“How many times have you told me you’re a monster? So be a monster. Be the thing they all fear when they close their eyes at night.”
The fantastic thing about Crooked Kingdom is that while it may not have been everything I wanted, it was everything that it needed to be.
Once again, it was driven forcibly off the edges of cliff by its wonderfully 3D characters, as Bardugo’s writing is wont to do. If Kaz was a monster in Six of Crows, then he was every bit more monstrous. And aside from him and Inej and in some broad strokes, Matthias, the other three crows had to face all kinds of demons that they’d been toying with at the end of Six of Crows and really bring the battle to the foreground.
If Six of Crows was the book of Kaz, Inej and Matthais, then Crooked Kingdom belonged to Nina, Jesper and Wylan.

How glorious to be able to do a book haul at the end of the month // I’d like to thank my parents for arranging for me to be born!!
Without further pathetic dramatics, let’s get right to the rather small, yet LIST of books I either bought or was actually given by angels, no less, I am so undeserving… *wails in Elvish*

this is a rant // apologies
WARNING: major spoiler for Alwyn Hamilton’s Rebel in the Sands. Read at your own risk.
I am religious.
I go to Church, I pray, I thank God for the good and fight Him about the bad; and although I’m not as pious and pure as I want to be, I try.
Because I believe.
Because I choose to believe and that phrase right there, ‘choosing to believe’ is what faith means.
You may say that you do not believe in the existence of God. Yet, this does not absolve you from having faith, from believing. You may choose to believe that the omurice you make is the greatest gift to mankind, and despite your family fleeing to the hills when you crack the eggs out, nothing will make you believe otherwise.
Faith… In your omurice.
I am a fanatic.
I am wildly enthusiastic about my fandoms. If you claim that you don’t find Harry Potter interesting, I will come after you with a blunt spear. Surprisingly, however, the previous statement will not bring the Terror Squad out on me after I’ve published this on the blog.
You will read it and you will nod in agreement that of course, anyone who doesn’t understand the phenomenon that is the Boy Wizard, must be indoctrinated… painfully.
Because you too, are a fanatic.
You have your cult. It’s called a fandom.
You trade bizzare Supernatural gifs online after sundown.

It’s been forever since I finished reading this. Technically it took me half a day of reading without bathroom breaks. 🙂

I figured I’ve procrastinated on my reviews long enough. Currently feeling quite un-eloquent, so excuse me while I get down with the facts.

Like blood to that one vampire who abhors it in fear of it transforming him into a monster… the angst, the pain, the countless hours spent sparkling in random woods…
In case my metaphors are falling flat, I hate ebooks, but I need ebooks or how would I read my lifelong target of 7954532198 books?
