It is so hard to leave—until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.

I hope one day someone will turn their songs to real ones because they look awesome

Jillylovesbooks Reese Witherspoon is helping to develop it into a TV series so I‘m hoping that means the songs will be included. 4mo

I mostly listened to its audiobook. I think, I enjoyed the book because I was listening to it rather than reading it. The interview style wasn't for me. Just kept mismatching the characters' voices in my head.
The storyline is awesome. The ending was unexpected and great. Warning: You will cry. Take measures.
I enjoyed/liked this book but didn't love it. It is not a pick pick but still is more than a so-so.

I never like steamy and smutty romance but The Kiss Quotient and The Bride Test are exceptions. I love the way the author describes the characters. Never thought that a book without antagonism will be fun to read but I was wrong. The steamy parts with Esme and Khai are awesome and funny. But the part we they interact with others... well prepare to laugh ALOT.
I love the ending, the best closure we could get. Can't wait for Quan's book.

I hope this is as good as Kiss Quotient 🤞

This book has too many foreign words that I couldn't find a translator for... 😣 All foreign languages (non English) included do not use latin letters. 😔
But the quotes.... OMG some of them are amazing.

Mehso-so

This book looked promising but it had a very slow pace for me. On contrary, the ending was rushed and unsatisfactory. The foreign words made the story extremely confusing and half of the time I ended up guessing. Moreover, as intriguing as it may sounds, I didn't like the verse POV. It interrupted my reading flow and lacked of rhythm and poetry. This book had a potential to be more magical, surprising and captivating. Unfortunately, it was not.

It's been a few months that I haven't read any fantasy. Thus, it felt good to reading again my fav genre. This book has an amazing storyline and amazing strong willed characters. I loved the concept of magical grimoires and the whole idea of the magical libraries. The writing is perfect and the story line just keeps you glued to the book. A book to not be missed.

I liked the start but it went downhill from there.I just had to finish it as I never leave a book unfinished but won't continue the series.I love fantasies but this flow is out of any possible logic.It made no sense to me.The clues made no sense. Just wondering around and guessing most of the time.
Oh... I just hate all characters. None of them were intriguing enough to keep me reading, and they were all annoying to no end.

blurb
Riis_Books

It may be an unpopular opinion but I sympathise with Madeline's mum. I can understand the reason behind all her actions. Some of those decision are horrible, but she is still a mommy trying to protected her baby (or thinking that she is).

quote
Riis_Books

“Sometimes I reread my favorite books from back to front. I start with the last chapter and read backward until I get to the beginning. When you read this way, characters go from hope to despair, from self-knowledge to doubt. In love stories, couples start out as lovers and end as strangers. Coming-of-age books become stories of losing your way. Your favorite characters come back to life.”

Everything, Everything is a risk and awesome. A quick and easy read.
It isn't all about a very ill teenager girl.The characters are well written and reliable. Some may judge that the end is predictable but still it is enjoyable and the best it could have happened. I also loved the writing style of the book. All Maddy's note - full of pictures, emails and her diagrams - are incorporated through all the book. It was awesome.

The Kiss Quotient | Helen Hoang

“This crusade to fix herself was ending right now. She wasn't broken. She saw and interacted with the world in a different way, but that was her. She could change her actions, change her words, change her appearance, but she couldn't change the root of herself. At her core, she would always be autistic. People called it a disorder, but it didn't feel like one. To her, it was simply the way she was.”

Kiss Quotient | Helen Hoang

I love Michael. He is the ultimate boyfriend. He is extremely handsome. He is thoughtful. He is smart. He is sweet. He is protective. And maybe not all time an awesome trade, selfless. No misunderstanding... I hate selfish people but if your guy is an all-time selfless, he might losses himself in helping the others and a girl does not want someone lost.

Helen Hoang is my new favorite author.
If a book is receiving too much hype, I usually end up disappointed. But this is not the case. The Kiss Quotient is awesome. I'm not a fan of romances but this book is not only romance.I highly enjoyed reading it and I was always grinning. I loved this book from the first letter to the last. It brings an unique point of view. I wish there were more fictions this much refreshing. The Kiss Quotient was perfect.

This book got me that much enraged that I wanted to scream at my fiancé just because he is a man, as if he was guilty of what those idiot-lunatic-male characters were doing.

VOX is full of tension.This book is extremely well written.
However, the story lacks of energy and adventure.When the adventure knocked on the door, the story flew quickly and the end came running.
Lastly...
Many says it is the importance of VOICE but since in the beginning I saw the consequences of not exercising the right to VOTE.
When people do not exercise their VOTE, lunatics start ruling.
