I've read 8 books till now in 2016 but have reviewed none. So here are my thoughts about the books I've read so far:
Divergent (Divergent #1) by Veronica Roth
8/10. Wow! Dystopian might be my new favorite genre! I loved Divergent! The story was really interesting and the world-building was amazing! My favorite part about the book were the characters. I hardly ever get attached to characters the way I did with Tris. It felt like she was a friend. And I desperately wanted to be there for her. Overall an amazing book! I can see what all the hype is about!
Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth
7/10. This kinda fell short. It was good, the story was interesting, I still loved the characters. But it was draggy. It had too many scenes where nothing happened and as a result I struggled to finish it.
Wish You Were Italian by Kristin Rae
9/10. This was such a cute book! I've always wanted to go to Europe. But since I can't for now, I sort of fulfill my dream through books set in Europe. Not only was Italy so amazing and fun, the story was super adorable and I fell in love with the characters! It had a 'Anna & The French Kiss' like feel and easily one of my favorite books.
Proposal (The Mediator #6.5) by Meg Cabot
10/10. I was so beyond excited for this and the 7th book! I'm a HUGE Mediator fan! So naturally I loved this! I love how it has the same elements the previous books did, my beloved characters are just as badass and adorable, but I also love the adult aspect added to the book. My babies all grown up. :') I can't wait to read the seventh book!
Every Boy's Got One (Boy #3) by Meg Cabot
6/10. It was short and sweet. Not very memorable. Enjoyable at the moment but to be honest I don't even remember the characters' names anymore. So can't say much about this one.
Point of Retreat (Slammed #2) by Colleen Hoover
DNF. I LOVED Slammed. So I was expecting to love Point of Retreat as well. And I tried to love it. I tried so hard. And yet... There was just too much drama. It was like I was watching a soap opera. And I've never liked those. And when the drama of all dramas happened I was like no. Can't do this anymore. I love CoHo but I just couldn't with this one.
Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
8/10. I've been wanting to read a New Adult for ages and I've heard a lot of good stuff about Ugly Love so when I finally got my hands on it I was ecstatic! And it was amazing! Though not as amazing as I was expecting it to be. But it came close. Very close. I loved the characters, the relationships, the story. And I might even have shed some tears.
The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins
8/10. Loved it! Awesome thriller! Though it did not quite live up to the hype, I was expecting something more heart-racing, it was pretty good. It was a calm, silent type of thriller. I liked the unpredictability of the characters. And I never saw the twist coming. It kept me engaged and I really enjoyed it.

I haven't posted at all since medschool started. Not because I didn't have time. Well that's one of the reasons. But also because I didn't feel like it. I didn't feel like blogging or reading or writing or watching any of my favorite shows. It was like with medschool this part of my life ended. And I wasn't exactly sad. I went out with friends, I actually enjoyed studying, and the free time I got I made sure to catch up on my sleep. But I did miss this part of me. I missed immersing myself in a book. I missed being excited about writing. I missed watching all my favorite shows. And yet I didn't feel like doing anything about it.
Now that summer vacation rolled around I have had a chance to reconnect with my old self. I've started writing again which feels so amazing! I've been devouring book after book. I have yet to catch up on my shows but I'm getting there. And I've decided to start blogging again. I'll be posting reviews again and some other more personal stuff like my first year as a medstudent. So stay tuned! And I hope I'm able to continue this when school starts again...
