The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen

I am such a softie! Despite my snark and absolute impatience with bad writing I adore sugar and spice and everything nice. This little book had those in spades.

It was somewhere btwn a 3 and 4 star read for me, this book was light and fluffy and sugary sweet. Absolute brain candy and oh-so-enjoyable.

Josey lives like the town princess – locked away in a tower to be speculated over and murmured about, but with no friends and no love. A fairy-godperson of sorts arrives to shake everything up.

I usually hate the mom-drama plot line bc it’s overdone and unrealistic. Here it felt real, and it was low-key.

This is an absolute fluff of a book. Mystical realism. Candy. Crushes. And snowball fights. However, the writing is lyrical and easy, the characters are charming, and at points the love story actually made me go “awwwww” as I read. It was the right book at the right time. I’ve already requested two more books from this author.
