new ones?

Do you like re-reading books? Or are you like me, a person who would rather spend their time reading and discovering newer novels to add to their favourites list? Share your thoughts below!

Also, I have some super exciting news! I’ve just joined an awesome book club called The Reading Rebels, up on good reads! I’m so excited because I’ve met some other amazing book bloggers, vloggers and Instagrammers! I’m the new moderator for this club and you guys can join us in reading our Book Of The Month for March!! I’ve had so much fun with this group and I hope you’ll join us!

Yay!! I’m back with another Teaser Tuesdays!

This time, I’m currently reading The Young Elites by Marie Lu! I have heard so much about how amazing this series was and if you didn’t already know I had a major book hangover with Marie’s debut series: Legend! I’m so excited to start her latest series The Young Elites, which follows the story of a young girl who had fallen ill in a nationwide epidemic. When she recovers, her life is no longer the same and she is forced to live with society’s oppressive thoughts and words. However, soon she discovers she has a super power and she is one of them- a Young Elite.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Anyway, I’m currently loving this book! Have you read it before? To be honest, I was slightly skeptical to start this book. To me, it sounded like your typical young-adult dystopian- a girl discovers she has supernatural powers, she’s “special” and along her journey she falls in love. However, I read a few chapter and was captivated with this story! I asked around and I’ve heard many good opinions- maybe, I was wrong! I’m really enjoying it so far! Thank god I borrowed Rose Society as well because I think I’ll be binge reading this series!

” In the midst of darkness and panic, something moves in the sky. And just like that, the black clouds twist- they scatter into a swarm of a million moving flecks that swirl across the sky and then dive down, down, down at the crowd,”
– Marie Lu, The Young Elites

I hope you enjoyed this mini Teaser Tuesdays! What are you currently reading? Recommend some of your current reads down below:

Also, I plan on starting some discussion posts! What do you guys think?

The Life Of A Bookaholic w/ Tiffany @ tiffanybooks.com

uhoij

Hiya!!

I’m so excited today because I’m doing a bookish collaboration with Tiffany @ tiffanybook.com !! You all should definitely check out her blog and her Instagram: @fixtionolgy ! Tiffany is super nice and I had so much fun working with her. Let’s also not forget that her photography and posts are amazing! (Seriously, though, you have to go to her blog! It won’t hurt!)!

The Life Of A Bookaholic is a new little feature, which we will both be posting weekly! We will be answering two bookish Q&A questions (Don’t forget to comment below some questions) and we’ll show you three of our bookish essentials! I hope you enjoy The Life Of A Bookaholic and come back every week to see some new posts! Also, thank you for the great response I had with the Q&A questions on my Instagram (@hashtaglovebooks.alicia) we appreciate every question commented and we look forward to answering them!

border-grey

Q&A

Here are our answers to two of your Q&A questions! This week we decided to answer a few basic questions first!

question 1

Tiffany:There a literally SOOOO many beautiful quotes out there. I have a small collection of them and although I get most of them from books, I have some from movies, tv shows, even my mum! The quotes that catch my eyes are the small short ones that if you unpacked it, it could mean so many different things and not just relate to the book.One of them is from The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh, which is one of my favourite books because it’s so beautifully written; ‘Make it story worthy of you’ – it’s so simple yet it means so much. This one is always playing in my mind because everyone is unique and beautiful and deserves to have a life worthy of themselves, but no one can control what happens in your story but yourself.

Alicia: I have too many favourite quotes! Some of my favourite quotes come from The Infernal Devices and Looking For Alaska. I literally have memorised so many quotes from these books! One of the quotes that really hit me from Looking For Alaska was, “The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive,” I actually love this quote so much because I’m one of those people that constantly hold grudges and whenever I think of this quote, I always try to forgive what others have done to me!

Picture1

Tiffany: I’m currently reading The Infinite Sea (The 5th Wave #2) by Rick Yancey and it’s pretty good so far. I’ve been in a half reading slump… But my aim is to finish it by next week. I really enjoyed the 5th Wave and you can check out my review of it on my blog. The next book I plan to read is really interesting because it’s my first time reading a novel based on a true story. It’s called the Lovers and the storyline is like a real life Romeo and Juliet story based in Middle East Asia so I’m really excited to start that.

Alicia: School has literally sent me overboard and I haven’t actually read as much this month! I only just finished Cinder and I really liked it but for now, I’m going to take a break from the series. I’m currently Love Letters To The Dead by Ava Dellaria! I love the way this book is set out and I think I’m going to end up loving it!

border-grey

Picture2Here are three of your bookish essentials which we always need whilst we are reading or while we are living our Bookaholic life!

Tiffany:
I have so many reading essentials but today I’m going to focus on more of the atmospheric side of reading.

First of all, I need good lighting. Lighting is really important for me because I have horrible eyesight and my parents are constantly telling me to not read in the dark so I always have to make sure that I have a really bright light. My bedroom window points in direction of the rising sun so lots of light comes in during the morning and it light just shines on my bed and it just glows so it just makes me want to read!
Speaking of my bed…for some reason, I can’t really concentrate if I’m in a weird reading position because I’m not comfortable and usually its my neck that I seriously can’t get in a comfortable position so I definitely need heaps and heaps of pillows on my bed or I have a special chair in my living room and its just perfect for my whole body. I’ve sort of claimed it. Comment below of you can relate to needing a good reading position/spot.
Another must-have is music. I don’t listen to music with words usually unless I’m just really feeling it that day, but music (especially piano music) really gets me into the mood of reading and usually I get neutral sounding instrumental music so that it can sort of fit the feeling of the book and it makes the experience way more intense and emotional. I listened to a whole album by this artist during the time when I was reading the first 3 Throne of Glass books and arghh it just got so freaking emotional. Whenever I hear those songs, I just feel like bursting into tears because I can relate specific songs to when I read certain parts of the book.

Alicia:

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetI always need my notebook! I only just started to understand how much a notebook can be a blogger’s best friend because I constantly right notes and other bookish thoughts in my notebook. It makes it so much easier to write posts and reviews when I have all my thoughts in one notebook!

I also always need my drink bottle next to me. Yes, I am one of those people that are always thirsty and constantly drink water. I can literally sip through one drink bottle whilst I’m reading, I actually find it really satisfying! (Ahaha, call me weird!)

Another bookish essential I have is my phone because it literally has all my favourite book-tography photos from other bookstagrammers, it has screenshots of funny bookish text posts and has my Goodreads in it! This is starting to sound so superficial but seriously, my phone is always by my side! (My background is one of my favourite Looking For Alaska quotes in it!)

❤ It’s Official, I’m Reading Cinder ❤ : Teaser Tuesdays!

Hiya!
teaser tuesdays

Okay, it’s finally official, I am actually going to read Cinder!

Who’s excited? Because I am!!!! Yes, I’ve spent literally the last two years being inundated with many people telling me and exclaiming, ” OMG! The Lunar Chronicles deserves five stars because it’s amazing and everyone needs to read these books!,” So, after looking and searching for this series, I’ve finally borrowed from the library and I’m reading it! I am so excited!!! Thank you for every person who has told me to get to this series because I have high hopes!

Has any of you guys read this series or this book? I would love to know in the comments! If you haven’t read this, I would also love to know because I hope I’m not the only bookworm that hasn’t read this!So, this is another Teaser Tuesdays post! This is a meme where I tell you what I’m currently reading and how I’m enjoying it so far! I also will give you a short teaser, so you can add it to your TBR!!!

So, this is another Teaser Tuesdays post! This is a meme where I tell you what I’m currently reading and how I’m enjoying it so far! I also will give you a short teaser, so you can add it to your TBR!!!

So far, I was surprised when I read the first few chapters. It really is a hybrid and twisted story of Cinderella. What I really enjoy about this book, is the fact that you can see the parallels to the Cinderella story, yet, it seems like a very different story. The setting is in New Beijing and this story kind of reminds me of a “Choose of your own adventure,”. Every element of this book is so beautifully twisted and different, to cater to young-adult readers that it’s very much like reading a fairy-tale! The storyline and characters are much more complex and you can clearly see the contrast! I haven’t read much, though, so I can’t come to conclusions so quickly!

“There they waited, Cinder breathing as shallowly as possible, until they heard the sirens of the emergency hover come and take Sacha away,”
– Marissa Meyer, Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1)
