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.

New Adult Recommendations

Hi guys! Long time no see? I know I'm so sorry but I've just been so busy with school lately, I completed my first ever IGCSE exam and I'm doing some more at the end of this year. But along with being busy with school I have also been in a slump. Again. I know whats wrong with me? I wish I knew. -__-. Basically though whenever I'm in a slump I tend to not read many YA novels and I lean more towards the NA genre, probably because they're easier to read, a little bit shorter and less time consuming. But since I've been reading a lot of NA recently I thought I would do a recommendation post on new adult books.

The Bookshelf Tag


I'm not sure who created this tag but I saw Cait from Paperfury do this a couple months back and I've been meaning to do it ever since.

I thought The Bookshelf tag was a great way of doing an almost bookshelf tour. I'm stupidly excited to do this for you as I've just finished putting up my new bookshelves with the help of my dad! My babies no longer have to sit on the floor! EEP, SO HAPPY. *flails*

It’s been five years since the events of City of Heavenly Fire that brought the Shadowhunters to the brink of oblivion. Emma Carstairs is no longer a child in mourning, but a young woman bent on discovering what killed her parents and avenging her losses.

Together with her parabatai Julian Blackthorn, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches across Los Angeles, from the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica. If only her heart didn’t lead her in treacherous directions…

Making things even more complicated, Julian’s brother Mark—who was captured by the faeries five years ago—has been returned as a bargaining chip. The faeries are desperate to find out who is murdering their kind—and they need the Shadowhunters’ help to do it. But time works differently in faerie, so Mark has barely aged and doesn’t recognize his family. Can he ever truly return to them? Will the faeries really allow it?
