“We hunted the flame together, found the light in the darkness, but we are far from done, laa? Now we unleash it. We free the stars, shatter the darkness holding us captive, and return the world to the splendor it once was.” What a beautiful ending to an amazing duology! If you haven’t read We Hunt the Flame yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR. Hafsah’s storytelling is simply stunning! Lush and magical world, unique and fleshed out characters, action-packed plot. […]

If you enjoyed These Broken Stars, you’ll definitely enjoy this one too! It had a similar feel despite the fact that the world and concept was pretty different. I loved the setting and the concept! There’s a land of magic and gods on the ground, where only one remaining divinity still reigns. All the rest of the gods are believed to have abandoned the land of magic to the sky, but there’s a hidden city of science in the sky and […]

She had read enough stories to know that the princess and the monster were never the same. I absolutely adored the Persian culture and lore!! It was such a rich and beautiful world that I wanted to crawl into the pages and live there. I loved reading about the div (demons) too! I am super pleased with the twist the romance took! It’s hard to talk about anything without spoiling it – I didn’t know much going in and was […]

After spending nearly a month trying to get into this one and fighting with myself over picking it back up, I’ve decided it’s time to let go. Which makes me SUPER bummed, because it was one of my most anticipated 2020 releases!! I wanted so badly to love this one, but I made it 200 pages in and I was still struggling hardcore and feeling really apathetic toward it. It started off really strong – I was enjoying the writing, […]

I honestly have NO idea why I put off finishing this series for so long!! I read the second book way back in 2012, and this one came out early 2014, but I just…never read it. Oops. I suck at series. I guess part of me thought I was going to be let down? I’d heard some really mixed things about this last book, so that probably led to me putting it off too. I shouldn’t have worried! Although, I […]

This book was one of my most anticipated 2020 releases! I was DYING to get my hands on it, and was ready to start begging (okay, I kind of begged in buy/sell/trade groups, trying to get someone to trade with me lol), and I finally got lucky enough that the publisher responded to my ARC request with a Netgalley widget! Yay! Did it live up to the hype? Yes and no. Honestly, I was a little disappointed in it overall. […]
