Instant New York Times Bestseller
The newest, highly anticipated novel from beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author, Colleen Hoover.
Sometimes it is the one who loves you who hurts you the most.
Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.
Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.
As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan—her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.
“All humans make mistakes. What determines a person’s character aren’t the mistakes we make. It’s how we take those mistakes and turn them into lessons rather than excuses.”

Hello peeps. How’s your life?? I just hope yours are good as mine, I guess. Kidding mine has been more hectic than ever, keeping me company this whole month. Anyways, guess who’s back?? yesss, it’s me. 🎇🎆🎆🎆🎇
I’m not going to post about a book review or two now. I only wanna be here to share with you guys all about a pile of mails that I received last week. 😏😏
I’m going with June was a tough month for. So freaking tough with lots of holidays in almost two weeks or three, I couldn’t even remember it. 😭 Holidays mean the post office is closed which does mean no book mails for me. 😭 Just like that, can you imagine you’ve bought lots of books when it’s holiday and the post office decided to close to celebrate it as well. It sure damn was so annoying. 😭 It did happen to me. 😭😭 So I just sat here at home and wondered as to when the postman would come to me bringing my mails. The days went by, even the month. And then, last Wednesday (if I’m not mistaken), I heard the postman’s ride, my brother told me “There he (the postman) is, a guess for you.” I was just feeling so excited that time. I ran as fast as I could to meet him. And you know what happened next?? 🤪🤪🤪 The postman brought me SIX mails. Yikess!! It’s now only one mail but SIX as in S-I-X. Oh My Gosh, can you imagine how does it feel?? Absolutely, amazing. I couldn’t even make up a word to express it. Wonderful. Amazing too. I thought I went crazy that moment. Here’s the picture : Continue reading “Book Rambles 2: Book Mails”

Title : The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Author : Stephen Chbosky
GR Rating : 4.21
Edition : Paperback
Pages : 231
Published August 30th 2012 by Simon & Schuster Childrens Books
Charlie is a freshman.
And while he’s not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it.
Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory: the world of first dates and mix tapes, family dramas and new friends; the world of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite. But he can’t stay on the sideline forever. Standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a deeply affecting coming-of-age story that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.
“So, I guess we are who we are for alot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.”

Title : A Girl Named Calamity (Alyria #1)
Author : Danielle Lori
GR Ratings: 4.26
Edition : Kindle

Published July 13th 2016
“I hoped more than anything my name wasn’t my fate.”
I was a simple farm girl living in the magical land, Alyria, where men ruled and women only existed.
Call me sheltered. Call me naive. I was probably both. I never expected to be the key to Alyria’s destruction.
The journey I was on wasn’t only one to save me. But one where I had a lot of learning to do. With men. With magic. And with myself.
But I wasn’t alone. I had an escort. One I wasn’t so sure about. But one I couldn’t afford to lose and one I wasn’t so sure I could even leave.
I had many hopes. But the most important one was that my name wouldn’t become my fate.
WARNING: This novel contains blood, violence, profanity, and some sexual content.
It does end on a cliffhanger.

Let’s take a look at this description below first, before I write down my review to it.
Title : The Forest Spell (Kaine Academy Book 1)
Author : Megan Kempston
Pages : 360
Published October 31st 2016 by Megan Kempston
Kaine Academy is a lot of things-prestigious, expensive, well-situated in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains-but it’s definitely not normal. When Zie Harris starts the year as a sophomore transfer-and the school’s only half-elf-she knows she’s in for adventure. She just assumed it would involve more ignoring shifter arm wrestling matches while trying to study and less actual danger. Autumn Munro and Hal Hayes, on the other hand, have been teaching at Kaine long enough to know it’s best not to assume anything at school. The hedgewitch and the wizard always have their hands full with cheeky students and cheekier coworkers, and this year is no different. But when Zie finds evidence of dark magic in the forest, things get a lot more complicated. Soon, Zie, Autumn, and Hal find themselves banding together-along with an ornery chickadee, a loquacious squirrel, and trees of all shapes and sizes-to try to save themselves, the school, and possibly the world. No pressure or anything.
My rating : 4/5 stars
My thoughts about the copy goes like wow it’s such a good book. Honestly, yess!! I found it intriguing a lot. It’s not that usual when an author picked a point of view or two from the older character(s). I mean, let me tell you that there are 3 main characters in the book. They are Hal, Autumn, and Zie which Hal and Autumn are Zie’s teacher. That’s a very good point for Megan. I hardly find an author which uses it a lot. The story talked about fairies, witches, magic, black magic, etc. So if you’re a giant fan of Harry Potter world, you definitely should check this one out. I love the way Megan wrote the story, she used first person point of view. It’s a plus point because it will help you to understand the story-line.
