Trust by Kylie Scott ARC Review

book-review[I received a free advance review copy in exchange for an honest review]
This was my very first Kylie Scott book and it went incredibly well. I was a little hesitant starting this book; YA contemporaries have started to blend into each other in my mind, forming this one plot that basically repeats itself. This book, however, literally blew my mind. It dealt with some serious issues pretty bluntly, something you don’t usually come across in YA books. Bullying, sexual harassment, body shaming, PTSD, panic attacks, etc… Continue reading

First things first, I want to acknowledge how incredibly mind-blowing this series is. I had a hard time engrossing myself into Six of Crows at first. The beginning made no sense to me whatsoever. I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into other than the fact that I was going to be able to understand what everyone’s going crazy about with that book. My first time reading it, I had a lot to take in. Continue reading

But then this one was like a mashup of these two, only it was way more exotic and beautiful. Continue reading

My Interview with Hannah Bucchin: The Author of Paintbrush

“She was the heir of ash and fire, and she would bow to no one.”

I don’t know where to start with this one. Honestly? I didn’t understand all the hype for this series until I started Heir of Fire. I loved Rowan and Aelin’s thing. They’d be constantly bickering and fighting and I’d sit there and be like: Go at it, kids. Fight all you want, you’re going to fall for each other soon.
