  1. I really need to catch up on the Snow Like Ashes trilogy. I've only read the first one, but I really enjoyed it so I don't know what's taking me so long to read the otehr two books.

    1. I was the same way. I think it's because were afraid of second book syndrome happening and ending up not liking the series. This one was pretty good though and the characters grew a lot during it in my opinion. Made it enjoyable. I hope you pick it up soon. p.s. it makes a pretty good audiobook to.
