November 2019 Blog Stats


November was a super slow month on my blog.  I expected it with the holidays.  December will be worse since I’ll likely have less posts up, so my goal is to make sure January starts a nice jump up again.  I should have more time to comment and blog hop by then.

Review of Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan (physical arc)


This is a book two, so there will be spoilers for book one in the synopsis and review.




Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan


In this mesmerizing sequel to the New York Times bestselling Girls of Paper and Fire, Lei and Wren have escaped their oppressive lives in the Hidden Palace, but soon learn that freedom comes with a terrible cost.

Lei, the naive country girl who became a royal courtesan, is now known as the Moonchosen, the commoner who managed to do what no one else could. But slaying the cruel Demon King wasn’t the end of the plan—it’s just the beginning. Now Lei and her warrior love Wren must travel the kingdom to gain support from the far-flung rebel clans. The journey is made even more treacherous thanks to a heavy bounty on Lei’s head, as well as insidious doubts that threaten to tear Lei and Wren apart from within.
