Liz Loves Books

I love to read and to talk about books. I review many of the books I read. I do not accept any author/publisher submissions for reviews. I do not read or review ARCs. I do not enter any giveaways or contests. I obtain the books I review by purchasing them at the same price they are offered to the general public at the time of purchase. My reviews are intended for the use of my fellow readers. They are not advertising or promotion. They are not beta reads or constructive criticism or editing or advice to the author. My only obligation to the author is to pay the price charged for the book at the time of purchase. My reviews are sometimes critical and I will not stop posting critical reviews just to spare delicate authors' feelings. I am happy to make new friends, but friend requests from authors or promoters who have few or no books (and/or friends) in common with me and write or promote categories I do not read (especially new adult) will be ignored. I used to read more self-published books. After recent meltdowns by self-published authors, I now only read self-published authors I've previously read or who have been recommended to me by fellow readers I trust. I also used to read young adult/new adult books but rarely do so now.

Ordinary Girl in a Tiara (Harlequin Romance) - Jessica Hart This is a frothy, fluffy, funny romance. It is a Cinderella story. And also a frenemies-to-lovers and engagement-of-convenience story. The heroine is pretending to be romantically involved with the hero who is the heir to the throne of a made up principality so that her best friend who is a princess who has been romantically linked to the hero can run off to be an ordinary girl for a while. It's ridiculous. I really enjoyed it. I read this in between two very angsty books and it was perfect for that.
