REVIEW: Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler

I was on a YA high when I decided to give this book another chance.  Although it hits a little too close to home, I have to admit Daniel Handler’s Why We Broke Up perfectly illustrates the overthinking and mild psychosis as each relationship ends, whether it was just a budding romance or dinner-party-planning-a-month-ahead kind of thing.

REVIEW: Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

I felt compelled to use the ampersand more than anything else, because Eleanor & Park, you know.

I am looking forward to be Perk’d.

I read this book early this year and it has rekindled my love for young adult stories.  I know I seem to old for it, but I don’t really give a flying F.

Marga repeatedly told me that it was depressing, but for some reason, I found it comforting.  Maybe because it’s a good indication that I’m just among the many troubled minds out there, and just like them, I too seek clarity.

Here’s the official trailer of The Perks of Being a Wallflower:


And this being an Emma Watson post-Potter flick is just a plus.


Tell me you’re excited too! :)
