#makeoutmarrymurdermonday

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the stabbiest one of all? I've always loved the darker side to fairy tales. There's something about taking the things I loved as a child and making them dark and devious that makes me so happy. Knowing that the original tales were pretty damn dark to begin with [...]

The Cruel Prince – Review

"I can see why humans succumb to the beautiful nightmare of the Court, why they willingly drown in it." Oh boy. It's been nearly a month since I've read this and I still can't decide whether I like this book. I don't hate it, but I definitely don't love it. Even though I really want [...]

The Tangled Lands – Review

"Magic makes bramble, and bramble makes kisses, and kisses make sleep that lasts until Kpala's children tear us to pieces. It was always thus. And yet you put yourself above the rest of us, and now all that magic blows in the breeze and brings bramble calling." The Tangled Lands took me a bit by [...]
