Some Happy News!

I created the Chibi Reader blog last November and since then I’ve been trying to post something every week, be it reviews, cover reveals or not so often random ramblings (things that I wanted to post more often but…). So, it’s with great joy that I tell you that we have a new reviewer at Chibi Reader!

To show how happy I am I found some GIFs that basically show my reaction when I finally found a person to be my co-blogger.

What  will  this do to Chibi Reader? Well, for starters, Chibi Reader will be updated more often. This means more reviews, maybe some commenting about a book we both are reading, who knows, this may lead to some review wars, and hopefully some non-sense, amazing and absolutely useless posts!

But who is this person? You have to wait no further to know! I’ll let her take care of her own introduction to the world of book blogging. Take it away, Sofyy!

Hey guys! I’m Sofyy and I love to read! (duh!) I’ve always thought about creating a blog and review books, but I never actually did it.  So, when I met Ana and she told she was a reviewer, I thought seriously about it and decided for once and for all that I should do it as well xD Thank you Ana for making it happen ahaha, or else I would still be wondering about it…

I hope I can write good reviews, I promise I’ll do my best and update as often as I can! 🙂

Welcome to Gryffindor! Uh, Chibi Reader.

Hey, guys! Ana here again. So, I think this will be really good for the blog and will make it better in every way! Let’s just hope I don’t scare Sofyy away AH!

Book Review: Ink by Amanda Sun

Ink by Amanda Sun

Series: Paper Gods (#1)

Published: July 5th 2013

Publisher: Mira Ink (Harlequin UK Limited)

Goodreads: On the heels of a family tragedy, Katie Greene must move halfway across the world. Stuck with her aunt in Shizuoka, Japan, Katie feels lost. Alone. She doesn’t know the language, she can barely hold a pair of chopsticks, and she can’t seem to get the hang of taking her shoes off whenever she enters a building.
When Katie meets aloof but gorgeous Tomohiro, the star of the school’s kendo team, she is intrigued by him… and a little scared. His tough attitude seems meant to keep her at a distance, and when they’re near each other, strange things happen. Pens explode. Ink drips from nowhere. And unless Katie is seeing things, drawings come to life.
Somehow Tomo is connected to the kami, powerful ancient beings who once ruled Japan—and as feelings develop between Katie and Tomo, things begin to spiral out of control. The wrong people are starting to ask questions, and if they discover the truth, no one will be safe.”

Review

I was looking for a book to read on Goodreads when I came upon Ink. As soon as I  read the word “Japan” on the blurb I said “I MUST HAVE THIS!”. Ok, some yelling may have been involved as well as some embarrassing dancing from happiness.

Book Review: The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa

The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa 

Series: Blood of Eden (#2)

Published: 30th April 2013

Publisher: Harlequin

Goodreads: “Allison Sekemoto has vowed to rescue her creator, Kanin, who is being held hostage and tortured by the psychotic vampire Sarren. The call of blood leads her back to the beginning—New Covington and the Fringe, and a vampire prince who wants her dead yet may become her wary ally.

Even as Allie faces shocking revelations and heartbreak like she’s never known, a new strain of the Red Lung virus that decimated humanity is rising to threaten human and vampire alike.”

Review

“I have no words to describe how I feel” where my first thoughts as soon as I finished reading The Eternity Cure. Julie Kagawa did not disappoint and delivered us a spectacular sequel. In my opinion The Eternity Cure is even better than The Immortal Rules! It was pure awesomesauce. I devoured it in one day!

Publisher: Harper Teen

Goodreads:The past few years have held more surprises than part-angel Clara Gardner could ever have anticipated. Yet from the dizzying highs of first love, to the agonizing low of losing someone close to her, the one thing she can no longer deny is that she was never meant to live a normal life. Since discovering the special role she plays among the other angel-bloods, Clara has been determined to protect Tucker Avery from the evil that follows her . . . even if it means breaking both their hearts. Leaving town seems like the best option, so she’s headed back to California – and so is Christian Prescott, the irresistible boy from the vision that started her on this journey in the first place. As Clara makes her way in a world that is frighteningly new, she discovers that the fallen angel who attacked her is watching her every move. And he’s not the only one. . . . With the battle against the Black Wings looming, Clara knows she must finally fulfill her destiny. But it won’t come without sacrifices and betrayal. In the riveting finale of the Unearthly series, Clara must decide her fate once and for all.”

Review

Aaannnnnd another series comes to an end. To be honest, I didn’t want to read this book. Ok, I WANTED to read this book but I just couldn’t imagine Clara, Tucker and Christian’s journey to end.

Book Review: Wait for You by J.Lynn

Wait for you by J. Lynn

Series: Wait for You (#1)

Published: February 26th 2013

Publisher: Self-published

Goodreads: “Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life. All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to herself, and maybe—please God—make a few friends, because surely that would be a nice change of pace. The one thing she didn’t need and never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she’s building for herself. Cameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make her want things she believed were irrevocably stolen from her. She knows she needs to stay away from him, but Cam is freaking everywhere, with his charm, his witty banter, and that damn dimple that’s just so… so lickable. Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring the simmering tension that sparks whenever they are around each other becomes impossible, he brings out a side of her she never knew existed. But when Avery starts receiving threatening emails and phone calls forcing her to face a past she wants silenced, she’s has no other choice but to acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. When the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface this time with one less scar? And can Cam be there to help her or will he be dragged down with her?”

Review

My three most dangerous addictions are manga, K-Pop and a good contemporary book. You put one of these things in front of me you won’t see me until I want to be seen. This is what happened. J. Lynn released a contemporary book with an awesome cover and I holed up in my room for a day until I was finished with it. Whenever my parents wanted me to get out of the house and walk the dogs my immediate response was:

When someone tells me to get of the internet and be social.
