Book Review: If The Shoe Fits by Julie Murphy

Book Review: If The Shoe Fits by Julie Murphy

If the Shoe Fits is the first book in Disney’s new Meant to Be series. Advertised as Disney’s first foray into contemporary romance, this book is a Cinderella retelling set during a dating show. It felt more like New Adult Chick-Lit to me than your typical adult romance, but I actually adored it for that.

Cindy has just come home from a difficult final year at college. She’s in a creative rut, and she doesn’t know what to do.

Mini TBR – May 2021

I can’t believe we’re already into May! If this were a safer year where things were open, I’d probably be hoping to go to the London MCM Comic Con, whatever it’s called. I miss being able to go look at artists stalls and go buy all the anime and game merch, sigh. But that does mean that I should have plenty of time to read!

That aside, I will be once again trying to keep this mini TBR, well, mini. Just so it isn’t hellishly difficult to write. I’ve got five books to go through with you all this month, so let’s get started!
