I don’t know about you, but I’ve been dying to know what happened next after reading House of Earth and Blood. Not too long ago, Sarah J. Maas announced the title to Crescent City #2. In my HOEAB review I predicted that the sequel would be named “House of Flame and Shadow”… Was I right?Continue reading
House of Earth and Blood
Kiss, Marry, Kill: Books Read in 2020 Edition
One of my favorite things to do to pass time is daydream. I love daydreaming. My mind wanders all the time, even when I should be focusing on the lectures and assignments at hand. One of my favorite topics to daydream about is what it would be like to be in the worlds of the books I read.
I have done this several times before on my blog, but it’s been a hot minute since my last one that I thought I’d bring kiss, marry, kill back! If you don’t know what that is, you choose three people (in my case, characters) and say who you would kiss, marry, and kill out of the three. Just so we don’t have any repeats from previous posts, I’d thought that we’d use characters from the books I’ve read so far this year.
The character pool consists of characters from the following books:
- We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal
- Geekerella by Ashley Poston
- The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
- House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas
- Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin
- Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell
Rather than put the characters’ names on slips of paper and shake them up in a cup like I’ve done in the past, I’ve decided to write down a numbered list with all the main characters names (or who I thought was relevant) and use a random number generator to pick which characters are pitted against each other in each round.
Honestly, enough talk. Let’s go on to the game!

Bound by blood.
Tempted by desire.
Unleashed by destiny.
Bryce Quinlan had the perfect life—working hard all day and partying all night—until a demon murdered her closest friends, leaving her bereft, wounded, and alone. When the accused is behind bars but the crimes start up again, Bryce finds herself at the heart of the investigation. She’ll do whatever it takes to avenge their deaths.
Hunt Athalar is a notorious Fallen angel, now enslaved to the Archangels he once attempted to overthrow. His brutal skills and incredible strength have been set to one purpose—to assassinate his boss’s enemies, no questions asked. But with a demon wreaking havoc in the city, he’s offered an irresistible deal: help Bryce find the murderer, and his freedom will be within reach.
As Bryce and Hunt dig deep into Crescent City’s underbelly, they discover a dark power that threatens everything and everyone they hold dear, and they find, in each other, a blazing passion—one that could set them both free, if they’d only let it.
With unforgettable characters, sizzling romance, and page-turning suspense, this richly inventive new fantasy series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas delves into the heartache of loss, the price of freedom—and the power of love.

Most Anticipated Releases of 2020
I know we’re already a month and a half into 2020, but I still wanted to create a post fangirling over the books I’m excited about that’s coming out this year. I’m not going to include any books that have already been released this year in between January 1 and February 16 (the day I’m writing this post) because technically they’re not anticipated releases anymore.
Because some of these books I’m going to be talking about is not the first book in its series, I hid all the blurbs in a drop down that you can click to reveal just so I don’t accidentally spoil anyone who doesn’t want to be spoiled.
Anywho, let’s get excited about some new books!
