She is the most powerful Jinni of all. He is a boy from the streets. Their love will shake the world…

When Aladdin discovers Zahra’s jinni lamp, Zahra is thrust back into a world she hasn’t seen in hundreds of years — a world where magic is forbidden and Zahra’s very existence is illegal. She must disguise herself to stay alive, using ancient shape-shifting magic, until her new master has selected his three wishes.

But when the King of the Jinn offers Zahra a chance to be free of her lamp forever, she seizes the opportunity—only to discover she is falling in love with Aladdin. When saving herself means betraying him, Zahra must decide once and for all: is winning her freedom worth losing her heart?

As time unravels and her enemies close in, Zahra finds herself suspended between danger and desire in this dazzling retelling of Arabian Nights from acclaimed author Jessica Khoury.

This book doesn’t blow me away like The Wrath and The Dawn, but it still has some elements that I really enjoyed. For starters, TWATD is an Arabian Nights retelling, while The Forbidden Wish is a retelling of the well-known tale of Aladdin. If you don’t know Aladdin, it’s the Disney movie with The Whole New World song and the blue Genie. The author twists the story into something familiar, yet entirely her own. And while TWATD pays more attention to the cultural backdrop, The Forbidden Wish pays more attention to the mythology. The jinn realm, power, old kingdoms. It’s like listening to your own folktale.

“I know so little about you and it eats at me night and day. Who are you? Why do you infect my mind?”

This book is heavily about romance. I think we all know from the synopsis is about forbidden love between a human and a jinn. It’s like the main goal of this book. But the best thing is, it’s not insta love! It took them a while to fall for each other, with lots of denial, incoming war and political intrigue. It makes me enjoyed and ship them even more!

“Time has a different meaning for me, and these events that seem so monumental in the moment will one day be nothing more than a line in a scroll. These humans are but letters to be inked into history. A hundred years from now, I will be free. I will have forgotten their names and faces, and the struggles they have will not matter. Time has a way of burying things, shifting like the desert and swallowing entire civilizations, erasing them from map and memory. Always, in the end, everything returns to dust.”

The writing style is gorgeous. The author describes everything in lavish details; the palace, the city, the world, the gylphs, the myth, you mentioned it. It’s just so beautiful and poetic, but it’s not purple prose.
I love the friendship between Zahra and Roshana, how it eventually became both of their downfall. It’s just so magical and intricate and amazing to see how Zahra still yearns for her after thousand of years! It’s just so tragic and heartfelt how eventually they’re both destroyed.
The characters. GUYS. This book is full of strong, independent women. None of them are fighting for the male attention. Zahra is fierce and determined to get her freedom and to not repeat her mistakes. Caspida embodies Princess Jasmine; she won’t bow to the tradition and fights the evil vizier. And she and her handmaidens formed a group of female assasins! How cool is that???
Overall, I really really enjoyed it! The writing style is just so amazing, and it fulls of female character. But the plot could be a bit dragged, especially the whole “I-love-you, but-we-can’t-be-together-it’s forbidden”. And I feel like it’s lacking something to make this even more enjoyable. It’s still a really good book though if you love The Wrath and The Dawn.

The Chocolate Book Tag

Happy Easter guys! In honour of the Easter celebration, I looked up some easter-themed tag and found this one. It sounds so delicious, and Easter is kind of associated with chocolate. This tag was made by Well Done Books. I’m so sorry for the lack of pictures, I’ve been so busy with exams, and this is such a last minute post. I hope you guys could still enjoy it though 🙂
I have a confession to make though: I don’t really like chocolate. I know, it’s weird right? But really, eating too much chocolate make me sick sometimes. I just don’t like sweets in general…
Dark Chocolate: A book with dark theme/content
Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. There are a lot of dark themed books lately, with suicide and depression and all. But for those of you who doesn’t know what this book is about, it’s about incest. And the whole book is just so angsty and depressing and that ending kills me. Even though it wasn’t my favorite, I still think it’s one of the darkest books I’ve ever read.
White Chocolate: A light-hearted read
Contemporary are usually very light-hearted and easy to read, and I love curling up reading those books. For this one I’ll choose Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. The story is so adorable and cute, and the characters are flawed, no matter how perfect they seem. Plus, it sets in Paris! I know some aspects of the book really turn people off, but people makes mistakes, and I think that’s what makes me like the book even more.
Milk Chocolate: A hyped/popular book you really want to read
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stievfater. I have the e-book version but life always gets in the way. Please just let me read this book in peace for just once! I heard so many amazing things about this book, especially about the relationships between the characters. I always imagined it as the relationship between Lily and The Marauders, but we’ll see if my thought is right!
Chocolate with a Caramel Center: A book that make you feel gooey on the inside
The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. The bromance between Jem and Will is goals and it gives me so much feels. I can’t. It really warms my heart how much they love each other, and how they’re each other’s soulmate, not Tessa. I fell in love from the first chapter and I never got my heart back.
A Wafer Free Kit-Kat: A book that surprises you

Sherlock Holmes series by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. My love for Sherlock started because of this manga Meitantei Conan, where the main character is an avid fan of Sherlock. And then there are the movies starring Robert Downey Jr, and I fell in love even more. Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law really bring out the character and I really loved it. And then came the tv show, the BBC Sherlock that has ruined many lives ever since, myself included. But I never read any of the books, until last year. I didn’t think I would like it, but turns out I loved it. Sherlock is BBC Sherlock. Sherlock is Benedict Cumberbatch. Sherlock is Robert Downey Jr. He’s the exact same character, and it’s just felt so familiar yet entirely new. I can’t wait to read more books from this series.
A Snickers Bar: A book you’re going nuts about
The Rose and The Dagger by Renee Adieh. COME ON GUYS. I need to know what happened next after that ending in The Wrath and The Dawn. I am so ready to jump back in to the rich, middle eastern world created by Renee Adieh.
Hot Chocolate with Whipped Cream and Marshmallow: A comfort read that you turn into again and again
Hmm… I don’t really re-read books, so I don’t think I have any. Except for comics. There’s this on-going manga I really like, Kocchi Muite! Mikko. It’s just so cute and adorable, and it’s one of my favorite series going up, and it’s still one of my favorite manga ever. I just love it so so much, and it always managed to cheer me up 😀

A Box of Chocolates: A series that many readers would like 
There are so many hyped up series lately. In fact, I think there are too many. But I honestly think the most hyped up series lately is The Dark Artifices. With Lady Midnight just being released recently, everyone is reading it, and believe it or not, loving it. I don’t know, everyone seems to love it. I haven’t seen any negative reviews, which is amazing. So yeah, I definitely think this series is going to be amazing. And if you have been loving the shadowhunters series, then this book is definitely for you.
 

The Intergalactic Book Tag

Hi guys! I saw this tag a while back at Cloe’s blog, Mornings and Epilogues, and I just want to do it. I mean, who doesn’t love stars and moons and space? Who doesn’t want to stargazing and watch meteor showers?? I’m just in the mood for this tag, so let’s get to it!

SPACE
Name a book that is out of this world – which takes place in a world different from our own.

Can I use the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo? They don’t take place in our world, and I love the Russian aspects in Ravka.

BLACKHOLE
Name a book that completely sucked you in.

 

I’ve read some books that completely amazing, but the lastest one is My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga. The characters and the writing style is just perfect. The title also really fitting for this category, right? 

LIGHT SPEED
Name a book you are anticipating so much you wish you could travel at light speed to get it.

Summer Days and Summer Nights by Stephanie Perkins! I really liked her christmas anthology, so I’m really excited for this book!

NEBULA
Name a book with a beautiful cover.

You guys know how much I love book covers, and there are so many books with amazing covers! I even have my own goodreads shelf for it 😄 Buttt, I think the most beautiful cover I owned is The Shatter Me Trilogy by Tahereh Mafi. THEY’RE SUPER GORGEOUS!

MULTIVERSE
Name a companion set or spinoff series you love.

The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. If you have been following me for sometime, you’ll know how much I love this series. TID is the prequel of TMI, and I love it even more than TMI!
 

GRAVITY
Name your favourite romance pairing that seems to have a gravitational pull to each other.

 It’s just… They seem to always find a way back to each other, even surpassing death<3

 

THE BIG BANG
Name a book that got you started on reading.

 

This book! It has such a special place in my heart. This book, and this series generally is what got me started on reading. Eventually I started reaching for thicker books, and even classics! I can’t find the next books though, but I really really looking forward to continue this series once I find it.
  

ASTEROID
Name a short story or novella you love.

The Too Clever Fox by Leigh Bardugo. This is my favorite novella from the Grisha verse, because it reminds me of Nikolai.

GALAXY
Name a book with multiple POVs.

Lately there have been so many books with multiple POVs, but the most recent one that I love is Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I just wish for some Wylan povs in the next book though.

SPACE SHIP
Name a book title that would be a great name for a spaceship.

I’d say Morning Star by Pierce Brown. I haven’t read this series, so I don’t know what the title means, but I just love the name. But it probably isn’t a good name for spaceship, because as far as I know, Morning Star usually means Lucifer and as we all know he fell from heaven (sky) so…

IT’S TIME.

Hi guys! I just want to write a quick post about something. 
As you guys know, this is my final year at school, and therefore I would have my finals this year. 
Or more exactly this month.
Oh wait. IT’S THIS WEEK. 
Really guys, by the time this post comes up, I’ll be having my finals. Since I’m currently having my final exams, and in the beginning of April I’m going to have my national exams, I have decided to take the time off from blogging. I already scheduled some posts, but I won’t be able to reply to comments or anything. I would be off until 2nd week of April.
That’s all I guess. I hope you guys understand and wish me luck! *fingers crossed*

Book Review: The Wrath and The Dawn by Renee Adieh

The Wrath and The Dawn
by Renee Adieh
E-book edition, 278 pages
Published in 2015, by G.P Putnam’s Son
✰✰✰✰✰


In a land ruled by a murderous boy-king, each dawn brings heartache to a new family. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, is a monster. Each night he takes a new bride only to have a silk cord wrapped around her throat every morning. When sixteen-year-old Shahrzad’s dearest friend falls victim to Khalid, Shahrzad vows vengeance and volunteers to be his next bride. Shahrzad is determined not only to stay alive, but to end the caliph’s reign of terror once and for all.

Night after night, Shahrzad beguiles Khalid, weaving stories that enchant, ensuring her survival, though she knows each dawn could be her last. But something she never expected begins to happen: Khalid is nothing like what she’d imagined him to be. This monster is a boy with a tormented heart. Incredibly, Shahrzad finds herself falling in love. How is this possible? It’s an unforgivable betrayal. Still, Shahrzad has come to understand all is not as it seems in this palace of marble and stone. She resolves to uncover whatever secrets lurk and, despite her love, be ready to take Khalid’s life as retribution for the many lives he’s stolen. Can their love survive this world of stories and secrets?

Inspired by A Thousand and One Nights, The Wrath and the Dawn is a sumptuous and enthralling read from beginning to end.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/28571035-the-wrath-and-the-dawn


Let me start by saying I SHOULD’VE READ THIS BOOK EARLIER. What was I thinking keep putting this book off for so long??? This book is so freaking fantastic.
The setting is just perfect. I keep thinking about Persian/Arabic culture when I read this. The way it was described was so vivid and detailed it was easy to imagined that I was in palace with Shahrzad. The palace, the jewels and the clothes are just so beautiful and intricated. And the food omg. I love Arabic food, and this book makes me craving for them!

“She will be your undoing.”

I love Shahrzad. Even though she doesn’t feel like 16, I love main characters like her. Instead of being the chosen one or the special snowflake, she chose to do the fight. She makes her own choices, try to keep fighting, and always plan her next move. She knows what to do instead of having the whole hero thing shoved at her. I just wish the romance is having more slower pace. It feels almost insta-love, but since they actually take such a long time to trust each other, I suppose it was pretty slow. I don’t know… I just wish it was slower. After only 2 nights, Khalid saved her and that’s make him not-so-cruel in my eyes…


And then we have Tariq. I don’t hate him, I really don’t. He always tries his best to save Shahrzad. But here’s the thing: when a girl says no, she means no. I don’t know why authors keep creating love interest that thinks he knows the best for her. If she doesn’t want to be kissed, then don’t kiss her. In Shahrzad case: If she doesn’t want to be saved, she means she doesn’t need a savior. She has everything under control, she could do it. That’s my biggest problem with Tariq. He’s the typical “nope come with me he’s a monster how could you love him”. I know he means well, and he also know Shahrzad has everything under control, and yet he still dragged her away. Jalal was right. The girl should’ve have a say in the matter whether she wanted to be saved or not.

I wish we could explore more of the side characters. I’d like to know more of Jalal, Despina, General Al-Khoury and Rahim. Jalal seems like a nice, aloof kind of guy, but I don’t know why I didn’t ship him with Despina? Despina is such a strong and fierce girl, and I hate to read another case of “warrior turned damsel in distress”, especially not Despina. I just wanted to know more backstory of General Al-Khoury and Rahim. Who they family are, how could they become so respected and so on.

“What are you doing to me, you plague of a girl?” he whispered.
“If I’m a plague, then you should keep your distance, unless you plan on being destroyed.” The weapons still in her grasp, she shoved against his chest.
“No.” His hands dropped to her waist. “Destroy me.”


I can’t believe it took me so long to read this book! It’s just so amazing and feels magical and surreal. I’m really excited to read The Rose and The Dagger, to meet again with Khalid, Shahrzad, Jalal, the world, the food, the magic, literally EVERYTHING. If you haven’t read this, than I recommend you to read this book like NOW.

“There is no one I would rather see the sunrise with than you.”

And there’s no book I would rather read till sunrise other than this book!

Bookish Siblings Tag

Hi guys! So last month I was tagged by Erika @ Books, Stars, and The Pages in Between and I just managed to post this now! I have one sister and she’s pretty much my best friend and worse enemy. We fight a lot, but we also have so much fun together. I guess that’s just how sisters roll 😉
If having real-life siblings is so much fun, imagine having your favorite fictional characters as your siblings! I’m really excited for this so let’s jump right in!
Rules:
1. Answer all the questions. Repetition is fine.
2. You can put yourself in any of the categories.
3. Tag others!
4. Fill in the categories with bookish characters! The characters don’t have to be sibling-esque. If you don’t know, for example, you can say “A character that *insert description* I can’t stand is ____”

Your Older Brother

Damon Salvatore from The Vampire Diaries. He’s acting like he doesn’t care, so I could do anything I like, but mess with me and he would bite your heads off! He’s just soooo protective with his loved ones! I really should get back to watching TVD.


Your Younger Brother

Nico di Angelo. I’d love to have him as my younger brother. He’s just so complex and unpredictabe. And having a younger brother that could call an army of the dead? That’s so cool!
Your Sister

Bianca di Angelo obviously. Or maybe Zoe Nightshade? Oh wait…
Nah kidding. But I’d love them as my sisters though.
The Popular One

Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices. No one could resist the Herondales charm. And he’s smart. And funny. And a fighter. He’s a complete package.
Parents’ Favourite

Harper Price form Rebel Belle. She’s also a complete package. Valedictorian, head of student council, she’s pretty, she’s polite, she joined the cotillion. She’s all parents dream daughter.

The Little Rebel

Nikolai Lantsov from The Grisha series. He’s not exactly little, but he’s definitely a rebel.

Your Twin

I would say Isabelle Lightwood. I’m not as badass as her, but I think it’s going to be interesting to have her as my twin sister and just have fun with boys and shopping and hunting demons! p.s why can’t we have alexandra daddario as Izzy in the tv show? i don’t hate emeraude, but it would be fun to watch the interactions between daddario siblings!

The One You Can’t Stand

Clary Fray from The Mortal Instruments. She’s just too whiny and bratty and would risk literally everything for Jace. Jace this, Jace that. If she’s my sister I would have to listen her talking about Jace ALL THE TIME.
The One You Could Prank the World With

Puck from Iron Fey series. He’s like the joker, so we’d definitely had fun doing pranks.
The Shy Introvert

Jem Carstairs from The Infernal Devices. He’ll be one of those popular boys because he’s just so unapproachable. Too mysterious and shy.

Your Ultimate Book Sibling

I’d say the Salvatores. I’d love to have those laid-back but dangerously protective older brothers, who I could have fun with and I could count on when I need them. We’ll just pretend that the picture above is them watching you on prom. Damon wants to bit your date and Stefan is pretty much confused if he should be happy or worried.

Your Blogging Sibling

Hmm I don’t think I have any. I’m not super close with any bloggers. But I’d love to have one though!



Book Review: My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga

 My Heart and Other Black Holes
by Jasmine Warga
E-book Edition, 205 pages
2015, Balzer + Bray
✰✰✰✰.5

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.

Sixteen-year-old physics nerd Aysel is obsessed with plotting her own death. With a mother who can barely look at her without wincing, classmates who whisper behind her back, and a father whose violent crime rocked her small town, Aysel is ready to turn her potential energy into nothingness.

There’s only one problem: she’s not sure she has the courage to do it alone. But once she discovers a website with a section called Suicide Partners, Aysel’s convinced she’s found her solution: a teen boy with the username FrozenRobot (aka Roman) who’s haunted by a family tragedy is looking for a partner.

Even though Aysel and Roman have nothing in common, they slowly start to fill in each other’s broken lives. But as their suicide pact becomes more concrete, Aysel begins to question whether she really wants to go through with it. Ultimately, she must choose between wanting to die or trying to convince Roman to live so they can discover the potential of their energy together. Except that Roman may not be so easy to convince.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25013180-my-heart-and-other-black-holes

This book started out pretty depressing. I mean, our main character, Aysel is actually want to die and keep thinking about dying. The best way to die, the way to leave notes, when, etc. It’s really dark and depressing. Then Aysel meets Roman, someone who also wants to die and they become suicide partners.

“He’s no longer the person I want to die with; he;s the person I want to be alive with.”

I don’t think I’ve ever read any book about depression. I mean not like this. I’ve read about suicide, in 13 Reasons Why, but it wasn’t about depression. I’ve read about depression, in The Perks of Being A Wallflower, but it was subtle in my opinion that I didn’t realize at that time. In this book, both Aysel and Roman admits that they have depression. They’re being honest with themselves and they accept each other. They accept others’ sadness and their acceptance slowly helps each other. Especially Aysel. When Aysel realises that she still has so much to live for it’s just so beautiful. It happened so slowly, like she starts by thinking about the little, unimportant things. And then her own family. And then what she wanted to do about the future. It’s just so beautiful to read, the process of healing. And I’m glad she finally speaks up about her feelings to others and start participating more.
I still feel bad for Roman though. Living with that kind of guilt of what you’ve done is definitely worse than living with fear of what you’ll become. It’s something you’ll bear for the rest of your life, and it’ll take much longer to heal.
I don’t know anything about depression, and I never experience it. If it’s really like what’s described in this book, then it must be really horrible. It must be really bad to make you want to give up on life.
Overall, I highly recommended this book. The characters development are so amazing, and the plot is beautiful. And I do love the writing style, Aysel’s voice is so powerful, she makes us reader believe and understand what is like to going through depression.

To end this review, here’s my favorite quote from this book. I hope anyone who has problem who read this could feel better, even only slightly.

“… But this isn’t even about me, or how I feel about you. I want you to live for you because I know there’s so much more waiting for you to discover and experience. And you deserve it, you might not think you do, but you do. And I’m here to tell you that you deserve it.”

Book Review: Fairest of All and The Beast Within by Serena Valentino

Look at these beauties! Those books are Villains series by Disney, written by Serena Valentino. It was supposed to be a trilogy, but the third book haven’t come out yet. I’ve been eyeing these books for a while, because just look at it! How can someone resists them?

But do the story within live up to the beauties of the covers? Will they ruin our beloved Disney Classic stories? Let’s find out!

The Beast Within is a retelling of beloved Beauty and the Beast, supposedly from the Beast pov. I was really expecting angst and desperation while reading this. I was expecting how the Beast gradually warmed up to Belle, and eventually fall in love.
But this book isn’t about that. Yes, it does tell Beauty and the Beast, but it’s like only a side story. The main plot is why he was cursed. I find the story both interesting and boring.
I love how it incorporates Greek Mythology, like Circe and the three sisters whom I don’t know if they represent Fates or Furies. They play important part in the story. It was interesting seeing how arrogant the prince was, but at the same time, his life is all about girls, hunting, and partying it became boring and tedious. I also loved the slow transition of the Prince into the Beast, and how the servants became furniture.
Overall, I quite liked it, but I find it boring. I rated it 2.5/5 stars. 

The Fairest of All tells us the story of the Evil Queen. How he met Snow’s father, and what caused her to became the way she was. I was expecting to find out why she was evil, maybe like Once Upon A Time where Snow made her loved one killed?
This book gives me that expectations. I feel sympatethic toward the Queen. She had terrible past, and grief does change people. It’s just unfortunate how she lets her grief destroyed her. But I find the reason a bit cliche. I enjoyed reading her interactions with Snow White, and that epilouge really scares me! What if Snow turned out just like The Queen?

Overall it was a pretty entertaining read. I’d love to see it a bit longer, because some events just feel too rushed. I rated it 3.5/5 stars.

The Unfinished Series

Do you have any series that you enjoyed a lot, but haven’t finished them yet? Because life keeps getting in the way, or because there are so many books to read and so many new releases that you ended up just keep buying new books other than books in that series? Yeah me too.

I’m not exactly a series person, especially the long one, that have more than 5 books. I either got distracted or bored. I just find them being too long. I prefer stand-alone, or at least a trilogy. But sometimes, even if there are only 3 books in the series, I could get distracted and keep putting the series on hold. Thus I may continued the series a year, or maybe 2 years later and ended up forgetting all about the plot and the characters, and ended up didn’t enjoyed them as much as I hoped to be.

Why don’t I binge read, you ask? Well, I’m an easily bored person. Last year, I devoured the Grisha series all in one month, and even though I enjoyed them a lot, I still struggled to get through the 3rd book because I can’t wait to finish the series and plunged into another book/another world.

This list is divided into 2 parts: series I keep putting on hold and old series that I haven’t continue because I can’t find the next book. So let’s see how many series I need to finish.

Series I keep putting on hold

 

1. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

I read Anna last year and really enjoyed it, but for some reasons I’m not motivated enough to read Lola. Hopefully I could finish this series this year!

2. Anna Dressed in Blood Kendare Blake

I enjoyed the story, but the romance really turned me off. Which is why I keep putting off the 2nd book. Let’s just hope I’m motivated enough to read this for halloween!

3. Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

I read the first 2 book, they were borrowed from my friend. We both  enjoyed it, but somehow she never bought the 3rd book and I don’t like it that much to buy it on my own. So yeah. Another book unfinished.

4. Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

I also read Rebel Belle last year and really enjoyed it. Again, somehow I’m not in the mood to read the 2nd book. Hopefully I could read it this year!

5. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Okay, this is the book I’m dying to read. I owned the 1st and 2nd book, but the Indonesian Publisher took so long to translate Dreams of Gods and Monsters. Up until this point, they haven’t released it yet and I began losing hope.

6. Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

Somehow, I didn’t enjoy this series as much as I hope I would. Something about it makes it only an okay series for me, and makes me not in a hurry to finish it.

7. Perfect Chemistry by Simon Elkeles

Again, this is the book I really want to read, but the Indonesian Publisher haven’t published the 3rd book, but it could re-released Rules of Attraction twice. *fuming*

8. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

This one is also an okay series for me, so I’m not really in a hurry to finish this. Plus I heard Queen of Shadows sink my ship??? #notgood #badsarah

9. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

Somehow, I’m bad at finishing her books. I read Vampire Academy ages ago, and remember really enjoyed it. I even still remember everything that happened. I also watched the movie and really liked it. But somehow, I’m not really interested to read the next book.

10. Wonder by R.J Palacio

This is one of my favorites book, but I haven’t read the companion book at all.

Old series that I can’t find the next book

  1. Evernight by Claudia Gray: ✔ Evernight ✔ Stargazer ✘ Hourglass ✔ Afterlife ✘ Balthazar
  2. Spellcaster by Claudia Gray: ✔ Spellcaster ✘ Steadfast ✘ Soceress
  3. Need by Carrie Jones: ✔ Need ✔ Captivate ✘ Entice ✘ Endure
  4. Dark Guardian by Rachel Hawthorne: ✔ Moonlight ✔ Dark of the Moon ✔ Full Moon      ✔ Shadow of the Moon

 

Do you prefer series or stand alones? Do you have many unfinished series?
