Nope, this wasn‘t for me
Missed out on so much detail, I found myself bored up until the end where the plot started moving, and I found myself rolling my eyes a lot 🙄

So this isn‘t gripping me as much as I had hoped. It all feels very rushed ? I mean it‘s a fantasy novel in less than 350 pages 🙄🙄

It was trashy and the typical ‘innocent girl falls for bad boy‘ trope but geez it had me sucked in. Obviously there could be improvements, but for a YA that doesn‘t require much attention, I loved it.

Curiouser_and_curiouser The book gave lots of ideas but left lots open to imagination. This series has brought all that to life and more. I'm loving it too, I've almost completed the first season.
