“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”
― Jorge Luis Borges
A blog created by two best friends back in May 2015 that started from a simple text message, Book Allure is dedicated to reviewing books under the genres of YA.
Kyra and Nikki came to a decision to the blog name due to the interesting nature books provide once readers fully immerse themselves in it. Book Allure aims to show its readers that there can never be a dull day if you keep a good book in hand.
Posts are published every Monday and Thursday!
Books from authors, agents, and publishers may be reviewed upon request and posted on the blog.
Need a second opinion on your unpublished manuscript? Book Allure is currently offering beta reading services with many options to choose from.
We participate in ARC/blog tours around the Philippines.
Because You Love to Hate Me: 13 Tales of Villainy. Ameriie. Young adult/Short stories/Anthology. 2017. 368 pages. 4.5 stars. Villains, the deliciously wicked. We love to hate them and they hate to be loved, if only because being hated frees them from having to be good.
To Kill A Kingdom. Alexandra Christo. Young adult/Fantasy. 2018. 342 pages. 3 stars. That’s the thing about risks. It’s impossible to know which ones are worth it until it’s too late I received an Advanced Readers Copy in exchange for an honest review
Restore Me. Tahereh Mafi. Young adult/Dystopian. 2018. 448 pages. 5 stars. They’re coming to collect their pound of flesh, and I fear that this time–as I have every time–I will end up paying with my heart.
