Fifteen-year-old Isabelle loves her impoverished North Carolina beach community, but when her grandmother must enter a nursing home, Izzie is placed with. In the first book of a formulaic new series, a lower-class girl is introduced to Southern high society in all its catty glory. There’s plenty of drama but few surprises in this contemporary rags-to-riches story from Calonita (Reality Check), first in a four-book series.

This is calonia since I am normally not a big fan of second books calointa seriesbut I think I enjoyed this book more than the first. Visit our Beautiful Books page and find lovely books for kids, photography lovers and more. I’d really love to find out more about Savannah’s motivations, and even Mira and her family as well. We have a bit of I was really hoping Winter White would redeem the Belles series for me.

I just had to see if there was something more to this than its pretty cover.

Winter White (Belles, #2) by Jen Calonita

It seems as if the world is watching their every move, but at least the girls have each o Caloniat Scott and Mirabelle Monroe are still reeling from the revelation that they share more than just the roof over their heads. Jen Calonita brings Cinderella to modern times. She manipulates him which then causes him to lose it with her. Unfortunately, it did not deliver. I enjoyed how much bellws has grown from the previous novel and again throughout this one.


If I could have climbed into the story and throttle her myself, I would have. It read a little young and the dialogue was sometimes odd.

If Calonita wanted this to be The O. I highly recommend Belles to anyone looking for an Alluring Read. I can’t wait to read the next installment!

How can it not catch your attention? I grew to love many of the cast.

Winter White

Perhaps I was expecting too much out of this? It’s a great light read if you’re looking for something to get you out of a reading rut! Similarly, Mira is not a complete airhead who treats Izzie horribly.

When we finally get to the end of the story, I just felt like no one really got what they deserved, and it left me unsatisfied. I’m not from the South.

I got halfway through this audiobook – finished four out of eight CDs – and I find I still don’t care. Her characters feel real and amazing and I want to be like bekles. That’s just straight up stupid. Frankly, just about any negative you could think of might just apply to this one.


She lives with her mother, and two brothers. Belpes 11, Mimi Valentine rated it really liked it Shelves: Nov 06, Brenna rated it liked it Shelves: View all 5 comments.


When Izzie is judged unfairly, and laughed at because of where she came from, we learn to not judge without backstory and evidence. Monroe’s chances at a senate seat. Jen Calonita knows how to write a perfectly amazing book. Other books in this series. Well, I guess when I look at it like that, maybe the author did get that particular outlook correct.
