A Curse So Dark And Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

*Spoiler free*


Fall in love, break the curse. It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope. Nothing has ever been easy for Harper. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s instead somehow sucked into Rhen’s cursed world. Break the curse, save the kingdom. A prince? A monster? A curse? Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.

I don’t know really how to start off but by saying this book made me all ajhs;dkrsgsldkg. It started off amazing, it continued to be amazing, and it ended amazingly. The whole books was just one solid block of awesomeness.

Books On My Shelf I Want To Devour: Fantasy Edition


With BookCon having recently passed and Tuesdays being a regular occurrence, there are tons of books on my shelf that I have not read yet, but am dying to get into. I have a slower reading pace, so I cannot devour books the way my brain and feelings would like me too. So I thought I would catalog some of the books sitting on my shelf that I want to beam into my brain!

What If It’s Us by Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli

*This review will not contain spoilers*

I hope you think my sheep jammie pants are as cute as I do haha.

ARTHUR is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a showstopping romance when you least expect it. BEN thinks the universe needs to mind its business. If the universe had his back, he wouldn’t be on his way to the post office carrying a box of his ex-boyfriend’s things. But when Arthur and Ben meet-cute at the post office, what exactly does the universe have in store for them . . . ? Maybe nothing. After all, they get separated. Maybe everything. After all, they get reunited. But what if they can’t nail a first date even after three do-overs. What if Arthur tries too hard to make it work and Ben doesn’t try hard enough? What if life really isn’t like a Broadway play? But what if it is? What if it’s us?

This was the realest book I’ve ever read. And I think that is the first time I’ve said that and thoroughly enjoyed the book. Books that feel so ‘real’ have never really sat well with me, most likely due to my emotion state when I read them. But this was was so wonderful.
