My marshmallow!
The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line - Jennifer Graham,Rob Thomas

So it took me forever to read this not because I didn't like it, but because there's always that period in a year where I just kind of stop reading. Not on purpose, but I guess something in me seeks a break from reading so it just happens. I'm glad I finally did finish this, though, because I enjoyed Veronica Mars as much as I (still) enjoy a TV show as well as the movie. I can't wait to read the next one. Keep being awesome and everything will be sunshine and rainbows. :D

Horrorscape - Nenia Campbell
Horrorscape - Nenia Campbell

I. need. a. third. book. right. now. Damn you Amazon for banning it and this godforsaken country in the middle of nowhere. I'm just going to cry now.

 

I'll be scarred for life. Again. I swear everyone is a creepy stalker after this book. If I start having nightmares, Nenia, I blame you. I need, like, a proper rest after this.

 

((I swear, someday I'll write a normal review to one of these books, but today, I blame it on sickness.))

 

((Also I just realized Nenia is the same age as my brother and still, she's way cooler than him. I'm always stuck with brooding, boring people. Just my luck.))

One Man Guy - Michael Barakiva
One Man Guy - Michael Barakiva
So, basically, I'm fully, completely, utterly in love with this book and the only thing I wish for is that there was more. I ravished this in a span of few hours and cancelled every plan I had today so I could do so. It is funny, adorable, witty and beautiful in a way and I'm so so happy that I read it that I can't even describe it. 
 
This is that kind of a book that rises so many different emotions in you and you don't know what you're feeling sometimes or how to handle it all. You keep flipping pages after pages and chapters after chapters and you're getting happier and sadder and all fuzzy and warm inside and when you realize that this is it, this is the end, you're all over the place and you're smiling but you feel like crying and it's just a huge mess of emotions. Personally, I like those books the best. I like the books that take all of my focus away from errors, or flaws, or whatever else there is and focus only on the emotion and the characters and the story. 
 
And may I say, I loved characters here more than anything. I liked how every one each of them had their own complex personality. I liked how all of them changed throughout the book, not only Alek. It was a pleasure watching it (or better to say, reading it) happening. Also, it was almost surprising that I didn't find any character that I actually disliked which is quite weird because there is at least one in each book. This book gets a shoutout for awesome characters as well as their development.
 
Another thing that I liked was that I got to find out more about the culture and people I didn't know a lot of. We get these small and big parts of Armenian culture described throughout the story and it's just one more thing I admire the author of doing. It's a great way to inform a reader about some things that they may not know or didn't know well. (The receipt thing at the end had me smiling so big my face split in two. It was adorable.)
 
Moreover, I liked the tone of this book. At the same time, it was light and careless and deep and emotional. It definitely left me in a state some book rarely does and I couldn't find it any flaw, no matter how hard I tried. It deserves all of these 5 stars and even more.
 
Also, another shoutout for Michael Barakiva and a great music taste. As soon as I read a name 'Rufus Wainwright' I went to Youtube search to find his songs (even though I should've probably heard of him before but I blame the smallness and isolation of this country I live in for that) and now I have One Man Guy on repeat which is kind of an unhealthy thing happening to me very often with specific songs. It's the kind of music that I adore and that's very close to my heart so yes, thank you, Sir.
 
Overall, please, please, please read this book and enjoy it as much as I did because believe me, you won't regret it.

The Winner's Curse - Marie Rutkoski
The Winner's Curse (Winner's Trilogy, #1) - Marie Rutkoski
There are these rare moments where I read a book and I'm left speechless and emotional and so damn happy that I want to jump around and scream in everyone face's to read that book. This was one of those moments.
 
This was wonderfully written book that had me turning pages till early hours in the morning. I enjoyed every second of it and the only thing I'd want is for it to be longer - or that there is a  sequel at least. 
 
The world building is done amazingly. That is a rare thing to find in most YA novels so I was pleasantly surprised by this. I could easily imagine every little detail and every little thing described as well. Like I said in one of my other reviews, I don't usually like historical fiction. I don't read it often but books like this one change everything I have ever thought about it and make me want to find more great historical novels. This is my second so far that I actually liked so maybe, my opinion will change soon even more.
 
 
Even a few days after finishing this, I still don't know what to say. It's one of my favourite books I've read and I just wish I was able to describe it properly but it's just not working. I am apologizing for this. I wish there were words to describe this the way it deserves to be described but right now, I can find none. I just hope this book will get success it deserves because it's truly one of the best YA novels written.

Half Bad - Sally Green
Half Bad (Half Life Trilogy) - Sally Green
It doesn't happen very often that some book leaves me speechless but this one has certainly done that. This is kind of a book that keeps you turning pages till the very end. This is kind a of book that I was hiding my phone for in a school to read at least two more pages. It's gripping, powerful and it had me interested from the first sentence.
 
I know that a lot of people had a problem with writing style and such but for me, it was something that added a certain touch to the book, made it even more gripping and even more unforgettable. I liked seeing what was going on inside of Nathan's head, loved reading it from the second and first point of view. It made me connect to Nathan more as well as the story itself.
 
This book is brutal. It doesn't hold anything back. It describes Nathan locked up in a cage, describes the way he's tortured, shows just how merciless the "good guys" are and it works perfectly. Every character is developed  in their own way. None of them are only "good" or "evil". Every one of them is complex and sometimes hard to figure out. I loved that. I loved the way that the author brought each character to us - the way they were presented. It's hard to find that sometimes and I end up disappointed but this didn't happen here at all.
 
The only thing I wish for is that there is more. It was probably a bad idea to go and read this book straight away because I'll probably wait for the next one for too long. I'm willing to wait, though. This book is worth it. Definitely one of my favourites and I can't wait for more!
