Obsidio (The Illuminae Files #3) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff


Goodreads | Amazon US | Barnes & Noble | Book Depository | Books-A-Million


Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik narrowly escaped with their lives from the attacks on Heimdall station and now find themselves crammed with 2,000 refugees on the container ship, Mao. With the jump station destroyed and their resources scarce, the only option is to return to Kerenza—but who knows what they’ll find seven months after the invasion?

Meanwhile, Kady’s cousin, Asha, survived the initial BeiTech assault and has joined Kerenza’s ragtag underground resistance. When Rhys—an old flame from Asha’s past—reappears on Kerenza, the two find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict.

With time running out, a final battle will be waged on land and in space, heroes will fall, and hearts will be broken.


“Every story needs its hero.

And its villain.

And its monster.”

This book… I don’t even have words. It is definitely one of the best finales I have EVER read and my favorite book in the series by far. It just combined all of my favorite elements from the previous books and made one hell of an explosive conclusion! I was constantly on the edge of my seat, my heart always felt like it was going to beat out of my chest, and I was all in emotionally. For the last hundred pages or so, I was crying ever five seconds because I was just that invested in the story and the characters in it.

I’m really sad that this was the final book because I have grown to really love these characters (even AIDAN) and I hate having to say good-bye. It seems like the Illuminae Group just found each other and I could read a thousand more pages about their upcoming journeys together. I’m going to miss them dearly and I really hope that Amy and Jay continue this story in some way, no matter how small!

Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

Moving to a space station at the edge of the galaxy was always going to be the death of Hanna’s social life. Nobody said it might actually get her killed.

The sci-fi saga that began with the breakout bestseller Illuminae continues on board the Jump Station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of the BeiTech assault.

Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter; Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy’s most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion.

When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station’s wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren’t just fighting for their own survival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatia—and possibly the known universe—is in their hands.

But relax. They’ve totally got this. They hope.

4.25 🍁s

“Now, children, watch closely. Hold your breath. Listen. And I will show you the components of calamity.”

I really liked this book and I enjoyed it more than the first one. I found myself flying through it and, at one point, I sat down to read it and, what felt like an hour later, I looked down and had read 250 pages! There was plot twist after plot twist and so many times when my mind was completely blown. There is NO other book/series out there even remotely like this one and it is so incredibly unique!

Nik and Hanna- I loved these two so much and I just need more!

Ella- This girl had my whole heart in her hands from the beginning of the book until the end. I love her SOOO much and, when I thought she had died, I literally could not breath because I was sobbing so hard. Luckily for me and my heart, she is back now!

Jackson- Ewww. Did not redeem himself at the end. Still hate him. Period.

What I Didn’t Like- The alternate dimension thing. I felt like it was used solely so that the authors could rip my heart out by killing my favorite characters and then say “JK! Here is a perfectly “reasonable” explanation for us to play with your emotions and then take it all back.”

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and will probably be reading the next one. I just might want a break for a while because this series is so emotionally draining.

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files #1) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

23395680. sy475

Goodreads | Amazon US | Barnes & Noble | Book Depository | Books-A-Million


This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do. This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet’s AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it’s clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she’d never speak to again.

BRIEFING NOTE: Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.

3.5 🍁s

“You have me. Until the last star in the galaxy dies, you have me.”

For those that don’t know, I have never been a big sci-fi fan. The genre has never really appealed to me and there are just certain aspects of it that I really don’t like. So, when I started seeing people talk about this book a few years back, I was curious about it, but when I found out that it was an epic sci-fi, I immediately went “Nope, no thank you”. Well after reading this book and practically flying through it, I can admit to myself that that was probably a mistake… because this book is great. As someone who isn’t even a fan of the genre, I can say without a doubt that this book is out of this world unique and imaginative.

Kady- I loved Kady and her whole attitude! How could I not?! She goes through so much in this book and I could not sympathize/connect with her more.

Ezra- I loved Ezra as well. His whole smart ass attitude constantly had me laughing and some of my favorites part of the book involved him more often than not.

AIDAN- I don’t know how I feel about AIDAN. All I do know is that I cried when the Alexander was attacked and Kady and AIDAN said goodbye.

What I Liked- This book was HIGHLY unpredictable. People were dying left and right and there were SO many plot twists that I wasn’t expecting!

What I Didn’t Like- Surprisingly, I didn’t really enjoy the romance of this book. Maybe its because Ezra and Kady don’t see each other face to face at all or maybe it’s because they were already in love with each other before the book started, but I just didn’t connect with them for some reason.

Overall, I liked this book. I will be continuing the series, but I might just take a break for a while because it is so huge and takes so much of my time to read.

Sunshine Blogger Award | Take Two

**My first take can be found here**

Hello Lovelies! I was nominated a couple of months ago for this award again and, at the time, my mother has just passed away from a heart attack and I took a break from blogging. Well since I’m back now, I decided to do this post because it meant so much to me to be nominated a second time by Ally @ Ally Writes Things and especially at the time that I was nominated. Here is the post where she nominated me if you wanted to check it out.


  1. Thank the person/persons that nominated you and link back to their blog
  2. Answer the questions your nominator has provided
  3. Nominate 11 other people and give them 11 new questions to answer
  4. List the rules and display the award


1. If you could co-author a book with anyone, who would it be and why?

SARAH. J. MAAS!!! There could be no other answer for this question!!! I just love her books and her writing style so much and I would be honored to co-write a book with her.

2. If you could read a book for the first time again, which book would it be?

ACOMAF! It is my favorite book of all time and, while I love rereading it each year, it just isn’t the same as that first time. And there is truly nothing like reading your favorite book for the first time.

3. Are there any books you wish you didn’t read?

The Neighbor #4 because this book just made me so incredibly angry and was a complete waste of my time. I. HATED. IT.

4. What’s your dream job?

This probably isn’t too surprising, but my dream job would be an author. I would just love to walk into a book store one day and see my book sitting there on a shelf. It would just be a dream come true!

5. What was your favorite book you had to read for school?

Ohhh.. This was more of a tough questions because, let’s just be honest, I hated every book that I had to read for school… But I dug deep, and remembered I had to read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe for school one year and I absolutely loved it! So that would have to be the answer.

6. Why did you start your blog?

About a year ago, I started finding other blogger’s website when I looked up book reviews. I had been watching BookTube for years and I never had the confidence to make a channel so when I found out that book blogging was a thing, I realized it would be perfect for me. I wanted to find a place to share my love of books and my opinions on them, so I started Autumn Book Reads and… here we are!

7. What’s been your favorite book of 2019 so far?

Probably Remember Us This Way by C.R. Jane because that book just grabbed me from the very first page and just combined so many of my favorite elements. I just couldn’t, and still can’t, get it out of my head for the life of me.

8. Who was your favorite childhood author?

I discovered Cassandra Clare and her enrapturing Shadowhunters universe when I was ten years old and I fell in love! If you have read my About Me page, you know that I dedicate my whole love for reading to her and, to this day, she is still one of my favorite authors.

9. What’s your phone background?

I’m not exactly sure what this question means… But if it is what I think it is, the most phone experience I have is answering them for my mom when her office was super busy.

10. If you could meet any fictional character, who would it be?

This question is SOOOOO hard because there are just SOOOOOO many that I want to meet!!! I just love them all and I would do ANYTHING to meet any of them! BUT if I had to pick one, I would say Will Herondale because I just love him so much and we could talk about books for hours and *exhales dreamily* it would just be perfect!

11. What fictional character do you aspire to be like, and why?

Probably Sang from The Ghost Bird. She just always seems to find the bright side in everything and, despite all that has happened to her, she is still so happy and just a great person.


  1. What is the worst character death you have ever read?
  2. What book would you own a hundred copies of if you could?
  3. What two characters, from different series, do you think would make a great couple?
  4. Who was the first blogger you ever followed?
  5. What character do you wish you could swap places with for a day?
  6. If you could get an ARC of any one of your most anticipated releases, which would it be?
  7. What is your least favorite book you have read this year?
  8. What is a book or series that you feel is overrated?
  9. What is a series you have been wanting to get into, but keep putting off?
  10. What is a hyped book you have no interest in reading?
  11. What is your favorite female and favorite male character?

*WWW Wednesday is a meme currently hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words.*

The three Ws are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

I know that it is not Wednesday, but since my Wednesdays are taken up by my Top 5 Wednesday post, I post my WWWs on Monday. It is the start of the week and just makes more sense for me personally.

Currently Reading:


I am currently reading Godsgrave (The Nevernight Chronicle #2) by Jay Kristoff. I am LOVING this book and flying though it. I’m really scared because I have heard that it ends on a massive cliffhanger and I have no idea how I’m going to wait for the next book!



Recently Finished Reading:


I recently finished reading one of my new favorite books, Nevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle #1) by Jay Kristoff. I just loved it SO much and flew threw it. There was plot twist after plot twist and I have completely fallen in love with Mia and her world.

My review can be found here if you want to check it out.


To Read Next:


I am going to be reading Obsidio (The Illuminae Files #3) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff next. I finished the first two books a couple weeks ago and, after my brief break, I am really ready to get back to it. I am SO excited to finally get the conclusion to this series and I can’t wait to read it.



Thank you for joining me today! What are some books on your WWW list?

Fae Crate Unboxing | Trial Run (June 2019)

Screenshot_2019-06-11 Fae Crate - Let's live a thousand live together

Hello Lovelies! I’m back with another unboxing of my favorite subscription box, Fae Crate. These boxes are the highlight of my month and I could not love the items more! I hope you enjoy this month’s unboxing as much as I did!

June’s Theme:

Image result for trial run fae crate

Let’s start off with this month’s theme which was Trial Run! I loved this theme and I was SO excited when I learned that the art work was based off of one of my favorite series, A Court of Thorns and Roses!!! The art of Feyre and the Middengard Wyrm is just so beautiful and fit the theme SO perfectly!

The Box Itself:

For those that didn’t see my unboxing last month, this is what the box looks like. It’s beautiful isn’t it?!

I just love everything about this book and the way it looks. The color and logo fit the company perfectly, the *CAUTION: magic inside* lid is absolutely adorable, and the sides that have the company slogan which say, “Let’s live a thousand lives together” just warms my heart.

The Items in the Box:


TBR Drawstring Bag ~ This bag is just so cute and definitely goes with my TBR level! Sometimes, it feels like my TBR is never ending!


Ready Player One Puzzle ~ I love putting puzzles together while binge watching a TV show so I grabbed this puzzle really quick! And it wasn’t one of those easy/twenty minute puzzles either. It was actually challenging and it looked SO great when I finished it!


Gilded Wolves Car Coasters ~ I haven’t read this series yet, but these coasters have made me really want to. They are just so mysterious and fancy looking! They already have a spot on my desk!


Six of Crows Wristband ~ The band says, “TRICKERY IS MY NATIVE TONGUE” and I could not be more in love with it if I tried!!! It just fits Six of Crows so well!

The only minor complaint I have is that I wish the background art was different.


Prythian Globe ~ This item is my favorite bookish item I have EVER gotten! I have always been a collector of maps and the Prythian map is my favorite of all!! This globe is like a dream come true for me and it already has a special place on my bookshelves!

Monthly Polaroid and Coin:

For those that don’t know, each month Fae Crate has a monthly Polaroid picture that they include and (starting last month) a monthly coin. These are exclusive to each month and you cannot get them again. Fae Crate announces what the Polaroid is to look like and what fandom the coin is going to be from on their Instagram. I highly encourage you to check them out so you can decide if you want a box before they sell out!


Warcross Polaroid ~ I might not be a part of this fandom, but I really liked this month’s Polaroid. I am starting a collection and I love this new addition to it!

Raven Cycle Coin ~ AHHHHHH!!!! This coin is just so great and I love it so much and I can’t stop screaming!!!!

July and August’s Polaroid and Coin have already been announced. For those that want to know, they are:

  • July ~ Carry On Polaroid and The Young Elites Coin
  • August ~ King of Scars Polaroid and Percy Jackson Coin

Monthly Ebook Download:

Each month not only does Fae Crate include a hardcover book, but they also include a code so you can download a free ebook! The ebook for this month was The Rest is Silence by Chii Rempel. This is an LGBTQIA+ fantasy and it sounds just so interesting!

The download code was included on the back of this card which is just SO beautiful and I will definitely be keeping it:


Book of the Month:

Screenshot_2019-07-19 Untitled Design

The Book of the Month was The Red Labyrinth by Meredith Tate. The hardcover included in the box for this month was a Fae Crate exclusive which means that you can’t get it anywhere else! The cover on the left is the original and the cover on the right is the exclusive.

The book also came with a letter from the author and a signed book plate (which I have already added to inside the book):

Thank you for joining me today! I had so much fun opening this box and talking about all of the bookish items inside! What about you? Do you subscribe to Fae Crate? Do you subscribe to any other monthly book boxes? What do you think of my unboxing and the items in this month’s box? Please let me know!

Top Ten Tuesday | Auto-Buy Authors

Hello Lovelies! After a SUPER busy summer, I am finally back! I am going to be re-starting all of my weekly posts (Top Ten Tuesday, Top 5 Wednesday, WWW, First Line Friday, ect.) which I am SO excited to get back to.

Anyways, today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is auto-buy authors. I really enjoyed this topic because it was a little different and it was almost a recommendations list of my top authors! Without further ado, here they are:

Image result for sarah j maas

Did anyone really think I could make a post about auto-buy authors and not mention my absolute fave? Sarah J. Maas is the queen of my bookshelves and seeing all of my multiple copies of her books proudly displayed is one of my favorite things about collecting books!

Image result for cassandra clare

Just like Sarah, my shelves would be incomplete without the newest Cassandra Clare book! I truly treasure Cassie’s books and adding a new one to my shelf every year is just so satisfying to me.

Image result for jay kristoff

Jay Kristoff is a new author to my auto-buy list, but after reading The Illumine Files recently and currently reading Nevernight, I can’t imagine not buying whatever he comes out with! He is just so talented and his writing has enthralled me!

Alexa Riley

If you haven’t heard me talk about this author before, Alexa Riley is a co-author duo that releases a lot of short books each month. Typically between 2 and 4. I automatically buy whatever book they release because I enjoy them so much and they are such short reads. I can finish them in two hours or less and they are all on Kindle Unlimited so I pay virtually nothing for them.

Image result for quinn loftis

I am so thankful that my friend introduced me to Quinn Loftis and her books a few years ago. I have fallen in love with her world and all of the characters in it and I always look forward to her next installment, no matter what series it is in.

Related image

Jennifer L. Armentrout is an author that I have come to love, no matter what genre she is writing. I look forward to all of her new releases throughout the year and waiting for them is always brutal.

Related image

C.L. Stone is the mother of all RH and her books are like caffeine to me! I CAN’T GET ENOUGH!!! I am so sad that she hasn’t released a book this year and I am just crossing my fingers that we get news of one soon.

Related image

I can’t put into words how addictive Jane Washington’s book are or how much I love her writing style. It’s pure magic and I will automatically read anything with her name attached to it.

Image result for laurann dohner

Laurann Dohner is another one of those authors that I will read anything she writes, no matter the genre. I am just so confident in her ability to capture my attention when I read one of her books and she keeps me hooked the entire time.

Image result for scarlett dawn

I love Scarlett Dawn and her books. Unfortunately, she just hasn’t been able to release that many books lately. But believe me, the second she announces her next book, you will hear me screaming from the roof tops.

Image result for becca jameson

I have read so many of Becca Jameson’s books, it’s not even funny. I just can’t get enough of her male characters and her romances are just so great. I can never get enough of her books!

Thank you for joining me on Top Ten Tuesday. I hope you enjoyed reading my post as much as I did writing it. I always enjoy getting to talk about my favorite authors and I hope you found a new one today to look into. Every one of the ones on this list is a treasure!

Also, if you did a TTT post, feel free to leave a link to it down below so I can check yours out!

Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag { 2019 }

Screenshot_2019-06-30 Artstudio – Dashboard.png

Hello Lovelies! And Happy 4th of July to all of my fellow Americans!!! We’re halfway through 2019 and, as usual, this tag is floating around every where again. I’m really excited to get to participate this year along with everyone else and I hope you enjoy!

𝐁𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐁𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐘𝐨𝐮’𝐯𝐞 𝐑𝐞𝐚𝐝 𝐒𝐨 𝐅𝐚𝐫

I couldn’t possibly pick just one book for this question, so I decided to pick a best new book and a best reread.

40660140. sy475 Sunshine and Bullets was a book I read in February of this year and it captivated me. I could not put it down and I flew through it. I can not give this book higher praise and I am SO glad that I read it.




17927395. sy475

Was there any possible way that A Court of Mist and Fury wasn’t my favorite reread?! This book is my favorite of all time and I could not love it more if I tried. Each time I read it, I fall in love with the characters all over again and my feelings for the series only gets stronger.


𝐁𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐒𝐞𝐪𝐮𝐞𝐥 𝐘𝐨𝐮’𝐯𝐞 𝐑𝐞𝐚𝐝 𝐒𝐨 𝐅𝐚𝐫

43802161. sy475

As soon as I saw this question, I knew that there could be no other answer than Remember You This Way. Let me tell you, after reading the first book in this trilogy, I didn’t possibly think that I could love it more… but this book proved me SOOOO wrong! It was phenomenal and I need the next book like I need air!!!

𝐍𝐞𝐰 𝐑𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐞(𝐬) 𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐇𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐧’𝐭 𝐘𝐞𝐭 𝐑𝐞𝐚𝐝, 𝐁𝐮𝐭 𝐖𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐓𝐨

29774026. sy475

I need to read this book so bad it isn’t even funny. I have been dying to get my hands on it for months now and I finally went to my library to check it out and put it on hold. Unfortunately for me, that was two weeks ago and my friend Raven that works at the library decided to inform me yesterday that she’s currently reading this monster of a book… so I’m not gonna get my hands on it anytime soon! 😂


30075662. sy475

I saw the trailer for this book a couple months ago and thought it was interesting, but ended up brushing it off because it’s a sci-fi and those aren’t typically my thing. Well… after reading The Illuminae Files very recently, I’ve realized that sci-fi is my thing when it’s by these two wonderful authors!! I want to read this book SO badly and it is at the tip top of my “Book Buying List”.


36314220. sy475

As a GIANT Cassandra Clare fan, I am ashamed to say that I haven’t read any of the books she has released so far this year. I know… It’s bad. I just haven’t been in the right mood for her since the disappointment that was Queen of Air and Darkness… BUT I have every intention of reading this collection of stories as soon as I am in the mood for them!


𝐌𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐀𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐢𝐩𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐑𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐞(𝐬) 𝐅𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐒𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐝 𝐇𝐚𝐥𝐟 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐘𝐞𝐚𝐫

This question was harder to answer than it would typically be because my top two favorite authors, Sarah J. Maas & Cassandra Clare, aren’t releasing any books for the rest of this year. After thinking real hard though, I was able to come up with these answers:

24951850. sy475

I have been waiting for this book for what feels like forever. I devoured the first book last year and I just need the next one! I need more of Luc and Evie’s story ASAP!




43174656. sy475

I recently binge read the rest of the Lords of the Underworld series and I could not be more hyped for this book to come out in December! I love Fox and I want her story SOOOO bad!



𝐁𝐢𝐠𝐠𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐃𝐢𝐬𝐚𝐩𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭

25026912. sy475

This question was SO easy because I just read this book and the disappointment from reading it is still very fresh in my mind…

After waiting two years for this book, I was finally able to read it when I checked it out at my library. Imagine my disappointment when it was a complete flop of a book. I can’t even begin to describe how upset I was that that was the book I had waited so long for.

My review can be found here if you want to read more into why I didn’t like it.

𝐁𝐢𝐠𝐠𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐒𝐮𝐫𝐩𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐞

23395680. sy475

OKAY! After years of people recommending this series to me and hyping it up SO much, I decided to give this book a shot… and I was shocked to my core over how good it is! I read it so quickly and immediately jumped into the next book. I am getting ready to start the third one and I couldn’t be more excited.

𝐅𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐍𝐞𝐰 𝐀𝐮𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐫 (𝐃𝐞𝐛𝐮𝐭 𝐨𝐫 𝐍𝐞𝐰 𝐓𝐨 𝐘𝐨𝐮)

Image result for jay kristoff and amie kaufman

After my answer to the last question, this answer shouldn’t come as a surprise. I just love this co-author duo so much and, after starting Jay’s Nevernight series, I couldn’t be more convinced about the talent that these two have.


C.R. Jane

I fell in love with C.R. Jane’s writing when I read The Sound of Us and I fell even deeper when I read the Fated Wings series. I just adore her books so much and I always look forward to her next book.



𝐍𝐞𝐰𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐅𝐢𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐂𝐫𝐮𝐬𝐡

Image result for nik illuminae

Nik Malikov from Gemina! Anyone that knows me knows that I have a soft spot for morally grey male characters… and Nik certainly is that. I could not love him more!

𝐍𝐞𝐰𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐅𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐞𝐫

39786262. sy475

Eva from Fated Wings has easily become one of my favorite characters. She has just been through so much and how she still has so much compassion and forgiveness in heart after all that has been done to her is beyond me.

𝐁𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐌𝐚𝐝𝐞 𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐂𝐫𝐲


This book tore me up inside. Xhex just goes through so much and I have no idea how she made it through. Just reading about it made me go through emotional distress.. I can’t imagine actually being involved.

𝐁𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐌𝐚𝐝𝐞 𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐇𝐚𝐩𝐩𝐲


For those that don’t know, Paris and Sienna’s story starts developing in book two of this series… but you don’t get their full story until book nine. So, I was understandably very happy when I finally got to this book!

𝐌𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐁𝐞𝐚𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐟𝐮𝐥 𝐁𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐘𝐨𝐮’𝐯𝐞 𝐁𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡𝐭 (𝐨𝐫 𝐑𝐞𝐜𝐞𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐝) 𝐒𝐨 𝐅𝐚𝐫 𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐘𝐞𝐚𝐫


Not only is this book absolutely GORGEOUS, but I also received it signed which made it all the more special to me! I love Jennifer L. Armentrout’s books and, I have to say, this has to be my favorite cover so far!

𝐁𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐬 𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐍𝐞𝐞𝐝 𝐓𝐨 𝐑𝐞𝐚𝐝 𝐁𝐲 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐄𝐧𝐝 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐘𝐞𝐚𝐫

30295312. sx318

I need to get to this book SO bad! I just have this feeling that I’m going to finish it and then I will be dying for the next one which doesn’t come out until late next year…





I have been wanting to read this book since I finished the first two installments. I ended up waiting months and months for this book and, now that it’s out, I just haven’t had the motivation to read it. I think that this mostly because this is the final book and I’m just not ready for it to end!!



68428. sy475 I keep saying I’m going to read a Brandon Sanderson book, but then I never get around to actually reading one. BUT THIS IS THE YEAR!! I’m going to do it!!!
