Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas (REVIEW)

[ Edit (12/2020): This review was first published years ago. My thoughts on this series have changed since then. I still enjoy the series, but the problems in it can’t be ignored and must be discussed. I can’t reread it right now and completely rewrite this review (although I did adjust my star ratings to better reflect my thoughts on it now), but I think it’s important to point out the lack of diversity and harmful representation in this series as a whole. One day I will reread this and change this review to reflect all of these issues. Until then, I wanted to add this disclaimer. ]

Review in a Nutshell: Kingdom of Ash is a fantastic conclusion to a series that has taken over the YA community.

“Hers was not a story of darkness. This would not be the story. She would fold it into herself, this place, this fear, but it would not be the whole story. It would not be her story.”

My November 2018 TBR

nov tbr

Happy Halloween!!!! On this amazing day, I want to talk about what I’ll be reading next month because nothing is more terrifying than commitment.

I read 15 books last month, so I feel pretty proud. Admittedly, six were rereads, but I’ll explain more why I count those in my October Wrap Up.

I chose 4 books for November, and I’m almost done with one of them already! Let’s hope if I can keep up my reading streak this month! Since NaNoWriMo will be happening, I doubt it. Also, if you don’t know what NaNoWriMo is, or want to know my methods, make sure you follow my blog because I’ll be posting all during this hellish yet amazing month!
