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: Reputation by Lex Croucher

Audio Review: Reputation by Lex Croucher

One reviewer said that this book is “Mean Girls meets Bridgerton,” and I have never seen a more accurate description/comparison for a book. Reputation by is a Regency-era inspired book that reads more like a contemporary YA. I don’t typically read contemporary YA, though sometimes the drama is compelling enough to keep me engrossed as […]

Review: Romancing the Duke by Tessa Dare

Review: Romancing the Duke by Tessa Dare

I am so glad this was May’s #COYER book club pick! I’m not sure I would’ve picked it up otherwise. Romancing the Duke by is a historical romance loosely based on Beauty and the Beast. I’m a sucker for all BATB retellings so I was really excited to dive into it. Y’all I turned on […]

Review: Jackaby by William Ritter

Review: Jackaby by William Ritter

This book was a pleasant surprise. Jackaby by is the first in the series by the same name. Set during the Victorian age, I expected a freaky paranormal mystery that would leave me jumping at noises and leaving all the lights on at night. That is not at all what this is! Jackaby is a […]
