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.

Star Rating: ★★★★★

“To the people who look at the stars and wish, Rhys.”
Rhys clinked his glass against mine. “To the stars who listen— and the dreams that are answered.”

TOP FIVE: BOOKS OVER 500 PAGES

TOP FIVE: BOOKS OVER 500 PAGES

Hello book lovers! In honour of Tome Topple, I wanted to revisit my favourite books that are over 500 pages for this weeks Top 5 Wednesday.

To be honest, I didn’t feel like a had a massive pool of books to choose from for this topic. I rarely find myself reading larger books because I’m a slower reader. However it seems to be a theme (particularly with some YA Fantasy series) that these books are just getting bigger and bigger with each instalment in a series. So I can’t always opt out!

The measurement I used when trying to decide what books would make the list went a little something like asking myself a very simple question… “would I put myself through this 500 something page book again?” Because if I’m being real, I find that long books are rarely very fun, especially when complex magic systems or worlds are involved. Which could be something of a phase for my reading at the moment.

However, the books that made this list are the exceptions to that. And if you’re wondering why, well it’s because most of them had really great romances in them. (What can I say I’m a simple gal, all it takes is a good romance!)

Now onto my favourite books over 500 pages!
