5 Books That Made Me Cry

Posted May 26, 2017 by Bee / 6 Comments

Earlier this week I made a post on my other blog with a list of books that made me laugh. So today I’m going to give you here a short list of books that made me cry? Why? Balance, of course. Though I’m only giving 5 books on this list and there were 10 on that… BUT there’s a reason for that. You see, I’m a huge crybaby. No doubt about that. But it’s very hard to actually make me cry reading a book. So when a book does make me cry actual tears, it’s a huge accomplishment and these books deserve to be praised for that. So here we go. Here are 5 books that made me cry along […]

Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger

Bee’s Thoughts   Well I’m not entirely sure how to feel about this book, to be honest. I liked parts of it a lot… But then there are other parts that I really didn’t like that really kept me from enjoying this book more than I wanted to. With that also comes that I completely did not relate to the characters at all. Which is tragic, let’s be honest. To start off, I’d like to mention that I was not aware this was going to be a series when I started reading this book. So when I finished, that cliffhanger caught me completely off guard. It’s also very unfair because what the hell? How can you end a book like […]

Waiting on Wednesday: The Lake Effect by Erin McCahan

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. It’s a feature where we show off one of our most anticipated reads of the year. Where we tend to add more books to your never-ending TBR. Bee’s waiting on… why i’m waiting YA Contemporary remains my go-to favorite genre and I am a sucker for books with a male protagonist. On top of that I really enjoyed Love and Other Foreign Words last year. This one sounds like it’s perfect for me and I can’t wait to read it. Are you excited for The Lake Effect? What book are you waiting on this week?

The Shadow Cipher by Laura Ruby

Bee’s thoughts   This book is a perfect example of why I love Middle Grade every now and then. The Shadow Cipher is original, fun and inventive, but it also carries a great message and has some of the most wonderful characters ever. Before I go on though, I will say that this is upper MG (think the first few Percy Jackson & Harry Potter books) so this is something YA readers might enjoy as well. Now on with the review! The Shadow Cipher is set in an alternate version of our own world. To be more specific, it’s set in New York City, where the inventions and buildings from the Morningstarr twins shaped the city to what it is […]

Ten Things On Bee’s Reading Wishlist

Posted May 9, 2017 by Bee / 10 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Ten Things On Our Reading Wishlist. So here are 10 things that I’d like to see more of in YA books. 1 – Male POV Most of my all-time favorite books have a male POV. I don’t know why but I just adore it and I always find it easy to get into. Most of the time easier than a female POV. Maybe this is because I’ve always found it more easy to make friends with guys in the past back when I myself was a young adult (read: silly, dorky teen). But I really would like more of it in YA.
