‘Look at me heart, I want to watch you come undone’

I actually really enjoyed this book. It’s received so much attention online, both positive and negative, so I tried to go into this with an open mind. And I really liked it.

It had all the fantasy tropes I love, and I found myself really invested in the story and not expecting the plot twists at the end. I also can’t decide who I’m rooting for, and that makes me even more excited to read the next one!

Good God I’m so so so tired of this trope. Poor ordinary girl. So small and helpless. Somehow saves the day.

Second of all, I envisioned the king as way older?

He falls head over heels in love with her in less than 90 days. Decided to give this girl who has LIED TO HIM THE WHOLE TIME the most power in the whole world?! WTF the more I think about this book the less sense it makes!!!
