More Happy Ever After!

81YT1FhXpvL._UX250_Like I mentioned with the Camelot post, I am in the mood for some great comfort reads. I’m still not feeling very good, and I’m not up to dealing with a stressful series right now. I want something that will make me happy! My newest writer to do that is Melanie Cellier.

Melanie writes the most adorable light fairy tales! They all have the most gorgeous covers, great stories with plenty of strong princesses (and more than a few commoners), some swoon-worthy princes and guards, and plenty of humor throw in there too. And of course, a happy ending.

The first series is The Four Kingdoms and it starts with The Princess Companion. All of the books are included in Kindle Unlimited, but if you don’t have that, they are all around $3, so it’s pretty hard to beat that.

I don’t always go for light and fluffy, but that’s what I’ve been in the mood for and I’m not even going to apologize for it! If I read serious stuff for 11 months and fluff for 1, I think that’s fair. But I may not be ready to get more serious! When life is serious, you need something that makes you smile. I’m not even sure that made any sense, but hopefully you’ll get what I mean. Tell me what you read for your happy books in the comments.

Review: The Fixer

Title: The Fixer

Author: Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Setting: Washington DC

Tagline: Scandal meets Veronica Mars

Why did I read this book? I think it was because other people I follow really liked it, so I decided to give it a try. I should have known I wouldn’t really like it though.

It wasn’t that it was awful. The basic idea is not bad – Tessa is forced to move in with her older sister after their grandfather’s illness gets bad, finds out sister is a political fixer in DC, Tessa gets caught up in secret stuff in her elite high school, winds up in a big conspiracy – but then I have to go back to the beginning – it’s about high school. I don’t like books about high school. I already did that, did it with my kids, have no desire to read about it, watch shows about it, nothing.

So I’m sorry, whoever it was that read this and loved it, it just wasn’t for me. I did finish it and like I say, I didn’t hate it. But I didn’t like it either. At least it was a quick read from the library so I didn’t buy it or spend too much time with it.
