This is the most beautiful love letter to fandoms there could ever be. Hilarious, romantic, and very relatable.
This book has been on my radar since I read the blurb months and months ago. Signa is twenty years old and at this point in her life, just waiting until the day she can claim her inheritance and be done with all the “caretakers” in her life. They use her for her money and […]
After a night of magic turns deadly, Iris Gray vows to never let another person learn she’s a witch. It doesn’t matter that the Witches’ Council found her innocent or that her magic was once viewed as a marvel—that night on the lake changed everything.
Now settled in Washington, Iris hides who she really is and vents her frustrations by writing curses she never intends to cast. And while she loves working at the wildlife refuge she runs with her mother, she loathes Pike Alder, the witch-hating aspiring ornithologist who interns with them.
When Pike makes a particularly hurtful comment, Iris concocts a cruel torment for him. But just as she’s about to dispel it, an owl swoops down and steals the curse before flying far away from the refuge. The owl is a powerful amplifier, and if it dies, Iris’s dark spell will be unleashed not only on Pike, but on everyone in the region.
Forced to work together, Iris and Pike trek through the wilderness in search of the bird that could cost Pike his life. But Pike doesn’t know the truth, and as more dangers arise in the woods, Iris must decide how far she’s willing to go to keep her secrets safe.

Did I immediately pre-order a physical copy of this book once I finished it? Yes, I did. I have reviewed Rachel Lynn Solomon’s YA books, which you can find here too, and my reviews tend to follow the same direction when it comes to her books. Just the synopsis of See You Yesterday alone had me vehemently […]
This was easily one of the best books I’ve read so far this year. I read a good bit of YA fantasy, and it often starts to feel repetitive and regurgitated. When I first read this synopsis, I was intrigued by the twin drama…. but what really grabbed me was the comparison to The Princess […]
An Absolutely Heartbreakingly Beautiful Debut! Kristin Dwyer has set the bar high for teen love and longing. This was a book that I couldn’t put down! Dwyer weaves an element of mystery in with the classic contemporary romance, making it something of its own. With a beautiful prose you really get a sense of Ellis […]
Eerie And Utterly Devourable Read! When I first saw this book pitched as Crimson Peak meets The Secret Garden I really had no idea what to expect as I never really envisioned those two things intersecting. But Schwab really found a way to weave these two very different concepts into something both captivating and horrific. […]
