“But just remember that this fear of yours? It means you have something worth fighting for – something you care so greatly for that losing it is the worst thing you can imagine.” 

Guys. I cannot even form words. This was amazing. There was SO much to digest! I needed a while. After some thought, I do think I’d give it 4.5 stars for some minor plot devices and choices, but omg it was a brilliant book. I still don’t even know if I can coherently discuss my thoughts about it. I am sure it will be pretty all over the place, but what can you do 🤷‍♀️. When something is this magnificent you just start talking about it okay?!? Spoilers below, so beware!

Game of Thrones Book Tag

Book Tag Tuesday (1)

So I accidentally got sucked into some Sansa/Sandor meta earlier (cough cough accidentally) and it made me think about how much I miss Game of Thrones and want it to come back ASAP. And not just for SanSan 😉. Now, currently I have only read the first book in the series (when I was far too young for it I think hahaha whoops!) and after that, I have just watched the show. I didn’t really want to mix the two, so I plan on reading all of the books once the show ends. And the show is taking forever!!

But anyway, here’s a book tag to honor my intense yearning for the final season of Game of Thrones.

20170925_195045

Wind-seeker, her mother had once called her. Unable to keep still, always wandering where the wind calls you. Where shall it beckon you to journey one day, my rose? 

How far the wind had now called her.”

Guys. This past weekend, I was very prepared to post a book review and my write my Book Tag Tuesday, even though I had to drive to Pensacola for a memorial service. I was so prepared in fact, that I did not even feel the need to bring my laptop >:/ And, of course! I needed it to finalize the post/pictures. So, that did not get done this weekend and then work has already been crazy this week…I know these sound like excuses, but I swear I will tighten up!

But, anyway, I am back for a new review!! Yay! This one is a book that I was not too excited to read, but did so out of loyalty and trust in the author. And of course, Sarah J Maas did not disappoint! Tower of Dawn was an amazing book. It was written so well, the story was captivating, and the ending/plot twists packed a serious punch! There were some things that I did not enjoy, which forces me to give the book 3.5 stars, as opposed to the 5 I would give it otherwise. I feel a bit bad, but I could not overlook the way some things in the book were handled. But, more on that below!

And, duh, spoilers.
