Winter - Frankie Rose (Four Seasons)

Winter (Four Seasons #1)Winter by Frankie Rose

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a good book but there's a lot of unnecessary storyline, added plots, etc.  I thought the twists were good, I found myself going AHA several times.  Luke was a good character to fall for.  Just a lot going on in the story that wasn't needed.  The story wrapped up beautifully and most questions were answered in the end....

Part-Time Princess (Ladies in Waiting #1) - Pamela Dumond

Part-time Princess (Ladies in Waiting, #1)Part-time Princess by Pamela DuMond

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book!  It's a "feel-good" book and brings you back to the days you imagined anything was possible even fairy tales.  I love how this book is for adults, I figured it would be more juvenile but the main character is a waitress at a bar who is hired to impersonate someone famous in another country.  I loved Lucy and her ladies-in-waiting, they all had such unique and loud personalities and they were fun.  Their friendship was completely believable, I know my friends would have my back like that in a second.  I also giggled like a school girl at the ending... I love how close the girls were and it was totally fluffy and make believe but in a believable way, if that's a possibility?

But really good I'm anxious to see what the other ladies in waiting books will entail, if they will be about a different girl or Lucy... I would love to learn more about Esmeralda as she was HILARIOUS.  :)

I did get this book from Netgalley for an honest review.

The Five Stages of Falling in Love by Rachel Higginson

The Five Stages of Falling in LoveThe Five Stages of Falling in Love by Rachel Higginson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book tore me to pieces, I got so incredibly emotional reading this.  My heart broke for Liz, my heart broke for Ben.  My heart broke for the kids.  It was definitely real and raw, it's an emotional ride.  I will say that Rachel Higginson put my heart back together in a way that was acceptable but this book was so unique to anything I've read that I just really enjoyed it.  My first read by her and I'll definitely be looking into more... My only wish was that this book had been longer.  I wanted more towards the end, I wont spoil it but I definitely would have liked an extra chapter or three towards the end.
