Secrets of a Reluctant Princess by Casey Griffin

I got a copy from Entangled Teen and NetGalley but all my opinions are my own.

Where do I even begin? Okay the story. The story is in the POV of Adrianna “Andy” Bottom a new kid in Beverly Hills and the star on a new reality show involving her family and their rising business in the bathroom world.

Adrianna is dramatic at times and a bullied girl who just wants to fit in and not be tormented by the kids she’s gonna meet in her new school. She meets Kevin and he likes him but her new friends are against it because he’s a geek, but what they don’t know is that Andy is also a geek. She’s pretending to be cool to fit in. Oh, and did I mention she was in a reality show that she doesn’t want to be a part of?

I mean the writing was enjoyable and in some ways punny, but it’s the whole clique thing. I feel like it isn’t a thing anymore tho. I just… I didn’t like Andy and reading this book was annoying because I didn’t like her and I couldn’t relate to her in anyway.

3 out of 5 stars.

Angels for Beginners by Richard Webster

I got a copy from Llewellyn Worldwide and NetGalley but all opinions are my own.

As a person who is obsessed about learning about the occult/spiritual world, I was always fascinated about Angels. The problem was I didn’t understand how to connect with them or their different roles in human lives.

Then this book came along. I was legit happy. It explained so much to me, Like the “hierarchy” of the angels and what they do and what they usually look like. Most importantly, how to connect to them in every way and to ask them for help to deliver your prayers to God.

Here’s a book description:

“Welcome angels into your life with Angels for Beginners. Discover how to communicate with guardian angels and archangels as well as angels of healing and abundance. Join world-renowned author Richard Webster as he explores how angels have helped people throughout history, and shares simple ways we can apply those lessons in our own lives.

You don’t have to follow any particular spiritual path to connect to your divine guides. This book shows how angels work for people of different faiths and backgrounds all around the world. Sometimes angels come into our lives in unexpected ways; Angels for Beginners shares the signs and symbols angels use so you won’t miss their life-changing messages.”

Webster writes in a simplified way, but it doesn’t skimp on the information. So it was really easy to understand and to take notes. I love this Llewellyn series, I hope they continue it.

5 out 5 stars!!!
