“A nightmare, I’d told Tamlin. I was the nightmare.”
Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit—and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well. As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords—and hunt for allies in unexpected places.
Title: A Court of Wings and Ruin
Author: Sarah J. Maas
Genre: New Adult, Fantasy
Number of Pages: 705
Publishing Date: May 2nd, 2017
(I kept contemplating whether or not I wanted to post a review for A Court of Wings and Ruin because I read it so long ago but I decided I should since I’ve reviewed literally every single Sarah J. Maas book that I’ve read so far and I don’t want to end that reviewing streak.)
I had so many high hopes for this novel, I truly did. A Court of Mist and Fury was so good. So good. It’s quite possibly one of the best books I’ve read and I’m complete Sarah J. Maas trash but, to be completely honest, this wasn’t my favorite book by her. I felt like the plot was all over the place, the writing felt so repetitive, and the last 100 pages are what I’m most grateful for because those pages are what saved the entire novel.
The rest of this review contains spoilers!
When BFFs Charlie, Taylor and Jamie go to SupaCon, they know it’s going to be a blast. What they don’t expect is for it to change their lives forever.
Charlie likes to stand out. SupaCon is her chance to show fans she’s over her public breakup with co-star, Reese Ryan. When Alyssa Huntington arrives as a surprise guest, it seems Charlie’s long-time crush on her isn’t as one-sided as she thought.
While Charlie dodges questions about her personal life, Taylor starts asking questions about her own.
Taylor likes to blend in. Her brain is wired differently, making her fear change. And there’s one thing in her life she knows will never change: her friendship with Jamie—no matter how much she may secretly want it to. But when she hears about the Queen Firestone SupaFan Contest, she starts to rethink her rules on playing it safe.
Title: Queens of Geek
Author: Jen Wilde
Genre: YA, Contemporary
Number of Pages: 288
Publishing Date: Mar. 14th, 2017
This book has diversity, important issues/topics that are addressed, two adorable romances (one of those being a f/f romance), fandoms, and a fandom convention all packed together in one young adult contemporary story that contains witty writing and own voices representation. Honestly, what more is there that I could want from a book? Queens of Geek is definitely one of my favorite novels that I’ve read this year. It was witty, funny, and so relatable. Everything about this book was so well done and I flew through it… in one day… and one of those reading sessions was at 3am because I could not stop reading this book… and I eventually had to force myself to go to sleep so I could wake up and immediately start reading again. Putting that aside, this book was so amazing and I fell in love with it from the very first page.

I know, I know, it’s way past June and thus it is way past the reasonably acceptable time to post the Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag. But here I am, completing the tag, because I am a rebel. (Actually, no, I just took a blogging break and this is the one tag that I really wanted to complete this year so… yeah.)
This tag was created by Chami from ReadLikeWildfire (watch her video here) and Ely from Earl Grey Books (watch her video here). I completed this tag last year so if you’d like to see my 2016 Mid-Year Book Freakout Tag you can check that out here.
So, without further ado, let’s dive into this tag!
