Once Upon A Broken Heart
Once Upon A Broken Heart | Stephanie Garber
47 posts | 40 read | 38 to read
From the #1 Sunday Times bestselling author of the Caraval series, the first book in a new series about love, curses, and the lengths that people will go to for happily ever after. Evangeline Fox was raised in her beloved father's curiosity shop, where she grew up on legends about immortals, like the tragic Prince of Hearts. She knows his powers are mythic, his kiss is worth dying for, and that bargains with him rarely end well. But when Evangeline learns that the love of her life is about to marry another, she becomes desperate enough to offer the Prince of Hearts whatever he wants in exchange for his help to stop the wedding. The prince only asks for three kisses. But after Evangeline's first promised kiss, she learns that the Prince of Hearts wants far more from her than she'd pledged. And he has plans for Evangeline that will either end in the greatest happily ever after, or the most exquisite tragedy . . .

“I believe there are far more possibilities than happily ever after or tragedy. Every story has the potential for infinite endings.”

Evangeline Fox grew up hearing legends of immortals, like the tragic story of the Prince of Hearts. 🤴🏼💔 Where his powers are that of mythic proportions and his kiss is worth dying for… 💋

I was honestly surprised that I enjoyed this book so much -my fantasy preferences strongly run primarily in shifter books-but I‘ve already placed a hold on Caraval to read them all! The characters were intriguing as was the universe itself. It was delightful!

I read 18 books in April.

This was the worst reading slump month I‘ve had in years.

Here are nine 4.5 - 5 star reads.

Three were ARCs, two were Libby loans and four were from my personal stash. (My goal is to read more of my own books)

April was a mixed bag of fun! I could easily recommend all of these books to someone.

What an absolutely stunning fairytale. I fell in love with this one so quickly. The characters are so charming and the plot was fantastic :) took a little longer to get through due to covid but I'm glad I had it with me to get me through

Magical, witty, and engaging - this is a must read. I might consider waiting to read this until the next book is out to quell the heartache (lol, get it?) caused by the cliffhanger ending. This story is a great addition to the Caraval legacy, and I look forward to seeing more of my favorite antihero

🎧 I hate that I loved this book. 😆

Very fairy tale-like so don‘t expect reality and know that most of your predictions will probably be correct. Team Jax❣️

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

GondorGirl These books are like fantasy trash. They're over the top and kind of ridiculous, but you can't stop reading them. Also, #TeamJax 4mo

I didn‘t remember the Caraval series well enough for me to spot all the connections, and I couldn‘t really connect with Evangeline. Pretty forgettable, on the whole, but maybe the second in the series will pick up the pace and excitement.

This book was pure cotton candy, bubblegum fun! I love the world of Caraval and this was a great addition. The descriptions are magical and I feel like there was a missed opportunity to put a unicorn in this story. It felt like reading a Disney princess story. I'm using this for #pop22 fulfills prompt from previous challenge #prettiestontbr #pantone2022 #popsugar

This was so much fun! I don‘t typically read YA or fantasy but this was such a treat I think I need to! While it did have romance in it that aspect didn‘t overwhelm the story (which I appreciated) and was more of a catalyst for the adventure and craziness that ensued. The narrator was great and it ended on a cliffhanger. I am really excited to see where the story goes next! 🌟🌟🌟🌟

I'm definitely feeling better than I was, but despite that I'm still coughing a lot, achey, and so so tired. 🤒😴 I'm trying to tell myself that any progress is progress, even if it doesn't feel like much. But I'm frustrated to not be all better yet. All this bed rest however means that I can read and read and read (when I'm not sleeping!) with my kitties and drink endless amounts of tea! Started this one today and am loving it already! 💕📚💕

Oh my, a must read, especially if you‘re already a Caravel fan! What is the Prince of Hearts up to now and what does Evangeline‘s story have to do with it? I devoured the book and can‘t wait for the sequel.

4/5. I love Stephanie Garber‘s writing, as well as the world she has created. However, I didn‘t find this book to be half as engrossing and immersive as the “Caraval” trilogy. Still, I feel like it will pick up in the sequels, as it definitely started to get much better towards the end.

I loved being back in the same universe as Caraval, but at a different time, getting to know the story of Jacks and Evangeline. Stephanie Garber builds such unique worlds and has a beautiful way of writing that I find myself getting lost in each of her books. 4⭐️

Well I suck at posting what I have been reading. I had a four day weekend so here the the stack of books that I read/listened to. Can you tell that I did nothing but read and relax over those 4 days. My favorites were the tagged book, Show Me a Sign, Set Me Free and You‘d Be Home Now. Unfortunately it is back to reality tomorrow. 😭😭😭 the tagged book was my #bookspin for this month and Ghost Squad was my #doublebookspin for the month.

Love hate relationship with this book; I really hate Evangeline; she thinks she knows, when she totally doesn‘t. Then she says she shouldn‘t and wouldn‘t second guess Marisol….even though she‘s never actually doubted her to begin with. And also, if all you want is the dude to love you, take the win! I can‘t even with her. But, I loved everything else and I need to know what happens next because Jacks. All the feels for him.

Like her previous books, this had all the magic and wonder I enjoyed from her Caraval series. I loved Jacks and Evangeline. Next year can't come soon enough, I need the second book, preferably now?

When I requested this ARC, I hadn't realised it was about Jacks from the Caravel trilogy by the same author. Jacks is an intriguing character, & although I was a little lukewarm about the original books, I really enjoyed this one. The world-building is detailed, & the chemistry between Evangeline & Jacks slowly builds. I can't wait for the second book. 4.5🌟

Thanks to NetGalley & publishers, Hodder & Stoughton, for the opportunity to read an ARC.

I really enjoyed the new Stepanie Garber book, set in the world of Caraval, but with a new heroine, Evangeline Fox. It also has Jack's, Prince of Hearts. It makes me want to reread Caraval again. Evangeline asks Jacks for help in stopping the wedding of her love Luc. But she must give three kisses whenever Jacks needs her to do so. Since it just came out will have to wait ages for the next one. Luckily I have loads of books to keep me going!

This one expands on the world & characters Garber introduced in her Caraval trilogy & it is a fun story about what happens when happily ever after is elusive & what people will do to get their elusive happy ending. What they‘ll do, as readers learn, is make questionable deals with the wrong people, go on adventures, make new friends & dangerous enemies, uncover secrets & discover lost prophecies. A quick, fun read. On sale 9/28/21.

So the thing that I love about this author is that she basically makes everything up herself instead of borrowing from older stories. Every bit of this book is exciting. And it ends on a cliffhanger so I'm looking forward to reading the next one.

After finishing the Caraval series, I noted in a review that I wanted a book about Jacks. My wish was granted…sort of. This spin off from Caraval centers on Evangeline Fox, who makes an ill-advised deal with the Prince of Hearts. He‘s a major player in this book and I liked Evangeline‘s story, but I was left wanting even more of Jacks. Looking forward to the sequel. Also…I reread all of Caraval before opening my deck of destiny. Beautiful cards!

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I don't know that I hate it, but it is certainly underwhelming. The plot sounds Caraval adjacent, too. 1y
