Book Review: The Faerie Prince by Rachel Morgan

Author: Rachel Morgan
Series: Creepy Hollow #2
Audience: Young Adult
Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal
Publisher: Self Published
Release Date:  May 1st 2013
My Rating: 4 Cups

Blurb (from Goodreads):
Action, intrigue, and romance to swoon for!

With graduation just weeks away, guardian trainee Violet Fairdale is determined to claim the top spot in her class. But first, she'll have to survive her final assignment--and the guy she's been forced to partner with.

Her confusing feelings for Ryn aren't the only thing making life difficult, though. With enchanted storms wreaking havoc in the fae realm, a murder within the Guild, and an Unseelie prince still determined to possess Vi's special magic, graduation is about to become the least of her problems.
It's graduation time for Violet and Ryn, and things aren't exactly going as planned. That's right, guys, me and Jamsu are back with another buddy read, this time for book 2 in the Creepy Hollow series by Rachel Morgan. I enjoyed the second book a lot more and, unlike before, I was completely taken by surprise by certain events. Let me tell you all about it.

July is officially the best thing to ever happen to 2020. When I wrote my Bay Yanlış review I knew there was a chance I'd have another TV Madness out this week. I am here to confirm that suspicion. Because I just watched the premiere of Sen Çal Kapımı and I am in love. Yes, in case you're wondering, I'm writing this review right after I finished watching the show. I just cannot wait for tomorrow (which is when you guys will be reading this). 

I was fully prepared to watch the show just for Ayşe Üner Kutlu, the writer of the show. Ayşe is actually the original writer of Erkenci Kuş, and her episodes (1 - 17, 39 - 46) are just fantastic. That isn't to say the other episodes aren't good, but Ayşe knows her romance. As an avid romance reader myself, I hold most of the romance shows I watch to a very high standard. Which is why I knew I was going to watch whatever it is that she wrote, and probably even love it. Well... I was right!

TV Madness: Bay Yanlış Bölüm 1 & 2 Review

Genre: Rom - Com | Channel: Fox Türkiye | Director: Deniz Yorulmazer
 Starring: Can YamanÖzge Gürel
Summary (source: IMDB):
Özgür (Can Yaman) is a very wealthy restaurant owner and living a sloppy but happy go lucky life, and does not believe in love. Ezgi (Özge Gürel) is now tired of wrong relationships and is determined to have a proper relationship and get married. Seeing that Ezgi is not successful in the relationship matters, Özgür begins to mentor her about relationships and gives her tactics to get the man she likes.

If you're following me on social media you know I've discovered a new passion: Turkish TV shows, also known as Dizis. It all started because of the quarantine and me discovering the romantic comedy Erkenci Kuş (Early Bird in English). I fell in love with the rom-com genre all over again because of that show, and when I heard that Can Yaman, the actor who played the hero in this show, had a new Dizi coming up this summer I knew I had to watch it. And because I truly adore the show I've decided to share my love for it on my blog. Today I'll be reviewing the first 2 episodes, but starting next week I'll be reviewing one episode per week.

Let's get started, shall we?

Jamsu and I had to much fun during our Vampire Academy/Bloodlines buddy read, that we decided to continue knocking off a few books from our TBRs that we had in common. So we picked The Faerie Guardian and let me tell you, I had a ton of fun.
