3.5 stars for this one. I enjoyed the story, the writing and even characters. But some bits dragged on more than I cared for, and the romance department was lacking. I know there is another book coming out I just wish we were given a liiiittle more romance in it. All in all I enjoyed it tho.

A unique take on the three little pigs! The big bad wolf is in fact a butcher turned assassin when his mother is wrongfully slaughtered. The wolf takes matters into his own hands and targets the royals who sit on the throne (the three little pigs)

I was beyond stoked to get this book as an ARC! Magical Realism meets History in this fascinating take on the Romanov‘s exile and execution. I loved it and although it isn‘t a feel good story it was a good read. I felt something was missing and couldn‘t place my finger on it but still give it 4 crowns! #ya #magicalrealism #yareads

It was a clever, witty read that highlights the often overdone Brooding YA hero. While it was done in Broody's POV his evil ex also pops in for some sound reason.

Along the way you can find some funny quizzes and altogether a new concept for the interior of a book. Inside you'll find a guideline mixed in with a story that Broody is trying to write.

A fun read.

3.5 Savvy crowns for this read. This is what I wanted for an Alice retelling with zombies. I was let down before but this didn't disappoint. Romance? Ain't nobody got time for that, but there are hints of it in this action packed adventure!

Alice kicked butt and the cast isn't quite how you remember them..

The first book was so amazing... I read this one with a friend and I cannot help but feel disappointed. Most of it was treading water. There were some new things dribbled here and there... ultimately I was mehhh about it.

The overall idea still is worthy of 3.5 but if I were to rate this book alone? 2.5/3 crowns.

I devoured this book in 4 hours. It's quick, it's quirky and whimsical. I enjoyed the writing and the concept but and yes there is a butt some of it felt only half finished, like it was still in the rough draft process.

Still!

A book about four individuals, two separate families and one of the family members is a liaison for Goblin kind, forced to steal for them. Oh and there is a curse that disrupts the other family...
