“That’s the stag,” Celaena breathed. “The Lord of the North.”

“Why does he get a fancy title? What about the swan and the dragon?”

Celaena snorted, but the smile faded when she stared at the familiar constellation. “Because the stag remains constant - no matter what the season, he’s always there.”

“Why?”

Celaena took a long breath. “So the people of Terrasen will always know how to find their way home. So they can look up at the sky, no matter where they are, and know Terrasen is forever with them.“

- The Assassin and the Desert
You guys, how amazing is this design!? I love that they included the Stag and her two swords! Not to mention, the amazing people at Litographs have been kind enough to offer a little something-something for Bookish readers!

Feature & Follow: Writing Reviews


The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How do you write your reviews?

Depends on the book. Some books I have so much to say that I just start typing and work it out from there - whether while writing or when I go back and makes sure it all makes sense. If I'm not entirely sure what to say (which could be a good thing or bad thing), I follow kind of an outline about point I want to make sure I talk about.

I write notes here and there while reading the book and then some once I finish so I make sure I include my initial feelings once I finish. Sometimes I write reviews with a few hours of finishing a book (like the next day) sometimes it takes me a while to get around to writing a review and my notes back no sense. I've had a lot of moments where I read a note I wrote and have no idea what I was going for or exactly what I meant, so I try not to wait too long before writing a review otherwise it turns out like this:

THIS BOOK IS AMAZING! READ IT NOW AND LOVE! FEEEEEEEEEEELS

or

IT WAS OKAY. THINGS HAPPENING, BUT NOTHING REALLY MEMORABLE. READ IT IF YOU WANT. I DIDN'T HATE IT.


Tell me - how do you write your reviews? You can follow us however you like, just make sure to leave me a comment below with a link to your blog so I can visit! :)

Blog Tour: Charmed by Michelle Krys (Playlist + Giveaway)


Genre:
Young Adult, Fantasy, Paranormal
Publication.Date  May 26th 2015
Pages:368
Published By:  Delacorte Press
AuthorMichelle Krys

Charmed on Goodreads

Where to get:


Indie has spent the last few weeks frantically searching for Paige. She's tried every spell imaginable, but witchcraft has gotten her nowhere, and she's going crazy with guilt. Despite what her warlock boyfriend, Bishop, tells her, Indie knows it's her fault her best friend was kidnapped by the Priory. And with the Priory destroyed, finding Paige feels more hopeless than ever-especially when Indie discovers that Paige isn't even on Earth. She's trapped in Los Demonios, an alternate dimension of Los Angeles filled with evil paranormals. No one who has gone there has ever come out.

Fueled by terror and loyalty, Indie is desperate to find a way into the underworld prison. She'll worry about getting out later. But facing the dark world's most dangerous witches and warlocks on her own means keeping her plan hush-hush-and forging alliances with some sketchy people, including a seriously sexy sorcerer.

Sometimes a witch must keep secrets from the people she cares about most. And sometimes she isn't the only one with secrets…
