Book Review:

Pre-reading Thoughts:

I had timed all of my A.J York reviews perfectly so that I could read them as close to christmas as I could. I cannot wait to get into Delilahs story. It looks so short and sweet and something perfect to read in between big books

Writing Thoughts:

The writing of this book is definitely aimed at a much younger audience than what I am, mainly because the story follows the structure of a fairly tale quite closely. The writing was smooth and just had this whimsical feel to it which just made the pages fly by.

Plot Thoughts:

This story as super adorable. Delilah should definitely come stay with me so that she can keep my space clean. As mention before this story is directed at a much younger audience and thus it has an underlining message which contains a lesson. The story was uncomplicated and flat but in no way was that negative. The story’s lesson was made much clearer by the fact that it was simple and easy to read

Character Thoughts:

All the characters in this story had a whimsical, fairytale element to them. However they were uncomplicated which lead to them being one-dimensional characters which in the case of this story allowed it to progress.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I adored this cute story. It was perfect for when I desperately needed something short and fluffy.

Yours in Reading,
