Is The Cruel Prince Worth the Hype?

Holly's Black The Cruel Prince was one of the most popular and controversial books in 2018.

5 Books I Hate

As much as we readers love books, we don't always love every book we read. Some books are merely disappointing, while others are downright infuriating. These are five books that inspired that kind of intense dislike in my heart. Also, if one of these books is one of your favorites, that's great! Keep in mind that not everyone will enjoy the same books, and that's okay. Different opinions are great because the world would be incredibly boring if we all thought the same way.

Kingdom of Ash Spoiler Review (It's FINALLY Over)

I have always fallen awkwardly in the middle: I don't hate it, but I certainly don't love it. I find Sarah J, Maas' books to be enjoyable and digestible but I can't help but notice the glaring flaws and issues with things like plot and representation. This book was no exception and I found it equally entertaining and frustrating.

Recent research has discovered that we have about 11 years left to reverse or to prevent the damage to our environments before these effects become permanent. If this doesn't motivate you to make some very simple yet effective life changes, I don't know what would.
