The Raven Boys by Maggie StiefvaterMy rating: 3 of 5 stars Read more bookish goodness on my book blog: Cal’s YA Reads 3/5 stars. I promise I would’ve loved this if;1. It wasn’t ONLY available on my phone in tiny font (I love reading on my kindle; but on the iPhone it just makes my eyes hurt).2. It wasn’t a 40°C day and I’m melting. It was just super hard to follow… Read More

How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire by Kerrelyn SparksMy rating: 3 of 5 stars Read more bookish goodness on my book blog: Cal’s YA Reads 3/5 stars. It could’ve been worse; but it could’ve been better. It actually wasn’t as bad as I thought it’d be. But this was published in 2005, and since 2005– the world of vampire FanFiction was evolved, and my standards have too. Honestly it wasn’t as cringey… Read More

I have sat on my bed for half an hour trying to gather my thoughts. Any spoilers ahead will be tagged, if possible. Overall, this book was good. I’ve been reading a lot… Read More

I’m in the last hundred pages of Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare; and I don’t want it to end. We have to wait TWO YEARS for the ending. I can already feel myself dying. I’ll be in my 20s by then??????????????????????????????????????????????????? CASSIE; GURL. I AM NOT OKAY WITH THAT.

The Chemist by Stephenie MeyerMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Read more bookish goodness on my book blog: Cal’s YA Reads 4/5 stars. This was such an awesome read! For anybody having doubts because, ohhh, it’s written by the Twilight author– forget about it. This is adult fiction at its finest! It was written beautifully and smoothly, such a pleasant read. It had some humorous scenes, but what I loved most was… Read More

Never Always Sometimes by Adi AlsaidMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Read more bookish goodness on my book blog: Cal’s YA Reads 4.5/5 stars. I loved it! It’s promoted like CRAZY for “John Green fans”. I’ll tell you what: it’s even better than John Green. It’s his work; but with realistic, un-pretentious teenagers, who have decent epiphanies (okay JGreen still has good writing, in just saying, I have a slight disdain to… Read More

Masquerade by Melissa de la CruzMy rating: 2 of 5 stars Read more bookish goodness on my book blog: Cal’s YA Reads 2/5 stars. This was better than the last. But to quote page 155: “Yawwwn”. View all my reviews

Revelations by Melissa de la CruzMy rating: 2 of 5 stars Read more bookish goodness on my book blog: Cal’s YA Reads 2/5 stars. I do admit, these do get better the further you go along the series. However the main issue is; they have so many subplots and other lives BUT ONLY 200 PAGES??? It is not going in nearly enough detail. It’s pathetic. View all my reviews

The Van Alen Legacy by Melissa de la CruzMy rating: 3 of 5 stars Read more bookish goodness on my book blog: Cal’s YA Reads 2.5/5 stars. That’s right. This is the first one that I’ve actually raised the rating. This instalment was way better than the rest! I enjoyed the tension and build up. It wasn’t AS predictable. View all my reviews

Blue Bloods by Melissa de la CruzMy rating: 2 of 5 stars Read more bookish goodness on my book blog: Cal’s YA Reads 2/5 stars. I’m super disappointed in this one. I thought I’d like it so much I borrowed half the series. I’m still going to read on, but please note: I also DNF this within the first 20 pages. It’s bland, it’s dull, predictable and poorly constructed. It’s like a… Read More

Me Before You by Jojo MoyesMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Read more bookish goodness on my book blog: Cal’s YA Reads 3.5/5 stars. From the reviews I knew it was going to be a sad ending. And I like Will’s choice. It was sucky, but I respected him a lot. I think I would relate to his attitude. And yes. This all happened within 6 month. You know what? I still… Read More

Good evening, bookworms. TGIF! I hope you’ve had a productive week. I just spent 11hrs doing my EDUC assignment, Aboriginal Studies homework, and other readings for history classes. I’m knackered. My legs won’t stop quivering. I was so tense… My reward? I reborrowed the entire series of Throne of Glass.  That’s right ladies and gents; I’m giving this series another go. Why? I simply adored SJM’s other series; ACOTAR. You can read my… Read More
