My Thoughts on Gleam (The Plated Prisoner Series, Book 3) by Raven Kennedy

Gleam is the third installment in the reimaging of the King Midas myth series called The Plated Prisoner. It takes place immediately following the events of Glint, so spoiler warning for that book. Auren learns the fact that King Ravinger is Commander Rip. He is able to transform his appearance between the two, and he's just learned that she's the one who can turn things to gold not Midas. I started this book immediately after finishing Glint because I had to know how Auren was going to react to that information. She has started to get feelings for the Fourth Kingdom's King. Not only that but she feels betrayed by him for not telling her that detail. Similar to how everyone hides or keeps things from her, or tries to dictate her life. She's done with it. And honestly, I don't blame her.…

My Thoughts on Glint (The Plated Prisoner Series, Book 2) by Raven Kennedy

immediately following the events of Gild, so spoiler warning for that book. Auren has been taken by the Fourth's Army, where she is being held captive by Commander Rip and being taken back to Midas so the two kings can come to some sort of agreement. Going into the book I was curious how this one would go especially since it doesn't have the same warnings as the first book. Which I hoped was a good thing, because I really didn't like some of those elements in the first book. But was still drawn in enough by the story, I wanted to see where it would continue with the rest of the series.…

My Thoughts on Gild (The Plated Prisoner Series, Book 1) by Raven Kennedy

Gild is a reimaging of the King Midas myth, the individual who can turn anything to gold with the touch of his hand. The Plated Prisoner series is told from the perspective of Auren, who has been turned into gold from her hair, skin, eyes, etc. Everything about her is gold even down to the two dozen ribbons that come out of her back.

Thoughts on A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas

Thoughts on A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas

Did I stay up all night to read A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas the second that I received the book? Yes. Was I in the middle or reading another book before this? Yes. Do I care? No. Am I going to do a normal review? Also no... mostly as my mind is swarming too much to form a formal write up of my thoughts. So, instead I'm just going to share thoughts I had after I finished reading the book.…

My Thoughts While Reading  Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Barshardoust

Within the last month or so, I've been heavily talking with people over on Discord and joined several different servers. One of which is a writers' Discord by Rebecca Mix called Chaos Sprinters. I love talking with people in there about books and writing. And recently we decided to start a book club on there. The first book we decided to go with is Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Barshardoust. This book has been on my TBR for some time, so I'm glad to finally get around to reading it.…
