The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

I am not sure how Maggie Stiefvater does it but every time I read one of her books I fall a little bit more in love with her writing. To say that I enjoyed The Raven Boys would be a gross understatement. I absolutely loved every minute of it and was so disappointed when I got to the end (and so relieved that I waited until the second book The […]

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

I have had the biggest smile on my face since I finished reading Anna and the French Kiss. It was just what I was in the mood for since I have been going through a spell of heavier, more angst-ridden books lately. I really loved this and now cannot wait to read the follow-up Lola and the Boy Next Door. Anna and the French Kiss revolves around a girl called Anna (funnily enough!) […]
