    BOOK REVIEW : COURT OF LIONS (MIRAGE #2) BY SOMAIYA DAUD

    I read Mirage last month and loved the Moroccan-inspired story set in a star system with the brutal Vathek Empire. I had high hopes for this book as Mirage was a splendid debut with a beautiful world, culture, and traditions. We followed Amani, a young girl who gets kidnapped and brought to play a body double for the Vathek Princess Maram. The Kingdom is expanded further, and we get to see more of the amazing world.

    YA BOUND BOOK TOURS – BOOK REVIEW : LIVE LIKE LEGENDS BY KATE CORNELL

    Live Like Legends is a typical starter YA fantasy with a stronger focus on romance. The story is a fun, entertaining, and engaging read that you can easily pick up and finish in a day.

The whole idea of an immortal beast destroying a country by killing the royal family also added to the dark theme of the book. Kalista…

    BOOK REVIEW : A HEART SO FIERCE AND BROKEN (CURSEBREAKERS #2) BY BRIGID KEMMERER

    A Heart So Fierce And Broken is the second book in the Cursebreakers series. The moment I finished ACSDAL I wanted to just continue with the series and find out what was going to happen next. With the epilogue that finished off in book 1 I really wanted to see how this story will take off. This book is also in dual perspectives and this time we are introduced to some new characters and we get to see some of our older characters as well. The book continues from where we left off in book 1 and we follow Grey as he is on the run from his previous life…

    BOOK REVIEW : A CURSE SO DARK AND LONELY (CURSEBREAKERS #1) BY BRIGID KEMMERER

    A Curse So Dark And Lonely is a fairytale retelling romantic fantasy of Beauty And The Beast. I have been wanting to read this book for a long time. The book was definitely interesting. I loved how the author took the fairy tale and made it into a fun and entertaining fantasy novel with amazing characters. I enjoyed every second of it. The book was action-packed with high stakes from the get-go. I loved Harper and how wonderful and believable see was. Rhen and Grey were equally amazing. The book was fast-paced and was definitely a page-turner. I thought the world was set and introduced organically. The books in dual…
