Bring Me Their Hearts by Sara Wolf

Zera’s heart is in a glass jar belonging to a witch, and the only way to get it back and reclaim her freedom is to exchange it with a prince’s.

You know what sucks? When a book could have a name that perfectly embodies it but it can’t because it’s already taken and a bestseller (*cough Heartless cough*) so it has to take on a really weird long winded one instead (like Bring Me Their Hearts, when really it’s just one heart?). Honestly, Entangled should have just gone with The Heartless, but I can see why they didn’t. It just sucks.

Anyway, after reading the beautiful-but-super-bleak Cruel Prince, I wanted something light and sassy, and this book was IT. It pushes all the right buttons of traditional tropes in all the fun ways and I enjoyed it immensely. It had an interesting blend between magic and tech, and I really loved the characters. Everyone had their own goals and took significant plot-defining steps towards them, which is something rare to see with secondary characters in YA. Also queer and disabled rep – yes please!

I will definitely be picking up the next book, though since this was an ARC (thanks Netgalley!) it’s going to be a while before it comes out. Overall, I loved it and I’m excited for more!
