Many thanks to Julie at jimmy Paterson for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review
I just noticed that Natasha said in her review that this book is full of "cute queer boy demons" and my heart is already palpitating
It's here and I am so glad I got the coverless ARC because.. this cover.. is... not my cup of tea..
WE HAVE A COVER AND I AM
Please let November come sooner! I ...more
OH. MY. GOD. This cover is absolutely stunning and I am 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
I don't love it *quite* as much as the first cover, but at the same time it is GORGEOUS and I CANNOT STOP STARING AT IT.
Productivity? What is that? Why bother doing anything responsible when I can just stare at this cover all day long instead?
This book may not have a release date, cover, or title yet, but it's sure as hell one of my most anticipated releases regardless! I. NEED. IT.
(Also, May is lowkey disowned)
buddy read with the scourge of all human creation
anyways :) the heavens looked down favorably upon me and the publicist decided to give me a physical arc of this (after I wrote a five body paragraph essay in my review request)
Like with the first book I had a feeling that this was somewhat unoriginal. It had some clear The Hunger Games vibes - girl becomes figurehead for resistance, girl gets a (strange) 'codename', girl doubts whether resistance is actually better than established ruling faction. Also, it had some world-building problems. Still, I enjoyed the characters, the overall direction of the story and the LGBT representation.

*single tear* Last year, Girls of Paper and Fire came out. This year, I was lucky enough to have my request for a Girls of Storm and Shadow ARC granted by the publisher! I was super excited to receive this in the mail, so thank you Little, Brown and Co. for sending GOSAS to me.
If I was lukewarm about GOPAF, I am pleasantly REELING from GOSAS. Natasha pretty much gave me everything I asked for at the end of GOPAF in GOSAS. Color me impressed!

girls of storm and shadow - 1.5 stars
GOD I'M SO GLAD THIS IS OVER
this series is so tiring and boring and stupid and pointless...this book had NO PLOT. I just read 400 pages...and I'm like "that's it? that's the book?" because it was so STUPID. an entire book of lei
literally, point out ONE thing they accomplished in this novel and i will be surprised. they did little things, like finding allies, but the entire book was people just keeping secrets, and action scene ...more
And now we have a whole world to set ablaze."
OH BOY. I thought the first book gave me everything I needed with wholesome queer girls together in an amazing fantasy story?
We forget what else gets me goin'.
MORALLY GREY BADASS FEMALE CHARACTERS.
And this book is full of them.
I don't want to say too much about the specifics of this, because well, spoilers, but oh boy, do I love a good morally-grey character. Esp ...more
Being a bookseller really does have its perks.
GoPaL: *ends like how it ends*
Me: this is absolutely
not funny, delete
or my lawyer will
be in contact
Natasha: lets do it
baby, i know
I don't understand this meme, but I'll use it however unironic it is.
Also, I realize how priviledge I am to have access to an ARC, but I am going to wait until I can get access to the audiobook because it's not worth pushing myself when I don't have the ...more

Wren and I might not be Paper Girls anymore, but we are still capable of creating fire.
And now we have a whole world to set ablaze.
Girls of Storm and Shadow was one of my most anticipated releases of 2019, and I honestly screamed on the inside when I received an ARC in the mail. It had been a while since I read the first book, so I had to take a bit of a break to reread Girls of Paper and Fire. Then I had to mentally prepare myself to start this book, and I was not dis ...more
