Every Day by David Levithan

Annike: Hey guys, so today I wanted to review a book I actually read late last year called Every Day by David Levithan. The reason that I started reading this was actually because I saw the trailer on Youtube and thought it looked really interesting – though Goodreads reviews maybe weren’t as promising. All the same, I decided to get it on my computer and give it a try. I have heard many good things about David Levithan but this is my first proper novel of his so that was also a driving factor. I am happy to say that I did really enjoy this book, it was quick and easy while also being extremely intriguing so without further ado, let’s get onto the review. (more…)

Annike’s Favourite 5 Books of 2017!

Annike: Hey guys, so similarly to last year, Zoe and I are going to do 2 separate posts that’ll go up together for our favourite books of the year. So these are our last blog posts of 2017 – which is crazy. This year I read 94 books in total. 22 of which were audiobooks (!) and the rest which I read in hard cover. This was actually the first year I started listening to books and they were great considering I have so little time to properly read. And surprisingly I only had 6 books that I have 5 stars, so either I’m getting a bit stingy or my reading year wasn’t as good as it was last year. So without further ado, let’s get onto my favourite books of 2017 and some honourable mentions at the end. (more…)

The Realm of Possibility by David Levithan

Annike: Hey guys! It’s been a long time since I’ve been on here with a review, but even though I can’t yet proclaim myself out of my reading slump – I am really trying to get back into reading as the holidays are now upon us! This week I have a book that’s a little different from my usual ones mainly because it is more of a book of poems than an actual novel and is called The Realm of Possibility by David Levithan. So without further ado let’s get onto it. (more…)

Gemini by Sonya Mukherjee

Annike: Hey guys, I wanted to quickly say that we decided to skip our TBR of this month just because we didn’t think it was particularly necessary – even though we will continue to do it just didn’t feel like it this month. Anyways, today I am here with a review on a book called Gemini by Sonya Mukherjee. You might have seen it in the September Wrap Up post we did quite little while ago and I wanted to tell you guys a little about what I thought of it. (more…)

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

Annike:  So When Dimple Met Rishi is a book that has been very hyped over WordPress and because of this hype I went into this book with very high expectations. I was hoping for a story that really hooked me but I think it fell a little short at the end. Today I just wanted to review this book and let you know some of the things that I thought about the book in comparison to some other reviews I have read around. (more…)
