Welcome, welcome to Caraval…all games must come to an end.

It’s been two months since the last Caraval concluded, two months since the Fates have been freed from an enchanted deck of cards, two months since Tella has seen Legend, and two months since Legend claimed the empire’s throne as his own. Now, Legend is preparing for his official coronation and Tella is determined to stop it. She believes her own mother, who still remains in an enchanted sleep, is the rightful heir to the throne.

Meanwhile, Scarlett has started a game of her own. She’s challenged Julian and her former fiancé, Count Nicolas d’Arcy, to a competition where the winner will receive her hand in marriage. Finaly, Scarlett feels as if she is in complete control over her life and future. She is unaware that her mother’s past has put her in the greatest danger of all.

Caraval is over, but perhaps the greatest game of all has begun―with lives, empires, and hearts all at stake. There are no spectators this time: only those who will win…and those who will lose everything.


If you know me, you’ll know that I absolutely love the Caraval series by Stephanie Garber and that it is actually one of my favourite series in the entire world. Because of that, Finale was one of my top three most anticipated reads of 2019 and I had high expectations going into it. It’s always a little scary going into a book that you have high expectations for because of the worry that it won’t live up to the hype or it won’t live up to the ideas you have in your headd but I was left feeling happy with the way that this series concluded.

Like both Caraval and Legendary, Finale was full of magic. I was expecting this book to feature a game that was more risky than the last and to be full of more adventure. I was not disappointed and it definitely met the expectations I had for it. It featured all the magic and adventure that I’ve loved ever since I first read Caraval back in 2017 and I just loved being back in this world with all the characters I’ve come to know and love.

Thoughts

Without spoiling too much, Finale is set in the same place as in Legendary and features much of the same characters from the previous book. It follows on from the events of Legendary fairly closely afterwards and of course, features another one of the famous games of Caraval. Although, as already mentioned, the stakes are higher in this book and the magic more prominent than ever before.

Unlike the previous two books, this book features two points of view, both of which we have read from already, those being Scarlett and Tella. I quite liked being able to go between the two and was happy that Stephanie had made the decision with this book to actually write it from both PoVs as opposed to just the one. I liked following both of the sisters as I think that in this book, they both have fairly unique PoVs. As well as seeing both Scarlett and Tella in this book, we also see a few other characters that are heavily featured in the previous two books which re both important to both Scarlett and Tella’s storylines.

The writing in this one was much the same as the previous two books. It was fast paced, magical and had me wanting to read and turn every page as fast as I could. I was completely engrossed in the story as the writing has a certain way of just pulling me into the story. I felt that the writing was quite descriptive, meaning that I was able to imagine things quite clearly in my mind – something that the map at the front of each book is also quite helpful in aiding. The writing definitely helps to make the plot more fast paced as it pulls you forwards through the story.

I really enjoyed the plot of this book. It felt a little different to the plot of the previous two books as it felt like there were more twists and turns and that there was also more complications to deal with and resolve throughout this book, however that kept it interesting. I felt quite invested in the story but also in characters as I already knew them. It was quite comforting to step into a world with characters that I already familiar with. Stephanie makes it she easy to just fall into the plots of her books.

This book does deal with quite a few differing themes including love, family, friendship, forgiveness and healing. All of these are explored in some detail throughout this book, particularly love and family.

Final Thoughts

Finale was such a good book and I’m so glad that my expectations of it were met. I thought that Finale was a great conclusion to this magical series. Although I definitely felt like I was left wanting more, I did also feel quite satisfied by this book. Although we won’t be getting any more books in this series, I’m looking forward to reading whatever Stephanie brings out next. If you’re looking for a magical and fast paced read, I’d absolutely recommend checking this out. If you need anymore encouragement, you can read my post on 5 reasons to read the Caraval series here.

Remember, it’s only a game…

Title: Truly, Devious | The Vanishing Stair

I am still relatively new to the YA mystery genre but I’ve been exploring the genre a bit more over the last year or so. One of the biggest things I’ve noticed over the last year (and please correct me if I’m wrong) is that there aren’t a whole lot of YA mystery books out there at the moment but there are definitely more coming out.

Truly, Devious is a YA mystery series that I had on my shelves for a little while but hadn’t picked up. If I’m totally honest, I didn’t really know very much about it but once I read the synopsis, I was very much wanting to read it. Before I’d even finished reading the first book, I’d got the second book, The Vanishing Stair, on order. Let me tell you, I enjoyed The Vanishing Stair more than Truly, Devious which I had quite liked.

With that, and the cover reveal of the third and last book in this trilogy, The Hand on the Wall, I wanted to do a little post featuring six reasons why you should pick up the books in this series.

1. As mentioned, The Hand on the Wall, which is the final book in the series had it’s cover revealed yesterday. It’s coming out in 2020 and so you should absolutely pick up the first two books in this series so you’re up to date and ready to complete this series once the third book has been released.

2. It’s a YA mystery set in a boarding school. Need I say more?

3. Ok, the blurb already mentions it so I don’t feel like it’s a spoiler but this series isn’t just a mystery series, it’s a murder mystery series. But just saying that doesn’t quite do it justice. It’s also a mystery based on a historic case that happened at the boarding school in the 1930s which is being investigated.

4. The characters are smart and interesting. Ok, yes, they do feel immature at times but then weren’t we all when we were their age? The characters are at a boarding school for some of the most intelligent kids and are given free reign over most things so that makes things quite interesting!

5. As with any mystery book, there’s twists and turns at every angle. I love trying to solve mysteries myself but with this one, we have an advantage as there are flashback scenes. I love the inclusion of the scenes from the original case as I feel like we have an advantage over our main character who is also trying to solve the case. However, despite the extra information we get, I don’t seem to be very good at trying to crack the mystery!

6. It’s fun! I know, a slightly funny thing to call a murder mystery fun but it’s true. It is quite a well thought out mystery story and it’s just even better that it’s a YA!

I’m really happy that I finally picked up this series earlier this year and whilst I understand mysteries aren’t for everyone, I hope that I’ve managed to convince you enough to give this series or at least the first book in the series, Truly, Devious, a try.

Tabby Brown is tired of trying to fit in. She doesn’t want to go to parties – in fact, she would much rather snuggle up on the sofa with her favourite book.

It’s like she hasn’t found her people …

Then Tabby joins a club that promises to celebrate books. What could go wrong? EVERYTHING – especially when making new friends brings out an AWKWARD BUZZING feeling all over her body.

But Olivia, Cassie, Henry and Ed have something that makes Tabby come back. Maybe it’s the Austen-themed fancy-dress parties, or Ed’s fluffy cat Mrs Simpkins, or could it be Henry himself …

Can Tabby let her weird out AND live THE BEST BOOKISH LIFE POSSIBLE?


I have been looking forward to reading Lucy’s book, The Paper & Hearts Society ever since I heard that she was writing it. I’ve been following the journey of her debut novel and it’s just been such a joy to watch it go from a document on her screen to a physical copy that can be held and read.

The Paper & Hearts Society is quite a heartwarming book and is so fast paced that I completely raced through it. I was excited to read it because it features books and reading so heavily which are obviously quite a big part of my life and it did not disappoint. I’m really happy that I picked it up as I really enjoyed it and now I want my to form my own Paper & Hearts Society.

Thoughts

The Paper & Hearts Society follows Tabby, our main character, after a move down to Dorset as she gets used to a new life in a relatively new place. Tabby moves in with her Gran and, because she is living in a new place, we follow her as she meets new people and settles into new surroundings.

I enjoyed the writing of this book. It was fairly simple which meant that I was able to fly through the pages. As mentioned already, the pacing of it was quite fast and that, along with the writing, was consistent throughout. The plot flowed really well from one chapter to the next and was easy to follow. The only thing that stood out to me is that I felt that this book was a little on the younger side but that also made it quite quick for me. I would say that The Paper & Hearts Society is perfect for any high school or college student. I wish that I’d had this book when I was younger and in my first few years of high school as I think that’s the type of age group that it really appeals too.

The plot follows Tabby as she joins a newly formed club of friends and fellow book nerds. I really enjoyed the plot as I felt like it made a point of making sure that reading is nothing to be ashamed of and that it made it cool.  What I found positive with this book was that it explores themes of mental health and the exploration of LGBTQ+ and identity. Because of these themes, I feel like the book is more relatable, especially for young people who are perhaps dealing with mental health themselves or are exploring their own identity. This book will help you feel like you’re not so alone and that other people do go through similar. This book also explores bullying in the present day climate where social media is involved. Again, I do feel like this book could encourage young people dealing with this to seek out help and hopefully prove that it is ok to talk about how you’re feeling.

I liked that the characters, Tabby, Olivia, Cassie, Henry and Ed are unapologetically bookish and that, though they might have differing opinions on books, they stick together and help each other whenever one of them is feeling less than their best. I think that this book really helps to promote positive friendships and how important and supportive a group of friends can be. My favourite character in this book was probably Ed, just because I found him quite funny but in all honesty, I enjoyed reading about all of them.

When I finished The Paper & Hearts Society, I felt happy and definitely ready to read the next book, Read with Pride. It made me feel happy reading this book because I was listening to characters talk about their own love of books. It was actually quite comforting to see others be passionate about books and the things they love, even if they are fictional characters themselves.

Final Thoughts

I really enjoyed Lucy’s debut novel and I’m really excited for everyone to read it now that it’s out in the world. I’m looking forward to seeing where the next book, Read with Pride, takes us. I’d absolutely recommend this book if you’re looking for a fun, quick read and I’d especially recommend it if you’re looking for a book to gift to someone who is in high school or college – or even to you if you’re either of those things!

Rating: ★★★★


Eighteen-year-old Gu Miyoung has a secret–she’s a gumiho, a nine-tailed fox who must devour the energy of men in order to survive. Because so few believe in the old tales anymore, and with so many evil men no one will miss, the modern city of Seoul is the perfect place to hide and hunt.

But after feeding one full moon, Miyoung crosses paths with Jihoon, a human boy, being attacked by a goblin deep in the forest. Against her better judgment, she violates the rules of survival to rescue the boy, losing her fox bead–her gumiho soul–in the process.

Jihoon knows Miyoung is more than just a beautiful girl–he saw her nine tails the night she saved his life. His grandmother used to tell him stories of the gumiho, of their power and the danger they pose to humans. He’s drawn to her anyway.

With murderous forces lurking in the background, Miyoung and Jihoon develop a tenuous friendship that blossoms into something more. But when a young shaman tries to reunite Miyoung with her bead, the consequences are disastrous . . . forcing Miyoung to choose between her immortal life and Jihoon’s.


Gumiho: Wicked Fox is about a girl who is also a fox with nine tails and is based on Korean mythology. When I read this, I thought it sounded so intriguing and I immediately wanted to read it. Not to mention that the cover is stunning.

I picked this one up because of my interest in it, but I became more eager to read it when I started reading the positive reviews of others and after seeing how much people were loving it. I didn’t really know what to expect when reading it other than hoping that I’d love it and I definitely did. I really enjoyed reading this one and would absolutely recommend it.

Thoughts

Gumiho: Wicked Fox is a quite a fun book but it’s also quite serious at times. As the blurb above says, Miyoung is a Gumiho who loses her bead and must find a way to get it back otherwise it could have drastic consequences. The plot was so fast paced and I definitely felt like I was left wanting to know what happens next whenever I put the book down.

I enjoyed the writing of this book. As mentioned, I thought it was fast paced and that the chapters were a perfect length. One of the things I really liked (and it’s something that I mention often with other books) is that the chapters weren’t too long. The longest chapter was probably Chapter 2 and then that was it for the remaining 400ish pages. The shorter chapters really contributed to the pace of this book. I also thought that the writing was descriptive but in a way that wasn’t too overdone. I felt that I could imagine most things quite well whilst reading this book.

Miyoung and Jihoon are our main characters that we follow throughout this book. Miyoung is afraid to get close to anybody and of disappointing her mother. She is quite naive at times but she is also smart. She is a character that just wants approval from her mother and to know what it’s like to be loved and have friendship. Jihoon is a positive character the majority of the time and is seen to be quite popular with everyone but really only has a few close friends. He is still dealing with the aftermath of being left to live with his Halmeoni, who he adores, when he was a child and that still affects him. What I liked about both of these characters is that while they do have flaws, but they are fiercely loyal. In this book, there’s a theme of family and friendship throughout which I really enjoyed. I loved the closeness of the Jihoon’s friends that they had almost formed a family unit themselves.

The world building didn’t need that much because of course, it’s based on the city of Seoul. I really liked the urban fantasy feel of the world that I thought this book really gave the vibes of and I just loved the inclusion of the Gumiho mythology throughout this book and how it linked it to the characters.

I really enjoyed reading Gumiho: Wicked Fox because it was unlike anything I’d read before and I loved that about it. I also enjoyed reading it because of the setting and the interesting mythology. There was a lot of food mentioned that I did google because 1. I wanted to make sure I was pronouncing things correctly and 2. I wanted to see the delicious food that was mentioned and oh my, I wasn’t disappointed. I feel like I immediately need to go and try everything. I found it so interesting to learn and read about a culture different to my own and it has definitely encouraged me to read even more books about cultures that are different to my own.

Final Thoughts

Gumiho: Wicked Fox is an intriguing book that I am really glad that I read because I did enjoy it so much. I would absolutely recommend it to anybody who is looking for a fast paced read that really draws you in. The characters are just like you and I with both their positives and negatives.

You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.

The first lesson is to make yourself strong.

After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.

When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.


This review is a little bit late as I read The Wicked King almost immediately after it came out in January. If I’m honest, I’ve struggled to write this review because I really enjoyed it and I couldn’t really say much else other than ‘I LOVED IT’ for a good while.

I really enjoyed The Cruel Prince, which I reviewed here, and so I just had to read The Wicked King straight away because I really couldn’t wait. The Wicked King is full of more scheming, more angst and of course, more faeries.

When I read, I’m usually quite aware of how long I have left in a book as getting closer to the end of a book gives me an extra kick to get a book finished but with The Wicked King, I came to the last page without even realising. I enjoyed it so much and my only real issue was that it wasn’t longer.

Thoughts

Just like in The Cruel Prince, The Wicked King follows our main character Jude after the events of the first book. I was interested to see where the plot of this book and the characters would go too seeing as The Cruel Prince ended on a cliffhanger and it definitely did not disappoint.

The characters are much of the same we saw in The Cruel Prince so in this book, it was more a case of how the individual characters would deal with the events that transpired in the first book and how that would enable their characters to develop.

The two main characters in this book are Jude, with the book being told from her POV just like in The Cruel Prince, and Cardan. I enjoyed following Jude in this book more than the first one which I think is because we had already got to know her character before so I knew what to expect from her. I enjoyed getting to know Cardan more in this book as things were touched on in The Cruel Prince but I feel like we really got to know him more in The Wicked King. I would say that Cardan is a difficult character to judge and whilst he is cruel, he is also using that as a barrier to almost protect himself.The Wicked King by Holly Black, which has a cover with a gold crown being dropped into blue water, is placed on top of The Cruel Prince by Holly Black, which has a white cover with gold branches on it. Both are placed on top of an open book with two themed bookmarks and a special The Cruel Prince themed badge next to the books.

The pace of this book is so fast that I barely even realised how quickly I was actually reading it. As I mentioned above, I ended up getting to the last page without even realising how close I was too it. The Wicked King really did suck me into it’s pages and basically spat me back out in shock. I thought the writing was great and that the length of the chapters was perfect and that they contributed to making this book such a fast read.

The ending of this book….THE ENDING OF THIS BOOK. I’m not going to say anything about it except it ended on such a cliffhanger and I won’t even lie, I was flicking through the acknowledgement pages almost manically and internally saying to myself ‘there has to be more??’. I was mostly just in a moment of shock when I finished it following the events in the last few pages and just didn’t really know what to do. I am fully invested in this series now and must know what happens next immediately!

It might be worth noting that between reading The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King, I actually read the novella titled The Lost Sister that is from Taryn’s POV. I don’t think this necessarily contributed to my overall reading experience of the second book but it did give me a little more insight into Taryn’s character. It’s not essential to the reading of this series but if you’re as obsessed with this series as I am, then it’s worth a read plus it’s short!

Final Thoughts

After reading The Wicked King, I absolutely need the third book, The Queen of Nothing SO. BADLY. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and liked getting to know the characters better. Holly has done such a great job with the books in this series so far and both times, I have been left wanting more but The Wicked King really has me feeling that way after that ending. I actually went back and read the last 3/4 pages about 6 times because I just needed to process the end of it.

Just in case you missed the news – The Queen of Nothing will now be publishing in November 2019 instead of January 2020!

Branches and stones, daggers and bones,
They locked the Beast away.

After the death of her sister, seventeen-year-old Violet Saunders finds herself dragged to Four Paths, New York. Violet may be a newcomer, but she soon learns her mother isn’t: They belong to one of the revered founding families of the town, where stone bells hang above every doorway and danger lurks in the depths of the woods.

Justin Hawthorne’s bloodline has protected Four Paths for generations from the Gray—a lifeless dimension that imprisons a brutal monster. After Justin fails to inherit his family’s powers, his mother is determined to keep this humiliation a secret. But Justin can’t let go of the future he was promised and the town he swore to protect.

Ever since Harper Carlisle lost her hand to an accident that left her stranded in the Gray for days, she has vowed revenge on the person who abandoned her: Justin Hawthorne. There are ripples of dissent in Four Paths, and Harper seizes an opportunity to take down the Hawthornes and change her destiny-to what extent, even she doesn’t yet know.

The Gray is growing stronger every day, and its victims are piling up. When Violet accidentally unleashes the monster, all three must band together with the other Founders to unearth the dark truths behind their families’ abilities—before the Gray devours them all.


The Devouring Gray is a paranormal novel that follows four teens in a small town called Four Paths. The Beast is a dark legend in Four Paths and is starting to gain power, and fast. Mysterious things are happening in Four Paths and Violet, Harper, Isaac and Justin must figure out what is causing it.

I’ve been trying to write this review for a little while now and I’ve found that I’ve struggled with it. Why? I hear you ask. Well, it’s because I thought this book was just an ok read for me. I wasn’t blown away with it but I also didn’t not like it. I almost feel a little bit indifferent to it.

Thoughts

The Devouring Gray is a book that I was expecting to devour but that didn’t quite happen. As mentioned above, I felt that it was just an ok book. I did like reading it but that was it. The concept reminded me a little of The Raven Boys and Stranger Things, which I’m fairly sure it was compared to. Usually when books say ‘for fans of’, I don’t know how much to believe them but I can confirm that this one is definitely for fans of both of those things.

This book mainly follows the character of Violet who moves to Four Paths following the death of her older sister. Upon moving, she discovers the mysteries of Four Paths and that she comes from one of the four founding families.

The plot was quite easy to follow and whilst I wasn’t immediately gripped by it, I definitely did want to continue reading. I was intrigued by the monster in the Gray and the paranormal aspect of it. The Gray definitely reminded of the Upside Down in Stranger Things. It was definitely full of paranormal elements as well as superstition.

I think out of the four main characters, my favourite was probably Harper, closely followed by Isaac and Violet who I’d put at joint second. All of the characters are fighting their own battles within, as well as trying to protect Four Paths. These characters had flaws which is something I really liked about them because in this book, there is no ‘this person is our hero’. The characters are vulnerable but they’re also strong. I liked that Christine made her characters in that way so that they were more relatable.

I wasn’t a fan of any of the parents in this story. I found them frustrating and that they didn’t listen or value any of their children. Of course, that leads to scheming which was fairly vital to this story, but I thought it was worth mentioning that the parents in this book are fairly annoying. Other than the parents of the main characters and the main characters themselves, I didn’t really feel like there was much interaction with any other characters in this book. That’s not necessarily a bad thing but then the characters felt very contained within themselves and their group.

I liked Christine’s writing and felt that it suited the book quite well although I did think that the pacing of it was a little bit on the slow side. Although, it started to really pick up in the last 110 pages as things started to fall into place. I definitely think that those last 110 pages saved this book and made it more of a 3.5 star read for me rather than just a 3 star read.

Final Thoughts

I liked The Devouring Gray but after a month, I just feel a little indifferent to it. It was in no way bad as I did like it and the last 100 pages were a lot more fast paced but I just liked it. I didn’t love it and I definitely didn’t hate it, I just feel pretty ok about it. I feel guilty for writing such a short review, but I felt like there wasn’t that much for me to actually say about this book.

5 Reasons to Read the Caraval series

5 Reasons to Read the Caraval series

It’s absolutely no secret that the Caraval series by Stephanie Garber is one of my favourites to exist. I had been eagerly anticipating Caraval ever since I saw it being handed out at BEA 2016 (via twitter, of course I didn’t go). I waited patiently but when it arrived in the January 2017 Fairyloot, I basically devoured it and LOVED it, just as predicted. I was extremely lucky to receive an ARC of Legendary thanks to the team at Hodder and basically gulped it down. It was lovely to dive back into the series and be with all of the characters again. That’s just one of the many reasons I’m looking forward to reading Finale, despite it being the end.

To celebrate the release of the final book in the series, Finale, I decided that I would present to you 5 reasons to read the series in the hopes it’ll either give you the nudge to start these books or push you to read the next book in the series.

1. The Characters – The characters are one of the biggest draws for me to this series. I think every character is unique in this story and because of that, I find it difficult to pick a favourite character because I have different reasons for why I like them! I think the main characters, Scarlett and Tella are fairly realistic. They’re vulnerable and they do make mistakes but I like that about them.

2. The Magic – Of course, these books would have to feature magic because Caraval is magical! One of the first things I fell in love with when I read this series was the magic. It’s quite significant to these books as it’s always there. Caraval is surrounded by magic and I just love seeing it come to life in these books.

3. The Settings – I love the magical settings in these books as I think they really make the book come to life. All three books include a map which is so helpful as you can follow the characters and because it helps to imagine the settings more vividly. Caraval and Legendary are both set somewhere different but the game element of Caraval is key in both. I think the settings are part of what makes these books so magical.

4. The Mystery and Intrigue – The whole game of Caraval is a mystery up until the end. That’s what’s so intriguing about these books because you want to find out how the game will end. The magic and illusions of Caraval help to make this book so mysterious but you shouldn’t get too caught up in it, otherwise you may lose your head!

5. The Series is Over – While it does pain me to say that the series is over, it does mean that you now have the perfect reason to read them because all of the books are released. You know what that calls for? A READING MARATHONNNN!

Bonus reason: Not only is Stephanie a wonderful author but she’s also such a lovely person and she really deserves the support of the book community!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post. If you think of any extra reasons for why people should read this wonderful series, please leave them in the comments to encourage others to embark on the journey of Caraval!

Remember…it’s only a game.
