#BookClub: The Girl of Fire and Thorns by @RaeCarson @EpicReads

The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns, #1)Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness.
Elisa is the chosen one. 

But she is also the younger of two princesses, the one who has never done anything remarkable. She can't see how she ever will. 

Now, on her sixteenth birthday, she has become the secret wife of a handsome and worldly king—a king whose country is in turmoil. A king who needs the chosen one, not a failure of a princess.

And he's not the only one who seeks her. Savage enemies seething with dark magic are hunting her. A daring, determined revolutionary thinks she could be his people's savior. And he looks at her in a way that no man has ever looked at her before. Soon it is not just her life, but her very heart that is at stake.  Elisa could be everything to those who need her most. If the prophecy is fulfilled. If she finds the power deep within herself. If she doesn’t die young.  Most of the chosen do

My Review 5 Stars



I had purchased this book two years ago and completely forgot about it. Then book two came out at discount so I stabbed that one to. When I received book three for review and didn't get to it time it sucked. But then epic reads had the author on and I decided it was time to read it. And OMG! I wish I would have gotten to this sooner. This book was so good. But here are some steps if you are going to read it.

1. Have something sweet on hand for the beginning as they are consistently talking about food.

2. DO NOT read this book on an empty stomach! IT WILL NOT end well!


This book had so many twists and turns and at first I thought it was silly. A girl with a jewel in her belly. Reminded me of those wish trolls lol. But at the middle you forget and my the end you don know why you conspired the two. This was such a beautiful book with amazing characters. And two very big OMG MOMENTS!!! For those who haven't read this series. Make sure you have all three books on hand!
