Confessions of a Bibliophile

An aspiring writer and bookstore employee with an incredibly bad book-buying habit... I'll read just about anything (so long as it will appeal to my interests in some way), but my main loves are YA and sci-fi/fantasy. I also like quirky history and science books and will book nerd. A lot. Currently in the process of weeding out my personal library. Find me on Twitter @princess_starr or check out my YA book, Snowfall, on Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/240027

Tithe: A Modern Fairy Tale (The Modern Faerie Tales, #1)

Tithe: A Modern Fairy Tale (The Modern Faerie Tales, #1) - Holly Black I really liked the introduction to the world of “Modern Faerie” in the book. However, I had a hard time getting into Kaye’s story and her conflict with her true nature didn’t seem to have any consequences. However, the Unseelie/Seelie court plotline fascinated me, as did the consequences that came out of the titular tithe. It did a great job of setting up the plot for the trilogy, and it did make me want to pick up the next two books in the series. Also, I love that it shows that the courts’ nature aren’t as black and white as mortals like to believe.
