#29 - Isla and the happily ever after by Stephanie Perkins
Isla and the Happily Ever After - Stephanie Perkins

This was exactly what I needed after my kind of reading slump. This was a really beautiful story with a happy ending.

 

I liked the fact that we got a bit of the characters from the other books (Lola, Cricket, Anna…), this book is part of a trilogy but you do not really need to read all of them, but I totally recommend it because it is a great series.

 

Isla reminded me a lot of myself. She is really short (but actually still taller than me) and she got into a lot of situations that I could totally relate to. Like with Anna and the French Kiss, I really loved the fact that it took place in Paris and that the characters were going to places I’ve visited, just like their trip to Barcelona. It was also fun to read all these things about European teenagers who are different from American, it was really accurate.

 

The ending was absolutely beautiful; so many things happened that I was not expecting, it was cute and heartwarming. I definitely recommend this series.

The Kidnapped King: MM BDSM Erotic Romance (Royal Liaisons Book 1)
The Kidnapped King: MM BDSM Erotic Roman... The Kidnapped King: MM BDSM Erotic Romance (Royal Liaisons Book 1) - Isla Sinclair It was a fast and entertaining read.

Okay, so the 'kidnapping' in the book took less than 1/4 of book to resolve, but the world building done by the author was intriguing if a little lighter than most. However, given the length of the book it was decent.

The characters were intriguing, although I would have liked a little bit more back story on both the Anton and Nerissa, the co-ruling King and Queen who were elected, not married. There's a lot of potential for a really amazing world here.

And the romance element? Oooooh child, it was smoking hot!

REVIEW BY AMY - Sex, Spoons & Salsa by @IslaDennes
Sex, Spoons & Salsa - Isla Dennes
Thrown into Salsa lessons by her therapist, Fiona stumbles her way from depression to happiness and, numerous disasters later, finally finds her rhythm again.

As if it weren’t bad enough to be living back home with her parents after leaving the Two-timing Lying Bastard, Fiona also finds herself socially ostracized after a drunken dance floor disaster at the Returned Serviceman’s Club Retro Disco, resulting in her father practically frog-marching her off to a psychologist. Sounds very Hollywood, right? Except, when your parents are Scottish, it goes without saying that any therapist is of the budget variety.

As part of her plunge into the surreal world of therapy, Fiona’s instructed to have dance lessons to raise her self-esteem, in the process emptying her father’s wallet and threatening the sanctity of his precious prized spoon collection to foot the bill. And that’s despite Fiona’s three left feet, all of which are ‘rhythm challenged’.

Salsa lessons, secrets and lies, a riotous bachelorette night and a disastrous wedding see Fiona’s life spiraling as wildly out of control as her Salsa. With her therapist’s help, she should be able to see the truth lurking just below the surface and finally take back control once and for all—that is, unless her so-called friends have anything to do with it.
 

Reader's Advisory: This book contains references to implications of emotional abuse and a brief description of dubious consent.

 

@Totally_Bound, @Mommy_Amers, #Humour, #Contemporary, #Romance, 3 out of 5 (good)

The Doll J.C Martin
The Doll - J.C.Martin

A spooky short tale set in Isla de las Munecas The Island of the Dolls it tells the tale of a little girl and her mother who visit the island on a trip were from there.. A series of events happen that is very sinister.

 

I was Really lucky with this one I found it for free while hunting around the kindle store. The cover was what hooked me to it the tale, it's self was extremely impressive the way the plot flowed as well.

 

What I loved most about it is where the story is based it's based on the spooky island of the dolls and it's haunting past. There's so many places in the world that have themes like this, and that Hooked the little Real paranormal fan in me.

 

Give this book a read I promise you it's short but you won't be disappointed.

Mi isla
Mi isla - Elísabet Benavent Cada vez que Elisabet saca libro, allá voy, de cabeza y sin dudar, a pesar de que no siempre acabo igual de ilusionada que empiezo.
Es de lo poquito que leo en español, así que espero bastante emocionada cada lanzamiento. Y sí, me hace sentir. Y sí, también me hace llorar y algunas veces(que no siempre) me hace reír mucho.Pero, y lamento decirlo, también suele llevarme a un punto en el que me dan ganas de arrancarme alguna extremidad y gritar hasta la extenuación. Sí, demasiado.
Me ha pasado con todos sus libros (aunque con Silvia menos) pero éste me ha llegado a poner de mal humor.
¿Seguiré leyendo a Elisabet? Sin lugar a dudas.
¿Lo recomiendo a pesar de las 2 estrellas que le he plantado? Pues, sorprendentemente, sí, lo recomiendo porque entiendo que soy yo la que ha tenido problemas con el desarrollo de esta historia y que esa prota, (que a mi me ha tenido al borde de abandonar el libro, al menos, cuatro veces) a otra persona le puede gustar, la puede entender y puede empatizar con ella.
No es mi caso pero igualmente, adelante!
