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: 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.

Review: A Jewel Bright Sea (Mage and Empire #1) by Claire O’Dell

This book had a lot to recommend itself….pirates, adventure, magic, romance, fantasy. So many things that made it sound like a fun book to escape into.

I also thought the cover was pretty, though a little on the busy side. But ultimately I thought the promise of adventure and pirates sounded like a winning combo so picking up this one up when the time came, was full of promise for me.

I haven’t read anything by O’dell before but I know she has written a couple of other books that are part of a series, so I was curious to see what her writing style was and how the magic and pirates situation came together in this one!

Except: BURSTS OF FIRE (Addicted to Heaven #1) by Susan Forest

I am thrilled to be able to give you guys a sneak peak of this book today! It’s been out since early August and has been receiving lots of great reviews.

I haven’t had the pleasure of reading it yet, but this little snippet sounds wonderful! If you like  epic fantasy then you will defiantly want to check this one out.

While this is more in the YA genre, I think it would be a book that adults would love as well! Not only does it have magic and other fantasy elements, but it sounds like it’s going to tackle some big issues too much as addiction and mental illness so I think that it’s content will appeal to a wide audience.
