My current obsession is most definitely still The Cruel Prince, there’s something infinitely fascinating about morally ambiguous characters that lures me in like nothing else. My favorite character is Cardan, no surprise to some of you lmao, but I’m so looking forward to the sequels the ending really devastated me in the best way.
I recently picked up A Crown of Wishes, which some dear friends have raved about forever. Roshani Chokshi has some gorgeous stunning prose and it was such a decadent fantasy with a beautiful romance that I’m more excited than ever for her future novels I’ve had on my tbr for a while now.
I have run out of photos to post so thought I might post a few outtakes of my trip to the amazing Mysterious Galaxy bookstore with Alexis, who I just started co-blogging with. She’s one of my favorite people ever and we click so well so I’m excited. My intro post on her blog is linked in the bio ♥️
Throwback to visiting the Hello Kitty cafe a few weeks ago. It was the cutest place and I can’t wait to go back when I’m back in LA for the summer hopefully. I haven’t read Meet Cute yet but it does seem like something I’d like so I’m excited. Here’s to a few more days of denial before school starts up sigh.
I adore Holly Black’s writing, I truly do. So when I picked up The Cruel Prince I was delighted and ecstatic, since she gave me her usual gorgeous writing and an ending that left me wanting. I’m counting down the days until the sequel will be out and I have to say the title of this trilogy have me so excited.
It’s the last day of 2017 and it feels quite surreal. This is an old photo I never posted but it’s really interesting how even with someone as inconsistent as myself, I can see the phases my photos go through. Hopefully 2018 will give me the motivation to post more and I won’t be so sporadic haha.
black friday bookoutlet hauls are always extra special and i finally acquired copies of some of my favorite 2017 reads + books I’ve been eyeing for a while now. i can’t wait to indulge in some reading now that the holidays are almost here~
I recently devoured Shadowsong by S. Jae-Jones and I’m truly in love with the haunting story. It’s a sequel to the enchanting Wintersong and I highly recommend it to those who like their fantasy a little dark and heartbreaking. Der Erlkönig is by far one of my favorite fictional villains and I was sobbing at the finale of this book. I’m excited for everyone to read this and I’m off to read some of the deleted scenes from Wintersong I’ve had saved up for this occasion.
I finally have had the time to take and post something because yet again i went and took an unplanned hiatus. I actually acquired this School for Good and Evil book when I went to target for Black Friday shopping. I may have also made some bookoutlet purchases, so stay tuned for a haul coming up.
I just have to say that this book is a stunner (like look at that map whoa) and comes with deckled pages, on top of it being a signed first edition!
School stress is starting to get to me and I wish I could go back to reading books carefree. Genie Lo is one of the most relatable heroine, I loved this book and I’m so excited for the sequel whenever it releases.
I recently finished Rosemarked by Livia Blackburne and I adored it, it’s probably my favorite fantasy read of this year. If you’re a fan of the Lumatere Chronicles, Queen’s Thief series or Poison Study, I think you’d enjoy this one.
One of the books I’m currently reading, Ink and Ashes is a book I’ve heard a few people rave about and since it feat. a Japanese-American heroine, I’m quite excited to immerse myself in this book! The author actually has another book out next year that I’m dying to get my hands on, fingers crossed this will heighten my expectations.
I was processing new books at our library this week and it was so exciting and heartwarming to see this book among the new initiates, especially bc of how much I adore this book. Working at an academic library can be dull sometimes but this made my week.
My copy of La Belle Sauvage arrived recently. It’s such a stunning book visually and I just found out my edition was autographed under the dust jacket and I’m very emotional. HDM was such a huge part of my childhood and I’m so excited to delve back into this gorgeous world
The first volume of Super Sons came out yesterday and it is just as delightful as you would expect it to be. Jon and Damien are a true treat to read as Superboy and Robin and the art is the cutest. You can read my review on the blog link in profile 💕
