A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

I should probably let a few days pass before I write this review. But it feels like I should do justice to the book and do it now. My heart is gone. It hasn’t been broken; it has been turned to dust. Beauty has that kind of power. So do certain kinds of sadness. And,…

Shatter Me (Shatter Me #1) by Tahereh Mafi

I’ve been half-unconsciously avoiding writing this review. This book is, by far, one of the hardest books to comment I’ve ever read in my life. As I’ve been saying to my friends who care about books, this is like The Vampire Diaries but in book-form – which doesn’t particularly make sense since The Vampire Diaries…
