Coneixement comú



I received an ARC of this book for free from the author for promotional purposes.

I’ve been a reader and fan of Melissa de la Cruz since middle school. Her books are always so fun and engaging, and this one was no exception.

First off, there’s so much Filipino representation in this book. I loved it. The book captures so much of Filipino culture and family life. As a Filipino American, I found it very relatable (especially in regards to how stubborn Filipino mothers can be). I’m so happy Melissa de la Cruz has started incorporating more of her Filipino heritage into her books. Representation does matter!

The story was well done. The Filipino stages of courtship was an entertaining premise. I liked how the story came full circle (sorry if this is vague, I’m trying to remain spoiler free). It was so cute and just made for an adorable love story.

Since this is a romance, there’s naturally some sex/sexy scenes. I loved how sex was handled. The main character, Dalisay, is a virgin, but everything was so sex positive.

Lastly, the characters were all so lovable. I particularly loved Dalisay’s lola (grandmother). I also had no complaints with the love interest, Evan.

Overall, this was such a joy to read! If you’re looking for a feel-good contemporary romance, check this one out.

2.5 cute and fast read. Not a fan of short stories. Some felt a little to young for my reading and some felt like it was written for an older audience but in the ya genre.

Slow start, seeming like way to much being stuffed in at once; however, once you get into the story - the plot and characters draw you in.

You get to a point where you want to know what is coming next and don't want to stop reading. While the story is not my favorite from this author, I find myself rooting for some characters and hating others.

I like that while it is a historical romance of sorts, the women aren't weak and make their choices based on their wants. I like that the women have their smarts about them.

4 stars because itnwas well written and kept me interested. Great storyline and fun read.

This is a fairly magic-less version of Snow White, Lady Sophie, with a stepmother that is actually not really a bad guy and a lot of the tension in the story is more about grief and complex period politics. there's also the teen angst of a girl whose mother she misses and has been replaced by a younger woman who seems to be hogging the spotlight. so there's some jealousy there.
The orphans and the story of her learning the real life of peasants felt somewhat tacked in and just felt a little lacking.
its not a bad read but nothing stood out for me. probably a little too mundane for my tastes.
