Fangirl was given to me by my friend Snipps, who you all may have had the pleasure of reading her latest review of Nimona and introduction on my blog. She absolutely adored the book and was absolutely convinced I would equally enjoy it. And dare I say she was correct.

Hi book dragons! I hope you all have had a wonderful summer. I took a bit of a hiatus the last few months due to some crazy life changes, including getting a dog!! I would like to introduce you all to my baby, Fable!!
I read this book several months ago (which was a bit behind the bandwagon even then) and had a rough review written and accidentally forgot to publish it! Oops! But finally I present to you all my book review of Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda!!!
In my previous post, The 4 Things I did to Break My Writer's Block, I mentioned that I reread books as part of getting out of my writing slump. Die for Me was one of the books I decided to try rereading. I first read this book around the beginning of high school and absolutely adored it. I was curious to see if my opinion of the book had changed over the years, or if I still thought it was amazing. When I first read this book, years ago, I would have given it 5 stars and a full on fangirl rant. After rereading it however, I found that it didn't exactly match with my memory.
I've mentioned my love of Colleen Houck's book series, Tiger's Curse, on my blog before (you can find the post here). I absolutely adored this series and I still reread the series to this day. I was practically ecstatic when I heard she came out with another series and rushed to get my hands on a library copy.

Wow. Just. Wow. I'm a little late to the game in picking up and reading this book and boy did I not know what I was missing! This is going to be a longer review than usual because I just have so much to say! Don't worry though, I'll include a quick summary at the end if you want to skip ahead to that instead!
Kingdom of Ash and Soot is the perfect blend of historical fiction, fantasy and a unique Cinderella retelling. I had some mixed feelings when reading this book, but overall I enjoyed it and am curious to read the next book in the series to see how Eleanora's story continues.
