Review: Always Be My Duchess by Amalie Howard

Review: Always Be My Duchess by Amalie Howard

Always Be My Duchess by is the first in her historical romance series . Following a ballerina barely making ends meet and a duke in need of a fiancé, the story is reminiscent of classic 90s romcoms and would make Nora Ephron proud. There is so much to love about this story: fake relationship, grumpy-sunshine […]

Audio Review: The Midnight Library by Matt Haig

I’ll be the first to admit that this book wasn’t at ALL what I was expecting, but I enjoyed it all the same. When reading the blurb the first time, I thought “cool, a sci-fi novel that lets you slide through different dimensions and times.” I think I was expecting something along the lines of […]

Review: Feather and Flame by Livia Blackburne

Review: Feather and Flame by Livia Blackburne

I am really enjoying The Queen’s Council! Each book is about a different Disney princess, what happens after their happily ever after and end credits roll, and a continuation of their stories. Feather and Flame by continues Mulan’s story, picking up several years after she saved the emperor. Action packed and full of adventure, the […]

Review: Bravely by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: Bravely by Maggie Stiefvater

Absolutely loved this continuation of Merida’s story! Bravely by isn’t a retelling of Disney’s Brave, but a continuation, picking up a few years after the events of the movie. Merida is stuck, not changing, and so is the rest of Castle Dunbroch. They are comfortable in their routines, living their lives in a bubble, ignoring […]

Audio Review: Inheritance by Katharine McGee

I have a confession to make. I don’t typically read series novellas. Usually I skip them and only read if I’m super invested in the series. Inheritance by is a prequel novella to her series which finally gives readers the full inside scoop of the infamous graduation party night. This night is the catalyst for […]

You know the saying “a train wreck you can’t look away from”? That is this book to a tee! I devoured it, unable to bring myself to put it down.
