Whiskey Prince By Toni Aleo Free!
The Whiskey Prince - Toni Aleo

ake a risk.
Do something drastic.
Fall in love.

When Amberlyn Reilly loses her mother, her whole world comes crashing down. Having been caretaker to her for most of her teenage years, Amberlyn is inexperienced in many aspects of life. She hasn’t had time to live, have fun, or enjoy even the little things. It’s only when a letter from her mother, asking her to fulfill three things, sends her off to Ireland to live a life she never thought possible that she begins to heal.

Declan O’Callaghan was born and raised in Ireland and has his family’s legendary whiskey in his veins. He’s shy and not a fan of the pressure and spotlight that comes with his family name, or the title he was given at birth—the Whiskey Prince. Declan knows just what he wants and that is to take over the family dynasty, but when his father gives him an ultimatum, everything he’s worked for could come undone in the blink of an eye.

With six months to get married, the reclusive Declan spots Amberlyn across a lake and instantly feels the need to know her. Soon, the two find themselves traveling down a path neither expected. However, like any road, there are bumps and side streets to derail them. Can Declan help find the pieces that will make Amberlyn whole again? And will Amberlyn stay or run when she learns of Declan’s deadline of marriage?

There's an artist named Bob with short curly hair. He's painting Lori and Matthew's portrait. Guys, I think Bob Ross has a cameo in this manga.

This still ranges from mediocre to "oh no." Right now I'm reading a mediocre story that I don't think has anything at all to do with Princess Prince. Bandits kill all the adults in a town, but surprisingly none of the children. One of the children finds an enchanted sword and kills all the bandits. He's now older and has been invited to the castle.

 

One particular lady is interested in him, but he only has eyes for his sword:

Disappointing
The Cruel Prince - Holly Black
I'm not really sure if I liked this. I spent most of the book extremely disappointed. Holly Black is one of my favorite authors and I love the Fae but I wasn't liking most of this book. I don't like most of the characters, I wasn't into the story for most of the book and I torn about how I feel about Jude. I like a lot of things about her, I like that she was headstrong, that she wanted to be a knight and fought with a sword, I liked her anger and I like how her plan worked out, but she was also very frustrating and amazingly stupid. She constantly did the thing she was told not to or was advise against and then was surprised everytime it blow up in her face. I hated all of the romance in this book. Both with Locke and most of all with Carden. I completely hate Carden. The worst part was up until the last 60 pages the story was frustratingly predictable, I had a feeling where things were going and the fact I could so easily see what was coming and Jude couldn't, was so aggravating.
The story picked up at the end, I like how it ended and I can see the potential I hope the next book will be better.

Guessing on the page number.

 

This turns out to be a collection of short but mostly related stories. So far it has touched on issues of gender, sexuality, and racism, but all in a superficial way. Brandon loving Matthew is just an ongoing joke, it looks like Lawrence's secret love for Jenny is never going to be resolved, and I cringed during the part where Matthew fell in love with Janice, a girl with dark skin. Janice

came to the kingdom of Gemstone hoping to bathe in water that would lighten her skin and thereby make her beautiful. D-:  Matthew and Janice's romance doesn't work out because Gemstone turns out to be horribly racist, so Janice leaves to find her mother's people.

(spoiler show)

 

Oh, and Matthew and Lawrence's father is gross. He's forgotten that he's the one who ordered Lawrence to be raised as Lori. His wife died in childbirth, so he picked the baby that looked most like her and had him raised as a girl. Now he dresses "Lori" up to look just like his wife, and I'm so creeped out.
