Google doesn’t love me anymore :( feedburner trouble!

I just read a blog post on one of the blogs I am following about feedburner, and how it won’t be working anymore. I have used feedburner since I started blogging, but I have noticed lately that it tells me that I don’t have any followers anymore. That’s OK, people sometimes change their mind, and maybe they just aren’t that interested in my stuff, or they don’t have time to read and follow as many posts as they used to. However, this post tells a different story. Google seems to really prefer bloggers who use blogspot or blogger, not wordpress. I just wish I had set up my blog right here from the very beginning! It’s not that I want […]

Review: Slammed (Slammed #1) – Colleen Hoover

Review: Slammed (Slammed #1) – Colleen Hoover

*I received a free ARC of Slammed from Simon & Schuster via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review* Slammed blew me away, I laughed, I cried and my heart was broken, then fixed again! Lake has to be one of the best and strongest female MC’s I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know ever. And Will is exceptional as well. The hand life handed those two was not the easiest hand to be dealt, but they did deal with it, and they did it in an amazing way! They both have to face responsibilities most people their age have the luck not to meet yet, and they made some choices where they put others’ needs in front of […]

Review: The Devil in Silver – Victor LaValle

Review: The Devil in Silver – Victor LaValle

*I received a free ARC of The Devil in Silver from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review* *Trigger warnings : suicide, abuse by people in a situation of power, murder* In the beginning, Pepper thinks it’s going to be easy to stay a few days in the psych ward – whatever could happen to him there, right? He learns differently already the first morning, when he gets his medication and immediately loses over an hour of his life due to the medicated haze. He soon realizes that life as he knew it will never be the same, even if he only has to stay for 72 hours. His brain is sluggish, his body doesn’t respond the way he thinks […]

Just One Night (Rebels With a Cause #1) – Eve Gaddy

Just One Night (Rebels With a Cause #1) – Eve Gaddy

*I received a free ARC of Just One Night from Bell Bridge Books via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review* I did quite enjoy this book, but I had to take some points off for clichés, insta-love and predictability. If you want to read something quick, romantic and a little hot, with a splash of mystery and some conflicts of interest, this should hit exactly the right spot.

Review: Iron’s Prophecy (The Iron Fey #4.5) – Julie Kagawa

Review: Iron’s Prophecy (The Iron Fey #4.5) – Julie Kagawa

Iron’s Prophecy probably would have gotten 5 stars from me if I had read this before I read The Lost Prince. I just needed some more Iron Fey, and I loved the interactions between Ash and Meghan, and Puck was his usual self – smirking and joking even in serious situations. And there were some glimpses of Mab, Oberon and Tatiania as well – which was nice – because Meghan could show her ‘regal-ness’ when dealing with them. She showed that she is not afraid of either of them, and that yes, she is indeed the Iron Queen. I loved how Meghan and Ash interacted! They just seemed so much in love, and their friendship and respect for each other […]

The Truth About Lilly Barnes – Kimberly Russel

The Truth About Lilly Barnes – Kimberly Russel

*I received a free copy of The Truth About Lilly Barnes in exchange for an honest review, and also to participate in a blog tour as well as a giveaway * To participate in the giveaway, please click here The Truth About Lilly Barnes was very hard to read! It is about a 17-year-old girl, Lilly, and it starts with what she has planned to be her last day. It certainly has a lot of triggers, both about suicide, sexual assault, anorexia and OCD. I think it is only fair to warn you, so that if any of those things might be a trigger for you, stop reading even this review right now! Lilly has planned her own death for […]
