Reading Update/Intro to Prisoner of Darkness book 2 in the Whims Of Fae series

Yes, yes I know I messed up several blog posts by calling this book the Prince Of Darkness instead of the Prisoner of Darkness and I’m sorry for that but, there is a Prince of Darkness in it, it just happens that Scarlett and Raith are his prisoners. So it all works out with the mix up. Lol So, when the first book ended, Scarlett and Raith survive the forest trial and Raith loses his right to the Summer Crown which his brother Cade now has. In a weird twist of fate, Cade spares both their lives even though the rules state clearly that they must be executed. Cade returns to the Summer court as king and never lets on that he left Scarlett and Raith to die but never took their lives himself. Scarlett is saved by the potion that the Unseelie Prince gave her at the start of the trial and she is able to save Raith from death as well from her newfound Fae powers that the potion has given her. But everything with bargains dealing with the Fae comes at a price. And now Scarlett and Raith are prisoners of the Unseelie court and the Prince has some rather interesting and very steep ideas if payment in exchange for saving their lives. But all is not what it seems, and Raith and Scarlett both are in for the fight for their lives (round 2) again, as they devise a plan to get out of the Unseelie court. I’m still at the beginning so I’ll fill you in as time goes on. But wow it’s like yay they’re alive but oh my…they’re up against death again and it’s getting so dark in this series, guys. Like this series is really, really dark. I love it though. Like I’ve said before, there’s a beauty in darkness. So, until my next bookish update, stay tuned and as always, happy reading. -Caroline

My First DNF in awhile! What?!!!

Yup. I still don’t like it. Actually, I hate it. This is like my second or third time trying to read this and it was terrible. Like so bad I’m DNFing it. Right now. And donating the book. Cause yikes. I hated it lol. Well, that’s that I suppose. On to the next book. I’ll have to find another side book that’s a stand-alone cause the last two were just meh. I’d give this book like 1/5 stars on the goodreads scale. Hence why I’m DNFing it. So, moving on. Stay tuned for more bookish action coming your way. And as always, happy reading. -Caroline

Reading Update/Intro to Revelations Book 3 in the Blue Bloods Series

So as promised, here is the reading update/intro for Revelations which is the third book in the Blue Bloods Series. I’m already 34% of the way done with this book and it’s magnificent. It leaves right where the second book left off where Schuyler has saved Mimi’s life due to her special abilities and has also found out that not only did she save Mimi’s life but that Mimi and Jack are also her long lost siblings and everything is about to become way more complicated because everyone, including Mimi thinks that just because Mimi and Jack are bonded as twins, that Schuyler and Jack can’t be together. But that’s not true. Jack and Schuyler are meant to be together in the current cycle and Mimi doesn’t know it yet and neither does Jack. It’s all very kinda weird and a little incesty cause technically they’re brother and sisters but they’re vampires so somehow that’s like okay in this book. Yeah…It’s kinda gross but like I said. Vampires. They’re different apparently. So anyways, Schuyler has also taken her best friend and Conduit Oliver as her human familiar which if he wasn’t already head over heels for her now he’s completely and hopelessly devoted to her for the rest of eternity. So yeah there’s that too. Did I mention that Schuyler is now adopted by Mimi and Jacks dad too by the way? Yup. Yikes…If that’s not complicated enough, the Silver Bloods are still hunting down their kind and an all out war will be starting soon. And where does Bliss and the others fall in this? No more spoilers for now. But check it out. It’s a great read so far. Next up, a reading update for the Whims Of Fae book 2 Prince of Darkness. It’ll be both an intro and an update I think. So stay tuned and as always, happy reading. -Caroline

General Aesthetics post : The Towering Sky

Inspiration board for The Towering Sky

Hey guys! Good afternoon. This is a general Aesthetics post for The Towering Sky which is the third book in the Thousandth Floor trilogy. For this inspiration board, I used lots of pink and glitter because it’s a very glamorous book so far and a bit mysterious too. Very heavy on the drama. I love it. It’s girly without being too girly and obnoxious. I really am enjoying it so far and I’m about 15% done with it so pretty early I’m still. Which is okay with me because I’m taking my time with it. Next up is a reading update for Revelations which is book 3 of the Blue Bloods Series. So keep a look out for that as well. And as always, happy reading. -Caroline

General Aesthetics Post: Flutter Book 3 in the My Blood Approves Series

Flutter inspiration board

Hey guys so this is the inspiration board for Flutter that I made. When I think of this book and the series in general from this point on, I think classic goth/punk vampire vibes. Lots of black. Lots of darkness. Things are about to go down in the series that could get pretty ugly. But I find there’s a beauty in dark things sometimes and it’s definitely true for this series. So, dark, classic vampire. That’s the inspiration. A little cliche but if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Next up will be a new general Aesthetics post for The Towering Sky. So stay tuned, and as always, happy reading. -Caroline

Intro/First Impressions: Flutter Book 3 in the My Blood Approves Series

Good evening guys! I’m sorry it took me like two to three days to get this posted but I was super busy. Anyways, this is the intro post to Flutter which is the third book in the My Blood Approves Series! I started it already and am about 20% done with it so far so still very much at the beginning. In this book, it starts off with Alice waking up from being turned by Jack and finding out that her bond with Peter has been severed. Peter, she discovers left but only to also found out from Ezra that days after she turned, Peter has decided to go on a suicide mission to get himself noticed by governing vampires and killed. Alice feels responsible for Peter’s grief over the breaking of the bond, and against everyone else’s wishes, she goes with Ezra on a trip across the world to try and save Peter from dying. Now it’s been a very long time since I’ve read this so I’m not sure quite what happens next but I’m at the point where she’s on the plane and finding out where in the world they’re off to to try to save Peter essentially from himself. First impressions for me were kinda rough to be honest. If it were me, I’d let Peter go and be happy that I was with Jack but apparently Alice feels differently much to my irritation…I really was looking forward to some fluffy cute vampire scenes between her and Jack and now I feel like that’s being completely ignored and making it out to be like she has something with Peter. Which she doesn’t. At least I think. I don’t know. It’s a bit confusing. All I remember is the general feel of the series gets much, much darker after awhile. But I’m still looking forward to reading it. Next up, is a general Aesthetics post for Flutter and a new general Aesthetics post for The Towering Sky book 3 in the Thousandth Floor Trilogy. So get hyped. Be ready. And happy reading. -Caroline
