I kept coming across this book on tiktok and finally caved in and read it. Holy cow I am glad I did. It wasn't exactly what I expected but the fantasy world grabbed me in quickly and Poppy is such a great heroine. I was happy that the whole book remained in her perspective as I feel like it helps the reader connect more with the character. The only downside to this book is I would say that it was predictable. The “twist“ was quite obvious.

I've seen mixed reviews for this series, lots of people hate it, lots of people love it & lots of people compare it to ACOTAR, which makes *zero* sense.The only comparison that I'll make is this: for me From Blood and Ash is the superior read.

Controversial, I know.
But I said what I said.

Poppy is a firecracker. Hawke is the golden "bad boy" we all hate to love. Their chemistry and friendship is *chef's kiss*.

Also Vampires and Werewolves.

So I realize we're supposed to stay positive, etc. but I also feel like there is no sense in beating around the bush: I totally failed #BFC2021 😂 Mainly because I was really bad at actually setting goals... so maybe I was actually awesome at it, since I accomplished the goals I set?! LOL Anyway, as @wanderinglynn says, it's a new year and new challenge, and I am going to try to be a little more focused this time around!! I've already ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) decided that I am going to focus on getting some chunksters off my TBR/shelves this year, which for me is any book over 500 pages. I'm starting with the tagged book. I don't necessarily have to finish it in January, but I want to make actual progress on it!! For the fitness aspect, my husband & I have really been working on making sure we take the dogs around the block every evening - so easy to skip this time of year - so I am going ⬇ 8mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) to keep that as a top priority!!

Thanks as always for hosting, Lynn - your encouragement means a lot!!!

Just finished chapter one— I definitely feel like the struggles and discoveries of ones sexuality is going to be a main focus here. I am expecting steamy moments aplenty with a lot of self reflection. It seems like a sex positive book with an adventurous fantasy setting that is encapsulating the smaller, more personal setting of within our heroine as she goes on the adventures from her mind, to her heart, to her libido, and back again.

1. Yes, especially for fantasy books with unique worlds.
2. Nope, though I have some real maps, from places I‘ve visited.
3. I wish tagged series had a map! At least the edition I have does not.

I‘m not super big on fantasy, but it‘s no surprise Armentrout could win me over. I quite enjoyed this. Glad I got the audio though because it‘s looooong.

Eggbeater Do you think I would like this one? 12mo
kimmypete1 Yes!! 12mo
kimmypete1 @Eggbeater yes!! It‘s romancey, but like there‘s other stuff going on. I had a hard time trying to genre it (between fantasy or paranormal romance). (edited) 12mo

3.5 STARS - Good premise and main character but too much overshadowing and a lot of popular tropes make the plot too obvious. Great action scenes and a kick butt heroine.

Not sure I'll read the next book in this popular teen series or not. This one was a bit overhyped for me.

I started this late March but it‘s done for #bookspinbingo
Truly enjoyed this. I liked the world and characters. There‘s fantasy, monsters, magic, royals, and steam 🔥 Poppy is a fun main character. She‘s stabby and I love it! New adult fantasy and Armentrout is planning 6 books she says, so I‘m excited to see where it goes. Book 3 is out soon I believe.

I‘ve been shit at posting lately, but I got my books all lined up for #bookspin in March! I chose some deep picks off my TBR for this month, so I‘m looking forward to finally getting to them. Currently reading the tagged book and thought I‘d maybe need to substitute another book, but I‘ve been a bit busy so this book will take me into March now.

Oh my god this book!!! And that ending!! I have to give this book 4 and a 1/2 stars, not 5 stars because it started out pretty slow and didn‘t pick up for me a lot until about half way through. But those last 100+ pages were wow!! I am so glad I gave the second book already. Anyway if you haven‘t read this book yet, go do it!! Lol. #bookrecommandations

From Blood and Ash is the first book in the ongoing series. It begins with an 18 year old girl who has been chosen by the gods to become the Maiden. Poppy was chosen because of her power which allows her to sense emotions, however very few characters know this. Being the maiden is a great honour to everyone but Poppy. She is forced to endure the solitude of her life and the torture behind closed doors. One night as Poppy and her guard go for a--

Gabrielle.Friesen stroll through her favourite garden she is almost abducted and results in the death of the guard. Later Poppy discovers this was the work of a rival kingdom. The prince from this kingdom is coming for her and no one knows what he looks like. Poppy continues to live her life in fear of being abducted and being the Maiden. Throughout the story she begins to connect to her new guard who swore to protect her with his life.-- 2y
Gabrielle.Friesen As the threat of the evil kingdom grows larger, Poppy is forced to flee accompanied by her guards. If you like books that focus on wars between kingdoms and high fantasy I would recommend this book to you. The author Jennifer L. Armentrout wrote From Blood and Ash in first person point of view. She is a very talented writer and made Poppy a very understandable character. Using first person allowed me as a reader to feel like I was experiencing-- 2y
Gabrielle.Friesen the story with the character Poppy. The author uses pathos to her advantage when writing in first person about Poppy.

1. Current reads: 📚 From Blood and Ash 📚 Bud, Not Buddy 📚 Eldest Curses #2 (started a while ago and need to finish!)

2. Last read of 2020 was How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories by Holly Black.

3. Reading goal is 75 books! 2020 was the first time I got past 55 and got to 75, so I‘m going to try again! I‘d love to hit 100, but don‘t want to stress over it 🤪

Oh my gawwwd. Where in the world did this book come from?! It was everything I could ever possibly want a book to be. The world-building was detailed and well-paced, the characters were vivid, the romance was sizzling, the adventure was gripping, the violence was gruesome, the twists and turns toward the end were wild. 600+ absolutely pages flew by. I‘m immediately getting into the next book in the series. 🤓😱😍

Finished this last night. I enjoy this author and heard amazing things so I went in blind. I was so disappointed for the first half of this book. I almost DNF'd. The last 1/4 or so? So good! This brought me back to the fantasy stories from forever ago. I can't wait to get to the next one! Yes it's predictable but so fun

A friend and I are playing Bookopoly and I landed on Romance. So I decided to go with the GR Choice Award Winner in this category - I want to read those books anyway.

BUT this one just wasn't for me. And I didn't even get to the Romance part. There was just so much information stuffed into the first few pages, that I was totally confused about this world. And when the Romance part started it was such a boring scene, I just went NOPE.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Is it part of a series, often their picks are book # whatever in a long running series, so the info dump could have been a recap... maybe? 2y
Jari-chan @Riveted_Reader_Melissa There are many series books on the list, indeed. But this one is a volume 1... 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Jari-chan Then yep, totally makes sense for a bail. 2y

Jari-chan @Buechersuechtling It's a lot of fun! There are many different versions out there, we play one I've found randomly. And now we're making our own rules as well 😁 Maybe you'll find a version that suits you as well? ☺️ And yes - on to the next one! 2y

3.5⭐️ Vamprys and Wolven! Despite these familiar monsters and magic system, the story was nice. Although it dragged a bit in the middle, the last few chapters were engrossing and somewhat predictable. Poppy was a fantastic female character. I loved the way she fought and defended herself. I so wish she could hit Hawke once. I found him abusive 😖. The romance was so-so. A female centric story all in all.

I am at a loss as to why everyone is raving about this one. Maybe I wasn't in the right headspace. Maybe I wasn't in the demographic... or maybe we read different books entirely. Whatever the case may be, I could not finish this one. This was such a disappointment I might be off of vampire reads for a long while and I am most definitely off of Mrs. Armentrout.

Overall:
DNF 52%... Nuff said

Ohhhh, that was fun. I stayed up late last night to finish this book. Great world building and characters. Maybe my one complaint was the dialogue could be cheesy at times. But mostly I really liked this book and am very glad I already ordered the next book in the series that should be delivered today for me to start immediately.

I absolutely loved that book.
It's dark and steamy. Unique in it's own way and an interesting world to get lost in. It's an addicting story. You either can't wait to read more about Hawk ❤ or your intrigue about the dark secrets within the castle.
If you liked reading A Court of Thorns and Rose by Sarah J Maas, than this is for you.

This book couldn‘t decide if it wanted to be a romance novel or a fantasy, & ended up being a meandering, derivative attempt at both. I mean, vampires & star-crossed lovers? Really? Look, I ADORE a good, steamy star-crossed-lover romance & I like good vampire stories, but there‘re books that‘ve done this more creatively. Also, the story didn‘t actually start until 80%. For a book that got 1000+ reviews I expect mind-blowing, & this was fine. ★★★☆☆
