This book started out promising and then nothing happened. It just plateaued. I have no interest in continuing the story, unfortunately.
The writing is art

Slower morning at work today, so I‘m getting into this one! I‘ve heard VERY mixed reviews, so we shall see…
Fantastic! Exciting, beautiful world, f/f romance, light magic.
#TBRPile 📚 “There is a tradition in our kingdom, one all castes of demon and human follow. We call it the Birth-Blessing.”
I'm finally starting to catch up on posting book reviews on Insyagram, which means I'll be catching up here soon too! Here's a pic for a book I already reviewed on Litsy but didn't take a nice picture for originally.
?Carve the Mark
Fates are assigned at birth by an oracle.
?The House of Night
There are prophetesses here!
The epithet of "prophecy": "the nice and accurate prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch".
?Girls of Paper and Fire
Birth Pendants are forged during the Birth Blessing and at 18 they'll reveal a word that will determine the fate of the owner.
➡️Do you like prophecies? In which books did you find them?
Lei is taken from her village and made to serve as a concubine to the king as one of his Paper Girls. Her resolve to free herself of the situation solidifies when she falls in love. I enjoyed this book. The world is vivid and reminded me of Daughter of Smoke and Bone because of the human/demon denizins of the world. There were also aspects I didn't enjoy, and the climax didn't quite feel earned. #Fantasy
Clearly I‘m behind writing about what I‘ve read, my sister reminded me by asking if I‘d read this one as she picked it up yesterday and liked the cover...did I read it 😆 yes and I loved it!

New Post Today!
Ok, so this wasn‘t the best book in the world... some bits were kinda annoying, there were parts way underdeveloped (and vice versa), and a coupla scenes were pretty triggering for me. BUT the premise was fun, the narration was good, the story was easy, and ABOVE ALL, there were lgbtq themes! I‘m a sucker for a wlw novel, so I did enjoy this book!

The cover drew me in and it started out strong, but it definitely lost me probably around half way in. I was listening to it as an audiobook so I finished while working on home projects, cleaning, organizing...I was disappointed after it started off so strong, but it was just choppy and unbelievable. It gets ⭐️⭐️⭐️ anyway because I was totally drawn in to the start. I won‘t be reading book 2.
I cant seem to focus on anything these days - I'm sure I'm not the only one. I'm still reading about 25 pages of Pride and Prejudice a day with some friends, but haven't finished anything else. I'm hopi g an audiobook while I keep my hands busy will do the trick. #audiocrochet
Starting this fantasy in the hope of taking my mind off potentially having Coronavirus. #waitingfortestresults
Lei is a Paper Girl, which are teenage girls who are forced to join the Demon King's harem. She makes friends, falls in love, and joins a rebellion, but it doesn't stop the Demon King from raping her. The book shows the devastating affects of sexual assault and how it impacts a person's life. I love how Lei wasn't silenced by the Demon King and how she supported her fellow Paper Girls. I can't wait to read the rest of this trilogy.
This one has been on my TBR for a while- and marks the 102nd #MtTBRChallenge book of 2019 for me! Plus, this is my final book for #Booked2019 - #ParanormalMCPoC - and I am so glad to already have my hands on the sequel! I really enjoyed this engaging fantasy. The world-building fascinated me and I loved the characters, too! It might be my #FavoriteDecemberRead #HollyJollyReading #WinterGames #ReadNosedReindeer
I have been wanting to read this book for a while. With the sequel coming out Tuesday I thought it was time. Now all I want if for it to be Tuesday so I can find out what happens next to Lei and Wren! This book was action packed and kept me on the edge of my seat. Trigger warning for violence and sexual assault.
