The Fairy Tale Trap by Emily Casey (Book Review)

Ivy is ripped from her home and sucked into the tale of Beauty and the Beast. Emily takes the story of Beauty and the Beast and spins an original creative story that’s all her own. The world that Emily was able to create was colorful, magical, and intriguing, along with fast-paced twist and turns that keeps your interest. A Pesky pixie (who I would have loved to smack around a little) despite my  feeling this way I did enjoy the character popping in and out of the story. Beast who goes from semi-gentle to crazed animal , and  teenager Ivy Thorn fighting to get back home. The characters blend well together and complement each other

The Fairy Tale Trap is quick fun read, and it’s nothing like your typical fairy tale.

Thanks Ivy Thorn for the crazy adventure. I’ll be seeing you in The Fairy Tale Twist

Wedding night by Sophie Kinsella (Book Review)

Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella

Wedding Night: A Novel

Book Excerpt

Lottie just knows that her boyfriend is going to propose during lunch at one of London’s fanciest restaurants. But when his big question involves a trip abroad, not a trip down the aisle, she’s completely crushed. So when Ben, an old flame, calls her out of the blue and reminds Lottie of their pact to get married if they were both still single at thirty, she jumps at the chance. No formal dates—just a quick march to the altar and a honeymoon on Ikonos, the sun-drenched Greek island where they first met years ago.

Their family and friends are horrified. Fliss, Lottie’s older sister, knows that Lottie can be impulsive—but surely this is her worst decision yet. And Ben’s colleague Lorcan fears that this hasty marriage will ruin his friend’s career. To keep Lottie and Ben from making a terrible mistake, Fliss concocts an elaborate scheme to sabotage their wedding night. As she and Lorcan jet off to Ikonos in pursuit, Lottie and Ben are in for a honeymoon to remember, for better . . . or worse

My Thoughts

You can always count on Sophie for a good laugh. Wedding Night is fun and frustrating, with it’s share of quirky characters. Lottie is a fly by the seat of your pants kinda of girl, upset by the turn of events involving her boyfriend Richard, she runs off and marry the first guy who ask (literally). Many times through out this story I wanted to reach into these pages and give Lottie a good shake. I likes Fliss and Lorcan they were the perfect anchor in all craziness that was the wedding night. I loved the chemistry and the underlying heat between the two as they try to keep it semi casual.  The Wedding Night is light easy read and nothing you would want your wedding night to be.
