Almost done and so glad that my hubby convinced me to try it again. Don't love The female narrator and some of the way they do the narration switches bother me, but Luke Daniels as always is amazing

MarriedtoMrT Good luck!🍀 2y
bookelf221 @MarriedtoMrT thanks!! We've been trying to guess if she's ready and my gut says she is, so I'm librarian-ing it up and researching before we begin 2y
MarriedtoMrT @bookelf221 There are a lot of good strategies out there! I bet you‘ll get a vibe from her when you start. I had one that was super easy and one that wanted to stay a baby until the bitter end. 😏 2y

I have no idea why i requested thus but I did. I expect to cry

bookelf221 Now I remember! LGBTQ characters are the reason I requested it. 90 pages in and it's good, first 20 pages or so were hard to read. 2y

Love, love, love this book! It was an excellent transition back into ya from adult romance. The story is compelling with some slight twists that a seasoned reader might find predictable, but still enjoyable. #pirates #teenromance #historicalfiction

I'm only 34 minutes in, but I have to say I'm not digging this retelling. It might be the narrator, it might be the way it's written but so far I feel like it's talking down to the audience. But I will finish it

While an interesting story, I found myself despising Dani, and despising the main character is just no good.

This was a fun, rhyming book that lets you pick between the easy version (all big letters) or the harder, which includes animal facts in smaller print. The illustrations are gorgeous.

Since I'm just a big kid I decided I wanted to read a princess book. I really liked it! It ties into the movie without being a retelling of it- instead it's a completely new story!
