I Met Leigh Bardugo and *fangirl*!

Ah! Finally time to write about another lovely and wonderful author meet!

If you haven’t been keeping up, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to meet Sabaa Tahir, Sarah J. Maas, and Leigh Bardugo all within a three week timespan last month. I wrote about all those experience and now I’ll conclude with Leigh. It’s sad but amazing at the same time because these three authors were within a 2 hour vicinity and how can you not?!

Review: “A Shadow Bright and Burning” by Jessica Cluess

Heavens me, it’s over, it’s finally over. I don’t think I could have read another page which is saying a lot because I read the entire book! There were so many times I wanted to DNF but I plucked up the courage to pushed through. Reluctantly. So reluctantly.

I’m sad that I didn’t like this book. It sounds freakin’ awesome! I mean, Victorian England and fantasy? What’s not to like? Those are my two favorite things…ever. Seriously.

Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Characters I’d Name a Child/Dog, etc. After…

I don’t think I’ve ever given serious thought to what I’d name my imaginary future children or anything other future dogs I may cuddle with… So this is kind of a hard one for me! I may not even come up with ten but that’s all the fun, right?!

Review: “Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2)” by Leigh Bardugo

Oh my stars, guys, where do I even begin?

I fell in love with Six of Crows when I read it back in July. Yes, I waited a bit to read it but I’d heard nothing but amazing things. It was a hyped book and it was brilliant. Unlike any book I’ve read before, taking me back into the familiar world I left in the Grisha trilogy.

Crooked Kingdom was one of my most anticipated books for September. Knowing Six of Crows was only a duology was hard to swallow but Bardugo’s writing matured greatly from the Grisha trilogy and I was pleased see that.

But this review isn’t about the Grisha trilogy or Six of Crows, it’s about Crooked Kingdom and the fact that I cried. Seriously. Not many books make me cry but this one did.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Read because…

Technically, this is supposed to be “books I read because someone outside of the book community recommended it to me.” Truthfully, I don’t know a lot of people I read so no one’s really recommending series to me… I picked up so many books due to starting a bookstagram a little over a year ago. Without that community, I wouldn’t have picked up half of the books I currently love.

I Met Sarah J. Maas and OMG.

I am super delayed in writing this post since it’s been nearly 3 weeks since I saw her but here I am! 🙂

I’ve been a fan of SJM since I read Throne of Glass some time last year. While I wasn’t overly excited about A Court of Thorns and Roses, I’ve been told I need to hold on and read A Court of Mist and Fury before I judge that series so… I’ll do that…eventually. 😛

I traveled to Watermark Books in Wichita, KS to see Sarah for her Empire of Storms tour. It’s a cute, local, independent bookstore in the city with a cute little café attached to it.
