Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful week! For today’s post I will be reviewing the new release from Entangled Teen entitled “Why I Loathe Sterling Lane” by Ingrid Paulson. Thank you to Entangled Teen this amazing opportunity! I was able to receive an e-ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Summary from GoodReads

“Per her 537 rules, Harper Campbell keeps her life tidy—academically and socially. But the moment Sterling Lane transfers into her tiny boarding school, her twin brother gets swept up in Sterling’s pranks and schemes and nearly gets expelled. Harper knows it’s Sterling’s fault, and to protect her brother, she vows to take him down. As she exposes his endless school violations, he keeps striking back, framing her for his own infractions. Worst of all, he’s charmed the administration into thinking he’s harmless, and only Harper sees him for the troublemaker he absolutely is.

As she breaks rule after precious rule in her battle of wits against Sterling and tension between them hits a boiling point, she’s horrified to discover that perhaps the two of them aren’t so different. And maybe she doesn’t entirely hate him after all. Teaming up with Sterling to save her brother might be the only way to keep from breaking the most important rule—protecting Cole.”

My Thoughts

I absolutely love these types of books since they are quite refreshing and a breath of fresh air from the hardcore, dark and epic fantasies novels which I am usually swept up by. I really enjoyed reading about Harper as a character; she is very meticulous in everything she does and is pretty much a studious girl with very high grades. Sterling on the other hand is the complete opposite and is a trouble maker and I loved seeing the relationship between these two unfold. While the story is predictable in its plot that this is a hate to love type scenario, it was quite enjoyable to read. If you are looking for a read that will pick you up from your low spirits, this is the one! There were times were I was pretty much laughing at the quirky scenes between the two main characters. They truly did put a smile on my face! I also love how everything flowed together towards the ending, where Harper does grow through some character development where she learns not to live life by rules but with freedom and true happiness.

That’s all for now!

Until next time, keep reading and I will see you all soon with another post!

Ahem . . anyways, I just wanted to share a quick blog post with you all about my most anticipated releases this year. It’s already MAY and we have seen fabulous YA books so far but there are some upcoming releases which I am super excited for. So without further ado, let’s get right to it.

TOP 5 MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASES

Fury Rising by Jeyn Roberts (May 16th 2016 – tentative) 

GoodReads

This is actually the final book of the Dark Inside series and I am so surprised that no one on Booktube had ever mentioned it. This series is definitely one of those underrated books which deserves the recognition. It takes and interesting twist on dystopian/apocalyptic genre questioning human values, strength and courage and I would recommend you all to try it out for yourselves.

A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir (August 30th 2016) 

GoodReads

If you have been following me, then you pretty much know how much I adored the first book of this series: An Ember in the Ashes. It is such a brutal world and you can’t help but connect and feel so much for the characters. I certainly hope the second book will be just as good or even better.

Fever Code by James Dashner (September 27th 2016)

GoodReads

I absolutely love The MazeRunner series as well as the movie line. The characters are just so awesome and they are equally well portrayed in the film. The Death Cure is going to be released next year and I don’t know if I will be able to handle it. THE FEELS MAN!

Also, I hope Dylan O’ Brian recovers from his injuries.It’s just really heartbreaking since he is a pretty chill, down to earth guy that something like this would happen to him. But nevertheless, you have to stay positive so I wish him the very best.

The Fever Code is basically  a prequel to the entire MazeRunner series which details everything that happened before Thomas first arrives in the glade. I feel like we are going to get more stories on our favorite characters (Newt, Minho hehe) and I can’t wait for this one. James Dashner also gave us a sneak peek into the book with the release of prologue in Newt’s POV. You can it check out HERE (Hope you Newt lovers are able to handle it)

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (September 27th 2016)

GoodReads

I loved Six of Crows and I know I will definitely love the sequel, Crooked Kingdom. How awesome is the premise though? A group of criminals trying to pull off an impossible heist. It was so captivating and the world was so different from anything else I read that I was automatically drawn to it. I can’t wait to see where the plot goes from the ending of the first book. I NEED TO KNOW!!

Heartless by Marissa Meyer (November 8th 2016)

GoodReads

After reading the Lunar Chronicles, I have officially become a fan of Marissa Meyer and her writing. Her creativity and writing style is just so mind blowing that I am sure I will pretty much read every book that she releases from this day forward. As soon as I found out that she is writing another fairy tale re-telling/prequel, I was super excited. Heartless is going to be a prequel to the Queen of Hearts and I have a feeling that this is going to be awesome!

Those are the books which I am looking forward to this year. How about you guys?

Hello everyone! Hope you all are having a great week!

This is a bit late but Sabaa Tahir had recently unveiled the cover to her sequel for An Ember in the Ashes and I have to say it’s absolutely GORGEOUS! Not only that, she also revealed a sneak peak to her first chapter for the sequel which you can read HERE.

If you guys haven’t read An Ember in the Ashes, I highly recommend that you do! It’s a great Dystopian/Fantasy novel which I read last month and completely enjoyed. Seriously guys, I stayed up till 4AM to finish this and I ended up reading it in one sitting. It was that addicting! I will be uploading a review soon.

Are you guys excited for her new book???
