I recently heard of it! I think I added it to my TBR. I’m pretty sure The Thirteenth Tale is on there, too.

Omg I love the beginning of Unrooted. You write so well and the atmosphere is so captivating. I wish you the best luck, Sarah. I’d love to read your series <3
Oh my goodness! I thought I had answered this ages ago! Thank you so much for the compliment, nonnie! I have a slower week this week so I hope to chip away at the beginning and try to write some more. ^_^
Hi, Sarah! Have you heard of House of Salt and Sorrows?
Yes!! I remember seeing the cover when it came out, and since it’s a retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses I’m 100% excited to read it!
Millie and Milo’s daily cat pictures warm my heart. I’m glad you have two wonderful friends with you :)
Oh, I’m so glad! They’re truly the lights of my life and I love sharing them with people! ❤
Don’t know if someone has already asked you that Sarah but what is your favorite YA book/series ?
This comes up from time to time, but the answer has remained pretty consistent! It’s the Girl of Fire and Thorns series by Rae Carson. 🙂
Ooh! Where’d you get your cat tree? I need a new one the boys have SHREDDED mine.
Oops, sorry it took so long to get to this! I have a couple of different cat trees. The cream-colored one in most of the pictures I found on Amazon here. There’s another I have that’s brown and I found it for a steep discount on Wayfair.com. My kitties love both of them!
Oh thank you so much for your recs ! I will try them as soon as I have time ! I’ve already said it but I really like your blog, I always check your month reading and recommendation and I’ve discovered a lot of interesting books through them !
You’re very welcome! Thank you so much for the nice note. It’s honestly so great to know that people are reading and enjoying the blog. ❤ Let me know what you think of these if you get a chance to read them!
Thank you for sharing your readings with us ! I love your blogI also read To Kill a Kingdom a few months ago but unfortunately I didn’t really like it; I found the writing a little dull and I couldn’t get into the characters. I wasn’t a big fan of the main relationship too I think I’m tired of all the banter/filrting and all these “Casanova attitude” when it comes to the hero ! I wish I can find one day a YA book where the main couple isn’t based on banters but I think I dream too much hahaha !
I’m glad you’re enjoying them! I’m sorry To Kill a Kingdom didn’t suit you, but I understand why! I did listen to it as an audiobook, and I think that greatly impacts my reading experience with some books. But I’m sure there are plenty of gentler YA romances out there! Here’s a list of ones I’ve reviewed that I think you might like, both fantasy and contemporary:
- Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda
- Let’s Talk About Love (technically NA)
- The Girl with the Red Balloon
- The Night Circus (not YA)
- Girls Made of Snow and Glass
- The Girl From Everywhere
- Girl Out of Water
- When Dimple Met Rishi
- Eliza and Her Monsters
I can’t think of any “Casanova” types in these romances, so if you haven’t tried them I think you’d like them!
Happy New Year, Sarah <3 I'm so happy FFFT and Rec Day are staying! Also looking forward to your retelling reviews!
Thank you!! I’m really excited for these things, too, especially the retelling reviews. I think it will be a fun way to merge my required academic work and my hobbies. I’m not totally sure yet, but I think the first one will be East by Edith Pattou for FFFT next month!
Just to warn you – Eye of the World is at times eerily reminding Lord of the Rings, but it’s from the second book and third when the good parts start :) TOTALLY WORTH IT
Oh hey this has been sitting in my inbox awhile! I must have missed it right before I went on vacation.
This is no problem, because I’ve never actually read LotR (scandal, I know)! So, I’ll see how I like Eye of the World and decide from there if I continue the series!
