The Winter Solstice. In a week. I was still new enough to being High Lady that I had no idea what my formal role was to be. If we’d have a High Priestess do some odious ceremony, as lanthe had done the year before—A year. Gods, nearly a year since Rhys had called in his bargain, desperate to get me away from the poison of the Spring Court to save me from my despair. Had he been only a minute later, the Mother knew what would have happened. Where I’d now be. Snow swirled and eddied in the garden, catching in the brown fibres of the burlap covering the shrubs My mate who had worked so hard and so selflessly, all without hope that I would ever be with him We had both fought for that love, bled for it. Rhys had died for it.

The Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag

I was only tagged in the Mid Year Freak Out Book Tag recently, by Lauren at Wonderless Reviews and Jill at Rant and Rave About Books, but despite all the other tags I have in my queue I had to bump this one to the front. It makes sense to do a mid year tag in July, it wouldn’t make sense to do it in September/October after I’ve gotten through all the tags before it in my queue. It was hard to pick only one book for some of these, so I picked two runners up as well.

Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag

Thanks Lauren and Jill for tagging me in this one. I’ve seen loads of people taking part in this tag and I am so excited to get my change to showcase my favourites for the first half of this year.

This tag was created by Chami at ReadLikeWildFire and Ely at Ely Jayne. It’s where we look back at (and freak out over) the books we’ve read during the past six months.

The ‘I Messed Up’ Book Tag

I am going to be posting tags a little more regularly from now on. Don’t worry I’m not going to bombard everyone’s feed with a tag a day but I do need to start getting through my queue a little quicker than I have been.

And to start off it’s the ‘I Messed Up’ book tag.

I was tagged by Jess at The Mud and Stars Book Blog. Obviously everyone should check out Jess’s original post and her blog, and if you’re not following her already then what are you waiting for? Thank you so much for the tag Jess, I’m sorry it took me a while to get around to it but better late than never I guess.

Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.

With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas’s masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.

Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill—the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price…

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

The start of a sensational romantic fantasy trilogy by the bestselling author of the Throne of Glass series.
