  1. CAN WE JUST AGREE THAT LEGENDARY WAS EVERYTHING AND I LOVED IT!!?!?! I’m so glad you enjoyed Furyborn ahhh, I’ve heard so many mixed things and idk whether to read it or not… Grace and fury + Sky In the deep look really interesting. I’m glad you enjoyed SKY it sounds amazing!!

    1. LEGENDARY WAS SO GOOD AND… SWOON-WORTHY? And I really enjoyed Furyborn, but it is so polarizing. Did you read and enjoy Queen of the Tearling? I feel like that’s the fairest comparison. And I am so excited for Grace and Fury! And Sky in the Deep was so surprisingly atmospheric! I hope you love them all! And I hope you’re having an amazing end of the month, love! Happy reading! 💗xx

    1. Oh my gosh, I feel like the month of June is going to be like “wanna read this with me, Lily?” hahaha! But let me know if you want to read Radio Silence AND/OR We Are the Ants! Hahahaha! And I hope you’re having an amazing end of the month, love! 💗xx

  3. Wooo, that’s an awesome haul you have there! 🙂 Ugh I’ve been so eager to read Spinning Silver but it’s not available for international bloggers. :/ Can’t wait till it comes out so I can buy it! 🙂 The Mermaid too, I’ve been wanting to start Christina Henry for a while now, and can’t wait to buy that one! 🙂

      Happy reading, love! 💗xx
