Wildcard by Marie Lu Review

Image
Hello lovelies!

Penguin Teen Canada graciously sent me a copy of Wildcard by Marie Lu (the sequel to Warcross), and I wanted to share my thoughts on it with you guys!

I read the ARC last week and I LOVED IT. I finished it in 2 days, it had me hooked from the first page. Lu's writing style is engaging and fast paced, and fans of Warcross will be pleased with the continuation of plot twists and dark secrets.

The story picks up shortly after the first book ended, and follows Emika Chen as she faces new challenges as she works to dismantle the new NeuroLink algorithm. Her emotions are vividly described, and readers will feel her pain, sadness, and happiness as the novel continues. She joins Zero and the Blackcoats, which leads to more struggles for Emika - and those close to her.

Hideo and Emika's relationship in this novel is one of my favourite plot lines in the novel. The way they feel for each other is evident throughout, creating friction at times and passion at others. Both…

Onyx & Ivory by Mindee Arnett (June 14th) - 4/5 ⭐

I was not sure what to expect from this novel, but I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed it.

After a bit of a slow start in terms of the pace, the characters - especially Kate, became very intriguing, drawing readers into every page. Corwin's and Kate's perspectives were engaging to read about, and it was enjoyable to read about their relationship, and how it was mended throughout the novel. Readers truly felt their emotions,understood their thoughts, and felt their struggles during conflicts. It was also exciting to see a traitor girl save a prince - not a very common plot detail in YA fantasy, and I enjoyed that.

The magical features throughout Rima were some of my favourite parts. These unique and mystical features distingu…

REVIEW: From Twinkle, With Love

Image
Hey lovelies!

I just finished 'From Twinkle, With Love' by Sandhya Menon, and I am extremely happy with it! I graciously received an ARC from Simon & Schuster Canada in exchange for an honest review, and cannot wait to share my opinions on this great story.

RATING: 4.75/5

REVIEW: 'From Twinkle, With Love' tells the story of aspiring filmmaker Twinkle, and her journey through her first experiences of love, heartbreak, and how the power of friendship can overcome even the greatest pain.


I absolutely adored this novel, from the characters to the plot, and even the family struggles. Sahil's character was probably my favourite, loyal from the first page, and an honest friend to Twinkle when she needed someone to confide to. When individuals read his point of view, it is a true teenage guy perspective, and made the story feel real.

In terms of Twinkle's development, her growth as a leader, friend, and a person were impressively written.Twinkle's unsteady relati…

This modern-day retelling of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing takes place at the idyllic Camp Dogberry, where sisters Bee and Hana Leonato have grown up. Their parents own the place, and every summer they look forward to leading little campers in crafts, swimming in the lake, playing games of capture the flag and sproutball, and of course, the legendary counselor parties.

This year, the camp drama isn’t just on the improv stage. Bee and longtime counselor Ben have a will-they-or-won’t-they romance that’s complicated by events that happened—or didn’t happen—last summer. Meanwhile, Hana is falling hard for the kind but insecure Claudia, putting them both in the crosshairs of resident troublemaker John, who spreads a vicious rumor that could tear them apart.

As the counselors juggle their camp res…
