Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

So for the first 3 days of BookTubeAThon I read the Shatter Me trilogy. Like many other books I read during BTAT, my impression was pretty meh.

Review: The Melody of You and Me

The premise of The Melody of You and Me (TMOYAM) promises a sweet novella about two girls falling in love in a bookstore. Amazing, isn't it?

Review: The Siren by Kiera Cass

The Siren by Kiera Cass Published by HarperTeen in January 2016 (org. 2009) Genre: Fantasy, young adult, romance I didn't have very high expectations of this book.
