Hey bookstagram!!! I haven’t had a chance to finish this book yet, I’m reading The Adventures of Huck Finn right now for school. I appreciate it for what it is, but I don’t really enjoy it. I much prefer modern books with lots of magic✨🧝🏻‍♀️have you read this book?

On to something new and exciting- I STARTED A BOOK BLOG!!!! It’s fun writing about books on a website. It’s tethered to this bookstagram so it’s called The Bleu Library. I’m still working out some of the kinks on my page, but check it out!!! If you have any tips on how to manage it, please share! Link is in bio

My April book haul is on the blog, link in bio. 💕 I'm definitely accumulating less books per month than I was last year! I mean, still a fair few, but I'm noticing I at least read the books I haul fairly shortly after getting them. 😋

This was April's Janice Thompson book of the month! Didn't have cotton candy for the picture, so I channeled my inner Sunday School teacher. Ha!
This is book two in a trilogy and I'm so looking forward to reading the third book next month!

“If I wanted to, I could kill the three of them right now. I could set this field of yarrow on fire and let myself burn with it.”



Drawing on Viking history and lore, debut author Young crafts an exciting, at times heart-wrenching story centered around 17-year-old Eelyn, her Aska clan, and their centuries-old war with the Riki. Every five years, the clans meet at Aurvanger to fight because of a perceived disagreement between their respective gods, Sigr and Thora. Eelyn watched her brother, Iri, die in battle, and now she wants to avenge him. But when she is attacked by Fiske, a Riki warrior, Iri steps in to save his sister: Iri has not only survived, but he has joined the enemy. Determined to figure out why Iri abandoned her clan, Eelyn seeks Fiske out on the battlefield and is taken prisoner. Once in the Riki village, Eelyn realizes that perhaps the two clans aren’t so dissimilar and begins to question the war. Young’s often poetic writing (“The cliff jutting up from the water like a wall. Green moss climbing down it in long, bright strands”) forms a stark juxtaposition with her vivid descriptions of battle and bloodshed, creating a clear picture of the brutality of war.

“‘Your majesty, please reconsider,’ Lord Dudley pleaded. ‘Your position will be much stronger with your husband as king. The people will see it as a sign of strength–‘ She took a deep breath. ‘They need signs of my strength, not my reliance on the men around me.’”



Edward (long live the king) is the King of England. He’s also dying, which is inconvenient, as he’s only sixteen and he’d much rather be planning for his first kiss than considering who will inherit his crown…

Jane (reads too many books) is Edward’s cousin, and far more interested in books than romance. Unfortunately for Jane, Edward has arranged to marry her off to secure the line of succession. And there’s something a little odd about her intended…

Gifford (call him G) is a horse. That is, he’s an Eðian (eth-y-un, for the uninitiated). Every day at dawn he becomes a noble chestnut steed—but then he wakes at dusk with a mouthful of hay. It’s all very undignified.

The plot thickens as Edward, Jane, and G are drawn into a dangerous conspiracy. With the fate of the kingdom at stake, our heroes will have to engage in some conspiring of their own. But can they pull off their plan before it’s off with their heads?



“The Lady Janies” series by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows. Sequels: “The Plain Jane” and “Calamity Jane”.

“‘The two of us, we're the best kind of disaster. Apples and oranges. Well, more like apples and machetes.’”



The last thing Jamie Watson wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, a Connecticut prep school just an hour away from his estranged father. But that’s not the only complication: Sherringford is also home to Charlotte Holmes, the famous detective’s great-great-great-granddaughter, who has inherited not only Sherlock’s genius but also his volatile temperament. From everything Jamie has heard about Charlotte, it seems safer to admire her from afar.

From the moment they meet, there’s a tense energy between them, and they seem more destined to be rivals than anything else. But when a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances, ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance. Jamie and Charlotte are being framed for murder, and only Charlotte can clear their names. But danger is mounting and nowhere is safe—and the only people they can trust are each other.



“Charlotte Holmes” series by Brittany Cavallaro. Sequels: “The Last of August” and “The Case for Jamie”.

“When the fairy tales spoke of butterflies, I didn't anticipate it feeling more like hornets.”



Sixteen-year-old Sorina has spent most of her life within the smoldering borders of the Gomorrah Festival. Yet even among the many unusual members of the traveling circus-city, Sorina stands apart as the only illusion-worker born in hundreds of years. This rare talent allows her to create illusions that others can see, feel and touch, with personalities all their own. Her creations are her family, and together they make up the cast of the Festival’s Freak Show.

But no matter how lifelike they may seem, her illusions are still just that—illusions, and not truly real. Or so she always believed…until one of them is murdered.

Desperate to protect her family, Sorina must track down the culprit and determine how they killed a person who doesn’t actually exist. Her search for answers leads her to the self-proclaimed gossip-worker Luca, and their investigation sends them through a haze of political turmoil and forbidden romance, and into the most sinister corners of the Festival. But as the killer continues murdering Sorina’s illusions one by one, she must unravel the horrifying truth before all of her loved ones disappear.

Do you usually preorder books?? 🤔

I don’t really preorder too often but I have done it in the past! I think the last book I preordered was the 10th anniversary edition of City of Bones! Sometimes I feel like I’d rather just wait for the book to come out and then purchase it just in case - in case of what I have no idea! 😅 to be honest it’d probably be smarter to just preorder but 🤷🏻‍♂️

Two DNFs and a truly disturbing book club choice has me feeling like I haven’t read anything worth talking about in the past few weeks. BUT THEN THIS BOOK HAPPENED. I wasn’t sure at first, but @adamsilvera really made these characters come alive, and I’m absolutely flying through this novel. Enjoying the alternative world he created that doesn’t feel so far off at all. 😬
Have you read this one? What did you think?
