hearted breathe of fresh air romantic comedy This one actually had a bitto it with a theme of discovering one s self and connecting with family plot along with the romance when a set of identical twins swap places.Charlotte and Ginny Gorman are identical twins but completely opposite in every way they can be The sisters had lost their mother at an early age and Charlotte had gotten close with their father gaining a love for learning and books while Ginny began to idolize their beauty pageant winning mother.Now at twenty nine Ginny is signed up to compete in the Miss American Treasure her mother had won years before one last time before she is too old to join Charlotte has decided to use her vacation time to join Ginny in Orlando and root her on, oh and visit Harry Potter world too of course.Unfortunately for Ginny when the girls share a meal Ginny becomes allergic to something in the food and swells up tremendously to where she can t compete Seeing her sister s dream in danger Charlotte agrees to step in for a few days but never expected to find herself falling for a judge.From the moment Charlotte arrived in the opening pages until the very end this one was just a ton of fun It was so nice to have the whole competition environment but with all the contestants supporting one another instead of fighting or bickering And I will say Buttercup Fang stole the show quite often in the story too, adorable The romance is mostly light flirting while the rest of the plot takes the forefront but definitely enjoyable to follow too.I received an advance copy from the

see her sister compete in an upcoming beauty pageant Unfortunately, Ginny comes down with hives at the last minute and Charlotte is forced to take Ginny s place in the competition I was reminded of Miss Congeniality a little bit in this one and was very heavy with Harry Potter Jane Austen jokes I m not sure how I felt about this I think it was bit overboard with all the references to H.P and Jane Austen There is a romance aspect to this novel but wasn t the focus of the novel The scenes between Charlotte and Gray were so mild and was disappointing I feel that Gray s character was a bit underdeveloped and was hoping to see their relationship flourishI m not a believer of a falling in deep love over a 2 day period This kind of annoyed me I feel the romance side barely touched the surface here Which maybe was the author s intention Overall, this was a cute and fluffy read 3.25 stars rounded up Thank you to Netgalley and Gallery Publishing for the opportunity to read this arc in

waiting to germinate for years As the land is being ravaged, it s already starting over It s being reborn and rising from the ashes even before the flames burn away So every time I see a forest ablaze on television or pass a section of charred earth when I m driving, I remember what it means the forest is evolving It s becoming stronger The best is yet to come Audiobook narrated by Joy Osmanski As

4 stars Not sure Thanks to Gallery Books for the free review copy TW Disordered eatingThis book was so stinking cute and addicting I read 200 pages in one sitting because the Texan, Harry Potter loving main character was so fun to follow and the inner monologue was witty and adorable This book was so entertaining and relatable, even when it would sometimes cross over into the territory of trying too hard to be funny It definitely kept my interest the entire book and was just the perfect amount of awkwardness and sass This book in general is very fast paced and easy to devour, which I did in pretty much 12 hours The downside of this is that a lot of the pageant is skimmed over and the character development, outside of the main character s own thoughts, is veery shallow Especially with the love interest, I feel like there was a lot of room to explore the people around Charlotte rather than her own inner monologue I have two main problems with this book taking place at a beauty pageant First, the main character who is bookish and awkward is SO critical about the fashion and makeup world, and especially her own sister and the pageant she s in, including things even like social media It fell into the category of girls who feel like you can either be bookish OR like makeup, not both, which I think is totally false This was never confronted really, but Charlotte does becomeaccepting as the book goes along Also, I think this book inadvertently created a really bad message about eating as a beauty queen This book attempted to dispel a lot of stereotypes about beauty pageants like girl on girl hate and fakeness, which I think for the most part it did successfully, except for the stereotype that models don t eat Several times throughout the book, the girls talk about not eating or when they do, eating tiny portions There s a scene where the main character eats candy and then has a moment of i can t believe I did that It just felt weird that this book was trying to say that beauty queens don t succumb to stereotypes, and yet every other scene was someone talking about not eating or the main character is shamed for being hungry I would say avoid this book if you re uncomfortable with disordered eating or mentions of anorexia because this book definitely had a lot of questionable eating habits in it that were never challenged or talked about as negative.Still, I loved the main character s growth and this book had me smiling and getting teary eyed at many points I put the book down because I had secondhand embarrassment at times and even clutched the book to my chest when it was over Despite its weaknesses, it really shone through as an easy to consume, lighthearted story that still had some depth Although this book was insta lovey and had a pretty generic unrealistic romance, I didn t mind suspending my disbelief because it was just so much fun The book is pretty much rated G with its romance, so it was just a nice book that i ll remember for its outgoing main character and how much fun I experienced while reading it Tl dr A short, sweet contemporary that s got a romance but better still, is refreshingly women positive.I admit, I expected The Accidental Beauty Queen to be a quick, easy read And it was, but unlike so many chick lit novels, or even sad to say many contemporary romances, this one was refreshingly devoid of any beautiful ugly on the inside female characters.The gist Charlotte and Ginny are identical twin sisters, but Charlotte is an elementary school librarian librarian yay and Ginny Tl dr A short,

sisters, but Charlotte is an elementary school librarian librarian yay and Ginny works the beauty pageant circuit and rakes in the dough via her sponsored Instagram content, natch and at first, I thought, oh great, a smart trumps pretty story Sort of interesting with the whole identical thing but yetAnd then something interesting happens When Charlotte has to enter the pageant in Ginny s place, she finds out that a being in a beauty pageant isthan just the requisite makeover scene it s actually not that easy And it s not awful In fact, all the contestants she meets are nice, smart, and best of all, supportive What could have easily been such an easy out Ms Wilson doesn t take it, and I applaud her for it.Instead, the drama comes from Charlotte herself, as she finds herself falling for someone she shouldn t and feels terrible about lying even as she continues to do so Side note Ginny says her favorite book is Fifty Shades of Grey am I the only person on the planet who hasn t read it and the main male character s name is Grey I lol ed over that because even I know the main male character in Fifty Shades is named Grey something and this seemed like Ms Wilson taking a gentle swipe at the books That was a long side note, I know Anyway The romance is G rated, PG at most, and predictable, but honestly, who doesn t like a easy going romance once in a while And bonus, not outside angst from a bautiful yet mean woman, whoo This is going to go over well with fans of Sophie Kinsella, Bridget Jones s Diary which is now over 20 years old , possibly The Hating Game, as well as fans of The Kiss Quotient who don t mind a fluffier read.Sweet but not cloying and another yay for the female positivity Very cute Ginny and Charlotte are identical twins Although they look alike, their lives have taken very different directions Ginny spends her time competing in beauty pageants and has worked hard to achieve some success Her goal is to win the upcoming Miss American Treasure pageant a title previously won by her mother Charlotte isintroverted and is happy working as a librarian where she can enjoy her precious books With little social overlap, the two sisters are

and cleverly amusing tale The writing was refreshingly crisp and laden with smart wit, skillful levity, and heart squeezing and insightful observations I was quickly enad with Ms Wilson s agile word
