I enjoyed it more than I thought I would, really loved Wren and her story, can‘t wait to see more of her especially now that she has so much power.
I wonder why Jude and the other sisters were so against her and Oak being promised to each other years ago, I guess because of her family, hopefully, they‘ll see how worthy she is now, although I don‘t want her to go too easy on Oak that would be too boring.
There‘s barely any JudeCardan content tho

Excellent fairytale 🍁dangerous fae, clever storytelling, beautiful descriptions, & not a single use of the word “mate” (for all my fellow SJM fans) whimsical but sharp & atmospheric— also, can I request an eternal autumn?

I loved being back in this Folk of Air realm that Holly Black created. It picks up about 8 years later and is the story of a former heir who was “made” to be Queen and a Prince trying to save his father. The two are from opposite Kingdoms but have a history from when they were children so there‘s lots of trust issues, secrets and betrayals. Combined with magical creatures and cursed settings it was a fun read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 stars! #serieslove2023

Andrew65 I really need to get to some of her books. Well done 👏👏👏 2d

Here's the start to my #2023ReadingBracket. Thanks @chasjjlee for putting the bracket together. My January pick for favorite read is Emily Wilde's Encyclopedia of Faeries. It was a delight start to end.

Introverted & socially inept Emily Wilde is an expert on all things Fae & in the pursuit of finishing her encyclopedia on the topic, journeys to the far north to study their little-known Fae.
Unfortunately, her beguiling colleague, Wendell Bambley follows her, demanding to assist.
When they discover a changling in the village and some local youths go missing, the pair set out to help. If they learn about the Fae while they‘re at it, so be it.

Yeah, I‘m dropping it. 45% in and I just can‘t make myself care. The story seems to move slowly too. Shame, I loved all three Cruel Prince books and will reread them again gladly. Maybe I‘ll give this one another try someday but not now.

Anyone else noticed the influx of faerie releases so far this year? Looks like the 2000s really are back 😂. I‘m not complaining. https://youtu.be/GXzZYcR1BuI

I was a bit annoyed how this started: new main characters without telling who they were. It took me some time to remember who Ani was.

The world and atmosphere were again well created & amazing.

This felt a bit too detailed, hard to follow and slow. It took too long before things started to happen - I had already almost lost my interest at that point. There were good twists and I love stories that are unpredictable.

This has fairy folk, but no real monster. Also not #GasLampFantasy, because it's set in 1919. @Cinfhen

The book reminded me of 'A Natural History of Dragons' and 'A Curious Beginning'. Emily Wilde is on a research trip to the Arctic regions of Norway. She's trying to find out about the endemic fairy folk. When her colleague shows up, girls go missing, and a changeling terrorises his 'parents' research has to come second.

julesG Ran out of characters. Sorry. @alisiakae @BarbaraTheBibliophage 1w

I enjoyed the other books of hers. This one took me a bit to get through. But I did enjoy it. Glad to read more about oak.
