Mini Reviews of Cinderella is Dead, Crave & The Nameless Queen

Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron

A clever twist to an old fairytale. The author takes a different approach to institutionalized story beat but in a good way. Sophia goes against the rules the king has put in place. Instead of an evil stepmother there is the evil king and in this Cinderella story she is already dead, but still has family in her bloodline that lives. Sophia plans to take down the king and clear Cinderella’s name and the book takes you on her journey to do so with the help from an unlikely source.

This book had secrets, betrayal, magic, and mystery. I loved the actions has consequences attitude Sophia has in the book. I loved every bit of it. It has been the best Cinderella retelling I have read so far. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


Crave by Tracy Wolff


I went into this book believing it was going to be a Twilight knock off, boy was I wrong. The only similarity is that a human falls for a vampire. I still do not believe Grace is a human. It is set in Alaska, which made it mysterious and great for a good paranormal novel. The back and forth between Grace and Jaxon did drive me crazy but was necessary.

It had a variety of characters and I like that it wasn’t mainly vampires and werewolves. It had a mix of dragons and witches too. I did not see the twist coming and the reveal was done very well. I cannot believe I am saying this book I like this series better than Twilight and will be finishing the series.



The Nameless Queen by Rebecca McLaughlin

A fantasy about a nameless girl receiving a tattoo that makes her queen. The only problem is the nameless have no privileges and are on the bottom of the totem pole in this city.

This book had drama, suspense and wonderful worldbuilding that made it easy to visualize the characters and the city. It is also easy to connect to the characters. The unraveling of the main character’s true identity will keep you reading the story. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
