| COVER CRUSH | Dragons – gotta love those fire-breathing winged creatures ;)

Last week I posted a new cover crush article online, High in the Sky , in which book covers with galaxy/stars/sky were shown. Readers could vote for a new cover subject at the end of that article. I always like to let you guys choose which subject I’ll be showing you in the next article. You guys decided DRAGONS would be today’s focus!

| DUTCH REVIEW | Tweestrijd van Gail McHugh (#1 Collide)

Als ik kijk naar de ratings op Goodreads en de Nederlandse recensies die binnendruppelen denk ik; heb ik wat gemist? Is er iets mis met mij? Rebecca Yarros, een van mijn all-time favoriete auteurs gaf het boek een 5 sterren rating.

| MELISSA’S MONDAY MEMORIES | June 5th – June 11th

Last week started off with spending some time with my friends before they returned home, a lot of ‘normal’ stuff throughout the week and ended it with a birthday, seeing a movie and some summer fun in the weekend.  I’ve been somewhat restless which resulted in little reading, little blogging and little bujo’ing.

| REVIEW – New Adult/Novella | Ignite by Rebecca Yarros (Legacy, #0.75)

I need MORE, like RIGHT NOW please?!!! That’s what I first thought when I finished this read. And now here I am, behind my desktop, after just finishing my 7th Rebecca Yarros story. And every time I want to write a review of one of her books, I’m at a loss for words, because there aren’t enough words out there to do this author justice.  Her writing is so flawless and amazing, it blows me away Read More
