5 Things About The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

5 Things About The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

February 27, 2018 Review 6 ★★★★

“No matter how careful I am, eventually I’ll make another misstep. I am weak. I am fragile. I am mortal.” Not what I expected at all I think from the synopsis and hype I was sort of expecting THE CRUEL PRINCE to be a mix of A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES and AN ENCHANTMENT OF RAVENS. However, it definitely […]

Review: Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

March 16, 2016 Review 24 ★★
