I give this standalone happily-ever-after contemporary a 4.4/5 stars. The story by Melissa Ferguson is in first person, present tense and has an adorable office romance trope. As much as I love novels with two points of view, it’s refreshing that this one sticks with only Savannah’s POV, which is a necessity for the plot.Continue reading “Review #261”

If I could give one book a 6/5 stars it’d be this one. This fantasy retelling was short, spunky, and beautifully written. Here are my live thoughts while reading: Wow! Voice, voice and more voice. The first chapter was spunky, unique & totally set the tune and vibe of this feminist retelling. I adore fairytaleContinue reading “Review #258”

I gave this contemporary (suspense?) a 3.8/5 stars. There’s two points of view of Meg and Kat and it also hops around in a specific decade of their lives. Here are my thoughts while reading: The story opens with tons of questions. Kat is possibly stalking Meg, who has been under the radar for years.Continue reading “Review #257”

I gave this historical fantasy a 4.2/5 stars It’s the first of a four book series. The romance was clean but sparse overall since the plot focused on saving her friend from the villain and learning about her powers. There were a few times while reading that I felt pulled in too many directions andContinue reading “Review #255”

I gave this retelling from the Beast’s point of view a solid 4.2/5 stars. The only reason why it wasn’t higher was because of the nonstop head hopping. The prose of ‘The Beast Within’ felt a bit removed because it was third person and there was some head hopping I didn’t love. But because IContinue reading “Review #254”

I gave this FF romantasy a 4.9/5 stars. I loved the fairytale mixture of a Cinderella story turned Sleeping Beauty. And the fact that it was all from a villain’s point of view was excellent. Here are my thoughts love while reading: Chapter 1 was pure perfection. Alyce concocted an illegal “ugly” potion for aContinue reading “Review #251”

I rated this Robin Hood feminist retelling a 4.6/5 stars. I believe it’s a standalone but would read more from this author. Here are my thoughts while reading: Chapter one is full of urgency with Isabelle in custody and freed from her mother who holds tons of secrets in her pocket. She is told toContinue reading “Review #250”

I rated “Sky in the Deep” by Adrienne Young a generous 4.5/5 stars. This was a YA epic fantasy with a dash of clean romance fade to black. I loved the consistency that we stayed in Eelyn’s point of view the whole time in first person, past-tense narrative. The bonus scene of Fiske thrown inContinue reading “Review #248”
