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.

❥ The plot
Shane has been doing college all wrong. Pre-med, stellar grades, and happy parents…sounds ideal—but Shane’s made zero friends, goes home every weekend, and romance…what’s that?
Her life has been dorm, dining hall, class, repeat. Time’s a ticking, and she needs a change—there’s nothing like moving to a new country to really mix things up. Shane signs up for a semester abroad in London. She’s going to right all her college mistakes: make friends, pursue boys, and find adventure!
Easier said than done. She is soon faced with the complicated realities of living outside her bubble, and when self-doubt sneaks in, her new life starts to fall apart.
Shane comes to find that, with the right amount of courage and determination one can conquer anything. Throw in some fate and a touch of magic—the possibilities are endless.

❥ 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, Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is one of my favourite books in the whole wide world. I have been re-reading it over and over again and apparently I still can’t get enough of it. There’s something about this book that makes me feel better – I even keep it on my desk to make sure that I see it every day and so it will work its magic on me.
The thing is that this book is a win or loose deal: You either adore it or hate it. Indeed, Fangirl is a characters driven novel and there’s no real story within it. That’s why today I wanted to present you five reasons why you should read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

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.

I have now decided that I will post my book reviews every two weeks on Sundays. As I enjoy reading (I read a lot of book reviews) and writing some, I really want to get back to it. It’s always so nice to read some book recommendations online to figure out what to read next.
Today, I will share four different mini book reviews that deal with OCD. Mental health is a very important subject for me and as I suffer from OCD I thought I could share with you all some of the latest books I read about it. They will all be short so this blog post won’t be too long. So without further ado, let’s dive into it!
