I think it’s time to focus on some poetry this time. Contemporary poetry. I chose Love and Misadventures by Leav Lang because the cover is absolutely adorable, I mean look at this:
I love poetry but contemporary poetry is my favorite and I always devour the poems. This book sent Lang Leav to a special place in my heart and I can’t wait to read some more but I have to take it slow cause I don’t wanna read all of them in a single day lol.
I’ve read many bad reviews about this one and I sincerely don’t get it. I know it’s not your typical shakespearian and sophisticated play of words but it really does its job, it makes you feel things. It sends you on a rollercoaster and it’s full of emotions. It’s so crazy relatable to a lot of us, it was an amazing read.
No it doesn’t have complex poems but I don’t think you need complexity when you know how to write and what to say and the author nailed it. The words are real and raw from the heart. No time to pretend.
I thought this blog was missing a little chick lit and some contemporary romance so I’m gonna start with my all time favorite chick lit writer and the series that made me start reading this kind of books (I used to despise them): Jenny Han’s Summer series (The Summer I Turned Pretty, It’s Not Summer Without You, We’ll Always Have Summer).
I’m writing a general review for them.
I’m not sure if I would keep the same rating now (I’ve read this book 3 years ago) but it is a good book for anyone who enjoys the type of coming of age love story and a typical setting: the beach.
I closed my eyes to those clicheic details because you know, the plot got me and Jenny’s writing style makes you want to read more. She always adds serious drama (not a Kardashian-like drama. I’m talking about death and issues teens have to face, more relatable) but she always comes back to cuteness and you can’t help but get attached to at least one of the characters.
It’s not something I haven’t seen before but it’s good enough for an easy summer reading.
Welly welly welly I’ve seen this book a lot…in bookstores, on Goodreads, on pages related to literature so I gave it a shot: K.A. Tucker’s Ten Tiny Breaths.
I missed reading some chick lit combined with romance (of course) annnnnd a drop of drama. But not a drama THIS serious. I thought of a drop of drama, something clicheic, just to add some seriousness to the romance, meh…
YEAH SURE. This was a real deal. Not just two youngsters falling in love and some complicated stuff happen. It made me believe that those events are true.
Sometimes I’m more harsh with the main character in chick flicks and romance books because they’re usually drama queens without a reason and they’re annoying as shit…but whenever I tried to think of Kacey as being overly dramatic I just kinda felt like I actually understand her and that whatever behavior she had, it was expected from her to act like that.
There’s also a crazy plot twist that amazed me and I didn’t really expect it. Congrats to Kathleena for this book. The whole plot is on point. I recommend it as an easy addictive reading.
Ah, my most recent read and the book that I keep thinking of, Victoria Aveyard’s Red Queen.
Rating: 5/5 of course.
No wonder this is a pretty popular book. It took me on a roller coaster of feelings and it has the perfect kind of adventure that I expected for such a long time.
This book turns very easily from fantasy to thriller. And that’s pretty dangerous if you’re gonna be attached to it just like I was.
When I thought at the beginning that I don’t know how this book is different from other books with conflicts between inferior and superior societies, BANG, I’ve been served some mutants…and superpowers…and wars…and rebellion…betrayals…and a love triangle (of course, of course, you can’t escape this).
I’m so curious about the sequel, I don’t know how I will resist until I get it.
