Review: Hunted

Hunted
Hunted by Meagan Spooner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was one of those books where i had to force myself to put it down after reading my allotted 50 pages a day, otherwise i would have sat and read the whole thing. It was THAT good.

I might be a little biased though because Beauty and the Beast is my second favorite Disney movie. [my first being The Aristocats, if you’re curious.]

It’s not your normal retelling though, it gets dark and gritty at times because Beauty [Yeva, to be exact.] in this story is your hunter. There’s not a angry pitchfork mob. Yes, Beauty is the one hunting The Beast and i found that FLIPPING BAD. ASS. I was seriously convinced that she was going to kill him toward the end!

Review: The Seafarer’s Kiss

The Seafarer's Kiss
The Seafarer’s Kiss by Julia Ember
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

THE LITTLE MERMAID RETELLING.
QUEER MERMAIDS.
NORSE MYTHOLOGY.

Ersel trying to figure out how Humans work is too cute
Loki The Trickster God is addressed with they/them pronouns and this pleases me greatly
Ersel is Ursula and not Ariel
FAT MC. FAT MC.

Ersel and Ragna hit each other [a huge no-no.] and even though Ragna is like “I shouldn’t have done that.” Ersel turns around and is like, “You punch better.” and i’m just sat here like YOU DO NOT HIT YOUR LOVE INTEREST, WTF.

Review: The Bone Witch | Rin Chupeco

The Bone Witch
The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I got a whole bunch of Memoirs of a Geisha vibes off this book, especially when Tea was “starting from the bottom and now we here” and also with the heavy emphasis of entertainment in teahouses. The book’s plot; while SUPER INTERESTING in the beginning because the pacing was excellent, left me confused AS FUCK as we started getting towards the end.

Review: Get It Together, Delilah! | Erin Gough

Get It Together, Delilah!
Get It Together, Delilah! by Erin Gough
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

    • I never knew this would be the Coffee Shop AU Fanfic come to life

    • This was originally titled The Flywheel, which is the place where Delilah works / manages for her father.
    • Delilah’s Dad is on a trip around the world working on getting over Del’s Mom, June having an affair.
    • Charlie (Delilah’s friend) is pretty cool. He’s like the wingman between Delilah and Rosa (Delilah’s interest.) He almost goes to jail for beating the shit out of a girlfriend’s father and ends up hiding out at Delilah’s flat for a while
    • Delilah tripping over herself when Rosa is around is so #relatable
    • DEL AND ROSA ARE HANGING OUT SCREEN PRINTING SHIRTS!!!
    • I can definitely feel Del’s frustration about dating someone in the closet.
    • Fuck Hamish. And not in the fun way.

I love when a book’s title is mentioned within the book somewhere.

  • I’m so so so SO happy that Delilah and Rosa worked things out and ended up together in the end!! *pops confetti*

While Get It Together, Delilah! was super sweet and fluffy at times, it wasn’t all that lasting impressive but I’m slightly forgiving as this was Erin Gough‘s first novel.
