Book Review: The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson

I really, really enjoyed The Girl of Fire and Thorns! This is one of the best YA fantasy novels I’ve read in a while and I just can’t gush enough about it. Even though I am a huge fan of this book, I did actually have a few gripes with book as usual (the gemstone in the navel thing reminded me too much of those troll dolls, several plot points reminded me a lot of The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley, and a few more issues) but I completely forgave them all because I was truly captivated by the original setting and the interesting and complex characters from the get go.

This was one book which lived up to all the glowing reviews I’d seen online, rather than not quite being as good as everyone says, which is what often happens for me.
