I am not a feminist.

Your eyes probably grew wide with surprise and cocked your eyebrows in a “wtf?” way when you read that. Let me say it again:

I am not a feminist; this does not mean that I am an anti-feminist. I just do not—in any way, shape, or fo

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Perhaps I'm being too generous with giving Fangirl three stars. I didn't hate this book, but I didn't like it that much either. I suppose I was expecting something much more than from what I received. This book was all the rage last year; I've been w ...more

Oh, Marie Lu, you've hurt me. You've hurt me bad. (view spoiler)

I was going to make this review an absolute bias one and mark it one star only because I didn't get what I wanted from this (view spoiler)

There's always that particular series that just hits me right in the feels; that last installment of a series that lifts this huge weight from my body from all that built up excitement, anxiousness, anger, and sadness I was carrying throughout the no ...more

***Review in both French and English***

Mon avis en français :

La lecture commence plutôt froidement et sans espoir : le mari de Amy Dunne, Nick, nous raconta de la tête de sa femme… et ce qui est à l‘intérieur. Amy Dunne est perdue—manquant, en fait.

Mon avis en français :

Il me faut admettre que je suis plutôt jalouse à chaque fois que j’entends ou lis à propos des voyages de quelqu’un en Europe. Mon continent préféré est l'Europe. Je l’adore. Le fait que l'Europe consiste en de nombreux pays co

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

"If I stay. If I live. It’s up to me."

Giving this a two star rating genuinely hurts me. I adore Forman's writing, especially with Just One Day, she did an excellent job with the showing of the setting in Paris and even for that one chapter in the UK.

Mon petit avis en français :

Franchement, je suis tellement déçue. Les années 20 m’intéressent beaucoup à cause de la musique, de la mode, du langage, et de l’époque en général. Par contre, je n’en ai pas du tout reçu. Enzo (un homme principal) était

Well, damn. Sins & Needles was a deliciously dark read.

I always complain about living in this era. I've always wanted to live either in the Roaring '20s or back in the Medieval Times (and I'm well aware of the struggles in those days, too). I co
