I was looking for something sweet, light and full of young love ♥️ and this book was exactly what I was looking for! And I absolutely love the cover 😍 I loved every minute of it. I absolutely love fairytale retellings and this one was just amazing 😍 And to tell you just how much I loved it, I read this book in one sitting and I haven’t done that in ages! 😊
I feel in love with #TheRealCinderella and Baller929 and her #BFF squad. They are so lovable and adorable to read about!
If you’re someone like me who has longed to find a book that is like the movie A Cinderella Story this is the book. Though it was very cliché storyline it didn’t feel corny or anything like that. It just had the right amount of everything to make it an attention grabbing sweet love story that had me glued to the pages 🥰
I can’t put into words how much I loved this book but I highly recommended reading it. I adored the friendships that were made throughout this story and I can’t wait to read each of their books.
I'm a huge sucker for fairytale retellings, especially Cinderella or Beauty and the Beast ones So when I saw this book on Bookbub for free? Yeah I was all over it!
This book had very "A Cinderella Story" movie vibes. I could easily picture the movie in my head, but instead of a white, blonde-haired girl, Daniela, or Ella is a Puerto Rican, tan skinned, brunette girl.
Ella lives with her (evil) stepmother, Sophia, and (evil) stepsisters Lindsay and Courtney. After her father passed away on her 11th birthday, she is left under their care. And because her father didn't leave them any money in case something happened to him, Ella is forced to withstand all the verbal abuse from her step family, since it only through their help she can pay for college in 2 years.
Ella is a geeky girl, who loves maths and computers. And she usually doesn't have many close friends, but her one true friend is not someone she can talk to in person, but online. They know everything about each other, except their names. Baller929 and #TheRealCinderella get along really well, they speak and laugh and Ella helps him with his maths homework. But afraid to ruin a wonderful friendship, she doesn't tell him who she really is or even which school she goes to.
But what happens if they eventually have to meet? Will she let him know who she is? Will she open up to him?
I really enjoyed this modern-take of Cinderella, it was fun and lovely. Had hints of humour, a little angst but Ella's group of friends and her conversations with Baller929 make it worth reading
An enjoyable read, really want to read more about Ella's story and her friends
