Hey guys!!! So excited today to share my thoughts on Queen of Nothing!!! I have been waiting for this book since…well since I read The Wicked King when it came out lol. So when I finally had my hands on this baby, I simply devoured it!

Power is much easier to acquire than it is to hold onto. Jude learned this lesson when she released her control over the wicked king, Cardan, in exchange for immeasurable power.Now as the exiled mortal Queen of Faerie, Jude is powerless and left reeling from Cardan’s betrayal. She bides her time determined to reclaim everything he took from her. Opportunity arrives in the form of her deceptive twin sister, Taryn, whose mortal life is in peril.Jude must risk venturing back into the treacherous Faerie Court, and confront her lingering feelings for Cardan, if she wishes to save her sister. But Elfhame is not as she left it. War is brewing. As Jude slips deep within enemy lines she becomes ensnared in the conflict’s bloody politics.And, when a dormant yet powerful curse is unleashed, panic spreads throughout the land, forcing her to choose between her ambition and her humanity…

Hey guys! Today I want to tell you about an adult book for once! It is the fourth book in the Chocolat series… maybe you’ve heard about Chocolat, as there was a movie made from it with Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp. It was a beautiful story, full of the magic of little things and of course, chocolate of all kind! Now that time has passed, Viane had another daughter, and she is the focus of the Strawberry Thief!

Hello fellow bookdragons! How are you surviving this post-Christmas time? On my side, I’m still waiting for my days off to start tonight!! I’m enjoying a few minutes of freedom though, so I decided to talk about one of my most immersive reads of this year: The Wicked King!
I do not have the words to describe properly this book and how much I loved it. Even more complex and tenebrous than The Cruel Prince, the Wicked King takes us to a new level of cunning and treachery, while surrounded by the beauty of Faerie.

Hello book dragons!

I just finished An Assassin’s guide to love and treason and IT WAS SO GOOD! I read it in a bit more than a day (lol, I guess two days right?), I simply couldn’t put it down, from the beginning to the end. It had been quite a while I hadn’t read a book like that, but it was so worth it!
