Weekly Reading List #286

Happy Saturday everyone! Okay, so I will be the first to admit I have a reading addiction. I love to read, nothing wrong with that I think everyone should read even a little bit a day.

However, I’ve got this growing pile of books on my dresser and I have made myself a promise: no more buying books (book box subscriptions excluded) until I read at least ten of these books here! I know, I think we have all made this promise to ourselves in one way or another, but I am determined.

Plus, I’ve got a second little e one due in 4.5 weeks so I gotta pinch those pennies! That is also part of my incentive.

So, that is what’s new with me. I hope you all are doing well!

Now, on that note check out these three books below and stay tuned for my reviews. Have a wonderful day everyone, and, of course, happy reading!

1. Of Princes and Promises

by Sandhya Menon

From the New York Times bestselling author of When Dimple Met Rishi comes the second installment in a brand-new series set an elite boarding school that’s a contemporary spin on fairy tales, this one a delightful, romantic twist on The Frog Prince.

Caterina LaValle is determined to show she’s still the queen of St. Rosetta’s Academy. Sure, her crown may be slightly askew after her ex-boyfriend, Alaric, cheated on her, but she’s a LaValle. She’ll find a way to march right back in there, her hands clutching the strings to the whole puppet show. This time, she’s going to be untouchable.

Rahul Chopra knows that moment he shared with Caterina LaValle at the winter formal meant something. Surely she feels it, too. He’s a little uncertain how someone like him (socially inept to a point way past “adorkable”) could fit into her world, but he’s loved Caterina for years. He knows they’ll find a way.

When Caterina finds out Alaric is taking a supermodel to the upcoming gala, she knows she cannot arrive without the perfect date. But the thought of taking another superficial St. R’s boy exhausts her. The solution? Sweet-but-clueless Rahul Chopra and a mysterious pot of hair gel with the power to alter the wearer into whatever his heart desires.

When Rahul tries it, he transforms instantly into RC—debonair, handsome, and charming. But transformation comes with a price: As Rahul enjoys his new social standing, the line between his two personas begins to blur. Will he give up everything, including Caterina, to remain RC? Or will this unlikely pair find their way back to each other?
