The singles game by Lauren Weisberger

Genre: Adult, Romance, Contemporary

Rating: Did not finish

(Review)

(DISCLAIMER: This review is based on my opinion only.)

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)

My new crush gave to me by Shani Petroff

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.

Anime Review: Grancrest Senki (4 stars)

Anime Review: Grancrest Senki/ Record of the Grancrest war (4 stars)

download.jpg


Genre: Action, Fantasy, Romance

Number of episodes: 24 (Completed)

Rating: 4/5 stars

(Review)

In a waring world where the strongest wins, Siluca is a mage and she meets Theo who wants to become a Lord to save his hometown. He has a crest and needs more to grow stronger. She decides to pair up with him and is contracted to him.

The story definitely felt very confusing at first, but more is explained as you continue watching. The drawing style is nice and music was dramatic and intense, helping to bring out the vibes of each specific scene. It actually feels like a high-fantasy Josei anime.

I really like Aishela’s character design! I loved how good the characters all looked. I love that Siluca is determined and she isn’t afraid to stoop to any level to get the job done. I was pretty sure I was swooning over most of the guys in this anime, haha. Although Theo is not very strong physically wise, I really respect that he really stands by his morales in a world where everyone is determined to get stronger. Alexis was such a pleasing character to watch.

Red queen combined with the Arcana Chronicles. This anime reminds me of Utawarerumono.

An anime with tons of crazy battles, loyalty and unexpected allies. Graphic level until blood and flying body parts but not very grotesque. It definitely shows the harsh truth of war and sacrifice. The pacing at the start was good, but it gets darker in the middle of the anime. I actually went in not expecting any romance at all, so I was glad to see that there actually was!

That Romeo and Juliet romance between Marrine and Alexis is so sad. I was literally finding characters to ship throughout this entire series.

I was so glad that there was a happy ending. Overall, I really liked the characters and the entire story arc.

The Blood Prince (Sovereign #3) by Josie Jaffrey COVER REVEAL

When I got the email for the cover reveal I WAS SO EXCITED and couldn’t wait to show the cover to you guys!

 

If you haven’t checked out the Sovereign series, I suggest you start with the Solis Invicti series first! Since it’s set in the same world with recurring characters! (It just had a cover revamp and the colours look AWESOME!)

If you love vampires, dystopian worlds, romance and fantastic storytelling, definitely check out the Solis Invicti before starting the Sovereign series!

The Blood Prince is the 3rd book in the Sovereign series and if I’m not wrong, the last book (hopefully not) of the series! I can’t wait for the events and to return to the world!

Are you already as eager as me to see the cover? (To be honest that isn’t really fair since I’ve seen it already, but, hold your breaths!)

Exhale while taking a look at the official blurb for this book!

 

BLURB:

The price of freedom is always paid in blood

The sovereigns of the Silver have awakened, but the Queen is a fractured shell of the woman Cam remembers. He hopes to put her back together by finding her son, the missing prince. At least, that’s what he tells his friends when he leaves for the Red.

Back in the Blue, Julia’s old tormentor Rufus is hounding her at every turn. She’s sick of feeling powerless, but she has a plan that will bring the Nobles to their knees.

All she needs is blood.

 

This is literally me after reading the blurb XD (2 more gifs before you let out the breath that you didn’t know you have been holding XD)

 

(Just a little more you guys!)

 

Then, HERE IS THE COVER FOR THE BLOOD PRINCE!

Book review: Isla and the happily ever after (Anna and the french kiss #3) by Stephanie Perkins (5 stars)

“Because I thought that no one could love me.”

Isla and the happily ever after (Anna and the french kiss #3) by Stephanie Perkins

Genre: YA, Romance, Contemporary

Rating: 5 stars

(Review)

(DISCLAIMER: This review is based on my opinion only.)

Isla is a quiet artist who has a crush on Josh. And as they embark on their senior years in France, Isla realises that not everyone gets their happily ever after.

Out of all the characters in the trilogy, Isla has to be the one I relate to the most. She’s shy and quiet and even acts like a mum most of the time. I was literally yelling “this is so me” most of the time throughout the book.

I love that Josh is really nice and that he talks to Isla to understand Kurt (Isla’s best friend)’s asperger’s instead of judging Kurt like everyone else in school.

I also really symphatized with Isla throughout the book and my heart broke for her so many times. I found so much of myself within Isla, like being short and also being a middle child.

The ending of this book left me in tears (and I was knitting while crying) so that made me feel really weird. I really liked how the entire trilogy was ended with this book. I loved that each couple and character is unique, yet all their stories intertwine together to form a big complete puzzle when the stories are done.
