A Book for My Thoughts


Image result for writing gifs

Hi!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

I would be so pleased to accept books for review from authors and publishers of any genre but I particularly enjoy Young Adult and New Adult Literature. I also read:

  • Fantasy,
  • Poetry,
  • Contemporary,
  • Autobiographical Novel
  • Psychological/Horror/Gothic, and
  • Graphic Novels

I read and review e-books (occasionally) in my own free will but please take note that I accept books in paperback, hardcover or ARC version only. Why? Because a physical copy of a book is always easier to carry around in public and I can show it off on the bus, in school or anywhere I choose to read (giving it a free added advertisement).

My review will have 3 major parts: the book summary (from Goodreads), my thoughts about the book, and the Meet the Author part. However, I might add some extra details if needed.

I will be discussing my personal experience reading the book, whether good or bad. I will always present honest and unbiased reviews– it means that I do not guarantee a positive review if I, unfortunately, didn’t like the book. I will see to it that my reviews and opinion about the book/s will not be grounded on my relationship with the author or publisher involved.

After I review your book, I will send you a direct link to my review via e-mail, as well as inform you of which sites my review has been posted on. My review of the book will appear on the Book Reviews section of this blog, my Twitter and Goodreads account.


RATING SYSTEM


I will use a system of 1-5 flowers and I will explain my reasons for liking or disliking the book in my review.

I had really high hopes for this one but it hung below the line of my expectations. It has a lot of potential, but the icing on top was missing. I might still re-read this but I’m not really sure. Still recommended.

(You won’t really need it in your life to buy a copy of it so if you want to read it, you could just borrow the title from your friends or from the library.)

tumblr_mj0pswo4xz1rm6jd7o1_500It just didn’t bring me there. I tried so hard to keep up with the book. The writing style, characters and details were below my standards.There was nothing I remotely liked about the characters or the story, and I only finished it because I either forced myself to or I just wanted to see if it would improve, but it didn’t. Sigh.

Did Not Finish (DNF) – Translation: God. Why.
