June 2017- TBR

Hey guys! We have been really motivated and productive these last two months and have been slowly getting through our never ending TBR at a fast pace! We are hoping with our June TBR that we can continue this streak. Our TBR consists of books that we either bought ourselves, were sent from publishers or received as gifts! 😊

We will leave a link to all of these books so that you will be able to read the blurb of the following titles:

  1. ‘Girl on the Verge’ by Pintip Dunn. Kensington Books kindly sent us an ebook copy of this book to review. It sounds really interesting.
  2. The Elite’ by Kiera Cass. Continuing on with our re-read of this series. We recently re-read ‘The Selection’ also by Kiera Cass. Review found here.
  3. Laurinda’ by Alice Pung. We have been wanting to read this ever since we first received it in the mail last month. We are really excited for this read, thank you again to Black Inc for sending us a copy to review.
  4. ‘Pointe, Claw’ by Amber, J. Keyser. We recently received this in the mail. Thank you to Walker Books Australia for sending us this book to review. We are really looking forward to reading this.
  5. ‘Begin, End, Begin: A# LoveOz YA Anthology’. We have heard so many great reviews from this book and from constant recommendations from the bookstagram community. We finally went and bought ourselves a copy!
  6. ‘Caraval’ by Stephanie Garber. This is another book that we have also heard a lot of great reviews on. We are really excited for this read and we can’t wait to pick up a copy of the ‘Night Circus’ by Erin Morgenstern in the future.
  7. ‘The Hate U Give’ by Angie Thomas. We have been wanting to read this for a while. This book was constantly recommended to us and we can’t wait to get stuck into it!

Fingers crossed we will get through all of these. What’s on your June TBR? Let us know in the comments!

Until next time,

May 2017 – Wrap Up

How crazy has this month been? We were very busy and productive this month. With the month flying by so fast, we managed to read through a total of 11 books! This is our personal best for our monthly TBR stacks! We really loved the majority of the books that were read this month.

Now onto the books that we have read:

‘When Dimple Met Rishi’ by Sandhya Menon.

With the recent release of ‘When Dimple Met Rishi’, we were so thankful to Hachette Australia for sending us an ebook copy to review! Whilst we have been making an effort to read more diversely, we became particularly intrigued with the novel when we learned that the novel featured two Indian protagonists as it’s two main characters.

Book Rating: 4.5/5 Stars.

April 2017- Wrap Up

    April 2017 Wrap Up.

I can’t believe we are in May already? The year keeps flying by too quickly!! For the majority of last month, we were reading almost every day with the occasional breaks for school/university related assignments. For our April TBR, we managed to get through 6 books!

Let’s get into the books that we read!

1. Everything Everything, by Nicola Yoon.

4/5 stars.

Everything, Everything has quickly become one of our favourite books in YA literature! Everything, Everything focuses on a young woman’s self- discovery of herself and adapting to her world around her. Nicola Yoon has done an amazing job in portraying the likeness of her characters making them more imaginable and relatable to everyday teenagers.

2. We Are Okay, by Nina LaCour.

4/5 Stars.

After falling in love with this absolutely beautiful cover, we couldn’t wait to start flipping through pages. This was an extremely fast read which focused on forgiveness, hope     and coming to terms with the past.

To find out more, read our review here!

r13.  Replica, by Lauren Oliver

4/5 Stars.

Replica, by Lauren Oliver does an amazing job demonstrating the difference between the inner struggle with our outer appearances. It’s unusual to find a book that gives you a choice regarding reading experience, and Replica does this remarkably!

To find out more, read our review here!

red queen 2 #4. Red Queen, by Victoria Aveyard.

5/5 Stars.

We were truly impressed by Victoria Aveyard’s writing style throughout the novel. We would come across a passage and the words would be electrifying! We fell in love with the characters over the course of this novel.

To find out more, read our review here!

ray of life edited pic5. Ray of Light, by Elle Scott.

5/5 stars.

The way this book was set out with distinctive character perspectives raised important issues in which created great plot twists. We just couldn’t put this book down and we felt that we were on this fantastic and unforgettable adventure along with the characters!

 To find out more, read our review here!

the call 26.  ‘The Call’ by Peadar O’Guilin.

4/5 stars.

We loved ‘The Call’ and it’s unique, thrilling horrors which allowed our adrenaline to run wild! It’s also a beautiful book in the way it manages to portray love and that it never loses hope.
