Everlasting Rose
Everlasting Rose | Dhonielle Clayton
23 posts | 20 read | 25 to read
In this sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller, Camille, her sister Edel, and her guard and new love Remy must race against time to find Princess Charlotte. Sophia's Imperial forces will stop at nothing to keep the rebels from returning Charlotte to the castle and her rightful place as queen. With the help of an underground resistance movement called The Iron Ladies-a society that rejects beauty treatments entirely-and the backing of alternative newspaper The Spider's Web, Camille uses her powers, her connections and her cunning to outwit her greatest nemesis, Sophia, and restore peace to Orleans.

Hi strangers! Work has been crazy and my reading has taken a hit as a result. Doesn‘t help that I couldn‘t find anything that really grabbed my attention so I bailed on a few titles. This hold came in and got me out of my slump. Made great headway during a 4 hour drive today. #currentlylistening #audiobook

Crazeedi Great to see you here, been wondering if you were doing ok! Have a good weekend! 5d

I enjoyed getting to know Edel better but Camille continues to annoy me. It‘s a well built world but there are aspects that were lacking explanations.

TBH, I didn't enjoy as much as the 1st. I still love the world, which is as lovely as it is treacherous. But the plot meanders a lot w/o a real emotional latch. Camille travels for most of it, w/o gaining or accomplishing much. The depth & darkness from The Belles are less prominent here. While the Iron Ladies are interesting new adds, we don't spend enough time w/them. I know there's a 3rd book coming, so maybe I try reading the 3 books together.

GondorGirl I gave up after the first book. I loved the premise, but I couldn't seem to get emotionally invested into any of it. 😕 1w
jmtrivera @GondorGirl That's how I felt about this one, but I read it thinking that this was the end. When we interviewed the author, she told us there would be a third, so I'm hoping that my enthusiasm will return for the next one. 1w

I enjoyed this second book in the Belles series, which continued the world-building. In this world, beauty is a commodity and only Belles have the magic. I felt the ending closed out the story but am told there is another book coming that will focus on Edel, one of the side characters, which I would definitely read.

Meh. Meeeeh. I kept reading because I kinda like the 'verse and I /really/ liked the first book, but if this hadn't been a sequel I wouldn't have read past the first 50 pages. I'm glad I read it, but I wouldn't do it again. If that makes sense? Idek anymore.

So. Much. Purple. Prose. And. Similies. Usually, I can ignore it, but literally every description is written like that and it got so tiring. Also, I bailed at 91 pages because nothing interesting happened and the thing between Camilla and Remy was just so sudden and ugh. Very disappointed. The first one hooked me and was so, so good. But this? 😣

IDK wassup with these books. Puffy stories aren‘t my thing, but then here‘s this. Case in point, teacup pets. What‘s the point? Except now I want one. Also, I have to deal with the tension of thinking beauty standards suck, and yet how fun is it to play! My brain space doesn‘t have time for the Belles, yet what a lovely, lazy read.

Another dark, intriguing book about beauty set in a world that seems idyllic but is rotten just beneath the surface. In book two that rottenness is in full view and I had a hard time putting is down! I love all the lush descriptions and it was nice getting to see more of the world. I‘m interested in seeing where the author takes book 3!

A baroque, full-speed, horror-filled sequel to the first book. There‘s a lot of running around and speechifying at srsly idiotic times. Also, Sophia is just so BAD and most of the remaining Belles are just so decent and GOOD and EXPLOITED for their BLOOOOOOD. I guess this one annoyed me some, but I also ended up liking it OK. Whew. 3.5⭐️

Did I mercilessly grab this off the new books cart before a teen could check it out? Yes, and I have no regrets.

The part of me that reads horror for coping with anxiety and the part of me that loves flowery prose were very conflicted at being involved at the same time during The Belles.

A sick Toddlersaurus means digging up the Christmas specials and Daniel Tiger and watching them pretty much non-stop all day. But I at least got to start this one.
