Playlist for the Dead

Playlist for the Dead by Michelle Falkoff is an easy to read book and even though it’s based on a suicide story, I like the fact that it doesn’t focus only on the main character’s feelings.

Rating: 3/5.

The Jenny Han fever.

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.

Rating: 5/5

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.

Seize them. Feel them. Love them.

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.

Rating: 4/5.

“I could set this world on fire and call it rain”

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.
