    ****4 How many love interests can a girl have Stars**** Yes, in the beginning, I was really annoyed with Selah's character. I found her whiny and childish for being 18 years old and getting ready to get married. Then I have to question how easy it was for her to continue to fall in ...

    The Beholder promises a romantic sea adventure la The Selection, which it sadly only delivers when it comes to the negatives like bad world building. ?I have seen how we look side by side and it has changed how I imagine my life. With you, I see a wider world.? This ...

    You can also read my review here:https://devouringbooks2017.wordpress.... This book was so much better than I had expected it to be. The cover made me think that the entire book took place on a ship, but in reality very little of it did. The Beholder is about Selah traveling to find...

    ARC received in exchange for an honest review - thank you! Buckle up, folks. This isn?t going to be a review. This is going to be a rant. Let me start with my biggest issue. They seem to have taken it off the blurb now, but this book was marketed as an Odyssey retelling....

    Me: Never judge a book by its cover! Me: I totally just did and want it now! Seriously when I saw this cover, I knew I had to have it! Then I read the blurb and was like, ohhhh I have to have it even more! I mean, The Odyssey meets Cinderella? Heck to the freaking yeah! Enjoyed ...

    This book was provided by the publisher (via Edelweiss). This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I should be clear that the primary reason I was interested inThe Beholder(beyond the beautiful cover) was that I saw it marketed as a re-telling of...

    While this book got better with each page, the pacing was a little GoT S8! We kept reaching our conclusions too soon without enough background to buy into the character development or plot twist. That being said, it was a quick, enjoyable summer read! ...

    I really enjoyed this! The Beholder is an enchanting read, full of myths and folklore. The premise drew me in quickly. Basically, we have Selah, who is the Seneshal-elect of Potomac (meaning she'll be placed in charge one day). Potomac (from what I gather) is an island somewhere be...

    Gorgeous book!!! This was such a lovely retelling mash-up of different fairy tales and myths into one! My first to read one like this and I did not know it could be done. But it was and it worked so well! YA readers and fairy tale lovers don't let this one slip by, it is too enc...

    It's important for people to know exactly what they're getting into, so to avoid confusion: this book is not a retelling of a specific story. Rather, it incorporates many myths and fairy tales into the storyline. Also, it is most certainly not a retelling of The Odyssey- the characters...

    What did I just read? I'm not sure how to categorize it. Hmmm. This book would have been five stars had it not strayed course at the very end and become what exactly? Political, I suppose. This is the story of a young Seneschal-elect of Potomac who is promised to marry a young man f...
