Anna and the French Kiss
by Stephanie Perkins
Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris–until she meets Étienne St. Clair.

But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss? [Read more…]

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2)
by Sarah J. Maas
Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.
Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.
With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas’s masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.
Let me start off with the fact that I did NOT pre-order this book. I actually didn’t love A Court of Thorns and Roses and had serious mixed feelings about continuing the series. I thought “maybe one day” I would read it….but….day after day, friend after friend kept raving about how ACOMAF was a million times better than ACOTAR.
Here’s my mixed review for ACOTAR.
Alright, let’s get this party started!
***WARNING*** I normally never give spoilers but to be honest, I’m not sure I can talk about this book without some sort of spoilers. I’m keeping it fairly vague but BEWARE if you haven’t read it already. (And if you haven’t, stop whatever you’re doing immediately and go read it!) [Read more…]
