Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Maas | A Fitting Finale

I admit I slept on Kingdom of Ash. I pre-ordered the special B&N edition and everything but I hadn’t yet read Tower of Dawn and I didn’t want to skip a whole book before heading into the finale of perhaps one of the most well-known YA fantasy series of the decade. So I placed it on my bookshelf and admiringly stared at it until I finally talked myself into Tower of Dawn (mainly because I had spent the past year rereading the previous 5 books and the novella collection and didn’t want the start forgetting details since I so rarely […]

Things I Enjoyed: […]

A Court of Frost and Starlight | Review

Everyone who knows me knows I am complete and utter trash for this series, so I was beyond thrilled to receive my beautiful hardcover copy of this, dutifully waiting for me when I arrived home from YALLWEST this year. I devoured it in just a few hours (a luxury I often don’t have, to read a book in one sitting) and I was delighted and content to return to Velaris and read about domestic life with my all my fae baes. We had: Lots of eating, shopping and celebrating which LORD KNOWS they all deserve after the war in ACOWAR. […]
