Hello and happy Wednesday. Sorry for the boring thumbnail, but I recently gave away Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins, which is the book I’ll be reviewing today.
I loved this book and its characters from the beginning. We have Harper, the protagonist, who is annoyingly perfect in every way, and yet for some reason I found her super likeable. There’s also David Stark, a guy I think everyone’s had in their lives, and if I were back at school I would definitely enjoy having him around.
As always, I went into this book blindly, so at first I just thought it would be about high school, like your typical YA novel. Then, of course, everything gets way more interesting when sword fights and secret super powers start happening, and I don’t know if it’s because I’ve been way into Once Upon a Time lately, but anything involving fights and magic makes me happy.
I also appreciate when some depth is added to a story, and in this case there’s a family situation going on that makes everything more real and relatable, even when there are swords and secret super powers involved.
And of course, we all know what’s going to make me really love this story: some old-fashioned romance. We had to wait for this one, we had to fight for this one, but we got it and it was just perfect. It was the kind of I-can’t-stop-smiling romance I love reading about. This is the first book in a series, so I will keep talking about Harper and David in the future.
Have you read Rebel Belle or are you interested in reading it? Let me know in the comments.
Love, Miss Camila
