I love books that go beyond my expectations.
I mean, who doesn’t?? It means a lot tp ME, because usually, books end up being worse than I expected and I get hit by disappointment like no other.
But this time… IT WAS THE OTHER WAY AROUND.
I liked these books better than I thought I would??? Surprise!!
Girl Made of Stars was one of my most anticipated releases of the year (I saw that my request had been accepted at school and struggled not to scream) and it was even better than I had imagined. So SO GOOD.
And I honestly didn’t expect much out of Isle of Blood and Stone besides an average fantasy (especially since the beginning was slow) but it ended up surprising me and being much more entertaining than I’d suspected!!!

I am very very salty over An Enchantment of Ravens.
Did I expect to love it? Yes. Did I expect it to live up to the hype? Yes. Did I expect it to be worthy of the pretty cover and a great first ARC and a story about the intriguing world and NOT all romance? YES.
And did I get any of those things? NO.
Thus why I’m salty.
As much as I hate to review an ARC so negatively, it’s important for me to get a review back to the publisher in exchange for receiving the (BEAUTIFUL) book for FREE, so here we go!
Note: I’m still on hiatus. You may have seen me answering comments, but I will NOT be answering any comments on this post until I feel like I’m ready too. :)) Continue reading “An Enchantment of Ravens // So Much Potential, but an Overwhelming Romance (I’m so Salty) [ARC Review]”
In YA, you either like fantasy or contemporary better.
There’s no “I like both equally!”. You will always love one more than the other. Even just a little bit.
It’s okay, little mangoes??? You’ll survive this startling realization. But to help out with the shock, I’m also bringing to your attention this tiny little question:
Which genre is “better”?
Not “which genre do you like better?”. Which genre IS better??? Because we truly need to know which one is more beneficial to us as
mangoes crazy bookworms human beings.

I am utterly and completely DESTROYED by this book.
A Conjuring of Light by VE Schwab is absolute PERFECTION. I finished it on Tuesday and fangirled a bit (A BIT) in Wednesday’s post, but OMG IT DESERVES A REVIEW. IT IS JUST THAT AMAZING.
You know when you finally finish a book and just breathe out a sigh of relief??? Like “omg I’m done wow it feels so weird to finish”.
WELL. MULTIPLY THAT BY ONE MILLION AND IT STILL WON’T BE ENOUGH.

You’d think that I’ve read enough beautiful books that I wouldn’t be surprised by another.
I read A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab a few weeks ago. And gosh, it was absolutely MAGICAL. Or maybe that’s because the book involved magic???
Ignore me while I cry please.
*note that this is my first review of ever and because I have like no experience writing reviews, my thoughts are probably all over the place and it’s disorganized. whoops.
