It was so great to dive back into the world of the Iron Fey! I love the magical setting so much, and I didn’t realize how much I’d missed it. It was also fantastic to see the characters again, and interesting to see how much had changed. From the outside looking in, Meghan and Ash seem to have almost god-like status – elevated and untouchable. It’s so vastly different to read about them as secondary characters instead of main ones.

Do you ever have those times where you go into a book knowing full well you wouldn’t like it? Yeah, this was one of those for me. Why the hell did you read it, then? some of you may be asking. Well, there’s this annoying thing called the Hype Monster. And I let that little turd get the best of my curiosity. Things I liked: How brutal, dark, and bloody it was The lies and betrayal The not-relationship between Cardan and Jude […]

Audiobook Review: The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

I don’t think Julie could write anything that I won’t love! This was my first ever Julie book, so it holds a special place in my heart. I read this for the first time years ago, when Iron Queen had just come out, read it again before The Iron Knight was released, so this time listening to audio is my 3rd time! It’s definitely an old favorite of mine. I love the world that Julie creates. I usually don’t care […]

Why do we desire, above all other things, that which has the greatest power to destroy us? A little backstory first: I am SUPER picky about fae books. In fact, there’s only two I can think of that I’ve genuinely enjoyed: The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa and the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. Before this book came out, the hype was unreal. I was DYING to get my hands on it, and the ARC reviews were positively glowing. […]

Aw man, Julie never disappoints! I always forget how much I miss this world until I step back into it again. I love it so much! I’m not much of a fan of fae stories these days, but I love the way Julie writes them. I’m sad to see this series end, but what a wonderful end it was! I looove how twisted the world was. The carnival tent in the Between was totally creepy! I was definitely cringing at […]

Ugh. Where do I start? I struggled through about 90% of this book. I’m thinking Holly Black books are maybe just not for me – I DNFed both Coldest Girl and White Cat. I wish I had DNFed this one too. The pacing was painfully slow. There wasn’t much happening for the majority of this story, with nothing but intrigue to keep you going. Actually, it didn’t seem like there was any plot at all in this book. Nothing really […]
