    ?He looks like a faerie lover stepped out of a ballad, the kind where no good comes to the girl who runs away with him.? If you guys ever want to see what my true heart?s desires are on paper, read this book. This book is a piece of heaven that was sent from above, this ...

    WHAT IS THIS BEAUTY. Someone please revive me because I am dead from the awesomeness of this book. If you want to read a masterpiece of character and story, look no further. The Cruel Prince showcases Holly Black at the top of her game: it is exquisitely dark and delightfully wicked...

    No matter how careful I am, eventually I'll make another misstep. I am weak. I am fragile. I am mortal. I hate that most of all. 4 1/2 stars. Over the course of this year, I've read both books that I've liked and books I've disliked. I've read books that I've loved and, it's fair t...

    I liked this a lot! I completely get why so many people didn't enjoy this and there are plenty of things certain characters do that are inexcusable. There were just so many other things about the book that I enjoyed! The plot itself was a wild time. One of the later chapters had me sta...

    3.5 stars / There were things I really liked about this book and other things that were misses for me. I definitely don't think this is the groundbreaking, earth shattering read that many are making it out to be, but I'm glad I read it and I think later books in the series will be stro...

    Well, despite marking this as "currently reading" (I put books there that I plan to read within the next week or two) I finally cracked this bad boy open today...and finished it in one three-hour siting. So, if that's not an indication of something being a seriously above average re...

    You know a story is good when, at night, before falling asleep, you eagerly replay the story in your mind, but this time with you as the main character living an exciting adventure full of intrigue, danger and romance. It?s one of my preferred ways of falling in the arms of Morph...

    So, where to begin. Hype as we know it, is quite futile. The buzz it ignites is amazing. They create this excitement within you that has your mind wandering to all of the possibilities and direction the book can go in. Because of the hype, I assumed I would enjoy this book. I'm q...

    It's gratifying that my first read in 2018 is a five-star read which, fingers crossed, clearly portends a robust book-tiful year. When a book opens with a double murder you wonder if the author did it for the shock value until that is, you realise this is actually a foreshadowing o...

    ?I have lied and I have betrayed and I have triumphed.? Um yes, I totally gave in to the hype and for once I am glad. After reading The Darkest Part of the Forest, I developed a sudden thirst for more faerie stories and more Holly Black. The Cruel Prince was like a gift from ...

    I want to begin with saying that what probably killed this book for me was the hype. I was literally expecting the feels I got when I read A Court of Mist and Fury or Strange the Dreamer. Instead, I would have gotten the feels like when I read A Daughter of Smoke and Bone or Caraval: I...

    "If I cannot be better than them, I will become so much worse." I see why people call Holly Black 'Queen of the Faeries'. Hoooly wow. What a delightfully dark, twisty novel. If you know anything about me, I'm all about the court politics & intrigue, villains & anti-h...

    If you hurt me, I wouldn't cry. I would hurt you back. Um, then why didn't you, Jude? I think I need to get it out of the way: YA fantasy is not suited for me anymore. I've made a quite very easy choice of letting go of the genre slowly. Although I'm no longer going to be ch...

    If I cannot be better than them, I will be so much worse. The Cruel Prince has just about what you'd expect from Black: court intrigue, an atmosphere of terror, vaguely dark romance, and a main character who is a terrible person. Plus some interesting dynamics and setup for an even ...

    Sorry folks, I don't get it. 2.5? Maybe... Unmemorable. Another YA fantasy with fairies and humans, clichs and cringe romance similar to all the other fantasy/dystopian books that have been coming out. I don't understand the hype because there was nothing I found good in here. ...
