The Gilded King by Josie Jaffrey // Spoiler-Free Review

In the Blue, the world’s last city, all is not well.

Julia is stuck within its walls. She serves the nobility from a distance until she meets Lucas, a boy who believes in fairytales that Julia’s world can’t accommodate. The Blue is her prison, not her castle, and she’d escape into the trees if she didn’t know that contamination and death awaited humanity outside.

But not everyone in the Blue is human, and not everyone can be contained.

Beyond the city’s boundaries, in the wild forests of the Red, Cameron has precious little humanity left to lose. As he searches for a lost queen, he finds an enemy rising that he thought long dead. An enemy that the humans have forgotten how to fight.

One way or another, the walls of the Blue are coming down. The only question is what side you’ll be on when they do.

Mini Book Reviews // July 2018

A miracle occurred this month and that miracle was that I actually read some books. I’ve been in the biggest slump lately and didn’t want to read for the sake of it but I am back and almost better than ever. I couldn’t decide which book to review fully so I thought I’d share some mini reviews instead. So without further ado, here are the three books I read in July and a wrap-up of what I thought about them. Continue reading “Mini Book Reviews // July 2018”

Review: A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas

Review: A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas

So, a couple of weeks ago, the highly anticipated ACOFAS was released, and I definitely got swept up in the hype. I’ve avoided reviewing books from this series, but I’m going to try my best to write up a review for this novella!

note: I will be reviewing this for what it is – a novella bridging the first trilogy to the next set of books set in this world. When ACOFAS was announced, we knew it’d be a novella, not another huge novel – and at 270 pages, it’s still a fairly long novella!

PS. this review WILL contain spoilers for ACOFAS.
