    1. Awh, thank you, Drew! I totally saw you picked Nona, too! 😍 and yeah, I could have used Tyrant’s Throne and Strange the Dreamer for almost any and everything. I had to control my fangirl self. 😜❤️

  1. Great post! I haven’t read strange the dreamer yet but I’m planning to get to it soon. I’ve been wanting to read fever series for a while. Is this series completed? I enjoyed red sister and I’m so excited for its sequel. I can’t wait to read language of thorns!

    1. Thank you, love! 💗 Strange the Dreamer is… everything! I hope you love it! The fever series still have a few more left, and I’ll be honest, I have the two before this one each one star, but I love the rest. I had to put it under biggest surprised just because I thought I’d hate it like I did the last two. So…. go in at your own risk! Haha. 😜 and yeah, I’m in desperate need of anything Leigh Bardugo. 😍

  2. 57 books so far this year? Well done, I’m impressed!

    I’m so envious of people who have the time and freedom to read. Unfortunately, my personal circumstances these days very rarely allow me to read; certainly not as often as I would like. My days of finishing a 600 page book in a single day are long gone.
