Princess of Banter and Humor // Royals by Rachel Hawkins

I went into this book hoping I’d enjoy it, but I didn’t count on how much I would like it. The premise seems really close to a book I read earlier this year and thought was okay but wasn’t really impressed by (Stephanie Kate Strohm’s Prince in Disguise), so that seemed like a point against … More Princess of Banter and Humor // Royals by Rachel Hawkins

Always Never Yours (Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegemund-Broka) | Goodreads | 4 stars I thought this book looked cute but didn’t have huge expectations, which just gave it a greater chance of topping those low expectations.

Trouble Goes to Theme Parks and Raises the Dead // Mini-Reviews

Trouble Never Sleeps (Stephanie Tromly) | Goodreads | 4.5 stars I’m sad to see this delightful series come to an end. It was just as much fun rereading the first two books before this finale, though, so hopefully I have plenty of great rereads ahead of me.
