Disenchanted by Brianna Sugalski // Monsters, Banter and adventure through a dark forest

  GOODREADS // AMAZON // BOOK DEPOSITORY Breton princess at the peak of the French Renaissance, Lilac lives prisoner in her parents' castle after a wicked secret is revealed on the eve of her tenth birthday soirée. Years later, her coronation ceremony looms, and between the riotous townsfolk and scheming nobleman bent on snatching the throne, Lilac prepares for the worst... Until a mysterious letter arrives from The Witch of Lupine Grotto, detailing a curious offer to cure her darkness forever. Lilac begrudgingly trades her coronet for a cloak and ventures into the forest Brocéliande in pursuit of the impious enchantress at the edge of town. With only the protection of an inherited dagger—and unsolicited help of the sardonic stranger who inserts himself on her quest—she must traverse Brocèliande and return in time to claim her rightful position as sovereign monarch. This is the story of a cursed princess, A crestfallen killer, The town that wants them to burn, And the witch

Adios 2017 ! Hola 2018 !

I can't believe 2017 is almost over! I'm very very excited for 2018 ❤❤ I have a thing for beginnings :) I also love to look back on the ending and reminisce over all the amazing things of the past year. 2017 has been pretty awesome for both my personal life and my bookish life. So here I present to you my awesome year in books! 

Favorite Reads

Holy cow it was so hard narrowing down to just 15 books! I'd say the year has been pretty good for books. I discovered quite a few new authors and started quite a few new series. (Click on the book covers to go to my review.)

*I loved Godsgrave too but as I haven't reviewed it yet, I haven't added it to the list.

Favorite Ships

Basically these are ships I'd go down with in any ocean on this planet or any other!

🚢 Ari and Dante - They are both the biggest cinnamon rolls to ever cinnamon roll.
🚢 Alina and Nikolai - I don't care what you think but I say Nikolai was better suited for Alina than the Darkling or Mal. 
🚢 Yelena and Valek - Slow burn, beautifully built romance of the century.
