55285911The elves come for two things: war and wives. In both cases, they come for death.

Three-thousand years ago, humans were hunted by powerful races with wild magic until the treaty was formed. Now, for centuries, the elves have taken a young woman from Luella’s village to be their Human Queen.

To be chosen is seen as a mark of death by the townsfolk. A mark nineteen-year-old Luella is grateful to have escaped as a girl. Instead, she’s dedicated her life to studying herbology and becoming the town’s only healer.

That is, until the Elf King unexpectedly arrives… for her.

FAVORITE QUOTES FROM THE BOOK

“Our work is what we do, not who we are.


“Love is choice,”


They don’t care. I’m just a tool to them to make their flowers bloom and fields fertile. I’m a walking bag of manure in their eyes.


“Because for all my life I was told I was waiting for just one woman. But if I spent my years sequestered and alone for nothing, then please let me know. I’d love to know what options I have.”


“You are a moody prince glorified with a thorny-looking, iron crown,”


“You will respect me!” Eldas shouts.“Be someone worthy of respecting first!” I slam the door behind me.


“Your Grace, Her Majesty and…Her Majesty’s wolf.”

MY THOUGHTS 

PLOT

If you have watched 17 again with Zac Efron then you already know the story. In my opinion, it’s even better than the movie. This drama had more “soul”, the acting was phenomenal and the soundtrack was amazing!

I’m trying bullet journaling…(again)

Hello, my darling! How are you? How’s November treating you? So…I’m trying bullet journaling, yes, it was a mess last time(here is a post about)…but I’m learning from my mistakes and I’m doing it again. Let’s see my spreads for the month.

Title Page

For the theme, I decided to go with Rain. I could go very patriotic for November(It’s Latvia’s independence day in November), but I’m not good at drawing so decided to go with something more…easy.

The Spread 

Decided on boxes for the weekly spreads with little clouds on them….Isn’t it cute?

I binge watched “While You Were Sleeping”- kdrama review

ABOUT THE DRAMA

The best parts of 'While You Were Sleeping' (as told by GIFs) | SBS PopAsiaA young woman with bad premonition dreams meets two people who suddenly develop the same ability.

Nam Hong Joo (Suzy) lives with her mother, Yoon Moon Sun (Hwang Young Hee), a widow who runs a small restaurant.

Since she was young, Hong Joo has had the ability to see bad events before they happen, but she is often unable to do anything about it.

One day, Jae Chan has a strange premonition dream about an accident involving Hong Joo and Lee Yoo Beom (Lee Sang Yeob), a ruthless attorney who used to be Jae Chan’s tutor. Jae Chan decides to interfere in the course of events and ends up saving the lives of Hong Joo and Han Woo Tak (Jung Hae In), a young police officer. When Jae Chan, Hong Joo and Woo Tak then start having dreams about one another, they realize that their lives are now somehow entwined.29 images about While You Were Sleeping on We Heart It | See more about while  you were sleeping, gif and kdrama

MY THOUGHTS 

PLOT

It’s a mystery/romance drama and to be honest I didn’t care about the romance at all. I liked the plot, this whole “future seeing” thing was amazing! The first 3 episodes were my favorites, so many twists, and turns. Lee Jong Suk did a great job in this drama ,I loved watching him. Loved the family dynamics and the parallel story lines.

THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN OUR MAIN COUPLE(S)?

Ahhhh…it was okay,it felt like Suzy tried too hard at times ,but that’s my only complaint. To be honest I reaaalllyyy didn’t care about the romance,the cases and mystery was something I was invested in.

What I read in October(Wrap up)

Photo by Annelies Geneyn on Unsplash

Hello!Hey,how are you?Hope this october was good for you. Last month I finally reached 1k followers on my bookstagram!!!!Very excited about it.What else is new- hmmm,I was trying some new french skincare and it totally ruined my skin(review coming soon,I promise). So my reading- overall it was a good month. Read 7 books,different genres .Some Arcs (thank you netgalley),some new books published in October. No 2 star reads like in September,so that’s good! Let’s talk about each book individually.

The BOOKS!

Adobe-Post-20201028-1530490-horz

  1. After All I’ve Done by Mina Hardy

I got this as an ARc and I loved it. My favorite book last month,it had eveything- mystery,family drama,posible murder. It’s a trilling story and I highly recommend it! I have a whole review you can read here.

2.Nice Werewolves Don’t Bite Vampires(Half-Moon Hollow #8)by Molly Harper

This was fun,light and super cute. I love Molly Hareper’s writing,and the plot is always interesting. Yes,it does talks about emotional abuse ,so just be aware of it.I didn’t give it higher rating because ..I don’t know,I didn’t feel in love with the romance…Overall would recommend.

3.Misfits(Royal Academy Rebels #1)by Jen Calonita

I don’t know why but I expected it to be YA,but it’s middle grade. It was okay,like a proper fairytale retelling. 3 stars .Cover is BEAUTIFUL!

4.She Died Famous by Kyle Rutkin 

Amazing!Beautiful and definitely a must read!!!! My full review you can find here.

5.The Duke Meets His Match by Karen Tuft

I got this as an Arc (you can read the full review here),and well it was okay. It’s marketed as a clean Christian romance,but to be honest there wasn’t a lot of metions of God or Christianity. Just the appropriate amount for the time period.

6.The Earl Not Taken(The Wallflowers of West Lane #1)by A.S. Fenichel

Fun fact..I was denied for an arc of this one ,now I’m kind of glad…because it wasn’t good. I have a whole review you can read here.

7.Crazy Stupid Bromance(Bromance Book Club #3)by Lyssa Kay Adams 

I love the Bromance Book club series!Such fun and cozy books to read…but this one wasn’t my favorite. Like don’t get me wrong,it was nice…just not my favorite. If you want full review tell me in the comments down below.
