I consider myself to be a pretty loyal fan of Victoria Schwab’s- so much so that I’ve been to three of her signings and all of my books are signed by her, including a copy of The Steel Prince comic. Watching her stories rise to meteoric success has been thrilling, because it means that so many more people can enjoy the worlds that I’ve discovered. One of her series that I hadn’t read yet though, was Villains, which consisted of two books. Vicious was published in 2013 and the sequel, Vengeful, was only just released late last year in September 2018. So, it was high time that I read them both in succession and I’m really glad that I was able to squeeze them into my 2018 reading schedule! Read on for a spoiler-free review of both books.
Ahhh, it does feel great to spend my nights snuggled up in bed with a good book! I’m so glad that I’ve found my groove and the best reading time for me during these hectic months. My most recent read was Girls of Paper and Fire, which I received from a monthly Fairyloot box. This was a book that I was insanely excited for because of its Malaysian influences. I had read many reviews that either praised the book for its representation of sexual violence or condemned it, and I saw this title making its rounds around the internet. What did I think?

Long time, no see, friends and followers! I started a new job recently and I haven’t had much time to read and write reviews. I was thrilled to finally realize just a couple of weeks ago that the best time for me to read is at night, around 7-9 PM when I’m in bed. Yep, I am an extremely early sleeper and it’s totally necessary since I find myself waking up really early now, either for work or to let the puppies out. Anyway, because of this realization, I was able to finally finish Empire of Sand, which I had started a month ago! Read on for my review of this lush tale of magic and the power of bonds between people.
