Review: The Queen of Nothing (The Folk of the Air #3) by Holly Black

Here we are, the last review for the last book in this horribly addicting series. As I mentioned in my review of The Cruel Prince, this was a series that I was sure that I wouldn’t like so thus I avoided it like the plague.

But I couldn’t deny the hype for the final installment of the series, The Queen of Nothing. My IG feed was saturated with pics of this book and people re-reading the series again in preparation so I found it extra hard to resist reading the first book.

After a couple of chapters of book one, I knew I was a hooked and ordered the remaining books immediately and read the entire series in like 4 days and then suffered a horrible book hangover where I feared I would never find anything as exciting as this series in the future. It was just that good! Continue reading “Review: The Queen of Nothing (The Folk of the Air #3) by Holly Black”

Review: The Wicked King (The Folk of the Air #2) by Holly Black

So as soon as I finished the first book in this series, The Cruel Prince, I knew I immediately needed the next two books so I ordered them before I was done with the first book.

I will say this, it’s been a long time since I have woken up early to read a book, let alone finishing a series of three books  in four days. But this series made me fall back in love with YA fantasy and made me love early morning reading sessions again!

I’ll be honest, it’s hard for me to write this review because the three books all blurred together because I read them so quickly but I will try my best to focus on this book specifically. Continue reading “Review: The Wicked King (The Folk of the Air #2) by Holly Black”

Review: Christmas from the Heart by Sheila Roberts

Sheila Roberts is another prolific writer with a huge fan base and a number of titles to her name. I have only read a couple of her books but found them to be enjoyable and light.

I wanted something relaxing after coming off of a few fast pace reads as well as something to get me into the holiday spirit….this book totally fit the bill.

I originally only did a special feature for this one as I wasn’t sure that I could fit it in to my review schedule, but I thought it sounded so fun that I decided to make some room and squeeze it in for the holidays. Continue reading “Review: Christmas from the Heart by Sheila Roberts”

REVIEW: The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell

Lisa Jewell is a wonderful writer and when I saw this book come up for review, I needed little convincing.

The cover is beautiful and the premise for the story sounds great as well. This is my first read by her but I am not a stranger to her books. I have a couple of friends who have read them all and are constantly thrusting the latest Jewell release into my hands.

I decided that this was going to be my first read by her and I couldn’t be more excited. Plus it was all over IG and it was also the Book of the Month pick so I knew this one was going to be a big read going into the holiday season. Continue reading “REVIEW: The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell”

Review: The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air #1) by Holly Black

I saw The Cruel Prince all over my IG feed for months. I see it on all the recommended reading lists and people are raving about it. But I was determined to not like this one.

I love YA fantasy just as much as the next person, but I went through a long period where that was all I read and I frankly got burnt out on it so I took a lengthy break.

Then this one started popping up all over and I was convinced that it was overrated and sure to disappoint….also I am not into fairies like not even at all so I was sure this on would suck. But still people loved it and clearly there must be something about it right? Well the last book, Queen of Nothing, came out and it was once again everywhere I turned and I caved and bought the first book.
