    2 stars. Me too, Zen. Me too. The Everlasting Rose is what I would call rushed product. This being second (and maybe the end of Camille's POV) book in the series, I had expected more from it. By that, I mean we get a satisfying entry to the series and the plot and characters ...

    The ranting revolution is here. The Belles is a book that I think of quite fondly. Sure it has issues, and yeah maybe if I read it today I wouldn't like it as much. But I admire how bold it was, it must have taken Dhonielle Clayton a great amount of courage to talk about something s...

    **3.5 Stars** I had a while to think about this. I mulled it over in my head and I'm feeling rather conflicted. On its own, The Everlasting Rose was a great book but as a sequel and a finale, I must say I am a bit disappointed. Maybe it was my fault though. One of my bad habi...

    3.5 stars rounded up to 4 because I love the world of Orleans and The Belles. The Everlasting Rose was a bit disappointing as a follow up to The Belles, which I loved. I can't quite pinpoint it, but it was missing some of the magic of the first book. Still enjoyed it, and I will def...

    Honestly I am always worried when a debut author puts their second book out. I always worry that I am comparing it too much to the first. However, since the first book by Clayton was the first book in this series, I can't help but compare it. And I have to say that the second book didn...

    *thank you so much to Netgalley & to Freeform publishing for granting me this eARC in exchange for an honest review* Whoa. Honestly that?s all I can say. Dhonielle has followed up (and maybe even surpassed) her previous work, The Belles, with book 2. Camillia is fully roun...

    Review available on march, 26th, 2019 here: https://youtu.be/fMCmtkXYUR0 It took me a bit to read because some harsh aspects if life got tangled around the lecture, and tbh i think i should re-read the whole thing again so it can unite better.onto my head, because I kinda feel there...

    Was this book even written by the same author? What a mess. Character development is all over the place. Subtlety goes out the window. Insta-love. This feels like two books crammed into one. Will there be a sequel or is the series wrapped up? I have no idea. This book is overloaded. Wh...

    I GOT THIS ARC THANKS TO NETGALLEY!! YES YES YES!! ...

    Camille has escaped from evil Sophia's clutches, but the princess has captured her Belle sisters and is building a prison that will house a monstrous creche of slave Belles to cater to the demands for more beauty. I think this is one of those, it's not you, it's me books. I enjoy...

    This was even better than the first book! The stakes were higher, and the writing was still just as gorgeous yet toned down to better get the point across. I literally could rant about the writing forever because it is BEAUTIFUL. Camelia and Rèmy are SO CUTE I COULD RANT FOREVER. ...

    2 stars. Me too, Zen. Me too. The Everlasting Rose is what I would call rushed product. This being second (and maybe the end of Camille's POV) book in the series, I had expected more from it. By that, I mean we get a satisfying entry to the series and the plot and characters ...

    The Belles - ???? The Everlasting Rose - ?? 1/2 Ehhhhh... I'm a little disappointed. No one is as sad as I am. I mean, I was dealing with multiple health issues while trying to finish this, so I don't know if that impacted my overall enjoyment. Also, I feel like thi...

    The ranting revolution is here. The Belles is a book that I think of quite fondly. Sure it has issues, and yeah maybe if I read it today I wouldn't like it as much. But I admire how bold it was, it must have taken Dhonielle Clayton a great amount of courage to talk about something s...

    **3.5 Stars** I had a while to think about this. I mulled it over in my head and I'm feeling rather conflicted. On its own, The Everlasting Rose was a great book but as a sequel and a finale, I must say I am a bit disappointed. Maybe it was my fault though. One of my bad habi...

    The Everlasting Rose was not as an awesome Book 1. The 4 stars i gave The Everlasting Rose is in honour of Book 1. Book 2 isn't really worth it. ...

    3.5 stars rounded up to 4 because I love the world of Orleans and The Belles. The Everlasting Rose was a bit disappointing as a follow up to The Belles, which I loved. I can't quite pinpoint it, but it was missing some of the magic of the first book. Still enjoyed it, and I will def...

    Honestly I am always worried when a debut author puts their second book out. I always worry that I am comparing it too much to the first. However, since the first book by Clayton was the first book in this series, I can't help but compare it. And I have to say that the second book didn...

    I was really hoping for more. Anyway, its better than the first book. Most of the story was about hiding in safe houses and planning. And at the end it was fast paced; all what Camille has planned was happened too quickly. And.... why does Camille do so many stupid things in this ...

    A solid continuation and finale to the world which began in The Belles. I definitely enjoyed returning to the world and seeing the rebellion grow. This was much more about taking back control and defining a new way to live which is not controlled by a ruler or beauty standards. It's go...

    "The journey home from Trianon feels a thousand moments longer than the first one" errrr.... aehm... ?? I did not expect that much from this book, the second in a series that was already flawed from the beginning... but you know, I really enjoyed the first one and I was ...

    "Deficiency is weakness. Beauty is power." Last year, Dhonielle Clayton introduced us to The Belles last year and their illustrious world filled with lush landscapes and beautiful men and women. However, as stunning as their world can be, what lies underneath demonstrates ugliness ...

    A decent sequel but as a possible finale it leaves something to be desired. I feel like the author purposely left the door open a crack so she can come back and write more if she desires (and/or the interest is there). However it's still closed enough that if she doesn't we'll survive....

    The Everlasting Rose is a short, concise ending to a game-changing duology. Do yourself a favor and read The Belles and The Everlasting Rose back-to-back for the best reading experience. ...

    The Everlasting Rose by Dhonielle Clayton picks up where The Belles left off. With Camille, her sister Edel, and her guard Rémy on the run, they're on a mission to find Princess Charlotte and put a halt to Sophia's reign of terror. Similar to how I felt about The Belles, The Eve...

    *thank you so much to Netgalley & to Freeform publishing for granting me this eARC in exchange for an honest review* Whoa. Honestly that?s all I can say. Dhonielle has followed up (and maybe even surpassed) her previous work, The Belles, with book 2. Camillia is fully roun...

    Review available on march, 26th, 2019 here: https://youtu.be/fMCmtkXYUR0 It took me a bit to read because some harsh aspects if life got tangled around the lecture, and tbh i think i should re-read the whole thing again so it can unite better.onto my head, because I kinda feel there...

    Was this book even written by the same author? What a mess. Character development is all over the place. Subtlety goes out the window. Insta-love. This feels like two books crammed into one. Will there be a sequel or is the series wrapped up? I have no idea. This book is overloaded. Wh...

    I GOT THIS ARC THANKS TO NETGALLEY!! YES YES YES!! ...

    Camille has escaped from evil Sophia's clutches, but the princess has captured her Belle sisters and is building a prison that will house a monstrous creche of slave Belles to cater to the demands for more beauty. I think this is one of those, it's not you, it's me books. I enjoy...

    This was even better than the first book! The stakes were higher, and the writing was still just as gorgeous yet toned down to better get the point across. I literally could rant about the writing forever because it is BEAUTIFUL. Camelia and Rèmy are SO CUTE I COULD RANT FOREVER. ...

    A solid 3.75 Stars rounded up This was not was I was expecting but I liked it quite a nit ...

    I felt like I just read the first book but made even less sense. RTC ...

    **3.5 Stars** I had a while to think about this. I mulled it over in my head and I'm feeling rather conflicted. On its own, The Everlasting Rose was a great book but as a sequel and a finale, I must say I am a bit disappointed. Maybe it was my fault though. One of my bad habi...

    A decent sequel but as a possible finale it leaves something to be desired. I feel like the author purposely left the door open a crack so she can come back and write more if she desires (and/or the interest is there). However it's still closed enough that if she doesn't we'll survive....

    Review available on march, 26th, 2019 here: https://youtu.be/fMCmtkXYUR0 It took me a bit to read because some harsh aspects if life got tangled around the lecture, and tbh i think i should re-read the whole thing again so it can unite better.onto my head, because I kinda feel there...

    Was this book even written by the same author? What a mess. Character development is all over the place. Subtlety goes out the window. Insta-love. This feels like two books crammed into one. Will there be a sequel or is the series wrapped up? I have no idea. This book is overloaded. Wh...

    I GOT THIS ARC THANKS TO NETGALLEY!! YES YES YES!! ...

    Camille has escaped from evil Sophia's clutches, but the princess has captured her Belle sisters and is building a prison that will house a monstrous creche of slave Belles to cater to the demands for more beauty. I think this is one of those, it's not you, it's me books. I enjoy...

    This was even better than the first book! The stakes were higher, and the writing was still just as gorgeous yet toned down to better get the point across. I literally could rant about the writing forever because it is BEAUTIFUL. Camelia and Rèmy are SO CUTE I COULD RANT FOREVER. ...
