The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee (ARC Review)

🌟4 stars 🌟

I was so excited when I won this ARC in an Instagram giveaway from Katherine Tegen Books! Now that I’ve finished The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy, I’ve been oscillating between 4/4.5 star rating before settling on 4 stars, because I was engrossed in the book while reading it, but it wasn’t one that left me thinking about it for days afterwards. Although not as action-packed as The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, this was still a fun read. This review will contain minor spoilers for The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue.

I think this book would be great for people who enjoy:

  • Strong Female Protagonists
  • Historical Fiction
  • Girl Gangs
  • Minority Representation

Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

🌟 4 space station stars 🌟

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

🌟 5 stars 🌟

If you need me, I’ll be in the corner crying over how much this book has broken my heart. Illuminae should honestly should have a disclaimer that it will rip out your heart and you will cry a lot. Illuminae is one of the few books that I went into with high expectations and wasn’t disappointed.

You’ll also enjoy this book if you’re a fan of:

  • Sci-Fi
  • Technology
  • Creative Book Format
  • Books that hit you right in the feels
  • Books that make you cry
  • Fast-paced read
  • Plot twists GALORE

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

🌟4.5 stars🌟

I saw a lot of mixed reviews for this book on Goodreads, so I decided to give it a try for myself. I loved the concept of Caraval and learning more about the game and how it’s played. Although, I was annoyed by Scarlett for the entirety of this book, it was an enjoyable read overall.

To start off I think that this book would be great for people that enjoy:

  • Action in the first chapter
  • Fast-paced novels
  • Carnivals
  • Mysterious characters
  • “Bad Boy” trope
  • Scavenger hunts

I’ll start with reviewing a book that I read recently but has become one of my favorites! This book is An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir!
