Hello fellow bookworms!
Since the end of 2020 is fast approaching (thank goodness!) I figured I'd do a quick review of some of the books I've read in the past few weeks! I don't really have time to do full reviews of them like I would normally do, but I'd still like to share my thoughts! So without further ado, here are some mini reviews:
A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas
The novella set after the event of Sarah J. Maas's A Court of Wings and Ruin shows what the beloved characters are up to now, while also setting the stage for A Court of Silver Flames (publishing in 2021). I loved this book! It gave me all of the holiday vibes while also giving me some Court of Dreams content to hold me over until A Court of Silver Flames! And I need 37297339 more stories like this about them. I’M JUST OBSESSED WITH THESE CHARACTERS OKAY?!!!

Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall
When semi-famous Luc tries to clean up his public image, he enlists the help of clean-cut Oliver to help fake a relationship for the media that totally won't result in a real romance... This novel was incredibly funny. I genuinely smiled and laughed throughout the entire book and thought Luc’s POV was very entertaining. I would’ve liked some more plot lines tied up like Jon Fleming disappearing or how Oliver will deal with his family, but I really enjoyed this fake-dating romance. The little snarky commentary and sarcasm from Luc was really entertaining and I love almost all of the characters!

How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories by Holly Black
This book was a few short stories that offer insight into how Cardan became the person he is and where he is after the event of the Folk of the Air Series. While I enjoyed these little snippets and stories, it wasn’t quite what I was expecting. I was hoping for more personal stories and not just snapshots of small moments in Cardan’s life. I was also hoping for more Jude/Cardan content. But it was still a good read and if you loved the rest of the series then this novella is definitely worth reading!
