Welcome to the world of the Angelheart Saga
Welcome to the website of YA author Annie Woods! This is the place to be if you’re looking for more information about the Angelheart Saga trilogy or about YA books in general.
Each month I try to summarize the reviews, book tags, bookstagram pics and other ways First Came Forever has been talked about. So, here’s the monthly wrap-up for April of the most wonderful, gushing, gorgeous reviews, the cutest and funniest book tags, author interviews and more! There’s been so much going on this month that I’ve probably missed something. In such case, please reach out to me and let me know!
Thank you to all of you who have written about the book, shared your pictures and just been so supportive and kind to me. I love and adore you all and am so grateful!

The amazing book blogger Bookyeller just did an absolutely fabulous review of First Came Forever saying that "This is my favorite YA book from now on."
Some of the other amazing things Bookyeller wrote about the book was that
"This book contains a great story and awesome characters. This is one of those unexpected books that turns out to be very impressive. This book also contains positive views about LGBT people."
"Everything about this book is plain awesome."

My Friday reading tips this week is the addictive, action-packed and intriguing Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. Believe the hype, this book is just as amazing as everyone says! The characters are some of the best written ones ever, and the plot keeps you on edge with worry and anticipation all the way to the end. I recommend this book with all my heart!

I was tagged by the lovely 5171 Miles Book Blog for the #beautifulbookcovertag, so here’s my pick: The Distance Between Us by Maggie O’Farrell.
I read this book ages ago, but it’s still one of the most beautiful covers I can think of. Looking at the cover now really makes me want to re-read it, so this book might be an upcoming Friday reading tips from me soon...
The lovely bookstagrammer Lisa (@noahjace_bookishlife), just posted the most wonderful review of First Came Forever on her bookstagram and Goodreads. Some of the amazing things she said about the book was that
“Some books make you foolishly happy. First came forever was such a book for me. It is an instant favourite.”
“The author wraps all this in a delicious original package and makes you immediately addicted to the story. It has everything you want in a love story: a handsome male protagonist, an independent strong female protagonist, secret love, dramatic plot twists, intrigue and heartbreak.”
“If you love secret romance, dramatic plots twists, intrigues and heartbreak, what are you doing? Stop reading this review and get yourself a copy!”

In light of the current #knytblus movement in Sweden, supporting the Secretary of the Swedish Academy, Sara Danius, who was forced out of her position when she tried to act on the alleged sexual misconduct of a male major cultural figure, I wanted to focus on some positive strong female role models in children’s and teen’s literature. And what better than to take on the Phenomenal Female Character Book Tag created by Nicole Pierman to shine the light on some awesome women protagonists?
Because role models are so important when growing up. If you only see and read gender stereotype stories that lack girls in prominent positions, where will you as a girl find the inspiration to dream big, to feel strong and bold, and competent to take things into your own hand and speak up for yourself?
