Review: Someone Else's Fairytale


Someone Else's Fairytale
Someone Else's Fairytale by Emily Mah Tippetts

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



Someone Else’s Fairytale beings with Chloe Winters and her two friends Matthew and Lori; they are heading to their college to be extras in a movie. Chloe does not find this fun at all, and would much rather be somewhere else. All the girls are screaming and swooning over Jason Vanderholt, but not Chloe. When Jason stops in front of Chloe he starts asking questions, she is reluctant, and could care less if he knows some of her family. From then on Jason goes out of his way to talk and hang out with her.


Chloe is hard working and determined to do well in school and get into grad school. She has had a rough childhood, but somehow still manages to smile. You learn about her past and about her “family”, which is something she hates to discuss. Something about Chloe is she does not “hook up”, and is pretty much saving herself. She has had issues in the past were people ended up leaving because of this.


Jason is an actor and popular with the ladies. His character was sweet, charming, and nice. To be an actor he was not cocky, and tried his hardest to get Chloe to notice him. His family was incredible. They were all family orientated. However, he also has a past, which has shaped his character.


I enjoyed this book and how real the characters were. All the characters in the book were great, and I loved how Chloe and Jason never assumed anything but would talk everything out. The story was wonderful, and I had moments where I wanted to take her place in the book! It was a sweet read and had a fairytale touch to it; definitely did not want the book to end. I recommend this book to everyone, you will not regret it!

Review: Somebody To Love


Somebody To Love
Somebody To Love by Kristan Higgins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



Parker Welles is a single mother and a children's author. Life at the beginning is wonderful, she is a trust fund baby, & her book is turning into a movie. Bu then things goes downhill when her father ends up in jail. Her father ends up taking her money to pay off what damage he has done, and Parker ends up losing the house. To make matters worse her son is spending three weeks with his dad Ethan and his wife Lucy traveling. Parker finds out that her long lost aunt has left her a house and decides to go to Gideon's Cove, Maine to sell the house. So much for trying to sell the house right when she gets there though. The house is a dump and a shack that is falling apart. Her aunt was a hoarder and can barely move around in the house for so much stuff.

Then comes "Thing One" her father's lawyer. James ends up helping Parker with the house even though she is not very fond of him. Can they work out their differences and get along? Parker ends up getting a job at her cousin's flower shop and she ends up enjoying it. However, with the house coming along nice and her son coming home soon, will she stay or will she move back to Rhode Island?

I very much enjoyed both characters, they both have parents that you just want to shake and say "Wake UP!” Both families just got on my nerves, but that is the only thing in the book that irritated me.

Somebody to Love is a wonderful sweet read. I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. There were moments I would have tears in my eyes and then smiling cheering for the characters. I loved the setting in Gideon's Cove, Maine. It sounds like a nice quiet town where everyone knows everybody. I highly recommend this book!
