    In this sequel to ?Alex and Eliza? Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schulyer are newly married, but war continues to separate them. Alex is on the battlefront and Eliza is at home. Please excuse typos/name misspellings. Entered on screen reader. ...

    It was nice to read the sequel but I was not into this one as much as the first book. I think it was because fans are now moving away from the new love courting Alex and Eliza found in book one on to the more serious grownup stuff. I wonder if there will be a next book in which Maria R...

    I didn't know Alex & Eliza had a sequel! ...

    3.5 historical stars I have read a few book about the Elizabeth and Alexander Hamilton. Ron Chernov's Alexander Hamilton gave one a wonderful perspective into the life and the times of this great American forefather. I, Eliza Hamilton introduced us to Eliza and provided her point of...

    3 stars - Honestly nothing much happened. Some parts felt repetitive and the ending didn't feel exactly final - However, I did love the characters! They were charming and fun to read about and I did enjoy reading the book - I loved the banter and the focus on feminism - I really ...

    DNF 30%. I absolutely loved the first book. I gave it five stars it was so good. But I just couldn't continue on with this. I got so bored. idk maybe one day I'll decide to pick it back up, who knows :-/ ...

    3.5 I loved how sassy Eliza was. Eliza called out Governor Clinton. I loved how they defined democracy but they didn't even know what it was. They thought it was compromise and respecting each other's opinions. I liked how Alex thought he saw her but it was the painting the jailbird m...

    I?ve really enjoyed this series so far and can?t wait for the third book. I love history and YA so this was super appealing to me. I liked the focus of this novel on the early stages of the Hamiltons? young marriage (even though the author took liberties with the timeline for...

    If I had been taught American History through the telling of a love story, I feel I would have remembered a lot more. History lesson (with some noted fictional elements) that was actually quite captivating. ...

    Look, I'm not sure why I read this book when I hated Alex & Eliza so profoundly; I think I was just wildly, morbidly curious as to how the fuck this story can even CONTINUE TO BE WRITTEN AS A YOUNG ADULT BOOK, SERIOUSLY, THE PREMISE IS SO GODDAMN BONKERS!! I can't believe Melissa d...

    Yikes I?m putting this on hold because I?m bored out of my freaking mind ???????????????????????????????????????????????? HOW DID I ONLY JUST FIND OUT THAT THIS EXISTED???????? I A...

    It was interesting to see Alex and Eliza as newlyweds navigating their new life together. This is less about the romance and more about their day to day lives as a married couple. I very seldom read historical fiction about real people, but I think the author did a good job with Ha...

    I was hoping this book to reach higher than my low expectations, but it didn't. It was slow moving, and nothing happened. I only enjoyed when Alex was helping Mrs. Childress because there was some jealousy and action. Overall I didn't think it was worth reading. ...

    DNF 123 PAGES IN I actually really like this book but I lost all on interest in it so I'm moving it to my DNF shelf until I feel like picking it back up ...

    *3.5* This was a nice read just a bit boring and uneventful. I thought it would cover the affair as well but I suppose that will be next book. This mostly surrounded Eliza being lonely and Hamilton being away all the time lol. Nice read just not super amazing. ...

    Love & War: An Alex & Eliza Story is the second installment of the epic love story of Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler by Melissa De La Cruz. The story picks up after the marriage of Eliza and Alex as Eliza?s family is preparing a farewell party for Alex, who is retu...

    Review also posted to Booked J. As you all know, one of my favourite YA releases last year was Melissa de la Cruz's Alex & Eliza. For a hot minute, I hadn't realized that it was set up to be a series of novels vs. a standalone. Melissa de la Cruz is perhaps one of my most-purch...

    *3.5 Although I didn't love this as much as the first one, I still enjoyed my time reading this. I would recommend this series if you have a passion for the American Revolution and enjoy learning about it, because I could defiantly see how some might find these books info-dumpy and...

    Well this was just paaaaaainful for me. After disliking so much of the second half of book one, I'm not sure why I continued. Especially since I wasn't remotely engaged at all. I blame audio and morbid curiosity for seeing it to the end. The names and places and some historical fact su...

    FirstLine ~ Forget Paris. This book is fantastic. It was one of those books that I was not sure what to expect and adored it cover to cover. I loved that there was history mixed into the story in such a way that makes history come alive. The love story is so compelling and the book ...

    *Actual Rating 3.5 stars It was cute but that was it?? At the end of the book it did say that there's going to be a third book, and if she doesn't make the cover yellow, I'm going to be extremely disappointed. ...

    So much fun. While not the most historically accurate, it was interesting and made me excited for the next book and seeing Hamilton in October. Would recommend to any fans of the show or history geeks 4/5 Stars ...

    I?d like to thank Penguin Teen for sending me an early copy and allowing me to participate in the official blog tour for this installment in the Alex & Eliza series. First of all, I?ll reiterate again that I have not read the biography of Alexander Hamilton that is popular a...

    YA to adult, dramatized history. great story, surprising twists ...

    I thought the first one was kind of cute, this one not so much. ...

    3.5 / 5 stars I didn't love this quite as much as Alex & Eliza, but it was still good - better than I was expecting based on some of the reviews, in fact! I feel like the main point of this book was to change the setting of the story, as well as Alex and Eliza's general place in...

    I enjoyed getting to listen to this twist on the Hamilton's lives. It was interesting reading a YA book about characters who are no longer the typical teenagers. Alex and Eliza in this are at least 19 or close to 20, as far as I could gather. I liked getting to see what Melissa de la C...

    As much as I love Hamilton and have enjoyed a few other works of fiction about his life and relationship, I was pretty disappointed in this one. Considering it's classified as YA, I have a hard time believing most of its target audience would find it enjoyable. It reads more like the W...

    Is this Alexander Hamilton historical fan fiction? Yes. Are there winks to the musical which is also historical fan fiction? Yes. Is this the second book in a series? Yes. Did I enjoy it, and will read the next one? Yes and probably. ...

    In this sequel to ?Alex and Eliza? Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schulyer are newly married, but war continues to separate them. Alex is on the battlefront and Eliza is at home. Please excuse typos/name misspellings. Entered on screen reader. ...

    It was nice to read the sequel but I was not into this one as much as the first book. I think it was because fans are now moving away from the new love courting Alex and Eliza found in book one on to the more serious grownup stuff. I wonder if there will be a next book in which Maria R...

    I didn't know Alex & Eliza had a sequel! ...

    3.5 historical stars I have read a few book about the Elizabeth and Alexander Hamilton. Ron Chernov's Alexander Hamilton gave one a wonderful perspective into the life and the times of this great American forefather. I, Eliza Hamilton introduced us to Eliza and provided her point of...

    3 stars - Honestly nothing much happened. Some parts felt repetitive and the ending didn't feel exactly final - However, I did love the characters! They were charming and fun to read about and I did enjoy reading the book - I loved the banter and the focus on feminism - I really ...

    DNF 30%. I absolutely loved the first book. I gave it five stars it was so good. But I just couldn't continue on with this. I got so bored. idk maybe one day I'll decide to pick it back up, who knows :-/ ...

    3.5 I loved how sassy Eliza was. Eliza called out Governor Clinton. I loved how they defined democracy but they didn't even know what it was. They thought it was compromise and respecting each other's opinions. I liked how Alex thought he saw her but it was the painting the jailbird m...

    I?ve really enjoyed this series so far and can?t wait for the third book. I love history and YA so this was super appealing to me. I liked the focus of this novel on the early stages of the Hamiltons? young marriage (even though the author took liberties with the timeline for...

    If I had been taught American History through the telling of a love story, I feel I would have remembered a lot more. History lesson (with some noted fictional elements) that was actually quite captivating. ...

    Look, I'm not sure why I read this book when I hated Alex & Eliza so profoundly; I think I was just wildly, morbidly curious as to how the fuck this story can even CONTINUE TO BE WRITTEN AS A YOUNG ADULT BOOK, SERIOUSLY, THE PREMISE IS SO GODDAMN BONKERS!! I can't believe Melissa d...

    It was interesting to see Alex and Eliza as newlyweds navigating their new life together. This is less about the romance and more about their day to day lives as a married couple. I very seldom read historical fiction about real people, but I think the author did a good job with Ha...

    I was hoping this book to reach higher than my low expectations, but it didn't. It was slow moving, and nothing happened. I only enjoyed when Alex was helping Mrs. Childress because there was some jealousy and action. Overall I didn't think it was worth reading. ...

    Well this was just paaaaaainful for me. After disliking so much of the second half of book one, I'm not sure why I continued. Especially since I wasn't remotely engaged at all. I blame audio and morbid curiosity for seeing it to the end. The names and places and some historical fact su...

    FirstLine ~ Forget Paris. This book is fantastic. It was one of those books that I was not sure what to expect and adored it cover to cover. I loved that there was history mixed into the story in such a way that makes history come alive. The love story is so compelling and the book ...

    I enjoyed getting to listen to this twist on the Hamilton's lives. It was interesting reading a YA book about characters who are no longer the typical teenagers. Alex and Eliza in this are at least 19 or close to 20, as far as I could gather. I liked getting to see what Melissa de la C...

    As much as I love Hamilton and have enjoyed a few other works of fiction about his life and relationship, I was pretty disappointed in this one. Considering it's classified as YA, I have a hard time believing most of its target audience would find it enjoyable. It reads more like the W...

    It was nice to read the sequel but I was not into this one as much as the first book. I think it was because fans are now moving away from the new love courting Alex and Eliza found in book one on to the more serious grownup stuff. I wonder if there will be a next book in which Maria R...

    I didn't know Alex & Eliza had a sequel! ...

    3.5 historical stars I have read a few book about the Elizabeth and Alexander Hamilton. Ron Chernov's Alexander Hamilton gave one a wonderful perspective into the life and the times of this great American forefather. I, Eliza Hamilton introduced us to Eliza and provided her point of...

    3 stars - Honestly nothing much happened. Some parts felt repetitive and the ending didn't feel exactly final - However, I did love the characters! They were charming and fun to read about and I did enjoy reading the book - I loved the banter and the focus on feminism - I really ...

    DNF 30%. I absolutely loved the first book. I gave it five stars it was so good. But I just couldn't continue on with this. I got so bored. idk maybe one day I'll decide to pick it back up, who knows :-/ ...

    3.5 I loved how sassy Eliza was. Eliza called out Governor Clinton. I loved how they defined democracy but they didn't even know what it was. They thought it was compromise and respecting each other's opinions. I liked how Alex thought he saw her but it was the painting the jailbird m...

    I?ve really enjoyed this series so far and can?t wait for the third book. I love history and YA so this was super appealing to me. I liked the focus of this novel on the early stages of the Hamiltons? young marriage (even though the author took liberties with the timeline for...

    If I had been taught American History through the telling of a love story, I feel I would have remembered a lot more. History lesson (with some noted fictional elements) that was actually quite captivating. ...

    Look, I'm not sure why I read this book when I hated Alex & Eliza so profoundly; I think I was just wildly, morbidly curious as to how the fuck this story can even CONTINUE TO BE WRITTEN AS A YOUNG ADULT BOOK, SERIOUSLY, THE PREMISE IS SO GODDAMN BONKERS!! I can't believe Melissa d...

    Yikes I?m putting this on hold because I?m bored out of my freaking mind ???????????????????????????????????????????????? HOW DID I ONLY JUST FIND OUT THAT THIS EXISTED???????? I A...

    It was interesting to see Alex and Eliza as newlyweds navigating their new life together. This is less about the romance and more about their day to day lives as a married couple. I very seldom read historical fiction about real people, but I think the author did a good job with Ha...

    I was hoping this book to reach higher than my low expectations, but it didn't. It was slow moving, and nothing happened. I only enjoyed when Alex was helping Mrs. Childress because there was some jealousy and action. Overall I didn't think it was worth reading. ...

    DNF 123 PAGES IN I actually really like this book but I lost all on interest in it so I'm moving it to my DNF shelf until I feel like picking it back up ...

    *3.5* This was a nice read just a bit boring and uneventful. I thought it would cover the affair as well but I suppose that will be next book. This mostly surrounded Eliza being lonely and Hamilton being away all the time lol. Nice read just not super amazing. ...

    Love & War: An Alex & Eliza Story is the second installment of the epic love story of Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler by Melissa De La Cruz. The story picks up after the marriage of Eliza and Alex as Eliza?s family is preparing a farewell party for Alex, who is retu...

    Review also posted to Booked J. As you all know, one of my favourite YA releases last year was Melissa de la Cruz's Alex & Eliza. For a hot minute, I hadn't realized that it was set up to be a series of novels vs. a standalone. Melissa de la Cruz is perhaps one of my most-purch...

    *3.5 Although I didn't love this as much as the first one, I still enjoyed my time reading this. I would recommend this series if you have a passion for the American Revolution and enjoy learning about it, because I could defiantly see how some might find these books info-dumpy and...

    Well this was just paaaaaainful for me. After disliking so much of the second half of book one, I'm not sure why I continued. Especially since I wasn't remotely engaged at all. I blame audio and morbid curiosity for seeing it to the end. The names and places and some historical fact su...

    FirstLine ~ Forget Paris. This book is fantastic. It was one of those books that I was not sure what to expect and adored it cover to cover. I loved that there was history mixed into the story in such a way that makes history come alive. The love story is so compelling and the book ...

    *Actual Rating 3.5 stars It was cute but that was it?? At the end of the book it did say that there's going to be a third book, and if she doesn't make the cover yellow, I'm going to be extremely disappointed. ...

    So much fun. While not the most historically accurate, it was interesting and made me excited for the next book and seeing Hamilton in October. Would recommend to any fans of the show or history geeks 4/5 Stars ...

    I?d like to thank Penguin Teen for sending me an early copy and allowing me to participate in the official blog tour for this installment in the Alex & Eliza series. First of all, I?ll reiterate again that I have not read the biography of Alexander Hamilton that is popular a...

    In this sequel to ?Alex and Eliza? Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schulyer are newly married, but war continues to separate them. Alex is on the battlefront and Eliza is at home. Please excuse typos/name misspellings. Entered on screen reader. ...

    It was nice to read the sequel but I was not into this one as much as the first book. I think it was because fans are now moving away from the new love courting Alex and Eliza found in book one on to the more serious grownup stuff. I wonder if there will be a next book in which Maria R...

    I didn't know Alex & Eliza had a sequel! ...

    3.5 historical stars I have read a few book about the Elizabeth and Alexander Hamilton. Ron Chernov's Alexander Hamilton gave one a wonderful perspective into the life and the times of this great American forefather. I, Eliza Hamilton introduced us to Eliza and provided her point of...

    3 stars - Honestly nothing much happened. Some parts felt repetitive and the ending didn't feel exactly final - However, I did love the characters! They were charming and fun to read about and I did enjoy reading the book - I loved the banter and the focus on feminism - I really ...

    DNF 30%. I absolutely loved the first book. I gave it five stars it was so good. But I just couldn't continue on with this. I got so bored. idk maybe one day I'll decide to pick it back up, who knows :-/ ...

    3.5 I loved how sassy Eliza was. Eliza called out Governor Clinton. I loved how they defined democracy but they didn't even know what it was. They thought it was compromise and respecting each other's opinions. I liked how Alex thought he saw her but it was the painting the jailbird m...

    I?ve really enjoyed this series so far and can?t wait for the third book. I love history and YA so this was super appealing to me. I liked the focus of this novel on the early stages of the Hamiltons? young marriage (even though the author took liberties with the timeline for...

    If I had been taught American History through the telling of a love story, I feel I would have remembered a lot more. History lesson (with some noted fictional elements) that was actually quite captivating. ...

    Look, I'm not sure why I read this book when I hated Alex & Eliza so profoundly; I think I was just wildly, morbidly curious as to how the fuck this story can even CONTINUE TO BE WRITTEN AS A YOUNG ADULT BOOK, SERIOUSLY, THE PREMISE IS SO GODDAMN BONKERS!! I can't believe Melissa d...

    Yikes I?m putting this on hold because I?m bored out of my freaking mind ???????????????????????????????????????????????? HOW DID I ONLY JUST FIND OUT THAT THIS EXISTED???????? I A...

    It was interesting to see Alex and Eliza as newlyweds navigating their new life together. This is less about the romance and more about their day to day lives as a married couple. I very seldom read historical fiction about real people, but I think the author did a good job with Ha...

    I was hoping this book to reach higher than my low expectations, but it didn't. It was slow moving, and nothing happened. I only enjoyed when Alex was helping Mrs. Childress because there was some jealousy and action. Overall I didn't think it was worth reading. ...

    DNF 123 PAGES IN I actually really like this book but I lost all on interest in it so I'm moving it to my DNF shelf until I feel like picking it back up ...

    *3.5* This was a nice read just a bit boring and uneventful. I thought it would cover the affair as well but I suppose that will be next book. This mostly surrounded Eliza being lonely and Hamilton being away all the time lol. Nice read just not super amazing. ...
