    THE QUEEN OF NOTHING BY HOLLY BLACK // book talk: is the folk of the air series worth it? ft luscious writing and delicious romance

    Huh I really just did that to myself didn’t I?? I mean I can truly only blame myself. I… had heard a lot about this series. But they didn’t really seem like my thing?
