High Stakes Fantasy Full of Magic & Intrigue // The Cursed Queen by Sarah Fine

My Thoughts: If you visit Lilybloombooks often, you’d know that Sarah Fine is my favorite author. I love her writing, the world’s that she creates, and of course all her character’s as well. And I was beyond excited to continue the series and immerse myself back into this fascinating world. Honestly, I was nervous when I found out that this isn’t a sequel to Elli’s story, but rather a companion story […]

A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess

My Thoughts: I’ve been in a rut when it comes to Fantasy novels lately – simply because I just haven’t been reading many these days. I had pretty high expectations heading into A Shadow Bright and Burning, and I’m happy to say it didn’t disappoint. A mix of magical fantasy, political intrigue and monsters in Victorian London, this book had a lot going for it. There’s an interesting magic caste; with Witches, Sorcerers and […]

A Bittersweet Ending to a Beloved Series // The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson

My Thoughts: There’s always that moment when you finish a beloved series where you go through a tidal wave of emotion. Sadness. Heartbreak. Glee. Sadness, again. (I also believe the 5 stages of grief may also apply.) Whatever emotions one does feel, it’s always sad to see a series end. (They are also the hardest to review, but alas.) What I loved most about The Beauty of Darkness is how […]
