Mark This Book Monday: Mini Reviews of Witch Rising by Amber Argyle & Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover!

As my second entry for this week's Mark This Book Monday I'm gonna have a mini reviews entry.


Witch Rising (Witch Song #2.5)Witch Rising by Amber Argyle

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Witch Rising is a prequel novella, and you can read it on its own. It's gonna be a fast read, full of action that starts on page one and doesn't really stop till the last page.

Lilette starts the story as a young girls running away with her parents and it seems that she can't really escape one threat or another, even less the one she feels within herself.

It's a short novella but it feels even shorter cause you just fly through it! I can't wait to read Witch Fall now, to see how Lilette's story continues!

3.5 stars



Finding Cinderella (Hopeless, #2.5)Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Quite to my own surprise I actually loved this novella. I'm not a big fan of contemporary romances and even less those based on insta-love, but this one was told in such a way and the characters were written in such a way that I couldn't help but love them and enjoy the story immensely.

Daniel was hiding in a janitor room when a girl came to hide in it and they feel a connection and pretend to be in love with each other to see how it feels. Then his own Cinderella disappears to never be seen again. One year later, Daniel meets Six and their connection is instantaneous.

I loved reading the interactions between Daniel & Six. Both are hilarious and Daniel's family made laugh out loud while reading. There's witty dialogue, there's quite an unexpected emotional twist right there but there's a resolution based on dialogue and trust, and that's a very good example I think.

Now after reading this one, I feel like I must read Hopeless & Losing Hope! 4 stars to this novella that can be read as a stand alone.

  1. If I am to read prequel novellas, which I rarely do, then I prefer them to be action packed, just like Witch Rising. As for Colleen Hoover, I don't really read NA, no matter how good it sounds.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Yay I loved Hopeless and I really want o read Finding Cinderella! I hear it's a great novella and even though I very rarely read novellas I'll be making an exception for this one! And I'm glad you liked Witch Rising I've been meaning to give that series a try - initially because of the cover for book 1 haha.

  4. Yes, Pili! You must read Hopeless next! I'm so glad you gave this novella a try and look how it turned out! Daniel and Six were such a compatible little cute couple, I adored them from the first page. The history between them made their story even more special and sort of heart breaking. I can't wait to see what you think of Holder and Sky! Great review :)

    1. Agreed, Aman! I'm so glad I gave this novella a chance! I actually I'm very keen on reading about Holder & Sky after seeing them interact in the novella! Will be getting Hopeless soon!

  5. I want to read Finding Cinderella, but I heard that you enjoy it more when you already read Hopeless... and I haven't read Hopeless, so I hope I can read both soon.
    I'm so glad you liked it!
