    "But what would we be, my darling Ksenia, if we could not spin love into webs far stronger than spider silk?" Never-Contented Things is a dark tale about different kinds of love, infatuation, and the lengths a person would go to realize their obsession. And it's told from three ...

    This is how you do scary fairies. I really enjoyed this, although it was hard to get through at times. 1) The subject matter was occasionally a trifle disturbing (not necessarily a bad thing). 2) The paragraphs tended to be long, with dense, flowery writing. The descriptions were pr...

    Also available on the WondrousBooks blog. " What did I just read? This book is like a nightmare. I'm being literal. It's like a weird, disturbing, nonsensical nightmare, with aimless running around the woods, dead kids, legs growing out of walls and people speaking things that m...

    I was the one who said the magic words, and now we're all living under a spell. This is one of those ratings where I'm being objective, because though it's not an easy, or entirely enjoyable read for me, I was still very much in awe of some of the writing here, and the subjects tack...

    Never-Contented Things by Sarah Porter 4.25 stars Ksenia and Josh are the odd foster kids who are a little two close for people who are being raised as siblings. When they encounter a Prince and his fairy in the forest where they usually drink and party, they are sucked into a da...

    This is a dark, creepy book. It's not horror but it's skirting the line. While this is clearly written in the tone of YA/Teen it is maybe only appropriate for about 15+ due to the sex scenes and gore. Sarah Porter takes us into the realm of the Fae (without actually ever referencing fa...

    DNF at 34% I don?t normally do books about faeries unless they have Holly Black?s name on them, but that cover and synopsis really sucked me in. And I?m not sure how to review this book. This story was a struggle from the beginning. I had heard poor reviews from friends, b...

    Reading this book was a big challenge for me. First of all, I deceived myself by believing Never-Contended Things would be similar to The Wicked King. But Never-Contended Things is a story under an absolutely different sauce. It's a tale of two foster kids Josh and Ksenia, who love eac...

    ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. DNF at 46% I feel like I?ve been scammed. The synopsis of Never-Contented Things sells something that it?s not true: a fantasy story. So imagine my surprise when I started it and I found myself re...

    DNF @ 50%. Y?all, I had to do myself a solid and pull the plug on this. I legitimately felt like I was on heavy drugs reading this, it?s such a weird story. Just when I thought it couldn?t get weirder it did, and not in a ?this is unique? type of way, it?s a ?what the...

    I was sent this book as an advanced copy by the publisher via NetGalley for reviewing purposes, but all opinions are my own. 4.5 stars, rounded up after careful consideration. This book's biggest flaw was the way it was marketed. First things first, I loved this book. I thin...

    Considering this has been one of my most anticipated books lately, I did not think I would end up writing a review for it saying it was my most disappointing read of the year, yet here I am. I have honestly been putting off writing this review because I didn't want to, but now I have l...

    I won't be officially rating this because I didn't finish it or read at least 70% of it. Unfortunately, I could not finish this book. I really tried, I was so excited for a new fae book. This really barely had fae and I've been told it never mentions the word once all the way throu...

    Let's get one thing out of the way first: this is not like The Cruel Prince. The synopsis might make you think it is, but there's no court intrigue, no hate-to-love romance, and they are just very different stories with completely different messages. Going into this expecting them t...

    I completely forgot to write the review! This does not mean that I did not like the book, on the contrary. I thought I had already written positive things and liked them the most. Hey, it means I can come back now, after a week, and see if the book is as good as I remembered it. Let's...

    3.5 ?If you let yourself feel how empty the sky is, you know you?re always falling into an enormous hole.? To start, if you are looking for a book like a certain cruel, wicked, and fae driven YA series (I was), this book will NOT make you happy. If you are looking to read some...

    This is a book about the attempt to find relationships and connections when in circumstances where it is hard to develop either, and how that can lead both to unhealthy behavior and to real love ? it simply depends how it is expressed. Don?t look at the average rating yet. We?...

    If you?re looking for a story like The Cruel Prince you won?t find it here. This is a tale of faerie but it is not a Disney fairy-tale with beautiful magical creatures; the faerie are most definitely Unseelie, they are cruel, never-contented beings, far from human and out for the h...

    4 stars It's the nightmare in the corner of your eye when you're about to fall asleep. It's the daydream that starts out innocuous and turns sour before you realize your own train of thought. It's twisted, it's stunningly inventive in its nightmares, and the portrayal of its charact...

    This is probably the most petty book review I?ll ever write but... this book was such a let down for me. I truly hope that I was just in a weird mood when I read it and that all of you love it when it's released. I really wanted to love it but I didn't. One of the main characters, na...
