I’m here today to celebrate the most talented Holly Black’s new standalone book, The Darkest Part of the Forest! As the tagline of the book is Be careful what you wish for, I’m here to share with you my #bookishWISHES!


My first bookish wish is for a fairy tale retelling, update or a story inspired by my favourite fairy tale: The Princess and the Pea. I’m sure there have been a few, but nothing I’ve been aware of recently! Just think of all the possibilities, the tests you can set to prove someone’s a princess. There is a wealth of girl power and awesomeness waiting to be tapped there. If someone (pretty please, all you fabulous authors reading this) writes this, I will definitely be buying it! read more

I loved both Shadow and Bone and Siege and Storm so much and I can’t believe this amazing series will be over soon! That said, I can’t wait for more Alina, Darkling, Mal and especially more Sturmhond! read more
