I haven't been active but I have been reading like mad!

I've been meaning to get to this one for a long time. I love Kagawa's writing and this was quite well done. A little different than I thought and Megan is not my favourite type of heroine but a solid series start and enough to make me excited about getting to the rest

Reread! The last time I read was 2011 so it almost felt like reading a new book again, revisiting all of the little details that make this world fun. Meghan travels to the Nevernever to rescue her brother who has been kidnapped, finding out along the way she isn‘t who she thinks she is. Lots of fun nods to Shakespeare‘s Midsummer Night‘s Dream. Great characters, especially Meghan‘s best friend Puck. Great audiobook too, narrated by Khristine Hvam.

I read a later book in this series years ago, and I've been meaning to read the first book since then. I quite liked it and look forward to reading the rest of the series. It has an interesting blend of old faery tales with new elements. The “Iron Fey“ are a new type of faery, immune to iron, that are taking on the Seelie and Unseelie kingdoms.

This book is a tad too fairy-ish fantasy for me, but still a cute read that had some cool aspects to it. I liked the literal use of the modern world being an enemy within the fantasy/dream world, it created a bit more depth which is always a plus.
Overall, not a bad read, I just wish I had read it when I was a little younger.

Slajaunie This is part of a series. It was okay but not great. 3y

Lovely cover. The book? Meh. One-dimensional protagonist, who also happens to be the narrator, which makes for fairly frustrating reading. World building takes a bit to develop, but after that not bad. Loved the fairy prince... but not the love triangle.
I‘m a sucker for stories involving Faerie lands and fae characters, but I wouldn‘t particularly recommend this one. Also, it‘s one of those YA books that read on the younger side.

This was good book but the story was familiar at times. I read a lot of fantasy books so I wasn't surprise.
It still was a unique, fun, interesting and funny adventure.
The story also made me think of Alice In Wonderland.

Been meaning to get into this series for a while. It made me very nostalgic of all the YA fantasy I read in high school, and I love that. The fairy mythology was great and I definitely want more exploration of it all in future books. The concept of technology meeting mythology in terms of fairies was awesome and very well done. Overall, a fun read!

I'm about 100 pages into this book and I'm seeing a TON of similarities between TIK and ACOTAR. I'm not a huge fan of the writing style but it's also from the same era of YA as TVD and Shiver so I can't judge it too harshly. Overall a decent read and great for fans of Alice in Wonderland!

While I usually don't like to tell someone what they should and shouldn't read, if you are looking for a fun YA series with some supernatural elements to it, I would definitely recommend the Iron Fae series or the Tiger's Curse series over Twilight. They are both unique, well-written series with characters you want to root for. Several in both series end on #cliffhangers too. #readthisnotthat #maybookflowers

for #bestcharactername for #booktober #day19 I'm choosing Grimalkin AKA Cait Sith. I like this one because it reminds me of Holly Golightly's aptly named "Cat". As grimalkin means grey cat and Cait Sith means faery cat. In the Iron Fey series, Grimalkin is both a grey cat and faery cat.

Seekingtardis This is also a character in The Dresden Files series. He's a bad ass cat too! 😍 6y
