BEST STAND-ALONE:

AN ENCHANTMENT OF RAVENS BY MARGARET ROGERSON

 An Enchantment of Ravens BLURB: A skilled painter must stand up to the ancient power of the faerie courts—even as she falls in love with a faerie prince—in this gorgeous debut novel.

Isobel is a prodigy portrait artist with a dangerous set of clients: the sinister fair folk, immortal creatures who cannot bake bread, weave cloth, or put a pen to paper without crumbling to dust. They crave human Craft with a terrible thirst, and Isobel’s paintings are highly prized. But when she receives her first royal patron—Rook, the autumn prince—she makes a terrible mistake. She paints mortal sorrow in his eyes—a weakness that could cost him his life.

Furious and devastated, Rook spirits her away to the autumnlands to stand trial for her crime. Waylaid by the Wild Hunt’s ghostly hounds, the tainted influence of the Alder King, and hideous monsters risen from barrow mounds, Isobel and Rook depend on one another for survival. Their alliance blossoms into trust, then love—and that love violates the fair folks’ ruthless laws. Now both of their lives are forfeit, unless Isobel can use her skill as an artist to fight the fairy courts. Because secretly, her Craft represents a threat the fair folk have never faced in all the millennia of their unchanging lives: for the first time, her portraits have the power to make them feel.

      Thank you! Letters to the Lost was fun, romantic, and an emotional read. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Alex, Approximately was a fun book to read. I really didn’t expect to love it but it turns out to be a great read. I’m so excited for you to read Gemina! It’s totally total action packed and you’ll love the new characters.

        I did read Ninja Girl but I still think Adorkable is better. It’s the friends to lovers trope… gets me everytime!

    Yay for Letters to the Lost, Adorkable, Punk 57 and Penryn & the End of Days! Those first three are going on my favorites for 2017 and End of Days was on my 2016 favorites. 🙂 Next year I plan on bingeing the Talon Series and The Illuminae Files Series and also reading Trust and Everything Under the Sun. I hope I love them all as much as you did!

    You read Adorkable!!! I freaking love that book… my favourite book on this list is Nevernight because it’s the only one I’ve read in 2017 on this list. I have ACOTAR but I’m so scared of reading it and not liking it..
    You had such had such an amazing reading year I’m kind of jealous.

      I’m glad you loved Adorkable too! It was a total fun book to read. Nevernight was amazing but godsgrave was totally epic. If you haven’t read it yet then you must read ASAP. It was a mind blowing read! ACOTAR is totally worth giving a shot.
      haha! I really did! Thanks for the visit! 🙂

    I haven’t read any of these (I am such a slow reader and too many books!) but MANY of them are on my moody reading list. So I’m hoping to read them this year. I was happy to see you loved Flame in the Mist. That is high on my list. And Gemina!! 💗

      I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on flame in the mist, and gemina. Both are great reads. I really hope you enjoy these two as much as I did. Hope you have an amazing bookish month! ☺️

    I’ve heard mixed reviews of Caraval, but I’m still curious to read it. And I really wanna read Eliza and her monsters!

      Caraval is totally worth giving a shot! Eliza and Her Monsters was really a great read. I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did. It’s a must read if you like YA contemporary books. 🙂
