Have you ever opened a piece of #bookmail and audibly gasp? That happened to me when I received this beauty for review. Only a few chapters in, and I can‘t wait to see if the story itself is as breathtaking as the cover. 🍂💜

We did it! #PotatoCat and I finished this awesome book, and it only took close to two months for me to actually do it. Don't let my slowness put you off. This book is SO good and I highly recommend it. Fantasy and political drama, a pickpocketing badass heroine, beautiful imagery. I am running out immediately to get the second book. WARNING: There is a slow patch in the middle, but if you power through the last 150 pages are 😱

I feel bad at how long it's taking me to get through this one. I genuinely love it, and I wish I was reading it faster. But between family emergencies, work piling up, AND moving across the city, my mental batteries are burnt out. Here's hoping I finish this one this week!

I really did try to stick it out, I wanted to love this book. But I'm so bored I can't finish it. The plot line is interesting, the non-binary main character learning to be an assassin is cool, but the writing is just so...so. Part of it is my preference for details, I like an abundance of details. Describe the shape of literally every floorboard for me. The first person narrative here leaves HUGE chunks up to the reader which I didn't like.

I couldn't get into this book, and a bulk of that is my own fault. I didn't realize it was middle grade versus YA. The story is good, and the writing is lovely, but overall I just never clicked with it. The main girl bounced around the place so much she bordered on a Mary Sue, and I felt like things were never fully explained. A pseudo almost ghost story with a touch of magic, it's a fast read with a gorgeous cover.

This book was an unexpected, eye opening, delight! There were plenty of moments that made me laugh, but more often I found myself feeling profoundly touched. Tyler bared a lot of truths, and was open about demons that most people shy away from (eating disorders, depression, abusive relationships). I definitely recommend this one. 5✨

My #BookCon haul is a baby one, but all the more special because almost all of these were picked up for me by friends who knew I'd love them. And they know me SO well. I was busy working and couldn't run around the conference until most of the drops were done, but my friends knew exactly what I'd want and every couple of hours I'd hear "Psst, look what I picked up". Which basically made me cry. Bookworms are the best ?

4/5 ✨ This is a classic Dessen book. It reminds me a lot of The Truth About Forever, which is one of my absolute favorite novels. It deals with a very heavy subject (overcoming the grief of a school shooting) and Dessen handles the subject matter with an inspiring hand. I loved Ambrose, but the final romantic push did feel a little flat/uneventful. With a dramatic few chapters that felt unneeded. Despite that I highly recommend this one. 💜

This one definitely made me think. I'm giving it a so-so only because it took me so long to get into the story, and by the end of it I couldn't really navigate how I felt. Although I assume that's why many enjoyed the book. It definitely presents a feeling of dread towards growing up, the fear of the unknown and the heartache that comes with leaving childhood behind. 3.5/5✨

This rating is not the book's fault. It's mine for not looking at what it was about before taking it from my friend. I fell victim to a gorgeous cover. But the relationship is a step-sibling turned guardian turned romance and that's a hard pass for me. Am I the only one that struggles with historical romances that use step-siblings/"cousins"/"uncle" figures as the love interest?

Just got some new #bookmail! This isn't my usual read so I'm a little nervous about this particular subject matter, but the cover is gorgeous and I'm excited to give it a shot. Although the idea of kids on an island that disappear once they're too old sounds a little more dystopian (and my tastes) than the cover suggests...
