Friday Book Round Up

Happy Friday everyone!  This is going to be a short post as I have only read 1 book this week. Yes, I said one!  Here is why:

My daughter, Ellie, was admitted into the hospital last Friday night for RSV, adenovirus, and asthma. She later developed pneumonia and a pleural effusion (fluid between the lining of the lungs). She was finally discharged yesterday (Thursday). ๐Ÿ˜ท


4 stars  Elizabeth Stevens is writes entertaining YA/NA romances.  I am always a little leery of these types of books because many authors tend to make the characters either very immature or have the wisdom of a 30 year-old. I have yet to read a book by this author where the character doesn't have the budding maturity of a young adult learning to navigate the world while also having some of that immaturity.  I had the great please of being beta reader for Elizabeth Steven's Now Presenting and later receiving an ARC of this novella, Book 1 in her I'm No Princess series. This fast-paced read was entertaining with some humor and very likable characters. I enjoyed it so much, that I was bummed when it ended and I am trying to patiently wait for the next installment.

Release date: December 8, 2018
Review coming soon...

One tattooed girl.
Three frustrated tutors.
A whole lot of accidents waiting to happen.

It’s time for me to join my dad and older sister in Gallyr, to dust off the cobwebs and leather jackets of a normal person’s life and don the mantle of Lady Tatiana Bethany Penrose.

For the first time, all eyes are on me and I have to be presented to society at a ball in my honour. So begin the lessons; dancing, dress, dinner etiquette.

Now, all I need to do is not spill my beer on or set fire to my date; the youngest son of my dad’s best friend, the Gallyrian King.

Not even Heaven can help me now.

The first book in the I'm No Princess Novella Series. Please be aware that this story uses Australian English spelling and syntax.
