  • Book of the Month: Being a real story written by the people who actually experienced it, it’s hard not to feel affected by it. Since I was so involved in the process when it happened it’s also very easy to think back and say “when that happened I was there” or “when this happened I did this”. A very good book!
  • Worst of the Month: Like I said in the review; this one made me quite uncomfortable. Still not sure why.
  • Surprise of the Month: Didn’t think I could find another Beauty & the Beast retelling that I loved as much as ACOTAR but this one’s definitely up there somewhere!
  • Disappointment of the month: Not really disappointed in the story here, mind, but the translation. It makes for a hell of an annoying read when words are missing in sentences or an O (the letter) is replaced by 0 (the number, zero).
