How did your 2015 sum up? Wishing you all the best New Year!! :) 


  1. haha NOOOOO you are team Tamlin? I'm Rhysand all the way! I totally loved Six of Crows though! It was amazing! I can't wait until Crooked Kingdom. A lot of people loved Inej and Kaz but I was particularly partial to Nina and Matthias :) Did you read The Grisha Trilogy? Amazing post! Seems like you had a great reading year!


    1. OH MY GOSH ME TOO! Rhysand all the way, I agree! There's something about him that attracts me so much. I can't wait for the sequel to come out next year!

    2. In all honesty I would prefer Tamlin for myself, but I really did love Tamlin and Feyre together! Maybe with ACOMAF I will be swayed ... ;p

  2. I AM SO EXCITED FOR LADY MIDNIGHT. Hands down, the Throne of Glass series was the best series I read this year! And you're not alone in Crown of Midnight. That book was souls crushing! But then again, Queen of Shadows left me in a puddle of feels. And a month-long hangover!
    Trying to balance blogging and senior year in high school was a struggle this year for me too! But we're alive and we go through it... Woo hoo!

  3. YAY for all the Raven Boys and Throne of Glass love! I have to tell you I had a blast keeping up on your progress and reading your reviews as you worked your way through some of my all-time favourite books/series! :D I WILL READ Bracken in 2016 and hopefully I will get my hands on Legend too! Oh and I loved your Harry Potter posts <3 Happy New Year Lillie and I wish you nothing but the best in 2016, in books, blogging and real life! xx

    1. When you read Bracken you gotta keep me updated! Tweet me, DM me, anything!! :D

  4. I agree that Winter was the best series finale! I do believe it's the best series finale that I have ever read. The Rose Society was SO GOOD!! I think it was even better than the first one. I loved The Legend series, but I think I like this newest series even more. I still need to read the Throne of Glass series. I loved A Court of Thorn and Roses, so I am sure I will love Throne of Glass.


  6. Hey, thanks for following me. I'm glad to be "meeting" you - this is a great time of year to be introduced to a new blog! :-)

    So sorry you didn't love These Broken Stars - I did, but we can't all agree on ALL the books, right? I haven't read ANY of your top three books - yet - but I definitely plan to! I got Six of Crows for Christmas, so that ones high on my priority list!
