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.

Five reasons why you should read Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Dear reader,

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.

Dear reader,

May is Mental Health Awareness Month.

If you know me then you know that mental health is something very close to my heart and that I try to bring awareness towards it every day. I talk a lot about it on my Instagram and always try to be honest in order to help others realising that they aren’t alone. Obviously I had to write a few posts dedicated to it this month.

Today I wanted to present to you all my five favourite books which deal with mental health.

That’s why today I want to present you five books that me to love myself first. Continue reading Five books that taught me to love myself first 💗

Five reasons why you should read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Dear reader,

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.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again Book Tag

Dear reader,

I have been meaning to do this tag this summer ever since my friend Lucie @ Of Wishes and Pages did it but time went by and I had to wait. Well, now is the time!

I love the Mamma Mia movies with all my heart but since I saw the first one quite late I have to say that the second one has a bigger place in my heart. As it deals with grief and family it really helped me as I lost my grand-mother three months ago and it has been the hardest thing I have ever had to live. I cried every time I watched Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again and have been obsessed with the young cast, and still am. It made sense that I would have to do the Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again Book Tag, originally created by Ashley @ Ashleyoutpaged.
