After having to take a break from all things social media and reading due to university I am finally returning and starting off with this gem!
Came from a fairyloot box. Very excited to begin reading.
Have any of you read this?

rjsthumbelina Yep! I enjoyed it. I wouldn't call it a favorite, but it was fun. Hope you like a hate to love! 2mo

The Falconer | Elizabeth May

I'm 50 pages from being done. This book is SO good. Also anyone else think that Kiaran reminds them a little bit of Rhys from ACOTAR? I'm so behind on updating my reviews on here. (Thanks to working 60 hours and being moved to 3rd shift recently) Also shockingly found out it was the debut novel of the author. Excellent writing, world building & character development. #thefalconer #acotar #rhys #kiaranmckay #fae #scaryfaeries #yabooks #moreplease

InsomniacGhuleh @allthingskayla It's seriously so good. You should bump it up you TBR pile. I'm always hesitant with dragon fantasy because so often it's really lazy. But the mythos and world building of this story is absolutely stellar. I can't recommend it enough. 2y

Rereading this beaut. I convinced a coworker of mine to read it. She's never read any of Sarah J. Maas's works. 😈😈😈 She doesn't even know what she's in for. 😁 I had almost forgotten how off-putting I found Tamlin to be right from the get-go. Despite the reasons. I just wanna get to the parts with Rhys again. #Rhysismyforeverbookboyfriend #ACOTAR #Rhys #Feyre #Tamlin #Rereading #Yabook #Yesplease #rereadingforupcomingrelease #bookboyfriend

This book was FANTASTIC. Asha is a fierce, protagonist we can all identify with. A dragon hunter who is wielded by the realm her king and father to hunt dragons who are deemed wicked, and the "old stories" that breed wickedness. Asha revels in her "wickedness" and eternal love of the old stories. But soon a twist of fate leads her on an unexpected path and she finds herself questioning everything she once believed. #yabooks #readthisnow #amazingya

The follow up to And I Darken does not disappoint! Lada remains fierce and unapologetically her while trying to reclaim the throne of Wallachia. Her travels send her to unexpected places, and ultimately befriends characters that are quite the surprise. Radu and Mehemed remain also in the forefront with the fight for Constantinople, and their sly plan has unexpected consequences. It's a thrill from start to finish. #listyreview #yabook #nowirise

The Glittering Court | Richelle Mead
post image
Panpan

Alright, so I didn't love this book. I didn't hate it either. The premise of a countess turned commoner to escape her fate was a fun idea. Especially since she gets whisked away to a developing nation/colony on a new continent. Amidst extravagant balls and finery that the Glittering Court can afford. But characterization and pacing are big problems. I read the whole book and yet I still can't give solid differences or likes between characters.

Good lord has this last bit been sort of a slog. I've only got about 40-ish pages until I'm done. Honestly if something miraculous happens it'll be the only thing to get me to read book 2. Also I've never read Richelle Mead's other works. . . Should I just try a different series? #theglitteringcourt #richellemead #almostfinished #ya #yabooks #soonontosethingnew #reading #weekendreading

Man oh man, does anyone else think this book had pacing issues? I'm interested enough to keep reading. But there's not kind of build up happening. I honestly don't know if I'll finish this series once I'm done with this book. #ya #yabooks #theglitteringcourt #richellemead #bookswithpacingissues #butiminvestedinthecharacters #maybednfseries

GondorGirl I ended up bailing on this one. It's an interesting idea, but the pacing was of and the characters lacked any sort of depth. 2y
InsomniacGhuleh @GondorGirl That's definitely what I'm struggling with now. Everything is very on the surface. Which can be fine to a point. But this, just I don't know. It certainly makes for slow reading. P.s. I love your handle name. :) 2y

This book was a rollercoaster of pure fun and excitement. Holly Black has such a knack for blending real and surreal elements. If you enjoy fantasy, faerie lore, strong female leads, and just general badassery this is for you. Seriously everyone should be reading this STAT. This books left me breathless and sorry that I have to wait at least another year for book 2. #youngadult #ya #readthisnow #bookboyfriend #faerie #yafantasy #fantasy #sosogood

Caraval is one of those books that unexpectedly swept me off my feet. It's whimsical, mysterious, magical, and just the right amount of romance. The story is like a breath of fresh air after having been in one of the worst #bookslumps of my life. A magical tale of a sisterly bond, the undercurrent of a dangerous adventure, and the once in a lifetime chance to experience #Caraval will leave readers begging for more.
