Review: The Dragons of Nova by Elise Kova // A BRILLIANT SEQUEL

OH HELLO. I’M BACK WITH ANOTHER REVIEW AND THIS TIME IT’S THE SEQUEL TO ONE OF MY FAVOURITE READS OF THE YEAR.

Y’all can probably guess what it is by the title so I’ll not talk around it any longer—it’s The Dragons of Nova!!!

I was so pumped when I got the notification that I was approved for an ARC because I absolutely adored The Alchemists of Loom! *insert shameless self-promo here* *yes, that means you should go and read my review* *yes, this is a link*

This review will most likely consist of screaming and yelling and fangirling… but honestly, what’s new.
