    ONE DARK THRONE|| Kendare Blake

    This is the sequel to Three Dark Crowns and therefore cannot be read or reviewed in isolation. In this sequel, the real games begin. At the end of Three Dark Crowns we were left with a breathtaking cliff hanger and all sorts of questions unanswered. So, the sequel was a definite must. The triplets are still scrambling for the crown, and though we thought we had lost one, it turns out we thought wrong, and what is about to ensue is a twisted story of the need for family and the hunger for power. Blake adds dimensions to her world that we didn’t particularly expect. We finally also learn if…

    MAY||TBR

    This is my first ever TBR, however what makes it even more exciting is how it has plummeted me out of the worst reading slump of my existence. So you should see how rapidly I’m devouring the first book, in between everything I do it’s always with me and I’m so pysched to finish it. We are about 100 pages away from the end. I cannot wait to do a wrap up for you guys, but for now, here’s what I have lined up on the TBR list this month: Goodreads Synopsis: When kingdom come, there will be one. In every generation on the island of Fennbirn, a set of triplets…
