Surprise OUABC? I’m still desperately trying to get rid of all the boxes in my room, so these will still (probably) be thrown in with other reviews!
As for this book, I don’t know much, as I normally do when I jump into these OUABC books. I do know that this box is a specialty box for Valentine’s Day, so I am assuming that there will be a romance of some kind. So I figure we’ll just jump in and get it read!
I am already feeling like I am going to like this one! It is similar to other books I have read on here (*cough, cough* Dream Factory by Brad Barkley and Heather Hepler) and I am excited to keep going! Also, I obviously ordered this months ago and I can’t remember them asking for my size, but it actually is a size I can wear, which normally doesn’t happen, so I’m excited. (P.S. this is a t-shirt, the picture doesn’t really show that) (Side note: after making this post, I had gone onto the OUABC page (for a completely different reason) and saw that they did ask for your t-shirt size)
This book is about Charlotte and Ginny, identical twin sisters who come from a line of pageant queens. Charlotte has 0 intention of being a pageant queen, and is instead an elementary school librarian who is there to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. However, Ginny gets an allergic reaction, and Charlotte is debating whether she should take place in the preliminary parts of the pageant in order for her sister to qualify for the finals, since this is the last year she could qualify. Also, there’s a cute boy.
I was getting real nervous for this one. That was a very small box for an ice bucket, but hey, it all worked out! Also, fun fact, a great way to stop a puppy fight is to try and convince them to put an ice bucket on their heads. Also, they won’t do it.
As for the story, Charlotte takes on the role of contestant for her sister. Turns out that the cute boy who also loves literature (is that even possible?) is also the judge for the pageant. And our girl Charlotte is falling hard. As for the pageant, Charlotte is finding herself making friends and doing well? But sometimes it is hard to distinguish herself from her sister, which could make the fling with Gray (cute boy) a little dicey.
Ummmm… I literally do not own anything to go with this headpiece. Also, even if I do, I doubt I could pull this off. But, hey, maybe this could be my calling and I really could pull this off!
As for the story, we just watched the preliminary talent portion, and Charlotte won!
Since I started this book, I was sure that I was going to get some type of alcohol, specifically wine. When I got to the point where I opened this gift, I thought that I was a magician because I was sure I was going to get champagne. Sadly, there is no alcohol in this box, but there is a champagne flute, so there is that.
Book wise, we learn that Ginny is going to continue the lie with their parents, and this gift came from Gray. So yea, don’t have much for you!
I’m going to say meh, and I am pretty sure that the only reason is because I am currently also reading Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and I literally listened to that book all day. Since that book is also about a set of twins and it features a love story, I found myself comparing the two for the last 50 pages. Which I know, isn’t fair. But I did it.
As for the book, it definitely played as a rom com movie. I read it super fast and I really enjoyed reading it.
I would probably give this book 3.5/4 out of 5 stars.
