Book Review: “Darker: Fifty Shades Darker As Told By Christian” by E.L. James

Hi everyone!

I read this as an ebook.

Overview from GoodReads:

Their scorching, sensual affair ended in heartbreak and recrimination, but Christian Grey cannot get Anastasia Steele out of his mind, or his blood. Determined to win her back, he tries to suppress his darkest desires and his need for complete control, and to love Ana on her own terms. But the horrors of his childhood still haunt him, and Ana’s scheming boss, Jack Hyde, clearly wants her for himself. Can Christian’s confidant and therapist, Dr. Flynn, help him face down his demons? Or will the possessiveness of Elena, his seducer, and the deranged devotion of Leila, his former submissive, drag Christian down into the past? And if Christian does win Ana back, can a man so dark and damaged ever hope to keep her?

I first read the original trilogy back in 2016. Reading a spin-off a couple years later…….it was boring.

Book Review: “A Court of Wings and Ruin” by Sarah J. Maas

Hey all!

I read this book during the 6th Round of the TomeTopple Readathon.

Overview from GoodReads:

Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s manoeuvrings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit – and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well. As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords – and hunt for allies in unexpected places.

I don’t even know what to say….or write, in this case. So many emotions are flowing through me right now. Anger. Sadness. Frustration. Love. Peace. Just a mixture of emotions. This book hit me right in the feels. At one point, I actually threw the book. At more than one point, I cried. I, honestly, could not have found a better way to end my night.

Until my next post,

Stephanie
