It feels like so long since I’ve done a tag, but I think this one is fitting for me at the moment…..freaking out at the size of my tbr (but there really is nothing new there!)
This tag was created by EarlyGreyBooks (see her vid here).

NEWEST FAVORITE CHARACTER
Bones from Halfway to the Grave

FAVORITE REVIEW YOU’VE WRITTEN SO FAR THIS YEAR
Probably for Aurora Burning
To say I was excited to read this is an understatement. Yes, I went in with high expectations. And oh my lanta, this book should come with a warning = Buckle up people, cause this is one hell of a ride!
‘Know the past, or suffer the future’
I wasn’t prepared for this. Mentally, physically, everything!
It was not just good, it was phenomenal!
There are so many things I loved about this book, the plot, the characters, new and original, the feeling of family, Scarlett, Fin and the mystery of Zila’s earrings!
But the clear winners for me are Aurora and Kal. I’m a romantic at heart and I was so interested in The Pull. Every time the word Be’shmai was uttered I melted in a puddle of love (please don’t read too much into that!!!!)
‘She is smoke and starlight, she is blood and fire, she is a song in my veins as old as time and deep as the Void.’
We get a little bit of everyone’s lives. The journey they each had to take to get where they are now and what the future could possibly bring. It was mostly heartbreaking but there was beauty there too.
It was non-stop action, mystery and drama. I was actually out of breath reading it! I mean these poor kids couldn’t catch a break! And that ending….I was like wtf, where’s the rest….noooooooooooo, it cannot be left like that!
They did it. The authors wrote a humdinger of a second book. Words fail me. It was totally and utterly amazing.
