Review: The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak by Brian Katcher

Title: The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak
Author: Brian Katcher
Publication: May 19th 2015, Katherine Tegen Books
Format: e-ARC, 336 pages 
Source: From the publisher (Thanks HarperCollins!)


The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak is Stonewall Book Award-winning author Brian Katcher’s hilarious he said/she said romance about two teens recovering from heartbreak and discovering themselves on an out-of-this-world acciantal first date.

It all begins when Ana Watson's little brother, Clayton, secretly ditches the quiz bowl semifinals to go to the Washingcon sci-fi convention on what should have been a normal, résumé-building school trip.

If slacker Zak Duquette hadn't talked up the geek fan fest so much, maybe Clayton wouldn't have broken nearly every school rule or jeopardized Ana’s last shot at freedom from her uptight parents.

Now, teaming up with Duquette is the only way for Ana to chase down Clayton in the sea of orcs, zombies, bikini-clad princesses, Trekkies, and Smurfs. After all, one does not simply walk into Washingcon.

But in spite of Zak's devil-may-care attitude, he has his own reasons for being as lost as Ana-and Ana may have more in common with him than she thinks. Ana and Zak certainly don’t expect the long crazy night, which begins as a nerdfighter manhunt, to transform into so much more…

Misfit Review:

Refreshing and a little maze of new knowledge on geekdom, The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak is something that you should read. Here are more reasons why you should dive into it.

Stacking The Shelves #10: Spring And Summer Haul

Stacking The Shelves is a feature hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where bloggers share what books (both physical and digital) they received, won, bought, and borrowed.

Hi there Misfit Booknerds! For those who are wondering if there's Spring in the Philippines, I just dream we do. HAHAHA! *cries* I am, however, referring to the titles I received during the seasons ARCs or finished books were released. Other than that, I'm just trying to be somewhere I'm not... OH SPRING!

You can also take note that I have not made an STS for months and months (since January), due to the lack of book hauls. (blame my thesis expenses LOL). You may now mock me.

During April till July however, I have received a number of books, both physical and electronic. Some of them are advance and backlisted titles, while others are borrowed or part of blog tours. So yeah. Here we go!

What It's Like To Have A Bookish Best Friend

Hi there Misfit Booknerds! How have you been??? Are you busy with school or are you reading? Please be reading. HA! Wouldn't you be so glad if you can talk to your best friend about that book you're reading but alas, your best friend isn't exactly the type who reads books! You're life is a lie. LOLJK! Cherish those best friends of yours.

Anyway, I've been known to not label friendships. One time, one of my friends told me that she doesn't know what our relationship really is, even though we're practically on the best friend standpoint, if you know what I mean. The truth is, I just assume that if I have a friend whom I'm very close with, they are already my best friend. And I don't care if I end up having a ton of best friends coz of it. Everyone matters to me. *tackle hugs you all*

Writers Central: With Our Words (Part 1)

One thing I remember my sister said to me about love was, "Love is unfair. It doesn't give you the chance to breathe or think straight, yet it lures you in so fast in the beginning and flops you down like a rotten sack of potatoes after it's sick of you. Yeah. Unfair."

Misfit Talks: When I Was A Kid...

Hello hello, Misfit booknerds! Thank you by the way for reading my short features! It means a lot! It's fun to hear your thoughts about my life as it is but what if I tell you some stories about myself as a kid? Yeah, let's wallow about that for a moment and prepare your mind for extreme awkwardness and weird photos... LOL!

So, yeah, let me share with you the fact that I was born in a small town in Batangas, in the Philippines and I am the first girl from the side of my Dad, so they kinda celebrated and thought I was the most adorable thing in the planet. Of course, that all changed when I turned to be this piece of work. LOL

Review: Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway

Title: Emmy & Oliver                               
Author: Robin Benway
Publication: June 23rd 2015, HarperTeen
Format: e-ARC, 352 pages
Source: From the publisher (Thanks HarperTeen!)

Emmy’s best friend, Oliver, reappears after being kidnapped by his father ten years ago. Emmy hopes to pick up their relationship right where it left off. Are they destined to be together? Or has fate irreparably driven them apart?

Emmy just wants to be in charge of her own life.

She wants to stay out late, surf her favorite beach—go anywhere without her parents’ relentless worrying. But Emmy’s parents can’t seem to let her grow up—not since the day Oliver disappeared.

Oliver needs a moment to figure out his heart.

He’d thought, all these years, that his dad was the good guy. He never knew that it was his father who kidnapped him and kept him on the run. Discovering it, and finding himself returned to his old hometown, all at once, has his heart racing and his thoughts swirling.

Emmy and Oliver were going to be best friends forever, or maybe even more, before their futures were ripped apart. In Emmy’s soul, despite the space and time between them, their connection has never been severed. But is their story still written in the stars? Or are their hearts like the pieces of two different puzzles—impossible to fit together?

Readers who love Sarah Dessen will tear through these pages with hearts in throats as Emmy and Oliver struggle to face the messy, confusing consequences of Oliver’s father’s crime. Full of romance, coming-of-age emotion, and heartache, these two equally compelling characters create an unforgettable story.

Misfit Review:

When someone important in your life comes back after many years, knowing that them disappearing has caused great trauma to a lot of people, is it alright to just go back to the way it was or will the change be too much to handle?

Emmy & Oliver is a rollercoaster of feelings, brought about the traumatic experience of Oliver being kidnapped by his Dad one day, at age 7. After 10 years, Oliver comes back home and Emmy, his best friend, is both happy and worried. Things have changed. Oliver's mom won't rest till his Dad is arrested, Emmy's parents are way too overprotective of her and Caro and Drew, Emmy's best friends (Oliver's friends once), are gonna have to learn to adapt to everything again. It's a mixture of happiness and uncertainty for everyone and on whether everything should be done-over or should it be a start over.
