February 2023: This was an interesting and mostly fun read. The small bit of romance in it, however, was confusing and felt unnecessary to me.

January 2024: thought I didn’t just love this the first time I read it, but a year later I still find myself thinking about it often. I do love the world the author created and I’m excited to reread this and dig into the next book in the series as well.

I couldn't help but be charmed by this tale. Emily Wilde is a curmudgeonly academic on a research expedition to study the faeries of an isolated, northern European island and is none too pleased when her scholarly rival shows up "to help". Emily, for all of her expertise and determined independence, can't seem to keep herself from getting tangled in fairy enchantments which require the assistance of the one person she'd really rather not ask. Overall, I enjoyed this light story with its hints of romance and will definitely be reading the sequel.… (more)

This was one of the best books of 2023, and now I understand why. I also enjoyed this book a lot. I was immediately captivated by the descriptive writing, and I loved the fact that it was written in a journal format. My favorite character was definitely Wendell, but I also loved Emily too. I love the banter and romance between them. The plot of the book keeps you interested, and I really loved the all the fae information and stories. The author does a great job at using the footnotes to enhance the story, however, you don’t have to read them to understand the story, so if you don’t like footnotes, you can ignore them. I’m excited to see what kind of adventures the next book takes our two characters on.… (more)

This book was exactly the slow burn I needed. I can't begin to talk about how many times I laughed out loud or put my hand over my heart because Fawcett wrote something I've thought for a long time. All of the reveals are wonderful, and the prose is gorgeous. I didn't know I needed a novel that was both dark and lovely at the same time. Can't wait for the sequel.
