This last novel in the trilogy took me a little longer to get into than the first two, but once I was in, I was hooked. I could not put these books down. They are incredible!

It's been a minute, or possibly ever since I only read one book at a time.This year I'm trying something different and I have been loving being fully immersed only in this world.
Laini Taylor has been drawing me in so completely. Karou is badass, and honestly so is Zuz. I love her characters, I love these books and 2 days after finishing the second I'm already halfway through the third.

Finally catching up on some book reviews...these are completely out of order as I go through the growing pile of finished books on my desk.

I absolutely love @booksbyemgarner writing. She writes life. You connect with her characters and feel like you are one of them. Not a specific character but another one in the room with them. I loved this book, I can't wait to keep reading her series.

Happy Spooky Season...even though it's almost over...what can I say, I'm behind. Though I would read this book any season of the year, it was lighthearted yet suspenseful and so much fun.

The Heart Principle | Helen Hoang

I loved this novel, to me it was more self-love than romcom. While there is a romance aspect to it, there is also family drama. But, the most important part to me is the main character learning to love herself and prioritize herself.

This one officially comes out on August 31st and I highly recommend.

Do you have that one person who recommends a book and you instantly know it‘ll be good? I have 3 such people. One of whom texted me today while I was at the park with my nose buried in another book, telling me I should read this one. Ironically when I checked my library app moments later the audiobook was available, soooo I while I set up some tlc I dived into tara‘s story.

We should all strive to be more unapologetically ourselves. I loved the underlying theme in this book that reminded me constantly to ignore people's underestimation of me, be myself, not apologize and most of all, be happy.

I love, love, loved this book. I could not put it down. I was fortunate to receive an ARC of it, it's coming out on July 1st. Mark your calendars because you NEED to read it!

This novel is fun, it's sweet, it's full of adventure and villains that are perfect to hate.

This novel was such a fun quick read. Perfect for a reading slump. I Jenny is going through a crushing break up with her long time boyfriend. Charles is her boss and she hates him. Through a funny turn of events the two end up together and it is beyond adorable and more than a little bit steamy.

This book made me ugly cry. I was sobbing for like the last hour of reading it. It was beautiful and heartbreaking, I‘m literally broken after reading it.

I do need to put a kinda strong TW on it, if you have depression or have ever had any thoughts about wanting to unalive yourself it might be triggering just FYI

I really enjoyed this novel. It was a beautiful story of love and loss and the lengths we‘ll go to for our family, whether that is by blood or found family. I loved the found family that Camilla and Tuor built themselves. I loved the loyalty and love that Camilla had in spite of everything. This book was a fast paced and gripping adventure and it had me on the edge of my seat the whole time.

Another catch up review from last month. This novel is incredible. It‘s prequel “Girls of Paper and Fire” by Natasha Ngan was sooo good but this one exceeded. I cannot wait for the third book to come out later this year.

If you like fantasy you need to read this series!

This book broke my heart, it pulled me in, made me fall in love with the characters and shattered me. I learned a lot reading this book a lot of facts that had been glossed over and need to be known, perspectives that need to be read. Another one I think every high school should have as required reading.

This novel was good though I didn't find it incredible. I found Libertie's character very frustrating as she was constantly letting everyone push her around...maybe that's because I feel her on that level and I hate that fact about myself. But I looooved the ending.
