Book Review—Beauty and the Mustache by Penny Reid

Beauty and the Mustache (Knitting in the City, #4)Beauty and the Mustache by Penny Reid

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ve read a couple of works by Penny Reid and loved all of them, but I have to say this one took me completely by surprise. It’s hilarious, dramatic and passionately romantic. Ashley is the only sister of the Winston brothers. She has been gone for years and is now back to find an ailing mother and distant brothers. And then there is Drew, the pillar who holds them all together.

Ashley & Drew’s story while unraveling a lot of mysteries surrounding the brothers, reveals a very different aspect of Penny’s writing that I had not read before. The book somewhat split into parts dominated by different emotions. So it begins with humor and tussle, strained sibling relationship, overcast by sorrow, leading to overwhelming passion (thanks to Drew) towards the end.

As someone has said, the quietest people have the loudest minds—holds true for Drew. His poetry floods your senses with passion and emotion that is downright staggering. The outpourings of his heart will leave you speechless. The intensity of his feelings for Ashley is enrapturing. The eloquence of his words make him precious and I think were the best part about the book.

A good book to invest your time in.

Book Review—One Wish Away by Ingrid Seymour

Image result for One Wish Away: Djinn EmpireOne Wish Away by Ingrid Seymour

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received an ARC of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I absolutely loved it. A rocking story. The main concept is way old—the Genie and the magic lamp in the Arabian nights, who grants three wishes to his master. But I liked the fact that more contemporary elements are woven into the tale. Ingrid while keeping the mystical and magical elements intact added just the right dosage of drama, romance, and action to keep my interest and had me glued to the book.

Marielle is a normal girl with regular problems. Her life is laced with one tragedy after another. She is broken, lonely, trying to keep herself from drowning in her sorrows. She is distrustful and yet still trying to hang on to the last threads of her sanity. Farris is the angel in disguise—the only one who can right the wrongs—but will Marielle trust him enough to accept her share of three wishes…

An enigmatic tale of love, revenge, and magic. A must read.
