What Romance Book Should I Read and Review for February? (Poll)

Hey everyone! So it’s a couple weeks out from February, and since I want to start reading right in the first week of February, I’m going to be doing these polls a couple of weeks before the month starts.

Anyways, so as everyone knows, Valentines Day is in February, so I decided to make that my Romance genre reading month! I’ve got five books here for you all to choose from, so pick which one you’d like most to see a review on!

Choice #1: The Princess Game: A Reimagining of Sleeping Beauty by Melanie Cellier

They call her the Sleeping Princess, but Celeste is far from asleep…

Celeste has been cursed since her sixteenth birthday–just not in the way the rest of the kingdom thinks. All they see is her breath-taking beauty, marred by her foolishness. Only she knows that she retains her brilliant mind. And it’s a secret she must keep at all costs.

Over the years she’s grown accustomed to the necessary deception. After all, her life depends on it. And she’s even found a way to protect her kingdom, working from the shadows. But now a dangerous new threat has emerged, one that Celeste can’t defeat alone. She needs the help of a newly-arrived prince. One who’s altogether too handsome and too charming. Somehow she needs to keep her secret, save her kingdom and find a way to free herself from the curse. The last thing she has time to do is sleep.

In this reimagining of the classic fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty, it’s only the princess’ mind that is asleep. And sometimes appearances can be deceiving.

As you may know already, I really like fairy tale retellings… as long as they’re done right. Of all the classic fairy tales (such as Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty), Sleeping Beauty has always been my favorite, so this book intrigued me!

Choice #2: Belle & Beast by Rebecca Fittery

A war hero. A prince with a secret. A distressed damsel intent on beating the odds. They’re not the fairytale characters you’re used to.
After proving himself a hero during the war, Eddie Marchand returns home to marry his childhood sweetheart, Lady Belle.
Lady Belle chafes at the life she’s led in a quiet backwater, patiently waiting to restore her family’s fortune.
When a beastly Prince disrupts their lives attempting to protect his secret, Belle makes a choice that plunges her into a world of magic and mystery. Will Eddie save his childhood sweetheart from a life of horror? Will the Prince resist the fate foretold to him? Can Belle crack the secrets of her new home and save them all?
The threat of war is building again. This time the entire continent may be at stake—unless long buried secrets are exposed and predjudices put aside for good.

Yup, another fairy tale retelling! This one looks kinda interesting, so I added it to the list!

Choice #3: All Dressed in White by Mary Higgins Clark

Five years ago Amanda Pierce was excitedly preparing to marry her college sweetheart in a lavish ceremony at The Grand Victoria Hotel in Palm Beach. Then, with their guests and families on site, Amanda disappeared.

In present-day New York City, Laurie Moran realizes a missing bride is the perfect cold case for her investigative television series, Under Suspicion. She and her team set out to recreate the night of the disappearance at the Florida resort with Amanda’s friends and family in attendance, hoping to shed new light on the mystery as the series has done in past episodes. With a jealous sister, playboy groomsmen, Amanda’s former fiancé now married to a bridesmaid, and rumors about the “beloved” bride herself, Laurie and Under Suspicion host Alex Buckley quickly realize everyone has a theory about why Amanda vanished into thin air.

One thing is certain: whoever was behind Amanda’s disappearance plans to keep the truth hidden “until death do they part…”

My grandma gave me this book, so I wanted to try it, especially since it looks like a mystery as well, and I like mysteries!

Choice #4: The Wolf’s Daughter by Kendra E. Ardnek

Red is the first thing the wolf sees.

This is the story of a wolf who’s more than he knows, and a little girl in a red cloak who brings those secrets to light. Fairy tales don’t always happen the way the way they’re told, and sometimes the villain is the true hero.

Yes, another fairy tale retelling, but this one caught my attention in that its focusing on the villains point of view. As someone who usually likes villains (I think it has something to do with my personality as an INTJ) this short story really caught my attention so someday I’d like to read it!

Choice #5: Snow White With the Red Hair Vol 3 by Sorata Akiduki

A romantic retelling of a classic fairy tale about a beautiful herbalist and a lovestruck prince.

Shirayuki is an herbalist famous for her naturally bright-red hair, and the prince of Tanbarun wants her all to himself! Unwilling to become the prince’s possession, she seeks shelter in the woods of the neighboring kingdom, where she gains an unlikely ally—the prince of that kingdom! He rescues her from her plight, and thus begins the love story between a lovestruck prince and an unusual herbalist.

Shirayuki’s life as a court herbalist in Clarines seems to be going well. She works hard at her job and gets to spend her free time with Zen. But when Zen’s brother, crown prince Izana, returns to the castle, he has a lot to say about his brother’s new friend. Will Shirayuki be able to overcome this new obstacle in her relationship with Zen?!

Okay, yes, I know it says it’s a retelling of a classic fairy tale (Snow White, obviously) BUT, honestly, after the first half of the first book, it has nothing to do with Snow White anymore. I’ve read books one and two, and it’s actually a really adorable series, and my parents got me the entire rest of the series for Christmas, so I can’t wait to dig into these! And Mitsuhide and Kiki on the cover I just love! And from the anime series I’ve seen… Izana’s going to be a quick favorite (haha remember how I said I tend to like villain characters? XP) If you’d like to read my review on the first book, click here!

The day of the deadline, I will write the winning book in the comments, so stay tuned for that!
