This was such a cute and heartwarming read!

The story is told in dual timelines, one set in 1987 and the other in the 1930s/1940s. The dual timelines was executed well.

As for the characters, I loved the three main characters, Harlow, Matt, and Tuesday. Harlow was my favorite. I enjoyed seeing her character grow and take charge of her life.

This book has the same cozy and heartwarming vibes as its predecessor. There‘s lots of discussion on reading and books which I loved. As a huge bibliophile, I related a lot to those parts. The book also has a strong emotional core, especially in the second half.

I am such a huge Disney Descendants fan (I‘ve seen all the movies and have read all the books in this series) and this book made me so excited for the new movie.

We are introduced to Red, the daughter of the Queen of Hearts. I loved her. She is so different from the VKs in the sense that she isn‘t trying to be evil or wicked.

First off, this book is hilarious. It‘s very satirical and pokes a lot of fun at own society. Parts of the story were reminiscent of the pandemic and how some political leaders and society handled it. I found it very clever. One of the funniest parts of the book was ogre speak, which was essentially really foul and rude language.

First off, Colin calls Penelope “the most remarkable woman in the world” (pg. 423). I whole heartedly agree. The fact that she was Lady Whistledown for 10 years is impressive. What a smart woman!

I liked Penelope and Colin together. The fact that they were both writers was really cute.

This was such a joy to read! This manga is seriously the cutest thing ever. I was dying over how adorable it was.

Like the title suggests, the main characters are opposites. Suzuki is outgoing and popular, while Tani is more reserved and keeps to himself. I loved seeing their relationship blossom. Their first date was a standout.

The storyline is fairly simple (basically the main character is in search of a boyfriend), but I didn‘t mind. Less is more in this case.

As for the characters, I really liked the love interest, Eiji. He was so sweet and protective towards the main character.

The best part of this book was definitely the art style. It was so dreamy.

First off, there‘s so much Filipino representation in this book. I loved it. The book captures so much of Filipino culture and family life. As a Filipino American, I found it very relatable (especially in regards to how stubborn Filipino mothers can be).

Like her memoir, Dolly‘s responses to her readers are very conversational. Reading them feels like talking to an old friend. Her advice is very practical and real, but she‘s never judgmental. She seems to really understand what her readers are asking and gives relatable advice.
