Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Who is the fairest of them all?
Fans of the Lunar Chronicles know Queen Levana as a ruler who uses her “glamour” to gain power. But long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, Levana lived a very different story – a story that has never been told . . . until now.
My first thought: I felt like I had just read a fantasy and young adult version of Gone Girl.

Genre: Romance, Contemporary, Realistic, YA
1 ill-fated hot dog costume. 2 former BFFs. 11 days to seduce a boy.
Avery James doesn’t believe in romance—she’s studied enough biology to know that love is nothing more than hormones and chemicals. Besides, she has more practical goals in mind, namely saving up for a summer humanitarian program in Costa Rica. But when her Diggity Dog House supervisor denies her a raise and Avery finds herself $500 dollars short for the trip of a lifetime, Avery has no choice but to accept an unexpected offer. The deal? She must steal her arch nemesis Hannah’s boyfriend before prom, giving Avery eleven days to seduce Zac Greeley.
Avery is sure the job will be easy. But a few midnight comedy shows and spontaneous dance parties (not to mention one particularly intimate carwash) later, Avery finds herself questioning everything she’s ever thought about love. Could Zac’s signature cherry-lime Slurpees be causing brain freeze, or is Avery actually starting to fall for him?
Will Avery be able to steal Zac away from Hannah before he steals Avery’s heart?
OMG CITIZENS OF THE BLOGOSPHERE I’VE MISSED YOU GUYS SO MUCH! ❤.❤
First thing first, I need to apologise. I’M TRULY SORRY! I went on a lengthy hiatus without telling any of you. I was stress overloaded! As I learnt in Psychology, I was constantly on sympathetic mode which caused *cough cough* erm, several nervous breakdowns when exam time came around! But guess what?
I SURVIVED 6 YEARS OF HIGH SCHOOL! ALSO I’M GOING TO UNIVERSITY THIS YEAR!
Thank you Professor Minerva McGonagall, I know you’re very proud of me. English has always been my (not-so-secret) struggle as it’s my third language and have only been learning it properly for 7 years. But nailing high school and being the first in my family to attend university means I have the chance of making a change in the world. Whether it’s to inspire someone to strive for their education or to influence them to begin their reading journey – at least I’ve done something right. But really, I wouldn’t be able to come this far without Rapunzel (my Kindle), my supportive best friends and my dearest family. Here’s a shout out to them!
Okay, let’s put aside my attempted inspirational talk and get onto the blogging business.
I am very happy to say that I will be participating and become active once more within the YA & NA blogosphere. I’ve just finished The Boyfriend Thief by Shana Norris, so the review will be coming right up! Gosh, I can’t wait to catch up with all of you in this coming months and begin my Shine The Book project! One thing that has changed…surprisingly…is my obsession towards eBooks over paperbacks.
