OHHH TELL ME WHATCHA WANT WHATCH REALLY REALLY WANT (I'll tell ya what I want what I really really want) I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna really really really wanna see a female lead who doesn't sacrifice everything for a half-baked romance with a man who has the personality of a soggy lettuce and with whom she had a total of 3 conversations.

I thought we all collectively agreed to leave that in 2017. Let her wrench his heart out, you cowards.

Here, Sara, take my heart, it's yours.

Rips her heart out, gives it to the author, dies. Her ghost now returns to write this review and haunt Sara until the second instalment is out.

Sometimes you see a book, drool over the cover read the premise and know, in your blood and your bones, that you are going to love it. That you'll lose yourself in its pages, see what the characters see and feel what they feel, and that you won't rest until you savor the last sentence. That's the case with Bring Me T

This was an absolute delightful bucket of sass, witches and stabbing. And a few bloody tears and fantastic dresses along the way. Honestly it's just so much fun. And while I thought this was a standalone going in lmao no the ending basically pets you on the shoulder and then throws your feels off a cliff. So #nice. I'll just be sitting here on a tree stump crying for book 2.

When I was in high school, I was really into Inuyasha - to the point where I would actually seek out fanfiction for it, because the manga was not enough and I wasn't really allowed to watch that much TV growing up. One of my favorite characters in the series (apart from Seshoumaru and Naraku, because villains) was the witch, Kagura, who was a servant of Naraku and rode around on a giant feather. She hated Naraku, but he had her ac

The majority of new fantasy books lately have been boring me to tears. Too much time describing pointless things and no real characters! I was automatically drawn into the cover and blurb here, so I hoped it wouldn’t fall into that same endless loophole I’ve been stuck in! And I’ll have to say, this book was so much fun!

Finally, interesting characters! I loved Zera’s snarkiness and the constant battle she had with her inner monster. Loved Lucien! The romance is an incredible slow and beautiful b

Bring Me Their Hearts by Sara Wolf is a young adult fantasy read that from the moment I saw the cover I began a stalking campaign to get my hands on this book. Thankfully this one turned into one of the times that the story lives up to the beautiful cover and I didn't regret my obsession with getting a copy.

What Sara Wolf has done with this story is taken a new twist on a zombie like character. Zera is what is known as a Heartless.  When Zera's family was killed by Heartless a witch, Nightsinger

Love Sara Wolf's writing. Also, blood-hungry main characters are so my jam.

TBH, I thought I'd DNFed this one, until I checked my Kindle app and saw that I did, in fact, reach the 100% mark. That's how much this book annoyed me.

It was just your typical YA fantasy--and tried too hard to be that, if you ask me. The heroine Zera constantly made these not-really-funny side comments and comebacks that did NOT appeal to me. And why does the voice of the "hunger" have to be WriTtEn liKE tHiS?! IS IT A MEME!? So yeah, the writing and characterization obviously didn't do anythin

OMG. Listen. I don't BS when it comes to books/reviews. I say what I like, and I loved this book HARD. I also rarely read sequels these days - there are just so many series and so little time - but I need book 2 for this one. And I need to meet this fellow author.
So, so good, you guys.

HOLY HELL, THIS BOOK WAS GLORIOUS. Everything I wanted in a YA fantasy. Now I'm just depressed I have to wait for the rest of the series (I thought it was a standalone when I picked it up), but even so, the wait will totally be worth it. I DNF'd one of this author's contemporary romances and now I think I should go back and give the book another shot in case I was just in the wrong mindset to give it a fair chance, but in any case Sara is now an autobuy for me for any of her upcoming YA fantasie ...more
Video Review:

THIS BOOK WAS EVERYTHING. It was so refreshing to read something that had me this excited to see what was going to happen next. Although I didn’t love Sara Wolf’s contemporary, this blew me out of the water. From the fantastical elements, to the characters, to the characters that stole my heart; I throughly enjoyed seeing what was going to happen next. I was completely hooked. I have so much to say that I can’t wait to discuss in my book review!

This book was such a surprise. I had zero expectations but as soon as I started reading I knew this was going to be a good one.
I think the most amazing part of the book is the protagonist, Zera. She's a heartless, her heart is literally in a jar. She was 'saved' by a witch, Nightsinger, when she was on the brink of death but not having a heart means having to eat raw meat in order to remain sane, obey

Bring Me Their Hearts by Sara Wolf was so much fun—much more fun than its grisly premise would lead you to believe. The book stars Zera, who was murdered in a brutal bandit attack when she was just sixteen years old, but was then “saved” when the witch Nightsinger resurrected her by carving out her heart, keeping the organ safe in a magical jar. Now Zera has become a Heartless—immortal, un-ageing, and unkillable by any e

I love Sara Wolf's Young Adult Contemporary "Lovely Vicious Series". I didn’t think Wolf could top herself as an awesome storyteller after the Vicious Series, but then she goes and gives us a Young Adult Fantasy that is totally out-of this-world. Amazing world building, witches, a heartless immortal soldier, a rebellious prince, and fantastic creatures—it has it all. But—yes, there’s a but—Wolf is killing me with her keep us readers dangling by our fingertips cliffhangers. I didn't think Wolf co ...more

Bring Me Their Hearts was absolutely spellbinding and will stay with me for a long time to come. With an intriguing story and witty characters, I found myself quickly flying through the pages. Especially since I always had that feeling that I had to know what happened next. So if you enjoy YA Fantasies that are filled with banter, mystery, romance, political intrigue and darkness, then you definitely have to give this book a try!
It's a small mercy that my lie is also a truth. I

For some reason I didn't expect this to be as good as it was. I loved this book! I initially thought that this was a retelling of Snow White and the Huntsman, and I guess it is, extremely loosely so, but not in the way I expected. This story is unique and filled with some fantasy elements that made for a very interesting book.

The characters were developed exceptionally well. Zera, a heartless and the main character, fights

I want nothing more than to stay in this moment, my hand in his. But that’s an impossibility. A weakness. I am a monster, and he’s a human. I want his heart, and I want his other heart. His affection, his blood. I want it all.
But if I take one, I can’t have the other.

Ahhh what a conundrum. This book was just…silly. I’m sorry, but a story that obviously was in capable hands of being well-written (it was, but it wasn’t) was so repetitive and confused in it’s tone that I couldn’t fall head ove

Ich habe dieses Buch als Rezensionsexemplar erhalten und konnte nicht abwarten es zu lesen!
Vielleicht habe ich mich von dem wirklich wunderschönen Cover etwas blenden lassen...
Aber der Reihe nach:
Die Idee an sich gefiel mir sehr gut und der Schreibstil ebenso, auch wenn er einfach war und nicht ausgereift, aber ich mochte die Atmosphäre mit den Seidenrüschen und Spitzenkleidchen. Die Story konnte mich auch so weit mitnehmen, dass ich mich nicht gelangweilt habe es zu lesen und wissen wollte und

Eine Herzlose kann nicht sterben und Zera wird auserwählt, in die Stadt zu reißen und dem Prinzen das Herz zu stehlen. Und das nicht im Sinne der Liebe.
Sie soll dem Prinzen das Herz aus der Brust reißen und es den Hexen bringen um einen erneuten Krieg zwischen den Menschen und Hexen zu verhindern.
