I’m pretty hyped about this post. In fact, this is what I look like right now.
This book was THAT GOOD. The Cruel Prince is a new novel by Holly Black (yes, that Holly Black, the one who wrote the Spiderwick Chronicles that we all read as kids). It BLEW MY MIND. This novel was a combination of so many of my favorite things- kickass female MC’s, fairies, excellent worldbuilding, and dark fairy tales.
On top of all of that, it is EXCELLENTLY WRITTEN. If you can’t tell from all the all-caps I’m using, I have a lot of feelings about this book. You guys know the feeling when you start a book and about 50 pages in, you just know that it’s going to be a new favorite? It’s like falling in love, only better because a book can never leave you.
Y’all, I guarantee that if you’re a fan of fairy tales or fantasy novels, this will be one of your new favorites. It’s funny, it’s sarcastic, it’s snarky and beautiful and untrustworthy. I love it beyond all measure.
Final rating- 5/5
Thanks for reading my review, and until next time, happy reading 🙂
