    So after contemplating how I felt after reading this book, I think I have come to grasp what I feel about it. The writing was beautiful. I loved the Parable of the Land of Trees. I really really want to read a story just about that parable!!! The first half of the book was extremel...

    Two stars in my "dictionary" means that it was readable, not that I liked it. Because I didn't... FRC (...) The thing with book comparisons is that sometimes you are left wondering if they didn't get the wrong book... like when someone decided to say that the Star Touched Queen w...

    As soon as I saw the comparison to The Star Touched Queen and The Wrath and the Dawn, I was intrigued and had high expectations...sadly I was sort of disappointed. Amrita and Thala are decent enough MCs. For a Princess on the run and a previously enslaved Seer, I figured there woul...

    Check out more reviews @ Perspective of a Writer... Emperor Sikander has turned his sights on Shalingar, the country of his friend and decided he will wed the man's daughter. She is not certain she can accept that outcome but it does give her the opportunity to learn about her mothe...

    I ordered my first book box because The Library of Fates was included in it. Quarterly's YA box featured Aditi Khorana's latest, along with two other books of her choosing, a letter, notes in the novel, and even bookish goodies. I was so, so desperate to love this book--and I genuinely...

    This is one of those books that plants a seed of trailing, growing thoughts into your mind. It made me question how I view conflict in my life and how to better identify the moments in which something went wrong and how to correct the wrong. It's also a beautiful story with interconnec...

    This story has so much intellectual depth, which is exactly what I was expecting from Aditi after reading MIRROR IN THE SKY. Aditi begins writing her books by focusing in on the themes she wants to include in the story, and in THE LIBRARY OF FATES, we really get to explore the ideas of...

    The plot and concept of this book slayed my life. I loved the plot (and cover) of this book so much! The Library of Fates has such a stunning concept and I fell so in love with it. I also really loved the Indian culture that was incorporated into this book. It was really beautiful and ...

    Amrita is being forced into marriage with a much older monarch from a backward-thinking kingdom. She and her childhood love hatch a plot to run away together before the wedding, but Amrita?s destiny turns out to be a whole lot bigger than escaping into obscurity with a boy. Pro t...

    "It takes...a recognition that you'll never be the hero of the story" "So you choose to be the monster" Do you know the big D that I keep on having but I didn't like? It's the big DISAPPOINTMENT. This book has such a lovely cover that I cannot not read it. It already pulled me ...

    This review can be found on Happy Indulgence. Thank you Penguin for the review copy! With a lush, opulent world, breathtaking plot, and endearing heroine, The Library of Fates was a wonderful read. I think the mention of The Star-Touched Queen in the blurb is very apt for this on...

    A troubled kingdom--an inescapable fate--ancient mythology--that's basically everything I ever wanted in a book. Open LIBRARY OF FATES and be transported to the mythical, magical country of Shalingar, where mystical vetalas, troubled oracles, irreverent goddesses, and megalomani...

    2.5 The cover is absolutely lovely - I love the pink-to-purple ombre! Inside, The Library of Fates tells the story of a girl shaken from her everyday life; the entrance of a tyrant; reincarnation and a race to rescue her family and her kingdom. The incorporation of Indian mythology...

    I read an excerpt on NetGalley and it captivated me immediately, so I decided to read the book. I am a puddle of disappointment, to say the least. I was unbelievably bored and the opposite of invested in the characters' fates and the world. With the tale of the trees being chopped down...

    ?I didn?t know then what I know now: that everything - my father, this moment, every experience that molds and shapes us - is ephemeral, evaporating into the air before we have a chance to grasp onto it, before we can truly even understand what it means.? The Library of Fates...

    I?m so emotional right now. I didn?t expect to love this book the way I did. I expected to like it, sure, but not to fall head over heels in love with it. In this story, we follow Amrita, princess of Shalingar, betrothed to Sikandar, the despotic ruler of Macedon . . . the same ...

    The Library of Fates is a standalone fantasy book inspired by Indian and Macedonian history. It's set in the fantasy kingdom of Shalingar, whose princess Amrita is going to marry Emperor Sikander for political reasons - but even that may be too little to stop him from conquering her ki...

    The last 25% of this book deserves 5 stars on its own because that was amazing. I had expected the plot to be yet another variation of a princess who's betrothed to an evil guy, feels powerless to change her fate, and is in love with her childhood best friend. But then it ended up goin...

    THE LIBRARY OF FATES is the book I've wanted my whole life. A novel that Western society is excited about that is based on Indian mythology, with an Indian setting, and Indian characters - A.K.A. perfection. At first, I was thinking - this'll be a four star read, but as I went furth...
