Tellulah Darling writes YA & New Adult romantic comedy because her first kiss sucked and she's compensating.
Sassy girls. Swoony boys. What could go wrong?
Sometimes I'm a little slow on the uptake. In my defence, I hear about so many books. Here's the thing, I'd read Marchetta's Jellicoe Road and adored it. It shook me up in all the best ways. So I was totally up for reading anything else by her. At the same time, I kept hearing raves about Finnikin. DId I put it together that she was the author? Well, yeah. About three days ago.
At which point I raced to the library to snag it. Oh joy. Oh happiness. Straight up fantasy quest to reclaim a kingdom. Which I'm all over. But what makes this shine are the characters. Could I be more in love with Finn and Evanjalin? Nope. There wasn't a weak character in the entire book.
This was a hot damn, one sitting, give me the next book now read. Brava, Ms. Marchetta, you've done it again.
