Book Information Post With the Queens dissaproval aimed squarely in her direction will she weather the storm and win the prince? This is the second book in a four book season series and it tells the story of Libby's time at court as a Debutante for the winter Season. But just because shes there as a debutante now rather than a attendant to a debutante as she was in the first book doesnt mean she has an easier time of it, infact if anythiing its even harder because the competiton for the crown is even tougher than it was last time as both the Princes are taking part. Again as with the first book When I read the synopsis for this book on WattPad I was sure that I was going to love it, even more so beacuse I'd already read the first book in the seres The Season and now i've read the book I can say I wasn't dissapointed, thus the 4 out of 5 star rating. And because of all the afore mentioned things I have to say that this is a book that I will both reccomend to others and buy it as a gift for anyone I think would enjoy it. It was great being back in Libby and Prince Andrews love story because they are so well suited that its what you could call a match made in Heaven. Again the authors writing was so captivating and evocative that as a reader you feel as though your experiencing the events along with characters. One of the debutantes that we meet in this book is Pricess Dulcina of Ardalone (learn more about her and her family in The Rebel Prince) who expects to be "crowned" the next queen of Pretania at the emd of the season thanks to a Marriage Treaty that was signed by her Father and the King of Pretania, surfice to say shes not happy when she looses out to Libby. I loved the fact that Libby was attending this seasons as a debutante as apposed to a debutantes attendant, as she was in the first book, she was still as singleminded, determined, intoreant of the other debutantes simpering and backstabbing (as well as the general backstabbing within the royalcourt, and doggedly honest as she was in the first book. The strengthening of the relationships between Libby and the Prince and Princess as well as the development of the relationship between the young prince and Prince Andrews best friend were great. The one dharacter whos behaviour I couldn't make sense of at all while reading this book was the King, because it just seemed so out of character for him. It baffles me still furher now I've read the Heiress Queen, the prequel to the series, as it seems completely out of the relms of what you'd expect from how he was portrayed in this book. This book was so captivating that from cover to cover it just couldn't put it down and as soon as soon as I'd finished reading this one I immediately strated reading the next book in the series The Rebel Prince (unfortunatley not yet a completed book on WaatPad), because I needed more more more.
Book Information Post This is the first book in a four book season series, prequel The Heiress Queen,and it tells the story of Ellas debutante year of the Season with her young finishing school drop out cousin, expelled from everyone in Pretania, Libby Marks-Whelan as her attendant. It tells of all the goings on in the season along with Libby's antics while there until her cousin sends her home after finding out what she'd been upto. When I read the synopsus for this book on WattPad I was sure that I was going to love the book and now I've read the book I can say I wasn't dissapointed, thus the 4 out of 5 star rating. And because of this I have to say that this is a book that I will both reccomend it to others and buy it as a gift for anyone I think would enjoy it. Although i can see where other reviewers are coming from with regard the fact that the author finished this book when it was so close to the story being finished and continued the story in the Debutante I can understand why the author felt the need to do it. I honestly don't think it would have been fair not to finish this book where the author did as it was about Ella's Debutante year so the remainder of the story for Libby and Prince Andrew needed its own book so as not to detract from Ella's story as that was what this book was about although Libby played a fairly major part in it. Initially I liked Ella because she had invited Libby to the Palace to be her attendant during the season, but ultimately I disliked her because it was clear that she was a mean spirited schemimg bitch which was obvious when she sent Libby home for trying to help her win the prince with her mischeivious antics. Libby although quite Nieve has a very strong determined attitude, and cant stand all the us silly simpering that most of the debutants do when around the prince while stabbing each other in the back when the Prince isn't around. I have to say that I am of the same mind as her about the simpering and back stabbing of the Debutants because I to would have no patience with it either. It was quite clear from the authors writing that the Prince was neither taken in by the debutants behaviour nor impressed with it, which is why he gravitated towards Libby so much he knew she'd tell him straught when it came to their behaviour and his behaviour. The way the author described the characters really made the reader feel connected to them but it also made you appreciate all dynamics between them. I would also say that the way the author described the places (Palace) and country (Pretania) the story was set in made so evocatively made me feel like I was actually experiencing everything the charcters were along side them, which is why in the book whenever Libby was feeliing frustrated about something or with someone I felt that frustration to. I particularly loved the relationships that developed between Libby and the prince and pricess as you could see that they were genuine and going to be long lasting. All in all I loved this book so much that as soon as I finished reading it I immediately started reading the next book in the series "The Debutante". As i'm writing this Review not having read the entire series I can honestly say that whole series (The Rebel Prince, upto where the authors written so far) is fantastic and i'll definiteltly be reading more of her work.

Full Book Review
The book tells the story of what happens to Alice when she spots & follows a a flustered-looking white rabbit called Dave calling for a referendum down a rabbit hole on the 23rd of June 2017. It follows her journey through the strange new land she emerges in, where up is down, black is white, experts are fools and fools are experts… During her journey through the strange new land of Brexit she meets characters such as Corbynpillar (who sits on a toadstool smoking his hookah and being no help to anyone); Humpty Trumpty (perched on a wall he wants the Mexicans to pay for); the Cheshire Twat (who likes to disappear leaving only his grin, a pint, and the smell of scotch eggs remaining); and the terrifying Queen of Heartlessness who’ll take off your head if you dare question her plan for Brexit). Will Alice ever be able to find anyone who speaks sense.
I loved the authors satirical twist on Lewis Carole’s story Alice in Wonderland as well as his take on the Key players in Brexit including the idiocy of some of the things they said during the campaign.
This is a book that came at exactly the right time for me as I had recently read lots of books with some hard subjects in them and although this was about a very topical heavy subject due to its satirical nature I gave me some much needed light relief. It was also a very quick and easy read.
Although this is a book will date quickly due to the nature of its content it is still a book that I may re-read in the future as well as recommend to others and buy for people I know who I think may enjoy it.
It is for the reasons above that I have given this book a 5 star rating.

On the whole I had a good reading week which is quite surprising as it was during the Easter Holidays so obviousley my son was at home so I wasn’t expecting to be able to read very much during the day. I enjoyed everything I read this week whether it was something I finished reading or started/continued reading. If any of you have anything you want to share with me about the books that I have reviewd and mentioned in this post then please feel free to share them with me in the comments below,
In this post I will be discussing the books I currently reading or have started this week and the books that I have read/finished reading this week.
The Books that I read this week are:
Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah <Narrator: Susan Erickson> Read from 15th to 16th April 2018 Star Rating: 5/5 Stars book information & Review Post I heard about this book from Jen on her channel Jen Talks Audiobooks who gave it an effusive review on her channel. This was a fantastically well written book which told the story of a Family where the mother had lived through the Siege of Leningrad during the second world war. The mother told the story of her life during the Siege bit by bit through a fairytale which she’d been telling her daughters the initial part of since they were children. The imagery that the words created in places was amazing and was helped along the way by the skill of the Narrator, and it made me feel like I was a part of the story. Both this author and Narrator have become auto reads and listens because their both good in their fields.
The Final Empire (Mistborn 1/ ) by Brandon Sanderson <Narrator: > Read from 28th March to 26th April 2018 My Rating: 5/5 Stars book information & Review post I am so glad that I finally read this book which I’d heard about from several book tubers that II follow all of whom had said how great it was and they were all right. This is the first book in a multi book series and it told the story of Vin a young girl who’s an untrained Mistborn. I thoroughly enjoyed this well written book especially once I started listening to it via audible narration with my Kindle book as i felt totally engrossed in the story and world. The magic system in the book is fascinating and I can’t wait to see how it and all the character’s who I loved for different reasons develop further in future books in the series. It is for this reason that I can’t wait to get and start reading the next book, The Well if Ascension, in the series.
The Baronet’s Wedding Engagement (Royal Wedding Invitations 2/4) by Jessica Hart Reading Period: Read from April 21 to 27 2018 My Rating: 5/5 Stars book information & Review post
This is the second book in the Royal Wedding Invitations series by various authors in which continues the story of Hope and Jonas’s Wedding planning/organization as well as Max (Hope’s Brother) and Flora’s (one of Hope’s Best friends and Bridesmaids) story. I loved the fact that although the engagement between Max and flora started as a fake one for the sake of the Crown Princess it became a real one in the end. I enjoyed this book more than I did the first one, as in this one unlike the other one there were no extra words in sentences – which when it happened in the first book and drew me out of the story. It was great being back in the world of an upcoming Royal Wedding and with the characters from the first book as well as meeting the new characters introduced in this book. Having read this book I know I want to read more books by this author as I enjoyed her writing style. This book is a lovely short little contemporary romance and it fits in to the contemporary romance very well
Days of Blood and Starlight (Daughter of Smoke and Bone 2/4) by Laini Taylor <Narrator: Emilia Fox> Read from 12/3/17 to 19/4/18 Star Rating: 5/5 Stars Book Information and Information Post As soon as I had finished the previous book in this series (Daughter of Smoke and Bone) and was able to get hold of this book I started reading it. I again got the audible narration with the kindle book as I know that this is the way that I am going to read all the books in this series. The combination of Laini’s writing and Emilia’s Narration meant that I was thoroughly engrossed in the story and plot, and strong belief in the characters. I can honestly say that I love Laini’s writing so she has become an auto read author as well as due to the skill of the narrator she has become an auto listen narrator. This book fits well in to the YA Paranormal Fantasy Romance genre so I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading books from these genres.
