Before jumping onto this blog post I wanted to take the time to thank Marie and Alexandra who both nominated me for some Book Blogger Awards categories! It feels surreal to have people enjoying what I’m doing here, I truly find myself a new passion next to Instagram with this blog and I’m incredibly happy to see that you all seem to enjoy it too. So a big thank you to everyone and to those two amazing bloggers!
Now, let’s jump right in into the second part of my summer recommendations andlet’s talk fantasy!
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
❥ The plot of the first book in the Empirium series, Furyborn
When assassins ambush her best friend, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing herself as one of a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light, and a queen of blood. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven elemental magic trials. If she fails, she will be executed…unless the trials kill her first.
One thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a fairy tale to Eliana Ferracora. A bounty hunter for the Undying Empire, Eliana believes herself untouchable—until her mother vanishes. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain and discovers that the evil at the empire’s heart is more terrible than she ever imagined.
As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world—and of each other.
If you don’t know, Lady Midnight is my favourite book of whole time. Ever since I first read it for the first time in January of 2017 I then read it five more times. Did I ever get bored of it? Absolutely not.
As this book is a part of the very long Shadowhunters Chronicles I have to say that you don’t have to read the Mortal Instruments nor the Infernal Devices series in order to understand it. Though if you skip those series you will end up being spoiled while reading Lady Midnight, but you do you. If you’re curious to know how to read the series I actually filmed a video on IGTV to present you different ways to do so.
Today I wanted to share with you five reasons why you should read Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare, no matter if you’re a fan or not of the Shadowhunters Chronicles. Ready? Let’s go.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review as part of a blog tour.
❥ THE PLOT
“Prepare for a snow-frosted, blood-drenched fairy tale where the monsters steal your heart and love ends up being the nightmare.” – Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-Touched Queen
A girl who can speak to gods must save her people without destroying herself.
A prince in danger must decide who to trust.
A boy with a monstrous secret waits in the wings.
Together, they must assassinate the king and stop the war.
In a centuries-long war where beauty and brutality meet, their three paths entwine in a shadowy world of spilled blood and mysterious saints, where a forbidden romance threatens to tip the scales between dark and light. Wicked Saints is the thrilling start to Emily A. Duncan’s devastatingly Gothic Something Dark and Holy trilogy.
“This book destroyed me and I adored it.”- Stephanie Garber,New York Times bestselling author of Caraval
If you don’t know, Autumn is by far my favourite season. I adore Winter but there is something about Autumn that always makes me feel good, that makes me feel at home even. I spent my summer creating a Pinterest board for it and only seeing pictures of the rain, the orange leaves on the ground and pumpkins warmed something my chest. I know that Autumn is not officially here, but for me it is: the air is cooler, the sky is grey and I can wear jumpers again.
I am sure that many of you will understand as it is a lot of readers’ favourite season, and that’s why I decided to present you all the books I adore to read and re-read during Autumn.

Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice–and in Nova. But Nova’s allegiance is to a villain who has the power to end them both.
