    Enjoy your reading! I hope to read Burn sometime soon as well!
    Currently I’m reading The boundless and listening to The deck of omens 🙂

      I haven’t read anything else by her yet, but this was … scraping in at ‘good’. 3 stars. I didn’t love it – but I did go in expecting a good B&tB retelling, which was silly because I had just finished a fantastic B&tB retelling…

    YOU READ THE BOOKISH AND THE BEAST???!?!??!?! Omg, I am so excited for it, what did you think of it? Tell me everything.
    I’ve been wanting to read Aurora Rising for a while and well, I thought I’d get to it with Aurora Burning coming out but I couldn’t.
    I’m currently reading A Match Made in Mehendi and it’s going great so far!

      Bookish was ADORABLE. The story is cute and I LOVED it. However, I am hoping the copy that Netgalley sent me is not a final copy because (and I HATE saying this – it breaks my heart), it really needed one last edit. There were timeline inconsistencies (like a couple of things had been moved around in the story), and some paragraphs were repeated in a slightly different way in the same chapter (like they were figuring out where it fit best but forgot to take one out). I gave Netgalley ALL of my feedback and asked them to forward to the publisher, but who knows how that actually works?! Anyway, I seriously hope they fix it, because it might be my favourite of the three if they do.

Let's chat!
