First Impression Friday – With the Fire on High

First Impression Friday

Hey ya’ll! I am coming at ya with a “weekly” meme thanks to my friend Joe over @ Storeys of Stories! I really liked this idea because it is less commitment on my part (I don’t have to do it EVERY week, only when I start a new book) and gets me talking about books I have just started (or want to start very soon).

Straight from the horse’s mouth (if you will):

First Impression Friday will be a meme where you talk about a book that you JUST STARTED! Maybe you’re only a chapter or two in, maybe a little farther.  Based on this sampling of your current read, give a few impressions and predict what you’ll think by the end.  Did you think you’d love it and ended up hating it? Or did you think you’d hate it and wound up loving it? Or were you…

Rating: 5/5 heart melting stars
Format: e-ARC


Synopsis

41150487A big-hearted romantic comedy in which First Son Alex falls in love with Prince Henry of Wales after an incident of international proportions forces them to pretend to be best friends…

Review: King of Fools by Amanda Foody

mousaibookscom

Hey all, Dani here.

My review today is of a sequel that I have been waiting for since I devoured the first book last year. I felt completely honored that I was approved for an e-galley of this one from the publisher via NetGalley…and I’m also very much looking forward to having the finished copy in my hands. As always, I do admit that I love being able to read books early, but whether they are early or late reads, or if they are in exchange for a review, a gift from a friend, or something I bought myself, my rating and review is all honest and all my own. So, let’s not waste any more time and I’ll just jump into the review.
