This book is fascinating and thrilling. A very well written YA fantasy book. The plot is perfect, characters are perfect, and actually everything is perfect in this story. This book was so good once I finished, I checked the writer’s page for more of her work and surprise, and it’s her debut novel! Truly amazing!

Caraval is a game, a magical game with many performers. Each year it is held on a random place and you need an invitation to be able to go there. Forever Scarlett wrote to Caraval’s manager, Legend, asking for an invitation for her sister, Tella. They live with their powerful and abusive father and when Scarllete is to be married to a nameless Count they finally receive the invitation. With the help of a young sailor they get to the game but Scarlett loses Tella and now she should decide she is going to play the game and find Tella or only watch what happens.

At the first glance it looks like a cliché YA book but I think it’s more than that. Scarlett starts a path to find Tella and she finds herself. When the story begins characters are dull and easy to predict but eventually they get deeper and change. As a YA book I really enjoyed it.

Carry On is my third book from Rainbow Rowell. She is such a natural in storytelling. Plot flows so easily you cannot put the book down and always want to continue.

This book is a fantasy with the touch of romance. Everyone says Simon Snow is the chosen one but in the eyes of his roommate Baz, he is the worst possible choice. Simon doesn’t show any great talent in magic and most of the time his wand is useless in his hands. Baz on the other hand is brilliant but he is evil and a vampire, most of the school doesn’t know though.
In any possible chance they get they fight or even try to kill each other, so fun. But when Simon’s girlfriend breaks up with him and Baz doesn’t show up for school on their senior year. Simon and his best friend Penelope look for clues to find out where he is. When Baz finally shows up something is wrong …

This book is about friendship, trust, suspicion, evil forces, magic and lots of other things. Love is a must in all Rowell stories and like all her previous books she make it so likable in this book that you enjoy every piece of it.

This books is the third in a very good adult romance series written by Katy Evans. Evan’s writing is addictive and easy to follow. I read previous two books in one or two days and this one wasn’t an exception and I loved it way more than those two.


This books is about Rachel’s friend Regina ‘Gina’ and Saint’s playboy friend Tahoe. After being cheated by her longtime boyfriend Paul, Gina doesn’t trust any other man and doesn’t want to start a relationship. Tahoe is ladies’ man and always has more than one blonde by his side. Gina starts to develop feelings for this guy friend of hers and when Tahoe rejects her offer of one night stand on his birthday, she ends up leaving with another guest and eventually start dating new guy : Trent. When their relationship moves forward Gina get confused by her still growing passion toward Tahoe and his misleading behavior, on the other hand Trent starts to ask her to change slightly, eventually Gina realizes she doesn’t need a relationship if it means she cannot be herself… so they take a break and now Gina and Tahoe should decide if they can be more than just friends with undeniable attraction between them…


What I loved about this books is Geena’s self-realization that she shouldn’t be forced to change herself in order to be loved. It doesn’t matter that the other guy is a good guy, she deserves to be loved as she is.
