Pick this up if- You want a fun, fast paced urban fantasy. You like the new girl introduced to a new world trope. You want to get introduced to the Shadowhunters world. You like a good, heartbreaking love triangle. You like adventures and sub plots. 

Don’t pick this up if- You don’t want something trope-y. You don’t like convenient storylines. You don’t like angst and drama. You want something realistically historical.

I get asked how I read so many books. This is how I do it:
Kindle Unlimited (definitely worth it for romance readers)
Audible (2 free audiobooks for your first month); I have the Audible Premium Plus with 2 credits a month
Prime membership allows me to get new books at my doorstep fast (get the first month free). I have Prime Student which comes with a 6 month free trial.
I also had Audible Escape but it got cancelled 😦
But Audible Plus is supposed to have a lot of books across all genres

The perfect gifts for a loved one
Audible gift membership
Prime gift membership
