It's taken me forever to review Three Dark Crowns and One Dark Throne because I keep turning them around in my head. They're maddening because the story never takes the path that you expect, but they were also fantastic reads, even if you aren't normally a YA reader.
The very quick gist of the story is that each queen of Fennbirn island will bear triplets, and those triplets will compete with each other to the death to become the next queen. Throw elemental magic into the mix and the story becomes even more complex. Since the books deserve their own review, I'll leave the plot at that for now. Four books are planned for the series, with the final two being released in 2018 and 2019.Read More

I can't even begin to describe how excited I was for Always and Forever, Lara Jean! It's the third (and last) book by Jenny Han about Lara Jean's high school life, and it's absolutely charming. Lara Jean is a very down-to-earth, homebody-type that likes to bake and read and go to bed early--so basically she is my soul mate. She also has a super hot boyfriend named Peter that I may have a literary crush on (I do).Read More
