    I read The Deal with the Elf King this month too and found it fairly mehhhh as well. But I started Desperate Measures because you’ve been hyping it so much and I am LOVING it 😍 omg I’m already desperate to read the rest of the series n I still have 50 pages left in the first book 🤦🏼‍♀️

    The Bookopoly board was a bitch for my rolls for September. I did 6 rolls and had to add 4 cause of doubles!

    I keep putting off reading because of all the readathon videos coming out in my subscriptions, and then I saw this in my sub box…guess I'll have to procrastinate a bit longer 😂

    I was so bored with Deal with the Elf King, I ended up DNF'ing it.
    I'm so glad I got it through Kindle Unlimited and didn't buy it, because I was so disappointed. I had really expected to love it.

    Just wait until you get to the end of Gleam… 🤯 The first book is a lot of world and character building, and gives you a baseline that the next books build off of and grow from.

    "I don't understand how I could have worked so many hours and not managed to complete every single thing that's in my weekly schedule…" I felt that to my core. The last 2 months of my life.

    I haven’t read The Bone Witch but I read The Never Tilting World duology by Rin Chupeco and they were so much fun and super quick to get through

    I'm currently reading A Deal with the Elf King. I have just over 60 pages left, but my main problem with it is we spend so much time with Luella and inside her head that I'm tired of it. She's constantly flipping between wanting to be with Eldas, but then is like "I want to go back to my home and patients, they need me…blah blah blah." I really think it would be better if we got a chapter or two of Eldas' pov just to show what is going on through his eyes. I have to wait to put it through cawpile but its probably a 3 star read for me as well.

    I read deal with the elf king and thought it was ok and started Gild last week and DNF'd it a little over half way. I just couldn't how slow it was neither could I like the characters

    I also read Gild in August and thought it was really good 🙂 I'm curious what to expect with further books in this series

    I knew you would love Gild! It gets better every book. You should really do a spoiler video for Glint and Gleam! They’re amazing and my new favorite series.

    i always say 'deal with the elf king' is kind of like, a place to start to get into fantasy romance but you probably won't be bowled over if you already read the genre. i liked it personally but i think it was because, as you said, it's a guaranteed hea and sometimes i need that lol.

    We buddy read A Deal With The Elf King couple months ago, it was like ten people, no-one liked it, our rating went from 3* to lowest 1.5* (me 😁), it was so bad. Majority gave it 2 stars only 🙈. We were all so dissapointed.

    You look cute! 😍😍😍 I love flannels too! Gild sounds intriguing…🥰🥰🥰

    I thoroughly enjoyed this reading vlog ❤️ Also, great perseverance on your part for finishing A Deal with the Elf King, I think I dnf’ed it 3 chapters in, the writing was subpar in my opinion, every scene was built very poorly and the setting was just bare bones, as if the author couldn’t write a well-fleshed out setting for her story. Gild was awesome, I’m currently finishing book 2, I hope you enjoy it as much as/more than book 1, such an interesting series imo ☺️

    I've heard good things about Deal with the elf king- I hope you enjoy it. I'm pretty sure that Ashleigh read it and liked it.

    I am now 100% going to add Gild to my TBR now god it’s becoming so huge😰But honestly I really want to read Gild now and I’m trying to figure out how to put it on my September TBR…

    I'm so excited for you for reading The Bone Witch series!!!! Hopefully you don't hate it. Also, there's some Filipino references in there since the author is a Chinese Filipino writer. That's one of the reasons why I love it cause I am Filipino.
