It's a scary and exciting feeling when you dive into the finale of a much loved series. I had so many wants and needs to be fulfilled after three books worth of world building and character development. Does it accomplish what I hoped it would? Am I satisfied? Overall, yes. Is it flawless? No, not… Continue reading Here Comes The Raven King
I just finished reading Blue Lily, Lily Blue last night and I'm so pumped (You can check out The Raven Boys re-read and The Dream Thieves re-read here).

It's good but not the type of good where you'd have fun reading it but don't plan on ever doing it again. I'm talking about the kind of blah that makes you feel impatient to get to the end… Continue reading When A Book Is Just…Blah
