Mary: The Summoning – Hillary Monahan

This review is long overdue, and I'm finally caving and just writing a mini-review for it. I originally gave it 3.5 stars and was going to round up to 4, but as time has gone on, I've realized I can't really justify rounding it up to 4 stars.

This book meant so much to me. I honestly went into it not expecting … Continue reading The Hearts We Sold – Emily Lloyd-Jones

Kings Rising – C. S. Pacat

#1 Captive Prince ★★★★☆ #2 Prince's Gambit ★★★★★ Spoilers ahead for the first two books!  A kingdom, or this. Holy hell. I was not ready for this series to end. What I wouldn't give for a fourth book, even if it was just full of domestic fluff and precious, tender little moments. I would pay good money for a limitless supply … Continue reading Kings Rising – C. S. Pacat
