Red Queen

When it comes to books, I have absolutely no shelf control. The last time I visited the library, I basically cleared out half a shelf of YA fantasy books. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard was one of the books I had happened to pick up, it sounded intriguing, […]

The Cruel Prince

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black can best be summed up by a quote directly from the book: “it’s exhilarating and terrifying, like so much of Faerie.” I read this book from start to finish with my heart racing and my palms sweating, not knowing what to expect. […]

The Witch of Nightmares
