Cress by Marissa Meyer

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The third book in The Lunar Chronicles is full of so many adventures that it keeps you on the edge from the beginning to the end. It is amazing how an author can create this fantastic world and suck you in it like you are part of the story.

They have to stop the wedding between her and Prince Kai, but it is not that easy.

A Reason to Live by T.K. Chapin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t normally read Christian books, for no specific reason, but I must say that I might start to do so. This romantic story made me feel like there is much more to a romance book than the relationship between a man and a woman.

Jonathan and Kylie found each other when both needed guidance. Throughout the book the mention of God and Jesus made me feel closer to my faith. It made me think that God does work in mysterious ways, even though this is a fictional story, these things can actually happen in real life.

Cold Betrayal by A.J. McCarthy

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First I want to make it very clear that I loved this book. So very much.

I must say though that I’m so happy that I didn’t read the Goodreads description before reading the book. Talking about spoilers…
My review has some spoilers…I think…πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ˜Œ

The book is based in Quebec, which happens to be the province of Canada in which I live…yayyyy. Don’t worry this is not the only reason why I loved the book 😌 . The story made me feel so many things and I think at one point I wanted to stop reading it because I was so confused by my feelings. Luckily I read a kindle edition, otherwise I could have easily thrown the book into a wall out of frustration.

One? by Jennifer L. Cahill
My Review:

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received this book from the author for an honest review. And here it goes. 😊

It was a bit hard in the beginning to get used to the style of writing. I believe that I never read a book in which the author was going deep into the characters mind. Even though in the beginning it was strange to read their thoughts, once I got used to it it was actually pretty interesting and I appreciated the fact that I can know what was going on through their mind.

#bookreview … Siamoises by Michel Canesi & Jamil Rahmani (French)

Siamoises by Michel canesi & jamil rahmani

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I got this book at a library sale for 1$. When I looked at the cover, which represents a bunch of Russian puppets, and when I read the description on the back cover, I somehow knew that I have to read it.

Marie and Sophie are sisters that love each other very much. Right at the beginning of the book the family is passing through a tragedy, their father just passed away. The age of both girls is not mentioned but it is clear that they are both close to puberty. It is pretty obvious that they are greatly affected by the loss of their father, it seems like they had a great connection. This event is deciding the paths that they are taking, as it is in that precise moment that they decide their career.

The book is written from both girls perspective. The chapters are really called ‘Marie’ or ‘Sophie’ so the reader knows exactly what they are doing almost at the same time.

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
My Review:

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Scarlet is the second book in The Lunar Chronicles and it is even better than Cinder. If like me, you had a hard time understanding the first book and you were not really able to connect with the characters, well let me tell you this: Scarlet will not disappoint you!
