War has begun. Arin is in the thick of it with untrustworthy new allies and the empire as his enemy. Though he has convinced himself that he no longer loves Kestrel, Arin hasn’t forgotten her, or how she became exactly the kind of person he has always despised. She cared more for the empire than she did for the lives of innocent people—and certainly more than she did for him.

At least, that’s what he thinks.

In the frozen north, Kestrel is a prisoner in a brutal work camp. As she searches desperately for a way to escape, she wishes Arin could know what she sacrificed for him. She wishes she could make the empire pay for what they’ve done to her.

But no one gets what they want just by wishing.

As the war intensifies, both Kestrel and Arin discover that the world is changing. The East is pitted against the West, and they are caught in between. With so much to lose, can anybody really win?

My favourite literary kiss!

Under the Lights (Daylight Falls, #2)I have to choose Under the Lights by Dahlia Adler! It’s a swoony YA romance where the guy doesn’t get the girl (the girl gets the girl) and it’s fantastic. It’s such a happy making book and I highly recommend it to everyone, as it also deals with some important messages about hollywood and being a minority in the business. Vanessa and Brianna are both awesome characters and their kisses are not only sweet and adorable, but also have a hint of forbidden romance (we all love that trope, don’t lie to yourself)! This is basically me reading that book:


Bonus question time! What kiss do you hope will occur in Marie Rutkoski’s The Winner’s Kiss?

Oh, I really hope it’s finally Arin and Kestrel. I’ve been rooting for them for so long and I just.. IT NEEDS TO HAPPEN! I mean no threats but I mean…
Imagine this agony on my face about the angst of the series, I *need* it to happen okay.
