Book Princess Reviews, reviewing YA and Middle Grade books since 2016.
Book Princess Mandy started BPR in October 2016, thinking three reviews a day was perfection. What she didn’t realize was what she truly needed was a unique princess rating system, book tags, and a bestie co-blogger. Cue Sha’s arrival in January 2018!
Mandy and Sha learn more about the book world every day. At BPR, we act as critical readers of the novels that come our way, assessing them both as works intended for the enjoyment of teens and pieces that have the power to influence and educate. Fiction is powerful! We want to promote books that both please and inspire.
Books remain at the core of BPR, with ARC reviews, book lists, and buddy reads dropping every week. Mandy and Sha can’t stop reading, and they want you to join them every step of the way!
The Disney Princesses embody a culture of female heroism in film (inspired by literature). Children around the world grow up learning about princesses! Here at BPR, we offer the following perspective: princesses are strong. Princesses are the heroes of their own story. Princesses are the girls and women who survive their story. Disney films are not without their flaws, but we want to emphasize the strengths and encourage you to do the same in your own lives (through our reading!). To do this, we use our unique Princess Rating System to showcase the princess qualities found in each book we read.
