We decided that were going to write a post about the books we read, where we found them and what our favorite was. The other website name is books, life, reading. And we want to give you something more personal then only the reviews.
I’m going to talk a little about the 24 post I placed from the moment we started. This are a lot of books, to be honest I almost like all the books I read. I never start reading books I don’t like. To choose between these books is hard and I don’t really know which one is my favorite.
So I’m first going to tell you something about me and my favorite genre.
I think you guessed it already, I really love fantasy. And then the magic, fae, witches, dragons kind.
I read other books to, I have, I think, read two thrillers and that was it, still other books….
Reading these kind of books are an escape for me, getting away from my life and getting some peace in my head. I can’t read any other genre because I just can’t.

Instinctual, Rise of the Iliri book two by Auryn Hadley.
This is the second time I’ve read these books, and I still love them, fell right into the story again. It felt like reading for the first time. So good job Auryn.
Sal earned her place in the Black Blades, no surprise with being full Iliri. She now needs to find it in herself to become the Kaisae that is not the only thing the CFC knows what they are.
Now she needs to find her place in her family, how to make it work with two lovers and one being her superior, show the CFC how good they are without being hanged. And the humans aren’t happy about it. They get kicked in the back many times and they only want to protect what is theirs. And keep Terric from their doorsteps.
There is a bunch of steel heading to Angalia and they are the best to stop the load. Only the parliament thinks they can use this mission to let them fail, to show how bad the Iliri are and that humans are better. Not knowing that by doing so, they only strengthen the group of Iliri, making their bond stronger and their family more. They get the order to find two more Black Blades and finding them can be hard when everyone is working against you.
Then there is the part of her sleeping with Bleac and Jase and parliament is planning on meddling in her love life, because she has ears on her head and proves over and over that she is better than the humans. They keep throwing shit their way, keep trying to pull them down by not giving them more information over missions they need to do. Not only the bad intel makes it harder to work, they soldiers they have to work with, who hate them keep putting up road blocks, keep trying to get them in bad light keep trying to get them killed.
How are they keeping Terric from their doorstep, how are they fighting for their survival and those of all the other Iliri and crossbreds around, how are they going to fight against their own and make sure they all, human and Iliri survive.
Then there is her new mission, secure an alliance with Angelina, and this one is without her family. Only Jase to support her and no Blaec to fall back on. How is she going to do that?
They keep saying to Sal, trust you instinct, and listen to your instinct. We do what is natural.
