Phoenix Unbound (Fallen Empire, #1)
18, Sep

Rating: 5/5 stars

Genre: Fantasy Romance, Adult

Phoenix Unbound is a contradiction.

It is tender and savage.

Sweet yet bitter.

Beautiful and disgusting.

Heart-breaking and heart-mending.

And, put simply, I loved it.

The Chase (Briar U, #1)
09, Aug

Genre: Contemporary Romance, New Adult

Rating: 3.5/5 stars

Narrator: On August 5, 2018, Katerina peacefully finished The Chase. She went to the beach, she was sunburned and ended up looking like a roasted Thanksgiving turkey, she ate seafood with the light summer breeze rustling her hair, and life was simply perfect. Until she got a summons to the Prosecutor's office.

An Offer From a Gentleman (Bridgertons, #3)
18, Jul

Rating: 3/5 stars

Genre: Historical Romance, Regency, Historical Fiction

Hi, my name is Katerina and I am addicted to Bridgertons.

My Plain Jane (The Lady Janies, #2)
09, Jul

Rating: 3/5 stars

Genre: Young Adult, Retellings, Paranormal, Historical Fiction

Oh boy, this is going to be awkward.

Disclaimer: I loved My Lady Jane. Every time I think of this marvel of a book a huge grin takes over my face. And, partially, that's the reason I may be too harsh on My Plain Jane (well this and my slow but steady transformation to a judgy old lady that is too difficult to please). I really wanted to love it. I expected to love it. I'm afraid, though, that My Plain Jane was exactly what the title promised. Plain.
