Once again this is a NetGalley copy that I have had lingering around on my Kindle forever. After receiving a copy in my FairyLoot I finally gave in and read it... honestly I was a tad bit disappointed. Personally I thought the writing style a little unnecessarily over complicated, it took a while to get used to but it was beautifully descriptive.
Once again I will try to keep this short as I am fully aware that the content of box boxes is generally plastered absolutely everywhere. So I will just give a quick description from the spoiler card and a super short opinion. Also, this has been my favorite book to date. Everything in it was useful and there was definitely less bumph.
I am keeping it simple this month and being super strict on trying to get through my copies for review...
