Good one. Twists at the end really made this a dark and fun read.

The writing in this is quite well done but the characters are hard to connect to and there are trigger warnings for pretty much all the things (abuse, incest, rape). Full review at http://booknaround.blogspot.com/2022/08/review-paper-palace-by-miranda-cowley.ht...

Cinfhen I bailed early on with this one!! It was just TOO MUCH 11h

King and King was written by Linda de Haan and Stern Nijland in 2000. This is a wonderful book that teaches diversity in the classroom. It is about a prince being forced to find a princess to marry and after looking at many princesses, he falls in love with another prince. This book has not won any awards, but I still highly recommend for a classroom read aloud!

King and King is a modern fairy tale about a King who needs to find his Queen. He is on the hunt to find the perfect queen, but none of them seem to meet his expectations, until one of the contestants brothers shows up with her. When the King sees the brother, he immediately understand why he could not find the right Queen. It was because he wanted a King by his side. After they get married and live happily ever after.

Tepid historical fiction with unlikable characters in this fish-out-of-water novel. Three feckless and privileged young Americans travel to a village in the Scottish Highlands to find the Loch Ness monster. Because of the journey, Gruen‘s main character, Maddie Hyde, realizes what a monster her husband Ellis is and discovers her true self in this foreign land.

I didn't really care for Evelyn. I understood why she had to do some of the things she did but she just wasn't a very likable person, not always anyway. This was just a sad book. But it is well written and very much worth reading.

Will be in my top 5 books 📚 of the year , her writing style does remind me of Ann patchett , it‘s compared to where the crawdads sing but far far better in my opinion I hope 🤞 it‘s made into a 🎥 film…. Who wouldn‘t be in love with Jonas
