Vika's YA Fiction Review: The Fault in Ours Stars

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green


Synopsis from Goodreads

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.

I’m sure that The Fault in Our Stars needs no introduction. It made a big splash a few years back when it was first published, won a bunch of awards and lots more praising reviews from many of its readers. Furthermore, it is now going to be a major motion picture event which will increase its audience exponentially. So, excuse me if I’m trying to “sell” you on a book that’s been pushed at you so many times before, but I would be wrong if I didn’t tell you how truly terrific it was.

Steampunk Fiction Review: Gilded Hearts by Christine D'Abo

Gilded Hearts by Christine D'Abo (The Shadow Guild #1)

Egalley thanks to Forever Yours

Synopsis from Goodreads
Samuel Hawkins, Sergeant in the King's Sentry, has been called in to investigate a murder case. As he awaits the Archivists to arrive—the team who will use a special device to extract the memories of the dead man to help find clues to his murder—he never expects to come face to face with the woman he'd left behind when he'd fled the Archives five years earlier.

Piper Smith has grown from the girl Samuel remembered into a strong woman and full-fledged archivist. Shadowed by her mentor, Master Ryerson, Piper will be performing her first extraction. When she sees Samuel, she must push aside her childhood crush, else risk her standing within the Guild.

As the two begin working together to find the killer, Samuel and Piper explore their intense attraction to each other. But "Jack the Ripper" proves to be harder to catch than the two originally thought. What's worse, they discover he may very well work for the Archives. Now, Samuel and Piper must battle internal and external threats as they try to foil a plot against the Crown and stop Jack the Ripper from taking his next victim.

 I should man up and learn to DNF review books without so much guilt, peeps. I have no compunction doing it to the books I bought, but ARCs? Oh, man. The guilt eats me up.

Gilded Hearts which I featured on my Dreaming of Books and was very excited about, took me just under a month to read, and that on its own is an indication of what was wrong (takes me a couple of day on average to devour a book).

Scorching hot and absolutely wonderful here, peeps! I've been working my butt off (literally *grin*) and catching up on all the reviews (which I did! I'm up to date now, yay), so I didn't have much time for actual reading. How was your week?

I've READ:

MURDER OF CROWS was just as good as the first book, but personally I think Written in Red was structurally more sound. THE SINGER was even better than The Scribe, and I really enjoyed it, plus it helped me avoid a book hangover after Murder of Crows. :) THE CATCH was wonderful like all Taylor Stevens' books. I am constantly surprised by the wealth of knowledge I receive from each of her thrillers!



Thank you, Elizabeth! There will be a joint review of this book in the end of the month.


I still can't believe I got it! Ilona wrote on her blog that bloggers may request it now from the publisher, so I did send a request to them with all my stats thinking that it's way out of my league, and holy shit, I got approved. Thanks to the publishers! I'm not reviewing it until the day before publication. Can not wait, especially because it's always available on kindle in UK a few days later the official release and I'm usually reading it after everyone else.


 I read this amazing review on this book at Dear Author, and I challenge you not to download this book after you read it too! :)
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! I'm at a huge barbeque party today, so will be slow with the comments, but I'll get to you all eventually. *mwah*

Historical Fiction Review: Resurrection by Amy Carol Reeves

Resurrection by Amy Carol Reeves (Ripper #3)

Egalley thanks to Flux Books

Synopsis from Goodreads
When she catches Edmund Wyatt following her through the streets of London, Abbie Sharp learns that every British monarch for hundreds of years has known about—and financially supported—the Conclave. Furious that the monarchy would cooperate with such a nefarious group, Abbie refuses Wyatt’s request for help in catching the person who is blackmailing Queen Victoria with this secret information. But a far greater threat emerges when the Ripper, Max, returns and brings a string of new murders with him. Abbie must choose whether to help the Queen she now despises or stop Max from succeeding at his most diabolical plan yet—the creation of a whole new Conclave aimed at usurping the British throne.

A solid series! Ghoulish, bloodthirsty and undeniably Gothic.
