The Prison Healer

Posted on

This was a Fairyloot book, and it is STUNNING. Gorgeous, beautiful. No words! Anyways, you guys are here for an actual book review, right?! Maybe not. The Prison Healer was unexpectedly wonderful. I didn’t know what I was getting into when I started this book. This book is fabulous on so many levels. It doesn’t have the same type of theme/concept as other YA books, so it was a bit different of a read, which I really enjoyed about it.

First off, I am prefacing this with I got this book in Fairyloot’s August 2021 box – Lovestruck. Mind you, I haven’t enjoyed YA contemporary in some time. It just hasn’t hit me in the right way that it does for others. Not that it isn’t good, a lot of it is, but generally isn’t for me. Saying that, I felt obligated to read this book as it came in my box. I hadn’t heard of this (but now that I’ve read it, I’m seeing it everywhere!) so I went into this with pretty much no knowledge of anything. That is totally on me. Word to the wise: read book summaries before starting books.

Fire with Fire

Posted on

Fire with Fire was a Fairyloot pick. However, it had already been on my radar of books I was interested in. DRAGONS. Who doesn’t love dragons? I love them in all their forms. It also mentioned sisters and rivals and dragons and who doesn’t love all those things? I was really hoping that I was going to be blown away by this book, but in the end it was middle of the road for me.

Six Crimson Cranes || a retelling

Posted on

I was SO excited for Six Crimson Cranes because I adored her Blood of Stars duology. This was Fairyloot’s July book pick, and the book is absolutely stunning!
I went in with high expectations for this one. I didn’t end up loving this one as much. I did still find it enjoyable, just not to the extent that I liked her other series. This was not a bad book by any stretch of the imagination, but there were a few parts in it that I didn’t love as much. I knew that this was a retelling, but I don’t think I’ve ever read the original, so I went into this without any preconceived notions about what to expect in regard to the original versus the retelling. That is a benefit to me, and usually works out better.
