*single tear* Last year, Girls of Paper and Fire came out. This year, I was lucky enough to have my request for a Girls of Storm and Shadow ARC granted by the publisher! I was super excited to receive this in the mail, so thank you Little, Brown and Co. for sending GOSAS to me.

I have mild-mild MILD spoilers mentioned here but I don’t go into plot detail.

I’m trash for both KFP and the Selection, so I’m all buckled up for the ride anyway.
