Marichis x Romeo and Juliet? West Side Love Story is a perfect combo!

Two households, alive with Mariachi music,

In fair San Antonio, we lay our scene,

From ancient bitterness break new passion…

Hi lovers of libros, today I’m reviewing a book with the prettiest cover! West Side Love Story by Priscella Oliveras is inspired by Shakespeare’s famous Romeo and Juliet.

This Romeo and Juliet retelling is a super fun read. Undecided what R and J retelling to pick up? I will probably not help you narrow down your choices. However, West Side Love story has the main characters in rival Mariachi bands!

I finally read From Lukov with Love and am a happy gal

I am a casual figure skating fan but a year-round enemies to lover fan. So when From Lukov with Love caught my eyes on the socials (Instagram and TikTok), I immediately added it to my Tbr. However, I eventually discovered that I would either have to purchase a copy or read it with Kindle Unlimited. I chose a kindle. Yes, I am back on my Kindle Unlimited binging. Prepare yourselves for some underrated reads.

But while From Lukov with Love may be an ice-skating romance, it is also a novel about learning to stay stubborn and place your dreams in a chokehold.

Iron Widow

When I first heard about Zhao’s novel, it was through their youtube channel, I recommend it if you like video essays, and as a writer and book blogger myself, I was excited. What I expected: historical fiction inspired by the sole female emperor of China and a polyamorous relationship. What I got: science fiction dystopia, aliens, and a throuple. And I loved it.

I also would like to thank Netgalley for providing me a copy of Iron Widow to review. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.

I loved The Bridge Kingdom

Hey Readers! I’m sorry for disappearing without notice but I elected to spend my November revisiting my favorite novels and writing my fantasy story. My mind was feeling a bit stormy and this reset was much needed. But my mind has calmed and posts should resume to normal. Please enjoy this review of Bridge Kingdom

Everyone knows I love a story with enemies to lovers but what is a little bit less known is that I adore a story with Enemies to lovers combined with an arranged marriage. So when I discovered Bridge Kingdom by Danielle L Jensen, I knew I hit the jackpot.
