After a horrible cyber-bullying case, Riley is sure she has hit rock bottom. When the opportunity to take part in a game show arises, she leaps at the chance to fix her social standing and prove her worth. In a matter of days, she finds herself on Black Rock island, pitted against 19 other teenagers to win a Survivor style game.

As the story progressed, I like that Riley was an observer and determined to find the treasure while being an unintentional manipulator. I love that she definitely thinks things through before acting.

I’ve never been a big fan of Survivor (The TV series) since there was so much betrayal and drama, this book is similar to it, but I absolutely LOVED this book! There were so many twists and turns and betrayals, as a reader I was also confused as to what was happening, in a good way of course.

The story was very unexpected, but really thrilling and fun at the same time. I think this book works really well as a standalone novel, but I definitely would want to read more if there were other books.

“I’m not trying to be good at dying, Tyler. I’m trying to minimise the damage I’m leaving behind.”

Swayzi has an unknown illness and is dying. But then she meets her cure, Daylan. The fate of a magical world is in her hands, and will be saved if she leaves with Daylan. But her love for Tyler is holding her back.

Personally, I wasn’t a fan of the love triangle. I actually preferred Daylan, but it was obvious that Swayzi was in love with Tyler. But I feel that Tyler only confessed when she was better and I felt that it was ill-timed.

I enjoyed the story progression, but was not a fan of the insta-love between the characters. I did feel that the world building was okay, but it was more on the vague side. I did feel that the pacing of the book was pretty messy and didn’t feel that the book was very memorable, not to mention I wasn’t a fan of the characters.

Zera is a heartless and she serves the witch Nightsinger. When Nightsinger offers Zera a deal, Prince Lucien’s heart in exchange for her own, she leaps at the opportunity. But as their two stories intertwine, they both find something more unexpected and challenging in the midst.

I heard a ton of good things about this book and was surprised that I actually really enjoyed this book as well.

Imagine To kill a kingdom merged with The Selection.

The ending of this book had me wanting to read the next one immediately! I really like the characters, the deep world building and like the dark and gritty writing style of this book! I could definitely see why a ton of others who read it loved the book. I would definitely read the 2nd book and would recommend this to all fans of fantasy novels.

Book review: The singles game by Lauren Weisberger (Did not finish)

Charlie is a tennis player who signs a deal with the devil since she wants to achieve something greater.

I was pretty sure that this book should be categorized under adult, but I found it in the YA section of my local library. I ended up reading until page 121 before deciding not to finish the book. At first, the synopsis was interesting, but as I read on, I found my interest slowly fading away. I wasn’t a fan of the slow pacing and I didn’t care for the characters at all.

Book review: My new crush gave to me by Shani Petroff (3.5 stars)

After a sudden break up with her ex, Charlie is determined to get Teo to go with her to the Christmas Ball. So she hatches a plan to rig the Secret Santa game to make sure she can win his heart over with five gifts. She enlists the help of J.D., Teo’s cousin to get the perfect gifts, but as she spends more time with the easygoing and spontaneous J.D., her feelings start to waver.

This book is definitely a good read for the festivities, but it was kinda predictable since I did predict everything that happened. Nonetheless, it was still a very cute festive read and the book plays with the troupe from enemies to lovers.

I like that J.D. and Charlie’s relationship was really progressive and slow, going from enemies to friends before finally becoming lovers.
