True Calling by Siobhan Davis – REVIEW

DevicesThis novel was sent to me by the author to read and give an honest review, so thank you so much Siobhan!

This is the first book in a trilogy. I read it on my Kindle. 

Published: July 28th 2014

Publisher: Self published

Pages: 400 pages (paperback)





Synopsis by the publisher:

Planet Novo, nestled in space twelve hundred miles above the surface of the Earth, is the new home of 17-year-old Cadet Ariana Skyee. Confused by the government-sanctioned memory erase and distressed at her impending forced marriage and motherhood, Ariana’s plans for the future are thrown into complete disarray.

As the traumatic events within her family life enfold, Ariana grows increasingly alarmed at the authorities apparent pre-occupation with her and feels progressively more isolated and alone.

Her growing feelings for fellow Cadet Cal Remus intensify as the recently announced pageant, ‘The Calling’, gets underway. Struggling to comprehend the continuous, inexplicable dreams of the mysterious Zane, discovering the past helps shape her future, with devastating personal consequences.

The Writing

I did not find Siobhan’s writing style to be extremely unique, but True Calling is still written in a way that really grabs a hold of you and refuses to let go.

Well written, but I wished that she would have taken the time to describe the surroundings even more just to get an even better view of Novo.

The Characters

Ariana was a strong and well made main character that I enjoyed to follow throughout this book. I had some minor issues about how fast her feelings for Cal changed and felt it was a bit unrealistic. But love works in mysterious ways and all that jazz.

Cal, oh Cal! At first I was very charmed by his character, but it was still something about him that made me very unsure if I could trust him.

Ariana’s family is an assembly if interesting characters as well and they give extra depth and variation to the story.

The Plot

This book was definitely a fast paced one and I flew right through it in the curiosity wanting to know what was going to happen next.

That interesting mixture of science fiction and almost like a reality show made it into something very different than anything else I’ve read.

This story did definitely have some plot twists that made it even more interesting and some I really did not see coming.

Additional Thoughts

I really enjoyed this young adult novel and its originality. I look forward to continuing on with the series and seeing where this goes!

Another diamond in the rough! Some minor things that made me not give it a top score, but still one that I would highly recommend if you like science fiction and dystopian novels.

Every Day by David Levithan – REVIEW

9781405264426I read a paperback edition published by Electric Monkey. 

Published: September 10, 2013

Publisher: Ember

Pages: 384 (paperback)

Audiobook length: 8 hrs and 30 min



Synopsis by the publisher:

Every day I am someone else. I am myself – I know I am myself – but I am also someone else. It has always been like this. Each morning, A wakes up in a different body. There’s never any warning about who it will be, but A is used to that. Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere. And that’s fine – until A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with – every day…

David Levithan
David Levithan


The Writing

This was my very first Levithan novel and all I’d ever read from his beforehand was his short story in My True Love Gave To Me. I’d heard so many great things about his writing and now I really do understand why. His writes beautifully and in such an engaging way. There’s something very poetic and different about it and it had me mesmerized.

The Characters

A was a very interesting character. I could definitely relate to a lot of A’s thoughts and I think one of the things that really made me appreciate A was the way A talked about love, no matter what gender. A was very reflected and smart. So many could learn from A when it comes to not being so judgmental.

What made this book so special was the fact that the reader get to meet so many characters. You get to know the people that A turns out to be every morning I that made it all so interesting.

So many interesting and real characters and a very special inside look to all of their lives.

The Plot

This novel had a very steady pace to it and I flew through it. It was wonderfully unpredictable and so original.

I had no way of knowing where this story would end up and in that way Every Day had me glued to the pages all the way!

My Thoughts

This is another book that I went into blind and was so pleasantly surprised! It was so different and interesting. A wonderful story about love and finding yourself in it.

Highly recommend and I can’t wait to read Another Day!

Another Day (the companion novel to Every Day) is out on July 30, 2015 (UK) and August 25, 2015 (US).

The Woman Who Stole My Life by Marian Keyes- REVIEW

24874019I read this book in a paperback edition that I got as a present.

Published: May 21st 2015

Publisher: Penguin Books Ltd.

Pages: 560 (paperback)

Audiobook length: 15 hrs and 1 min






Synopsis by the publisher:

‘Name: Stella Sweeney. Height: average. Recent life events: dramatic.’

One day, sitting in traffic, married Dublin mum Stella Sweeney attempts a good deed. The resulting car crash changes her life. For she meets a man who wants her telephone number (for the insurance, it turns out). That’s okay. She doesn’t really like him much anyway (his Range Rover totally banjaxed her car). But in this meeting is born the seed of something which will take Stella thousands of miles from her old life, turning an ordinary woman into a superstar, and, along the way, wrenching her whole family apart. Is this all because of one ill-advised act of goodwill? Was meeting Mr Range Rover destiny or karma? Should she be grateful or hopping mad? For the first time real, honest-to-goodness happiness is just within her reach. But is Stella Sweeney, Dublin housewife, ready to grasp it?

Marian Keyes
Marian Keyes


The Writing 

I remember reading her book This Charming Man a long time ago and really enjoying her writing, but I was worried that my taste in literature had changed too much for it to still be a part of my favorite cups of tea. Turned out I was worried for no reason.

Marian Keyes’ writing is so easy going and witty even when they touch on darker and more serious subjects. The dialogue of the characters is done so well and this book had me laughing out loud as well as drying my tears.

The Characters

Oh Stella, my dear Stella! A character that definitely found her way into a special place in my reading heart!

We had our moments where I was pulling my hair out of frustration caused by her choices and reaction, but all in all I just loved her as a character.

I won’t go too much more into the characters because it could possibly spoil you a bit, but this book definitely has a good assembly of original and lovely characters! Some will warm your heart, others will have you laughing and then there are the few that will make you mad!

The Plot

I went into this book very much blind. I didn’t really want to know much more than what the synopsis told me and I’m glad that I did.

This turned out to be a very different story than what I thought it would be, in a very positive way!

It took some twists and turns that I really did not see coming and then there were a few that I had a hunch about but I still felt was the right choices for the direction of the story.

This story captured me from the very first page and had me to the very end, something that rarely happens when it comes to me and “chick lit”.

An amazing story with all the right elements of an interesting summer read!

My Thoughts

This is a book that I would have probably never bought for my self, but I’m so glad that it found its way into my hands because I really enjoyed it!

It was a surprise gift wrapped in another surprise!

A perfect summer read!

IT by Stephen King – REVIEW

It_coverI read a paperback edition of IT. 

Published: September 1986

Publisher: Viking Press (now owned by Penguin Random House) 

Pages: 1104 (paperback)

Audiobook length: 44 hrs, 57 min






Synopsis by the publisher:

It’s a small city, a place as hauntingly familiar as your own hometown. Only in Derry the haunting is real….

They were seven teenagers when they first stumbled upon the horror. Now they are grown-up men and women who have gone out into the big world to gain success and happiness. But none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them back to Derry to face the nightmare without an end, and the evil without a name.

Stephen King
Stephen King


The Writing

 Stephen King is an absolute master when it comes to setting that creepy and dark mood in the readers mind. The way he explains surroundings, events and people’s inner most scary thoughts is done so brilliantly that you feel like you’re a part of the story.

The way he hints to what is going to happen throughout the story makes reading it like watching a disaster happening in slow motion. You are mesmerized and can’t look away and you badly want the warn the characters at the same time.

And I just love how he adds references to other books of his as well as the work of authors that he admires.

The Characters

Even though King is known as the master of horror, I think that what makes him such a talented writer is the way that he shows a reader the very worst and the best that hides inside a human.

Let’s start with Pennywise (because how could I not?)! I can definitely see how so many was traumatized when it came to clowns as they read this book at quite an early age. I myself (not being that easily scared when it comes to books) wasn’t scared for life and runs away screaming whenever I see a clown after reading IT, but Pennywise definitely pops into my mind every time I see a floating balloon or look down the drain pipe in a bathroom. So I might have been somewhat affected by this creepy clown. But there was so much to this mysterious character and I was so incredibly intrigued by IT (and horribly disappointed when it came to the movie when I watched that for the first time after finishing the book! But more about that later.)

In the beginning of the book there were a whole lot of characters being introduced and I was a bit confused for a little while, but in true Stephen King style, it wrapped itself together pretty fast and then it was almost impossible to not be hooked into every single character’s story.

The Plot

I really had no idea where this story would go or end up when I started reading.

The plot twists and turns and tells so many stories in one book, and as long as it’s done as well as this is then I’m loving that concept.

I was never bored, I always had a feeling of the possibility for absolutely anything to happen and my heart was already racing at page forty-seven.

And that ending! Woah! Stories like this with endings like that is what makes me such a big fan of Stephen King’s work!

My Thoughts

IT was such an amazing ride of a story. I loved every step of the way, even though I was a little confused at times. When I finished reading, it did not feel like I had been through over 1100 pages.

Definitely a book that I want to reread again some time and one that made me respect King as a writer even more.

And (as I mentioned) I did watch the movie after finishing the book and I was so disappointed. It did not stay true to the story, it hardly explained what IT was and there were so many parts that I missed from the book when I had it so fresh in my memory.

I was really rooting for the remake of IT and was actually really sad to hear that it was put on ice for now. We need a better movie adaptation of this horrific masterpiece!

Landline by Rainbow Rowell – REVIEW

18081809Landline is an adult contemporary novel. I read this in a paperback edition published by Orion Books.

Published: January 1st 2014

Publisher: St. Martin’s Press

Pages: 320 (hardcover)

Audiobook length: 9 hrs and 3 min





 Synopsis by the publisher

Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble; it has been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems beside the point now.

Maybe that was always beside the point.

Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect him to pack up the kids and go home without her.

When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.

That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts…

Is that what she’s supposed to do?

Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?

Rainbow Rowell
Rainbow Rowell


The Writing

Rowell’s writing is witty and I really did like the dialogue between the characters. Especially the ones between Georgie and young Neal.

There was a lot of easy humor, witty remarks and thoughts on love. And I loved the Tolkien references.

This is the second Rowell novel that I’ve read and I do really enjoy her writing even though I don’t feel as captivated by it as many others do.

The Characters

Georgie was a really ambitious character and I could relate to her in her frustration in feeling like she was trying to fulfill her dream as well as taking care of her family.

Seth and Neal made for two interesting male characters. I really fell for Seth in the beginning and just loved his smart remarks and his humor, but when young Neal came into the picture I had a hard time trying to decide which one of them I liked best.

Noomi is the cutest character in the bunch though! “Meow!”

The Plot

Landline had a pretty even pace and good build up.

It did take me a little while to get invested in the story, but when we got to around a hundred pages the story took a hold on me.

I felt like there could have been a lot more to this story as I did enjoy it quite a lot, but felt like everything got resolved a bit too quickly when there was so many feelings behind the whole plot.

I did like the ending though and it got me a little teared up.

My Thoughts

As I wrote above, it did take me quite a while to  get invested in this story. I was not bored for the first hundred pages, but I did not connect with the characters that much either.

But as the story finally took a hold on me I really did fly through it and enjoyed it very much.

It was an enjoyable and fast read but I didn’t love it.

Adultery by Paulo Coelho – REVIEW

20819682Adultery is a contemporary fiction novel. I read this in paperback format.

Published: August 19th, 2014 

Publisher: Knopf

Pages: 272 (paperback)

Audiobook length: 8hrs and 10 min





Synopsis by the publisher:

Linda knows she’s lucky. Yet every morning when she opens her eyes to a so-called new day, she feels like closing them again. Her friends recommend medication. But Linda wants to feel more, not less. And so she embarks on an adventure as unexpected as it is daring, and which reawakens a side of her that she – respectable wife, loving mother, ambitious journalist – thought had disappeared. Even she can’t predict what will happen next…


The Writing

Coelho’s writing is breathtakingly beautiful! There aren’t many writers that has captured and moved me the way that Coelho does again and again. The way he paints a perfect mental image of the honesty in any flawed situation is what made this book so hard to put down.

It’s utterly fascinating how he can put together the same words as we all use into an emotional masterpiece.


The Characters

I felt an instant connection to Linda. Her fear of missing out on things in life but in the same way fearing to let go of what she already had is something that I can see as relatable to so many of us.

Her temptations and thoughts were so brutally honest and showed us a very intimate strain of thoughts that I haven’t seen done so well in a while.

She was the perfectly imperfect character and she has a special place in my heart.

The Plot

Linda certainly goes through a lot in this short book and I really did struggle to put it down. I just wanted to know where her life was taking her and how she would handle it all.

There were some moments in the book where I was truly surprised when it came to Linda’s choice of action and even though it wasn’t the choices I hoped she would make (some of the times) but I still understood how she came to make those choices. And those choices made the story go in directions that took a hold of me and held me tight throughout the whole book.

It moved at an even pace and had some twists and turns that did not blow my mind but they felt right and true to the storyline.



I loved this book and I loved Linda and all her flaws. It was a story that differs so much from anything I’ve ever read.

Coelho writes perfectly about life, loss, fears and love. A provocative, honest story with a powerful message.

Highly, highly recommend!

How To Fly With Broken Wings by Jane Elson – REVIEW

9781444916768This book was sent to me by Hachette Children’s Books via Netgalley to read and give an honest review. Thanks guys!

Publisher: Hachette Children’s Books 

Published: March 5th, 2015

Pages: 191 (paperback)

Not available as audiobook at present time. 





Synopsis by the publisher: 

‘If Finn Maison shouts jump you jump or you are dead.’

Twelve-year-old Willem has Aspergers Syndrome and two main aims in life: to fly and to make at least two friends of his own age. But all the other boys from the Beckham Estate do is make him jump off things. First his desk – and now the wall. As his toes teeter on the edge, Sasha Barton gives him a tiny little wink. Might she become his friend?

Bullied by Finn and his gang the Beckham Estate Boyz, Willem has no choice but to jump. As he flies through the air he flaps his arms, wishing he could fly and escape into the clouds. Instead he comes crashing down and breaks his ankle.

Sasha, angry with herself for not stopping Finn and his Boyz, is determined to put things right. And soon, while the gangs riot on their estate, Willem and Sasha form an unlikely friendship. Because they share a secret. Sasha longs to fly too.

And when Magic Man Archie arrives with stories of war-flying spitfires, he will change the lives of the kids on the Beckham Estate for ever. And perhaps find a way for Willem and Sasha to fly …

Touching on themes such as friendship and bullying, this is a charming tale about overcoming obstacles and finding friendship in unlikely places.


The Writing 

The writing in this book was what really made this out to be not my cup of tea. I liked the dialogue and thoughts of Willem, but when it came to most of the other character’s voices it felt a little forced to me unfortunately.

And even though I see how Elson tried to give Sasha a realistic teen voice it just did not do it for me. And the word “proper” gave me headache when I saw it for the hundredth time.

I do enjoy writing in middle grade fiction from time to time, but this was not one of them. It was okay, but there was just a lot of things I found weird with it and it made me loose focus on the story as a whole at times.

The Characters

I was really looking forward to reading a story that was told from the perspective of someone with Aspergers Syndrome as I do have someone close to me who has this syndrome but in a much lighter degree.

I liked his voice in the story and the way that his notes was shown to us and gives the reader an interesting insight to a brain that works a little different from most others.

That being said, I really felt like there could have been so much more depth to this character.

Sasha had I very hard time relating to. I found her love/hate relationship to Finn to be very annoying and somewhat unrealistic considering their very young age.

The Plot

Unfortunately I found it to be really hard to get invested in this story. The start was catching but then it went kind of flat.

There were a lot of things going on from time to time, but for some reason it just didn’t grab a hold of me and at times it was a little all over the place and had me confused.

I didn’t like the ending of the story either. I thought it was very unrealistic.


Even though there is a lot of negative sides to this review there was a few sections of the book that I did enjoy.

It was a fast read and it might come across completely different for a younger reader than what it did for me.

Bottomline (in my case) is that I thought that the book was no more than okay. It had potential to be so much more than what it was.

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas – REVIEW

16096824A Court of Thorns and Roses is the first book in a new adult fantasy trilogy inspired by Beauty and The Beast. 

Published: May 5th, 2015

Publisher: Bloomsbury USA childrens

Pages: 432 (hardcover)

Audiobook length: 16 hrs, 7 min








Synopsis by the publisher:

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.


The Writing

After reading (and loving) The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas, I had extremely high expectations for the writing in this book. I was not disappointed!

The writing in ACOTAR is just as beautiful, but different as it is written in first person perspective.

Maas has a unique way of building up fantastic fantasy worlds that you can picture with ease even though they are so detailed and well made.

The way she writes about the emotions of the characters is also perfectly done and her writing is poetic and beautiful while it is brutal and real at the same time.

The Characters

Feyre was an interesting character that I really liked from the beginning. She is a strong female protagonist in a world where she had to be a grown up at a young age. But even though she is such a strong character she has her shortcomings which made her an even more relatable character.

Feyre had a lot of character development through this book and I’m really looking forward to seeing how much more is to come in the next two books.

Tamlin was very mysterious at first but definitely a character that charmed me early on and had me invested in the story and the love interest.

Lucien and Rhysand found their ways into my hearts as well!

Needless to say: this book is packed with interesting characters!

The Plot

Beauty and The Beast shone through in the story so many places and I loved it! Fairytale retellings can have a way of becoming somewhat cliché, but not this one.

It had just the right amount of inspired pieces as well as being a truly original story with twists and turns that I did not see coming. It had fantastic build up to the dramatic pieces and the last fifty pages or so really had me at the edge of my seat (almost to the point of nail biting).

I loved the way the story wrapped up in the end!


I loved the story from the very beginning, but for some reason it took me a couple of chapters into it before I was really invested in the story. This could be that I was sort of on my way into a tiny reading slump, but thankfully I found my way back and when I got into this story I was hooked!

This was a refreshing, sexy and unique read! I can’t believe I have to wait a whole year before getting my hands on the next chapter of this epic story.

Oh, and let’s not forget the stunning artwork on the cover! It deserves mentioning! Designer Donna Mark did an amazing job!

I have no doubt that this will be just as much of a success as The Throne of Glass series has become.

Sarah is a brilliant writer and I’ve loved all of her work so far! Her books are future classics in the making!

I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson – REVIEW



I listened to I’ll Give You The Sun on Audible. 

Published: September 16th, 2014

Publisher: Dial Books 

Pages: 371 (hardback)

Audiobook length: 12 hrs, 57 min







Synopsis by the publisher:

Jude and her twin brother, Noah, are incredibly close. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude cliff-dives and wears red-red lipstick and does the talking for both of them. But three years later, Jude and Noah are barely speaking. Something has happened to wreck the twins in different and dramatic ways . . . until Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy, as well as someone else—an even more unpredictable new force in her life. The early years are Noah’s story to tell. The later years are Jude’s. What the twins don’t realize is that they each have only half the story, and if they could just find their way back to one another, they’d have a chance to remake their world.


The Writing

Nelson’s writing in this book is so beautiful and unique! The way she makes you see all the paintings in front of you so vividly is amazingly well done!

It was funny, puzzling, different, beautiful and heart breaking.

The beautiful pros and flows of the book captivated me from the very beginning and held me in its grip the whole way through.

The Characters

Noah: He was such an interesting character. To follow him as he struggled with love and his sexual orientation was both heart warming and breaking at the same time. I just wanted to jump into the book and help him out.

And these invisible portraits that he makes in his mind described all of his feelings in such a unique way with so few words.

Jude: She was definitely my favorite and it was probably because she was the one that was easiest to relate to for me. Her thoughts on love, boys and family was really a treat to read. And how she follows her grandmother’s “bible” made me laugh out loud while listening.

The Plot

I think this is the first time that I’ve read a book that has two different plot lines that does not go over the same period of time. But it worked out so beautifully and it was one of the things that really made this book so different and wonderful.

And the way that Nelson intertwine those timelines was handled perfectly!

I did see some of the plot twists coming, but it didn’t really spoil the joy of the book in any way and I can’t really pinpoint why.


I’d heard so many good things about this book before I started it and I was a little afraid that I had gotten too high expectations, but amazingly enough it lived up to my expectations and then some!

It was just a beautiful book that had me going through so many emotions as the story progressed and the characters developed. I really connected with the twins and when the story was over I wanted it to be more.

A gripping and wonderful story about family, love, growing up and realizing that life is not going to be what you expected. Just as this book ended up meaning so much more to me than I ever expected!

Definitely one of my favorites for 2015!

Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll – REVIEW

luckiest-girl-alive-9781476789637Luckiest Girl Alive was sent to my by the publisher via Netgalley to read and give an honest review. 

Published: May 12th, 2015

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Pages: 352



Synopsis by the the publisher:

As a teenager at the prestigious Bradley School, Ani FaNelli endured a shocking, public humiliation that left her desperate to reinvent herself. Now, with a glamorous job, expensive wardrobe, and handsome blue blood fiancé, she’s this close to living the perfect life she’s worked so hard to achieve.

But Ani has a secret.

There’s something else buried in her past that still haunts her, something private and painful that threatens to bubble to the surface and destroy everything.

With a singular voice and twists you won’t see coming, Luckiest Girl Aliveexplores the unbearable pressure that so many women feel to “have it all” and introduces a heroine whose sharp edges and cutthroat ambition have been protecting a scandalous truth, and a heart that’s bigger than it first appears.

The question remains: will breaking her silence destroy all that she has worked for—or, will it at long last, set Ani free?

And now, over to the review!

Luckiest Girl Alive is probably not a book that I would have picked up in the store. I was not really sold on the synopsis when I first came over it and I didn’t LOVE the cover. But after reading some really good (no spoiler) reviews, I decided to request it on Netgalley.

What it turned out to be, was nothing like I ever would have expected it to be.

This book is quite difficult to review without spoiling you guys so that’s why I’m doing it a little different this review, but it is for your own good. Haha!

The thing about this book is that it is brutal and it is uncomfortably honest at times. It takes a look on the pressure for women when it comes to looks, status and career. And what makes this book very thrilling and gripping is the secrets that unravel throughout the books.

It was well written and how it all come together was done really well. It took me a little while to get invested in the story mostly because Ani is not a character that I personally felt extremely connected to in the beginning.

I watched this video prior to reading the book so I was very prepared to not immediately like Ani:

Did Knoll make me care about Ani?

Definitely! I rooted for her even though I did not agree with all of her choices.

Did I see some of myself in her? Yeah, I did. The pressure she’s under is something that I think most women faces at some point.

She was a refreshingly honest character and I really liked that. It  made the story into something more than what I ever thought possible. It touches on some extremely heavy subjects that needs this kind of focus.

And the plot twist! Let’s just say that I had to stop reading the section, go back and read it again just to be sure that my eyes hadn’t tricked me.

Some parts I wished were gone even more into depths with and I really would have loved to get to know some of the side characters a little better. Especially Ben. I wish we could have heard more about him.

And I believe Knoll gave it the perfect ending!


Highly recommend if you want to read something a little different, brutally honest and somewhat uncomfortable in a good way.

People are comparing it to Gone Girl. Since I haven’t read Gone Girl I can’t vouch for that, but maybe it helps you get more of a feel to what kind of story to expect of this book.
