About this deal

the only other book i’ve read by ali hazelwood is the love hypothesis, which i liked but found especially forgettable. The characters were quite easily my favourite part, even though I did want to slap a particular sister once or twice.

This Is a great book for teenages it has quite a mature them but is full of twists and turns on every page it is the third book in the noughts and cross' series but it expains everything that has happened so far. THEN they get paired up together for an assessment that is like half there grade and its SUPER important and so they have to work together on a engineering project/mathmatical problem/ biochemistry reaserch paper. I was so excited to read it because it is written by Ali and she said it's an angsty rivals to lovers story in chess world but it was more about chess tournaments and chess championships than Mallory and Nolan and their rivals to lovers romance.How can you expect me to read 350 pages about the never ending chess tournaments and how FIDE and all the things worked in chess world. she fits the classic older sister archetype who shoulders the weight of the world and assumes the family responsibilities because if she doesn’t, everything will fall apart. yes i still have not finished this review, which means that every time this pops up for you, it will be slightly different than the last time you saw it, and this review will haunt you just as this book haunts me.

hon, if there is another reference, then i'll be throwing my phone as far as i give a flying fuckity fuck fuck about whether or not your fugly sisters farted on your face. Sephy, her mother, has told Rose virtually nothing about her father, but as Rose grows into a young adult, she unexpectedly discovers the truth about her parentage and becomes determined to find out more, to honour both sides of her heritage. That is, until she begrudgingly agrees to play in one last charity tournament and inadvertently wipes the board with notorious "Kingkiller" Nolan Sawyer: current world champion and reigning Bad Boy of chess. He wanted to play chess with her and she denied him every single time and I understand her reasons but Nolan did everything he could to earn her trust.Sephy, her mother, has told Rose virtually nothing about her father, but Rose unexpectedly discovers the truth about her parentage, with potentially devastating results. I'm also currently learning to crochet, so as you can tell I'm a super busy gal with an intense and exciting life!

no because i do apologize that you had to see that sentence, but if i had to go through 350 pages of this, so do you. TikTok was mentioned a few times, and I didn't really care, which was surprising, but it got annoying to an extent, and then Taylor Swift was mentioned, but of course I didn't mind that, have you seen the Taylor's Version in my name? Sawyer’s character works well as an example of misconstrued perceptions on a person and behind the mystique he is actually quite a lovable person who treats Mallory well.will enjoy reading this review, and read this review in it's entirety (yes i might be underestimating your attention spans) and for that i will persevere through book hell. I admire Ali Hazelwood’s ability to create a main character that the reader can’t help but root for, laying out her inner turmoil for us to see so that we feel so much when we see her going back to chess, going back to doing what she wants to do.
