Sour

1.brutal - 3/10 - The song itself is very punk rock and is a great song for this genre, however it does not fit the style of the album. It is different instrumentation and is a completely different genre from the majority of the album.

I think that this book was great. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a little romance but also a little conflict. Anyone who likes K-pop especially will enjoy this book a ton. I think it has the perfect mix of having to choose what you love, over who you love. In this book a girl had to choose her dream of playing cello, over her special love interest. Overall, I loved reading this book and getting sucked into K-pop romance and I think anyone else who might enjoy that will love this book and I think they should read it.

Seraphina is half-dragon, and in a kingdom of deep mistrust between humans and dragons despite the peace treaty, she is in constant danger as a musician of the royal court. But when a member of the royal family is murdered and all clues points to the dragons, she discovers, along with the prince and a guard, hints of a plot to destroy the already fragile peace.

This is one of the most unique dragon books you'll ever read. This book was so lovely and charming. I loved the characters and the world building, the story was touching and the main character relatable and believable.
