As you may know, I am a HUGE Sarah J.Maas fan… although I am yet to read Tower of Dawn and Kingdom of Ash but I promise I love her work I just suck at smashing my TBR pile.
Sarah for me, is an author I love because I find her writing consistenly great. She is an author that some love and some hate but for me I know I will always easily fall into her world. I lose myself in her writing style and characters so easily so when I heard she was bringing out another fantasy series I was SO happy. This is actually going to be her first ever adult fantasy series and today the title has been revealed, are you ready…
Drum Roll Please…
Title: The Wrath & The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
One Life to One Dawn.
In a land ruled by a murderous boy-king, each dawn brings heartache to a new family. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, is a monster. Each night he takes a new bride only to have a silk cord wrapped around her throat come morning. When sixteen-year-old Shahrzad’s dearest friend falls victim to Khalid, Shahrzad vows vengeance and volunteers to be his next bride. Shahrzad is determined not only to stay alive, but to end the caliph’s reign of terror once and for all.
Night after night, Shahrzad beguiles Khalid, weaving stories that enchant, ensuring her survival, though she knows each dawn could be her last. But something she never expected begins to happen: Khalid is nothing like what she’d imagined him to be. This monster is a boy with a tormented heart. Incredibly, Shahrzad finds herself falling in love. How is this possible? It’s an unforgivable betrayal. Still, Shahrzad has come to understand all is not as it seems in this palace of marble and stone. She resolves to uncover whatever secrets lurk and, despite her love, be ready to take Khalid’s life as retribution for the many lives he’s stolen. Can their love survive this world of stories and secrets?
Well what a starter headline that is… am I right?
I’ve been in and out of blogging for what probably is about a year now.
I said I would do better and I never did, frankly life is CRAZY but I won’t bore you with the details of why I left again. What I will say is how my new job makes my brain somewhat broken, which is what left me to the discovery of how I was once a reading snob… which probably isn’t the right term for it really, but read on and you’ll hopefully understand what I mean.
Today I want to do a post on Why do we avoid big books? This discussion post was actually inspired by another discussion post I read by Nyx on ‘Does the length of the book matter.’ This was such a brilliant discussion post and it got me thinking about big books and if we all avoid them.

Today I am coming at you with Five Upcoming 2019 Book Releases which I am excited for. I have been so out of the loop with reading that I haven’t seen many upcoming releases which I am actually kind of happy about, because I will come across them more organically when their on the shelves then. You know me, if things are too hyped my brain is like nope don’t read it yet. It’s weird I know…
Here are the five releases from the first half of the year I’m looking most forward to…
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! As we are coming up to the New Year I wanted to do a post on the books I read in 2018. This year I had set my Goodreads Goal at 50… and well I read 19. But even though I am considerably out on achieving that goal, I am taking this as a major win.
Romance reads are a huge love of mine. There is nothing better than a good romance book or even movie for that matter. I am probably in the 0.2% here but I have to have a little bit of romance in my fantasy and dystopian books as well otherwise I really struggle to get into them. That is something that not everybody loves and everybody has their own feelings about them, to me it just adds that little something more to the story.
I am always being asked by my friends to recommend a good romance to them so I decided it is about time I do a My Top Ten Romance Reads post for those wanting to find there next good love story!
August is here.
Can you believe it? this year is going ridiculously fast. This month has been a little slow and crazy to say the least… Lets see what i’ve been up to in July shall we?
Title: Roar (Stormheart #1) by Cora Cormack
Genre: YA Fantasy
In a land ruled and shaped by violent magical storms, power lies with those who control them.
Aurora Pavan comes from one of the oldest Stormling families in existence. Long ago, the ungifted pledged fealty and service to her family in exchange for safe haven, and a kingdom was carved out from the wildlands and sustained by magic capable of repelling the world’s deadliest foes. As the sole heir of Pavan, Aurora’s been groomed to be the perfect queen. She’s intelligent and brave and honorable. But she’s yet to show any trace of the magic she’ll need to protect her people.
To keep her secret and save her crown, Aurora’s mother arranges for her to marry a dark and brooding Stormling prince from another kingdom. At first, the prince seems like the perfect solution to all her problems. He’ll guarantee her spot as the next queen and be the champion her people need to remain safe. But the more secrets Aurora uncovers about him, the more a future with him frightens her. When she dons a disguise and sneaks out of the palace one night to spy on him, she stumbles upon a black market dealing in the very thing she lacks—storm magic. And the people selling it? They’re not Stormlings. They’re storm hunters.
Legend says that her ancestors first gained their magic by facing a storm and stealing part of its essence. And when a handsome young storm hunter reveals he was born without magic, but possesses it now, Aurora realizes there’s a third option for her future besides ruin or marriage.
She might not have magic now, but she can steal it if she’s brave enough.
Challenge a tempest. Survive it. And you become its master.
