- Title: Eleanor and Park Author: Rainbow Rowell Rating: 5/5 It's deep and I was so surprised it was. It's a YA book thus, the skepticism. Not that I hate YA's but at my age, it feels like it's out of my league already. This book was actually chosen out of boredom, when we were in a vacation and I forgot… Continue reading "Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell (Book Review)"
Life and Death, Rating: 4/5, Stephenie Meyer
By Trixie Ricablanca onTitle: Life and Death (Twilight Reimagined) Author: Stephenie Meyer Rating: 4/5 Of course, Twilight is much better. No doubt on that. The previous version has much more adventures and mishaps than this one, and Life and Death can never be compared with it - it's just unfair. On the other hand, this book has struck me at first, as… Continue reading "Life and Death by Stephenie Meyer (Book Review)"
Lola and the Boy Next Door, Rating: 3/5, Stephanie Perkins
By Trixie Ricablanca onTitle: Lola and the Boy Next Door Author: Stephanie Perkins Rating: 3/5 Another attempt for a YA genre and it's another miss. It's a story of a seventeen year old girl who is torn between two lovers - her boyfriend and her ex-crush that also has a crush on her (yes, very teenage-y). Her eccentric self maybe the reason why… Continue reading "Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins (Book Review)"
Gayle Forman, If I Stay, Rating: 2/5
By Trixie Ricablanca onTitle: If I Stay Author: Gayle Forman Rating: 2/5 Just like some of my 2/5 rated books, I didn't finish reading this novel. I'm nor sure if I should blame it to the book and the movie trailer I have watched or it just really didn't suit me and my interest. I am not really an avid fan of young… Continue reading "If I Stay by Gayle Forman (Book Review)"
Alexandra Adornetto, Heaven, Rating: 2/5
By Trixie Ricablanca onTitle: Heaven Author: Alexandra Adornetto Rating: 2/5 Having read the other two books of Adornetto made me so excited about this novel. Too much anticipation and expectations have brought me to turn this book down. Unfortunately, it wasn't as good as I expected it to be. As much as I have loved the other 2 books, Halo and Hades, Heaven… Continue reading "Heaven by Alexandra Adornetto (Book Review)"
Alexandra Adornetto, Hades, Rating: 5/5
By Trixie Ricablanca onTitle: Hades Author: Alexandra Adornetto Rating: 5/5 Hades is the Greek God of underworld which also connotes death. When Bethany and Xavier finally got rid of Jake Thorn from the first book, Halo, there shouldn't be no way for him to return back and spread his darkness; but because of some seance that was initiated by the friends of Bethany,… Continue reading "Hades by Alexandra Adornetto (Book Review)"
John Green, Rating: 4/5, The Fault in Our Stars
By Trixie Ricablanca onTitle: The Fault in Our Stars Author: John Green Rating: 4/5 As I read some reviews from other bloggers about this book, I really thought it was a Romeo and Juliet type of young love story; wherein both (Hazel Grace and Augustus; the two main characters in the story) will unfortunately die in the end, because the story is about… Continue reading "The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (Book Review)"
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo, Rating: 4/5, Rating: 5/5
By Trixie Ricablanca onTitle: Halo Author: Alexandra Adornetto Rating: 4.5/5 Since I'm not so into YA genre , I never thought that I'd fall in love with this book. And because of this, I'll make sure to read one, once in a while. It was a sweet love story of an angel (Bethany) and a human being (Xavier) which vows to conquer what… Continue reading "Halo by Alexandra Adornetto (Book Review)"
Fiction, Rating: 5/5, Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower
By Trixie Ricablanca onTitle: The Perks of Being a Wallflower Author: Stephen Chbosky Ratings: 5/5 "Even if we don't have the power to choose where we came from, we can still choose where we go from there." Towards the middle of the story, I just thought its just a so so book and I woudn't be so much engrossed to it, however, as… Continue reading "The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky (Book Review)"
Fiction, Meg Cabot, Rating: 4/5, The Princess Diaries
By Trixie Ricablanca onTitle: The Princess Diaries Author: Meg Cabot Ratings: 4/5 This is the first book ever, that I have read in less than 30 hours straight. (gave me headache tho, lol!) Definitely charming. I can't help but compare it with Sophie Kinsella's Confessions of a Shopaholic. They have the same charm. However, I have watched the film starring Anne Hathaway as the princess and again,… Continue reading "The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot (Book Review)"
Fiction, Natalie Babbitt, Rating: 3/5, Tuck Everlasting
By Trixie Ricablanca onTitle: Tuck Everlasting Author: Natalie Babbit Ratings: 3/5 Though it was released before Twilight, I've read this after reading the Edward-Bella hype that made it like, "Why is immortal so in these days?" haha! It has the same "immortality" theme as the vampire book though they are not vampires and they got it differently compared to them. It has a… Continue reading "Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbit (Book Review)"
Ann Brashares, Rating: 3/5, The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants
By Trixie Ricablanca onTitle: The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants Author: Ann Brashares Ratings: 3/5 The Books is easy to read. It's fun and though it has simple plot, the story has full of adventures that after reading it, you'd definitely ask for more. You'd anticipate reading the next book. Pre teens to teen girls will enjoy reading this more since this is… Continue reading "The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants by Ann Brashares (Book Review) Book 1"
