Read with Tracie Marie Please | Vol. 11

It’s now time for a long overdue Read with Tracie Marie Please! Sometimes I read so fast, I end up forgetting to write a quick review of the book, and boy have I read some good ones in the past month. From romance, mystery, to fantasy, there’s a little something for everyone in this batch. Let’s get started..

“The phrasing annoyed Sage. As long as she was pretty and in a good mood, her husband would love her? People needed love most when they weren’t at their best.”

The Traitor’s Kiss by Erin Beaty

5 out of 5 stars

Recommend? I’ve been looking for a sort-of royal/kingdom/princess book and this totally filled my craving! I really enjoyed this book and I am excited that they are turning this into a series. People have said it’s a re-telling of Mulan but I totally disagree; the only similarities are that Sage goes to a matchmaker, but then ends up working for her. The rest is full of some serious royal spying and a little romance!

“Maybe that was closer to the truth–we weren’t captor and captive, but two animals in different compartments of the same cage. Hers was just slightly larger.”

The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

5 out of 5 stars

Recommend? I read this book in 2 days – I literally could not put it down. It was such a good suspenseful mystery read. I’m looking forward to reading more of Ruth Ware’s work.

What is eternal life but a prolonged death.”

Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones

4 out of 5 stars

Recommend? I’m not usually a huge fantasy person, but I really liked this book about the Goblin King and his music. The cover is gorgeous as well!

“Maybe the only way you really know you love someone is it they can break you with a single sentence.”

Bad Romance by Heather Demetrios

5 out of 5 stars

Recommend? This was a hard one for me to read, just because of the abusive relationship that the main character is in. But this book is very important and is certainly empowering and hopeful.

“Riley Stone is just about perfect.”

Such a Good Girl by Amanda K. Morgan

5 out of 5 stars

Recommend? I’m always a fan of an unreliable narrator, and Riley Stone is about as twisted as you can be. Prepare to be creeped out by this “perfect” high school student in this Lifetime movie of a novel.

“It’s like he never wanted anything, but only thought and fretted about what he should want, what other people wanted him to want.”

White Fur by Jardine Libaire

2 out of 5 stars

Recommend? No. I loved the cover of this book, and that was about it. I’m honestly surprised I finished it. The two main characters were unlikeable and unrealistic. And for once, I found myself not caring at all whether they ended up together or not. Skip this one!

“The impossible could not have happened, therefore the impossible must be possible in spite of appearances.”

Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie

5 out of 5 stars

Recommend? Yes. If you haven’t seen the movie yet or no the ending, please read the book first! This was so much better than the movie – and I can’t wait to read more of Christie’s mysteries soon.

“Libraries were havens for everyone, he might’ve told her, not just the clean and productive.”

Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore by Matthew J. Sullivan

5 out of 5 stars

Recommend? I LOVED this book. It was surprising, heartfelt, and involved a dark and mysterious death. Plus it all takes place in a massive bookstore.

“His declaration pierced through the muscle of her heart like a skillfully thrown knife. It was the kind of pain that made her feel alive.”

There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins

5 out of 5 stars

Recommend? Imagine Scream as a YA book…but a little more twisted.
