Long review: Spoiler Alert Author: Olivia Dade, 2020 Disclaimer: ARC via Edelweiss, links affiliate
Content/Trigger warning(s): fatphobia and toxic family, both of which are addressed and dismantled in this book. The below review will touch broadly on these topics, and I’ll flag before I delve into anything specific.
This book is an homage to fat girls and fanfic and hero worship and, also, Jaime Lannister and Brienne of Tarth’s scuppered romantic arc. But it’s mostly the first thing.
Long review: Bridal Bootcamp Author: Meg Cabot, 2019 Stars: 1.5
The below contains medium-level spoilers (like, ‘in this scene she did this’, kind of spoiler, not ‘Darth is Luke’s dad’ level spoiler).
If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know I’m a huge Meg Cabot fan; have been since I was in Year 9 (8th grade).
I was a Meg Cabot message board member way back, and I even wrote fan fiction for my favourite of her books. I spent all my pocket money on her new releases; I could quote beloved passages from memory; THE WORKS.
