I’ve been excitedly waiting to get my hands on a copy of this book, so I was so pleased when I did. I’d heard nothing but good things about it, and they were all true. It definitely lived up to my expectations and it was truly a delightful story. There is something to be said for a book that gives you so much and does it well! I felt that this book hit all the right marks and is a four star read.
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this book, and I’m still not quite sure what I read, mostly because I felt I wasn’t totally liking the book at times. There were parts I really enjoyed and others I was just “meh” on. Overall, I think it was a good book, but nothing I thought was totally memorable for me personally. In the end I unfortunately don’t have much to say about the book as I felt that it was good for passing time, and a cute read.
I got really tired of retellings, especially fantasy ones several months ago, and so I hesitated to read this one at the time. I am SO GLAD that I waited. Because I feel that I really wouldn’t have enjoyed this book if I had read it when I first wanted to. (Okay, February, but still.) I enjoyed this book, and I felt that it was a read I had fun with, and one that I liked. This is a 3.5 stars for me.
I’m always looking for a funny, feel good romance that is queer. I so very much wanted to love this book, but I only ended up liking it.
First off, the cover was adorable and the title was amazing. That convinced me to request the book, and then the description…it seemed like it would be the perfect book for me.
I have never read anything by this author before, so I was stepping into the unknown. I like to expand my horizons in what I read, and this book seemed to fit the bill. It was a quick read, and it was overall satisfying to me.
First off, I want everyone to read this book the moment it comes out. It deserves so much love. I absolutely adored it. I was grinning from ear to ear while reading it, but I was also frowning and honestly I had such an amazing time reading it.
