Katiebird Reviews The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Fey Series by Julie Kagawa

The Faery realms have always weathered the clash of Summer and Winter fey, the Seelie and Unseelie Courts. Now a new breed of faery has emerged to challenge both… to their peril. Forged by Man’s insatiable pursuit of technological superiority, the terrifying Iron fey are massing…and the fate of all faeries hangs in the balance. The greatest weapon in this epic magical war? A half-human teenage girl.

Honestly, I really am wondering what the hell I was reading when these books came out back in 2012-2013. Well..there really is only so much time in the day to read, so I will have to forgive myself for not starting this series sooner. With each book, I fell more in love with the characters and their lives. It will be no surprise to anyone who has read this series to hear which book is my favorite!

Book Beginnings on Fridays is a meme hosted by Rose City Reader. A couple of Fridays a month, I will share the first sentence (or so) of the book I am currently reading, along with my initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.

To be completely honest, I haven’t truly started reading this book, but it’s been on my TBR list for years. That’s right, I have books on my Kindle app that been there that long. I am a huge fan of Julie Kagawa, so I am excited to dive into this series…

Hannah Both Ways by Rosie Greenway

A devastating Twitter prank yanks Hannah out of the popular crowd and turns her into the high school’s best bad joke. Determined to finish the year and graduate, Hannah must keep the humiliating details from her impulsive mother—who just might pack up their belongings and move. Again.

Hannah hovers below the radar by submersing herself in a new routine. Post-it notes, Dewey Decimal numbers and carefully planned trips to the library are her refuge. That is, until a persistent new student invades her space. Lucas has complete disregard for Hannah’s cynicism and snark, and he seems to know the bullies who targeted her. Can Hannah trust him, or is he part of another ploy to torment her?

I was thrilled when Rosie contacted me about her new book! It is a privilege to be asked to be a part of the Blog Tour to promote Hannah Both Ways, because Rosie is an amazing writer and the story touches on a very important issue.
