I always enjoy strong female characters and with a world against them, I love to see how they rise above and become more than they could imagine. A Dastardly Plot is one of those stories.

Book Review: The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom

I love fairy tales and especially am a fan of retellings, so I was very excited to read this book, which looked like it would be a hilarious middle grade novel. I can't say which prince I loved more. They all had some odd qualities that made me laugh at times. None of them were all that normal in the way of princes. I loved how the princesses were at times a bit more on the strong side.
