Hannah Cho and Nick Cooper have been best friends since 8th grade. They talk for hours on the phone, regularly shower each other with presents, and know everything there is to know about one another.

There's just one problem: Hannah and Nick have never actually met.

Hannah has spent her entire life doing what she's supposed to, but when her senior year spring break plans get ruined by a rule-breaker, she decides to break a rule or two herself. She impulsively decides to road trip to Las Vegas, her older sister and BFF in tow, to surprise Nick and finally declare her more-than-friend feelings for him.

Hannah's surprise romantic gesture backfires when she gets to Vegas and finds out that Nick has been keeping some major secrets. Hannah knows the real Nick can't be that different from the online Nick she knows and loves, but now she only has night in Sin City to figure out what her feelings for Nick really are, all while discovering how life can change when you break the rules every now and then.

Book Haul: January-April

It's time for a BOOK HAUL, consisting of 10 new awesome books. I've been collecting these books for a few months and I'm excited to finally share them with you :)

Landline by Rainbow Rowell

I read Landline a while back as an e-book and I really enjoyed it, and therefore I decided to buy myself a physical copy.

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

Everything, Everything was definitely a favorite back when I read it in December (I gave it 5+ out of 5 stars). Now I'm not so sure about it being a favorite. I loved it though, and still do. It's fantastic and so is the cover. I just love beautiful covers.

Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

I have yet to read all the books in the Throne of Glass series, except the first book which is Throne of Glass. I loved it and I can't wait to continue reading the rest of the books. I have heard nothing but amazing things about this series.

Harry Potter #4-7 by J.K. Rowling

I'm finally a proud owner of the complete HP collection. WOW, I'm thrilled. The books are beautiful and the story is INCREDIBLE. But... I still haven't read past the first three books... Don't hate me. I can't wait to read the other books though.

The Winner's Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

I'm in love with the first two books of The Winner's Trilogy, and I'm so excited to read The Winner's Kiss, the last book in the series. I have really high expectations and I guess that's the reason why I haven't picked the book up yet. I'm scared of what's going to happen. So scared.

Four by Veronica Roth

I hadn't planned to buy nor read Four in the first place, but I found it on sale so I picked it up. I quite enjoyed it and I'm happy I actually decided to read it.

The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare et al.

I have read one and a half book by Cassandra Clare before. I finished City of Bones (it was really bad in Swedish, but somehow I gave it 5 stars - that's such a lie-rating) and DNF:ed Clockwork Angel (I lost interest in the story but I'm actually missing the book). I bought this book for the same reason as above, it was cheap.

Review: Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke

Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke

Series: - • Published: March 22nd 2016 by Dial Books
Pages: 352 • Format: E-book • Genres: Young Adult, Mystery
Goodreads | The Book Depository | Amazon | Website

Rating: 2/5 stars

Every story needs a hero.
Every story needs a villain.
Every story needs a secret.

Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous.

What really happened?
Someone knows.
Someone is lying.
