Beware the goblin men and the wares they sell.

All her life, nineteen-year-old Liesl has heard tales of the beautiful, mysterious Goblin King. He is the Lord of Mischief, the Ruler Underground, and the muse around which her music is composed. Yet, as Liesl helps shoulder the burden of running her family’s inn, her dreams of composition and childish fancies about the Goblin King must be set aside in favor of more practical concerns.

But when her sister Käthe is taken by the goblins, Liesl journeys to their realm to rescue her sister and return her to the world above. The Goblin King agrees to let Käthe go—for a price. The life of a maiden must be given to the land, in accordance with the old laws. A life for a life, he says. Without sacrifice, nothing good can grow. Without death, there can be no rebirth. In exchange for her sister’s freedom, Liesl offers her hand in marriage to the Goblin King. He accepts.

Down in the Underground, Liesl discovers that the Goblin King still inspires her—musically, physically, emotionally. Yet even as her talent blossoms, Liesl’s life is slowly fading away, the price she paid for becoming the Goblin King’s bride. As the two of them grow closer, they must learn just what it is they are each willing to sacrifice: her life, her music, or the end of the world.

Sarah J Maas Signing with Claire Legrand + GIVEAWAY!!

So last week I was really fortunate enough to attend one of Sarah J. Maas’ signings on her Queen of Shadows tour.  It was an awesome time (as always)!  Even better because one of my other favorite authors, Claire Legrand was moderating.  Sarah was hysterical and since her signing fell on the first day of school for many people, she came in and asked:

“School started today right? Welcome back to prison….” 

We were dying.

Here is the fantastic Claire Legrand (which, if you haven’t read Winterspell, what are you waiting for?! It was one of my top books of 2014!)

P1020529

Sarah was accommodating as always and answered a LOT of questions about the next book and what to expect.  There will be even MORE twists and revelations (if that is even possible after QOS) and I seriously CAN NOT WAIT.

I tried to keep it short(er), but there were such great books this year! Keep in mind, I only started the blog in June so I haven’t reviewed all the books on this list.  Doesn’t mean you shouldn’t check them out though!
