There is a secret organization that cultivates teenage spies. The agents are called Love Interests because getting close to people destined for great power means getting valuable secrets.

Caden is a Nice: the boy next door, sculpted to physical perfection. Dylan is a Bad: the brooding, dark-souled guy who is dangerously handsome. The girl they are competing for is important to the organization, and each boy will pursue her. Will she choose the Nice or the Bad?

Both Caden and Dylan are living in the outside world for the first time. They are well-trained and at the top of their games. They have to be—whoever the girl doesn’t choose will die.

What the boys don’t expect are feelings that are outside of their training. Feelings that could kill them both.

UPDATE: I AM B.A.C.K

Yess, you heard that right! I am back after a long 20 days hiatus because my exams were going on and they just ended and I am so happy I could burst into tears.That made sense, right??I hope.

Anyhoo, you know what comes after semester end, the long dreaded summer break which I am going to take full advantage of and MAY is sounding promising already.

Regarding what I am reading currently, I just finished Eliza and Her Monsters and it is so good and I want everyone to read it.My review will be up on the blog soon.

I am also starting The Mortal Instruments series again.I read the first two books a very long time ago and I wanted to continue the series but I don’t remember a lick of it so I am re-reading those two again.

And you may have noticed that my blog got a new makeover and as to why? Well, I just finished my exams and my fingers were itching to create something so I thought let’s experiment on the blog.

That is how my May month went and why I have been absent.So what have you guys been reading? How was your May month?

Mini Review: Geekerella//A geeky fairytale

geek

I have been meaning to review this wonderful book for a while but I didn’t get the time to do that because of my exams but now I can finally fangirl over this book 🙂

I have this feeling of excitement whenever I start a retelling.I can’t really explain it but I didn’t expect much from this book because I DO NOT like the story of Cinderella.The magic shoe and the Prince just put me off, don’t even ask me why. And I hate the way the relation between stepsisters are presented.Not a big fan of that.

But I am glad that I had the chance to read this wonderful fairytale (which is not so much of a fairytale).

Things I Liked:

• The story or the fanfiction it’s based on.There is this sci-fi show that the Danielle (MC) loves and I loved it too surprisingly.

• The fact that both the sisters in this are not evil as opposed to the fairytale.Calliope is the nice one and Chloe is the stepsister.

• Sage is the best thing in this book! Compared to others,I loved her character so much.And Darien too.But I have to say that I am not a big fan of Elle.

• The cutesy orange food truck which sells vegan food.I don’t why but that truck is kind of stuck in my mind.

• I was in geek heaven most of the time I was reading.The convention, the movie references, the hardcore fangirling over something you love

Story-wise, I have to say that it might not offer something new but the way the story is told and amazing characters with a dash of cute and adorable romance makes this a perfect and fun read.

Synopsis

30724132Name: Geekerella
Author: Ashley Poston
Publisher: Quirk Books
Publication date: April 4th,2017
Part of a series?: Nope,a standalone
Genre: YA,Contemporary,Retellings

Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the classic sci-fi series she grew up watching with her late father. So when she sees a cosplay contest for a new Starfield movie, she has to enter. The prize? An invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball, and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. With savings from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck (and her dad’s old costume), Elle’s determined to win…unless her stepsisters get there first.

Teen actor Darien Freeman used to live for cons—before he was famous. Now they’re nothing but autographs and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Carmindor is all he’s ever wanted, but the Starfield fandom has written him off as just another dumb heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, Darien feels more and more like a fake—until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise.
