This series was so freaking phenomenal that I’m really sad it’s over. From the beginning, Mafi’s writing style captivated me and I’m not really one to appreciate poetic prose, but she somehow made it work for me and a few pages into the first...more

I really liked this novella. It was a huge eye-opener. I realized a lot of things in these short sixty or so pages. First of all, I really liked that we get to see what was happening with the rest of the crew when they lost Juliette. I would’v...more

This was a good book; it left me with that feeling of satisfaction that I really like to experience when finishing a book. This one has been on my shelf for 3-4 years and for some reason I just kept avoiding it until now, but I’m glad I finall...more

I don’t know what this book was. I’d read a couple of Sarah Dessen’s books before and I really liked them, because the characters were so relatable and authentic, but in this one they were just awful.

I disliked every character in the story, e...more

This wasn’t exactly what I was expecting… I mean I enjoyed it, but I kept waiting for the moment when the two girls finally meet and talk in person and I’m sort of disappointed that I didn’t get it. I felt kind of betrayed, like I’d read a rea...more

I was really on board with this book since I read the premise. It sounded so good, I expected it to be kind of like The Hunger Games or Divergent action-wise but set on a contemporary world. I mean it was really promising, but sadly it was rea...more

This book gave me mixed feelings. On one hand, it was full of action, plot twists in every corner and there were a lot of things happening all the time, so it was not a boring book. On the other hand, a lot of the characters I loved from the f...more
