The hopeless romantic in me fell for this love story but the politica in me has doubts. Still, it got me out of a book hangover, from another YA read that really blew me away (more about which later, I‘m gathering my thoughts and my feelings).

What did you think of this one?

I loved this book. It was a fun read set in an awesome world. The ending felt a little rushed but also awesomely earned, which was a weird mix of impressions to have. #lgbt #lgbtliterature #lgbtfantasy #magic #music #elemental

I've gone overboard with book buying in 2019, and I promise these two are the last ones (for this year). These are my early Christmas presents from myself to myself. 😅😄🙈📚📚🎄🎄#bookhaul #loveyourself

I should probably invest money in expanding my shelf space because the stack on my desk is slowly starting to get out of control. 😅🙈🙈

The story is fascinating, but Orth‘s writing is a mess. Her reporting is fragmented—I was never sure where I was in the timeline. Her racism and homophobia are on FULL display, even for the time, I feel like. I was expecting a much higher quality work to do the victim‘s justice. #tbrread #wintergames #teamfozziwig
