"These are the stars. This is your life. These were your choices."

I went into this thinking it would be a romance. It's not.

We meet Santi and Thora over and over again, every chapter a new life, a new way of knowing one another; as friends, colleagues, lovers, enemies.

I desperately wanted to unravel the mysteries of this and it gives it to you, slowly, until it smacks you in the face towards the end.

The first thing you ought to know
is that it wasn‘t my father‘s fault.
Not the bad luck, not the lies.
Certainly not the curse.
I know some will try to blame him,
but he had little to do with it.
And I want to be clear that
it wasn‘t entirely my fault, either.
Not the bad luck, not the lies.
Certainly not the curse.
Well.
Maybe some of the lies.

You put in expired contacts?” He sounded personally offended
“Just a little expired.”
“What‘s ‘a little‘?”
“I don‘t know. A few years?”
“What?” His consonants were sharp and precise. Crisp. Pleasant.
“Only a couple, I think.”
“Just a couple of years?”
“It‘s okay. Expiration dates are for the weak.”

This was just so magical and the perfect read for Christmas. I know the Author did ballet herself and there are a lot of ballet references. I don't know the first thing about all the Croisé, Plié and Arabesque. I just pictured her dancing pretty😅

“I am yours and you are mine, Miriam—"
I quake at those words.
“—but I am not like you, and you should never forget that.”

About 200 pages in and loving it so far?I read Pestilence when it first released and liked it a lot, but sort of forgot the rest as time went? seems fitting to continue the series now, as the fourth book is right around the corner?

Like her previous books, this had all the magic and wonder I enjoyed from her Caraval series. I loved Jacks and Evangeline. Next year can't come soon enough, I need the second book, preferably now?

This went in a different way than I was expecting, but in a really good way. They had tension, they had history and they had problems. All in the confined space of a hotel they were forced to work together in. A great read!

"They were two very different men who knew each other inside and out. They were somehow too intimate and too apart at the same time. It was a paradox."

I'm addicted to this series of standalone romances. They're so good.

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐

"The Wolf‘s story was one of mythic beasts, and as it was told through the centuries, he became one, too."

For some reason, I thought this was an adult dark fantasy, but it was neither adult nor very dark. I probably would have enjoyed it more if it were.

"They would fight, tooth and nail, to survive the next year of their lives, and if they were as steadfast and talented as the Society presumed them to be, most of them would. ​
Most of them."

This book kept me reading, kept me wondering, curious how it would end. ?

Ah, this book... this was truly everything you could ever want in a fantasy romance and then some. It had politics, great worldbuilding, rich characters, magic and swooning romance all neatly wrapped in one standalone book. This is definitely a new favorite of mine ❤ Highly recommended 👌

Another Beauty & the Beast retelling, only this time, Beauty is the Beast.

I never get tired of this retelling and this was a fresh take on the familiar farytail. I devoured it in ine sitting, staying up far into the night to finish.

"Humans and dragons? They don‘t mix very well.”
“Because you monsters are always trying to kill us?” I crossed my arms.
“Because we don‘t take the time to understand one another.”

"Like life, what gives a story its meaning is the fact that it ends. Our stories have lives of their own—and its up to us to make them mean something."

I picked it up this morning, meaning only to read a few chapters, but then night came and the pages ended. The story is great and, in addition, deals with anxiety and depression.

It took me a few chapters to get used to the writing style, but once I did, I went on quite a ride. I loved all the annotations at the bottom of the pages and I loved Mia and Mister Kindley. The entire story was dark and thrilling, and I'm reaching for the second book.

“You really shouldn‘t stare at a woman like that.” He blinks a few times. “I wasn‘t staring.” “You were.” Averting his gaze, he returns to face the fire. “Oh, and how should I look at a woman then?” “Not like they‘re prey.”

A Beauty and the Beast retelling with a dash of Bridgerton. This was so good. The tension, the plot, the smirk and sweetness of it all.

The story was a bit long and slow, some problems and situations kept popping up almost at an frustratingly regular pace. All in all, I did enjoy the book with it's beautiful world building and plot.

So Nesta had become a wolf. Armed herself with invisible teeth and claws, and learned to strike faster, deeper, more lethally. Had relished it. But when the time came to put away the wolf, she‘d found it had devoured her, too.

This was a wild journey filled with magic and wonder. I can't believe it's only 232 pages, it was a quick read but so much happened I feel like i've just been on this epic adventure of a lifetime. The world building is amazing and the characters were well developed. Desperately in need of the second book though😅

I stopped on this because "oh, beautiful cover", but felt the title were a bit "hm... maybe not". That said, I read some comments and decided to give it a go and damn... I'm just about 60% through but this is just impossible to put down. I'm just sucked in and probably never coming out?
