Four Dead Queens | Astrid Scholte

First of all: I‘m on a roll on finishing books this week and writing reviews! Okay, now onto the review!
Rating: 5/5 Stars
I really wished I read this when I got it on my Kindle earlier this year! It had excellent world building, great character development, and I loved the elements of fantasy mixed with mystery. Such a good book with lots of twists and turns.

The Testaments: A Novel | Margaret Atwood

Really enjoyed it; much easier to read than The Handmaid‘s Tale. I like how there was a familiar character that was well established in the book. Had a good pacing to the book. This was my 4th Margaret Atwood book that I‘ve read. 4⭐️ #2019 #bookstagram #bookreview #fiction #canadian #margaretatwood

Feed Me Vegan | Lucy Watson

I saw Lucy Watson's Shortcake all over #bookstagram and just had to check it out. (I read it via #kindleunlimited.) What a great, contemporary romance. I love the nuanced portrayal of the protagonist Emelia, a nurse who has been caring for Rose, an older woman whose family seldom visits. When Rose dies, Emelia suddenly has to contend with Rose's family, including her grandson Benjamin, a handsome but severe veteran. ⬇️

UnabridgedPod Emelia tries to emotionally prepare herself to leave the home she had found with Rose when she discovers that Rose had left an unconventional will that includes Emelia . . . and Benjamin.⠀

I'm a sucker for the enemies-to-lovers trope, and the great humor, careful consideration of mental health, and beautiful sense of found family here made Shortcake a perfect romantic comedy. Thank you, Bookstagram! Loved it.

Rating: 5/5
What a satisfying ending. Yes, this was a long book, but it had beautiful moments, heartbreaking moments, a lot emotions, and war all throughout the book. One of my favorites out of the series now.

While I have mixed feelings about the book, I really thought the writing was strong and the characters were well-drawn. 4⭐️ #bookstagram #bookreview #canadian #dystopia #fiction #2019

SleepyDragon Is it bad that I'm really glad my copy has a different cover? 2d
melissajayne @SleepyDragon no. My copy was issued in 1998. 2d

As a whole, I found this to be underwhelming. I had such high hopes but it didn‘t quite reach them. This book was originally published in 2008 and I felt like this was a very typical YA book from that time. There was nothing that really drew me in and made me fall in love with it. I also didn‘t feel any sort of attachment to the characters.

This book is basically a collection of quotes from famous women and a few men. The book is divided into short little chapters based on themes like being yourself and caring for the planet.

Overall, I would recommend this book to young girls and teens. I think this book would really resonate with them and would make a great gift.
