Hello lovelies ! It’s time for another TTT ! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke & The Bookish !

Today’s theme is Top Ten Of The Most Unique Books I’ve Read

Let’s start with Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. This book changed my vision of life ! It’s one of my favorite books read in  2016 !
Vicious by V.E. Schwab is such a unique read ! I couldn’t decide which character was good or evil ! It’s very impressive !
The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi, I’ve never read a book like this one !

November 9 by Colleen Hoover ! A book that takes place every year, on November 9th. Such a unique concept ! But I could have picked Confess, for its paintings or Maybe Someday, for its songs !
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, because of the narrative point of view ! This is also the exact reason why I DNFed this book haha !
Aristotle And Dante Discover The Secrets Of The Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz. What can I say about this book ? You should read it !

That’s it ! My top ten is a top six this week !! I hope you enjoyed it !


top-ten-tuesdayHello lovelies !  It’s that time again ! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke And The Bookish. I missed doing it last week !

This week’s theme is a Thanksgiving freebie ! I chose to do the Top Ten books I am thankful for !

  • Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. This book brought me so much ! This is my TOP 1, seriously! There’s so much to learn from it ! I try to appreciate life more, to enjoy the little things.
  • November 9 by Colleen Hoover. One word : self-confidence.
  • Maybe Someday, also by Colleen Hoover. Because it’s my first CoHo book !
  • After by Anna Todd. The whole series, in fact ! Because it turned me into an obsessed mess ! It didn’t happen for months , maybe years ! I think the last was while I was marathoning The Infernal Devices !
  • Six Of Crows by Leigh Bardugo ! I finished it yesterday and I am so glad I decided not to be afraid of the hype !
  • City Of Bones by Cassandra Clare. It’s one of the first book I read in English when I decided that the original version was better. Cassandra Clare’s books are a big part of why I decided to keep reading in English.
  • Clockwork Angel and the whole The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare ! It’s my favorite trilogy ever and gah ! I can’t put words on what these books made me feel !
  • The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson because it reconnected me with the “classic” fantasy !

And finally Heir Of Fire and Queen Of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas ! Because I read them with Donna from chocolatenwafflesblog ! Thanks to these books, I got to know a wonderful and funny person !

That’s it ! The 10 books I’m the most thankful for !


top-ten-tuesdayHello lovelies ! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday ! TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke And The Bookish.

This week’s topic is audio freebie. I decided to list my top ten songs that made me think of books.
You know when a song reminds you of a book you’re currently reading ? That’s what I’m talking about !

Just Like Fire by P!nk reminds me a lot of Clary Fray from The Mortal Instruments series. It suits her perfectly and that’s the song that inspired this post !
Part Of Me by Katy Perry makes me think of Celaena Sardothien from the Throne Of Glass series.
Eye Of The Tiger makes me think of Alex from the Covenant series. The fighting spirit she’s got matches perfectly with this song !
Unconditionally by Katy Perry reminds me of Claire and Jamie’s romance. Outlander is such an amazing series !

I knew you were trouble by Taylor Swift is perfect for After‘s Tessa and Hardin. Their back and forth relationship.
Shatter Me by Lindsey Stirling and Lzzy Hale is perfect for Fallon from November 9.
Cake by The Ocean by DNCE matches All Played Out.

That’s it ! My TTT is a top seven hahahaha !


TOP TEN TUESDAYHello lovelies ! How is your week so far ??  Mine was pretty hectic. In case you don’t know what it is, Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.
Today’s theme is rewind. I chose top ten books that made me cry.

Colleen Hoover’s books, especially these 3 (even though I’m sure It Ends With Us will be featured on this list). Her books hold the power to break my heart without mercy !

Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell, I read it years ago but I remember the tears haha.
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes is a book that made me cry so much earlier this year. In the same genre, there are After by Anna Todd and Anna And The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins.

But fantasy books can also make me cry. For example, The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson, The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead and The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas. I can’t tell why because of spoilers !

That’s it ! I tried to avoid the obvious answers, such as The Infernal Devices or Harry Potter !

Link me your TTT, I wanna see the topics you’ve chosen !


April wrap up

Hello everyone ! I’m a day late, but here’s my April wrap up !

I finished a total of 4 books this month, which is fine because two of them are hefty books !



Me Before You by Jojo Moyes.
I gave this book 5 stars. It changed my vision of life. Seriously. This book is THAT good. I can’t rave enough about it. If you haven’t read it, what are you waiting for ??

November 9 by Colleen Hoover
Another 5 stars. I was afraid to read that one right after Me Before You to be honest. But oh boy, it didn’t disappoint. It broke my heart, then mended it back together. It’s such a great book !

City Of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
It’s a reread. Finally. I’ve reread all the TID and TMI books ! I can now read the Tales of the Shadowhunter Academy AND Lady Midnight.
I gave it 5 stars, too !

Dragonfly In Amber by Diana Gabaldon
Yep. I finally finished this book. I had issues with the first part, which was lacking action. But once that part finished, it was really great ! And that ending ! I still need to write my review for that one !

And that’s all ! What have you read this month ?




november9November 9
Author : Colleen Hoover
Genres : Contemporary, New Adult
Publication : November 10th 2015 by Atria Books

Goodreads’ synopsis : Beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover returns with an unforgettable love story between a writer and his unexpected muse.

Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day before her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel. Over time and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet on the same date every year. Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist.

And another 5 stars for a Colleen Hoover’s book ! That’s not surprising, though.

You’ll never be able to find yourself if you’re lost in someone else.

Plot :
In this book, we only get to read about a day per year, which is, you have guessed, November 9th. Our two main characters Fallon and Ben are only interacting on this day, every year.
There’s a strong connection between them that started the moment they saw each other. Ben is a writer while Fallon is an actress.

When you find love, you take it. You grab it with both hands and you do everything in your power not to let it go. You can’t just walk away from it and expect it to linger until you’re ready for it.

I must admit, I was really afraid about this book’s concept. I thought it would be difficult to connect with the characters. Well, I was wrong haha !

This book is really addicting ! I was happy to dive into another CoHo’s book. Once again, I connected easily with the story, and it was really hard when I had to put the book down.

Fallon is suffering from a huge lack of self-confidence, but she is determined to change her life for the best. Ben is living a hell of a life, but we don’t learn a lot about it until the last part of the book.

I loved all these bookish references ! The fact that Fallon is an avid reader allowed so many bookish terms. Instant love, bookish boyfriend and other book worthy kisses made me smile. These are terms we are commonly using in our reviews so it was really funny. I totally could speak like that in my everyday life (if only I had more avid readers among my friends…).
I really like it when a book acknowledges our bookish world haha !

Fallon and Ben’s story is pretty unique and their journey isn’t an easy one.

I had some issues with a particular part of the book. I didn’t see that plot twist coming and I was really shocked ! I had to put down the book (throw it on the couch, actually), and ponders about these events for a little while (stares meanly at the book). I am still not okay with it, but I think that this kind of situations tends to happen. And OMG it’s really hard to talk about it without spoilers !

Now about the final plot twist… What the hell ! I should have seen that coming but no ! Ha !
So yeah this story is full of plot twists and it makes this story even more interesting !

Characters :
I’m not gonna say much about them because it’s better if you don’t know too much while reading this book.
I just want to say that the characters’ development is really well led. Since we make a jump of a year at the beginning of each part, it’s really obvious how much they changed.

She’s not the kind of girl you choose your battles for. She’s the kind of girl you fight to the death for.

Overall :
This book played with my heart and my mind. I was heartbroken 3 or 4 times while reading it. But don’t worry it also mended it back together !
Reading a Colleen Hoover’s book is like doing sport, when it comes to my heart. It beats, pounds, stops abruptly and then it restarts.

I love her books because I know I’m in for a hell of an emotional ride ! They are always more than just another contemporary book. They always have something original.
She’s one of my auto buy authors. Her writing style is really fantastic and I keep some of her books unread because I want to have one ready whenever I’m having a reading slump. Don’t know how long I will resist before reading all of them though haha !

She “loved me” in quotations She kissed me in bold I TRIED TO KEEP HER in all caps She left with an ellipsis . . .

5 stars
