    1. *tips mic* thank you for joining me this evening. this song is called: here's how I feel about this book. *screams for 12 continuous hours*this book just killed me in the comfort of my own home. my feelings are owed so many apologies because I have been emotionally compromised by Holly Black and I just want to lie on the floor and not think for a month or two. I mean, honestly, why read this book when you can just get hit by a bus and get the same feeling???Truly though, I wish I could get a tat [...]

    2. No matter how careful I am, eventually I'll make another misstep. I am weak. I am fragile. I am mortal.I hate that most of all.4 1/2 stars. Over the course of this year, I've read both books that I've liked and books I've disliked. I've read books that I've loved and, it's fair to say, books that are better written, more unique, and more groundbreaking than this book. That being said, however, I am struggling to recall a book that has left me this excited about a YA series in a very long time. I [...]

    3. “He looks like a faerie lover stepped out of a ballad, the kind where no good comes to the girl who runs away with him.”If you guys ever want to see what my true heart’s desires are on paper, read this book. This book is a piece of heaven that was sent from above, this book is the perfection incarnate, this book is nothing short of magical, this book easily makes my top five books of all-time list, and this book is without a doubt the best book I’ve read in 2017. I’m not sure how I’m [...]

    4. WHAT IS THIS BEAUTY. Someone please revive me because I am dead from the awesomeness of this book.If you want to read a masterpiece of character and story, look no further. The Cruel Prince showcases Holly Black at the top of her game: it is exquisitely dark and delightfully wicked, set in an intricate world of highlighted sensation--the taste of faerie fruit, the feel of rich, decaying fabrics, the smells of dangerous old chambers--and populated by a cast of characters that left me dying from f [...]

    5. Absolutely loved this read!! A wondrous fantasy novel that is easy to get invested in. So many great plot twists and high-intensity, suspenseful moments!TW: murder, physical abuse, sexual abuse, suicideHolly Black is truly the queen of creating exquisite worlds. Her interpretation of faeries is always so fascinating and glorious. It’s hard to fully capture what it is about her world-building that is so magical, but her books are always my favorite when it comes to faeries. I believe a part of [...]

    6. "If I cannot be better than them, I will become so much worse." I see why people call Holly Black 'Queen of the Faeries'. Hoooly wow. What a delightfully dark, twisty novel.If you know anything about me, I'm all about the court politics & intrigue, villains & anti-heroes, and schemes within plots within schemes. This book had my name written ALL over it.Okay so here's the basic rundown without giving away too much. Jude and Taryn are twins. Vivi is their older sister. It turns out, Vivi' [...]

    7. You know a story is good when, at night, before falling asleep, you eagerly replay the story in your mind, but this time with you as the main character living an exciting adventure full of intrigue, danger and romance. It’s one of my preferred ways of falling in the arms of Morpheus. What we have here is Holly Black’s best work if I dare say so myself. I am amazed with this author’s ability to paint scenes of faerie romance, glamour, deception and terror that make your heart pound and stop [...]

    8. I CAN'T GET OVER HOW FREAKING BLOODILY FANTASTIC THIS WAS. I WAS GOING TO BE CHILL ABOUT THE WHOLE THING MY LMAO NO. THIS BOOK IS STABBY AND MARVELLOUS AND I WANT 9 MORE.I'm actually reeling okay?! Holly Black has been a favourite of mine for years and I was craving more murderous dark faerie books. This is not about Tinkerbell. This is about the monsters in the woods and enchantments and torture and massacres and conniving. This book is, most definitely, about cruel wit. And I absolutely love i [...]

    9. I already knew it was coming but here is my Fairyloot box =) Clink link below pic to see about the items! FAIRYLOOT STUFFOMG! Click on my link below the picture to see close-ups and my synopsis of the items =) OWLCRATE STUFFHoly sh*t balls! I love it =) I love Jude! She's my new bad to the bone girl!

She wants to be a Kn [...]

    10. I don’t get it. I just don’t fucking get it. ✨ Before: This book is my 1st experience with Holly Black. It’ll either make or break our future relationship. ✨ After: Any plans for a potential future relationship is hereby terminated. Over. Done with. Null and void. Cancelled you get the point.when you go into a book expecting gold and it ends up being your worst read of the year. In January…Oh, the rage…Be back with a full review… soon.

    11. Well, despite marking this as "currently reading" (I put books there that I plan to read within the next week or two) I finally cracked this bad boy open todayd finished it in one three-hour siting.So, if that's not an indication of something being a seriously above average read, I don't know what is. Jude was a really edgy, imperfect, relatable character and I really liked her. So often, I want characters to do something - maybe say something or do something I want them to do in a specific mome [...]

    12. So, where to begin. Hype as we know it, is quite futile. The buzz it ignites is amazing. They create this excitement within you that has your mind wandering to all of the possibilities and direction the book can go in. Because of the hype, I assumed I would enjoy this book. I'm quite an easy-to-please reader, so usually when a book is hyped up, I tend to enjoy it. Or even if I don't, I will feel indifferent. But this book brought about rage in me; I hated it with every fibre of my being. You may [...]

    13. If I cannot be better than them, I will be so much worse.I literally hate this book so much. why did I do this to myself.The Cruel Prince has just about what you'd expect from Black: court intrigue, an atmosphere of terror, vaguely dark romance, and a main character who is a terrible person. Plus some interesting dynamics and setup for an even better sequel. Needless to say, I found it delightful.I think Black's tendency is to start a story with a badass opening, then spend 200 pages on slow bui [...]

    14. It's gratifying that my first read in 2018 is a five-star read which, fingers crossed, clearly portends a robust book-tiful year.When a book opens with a double murder you wonder if the author did it for the shock value until that is, you realise this is actually a foreshadowing of grimmer twists to come. From the first and until the last page, The Cruel Prince had and held my attention. Black wrote a compelling coming of age story all wrapped in political and familial intrigue. I can't wait for [...]

    15. WrensReads Review:I want to begin with saying that what probably killed this book for me was the hype. I was literally expecting the feels I got when I read A Court of Mist and Fury or Strange the Dreamer. Instead, I would have gotten the feels like when I read A Daughter of Smoke and Bone or Caraval: It was good, but like it wasn't astonishing or mind-blowing.So, story begins with a Fae coming and murdering the parents of a pair a twins and their half-Fae older sister. After witnessing this tra [...]

    16. ∿4.75/5∿This was absolutely lovely and magical. Ya'll, the hype surrounding this book is all very real. Please do yourself a favor, sit down with a large cup of tea/coffee and READ THIS.Where do I even begin? My mind is still reeling from all of the twists and turns! Holly Black really outdid herself with this one, you guys. She really did.The characters were amazing. Not all of them were, but the ones that had to be, were brilliant. I mean, I love Holly Black for making Jude the was she was [...]

    17. 3.5 stars / There were things I really liked about this book and other things that were misses for me. I definitely don't think this is the groundbreaking, earth shattering read that many are making it out to be, but I'm glad I read it and I think later books in the series will be stronger. Full review and spoiler discussion to come on my channel :)

    18. I’m so glad that this is the first book I read in 2018 as it’s a year for phenomenal books and The Cruel Prince is definitely one of them, I was engrossed by the first chapter and I fell more and more in love with the book as I read.Fairy books can be hit and miss with me, I loved A Court of Thorns and Roses but disliked The Iron Fey (or whatever they were called) and I wasn’t amazed by An Enchantment of Ravens but this book blew me away, I absolutely loved this book.“Because you’re li [...]

    19. “Love is a noble cause. How can anything in the service of a noble cause be wrong?”Story ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️One day a stranger knocks at Jude’s home and kills her parents only to take her and her sisters to Faerie, a land of magical creatures, where they’re treated badly for being human. The king of the land has many heirs, but only one stands out for Jude. Cardan, who hates her so badly that he makes her life a living hell. Until she fights back. This book was so freaking add [...]

    20. The Cruel Prince, aka EVERYBODY SHUT UP THIS IS THE ONLY THING I'M GOING TO TALK ABOUT IN 2018!!!© ❥ first buddy read of the year with my loves, marami, jiabee and the grinchi'm emotionally drained and physically exhausted from reading this book in the span of the last 24 hours so naturally it's the perfect time to sit down and try to put my feelings into words ◆Plot:without wanting to give too much away, this book tells the story of a mortal girl named Jude who, along with her two sisters, [...]

    21. Brace yourselves, folks, we're jumping on the hype wagon!“If I cannot be better than them, I will become so much worse.” First Stop: ElfhameWith all the raving reviews about The Cruel Prince, how could little ol' Katerina resist? The Hype (yes, Hype with a capital H because it's a being of its own that swallows the innocent and the weak) was a siren, luring me to dive into its dark waters, and, thankfully, I was not eaten alive. With a successful blend of modern world and faerie lore, Holly [...]

    22. This one was slow at first and built towards a really exciting conclusion. The main character made so many choices I didn't agree with, but that's what made it fun and a bit edgy. Don't fully understand the hype for this as my FEELS weren't ignited at all, but hoping the next one will have more feels inducing drama.

    23. Release date: January 2, 2018I NEED THIS SEQUEL NOW omg. That just got better and better the entire way through!! I was hesitant at first when I heard this book blended fae elements into a modern setting (because y'all know how picky I get with that) but everything ended up working SO perfectly.Jude and her two sisters have been raised in the faerie world by the man who murdered their parents (and fathered one of the sisters), soooo that's a wee bit of a complicated relationship. The modern worl [...]

    24. I am SHOOK. This book is the Game of Thrones of the Fae world and it is even more brutal and shocking that anyone could possibly imagine. I cannot recommend this one enough. It is absolutely my favorite book of the year so far. I cannot wait to re-read this!

    25. I actually finished this one late last night, but haven't had a chance to update until now. Maybe the amount of pressure I put on this book to wow me wasn't fair, but I didn't feel like I loved this as much as everyone else has. It was a good read and I definitely would like to continue with the next one, but I'm not clamoring for it as I just don't feel a deep connection with the characters yet. I'll come up with a full review as soon as my daughter is on the mend. <3
