(DISCLAIMER: All thoughts and opinions are my own.)

This book was on my anticipated reads list and when I found out I could download an eARC from Edelweiss, I jumped at the chance.

I loved the premise and it had this whole frenemy thing going on with quite a lot of tension. I did like that it used Twitter to tell the story, but unfortunately, those were the only few things I enjoyed.

I wanted so badly to love this book, like many of my other peers did, but I didn’t connect to the characters or the story. It was unfortunate that I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I should have because it was one of my anticipated reads and I loved the whole rivals to lovers trope.

This book definitely gave me The Lunar Chronicles vibes, which happens to be THE series that brought me into YA and loving sci-fi. Initially, I enjoyed and liked this book and had no idea it was sci-fi gender-bent version of Cinderella until I reread the synopsis.

The book is told in alternate POVs between Aidan and Delia. I wanted to like this book so much, but unfortunately, I didn’t. I did not care for the characters or romance. The concept was easy to grasp, but I felt that there was no world building and by 30% I was bored. Although I did understand Cinderella had an insta-love plot, I wished that this book would have developed it more.

I found this book very similar to Cinder and found it pretty predictable. It was unfortunate as I was bored and did not care for the characters or story.

Summer bird blue by Akemi Dawn Bowman

Genre: YA, Contemporary, Romance

Rating: 3.5/5 stars

(Synopsis from Goodreads)

Rumi Seto spends a lot of time worrying she doesn’t have the answers to everything. What to eat, where to go, whom to love. But there is one thing she is absolutely sure of—she wants to spend the rest of her life writing music with her younger sister, Lea.

Then Lea dies in a car accident, and her mother sends her away to live with her aunt in Hawaii while she deals with her own grief. Now thousands of miles from home, Rumi struggles to navigate the loss of her sister, being abandoned by her mother, and the absence of music in her life. With the help of the “boys next door”—a teenage surfer named Kai, who smiles too much and doesn’t take anything seriously, and an eighty-year-old named George Watanabe, who succumbed to his own grief years ago—Rumi attempts to find her way back to her music, to write the song she and Lea never had the chance to finish.

I found this book very raw and emotionally vulnerable.

I love that we get to see that Rumi pushes everyone away and shuts them out, she used to be jealous because Lea was the golden child, but now she’s just grieving and in a lot of pain.

I also found this book heartwarming and sweet, a definite heartbreaking of a novel.

Book review: Brave new girl (Brave new girl #1) By Rachel Vincent (4 stars)

Brave new girl (Brave new girl #1) By Rachel Vincent

Genre: YA, Sci-fi-dystopian, Romance

Rating: 4/5 stars

(Synopsis from Goodreads)

We have brown hair. Brown eyes. Fair skin. We are healthy and strong and smart. But only one of us has ever had a secret.

Dahlia 16 sees her face in every crowd. She’s nothing special—just one of five thousand girls created from a single genome to work for the greater good of the city.

Meeting Trigger 17 changes everything. He thinks she’s interesting. Beautiful. Unique. Which means he must be flawed. When Dahlia can’t stop thinking about him—when she can’t resist looking for him, even though that means breaking the rules—she realizes she’s flawed, too. But if she’s flawed, then so are all her identicals. And any genome found to be flawed will be recalled.

Destroyed.

Getting caught with Trigger would seal not only Dahlia’s fate, but that of all five thousand girls who share her face. But what if Trigger is right? What if Dahlia is different?

Suddenly the girl who always follows the rules is breaking them, one by one by one…

I loved the high stakes and the fast pacing of this story. Although I’m not a big fan of insta-love, the one in this book kinda works because of the world building, risks and the setting of the story.

This book gave me vibes of Shatter me and Flawed.

I really enjoyed this book and also loved The flame never rise series that I read prior from the same author.

Fame, fate and the first kiss by Kasie West

Genre: YA, Contemporary, Romance

Rating: 4/5 stars

(Synopsis from Goodreads)

Lacey Barnes has dreamt of being in a movie for as long as she can remember. However, while her dream did include working alongside the hottest actor in Hollywood, it didn’t involve having to finish up her senior year of high school at the same time she was getting her big break. Although that is nothing compared to Donavan, the straight-laced student her father hires to tutor her, who is a full-on nightmare.

As Lacey struggles to juggle her burgeoning career, some on-set sabotage, and an off-screen romance with the unlikeliest of leading men, she quickly learns that sometimes the best stories happen when you go off script.

I loved that this book included film-related topics! I did find it predictable, but it was a cute story with a great setting that immediately drew my attention to the book.

I really found this book adorable and since I was a film student, I’m a little biased about liking this book because I really related to the behind the scenes of filming.
