Yet as they adventure across the kingdom, they discover that they bring out the very best in the other person. They’ll need to join forces and use all the know-how, kindness, and bravery they have in order to defeat their greatest foe yet: a jealous sorceress, who wants to get rid of Sadie once and for all.

Join Sadie and Amira, two very different princesses with very different strengths, on their journey to figure out what happily ever after really means — and how they can find it with each other.

This is such an adorable, cute read and I adored the art style. This is an LGBT+ story where the Princess Sadie has been locked in a tower by an evil sorceress and is rescued by Princess Amira they then go on an adventure together to defeat the sorceress and find their happy endings.

Overall, this was a quick enjoyable read and I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.

When Lana and her father return to their seaside hometown to help clear the debris of a storm, the last thing she expects is to discover a colony of Aquicorns—magical seahorse-like residents of the coral reef. As she explores the damaged town and the fabled undersea palace, Lana learns that while she cannot always count on adults to be the guardians she needs, she herself is capable of finding the strength to protect both the ocean, and her own happiness.

*I would like to thank Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review*

Due to issues with downloading I wasn’t able to read this in time for the release, which is why this review is so late.

This is another adorable story which is gorgeously illustrated. The story follows Lana who returns to her home town with her dad after to help her aunt and the town to rebuild after a storm. It is here that she rescues an Aquicorn and learns that they are in danger due to the overfishing that the town is doing.

Overall, I adored this and loved the message of how we are negatively impacting on our oceans and how we can all be doing more to protect them. I gave this 4 out of 5 stars.

A charming all-ages book that follows the story of Greta, a blacksmith apprentice, and the people she meets as she becomes entwined in the enchanting world of tea dragons.

This was my favourite of Katie O’Neil’s books mostly because dragons are my weakness and teas dragons are the most adorable creatures I have ever seen. Again the illustrations within this book are gorgeous and is such a heart warming read. this follows Greta who is giving the change to learn the art of caring for tea dragons and the friends she meets along the way.

Overall, I absolutely loved this and want a tea dragon of my own. I gave this 5 out of 5 stars.
