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?

Brava, Ms. Marchetta, you've done it again!

Finnikin of the Rock  - Melina Marchetta

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.
