The One | Kiera Cass
post image

The selection series was decent, the one was my favorite out of them all. Happily Ever After was pretty cute too, I just wish Kiera hadn't written the heir and the crown because they weren't good thanks to a brat named Eadlyn 🙃

tiffo Eadlyn really was such a brat. 5y
illicitsighs @tiffo I would give anything to punch her in the mouth then sew it shut 5y
tiffo I agree! I also didn't love the way the series ended, either. So annoying 🙄 5y
illicitsighs @tiffo kiera should've just left it a trilogy 🙃🙃 5y
tiffo Agreed. The Heir and The Crown did not live up to expectations, sadly. 5y

“Three dark queens
Are born in a glen,
Sweet little triplets
Will never be friends

Three dark sisters
All fair to be seen,
Two to devour
And one to be Queen”

I read the first book in the Ruby Red trilogy, bought the last two and never finished them. I need to finish them but I can't remember what happened in the first one lmao.

This book was really disappointing. I was so excited to read it and it just wasn't as good as it could've been. I felt as if the main characters were just stereotypical and a waste at most parts.

romiewedeservelove Yeah I don't feel like reading it 5y

A Little Life: A Novel | Hanya Yanagihara
post image

“I have become lost to the world
In which I otherwise wasted so much time
It means nothing to me
Whether the world believes me dead
I can hardly say anything to refute it
For truly, I am no longer a part of the world.”
– Hanya Yanagihara, A Little Life

Cruel Beauty | Rosamund Hodge
post image

“They said that love was terrifying and tender, wild and sweet, and none of it made any sense.
But now I knew that every mad word was true.”
– Rosamund Hodge, Cruel Beauty

Cruel Beauty is one of my favorite books of all time. It's a loose Beauty and the Beast retelling, but better.

Deadwritersclub Nothing is better than beauty and the beast. Chill 5y
illicitsighs @Deadwritersclub nothing can beat those slurping noises you're right 5y
tiffo I haven't heard of these, however these will be my next book splurges. Love retellings! 5y
illicitsighs @tiffo crimson bound was okay, it was decent 5y

While I enjoyed the concept of this story, i wasn't the biggest fan of the fact it was written like journal entires. I've never been a fan of that. 🙃

AReaderUnderTheSea Ooh well now I'll be wary since I'm not a fan of that either :| 5y

Uprooted | Naomi Novik

Everyone always raves about this book, but honestly it wasn't anything special. There were plenty of problems within in it that some overlooked. Would I recommend? Not really.

#uprooted #naominovik

romiewedeservelove It's a book I have literally no interest in. 5y

The Royal We | Heather Cocks, Jessica Morgan
post image

"How about a real toast?" Clive interjected. "One that uses words in a sensible order."
I held up my shot and thought for a second. "Thanks, everyone for the warm welcome. Sorry about the Revolution."
Nick hoisted his pint glass. "We'll get you next time."

When the Moon Was Ours | Anna-Marie McLemore
post image

“To the boys who get called girls,
the girls who get called boys,
and those who live outside these words.
To those called names,
and those searching for names of their own.
To those who live on the edges,
and in the spaces in between.
I wish for you every light in the sky.”
