Totally agree with Illuminae, The Hating Game and Simon. All were so good and lived up to the hype. I’m waiting to get Children of Blood and Bone from the library again but I was enjoying it.
Weren’t they! I love recommending them to people now and continuing the hype train haha. Yeah I need to get back to it but I liked what I read so far!
I’m so glad you’re liking Children Of Blood And Bone – it’s one of my favourite reads of 2018 so far!
I can see why! I can’t wait to get back to it 🙂

Anna and the French Kiss is soo precious. I kind of want to reread it. I also can’t wait to read The Song of Achilles!
I’ve reread it a couple times, it’s the cutest! One of the first contemps I read. Oh my goshhhh it is a gorgeous book, I love it so. I hope you do too!
Soooo, this tells me I really need to get off my butt (ON my butt?) and read The Song of Achilles asap
Oh my gosh yes!! I had three friends gush about it and they were completely right. It’s a gorgeous book.
I have Six of Crows staring at me from my TBR and now I desperately want to read it, even though I have 493201 other things to read. 😂
I know that feeling! I actually read Six of Crows a couple years after it came out and it was SO worth it! I hope you love it too.
