I previously read one of the author‘s other books, Eva Evergreen, Semi Magical Witch, and absolutely loved it. I was very excited to read this one since it acts as a prequel to the Eva Evergreen books. Unfortunately, I didn‘t like this book as much as Eva Evergreen.

This is a Cinderella retelling and because of that, the book felt constrained plot wise.

3.5⭐️ I read it for a number of reasons, namely because I had heard about the subject of the novel on one of my numerous book podcasts. I thought the book was ok, despite the subject matter. #2022 #bookreview #bookstagram #historicalfiction #fiction #ebook #overbookedclub

The premise is the classic romance trope, marriage of convenience. However, it takes places when the marriage of convenience is nearing its end, which is a cool twist to the trope. I found that twist very refreshing and it offered a unique perspective to the trope. I enjoyed seeing the main characters discover their true feelings for each other.

The poem was short yet so impactful. It beautifully highlighted the struggles of natural hair as well as the complexities of being Afro-Latinidad. It‘s personal, real, and authentic, which are all qualities I look for when reading poetry.

I found this one via a #bookstagram recommendation. I read the blurb but still had no idea what to expect. As an audiobook it was beautiful. It took a moment to find the rhythm of the book and it was hard to parse out poem from memory sometimes, but I enjoyed this read. The poems were beautiful. I never thought about how the voices and lives of women from the past can often only be found within the words of men.
