Gracling: Idiots to lovers who kick ass

Published in 2008, Graceling by Kristin Cashore is the first novel in a fantasy YA series. Yeah, it’s been a hot minute since this novel was published, but I think it deserves more attention. This novel has idiots to lovers, a hot prince, medieval fights, a toxic uncle, a killer heroine, and a soft prince who practices botany.

While I love fantasy novels with cute princes, see my short review for Kill the Queen, I enjoyed this novel because Katsa is a cute idiot!

Sleeping Beauty’s engaged to an Elf Prince! A review of ‘Enchanting the Elven Mage’

I was in the mood for more elf princes after finishing Deal with the Elf king so I decided to read Enchanting the Elven Mage by Alisha Klapheke. This story is a Sleeping Beauty retelling with a delicious twist. 

I mean the author didn’t have to add dragons, elves, witches, faeries, and killer wolves but we got it all.

Rent a Boyfriend: a cute winter read to say bye to Spring

Before I start this review I wanted to leave some links to support the Asian American community. In case you don’t know what happened in the US this past week 8 people of Asian descent were killed because of ongoing Covid racism and ignorance. If you witness hate aimed at Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders you can report the incident to the Stop AAPI Hate website.

A few years ago at the Los Angeles Festival of books, I listened to Gloria Chao confess that she named the love interest in American Panda after Sailor Moon’s boyfriend. I found it adorable and never forgot it.

 Coincidentally, I stumbled across Rent a boyfriend while browsing and decided to pick it up, unaware it’s penned by the same author.

Rent a Boyfriend is a novel by Gloria Chao that you might recognize from such books as American Panda and Our Wayward Fate.

Gorgeous book covers with phenomenal plots part one

Hello Readers!

Due to some Veterinary issues involving my dog Mimosa, I was not able to complete a video review for Ruin and Rising this week. But don’t worry! I shall not leave you without a blog post this today.

Don’t worry this is just part one of my list. I hope to add more books in the future.

Blue Lily, Lily Blue

Hello readers! I am back again with another review of the Raven cycle. This week I jumped into the third installment known as Blue Lily, Lily Blue.  Check out my other reviews of the Raven Cycles series here.

Previously on the Raven Cycles series, Adam learned to control his gift from Cabeswater, Ronan discovered his mother was a dream creation and rewrote his father’s will, Gansey and Blue began taking late-night evening drives but ultimately decided not to date each other because they didn’t want to hurt Adam.

Dreaming with the Raven Boys: Dream Thieves book review

The Raven teens are off on a new adventure in this second installment to Maggie Steifvater’s The  Raven Cycle. If you read my previous review of The Raven Boys, then you know how much I enjoyed the first novel. Luckily the sequel has lived up to my expectations.

 Unlike the first novel, where readers got to learn all about Blue and the Raven Boys, Dream Thieves focuses more on Ronan.
