SHARE

We know, summer is ending, make the most of August, yada yada, but if there’s one thing you do this weekend, you should be reading Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdhieh. The first book in a fantasy duology filled with action, adventure, and romance, this is a book you absolutely do not want to miss. Why, you ask? Read on for 8 reasons this is the book you should be reading this weekend.

 

The writing


 

The romance

 

Your favorite authors love it

 

Because Mulan is your favorite Disney character (Yes, we know this is Japan, not China)

 

Because The Wrath and the Dawn Duology gives you life

. “I will never forget, all the days of my life, the memories of last night– for nothing, not the sun, not the rain, not even the brightest star in the darkest sky, could begin to compare to the wonder of you. When I think of you, I can’t find the air to breathe. And now, though you are gone, there is no pain or fear. All I am left with is gratitude. When I was young, my mother would tell me that one of the best things in life is the knowledge that your story isn’t over yet. Our story may have come to a close, but your story is still yet to be told. Make it a story worthy of you. I failed you in one last thing and here is my chance to rectify it. It was never because I didn’t feel it, it was because I swore I would never say it. So I write it to the sky– I love you, a thousand times over. And I will never apologize for it.” -The Wrath and The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh . . I’m not ugly crying, you’re ugly crying!!! GAHHHH this story broke my heart in more ways than one… that ending though?!?!?! My emotions can’t handle all these sad endings!!!! . . Today’s #booksbabesjuly prompt is #flatlay !! It’s one of my favourite styles of photos, especially for books! . . #bookworm #bookish #thewrathandthedawn #theroseandthedagger #duology #1001nights #retelling #fairytale #findmeinfairytales #booksandtea #booksandflowers #bookchallenge #lovestory #yareads #bookreviewer #bookblogger #bookoutlet #bookhaul #bookmail #flatlaybooks #booksandmakeup #redandblue
