This was okay. I didn’t like the fact that she was bought for a million dollars for one night with this guy. I think I know what’s going to happen in the rest of the series but since this was only average I don’t know if I’ll continue with the series.
This wasn’t bad. I will say I liked the blindfold and the no name thing. The twist killed me. I honestly didn’t believe it at first.

30/11/20 ~ How has your November been?
Mine has been all over the place, there really has been a lot happening this month but I think I’m slowly getting it all under control. It’s little things like my favourite sandwich and my favourite author that keep my going some days 💕 (ft. My sailor moon sketches)
Ok, so no disrespect to Agatha and friends but like…did they ever think about the lives of the citizens who didn’t go to their elite school. The cause Rhian was trying to accomplish? That everyone deserved an equal chance at glory?
I mean, even though by being in an elite school they’ll obviously be getting more privileges, but in this society, it’s like you either go into the most elite school in the woods or you’re stuck cleaning the shoes of some noble snuck up for the rest of your days…
It makes me think if sophie and rhian could have made the woods a better place…

What the what?
Holy shit, this was phenomenal!
It was exactly what I wanted. Starting from the breathtaking cover (seriously look at that fucking cover! Hands down one of the best of 2020!), feminist YA fantasy storyline, LGBTQIA representation, badass pirates, adventure with a touch of action in the high seas and let’s not forget the well-considered controlled pacing romance between West and Fable that wasn’t rushed nor forced—It was damn near unputdownable!
Besides the epic adventure the author takes readers on, what I enjoyed the most was the authors writing. The author’s writing has improved drastically since ‘The Girl the Sea Gave Back’ and dare I say, the ‘Fable’ series is her best work yet. She was able to captivate me far more with the main characters than imaginable and what led the Marigold crew to cross paths, well paced plot, remarkable supporting characters whose backstories I hope is further explored in the 'Namesake’ including Fable’s parents Saint and Isolde, the strong friendships and broken families ties. And that cliffhanger though! Take notes authors because that’s how you get readers amped for the sequel.
I seriously can’t remember the last time I raved so wholeheartedly for a young adult fantasy novel. I thought for a second I was in a rut but hell to the naw! ‘Fable’ resurrected me from the slump grave and I’m sitting on the edge of my seat eager to get my hands on the next installment, ‘Namesake’ because it’s going to blow everything else out the water.
